In today’s atmosphere of tension between genders – male vs. female – a common complaint among some females is that they do not believe that God is necessarily a man. There is no factual basis for such a suggestion, but there are some facts that suggest that there is a good reason for God to be depicted as male by the Bible.
First, one must look at the characteristics of God: Compassionate, Caring, Merciful, Seeker of Peace (among others).
Then, consider that the vast majority of violence, war, and mayhem are caused by men. Does it not make sense that the God of the Bible serve as a positive, moderating influence on those who do the most violence in the world?
Statistically, there is strong evidence to suggest that the lack of a male parent in the home results in significantly greater likelihood that the children in the household will live in poverty, quit school, and/or serve time in jail. The lack of a male leader that teaches those traits attributed to God and instills those traits in his offspring results in detriment to the children. Even in the case of female children, the lack of a father figure is nearly as detrimental as with male children.
