Christians are taught from the Bible that God was always God. They do not pray to a ressurected man who earned an exaltation. To them, the concept of exaltation is not Biblical. These two points might help us to realize the differences in theology.

In my opinion,the use of the term He is correct to some degree;but,I do believe that God the Father has both a Feminine and Masculine Identity.Remember,BOTH male and female are created in the Image and Likeness of God!

The word father is translated in language as life giver.

Almighty God Jehovah is the father of all life, he designed and created life. Everything in existence has a name to identify it, and God has a name he gave himself YHWH, translated in English as Jehovah. Psalms 83:18 Isaiah 42:8

No one knows the correct pronounceation of that Hebrew tetragramiton, but since man has been told God's name starting with Moses, it has identified God as, He who causes to become.

It is religion that has taken God's name out of the Bible, more than 7000 times. Replacing it with the word LORD. Teaching their Trinity doctrine. Matthew 15:9

Jehovah God's first creation was his only son, the first angel created in heaven, it was this son, that brought into existence with God's holy spirit
all other life. Colossians 1:15

Therefore God could say, let us make man in our image. That means with the ability to produce qualities that Almighty God had and gave his only begotten son.

Man made God, then God made man.
If fulfills a need in some sense, but it is an illusion. The wars between Christian nations show that it is a shallow myth. Christians embarking on the crusades. Muslims killing Muslims, all show the untruth of God theories and His followers. A myth that in practice is often the contrary of it's ideals.

Every war on this earth has been faught by the military of the governments and religious clergy blessing their efforts of conquest, putting their god on their side.

This is the reason the book of Revelation says that religion is responsible for all bloodshed spilt on this earth. Revelation 18:24

The Bible has always proved true, if you live by the sword you will die by the sword. The followers of Jesus or true Christians are to be at peace with everyone. Romans 12:17,18

The battles the Israelites faught were backed by Jehovah God, it was his people and his will that was being accomplished by their victories.

The nation of Israel was not acceptable to Jehovah God, after Jesus was put to death by the Jews.
It was the true Christians that would now make up spiritual Israel, being spirit begotten sons of God. Galatians 3:28,29
Romans 8:14

Christians today are not Spiritual Israel, only meek and humble Christians are subjects of the spiritual Israel or the bride of Christ. They are co-rulers with Jesus as King, in the spiritual administration the heavenly kingdom government. Revelation 21:2,3

Whitehead defined God as the First Cause, i.e. the cause of singularity and then....the Big Bang that created the universe, matter, life, etc. Works for me That God has a separate and distinct reality from all of the ridiculous anthropomorphic gods and idols that man has created in his own image over the last 18,000 years.

Yes, he is God the father and he is he. He is there to help you in time of need whenever you call on him. He has asked us to knock and it shall be given on to us. Readers can read more about God in this article-http://www.worldtransf ormation.com/is-there-a-god/

When Jesus Christ was on Earth, he said to seek and find and knock and it will open to you, Jesus spoke the word of God, but was and still is not Almighty God Jehovah. Jesus is the one and only begotten son of God, not God.

Colossians 1:15
John 4:24

Almighty God Jehovah is not a Trinity god, that is a Roman Catholic doctrine accepted by Christendom as fact.
It is not true.

I agree with you on certain points, but now let me ask you a simple question, was Moses and Abraham Jews?

Abraham and Moses spoke the Hebrew language, they were lovers of Almighty God Jehovah, the word Jew was a derogatory name for anyone who loved and worshipped Almighty God Jehovah. From the time the twelve tribes of natural Israel, were formed from the children of Jacob, natural Hebrew speaking people were called Jews.

The Jews refused to speak Almighty God Jehovah's personal name from superstition, it was the people of the world that gave them the name Jew, because of that fact. Even today the natural Jew refuses to accept the truth about the word Jew, they make up all kinds of stories from traditional teachings.

If you believe in a spirit realm, that is the belief in heaven, God and angels and the belief in a wicked spirits as well, you must admit a godly spirit is called an angel, and a wicked spirit is called a demon.

The very first angel that Almighty God Jehovah created was his first spirit son, in fact that is the only angelic son he did create. Therefore that angelic son is called the only begotten son of God.

The very first angelic son of the Sovereign Creator and designer of all life, would be an archangel, especially if that son of God was used to create everything else in existence with the power of God's holy spirit or force to accomplish Jehovah God's will. Collosians 1:15

The Bible names that prince of heaven as Michael, which means, who is like God. Jesus is called the word of God and the master worker at Proverbs 8.

The truth of God and life is available to anyone who wants to know the one true God in heaven and His now reigning King and son Jesus Christ as King of God's new world, soon to be here.

Do you know that Jesus Christ was not a Jew and the word "Jew" came into existence in 1775, in a play called "Rival"/?

The word Jew was introduced into the Bible after 1775, in revised editions. It was put into Kings, in Titus 1:14 and some of the Gospels. BTW, Jesus Christ was Arabian Israelite and "not" a Jew.

What Jesus Christ condemned was the oral beliefs in "Pharisaism" which later became the written Talmud for "convert" occultist pagan and heathens. The modern Jews are a Cult of Talmudic "convert" Demons, and it was the Cult and not the Jews, that dated back to Ancient times.

All you need to experience spiritual peace is to find, or create a theory that suits and satisfies you. If that is a male, female or genderless God then so be it. If you don't have religion (a God) in your life that is also OK.

You will die in time, as we all will and when we do nothing any of us believed on Earth will matter, since belief,'faith' as it is commonly known, has no basis other than guesswork.

Find a belief that makes you a nice happy person and live a fulfilling life.

Unless you believe life or living on this Earth is a gift from God, you will never learn the truth about God or life, because you must accept the Creators direction from the Bible to have a peaceful and happy life.

Isaiah 48:17,18

Allow one of Jehovah's witnesses to show you from your Bible, the truth you need to adjust your thinking and your life to do God's will, as Jesus and the apostles taught in the first century.
John 17:3

Only Jehovah's witnesses have the accurate knowledge and understanding you need for your surviving the end of this unrighteous world, and to live in God's new world of righteousness and paradise on this Earth.
Revelation 21:3,4
