    Which does? The Catholic point of view, or the Protestant one?

    Jesus being man means that he suffered temptations just as all people do--that was the point. Temptation and sin are two different words, and are not the same thing. The whole point of Jesus was to be human. In that instance God showed us the perfect human, who rejects sin despite temptation, and who shows us the nature of God- that God loves so greatly he would take on the sufferings of humanity and more. He would have been attracted to women. He would have had to learn from Joseph the craft of carpentry. He would have had to urinate and defecate. He would have had to sleep. He would have had to eat. He would have gotten angry, disappointed, happy, tired, excited--all things, save sin.

    And interestingly, Mary his mother, being innocent of original sin as well, is called our co-redeemer.
    This is about as close as Christians ever come to acknowledging the feminine divine. As Oberon correctly points out, protestant denominations tend not even to have this.

    Jesus has no feminine qualities?

    So is this the thread to argue about imaginary friends?

    No, it's for making rude remarks to people about their ideas about their religion.

    Men have feminine qualities, just as women have masculine ones. This, however, no more acknowledges the divine feminine than it makes an all-male community organization admit women. I don't know what kind of religious services, if any, you attend; but when was the last time you heard Christian clergy refer to God as She?

    That could just be an old habit of referring to God as He. It's been that way since before the biblical books were written and old habits die hard, if they die at all. It's not realistic to expect people to break an timeless habit because contemporary society all of a sudden has a feminist awakening. It's what they've been taught forever. All mature reasonable believers understand that God is not the old man with the beard.

    You're so right.

    It does boggle the mind that seeming-rational people still want to argue about the minutia of a fairytale. I feel fortunate to have been spared this delusional state by my parents.
