Episcopal Church considers making God gender neutral

Postby HitRed on Fri Jul 06, 2018 11:14 am

On of my favorite Christian writers is Julian of Norwich. The short from written when she was a young adult is one of the greatest books ever written. The long form, written 40 years latter, showed she changed and considered God female. This ended the possibility of her becoming a Saint in most Christian Churches. The Pronouns from the Old and New T are very specific though. Hard to rewrite history.

The Jewish bible? I thought you Christians go by the new and improved New Testament?

In theology, patriarchy is a big thing.

God has a split personality

Thank God for google:



God in three persons
The Bible says that God exists in the form of three persons, although He is one God. These three persons are said to be the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit. According to the Bible, nobody has ever seen the Father, except the Son and the angels.3 The Father is the fully-expressed glory of God in heaven. The Son is the image of God4 expressed in bodily form,5 who existed in eternity past as part of the Godhead,6 but voluntarily gave up some of his glory to come to earth as a Jewish male.7 In this sense, the representation of God on earth could be said to be male. Likewise, every time "The Angel of the Lord" appeared on earth in the Old Testament, He appeared as a male. Most Christian theologians interpret the appearance of God in the Old Testament as the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ. The third person of the Godhead is the Holy Spirit, who works through believers, but has never appeared on earth in human form

If you would watch the movie, "Dharma", you would know that God is female and looks exactly like Alanis Morissette.

Nothing more needs to be said.

He has all the willies. He is the Alpha Male and the OMG of all willies. Willies were created in His image. He sculpted the first willy, and when the last willy dies, He will be looking at it. And judging.

Seeing as how all religion is bogus, I fail to see what difference the sex of a nonexistent god makes.
