I guess God has a mother nature after all, but too hard for me to grasp the idea of a co-joint female deity (the Yin-Yan in Dharmic or Eastern religions) common in many other religions besides Christianity and Judaism. The myth of a mortal(?) god to have a wife and mother is an extraordinary belief system in a few ancient West Semite religions before the rise of our modern-day Judeo-Christian faith. From what I read on this controversial not "blasphemous" issue, The Latter-day Saints church believed in the idea of God (his name "Elohim") was a married man had two sons: Jesus and Lucifer throug...

mormans believe god has a wife. They believe he had 10 wives. Ha, and that he grew up in Salt Lake City. Maybe thats why "God" doesnt care about any of us anymore. His wife is always nagging him, "Why must you always play with your little humans? Come play with me for a change." Damn women. Wife !!? I tought God was gay...and fabulous ! just kidding... just a joke... a joke... joke... Thats hilarious. He also dresses like Big Gay Al.

God is the essence of all that is. why in the world would God be only a masculine figure. God is beyond masculine and feminine. God is a wife and a husband. Silly people.

Silly people. yes just like a real married couple is. i am not talking about only those who are married through a ceremony either. i am talking about those couples who are truly together out of real love.

GOD is feminine and masculine, GOD always was and always will be, GOD is the yin and yang, positive and negative, GOD is all things, so therefore a wife would be totally unnecessary, much like mine.

You know, God means life. Life is the result of communication between a man and a woman. There is no doubt that every deity has a female companion, but in most cases they are in the background. Same thing goes with goddesses, they have husbands, but often they're in the background. Offtopic: I'm an archaeologist, too, and I really hate the way journalist report archaeological news. Every discovery is made right in front of the cameras. Once we found a crossbow bolt and there was a TV crew doing interviews with us and the camera guy was like "Hey, I didn't film this, put it back in the ground a... [More]

I'm polytheist meaning I believe in God and Goddess so yes I believe God has a female companion.
