Simple question. Was your god a boy or girl or neither, which I guess would be an "it"?

Is this important to you?  Jesus was a man and since Jesus is God in the flesh, if you know anything about the Christian faith you would have known that so are we baiting on a forum meant for Christians?

I want to really know if Christians think their god is a boy. And btw, if you knew anything about the history of Christianity you'd know that it wasn't always the case that Christians thought of Jesus was God incarnate. That idea came much much later after certain sects won out and as a result the notion stuck. But it was just one idea amongst many.

But if you say you think your god is a boy, then the next natural question is, in what way? Obviously not anatomically. And I assume you're not naive enough to think male and female are the only possible genders in the entire universe of god's children. Maybe She created some civilizations on planets around other stars that have more than male/female genders.

Christians who did not think that Jesus was God incarnate were never Christians.  I look at the writings of the very first Christians of the New Testament and everyone of them believed it.  No exceptions.  John 1:1-5, 14, John 10:30-33, John 9:35-38, Colossians 2:9, John 8:58, John 20:28 are some of scripture that totally contradict your claim.  If you know ANYTHING about Christiananity and have read the Bible the disciples called him the Messiah and Lord.  They are the beginning of Chritiananity as their letters have shown.  Jesus was crucified by the Jews because he proclaimed to be the Lord.  So in conclusion, God, in the flesh was a male as scripture testifies.

To be honest, this thread needs to be on the Religion forum, not the Christian forum.  This forum was started for Christians to discuss scripture and theology.

I was asking Christians about their beliefs. Seawolf, you honestly don't know your Christian history. The NT was a product of centuries of back and forth and revisions, mistakes, etc. And far prior to it there were groups of Christians who "battled" over where Jesus was god incarnate, just a really special guy but not god, and so on. The NT is really just a poor copy/paste job stitched together over hundreds of years. And there were numerous different versions that disagreed greatly in how Jesus was though of. Then King James came along and for political reasons got together representatives of the various groups and they hammered out a compromise interpretation. (And actually long before that Constantine, again for political reasons, by decree declared certain groups heretics. The intepretation we have now, that you claim was there from the very start, just as a matter of fact was not.) Anyway, I sense you're too far gone to have a good conversation with. I'll leave this thread since intolerance for non-Christians seems to be part of it.

Patently false.  Your remarks are mostly hearsay lacking irrefutable evidence.  I have heard the same claim regarding the old testament from folks like you who talk about second hand disagreements with no evidence. Yet Israel has the oldest manuscript of the book of Isaiah, over 1000 years old, and it matches our scripture today. There is history that makes it difficult to say the Bible is fantasy.  I have researched historian writings of the Christian events no further out then 100 years that are conclusive.

Your thread is a duplicate of the one in the religion forum, not appropiate for this forum as it is for the religion forum.
