what do you call god "HE or SHE"
I ussually call god as "he"because he is king and rule of the universe,however I heard most people also call "god as she ,because of symbolic of "mother of yesus"what are you people,do you call "god "
God is epicene (first definition according to dictionary.com) To state that God is solely 'He' or even solely 'She' is limiting the Almighty to our own little box.
Therefore I tend to refer to God as He/She or (S)He.
you call god he. but in your mind and believe god should always be the almighthy he is undescribable..
While I call God "He," this is basically for two reasons. First, it's habitual. Second, it's traditionally grammatically correct to say the word "he" for a group of people that have mixed sexes, and I think that rule can be applied to the concept of a "sexless" God.
God is, I believe, neither male nor female, but for the sake of convenience, "He" seems to fit well enough.
On the other hand, I don't have a problem recognizing God's more feminine traits, and so I can totally understand why some people refer to God as "She." Either way would be fine by me.
What would point would be in God having a sex? God is the Supreme Being. God is one of kind. God is eternal. Gos does not need to procreate in order to maintain the species; God is the species. I'm sure if God chose that God could be male on second and female the next. The only purpose in that would be to communicate in a form the a human would understand. It is said that we are made in gods image. A mirror conveys our image but not our substance. God does not need to have our physical properties.
Years ago I saw the referral of sHE. Contains both genders. Sounds okay to me. Peace.
I call God God. If that is the name for the being the that is the name I use. If I am specifically referring to a male or female deity from some scripture then I would use the terms Lord Jesus, Buddha, Krshina or The Goddes Isis, Laxmi, because these being according to the tradition have an identifyable human form. Other wise God is God.
I hate to use George Carlin to answer two religious questions today, but in the immortal words of aforementioned comedian : "No woman could or would fuck things up this bad."
Isn't that a bit like debating how how many angels can dance on the point of a needle?
God does not seem to mind, whatever, whenever, whatsoever you call him/her, at best you get his human answering machines.
dabeaner, EdG, you have me in stitches!
Considering God, in the Bible, created the male first, then the female, so they could procreate and multiply, we know it takes a male and female to accomplish this. I assume God to be a male force because His Spirit overshadowed Mary and impregnated her. A female cannot make a female pregnant. Jesus is God in the flesh and was born a male, also. God is Spirit, so spirit is really sexless ~ it's just He manifested Himself as male in these two examples.
God is also said to be "invisible" in that Jesus is said to be the image of the invisible God. Jesus was male, so we assume He is the only visible image of God. Even the Holy Spirit, which is God, is invisible. When we see Jesus, we will be seeing God (His image).
God is like both he and she. God produces and reproduces
when not in the flesh like i am now
I don't think it is a matter of God being a male or female as God is a supreme being and most likely would not apply to God. I believe it is for our benefit being humans as a reference point that we most likely choose HE since is always referred to "The Father". BTW I really liked EdG's answer even though it is a joke
God has no gender as we can relate to him as to other human being.
I don't know if God exists or not and I don't think we will ever know as our brain although evolving is able to evolve only to some extent.
Every day when we learn something new we just realize how little we know....
Nor he, nor she, God is a wisdom, harmony and love something humans will never achieve to grasp.
Before you give it a gender, you must demonstrate that it exists.
Before you can attempt to prove one, you'd need to name it and then set the parameters that you think fit it.
One of those parameters would be gender, assuming a god would have a gender.
Whatever be God's form or gender, we look up to God at all times and in all situations. It is our own perception of God that makes us believe or disbelieve God (My god! I can't use a pronoun because I don't believe in using one).
There is one Supreme being guiding us and that is God, I don't think there's anything more to it. This is my belief.
In creation, we both witness masculine and feminine gender. Hence God, the creator can be called either way. Many worship Mother Mary, some worship "infant Jesus". There is no taboo for worshiping god in the way you like. Some great poets have described God as a "Mad one" in their poems out of love or devotion. Hence the term God admits all pronouns and adjectives.

I'm not a religious person for the most part, probably an agnostic/christian hybrid, if that makes sense. Anyhow, some people seem to believe that God is a He, but if God is all knowing and everything, then wouldn't that make God a She as well? I think it's because of the male dominated society...

I am a spiritual person -- this does not define my beliefs or my religion. What it does mean is that I am true to myself and my beliefs. I was raised a Christian and still have the basic beliefs, that God and Jesus do exist. I pray to God and I talk with Jesus for guidance and healing -- I also...
