I think its because of when people write/wrote about god it would sound weird with "it" and putting god every few words sounds strange as well so the "men" who wrote the bible in their ego bound male brains decided to use him/he.

lol... I have a higher power that is a woman..
and I have a higher power that is a man

My higher power consistes of both..
because my spirituality is all about balance..
You can not have one with out the other..

With success comes suffering
with happiness comes sadness
with acceptance comes rejection..

Soooooo
with her.. there is him..
that is just the way I see it spiritually..

God is always referred to as "HE"...
Why not "SHE"?

Is it that hard to open yourselves to even the possibility that God might be a Woman?

Does the idea bother you? Or does it just not matter whether "HE" or "SHE."

US president is always referred to as "HE"...
Why not "SHE"?

Is it that hard to open yourselves to even the possibility that a president might be a Woman?

Does the idea bother you? Or does it just not matter that neither a black nor a woman has ever become a US president?
