God is male because if female the correct word would be Goddess.

The Gnostic gospels found at Nag Hammadi often talk of Female deities and depending on the sect it could be a wife a mother an androgyne entity female and male.  A writer of the  Sethian Gnostic group who had a different version of the Old Testament wrote:

Quote

Iaalddaboath (another name for Yaweh)becoming arrogant in spirit boasted himself over those who were below him and explained:  I am father and god and above me there is none one.  His mother hearing him speak thus cried against him:  Do not lie Ialdabaoth for the father of all, the primal Anthropos is above you and so is Anbropos the son of Anthropos ote]

Inn the Secret Book (part of the Nag Hammadi Library) JC is supposed to say:


Quote

(She is)the image of the invisible, virginal, perfect spirit.  She became the mother of everything for she existed before them all the mother-father (matropater)

If I was a God I'd call myself what ever I felt like and you'd be in no position to argue, really. If He/She/It exists...it's what ever it wants to be. Like Gozer.

God has a Son but no Wife?

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

He had an extra-marrital relationship with Mary.

Why does the female mate always mean wife?
Who in gods' name would have married them?

I go along with there being female deities in the Nag Hammadi Library. Yay, Paracelse. The original Trinity was Father, Mother, Child.

Like the old joke says...

If god was a woman, men would have the children.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

There's a book called: "Did God Have a Wife? Archaeology and Folk Religion in Ancient Israel" by William G. Dever, who is a Grand Rapids.

The author of the book unearthed inscriptions in a cave in Khirbet al-Qom which also mentions Yahweh and his Asherah. Who was Asherah? In the Canaanite pantheon, she was the wife of El.

Have a read, it's interesting :)

I think this is a confusion of mixing other pagan gods in with God.
