Church of England should avoid only calling God ‘he’, Bishop says!!

The Church of England should avoid only calling God “he”, a bishop has said, as a survey found that young Christians think God is male.

The Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, bishop of Gloucester, the Church of England’s first female diocesan bishop, said: “I don’t want young girls or young boys to hear us constantly refer to God as he,” adding that it was important to be “mindful of our language”.

Research by YouGov found that almost half of 18-24 year-old Christians believed God to be male, with just one in three over-65s believing the same.

In a bid to “stop” non-Christians feeling isolated or alienated,  Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, bishop of Gloucester raised concerns that the Church should refrain in its public pronouncements using solely male language to describe God.
