ORIGINAL: Guest

God is neither male nor female, but He is musculine in relation to us.

We are made in the image of God since within God there is the initiator (the Father), the receiver-reciprocator (the Son) and the love between them (Holy Spirit). Adam images the Father and Eve the Son, because Adam has his being first and Eve receives her being from him. Adam therefore acts as the initiator and Eve as the receiver-reciprocator while both are equal in dignity and ontological worth.

This is why the Church is also the bride and Christ the bridegroom. It is Christ who initiates (proposes), and the Church accepts.

It's all a part of the Sacramental reality of this world. God is not "like us"; it is the opposite. We are a bit "like God". The whole creation is a multiplicity of signs pointing to the nature of God, with the human family most closely imaging the God's relational nature between the persons of the Godhead.

 
 
So what you are saying is that priests are actually bi-sexual since during mass they represent both the Church (the bride) and Jesus (masculine.)
 
All men during mass are the bride (therefore feminine.)
 
Women are unnecessary during mass since men can stand in for the feminine.
 
Men can play both roles:  bride and bridegroom.
 
Women not required.
 
Is that what you are saying?

Oh, here is another way Kreeft shows his ignorance of Catholicism and Christianity and the New Testament.  There is no marriage in heaven despite the nonsense Kreeft writes.  In Matthew  the Pharisees  ask Jesus about marriage in heaven and Jesus says there is no need for marriage in heaven at all. Take a look at the New Testament and you will see how wrong Kreeft is.  Kreeft is continuously wrong about what he writes about Catholcism.  Kreeft is a Paganist and does not understand or write Christian or Catholic ideas in his writings.  Do  not be misled by Paganist Kreeft.

So man is calling man a god.
 
So man is making god in the image of a man.  man = god.
 
Jesus disagrees.  God is both male and female and spirit,  Man and woman image God not just man.
 
Jesus calls God  "BakerWOMAN making the Bread of Life."  BAKERWOMAN    Feminine, female, woman.  That is what Jesus tells us.
 
Jesus calls God "MOTHERHen gathering her chicks under her wings."  MOTHER HEN  Feminine, female, woman.  Jesus says this in New Testament.
 
Jesus calls God WIDOW searching for the Lost Coin,  WIDOW,  Woman, feminine image of God.
 
Yes, BOTH male, man and female, woman are made both in the image of God.  Jesus lets us know about inclusive and equality of the sexes spirituallly and both women and men represent Jesus and can both be ordained.

Jersus never refers to himself as the bridegroom of the church.  Never.  This false teaching of the church is a perversion and distortion to try to shut women out of priesthood.  Jesus uses other metaphors NOT bridegroom  :  The Good Shepherd
                                                                 The Good Steward
                                                                  Vine we are the branches
                                                                   Bakerwoman with bread of life
                                                                   Widow searching for lost coin
                                                                    Motherhen
                                                                    Harvester (Jesus praises Samaritan woman harvesting souls for the church).
                                                                     Humble Servant of God
 
NOT bridegroom, not.  No need for male only priesthood.  Jesus is equal
