Words of Comfort: Feminists and the Bible.

Feminists bristle at the Bible’s statement that God made man in His image. This verse doesn’t mean that God is a man, or that He looks like man (see John 4:24). It means that when God made man and woman, He endowed them with a mind, emotions, and will. Humans are rational, moral beings with an inherent God-consciousness. However, in revealing Himself to mankind, God describes Himself in the male gender using terms such as Father, Son, Bridegroom, etc. Those who consider God to be female and call Him “Mother” are engaging in idolatry. To change who God has revealed Himself to be is to create a god in their own image.
