Could God be a female?

So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Genesis 2:21-22

The difference between a male and a female in earthly terms is physiological and hormonal. But remember, God made man, a perfect creature, “in His image” then created woman from a part he removed from man, making them two incomplete halves that come together to form a whole.

That means the formula is this. . .

MAN + WOMAN = THE COMPLETE IMAGE OF GOD.

God reflects in people aspects of His own character and personality. Both man and woman have similar and different characteristics, but all of them are from God. So God is reflected in both man and woman. Like God, man is a fighter, a protector, a leader. Like God, woman is a comforter, a nurturer, a life-giver.

Since God is spirit, he has no physiological or hormonal characteristics. So in our human biological terms he is neither male or female.

In the Bible, God is always described in masculine terms since masculine is a more appropriate description of a king, ruler and Father. In addition, those who heard His voice described it in manly terms. Jesus also came in the form of a man.

In the Bible, God is described as a “male” but He exhibits characteristics (spiritual not physical) of both male and female.
