Is the Holy One—goddess? Because God is El Shaddai is he the voluptuous God and erotic? Or Sophia, Shakti, Shiva, Kali”? Never! On the Facebook page “Feminist Agenda Network,” linked to by Advocacy Committee for Woman’s Concerns, Presbyterian, Sonnie Swenston-Forbes, has linked with some delight to Mike Morrell’s blog and his article, “Weeping with the Goddess in Jake’s Kitchen.” There we learn all of these names for God and more.
In Proverbs God’s wisdom is personified as is lady folly. However, in the New Testament we are allowed to see that Jesus is the complete personification of God’s Wisdom. Paul tells the Church that because they understand the mystery of God, “Christ himself,” they know the one in whom “is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2: 2-3) Paul also warns the Colossians that they should not allow anyone to take them captive to the world’s deception. Goddess worship is as old as pagan cultures and as empty and deadly as any sin that has ever led the people of God astray.
Instead we abide in the pure love of Father, Son and Holy Spirit knowing that in Jesus Christ we know God.
