Sorry for the delay. My DSL modem failed strangely, so that it looked like it was still working, and caused problems on the line so that the telco changed my password, and it snowballed from there
. But Computer Doc finally got everything figured out and I'm back on the air.
My point, Kate, was:
If Jesus is fully God (as well as being fully human with no division between his Divinity and his Humanity, as is required by the Trinity Doctrine), and if Jesus is male, then God (Father Son, and Holy Spirit) has male gender
even though the Father and Spirit have spiritual natures.
That doesn't detract from God's Omnipotence or Sovereignty, or from his dignity. That's just the way he is, and failing to recognize his maleness IMHO detracts from what God himself has chosen to be.
In faith, Dave
Wise men still seek him.
