i was looking for some feedback on a train of thought i have regarding paganism/witchcraft; father, son, holy ghost, the holy ghost being more like a mother figure? is it "wrong" in thinking that? and is the son a blend of masculine/feminine qualities? also is it misogynist? (feminine qualities in paganism come off as neg imo) thinking that makes so much sense to me but like i have a pang of doubt (underlining latin-pentecostal christian guilt regarding witchcraft/paganism) sry this is scattered
Honestly the only one that has a gender is the Son. Jesus was a man. God and the holy spirit are genderless and I feel they can appear to a person in what ever way that person would easily accept. As for misogynist. That word wasnt really AROUND when the Bible was being written and in that time and place Men ruled over women in general. So the Bible can be fairly angry toward women but the word of God an his lessons are genderless.
Your relationship with God is your relationship and no one elses. Read the Bible and talk with God and he will show you the path. ( God to me is a father so i refer to him as Male. The holy spirit changes depending on what i need. Oddly enough now i feel it as male)
That’s a matter of theology.
See, the Son had gender on Earth. He is very much dead now, His Person once again with God.
Some Christians held that Jesus in Heaven was as Genderless as God and the Holy Spirit.
That is a good point. Once in heaven will any of us have an actual gender….hrm… This leads to the idea that we will all just be beautiful glow clouds.
So.. in generall i stick to Jesus being male because thats what he was on earth. We cant even agree on his skin color let alone his gender..so Again I guess its up to the person worshiping.
It also depends on the “tier” of Heaven you belong to. The closer you get to God, the sketchier things get, we know that. It becomes more and moer unfathomable to us humans.
In Qabbalistic terms: Mary is assigned to Yesod usually, Jesus to Tipareth and Malkuth, the Holy Spirit to Da’ath/the path between Kether and Tiphareth, and God/HaShem is obviously in Kether. There are other correspondences, like Jesus in Malkuth, HS in Tiphareth, no one to Da’ath, etc.
