    I've pointed out in the past that you are in fact religious in spite of your denial. However, I'll word the question more to your liking so I can be schooled on why God is a male.

    I keep asking you God-believers why God has a gender, but you never answer. Does God have a penis? Or does God not have a vagina?

    Thank you. Wherever you learned God has a gender, it was wrong; he does not. God is not a physical being, he has no physical body. He is a Spirit being; genderless and having no reproductive organ. God has no gender; the use of describing " Him" in male terms, is just metaphor. We do not know what God is, other than a Spirit. Why the bible uses " A male metaphor", is unclear to me. I think it has to do with God being the head, or Father of all things, and just to help us humans comprehend that, the male term is used.

    Interesting! You appear to be saying that God doesn't mind whatever label humans apply to him. Because, seriously, you'd think that of all the labels that could be applied to God the least appreciated would be, first, any variant of "Satan", and second "man". Both rebelled against God and betrayed him and his intended original plan for man.

    And here you are making a big deal about having the "religious" label applied to you.

    So, who's more of a "man", you or God? (be careful, that's a trick question)?

    If you think its a big deal, ask your big questions to someone else.

    Prove to me Santa is not real.
    Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.

    The spirit of Santa Claus is indeed very real as the spirit of God.

    God is real and I believe by faith. I also know that not everybody will believe and it's not our job to convince anybody. Our job is to be ready to answer questions when asked.

    1 Peter 3:15 You must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.

    Matthew 11:15 "He that has ears to hear, let them hear."
    Hopeless optimist and irritating ray of sunshine!

    I most certainly can agree that Mickiel is not religious. Men like Bonhoeffer wrote "Religion less Christianity". Dianna Butler-Bass wrote "Christianity After Religion". One does not have to be Christian and religious. People can be either one or the other or both.
