Why Do People Think If There Is A God It's A Man? (hence, HIM)

    If there is a God why does everybody think it's a man(hence HIM). Or that it would be anything even vaguely human. Gender is a human characteristic.

      You know why Hokey. Cause men wrote/told the stories.

      Why would it be even vaguely human. Would it need a nose to breathe? Ears to catch sound waves? Eyes to interpret light? Opposable thumbs to.. Eh, nevermind. That's blasphemy.

        Yep, men made God in their own image, and then pretended it was the other way around.

      Actually, most do not see Him as a coporeal being.  In fact, most slam our faith for proclaiming that He is a perfected Man of flesh and bone.  Identifying Him as an actual being and not just a "spirit" helps magnify the purpose and intent of man's journey in mortality.  Yes, I believe that He, Himself, went through His own mortality on a world He called home.  He triumphed and did those things that qualified Him for perfection and exaltation.  In essence, this is the perpetuation of eternal life.

      Because each of those who believe there to be a "GOD", will have different perceptions on whether or not "IT" resembles humankind, simply because of the "Bible" of religion purports "GOD" as a man.

      Some women believe IT to be a Women. Just to be different or so they can relate to the "GOD" concept.

      It's about their individual connection to said thing. smile

      If god were a woman, men couldn't possibly keep their minds on what she had to say as they ogled her omniscious cleavage.

      Because when we were children we had been told God was an old man with a white, long bear, wearing a white cloak  mad

      Hence the 'trauma' lol

    God has no gender but I suppose because he made man first so we refer him by his creation

    Lets see...

    Creation:

    Men: deposit their seed, and bail, only interfering when required.

    Women:  Stick around and nurture their creation, making sure it comes to fruition with as little trouble as possible.



    God must be a man.

      Good point. Only I'd change it to "only interfering when annoyed".

    Men contain the seed of God.

    With that seed they recognise themselves and live as one with God their father.

    Or they die as men.

    Because of he is a man we can expect him to let us down, if he was a woman the world would be perfect...

    God is the two that became one thus His existence over all.

    Man is his image that became male and female that means the one becoming two.

    The male and female must combine to one to reproduce but they must separate in order to form the right combination.

    With God who is spiritual it is the same.

    So when we as men take our two spiritual part, which have the likeness of the make and female. And combine them into one, we then ascend onto the throne of the Most high as His son.

    God only has sons, the female is within the male.
    So  females must become as male to be sons of God.
