Hello - I teach a 10th grade Religious Education and something came up about God and Gender that I wasn’t sure how to answer. Many of these questions they are getting from their high school History class.
The question was about God being male or female - how they had been told that it’s wrong to think of God as strictly male - and that the biblical language was biased due to the patriarchal system and the gender biased toward men.
How do I effectively answer that question and give them the full picture of God? How do I adequately address the masculine and even feminine aspect of God?
Thank you for your help.
