God is a woman



According to this priest




Quote:

A Catholic priest from Massachusetts was officially dead for more than 48 minutes before medics were able to miraculously re-start his heart. During that time, Father John Micheal O’neal claims he went to heaven and met God, which he describes as a warm and comforting motherly figure.

Quote:
The Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley, made a public statement this morning stating that Father O’neal suffered hallucinations linked to a near-death experience and that God clearly isn’t a female.

Archbishop O'Malley's statement matches the Biblical approach. Dating back to the Old Testament: if a person claims to have revealed truth from the true God, Yahweh, what he says is to be compared to what Yahweh has already revealed. If it does not match, the person is a false prophet.

The First Testament (as one of my profs likes to call it) certainly speaks of God as loving and nurturing, which we tend to associate with motherhood in many societies. But He is Father, and will forever be Son by His humanity.
