God’s Gender with Avery Smith–Hosea 11:9

By taking on Hosea 11:9 Avery Smith, host of Blessed Are the Binary Breakers podcast, cracks open a rich discussion with Bible Bash co-hosts, Liam Hooper and Peterson Toscano.

Avery writes: “I interpret God’s declaration For I am God and not a man in Hosea 11:9 as, among other things, evidence of Their rejection of being assigned a human gender and the roles implied therein.”

Could God be making a declaration of gender? What is Hosea the prophet trying to do and say to the people? And what about God’s radical swings from tenderness to threats of violence? 

In addition to covering these topics and more, Avery highlights best practices for ministers and places of worship when addressing non-binary people by name and pronoun.

The entire conversation is fresh, insightful, and a lot of fun.

You can hear Bible Bash podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and wherever you get your podcasts. We are a project of Ministries Beyond Welcome and part of the Rock Candy Network.
