United Methodist Church Rejects Constitutional Amendment Saying God Isn't 'Male or Female'

The United Methodist Church has narrowly voted down an amendment to the denomination's Book of Discipline that would have said God is not "male or female."

Delegates from the UMC's annual conferences voted on whether to ratify five proposed amendments that were approved by the 2016 General Conference.

Proposed Constitutional Amendment I was centered on gender equality and included the statement that "it is contrary to Scripture and to logic to say that God is male or female, as maleness and femaleness are characteristics of human bodies and cultures, not characteristics of the divine."

According to official results that were released Monday, Amendment I received 66.5 percent of the vote, less than a half percentage point shy of the minimum 66.7 percent majority. The necessary supermajority was defeated by about 100 votes. ...

I didn't express myself well. Of course I address God as my Father and so on. Jesus would not have got very far in his mission had he taken a female form! I am complementarian and I certainly don't need "inclusive" language in my Bible. I just ponder on the "neither male nor female" verse, that's all.

Dear Natalie, Jesus was saying that we will be like angels only in the sense that we will not get married or engage in sexual activity. Nowhere in the Bible does it say or imply that we will not have our original gender in our glorified bodies. God created man male and female with bodies of flesh and blood. Angels are ministering spirits. They do not have fleshly bodies. They can evidently take on the appearance of men when that is necessary to fulfill their God-given tasks.

I wonder if these poor Liberals realise that God's own Son came to earth and called God His Father?

Probably not.

If you are a Liberal then you will be working towards the removal of gender from mankind just now anyway.

It's such a pity that these religious reprobates cannot read the Bible.

Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him."

John 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him"

Excellent comment! God will not listen to anyone who does not refer to Him in a masculine way. Feminists use the "spirit" concept in a way to further their causes.

Thanks for your comment and thought!

C'mon, the Bible says we will be "as the angels". Whatever our glorified bodies are, we will not be male and female in same sense that we are here on earth.

Matthew 6:8-14
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, ---ESV
