Are only Males (Man) made in the image of God and not Women?
Well, Yes and also no.
I used to be in agreement with the other commenters that man in verse 1:26 should be understood asexually as humanity and that there is no difference in the inherent image-bearing nature of either male or female humans...
That was until I noticed that Paul didn't seem to ...
Biblically speaking, the answer to this question is quite simple: No.
Both males and females were created in the image of God.
