Is God Masculine?
Why do we use a masculine name for God as a pronoun? Now, this comes up often by people who want to say that we should be open-minded to the fact that God can use female genders or that God is a female. They would like us to think about that, that the question is very simple. When you get challenged with this, the first question to ask the person is, whether or not they believe that a person should be able to be used the pronoun that they identify with. In other words, we live in a culture that tries to say that everybody has a right to the gender of their choice based on how they identify. If that is the case, well, the very simple answer is that God identifies as a male.
