Does the soul have a gender?

  1. Does the soul have a gender? I think it does since we are made in the image of god and we are all unique individuals with unique souls. Thus a man would have a male gender soul since his soul is him, his essence.–agree?

Hi,

Our gender comes from our bodies–not our souls. Gender is a body thing. Angels do not have genders.
