|“||So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.||„|
|— Genesis 1:27.|
A Genderless Deity refers to an entity whose concept of gender does not exist, either because it is external to such a concept or because it is simply genderless, devoid of male and female gender, remaining neutral as to the concept of gender, neither positive nor negative. Generally, an entity can be considered genderless for the simple fact of being incorporeal, as it does not have a physical body and, therefore, does not have sexual organs.
However, although a certain entity lacks sexual organs and does not have a biological gender, some entities do have something called gender identity. That is, they identify with a specific gender. The most famous case is that of God, who although transcendent and totally external to the concept of gender, He revealed Himself to humanity as a man. Jesus Christ also referred to God as His "Father" and not His "Mother" or anything neutral as "Progenitor". Due to this, some entities, even being genderless, are classified as having gender, such as Gabriel, Michael or Lucifer.
