Church considers making god gender neutral

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/06/episcopal-church-considers-making-god-gende...

Quote:
The Episcopal Church formed a committee Wednesday to “provide a pathway” toward revising the Book of Common Prayer to include gender-neutral language.

Church leaders called for immediate revisions to correct the “overwhelming use of masculine language” throughout the book, arguing that the language is now a hindrance to spiritual inclusion, according to the Episcopal Church website.

“As long as ‘men’ and ‘God’ are in the same category, our work toward equity will not just be incomplete. I honestly think it won’t matter in some ways,” Wil Gafney, a professor of the Hebrew Bible and strong advocate for the edit, told the Washington Post


The Episcopal News Service shared further concerns from church leaders that the current language has created a “barrier to evangelizing young people.” 

Kathleen Moore, a seminarian from the Diocese of Vermont, said she tries to help the youth see that gendered language gets in the way of faith in God.

“Let’s let God be God,” Moore told the religious news agency.

A subcommittee was tasked with providing resolutions as part of a 12-year revision process, followed by a three-year “trial” period.

Because revision of the prayer book is part of the church’s constitution, “adoption of a new book requires votes in two consecutive General Conventions to take effect, placing final approval on the agenda in 2030,” according to the church.

Weren't we taught the Lord's Prayer...
Didn't Christ teach us that Prayer and didn't he always refer to God the Father.
Doesn't it start OUR FATHER, who art in heaven?

You're right Grendel.  "God' must be male. Has to be.  We won't have any of this new fangled rubbish about a female being able to impregnate a married virgin woman.  Nah, just not on.

Married? Perhaps you meant unmarried.

No, I meant 'married' as the term was then understood.

God: Male: Knowledge

Gaia: Female: Life

Both are 'entwined' like a strand of DNA.

A woman 'creates' a child.
A man 'evolves' a child.


To imply 'gender-neutral' is to dissolve, disagree, disengage from both of the above.
Basically, any Church who accepts 'Gender-neutral' is in fact, renouncing 'GOD' (as 'he' truly is).

There really is no such thing as a 'gender-neutral', unless its some freak-mutation of deformation ...which a very 'few' people experience with both male & female sexual organs at birth (parents did too much drugs & alcohol  Roll Eyes). But even then, the person exhibits only one of either sex in 'behaviour' and living.

Gender-Neutral?
Sounds more like people who just hate Men & Women.

As for your comment I was taught this...

Quote:
Mary was a 1st-century BC Galilean Jewish woman of Nazareth, and the mother of Jesus, according to the New Testament and the Quran. The gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin; according to Christian teaching she conceived Jesus while a virgin, through the Holy Spirit. The miraculous conception took place when she was already betrothed to Joseph.


Betrothed would be engaged, not married BTW. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Virgin would be, hadn't had sex yet. Roll Eyes

They were not married until the bloody sheets were hung out after the the conjugal night.

"5654 betrothal

The period of engagement preceding marriage; betrothal was a binding contract established between two families and sealed by the exchange of gifts. During this period the couple did not live together; sexual relations with each other at this stage was regarded as equivalent to adultery. "

Yes.......there are all sorts of ways they try to explain away the fact that 'God' snuck in while Joseph was at work.....and Mary was 'betrothed/espoused' to Joseph.
