According to a German weekly, a minister in Germany’s government said that it was fine to use the neutral article “das” instead of the masculine “der” when referring to God. The minister who made the comment is a member of the Christian Democratic Union party.
The Judeo-Christian God is described as a masculine God. In the Old Testament, Isaiah the prophet refers to Him as our Father. The Gospel of John refers to Christ as the eternally begotten Son of God. Begotten is the past participle of beget which means the father or sire of. Moreover, the masculine third personal pronoun (He, Him, His) is applied to God throughout the Bible including Psalm 23 and Hebrews 1.
It is possible that angels are genderless beings. The New Testament says they neither marry nor are given in marriage.
For many of my readers, this is common knowledge but my blog is also visited by agnostics and atheists who are unfamiliar with the word of God.
