    Re: Is God male or female?

    The answers to your question are respectively "neither" and, if you want to get technical about things, "male."

    It is "neither" because God is ultimately a sexless incorporeal spirit of limitless power and intelligence.

    That being said, however; it should be pointed out that Christ was, and according to most theology, still is, a man. Therefore, God can, technically speaking, be said to be "male" in nature rather than female.

    What does Jesus's gender have to do with God's gender?

    Doesn't the Bible refer to him as Him repeatedly and describe Him as a male?

    Let's see. Women have periods, babies, menopause...

    I'd guess male.

    Are you implying that since women give birth and men do not that God is female?

    Both, and neither.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

    With male pronouns, yes. Again, however, given the fact that God is a spiritual, rather than physical being, this doesn't really mean much of anything.

    I thought that the Trinity was Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. Doesn't that mean that Jesus IS God? Then what is the Father?
