Ok, ladies and gentlemen. I noticed one of my friends referenced God on multiple occasion as “She” instead of “Him”. I didn’t think much of it besides that it deviates from the norm, but then he and I, our thoughts, and what we say particularly tend to be radical. I wonder if it is natural or forcefully rebellion, or if it is rebellion at all. Lets get to the point of this post to save you from my ramblings. Just another day in the life of me. 🙂
What is God? What is Allah? What is Krishna? What is any deity you worship? Does he, or she, have a physical form? If so, why do religions represent these celestial beings in that manner? Why do followers of a any religion who have depicted their deity in a physical form cater their deity to a particular sex, particularly male?
These are my deductions and conjectures in an attempt to answer those questions. I believe in a higher power. As Christians would put it “The Alpha, The Omega”, “The Beginning and The End.” How “he” came to be is something I believe will never understand. What is his physical characteristics? I do not limit his form by physical constraints in fear that I will do him injustice. The Alpha is everything…and nothing, and therefore, I don’t think he can be represented correctly. If the universe is so vast, why would he select a single entity existing in this vast realm as his physical form, when there is probably an uncountable set of forms he can choose from. It is known to Christians that Jesus is the son of God, and is also the representation of God on Earth. I will not delve into that subject any further and how I feel about it. I’ll just simply state that when I think about the Alpha and Jesus, I do not think of a Caucasian man. I can not picture or envision neither of them because what they represent should not be limited to characteristics of “mankind”.
Now, why are celestial beings usually represented as males? Hmm, I’m not theologian or a history professor, but i’m pretty sure men really know how to exercise their power and influence society’s thoughts. I think for a pretty long time now too. I wonder if it has anything to do with “its a man’s world”? To some degree, it is =/ .
This is just how I view things. Even re-reading this, I see a couple holes in my point of view, nevertheless that is my belief. After all religion is a constructed set of beliefs that cannot be proven true. That is why I believe everyone has their own religion because even followers of the same religion do not agree on every single topic in their own religion.
So What is God? Anything You Want Her To Be.
