God Cannot be a Woman Because...

Recommended Posts

God cannot be a woman because a female would be called a "goddess." There are a bunch of other reasons too, but that seems to me the most obvious.

Word salad Is not a reason.  God -- Goddess -- this is not an argument.  In any event, do you really want to insist that God has a body?

Putting aside the issue that neither is G-d a male, apparently you have never read Jewish scripture, the Tanakh, what you would probably call the Old Testament, in Hebrew. As best as I recall, there is only one instance where a female pages deity is referred as a deity. In that instance the Tanakh uses the same word to refer to her as is used to refer to G-d - elohey.
