Church of Sweden: God is not human, so it shouldn’t be a male!

The Church of Sweden want to make some important changes in the way people refer to God.

251 church members decided that “God” shouldn’t be a masculine noun, but gender-neutral!

The Church of Sweden encourage its clergy to use the gender-neutral term “God” instead of “He” or “the Lord”.

At the moment, Antje Jackelén, a female archbishop, runs the old State Church. ”Theologically, God is beyond our determination of gender. God is not human, so we can not call Him or the Lord”, told Jackelén to the Swedish press.
