Mother and Father God
If any of you have read Sylvia Browne’s books, you know that she often refers to a Mother God and a Father God. Why does she say this when she is Christian? Aren’t Christians supposed to believe in one god? I can only come up with one explanation: God is made up of both masculine and feminine energies. I believe she refers to each energy by naming them Father God and Mother God, respectively.
Why do Christians always refer to God as “Him,” “He,” or “Lord?” When you look at this way, it is very easy to believe that God is male. We must remember that God created us in His image (Genesis 1:26-27), male and female. This leads me to then ask, how could He have created both males and females when God is a He? The answer: He is made up ofbothmale and female energies. The main reason we refer to God as “He” is that we first read this in the Bible. In the Bible, Hebrew has almost no gender neutral words, which means that it was easier to call God “Him.”
Now that it’s translated in English, why do we still call the Lord “Him?” My theory is that who wants to worship the all-powerful It? I don’t know many people who would be okay with always saying “I believe It created the world and you should believe in It too.” Would you want to worship a being that you refer to as “It?” I wouldn’t.
Referring to the energies as Mother God and Father God is okay. You could also call God “He” or “She.” However you refer to God is between you and God. I don’t think God minds what you call Him. It’s your choice. God bless you all!
