No wait.. I can figure this out with critical thinking.

Hmmm. He admits he's a father, but ignores his children. God is a rapper!

That is why God told us to refer to him in a certain way to separate him from all others. The Hindu have like 1,000,000 different Gods.

But there is only one true God, and no one comes to Him but through the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Erm...well...seeing as how He is referred to as "He" in the Bible...and everywhere else...then...yeah

Gods are male. Goddesses are female. It's not rocket surgery.
Link Posted: 3/6/2015 7:54:39 AM EDT
For a brief period I will be serious. The pronoun 'He' is used merely for our convenience. G*d is not human, nor male or female. G*d is. And that is generally beyond our comprehension. Their are traits of G*d that may seem male or female, but that is a momentary period. HurricaineAllie wanted to talk about G*d the other day. She told me that G*d is an energy that is intelligent and holds us all together, she is 13.

In the bible it shows God in masculine terms, but there is feminine imagery as well. The number 1 reason God is a male in my opinion is Christ's own words of "Father". Father Son and Holy Spirit...

Now you could look at the classic boyz in the hood when Doughboy is talking to his female acquaintance and they discuss it. One of them says God can't be a she because there wouldn't be any wars .

So it's both, or some kind of blend, say 75/25 ratio of male/female?

God is perfection. The male "he" pronoun is generally used in Western Culture, but God is neither.

Nuh uh. My sagas say that's not true.
Link Posted: 3/6/2015 8:58:37 AM EDT
The question itself is a perfect example of the small mindedness that created God;

We crave a Patriarchal figure of an all powerful being that will take care of us.

We want Mommy, or Daddy.

We created God in our own image.

If there is a superbeing, a creator, I'm sure it's form is something far beyond our ability to comprehend, or imagine.

My simple little brain imagines a multi-dimensional intelligent energy field unbounded by time or space.

YMMV.

God only takes 10% of your income, so can't be a women.

Ya know, whether you believe the Christian concept of God is correct or not, you would think anyone living in our society would have a basic understanding of that concept.

Philosophers have long realized that everything is caused by something else. Logically then there has to be some foundation. There has to be a first cause. Something in the universe must be fundamental, eternal, and uncreated.

The “gods” you are speaking of, even if they are real, are created beings. As such they may be more powerful than humans, they may be smarter, they may be wiser, but they are still created beings, like we are. Assuming they are real, they arose out of the fundamental “stuff” of existence.

When a Christian speaks of God they aren’t referring to a created being. They are referring to the uncreated first cause. God is the author of all existence. Nothing created God because God is eternal an uncreated. The Great I AM.

This is why the Monotheistic religions are (generally) so adamant that no one should try to make images of God. Doing so conveys the impression that the Monotheist believes God is just another skydaddy who popped out of some titan’s forehead and who grants blessings in exchange for sacrifices.

As to whether God is a man or a woman… God revealed himself in the Bible to be male. That doesn’t mean he is male as he is beyond such things. Sex is a property of higher biological life. It is not a property of the First Cause except to the extent God wants to reveal himself in that way.
Link Posted: 3/6/2015 9:26:46 AM EDT
Why does a theoretical god have to be in the human image at all?

Why assume sex?

Why assume form?

can't know, can you? Hell, if "god" was ever seen on earth, would that entity not appear in a form palatable to humans, rather than true form (if god wasn't of human form)?

there's no way to know.

All of your question's answers hinge on whether this is a troll thread or not.

God is clearly a man. Only a man could go 2,000+ years without communicating and believe that the relationship was just fine. If God was a woman we'd be getting a new prophet each week to remind us of all the stuff we promised to do last week but never did and God doesn't really understand why we didn't listen to her like we promised.

Imagine if God was a woman.

"BEHOLD, I was sent by the LORD thy GOD."

"Oh Holy Prophet, why have you been sent?"

"Just to talk."


Link Posted: 3/6/2015 9:41:01 AM EDT
Both, one of Gods names is El-Shaddai which means God Almighty. El points to the power of God Himself. Shaddai seems to be derived from another word meaning breast, which implies that Shaddai signifies one who nourishes, supplies, and satisfies. It is God as El who helps, but it is God as Shaddai who abundantly blesses with all manner of blessings.

God took what woman is from man, and that is why when a man and a woman are together they complement each other. All that man and woman are, is a copy of God. Made in his image and likeness.
