Sex of God Response

The amount of response I've received about my last post has been incredible. It's not been a full day and I would say this is the most buzz I've gotten from a single post. Whether criticism or affirmation, feedback is always appreciated.

The thing about blogs, or writing in general, is that sometimes you realize something you could have added or should have added after the publication. It happens to the best of us. I'm not taking back anything from the last post, but things could have been worded differently.

What I want to clarify is that God is neither gender. This is summed up very well in an excerpt from an article a good friend sent me:

"Spirits—because they are non-corporeal beings—have no physical body, and thus, by definition, are incapable of possessing gender. In speaking of the humans who one day will inhabit the heavenly realm, Jesus remarked that they “neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as angels” (Matthew 22:30). His point was that we shall not take up our earthly gender roles in heaven, just as the angels, as spirit beings, have played no gender roles throughout their existence. Similarly, God, as a Spirit Being Who inhabits the heavenly realm, has no gender."

The rest of this article can be found by clicking here.

Again, I appreciate the responses, and ask that you do not hesitate in the future to do so. I have tested the contact me box to the side of the page and it works perfectly, so I can receive responses from there.

Still writing when I can, and all is going good in that regard. Sequel is almost finished, just last edits to go. I've unfortunately lost the means that produced my first cover image, so I'm going to attempt to do that myself. Let's see how that goes. However, if anyone knows of a graphic artist that would be willing to help, I'd appreciate it.

Be kind to one another.
