Well, if God is Omnipotenet, God could be male, female, both, neither, or some weird third choice He (or She, or It) wants to make up. God is labeled with a masculine gender simply because people in the early church simply could not come to terms with the fact that a woman is just as good as a man, and either could in charge.

Perfectly clear, no wonder we don't have any problems.

BTW if its not clear, I find this thread ludicrous.

^ this' will be one of my basis.

Thats if you go by the Bible. But obviously that text doesnt give a direct answer.

Yup, this is a good answer. Are you implying that when you pray, whatever you think God is, that very moment - would be the God where you were praying (so, it'll vary from time to time: from man to woman - to a thing - and to something else)? Unless, you don't pray... and i will respect it.

If god exists its beyond having gender. gender is a living thing...

Giving God a gender kinda gives me the heebie-jeebies. I mean, what does "in his image" really mean? Have you ever seen an artist do a self portrait? Some times they look nothing like reality. Maybe God just doodled what was in his heart, and we're just some abstract dream of what God believes he is.

In the original Hevrew the "he" isn't gender specific. Sorry.

There's absolutely no basis one way or the other. I can say anything and it will be just as likely as any other theory.


ACTULLY I beg to differ there maybe something. Adam and Eve... Adam was made first in gods image, or so they say, there for God is a man. He then took a rib of adam to make Eve right?
So by putting this together I've come to the conclusion God (if excistent) is a man.

Well since history tells us that men are better than women I'm going to just agree with them. Though the actual differences between us aren't really all that massive. Just like though everyone looks different the actual difference genetically is something like .01%. I'm not convinced it matters whether he is a man or a woman. Not to trivialize the issue but fundamentally the more serious issues are probably "Does he exist?", "Can you prove it?", "What's the point in believing in something that relies purely on faith?", and other things of that nature.
