God also does not have gender. God is an "it."
Coming to these conclusions has liberated me quite a bit. Life loses much of its complexity after eliminating the confusion and division and
hierarchy created by organized religion.
Stripped of organized religion, people are left with their own consciousness and the freedom to connect to God - which I think of as the universal
life force connecting all that is.
Organized religion is part of the problem we face on earth - not the solution. I think that many of the endless arguments people have where they're
just spinning their wheels and getting absolutely nowhere in solving problems - is caused by people defending their religion.
We don't need organized, man-made religion. We need to connect to each other after first connecting to that universal life force, which is God.

Wow, in a sense I agree with you that GOD does not have a religeon. I would submit that all religeons were inspired to serve him .....the Alpha and
Omega. When you are the "Alpha Being", you serve no one, and why would you? Where I disagree is that GOD is an "it". Just because he may not be
female or male in that he doesn't have specified genetailia.....doesn't mean that he is reduced to the next 'worst' common denominator that our
fleshy brains can comprehend. We live in a very limited existence, limited to flesh, bone dirt and rock. He rules a spiritual realm that we can't
(1 Corinthians 2:9) - But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath
prepared for them that love him.
This means that our brains can't understand past our existence. If this is so, then how much less could we comprehend the creator and ruler of such a
place. I promise you though he is NOT an "it" ....he is the all to end all and the beginning of all that is or was or is to come. An "it" is as
low as the scale of respect as one can get and conversely GOD is exalted above all creation and all things in it or associated with or without it.
Knowing this, I would silently ask for forgiveness from the GOD of all (Not talking about the god of the Freemasons or elites or world worshipping
witches I am talking about the GOD that created their ungrateful gods.) I would ask for forgiveness...might want to go through Jesus, as he is the
only way and mediator,
(John 14:6 King James Version)
Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
(1 Timothy 2:5)
"For there is one God and one Mediator
between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus."
.... as I was saying, I would ask for forgiveness for minimizing him as such and get on his side before it's too late. Not a threat, as you can do as
you will, it's your choice, but you need to know the truth, not just what gets you to sleep at night. Times are tough for everyone now and we all
want piece of mind and the freedom to do what our "natural" desires compel us to do, but it's just not that easy.
(Like 9: 23-26)
 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.  For whoever wants
to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.  What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or
forfeit his very self?  If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory
of the Father and of the holy angels."
so, it may help you sleep at night to think of GOD as an "it" so there's seemingly no spiritual recourse in this life, and it may work for awhile
but make no mistake about it, it's like going to 'check into cash' it gives you temporary relief, but when the inevitable bill comes later.....you
will pay interest. The bible refers to GOD as a "HE" many times so that we could relate. Why men? Because men were the head of the family in those
days.....remember those days? Anyway, if you ask for forgiveness from Jesus, he will give it to you freely. I would though, as this post will reach
many and possibly corrput them as well. I wouldn't want to be the recipient of that wrath from GOD.
(Luke 17:1-2 -KJV)
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
