Why do we try to use gender-neutral language to describe God? To avoid creating an idol out of language.
note: there was a slip during the sermon. The 4-letter account of the proper name of God (Yud-He-Wav-He) is called the Tetragammatron. Nathan left off a couple of syllables during the sermon. The clips are from Oh, God, Bruce Almighty, The Shack, and Dogma, in that order.
