If you believe in God, do you believe God is a he, a she, or some other term?

In all honesty,Im starting to lose the little faith I actually had.Although if there is a god,Im tempted to say its a he,and that he´s about 12 years old

All the crap thats going on in the world,all the natural disasters,all the deaths etc..I mean,whats he doing? watching TV? Playing video games!??

HELLO!!?? We could use a little help down here!!!

Thanks Gina! I don't know if you were trying to be funny, but your post gave me a good laugh! But in all honesty, I think I agree with you.

I know where it SHOULD go, but I didn't want to put it there. Do you care to contribute?

I always think of God as my Heavenly Father, so I guess I'll say a "he," but honestly, I don't think it really matters, he, she, it, God's real, and works wonders in my life!

Honestly, just again trying to be helpful. Not sure what I've done for you to be angry with me

Torrie, I have a tendency to overreact the 2nd week of every month! lol! It will all be over by Sunday..maybe.

And I see somebody went behind my BACK and requested this to be moved over here--wonder who did that. I don't like coming up in here...I'm bound to get banned for sure in these parts.

It's possible one of the mods just saw it and decided it should be moved. What forum it's in is no matter anyway, just post in this thread only.

I voted "he" because thats how I was raised and how the Bible we used spoke of God. In all reality, I don't know.

I believe God to be neither male or female but rather the source of all life without any physical form. The closest in form I would say would be more like an infinite ocean of light far brighter than a million suns yet would not hurt the spiritual eyes.

Other. Because He is a spirit, I don't believe Him to be male in the physical sense, but that Scriptures describe to him using masculine terms (Him, He, Father) to convey His attributes in a way that our tangible minds can understand. While there are passages that convey His nurturing side by comparing Him to a mother, for the most part He is conveyed as guiding and protective in a fatherly way. I think its intended for us to understand how He wants us to have a relationship with Him; more than just God and creation, but also Father and child.

I don't believe in God.
But if by chance I'm wrong (and I don't think I am), then I thoroughly believe God is a man. My reasoning is that if a woman were running the big show, things would be a whole lot different.

And all that jealousy stuff, you know, strange gods, keep holy the sabbath, no other gods before me thing, it sounds more like a jealous boyfriend than a benevolent, omni-powerful god. If he's so powerful, why is he so insecure, hmmm? He sounds alot like my BFF's ex husband, really. His version of it was, "Thou shalt have no other males added on thy Facebook! Thou shalt not spend time with other men without me, for I am jealous, possessive and insecure! Thou shalt do whatever I say, for I am entitled to reign over you because of my Y chromosome!"
