Do you have both male an female traits?

Updated: Oct 8

God has both male and female traits; so does the apostle Paul; so do I.

God self describes in both female and male terms, because God has no gender. Both male and female are made in God's image.

"God created humanity in God’s own image, in the divine image God created them, male and female God created them. -Genesis 1:27 CEB

Angels may be without gender because they do not marry and are not given in marriage (Matt 22:30)

Jesus also self-describes with both male and female traits.

Paul self describes in both female and male terms because both male and female are made in God's image.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28

Do you see both male and female character traits in yourself? Are there truly any character traits that are not held by all genders?

I don't like to ask directions; I like to read maps and puzzle out solutions. This does not make me male. I am cisgender female.

People are given talents, born with strengths, regardless of gender!

All people are saved by the grace of God, not by the intercession of a priest or saint, not by a parent or spouse. Women and men may approach God in the same way.
