God should be a SHE: Church of England’s female priests call to end ‘male imagery’

Libby Lane was the CofE's first woman bishop - but now worshippers could call God 'She'

An pressure group called Watch, or Women and the Church, wants to stop what it believes is sexist language and male imagery in services.

Watch member Emma Percy issued a statement saying using He for the Divine meant women say themselves as ‘less holy’.

“When we used only male language we reinforce the idea that God is like a man and, in doing so, suggest that men are therefore more like God than women.

If we take seriously the idea that men and women are made in the image of God both male and female language should be used.”

This has arisen now in part because of the change in gender culture

Hilary Cotton

Watch chairman Hilary Cotton told the Sunday Times that the issue had been discussed at a high level within the Anglican church, and the church was working towards a more feminised liturgy.

She said: “We are at a very preliminary stage in terms of shifting the language of of worship.

“The question of how might we rewrite the worship services of the church of England in a way that broadens our understanding and perception of God is a really difficult question per which we will wrestle for a number of years to come.

“This has arisen now in part because of the change in gender culture but actually it has emerged at all sorts of points in Christian history.”

Ms Cotton said the concept of God being male stemmed from the Church’s early history in Rome.

The Church of England took on its first ever woman bishop when Libby Lane was consecrated Bishop of Stockport earlier this year.

A spokesman for the Church said: “Any change in the formal liturgy of the Church of England would require consent, revision and final approval of the General Synod.

“Even prior to that point, there would need to be substantial consultation with the Liturgical Commission.”

The Truth Behind Hip Hop Part 7: Mother Of All Gods The word of God says that we are not to provoke our children unto wrath, yet a generation of fatherless children has emerged, provoked by their situation to rebel against God and society. How is the devil promoting this fatherless agenda thru Hip Hop, and worse, in what ways is the church perpetuating this cycle? Also, what is behind the gender-bending obsession with today’s youth? In The Truth Behind Hip Hop Part 7, “Mother of All Gods,”

Elder G. Craige Lewis goes in depth, into unchartered territory, to expose the harlot of Babylon’s assignment against this generation. If you thought you’ve seen it all, you haven’t.

This is unlike any DVD in “The Truth Behind Hip Hop” series. The information in this DVD will not only open your eyes to the secret agenda of the enemy through entertainment, government, religion and fatherlessness, but will also equip you in your stand for the kingdom of God.—Make A Donation

    Dear Brother this rebellion goes so deep it would appear impossible to defeat. But it is not, ‘if MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, PRAY AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILLHEAR FROM HEAVEN, FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND’. Unfortunately, most do not pray, which until recently included me! But a stroke awoke in me a greater sensitivity to the true need of man. I pray with my focus upon God’s interests and not my own. Im not boasting because this is not as easy as it sounds. I am now being disciplined to allow the Lord to direct my prayers and praying. To God be all the glory! Satan is being defeated no matter what it looks like, in Jesus Name AMEN!

    This thought came into my mind recently. I have the utmost respect for women. The reason I know anything at all about Christ is because of a woman (mother), I was taught how to read and write by a woman (sister). I don’t for a minute doubt their intelligence, most of my teachers were women. But if God wanted any woman to be in the lead of the church, why didn’t Jesus choose at least one as an apostle? And this is certainly is not denying self.
    And could/should be considered image worship, just like Mr. Jenner worshiping the image of himself as one.

    Nothing is new under the sun for real. This is exactly what all the pagan religions do. This is no different. But just like those nations who worshipped the female goddess so will this godless system be. God will utterly show HIMself strong destroying those who would try to change HIS original creation role, which includes how HE has described HIMself to mankind. I’m a woman so I personally know the temptation of the enemy to get me to think that being a woman in God’s eyes means that I’m subhuman but God made them both male and female. We have different roles and levels of authority but also of biology and what God created a man to do is after HIS nature of Kingship. I don’t think it’s wise or productive to argue with the Creator of the universe for how HE chose to create. HE holds the right to define HIS standards. I know that as a woman that God, my Father considers me precious in HIS sight and considers me a daughter of Sarah. And my God will never be a she.

    and yet some more foolishness, Jesus said “whosoever will let them come” the problem is that all will not come or they want to come on their own terms. There are only a few who will find the way to life and enter in. Jesus keep me near the cross(smh)

    When man begins to accept the WORD OF GOD everything else will fall in place. So, what if some don’t believe, does that make the word of GOD without effect ? GOD forbid ! Let every man be a liar but let GOD be true ! Start with Acts 2:38 and get on tract .

    God created man in his own image and the woman he created through man. God son Jesus came to earth as a man not a woman name Jessica .God let’s us know that woman is the weaker vessel and there is no weakness in GOD.

    I don’t care what you say, these people talk to the devil!
    “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)
