a passing apparition
or the sudden flash
of lightning -- already gone --
thus should one regard one's self.”
It would be great to get rid of some of the pronouns of ACIM, referring to the He and Him and His and Father. Unfortunately we don't have a neutral pronoun in the English Language like they have in Arabic, and probably other languages, other than 'it' which is not suitable.
Nevertheless it would be good to become more sensitive to how defining our relationship to God in terms of gender will inevitably contaminate how we see God, and our relationship. We know that Jesus may have been a man while he had a physical form, 2000 years ago, but as spirit, there is no gender. So Son of God does not apply.
So far in his channelled works Jesus has given no indication of the need to make these adjustments. But there is a growing movement in our societies to claim the right to define our own gender without having it imposed on us according to our biology.
I would welcome hearing the view of others on this controversial topic.
