One has to realize that there is no word for "it" in the original language.
Everything, linguistically, is either "he" or "she".
By the same token, a linguistic gender does not necessarily denote a physical gender.
God has no gender no form. God is formless. Nothing in the entire universe and beyond is comparable to the creator
Perhaps this is why "We" is often used as it does not denote gender. (?)
We denote "God" as a "He" when speaking about the infinite one (that in itself is a contradiction).
God is neither, because that would be limiting God, humanizing God if you will.
The first lines of the Tao Te Ching "The Tao that can be told is not the essential Tao..."
I think if we replace "Tao" with "God" that pretty much sums it up.
"We" has a more profound meaning than that. :)
Just a thought...
