Are There Appropriate and Inappropriate Pronouns and Gendered Names for God?

May 20, 2015

From Sarah Moon’s Patheos blog comes a response to fellow blogger Roger Olson’s assertions that there are proper pronouns and gendered names that people should use when referring to God.

Sarah begs to differ.

“When we limit women’s imagery for God to one little, sadly neglected box, we also limit Christian women (not to mention completely ignoring those whose genders are neither male nor female).

“My God has many names, many genders, many pronouns.”
