God’s Gender

God has identified himself using the masculine gender more in the scripture. Recently there have been issues on the gender of God, with the church of England seeking to consider this matter, changing the Bible, and using a gender-neutral pronoun for God. “God is not a he”. That’s what gender theorists claim. God’s pronouns are they/them, we’re told. After all, God has no gender as a spiritual being. He’s three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That’s a plurality of persons. Furthermore, “Elohim”—the ancient Hebrew word for God- is plural. Doesn’t all this evidence signal a reason to change how we refer to God? Should we abandon he/him and adopt they/them?
