Does anyone think outside the box?Question:does anyone feel that god/Allah/Jehovah or etc have a wife?

Report as

It's possible you have this back to front. If God created -- aka gave birth to -- the Universe then she's probably female. Your question may be better asked, "Does God have a husband?

But assuming for a moment that you were correct we come to this conversation between God and St. Peter.

Pete: You look terrible, Boss. Why don't you take a holiday.
Himself: Where would I go?
Pete: What about Earth. It's pretty cool at this time of year.
Himself: No way, good buddy. Last time I visited Earth I had an affair with a little Jewish girl. That was 2000 years ago -- and they're STILL talking about it.

Outside the box, Sailor? Maybe just a tad.

Reading your answers is better than watching The Simpsons. You are SO outside the box! Can you even find the box?

I think it comes from years of solving cryptic crosswords. It does wonders for the way you interpret things.

Never heard of an eagle riding on a fly's back, Yosey. But polygonic cubes? Surely that;s a contradiction in terms.

And Happy, we bought a box of chocolates for Christmas and we're making them last by eating only one a day. Now THAT's restraint.

I've been thinking of making a point of referring to God as She, henceforth. How do you think that would go over ? Or am I just asking for it? Tee, hee, hee!

@ Dozy: That was my first interpretation too. I actually had to take a minute. O.o

"On the fly" was a great image while it lasted.

@dozy nice since of humor.?

Kwojcik, I'm sure our resident feminists would love it. As Happy says, Go for it.
BTW I once emailed Father Andrew Creeley of Chicago and asked why, in his Bishop Blackie stories, he sometimes refers to God as He and sometimes as She. He wrote back and said he thought it was only fair.

Cherokee: thanks.

No that's not true. Were was woman when he created Adam? God formed him out of the dirt. You think out of your own pea brain mind. When God is far far more Superior than you. He can do anything. And I mean anything. He spoken things into existence

I think outside the Box but have learned to keep my thoughts to my self. Too many Nay sayers and those shock treatments really hurt. Just the other day I went out to the car and opened the door and the car started.

God/Allah is a powerful heavenly spirit being. Marriage is a human institution created by God. Why would a genderless heavenly spirit even NEED a spouse? And since there is no gender a spouse would be neither husband or wife. Nor do spirit beings need sexual pleasure like humans. So just say God did have a 'spouse' so to speak. What would be the point? Theyd just be two genderless spirits hangin out together.
What you called 'thinking outside the box' is really just being trapped inside the box of human limited thought. If you were truely thinking OUTside the box youd have a clearer picture of the fact God is not constrained by human thoughts and needs and desires like 'marriage' and 'spouses' and 'sex' and that sort of thing. Rather than thinking outside the box, you strive to force God/Allah into the box with you. God/Allah is SO much more, SO far beyond and OUTside, the things humans want and need that your question shows how little you clearly even TRY to understand or think outside the box.

Originally he did.

Jehovah was not always the "one god" to the Hebrews. The Hebrew people were an offshoot of the Canaanite tribes. In the Canaanite pantheon, Jehovah was the sky god, married to the earth goddess. The Hebrews broke off because they were the faction that thought Jehovah was the strongest. It wasn't until contact with the Greeks that the Hebrews became monotheists.

Honestly, I will never understand how so few believers know squat about the history of their own religion. Talk about blind belief.

I actually don't either, but it's what their fed as truth, then told anything else is against god and is a lie that satan has placed to stumble people.

I would not commit blasphemy towards God by even reading what man says. I trust my Bible. If its not there: I don't read it.

The YHWH, or Yahweh, or Jehovah was originally part of the Canaanite gods. He was one of the sons of El (the supreme god of the Canaanites) brother to Baal, and his consort was Asheria. Some time after the Babylonian exile and the time of the Persians they became monotheistic. El disappeared from the Hebrew worship and a family feud started against Baal and Asheria. So yes at one point he did have a wife.

The problem is the church has force fed their history for so long that the true history was lost or covered up. Thanks to true archeologists and anthropologists we are now discovering many things that would have never been known.

I just wish these diehards would get their heads out of that hole it's stuck in and realize that religion is not the only way and be more acceptable to other ways.

Show you what part? The family feud? I can do that. But as far as YHWH being a Canaanite god, I can only show you the writings that were found in the Ugarit that speak of YHWH, and his relationship to the pantheon. YHWH is referred to in the bible by many names that were gods in the Ugarit.

Deu 32:8 When the most High (El Eloi) divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam
(should be sons of God (El)), he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel (70 sons of isreal).

Deu 32:9 For the LORD'S (Yahweh) portion [is] his people; Jacob [is] the lot of his inheritance.

This scripture if translated correctly reads that El (the almighty god in Canaanite pantheon) gave Yahweh (one of the 70 sons of El) the people of Jacob (Isreal)
Which is the way it is shown in two Hebrew manuscripts one from Qumran, and by one manuscript of Aquila.

Since the bible has been repeatedly shown historically inaccurate, only trusting the bible is foolish.

Report as
It's especially bad when I am limited to only one version of the bible, since most of the bibles are only translated on opinion, because there is no way to know what the original writer was meaning. I get a kick out of people when they state "it has been proven to be the most accurate history book". Obviously they have not looked up the historicity of the book. they have really only taken the words spewed (there's that word again LOL) from the pulpit.
Report as
The KJV is one of the worst, too. It's historical fact that many verses were changed to suit the politics of the time.

Like the verse saying "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live", which never said "witch" until the KJV but was inserted as an excuse to kill pagans and anyone else the church wanted to snatch the land of. If a person was convicted of "witchcraft" all his estates and fortune went to the church.
