Church Of England Is Satanic Wants To Call God A Woman by chiedu7: 3:16pm On Jun 01, 2015
Now they want to refer to God as female.

I wonder why many pentecostal pastors can't see that the Anglican Church of England is full of satanist.

Are they blinded by satan?

The African Anglican Churches already know that the Church of England has been over ran by Freemasons.

I am really suspicious of every Pentecostal Pastor that is close to the Church of England.


[size=14pt]Calls to refer to God as a woman as female bishops take up posts
Support is growing within the Church of England to rewrite its official liturgy to refer to God as female following the selection of the first women bishops [/size]


Growing numbers of priests already insert words such as “she” and “mother” informally into traditional service texts as part of a move to make the language of worship more inclusive, it has been claimed.

But calls for a full overhaul of liturgy to recognise the equal status of women have already been discussed informally at a senior level.

It comes after the “Transformations Steering Group”, a body which meets in Lambeth Palace to examine the impact of women in ministry on the Church of England, issued a public call to the bishops to encourage more “expansive language and imagery about God”.

Hilary Cotton, chair of Women And The Church (Watch), the group which led the campaign for female bishops, said the shift away from the traditional patriarchal language of the Book of Common Prayer in already at an “advanced” stage in some quarters.

“The reality is that in many churches up and down the country something more than the almost default male language about God is already being used,” she said.

“Quietly clergy are just talking about God as ‘she’ every now and then.

“The response you often get at one end is ‘why does it matter because God is beyond all this?’

“At the other end the reaction is ‘you mustn’t because Jesus calls God father.”

Mrs Cotton said that while congregations were already experimenting with new terminology, it was time for the issue to be considered by the Liturgical Commission, the body which drafts official service books, as well as those drawing behind a planned new catechism.

“Until we shift considerably towards a more gender-full expression in our worship about God then we are failing God and we are missing something,” she said.

“We are [also] going to miss some of the opportunities that otherwise particularly women might feel themselves called to.”

Her comments came following a discussion at the Westminster Faith Debates on whether the consecration of women as bishops would “change” the Church of England.

The Church of England’s worship already includes some references to God as female, many of them centuries old.

• First woman bishop Libby Lane: a century of campaigning


Canticle 82, the song of Anselm, the 11th and 12th Century Archbishop of Canterbury, likens Jesus to a mother, while number 86, attributed to Julian of Norwich, speaks of God as “our mother in all things”.

“That gives an indication that the Church of England hasn’t set its face against this in any way and there is recognition from the Church of England that men and women are made in the image of God and therefore it is entirely appropriate to express our worship toward God as a female presence,” said Mrs Cotton.

“There is a thin thread of this throughout history but having women bishops makes it particularly obvious that … to continue to refer to God purely as male is just unhelpful to many people now.”

A spokesman for Lambeth Palace emphasised that the steering group is independent of the Archbishop of Canterbury and that any change in liturgy would have to be approved by the General Synod.

How pathetic.
The worship of a male God is called religion.
The worship of a female God is called Satanism or idolatory.

Also, The worship of a white God is called religion.
The worship of a black or non white God is called idol worship or Satanism.

Therefore, it appears that religion is nothing but Racism and male chauvinism rolled into one.

Op, why does this shocked you?. Christians already have women's Bible. All the places where 'he' are used for Jesus are changed to 'she'. This Bible was produced in America. Women claim they have been cheated for far too long was the reason for production of such Bible. And someone like ifeann said "Women's Bible is also 'inspired' by God. Majority of christians will end up being atheists. Thats for sure.

So God can be a male but not a female. . . Whats wrong if God turns out to be a woman, you can't worship a female?. . . Isn't this a form of discrimination against the female gender?

Gender supremacy has eaten deep into our society...So you can conceive and represent God as a male but to represent it as a female is a crime or should i say "Blasphemy"

This just shows its all a blatant fabrication perpetuated by male dominated system and always places the male gender above the other.

No wonder Islam treats women like property that you can acquire up to 4...

You just got it wrong. My post was basically in reference to christianity. There is no gender #god in Islam. My post only serves to taunt op and the likes.

Islam does not in anyway recognize God Almighty by gender. Thats why Muslims prefer using Allah, the proper name for Supreme Being and Creator of all.

But since many christians consider man-god as their spreme being, it denotes gender god. So leave Islam out of this. As for treatment of women you raised, You painted all muslims with one brush. Thats isnt nice

So Allah is neither Masculine nor feminine, But can be portrayed with masculinity, my question, why can't he be portrayed with feministic attributes.

E.g i have seen where "Subhanahu wa Ta'ala" (SWT) is translated as (Praise to Him in His Highness),.. Here is the link
Allah, As He Described Himself in the Holy Quran By Hassan Ali El-Najjar - http://www.aljazeerah.info/Islamic%20Editorials/2010/October/Allah,%20As%20He%20Described%20Himself%20in%20the%20Holy%20Quran%20By%20Hassan%20Ali%20El-Najjar.htm

also is translated as ( "May he be glorified and exalted",) here http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_in_Islam.

Am sure you and i know the masculine weight in the pronoun "He" ..So why don't any ever portray him in a little feministic way.. since Allah has no gender then it should also be okay if someone says She Just like many use "He"

Am not painting all muslims with one brush, actually the muslim holy book "Quran" asserted this up to 4wives Marriage... So unless you think the Quran is wrong in this, i think you should think it is very good because the quran said it is.

I actually am. You don't expect everyone to share your point of view that all of a sudden the church of England is satanic just because the have decided to refer to god as a woman. Afterall, women are responsible for pro creating and producing babies therefore it is safe to assume that god is a woman since god is responsible for creation..

I guess we'll now have to refer to nature as "father nature" instead. Personally, the whole idea is more appealing because now, men can now stop referring to women degoratively by calling them biatch, LovePeddler, slut etc because you'd also referring to god in those terms.

And what exactly makes you feel that your opinion matters anyway. The mafia behind the church can decide to do whatever suits them and all they have to do is convince your "daddy GO" to convince you that its right. The only contribution they want from you is your offering. As long as gullible people believe everything you're told, its business as usual

Most things Christians worry about are really not worth the headache - creation(made with hands or through evolution) , if Jesus was married , which church is practicing what , King James' sexual preference , Jesus' race etc . Forget those things , read your bible , pray , live a just and holy life , and leave the rest to God !

Will it be ok to call you a homosexual when you are clearly not one? cool

Luke 2:21

21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.

Jesus was male and the passage proves so(males are circumcised on the eight day)

A quick look at another verse

Luke 1:31

31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.

'son' clearly portrays Jesus as a male


...and another

John 10:30

"I and the Father are one.”

Father - male . This clearly shows that God is a "He" and they are one

But who says Christianity is so misogynistic as you guys claim? undecided

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

God is a being and not human . Masculinity does not necessarily mean you need a joystick , its more like an attribution . What are males known for?

-they protect
-they are brave
-they are strong willed
-physical and emotional strength etc

females?
-physical and emotional weakness
-cowardice ( not as seemed)
-weak-willed etc

So its more like a concept

because some females have such attributes eg Tomboys ,the 'Think like a man act as a lady' motivation , female soldiers and CEOs . So do females have/need the joystick to exhibit 'masculinity'? undecided
