“We are not to look to what men in themselves deserve but to attend to the image of God which exists in all and to which we owe all honor and love.” – John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
