Child of a Whore!

Jesus said, "Whoever knows the father and the mother will be called the child of a whore." Gospel of Thomas 105

This is one of the most blatant sayings in the Gospel of Thomas that reveals we are not talking about an orthodox gospel.  God here is revealed as both a father and a mother.  God could just as easily be called Goddess.  She is our Mother.  She birthed us and guides us.  God in a sense is akin to the Taoist Yin-Yang.  One whole yet masculine and feminine.  God is the composite of all opposites.  One need look no further than Thunder: Perfect Mind for more opposites.  God has made the male and female one in God's self.  To know that...to worship God as Mother or even Goddess is frowned upon in many faith traditions.  And yet we have the tradition of God as Shekinah, Sophia/Wisdom, the Sabbath Bride, and the Holy Spirit...all feminine images of God.  I believe Jesus is calling for a more holistic spirituality...where God is found everywhere and within everything.
