Friday again! Thank the Goddess that they come so quickly. Sweet drops of mercy on my head.

Tonight I have meditation. I haven't gone since last Wednesday's class and I can feel myself slipping a little. It will be nice to go and refresh, recharge, or whatever it is I do.

Boyfriend is the best ever!! He found us an apartment in our current complex on the very same floor. In other words, he saved our lives, and we don't have to have another strenuous move. I am very happy.

Next Friday is our two-year anniversary and I have figured out THE most perfect present in the entire world. I'd tell you but he reads this blog. I'm so excited!! Going to pick it up tomorrow.

So I've got Shakespeare coming out the ass... read four plays in like two weeks. I've been getting 100's on the assignments, but my professor told me yesterday I have to rewrite my paper. I guess it wasn't what she was looking for; she told me to make her see the play in a new way. I got all flustered and upset and boomed at Boyfriend, "I'M SUPPOSED TO COME UP WITH NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT SHAKESPEARE??" (Yes, I went a little crazy.) Today is better, she emailed me with more specific feedback and I am less psychotic. Let's just see what grade I come back with, though.

God.

If God is Spirit without gender then saying "Goddess" is the same as saying "God."

God is the Trinity(Three Persons in one God). The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are the persons of the Holy Trinity. What we have learned from Jesus, who is male as He is Human, as well as Divine, that God wishes to be addressed as Father. He wishes to be addressed with a masculine word and I don't think we should or can change that.

"Undergirding Jesus’ teaching about God as Father is the idea that God has revealed Himself as to be such and that His revelation should be normative for us. God, in other words, calls the theological shots. If He wants to be understood primarily in masculine terms, then that is how we should speak of Him. To do otherwise, is tantamount to idolatry–fashioning God in our image, rather than receiving from Him His self-disclosure as the Father."

"God wants us to understand Him as the Transcendent Source of creation, a truth better expressed using the language of fatherhood than motherhood. Within the Triune Life of God, the First Person is Father because He is the Unoriginated Origin of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, He is also Father of the Son in history, through the Incarnation. And, by Divine Adoption and regeneration, He is Father of those who are united to Christ in the Holy Spirit–"sons in the Son." Finally, as a result of God’s universal salvific will, all human beings are potentially children of God, for all are called to share in the Divine Life of grace through Christ in the Holy Spirit."

The history books were written by men. The Bible was also written by men - not God.

We're speaking of Revelation. We learn about the Father directly from Jesus, God Himself.

And the Bible is inspired by God.
