Over the last century or so, there has been an obsession with writers to address and personify people as “who” and “things” as what.

For example “Who’s that?” or “What’s that?” and so on.

However, in the German language, the definite article before a noun can be masculine, neuter or feminine … eg the spoon is the masculine ‘der’ in der Loffel (with an umlaut on the “o”); the knife is the neuter das in das Messer; and the fork is the feminine ‘die’ in die Gabel. 

How did this come about? No-one knows … it just is! People just accept it … and this applies to many languages.

However, as we shall see, man’s languages, being given by God, have a ‘parallel’ characteristic regarding gender.  

Now, as there is only one Bible … The King James Bible … its haters get all high and mighty … of course … all carrying their First Year Greek lexicon under their arms. 

A case in point is the following scripture where Jesus is talking to the lady at the well …

Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (John 4:22)

Bible critics say “Shouldn’t that be who we worship?”

Furthermore, they say …

“Fancy calling Jesus a ‘thing’!” (Luke 1:35) … and Jesus a ‘which’ (Matthew 1:20) … and the voice from heaven a ‘which’ (Luke 3:22) … and people called ‘which’ John 7:39) … and the Holy Ghost called a ‘which’ (John 14:16; Acts 2:33; 1 Corinthians 6:19) … and God called a ‘which’ (Acts 15:8; Matthew 9:8)”.

But then again, there are many examples of God and Jesus being ‘personified’ and called ‘who’ … with ‘God who’ (Genesis 35:3; 49:25) … and ‘Jesus who’ (Matthew 1:16) and so on.

Now, on top of all this, we have God the Father, and God the Son and God the Holy Ghost … and these three are one … they are masculine (1 John 5:7-8)!

All a bit confusing?

“It’s no wonder” they say “we have had to rewrite the Bible with proper pronouns … to get some consistency and update the Bible!”

Now, all Greek nouns have their own distinct gender of masculine, feminine and neuter … with the masculine denoted by the article ‘o’; the feminine by the article ‘a’; and the neuter by the article ‘to’.

So Dear Reader, if you want to know the height of hypocrisy of these Bible critics … look no further …

Being the unclothed word emperors they are, King James Bible correctors ignore the fact that the word for “spirit’ is pneuma … and this word is neuter.

Now, The King James Bible correctly translates pneuma as “itself” … unlike bible versions incorrectly translating as ‘himself’.

Furthermore, the ‘toilet’ paper bibles such as the ASV and the NIV (always leave one in the little room of relief and drainage in case you run out of the genuine article), call God a ‘what’ (Acts 17:23) instead of “whom” … which The King James correctly translates as ‘whom’!

Now, back to Jesus at the well … when he says of the Samaritans … “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.” (John 4:22)

Jesus gives the answer that the ‘what’ is a ‘who’ … with the object of worship being God the Father (John 4:23).

But then again, Jesus was merely asking … “What do you worship?” … which is strictly correct … as they could have been worshipping a totem pole, an animal or an ancestor … or something else.

Jesus knew that the Samaritans were mixed bunch with all sorts of heresies, wrong doctrine and beliefs that had infiltrated their worship.

But then Jesus narrows it down … we at Jerusalem worship a person … God the Father (Hebrews 1:3).


So here is the explanation to all of this who, what, which, thing conjecture. 

All men’s languages ascribe a gender to their nouns of masculine, feminine and neuter … but God’s own special language, in the English, interchanges masculine and neuter according to the grammatical context … as he chooses to do so!

God has his own ‘above man’s’ language … unique to himself.

1. In the Godhead, the Word (Jesus) is both masculine and neuter … as the Word is simply a word … and therefore, strictly speaking, gender-free and neuter … and as he is one with the Father, he is also masculine (1 John 5:7-8). He’s a person, neuter and masculine … all at the same time.

2. So when the Word enters Mary, he overtly become a masculine baby … and his maleness comes to the fore … the neuter Word in the flesh (John 1:14) … but still neuter. HE IS BOTH at the same time. 

3. Furthermore, Jesus is both the Son of God and the Son of man … a Spirit God manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). HE IS BOTH at the same time.

4. In addition, Jesus is also called the Light … and light can be both particle and wave at the same time (John 1:7. 8. 9). HE IS BOTH at the same time.  

Indeed, God and the Godhead are not human beings … and they will not be demoted, diminished and subject to man’s arbitrary classifications of gender.

Depending on the context of the English King James Bible, God has and will, determine his neuter-ness or masculinity … whether he will be a who, a what, a which or a thing.

Bible critics hate the King James, and in attempting to fire bullets, simply shoot blanks … exposing themselves to being the clouds (clowns?) that they are (Jude 1:12)

God is uncreated … unbounded … and cannot be contained by man’s gender re-assignments (Isaiah 58:8-9).

So God, in all his entities as Father, Son and Holy Ghost, is a physical being, a which, a what, a who, a thing, a person, a masculine he, a neuter being, a Spirit, and an it.… how about that?

God being God, will be a what or a who, masculine or neuterwhen he wants and where he wants.

But here’s the real crime … King James Bible correctors undermine, bully and intimidate the faith of millions who believe The King James Bible to be inerrant, infallible and inspired … without error … but these in turn, scorn and deride for those who still believe in an error free King James.

So sad … so bad.
