And if I objected and said that maybe God was a "She", God was

why they would prefer using He or Him or His and wouldn't use the
feminine pronouns, or "it", etc.

of wordsas you go along, your own personal definitions, you can
basically say anything --- and everything in turn becomes meaningless.
Anyway, I would think it is important to define words especially in
