WHY MAN IS IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, BUT NOT ANIMALS
Self-consciousness (able to make decisions)

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."  {Joshua 24:15}

Concepts (able to understand and have thoughts)

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." {1 Corinthians 13:11} 

Language (able to have vocabulary that changes and grows)

"Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."  {Colossians 4:6}

Judgment (able to make comparisons)

"To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?"  {Isaiah 40:18}

Reasoning (able to forgive with understanding)

"To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices."  {2 Corinthians 2:10-11} 

Intuitiveness (able to perceive things)

"Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."

Self-determination (able to pursue desires)

"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."  {Psalms 37:4} 

Consciousness and morality (able to discern right and wrong)

"He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still."  {Revelation 22:11}

Sense of humor (able to laugh)

"A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;"  {Ecclesiastes 3:4}
