I estimate that 95%+ of modern bible teachers, and modern bible versions, TOO, are muddying the water
and confusion this whole issue, of gender meaning and distinction.
God IS inherently, innately,
intrinsically a straight male.
Jesus Christ was circumcised and he takes a bride, the Church.
He and his/the Father ARE straight males.
Jesus is the ultimate Jewish bridegroom - he has taken
a bride, paid her purchase price, and now he has gone to his father's house in heaven to prepare a place for her.
Then he will come to get her and take her there for the wedding supper and the consumation.
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I
go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go
and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
All pictures are formed by contrast. Manhood is the image of God, womanhood is HETERO, the helpmeet.
Womanhood is what a straight guy wants -- he DOES NOT want an image of himself.
is special being God's image, womanhood is special being the hetero to God, the helpmeet.
In Genesis 2 below, God plainly stated purpose is to make the woman to be a helpmeet to Adam, NOT ANOTHER IMAGE.
She is hetero.
Warning modern bible versions are fudging this true doctrine, as
are most modern bible teachers.

1 Thus the
heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from
all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created
4 These are the
generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew:
for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth,
and there was not a man to till the ground.
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And the Lord
God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the
tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence
it was parted, and became into four heads.
The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium
and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second
river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east
of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the Lord God took the man,
and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the Lord God
commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt
not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the Lord God
said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see
what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl
of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up
the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man,
made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because
she was taken out of Man.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and
were not ashamed.
God, being a straight male has made a great project in his creation of this world, and in his
creation of Israel which is his wife, and in arranging a bride for Jesus Christ his son.
are genuine historical projects and realities, they are NOT mere stories.
In Jeremiah 3 God is talking to Israel:
acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord
thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord.
14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family,
and I will bring you to Zion:
And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
1 Thessalonians 4: speaks of the Rature, that is, Christ's return from heaven, to earth's atmosphere to take his bride, The Church, to
heaven for the wedding supper, and consummation:
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep,
that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God
bring with him.
this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent
them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of
God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet
the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
