Q: "Can God be a woman?"

our A: It is probably not accurate to view God as a woman, though the Bible does show God's feminine side, so to speak. Jesus once said...

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing." (Matthew 23:37)

Also, God's wisdom in the Proverbs is personified as a female (e.g., Proverbs 1:20, 8:11, 9:1), yet we are told in the New Testament that Jesus is the Wisdom of God (1Corinthians 1:24).

But, for the most part, God has chosen to reveal Himself in the Bible as having a male personage. The Bible is inspired of God (2Timothy 3:16), and in it God is always referred to as a "Him" or a "He." So God wanted people to understand Him as a "Him" and a "He."

However, in Genesis chapter 1 we are told that man (mankind; as opposed to "a man") is created in the image of God, both male and female...

And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27)

Therefore, we should not be surprised if God has both a "maleness" and "femaleness" to Him, so both men and women can relate to God. God could be considered as motherly (hen) and yet be called the Heavenly Father (which is what Scripture often calls Him). God is both caring and nurturing, yet powerful and strong.

Of course, God is so far beyond us, that He is certainly not a man or a woman. Though we are made in His image, and reflect some of who God is, we as humans certainly don't represent all that God is. Even if an artist were to paint a self-portrait, the artist himself is far more than his art.

What is remarkable is that God has condescended to reveal himself to us. God became a man, in the person of Jesus Christ and desires to draw us into a relationship with him, which he made possible. To find out more, please see: Knowing God Personally.

Re: Could God be a woman?
Maybe one should define God first, as I think people made him masculin. Masculin is not complete without feminin; and therefor really childish to tell the big one is only masculin. Not nice to women eighther. But like I said, maybe our definition of God is something different.

Can a Man not nurture? Can a Woman not destroy?

If You Can't Handle The Idea That God Is God, pull the covers up and go back to sleep!

Because God is God, OBVIOUSLY neither a male or female word, actually ABOVE gender, this question can only be asked by a dumb person who has been totally sold out to, mentally dominated by one of the dumb religions that needs for It to be a male or a female. Like children who can't handle ambiguities of reality but ONLY compare using simple sandbox understanding.
