The spiritual man is not a “social animal” (Hebrews 2:5–9)

According to the Bible, the human being is spiritual because he has been created in the image of God, like the angels in the heavens (the word “man” in most cases applies to both man and woman). In the book of Revelation, the glorified Jesus Christ speaks to the seven angels, each responsible for one of seven congregations. They are obviously men or messengers, because sometimes, Jesus Christ reproaches them serious faults, not attributable to heavenly angels (Revelation 2 and 3). In Malachi 2:7, the priests or teachers of the nation of Israel had the status of angels or messengers: “For the lips of a priest should safeguard knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth, because he is the messenger of Jehovah of armies”. The word “messenger” refers to the word “angel”.
In Hebrews 2:5–9, the apostle Paul writes that God created man a little lower than the angels: “For it is not to angels that he has subjected the inhabited earth to come, about which we are speaking. But in one place a certain witness said: “What is man that you keep him in mind, or a son of man that you take care of him? You made him a little lower than angels; you crowned him with glory and honor, and appointed him over the works of your hands. All things you subjected under his feet.” By subjecting all things to him, God left nothing that is not subject to him. Now, though, we do not yet see all things in subjection to him. But we do see Jesus, who was made a little lower than angels, now crowned with glory and honor for having suffered death, so that by God’s undeserved kindness he might taste death for everyone”.
Therefore, given these biblical texts, the human being is fundamentally spiritual in origin, and he is not a “social animal”. Man can have close relationships with his Creator, he has the capacity to manifest faith in invisible realities: “Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen. For by means of it, the men of ancient times had witness borne to them. By faith we perceive that the systems of things were put in order by God’s word, so that what is seen has come into existence from things that are not visible” (Hebrews 11:1–3). He has a capacity for understanding abstract concepts, such as time: “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). This intellectual faculty allows him to look back in the past, to live the present and to project himself into the future. This God-given mental capacity, which ranges from deduction induction, allowed him to discover the mathematical laws which are the basis of chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy and many other scientific applications and technical processes… He has the capacity to appreciate what is beautiful in creation, and he is able to reproduce this beauty in an artistic way, with the prism of his own sensitivity…
