    Because most of the pre-Abrahamic religions treated the genders more or less equally. Some venerated women. Men could not deal with it. They created new mythologies as a method of societal control.

    God created Adam first.Genesis 1,2

    1 Corinthians 11:3

    But I want you to know that the head of every man is the Christ; in turn, the head of a woman is the man; in turn, the head of the Christ is God

    "He" is symbolic referring to God. In fact Jehovah is a spirit.- John 4:24

    Source(s): Is God Everywhere, Omnipresent? Does the Bible teach that God is everywhere? Why can you be confident that he resides in a specific place, yet also knows you personally?

    God is who He is; He is unchanged.

    Even all the references to angels in the Bible are presented in a male form. An angel is always a "he" rather than a "she." The Greek word for "angel" in the NT is {angelos} which itself is a masculine noun.

    Therefore, we believe that the first female (not female animals) created by God, was Eve.

    At the very beginning, we get to know {Elohim}. "The striking thing about this name for God is that it is in the plural form, yet it is accompanied by a singular verb. [Genesis 1:1] “In the beginning God (Elohim, plural) created (“HE created”, singular) the heavens and the earth.” -- This is where the "Trinity" concept originated -- Interestingly, the word "Elohim" is grammatically plural rather than singular. I think that settles it!

    To return to the gender aspect, we see that God the Father is compared to a human father [Psalm 103: 13-14]; Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, is sometimes called "the Son of Man," indicating a male sex. [Luke 19:10], and of course the Holy Spirit is referred to as a "He" in [John 16: 7-8].

    When that character was created only men counted, women were just considered property.

    If the god of the Bible was a woman, it would read,

    "God created the heavens and the earth, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

    And God said, 'Let there be light', and there was light.

    And God said, 'Could I just see the darkness again?'"

    God is neither a man or a woman. God is spirit.

    • norine4 months agoReport

      Yesmar is RIGHT >>>in spiritual terms<<< "GOD IS A SPIRIT" (John 4:24) and "There is neither male NOR female >>>IN<<< Christ Jesus" (Gal 3:28) who is GOD; A SPIRIT!

    God does not have a gender as we understand genders. Because English does not allow for neutrality in personhood, we never refer to God in the neutral form of ‘it’. God is the Life Force that created the galaxies; He wants to be known as a Father, but reveals through sacred scripture that He has a mother’s heart.

    God is the fullness of maleness and femaleness. Gen.1:27

    Wisdom is also a person, she is known as ‘Lady Wisdom’.

    Details about her are found in Proverbs 2.

      "Because English does not allow for neutrality in personhood" it most certainly does. it is "They"..
