A good post by Mark Berry, highlights more evidence that we should re-evaluate the way we consistently consider God as a male entity.
After bringing out some scriptural references which show a maternal aspect of God’s character, he goes on to add:
“I think in holding on to a male primacy within the nature of God we do two things; 1) we elevate Male as the truest reflection of God (therefore reducing Female to a more distant echo of God’s nature) and 2) we limit our ability to engage with God’s nature, we caricature God as Father rather than exploring the fulness of *both* the Fatherhood and Motherhood of God… in losing sight of the divine Feminine do we not only do damage to the place of women within church and culture, but also deny God!? ”
