I've been thinking recently about God and whatnot, and I've come to an ultimate conclusion, at least about something that should be changed within the entire Christian rulebook -- and trust me, this is a big one.
God should not be addressed as He.
Now, I feel like I have rather simple reasoning for this; if there is this omnipotent, omnipresent being occupying this world, isn't addressing it a 'He' suggesting limitation to an all-powerful being? Like, that since God is a He, then it certainly can't be a She, which means that God isn't this being that can do whatever, whenever, however.
So yes, whenever I refer to God.. I generally use the word it (trust me, gets really hard to do sometimes).
Obviously, the use of He stems from back when the bible was being written; where it was male dominated -- and since men were the rulers, God HAD to be a He. Men were regarded as 'more human' than women; entitled to a greater ability to live than their Y chromosome-less counterparts. So even the thought of regarding God as a She, or perhaps even an It would be heresy and pure insanity, mainly because the men were on such a high horse that any reference to God not being the same gender as them would severely emasculate the men. So perhaps there was a somewhat plausible reason to such a term being used back then, but now when we live in a society where women can vote, and are regarded as equals to men (unfortunately, not in every single way possible.. but we're getting there); there shouldn't be any excuse that God still needs to be given an actual gender, and I also assume that some extreme Christian sexists will use God's apparent gender to bring women down a peg in their eyes.
So really, is it not logical that we throw away giving God a gender, and instead give another term? God is not the father of all, it is also the mother of all as well. Referring to God in some gender-neutral term (please, figure something better than it..) allows God to remain all-powerful and without any sort of limitation..
