Was Jesus Christ Really a Woman?

Everyone knows that God had only one Begotten Son who gave his life so that we could escape the condemnation of sin. Everyone apparently except the LBI institute. An article at WorldNetDaily: Was Jesus Christ really a woman? discusses a new (per)version of the bible.
LBI Institute says its version, Judith Christ of Nazareth, The Gospels of the Bible, Corrected to Reflect that Christ Was a Woman, Extracted from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, takes Thomas Jefferson’s edited Gospel one step further by "correcting" the gender of Christ and God.

Correcting the gender? "Son of God", "Son of Man", "God the Father", "God the Son", they all are very gender specific. What needed to be corrected?
"This long-awaited revised text of the Gospels makes the moral message of Christ more accessible to many, and more illuminating to all," says Billie Shakespeare, vice president for the publisher, in a statement. "It is empowering. We published this new Bible to acknowledge the rise of women in society."

(emphasis mine)Okay first off this clown's name is Billie Shakespeare!? You have got to be kidding me. Secondly how does changing God into a chick make the moral message more accessible and more illuminating? Are there really people out there who were really needing this?
Feminazi:"You know I really want to believe the Christian doctrine of forgiveness but I can't"
Femizon Friend:” Why not?"
Feminazi:"Well it's that whole 'God is a male thing. It really ruins the message for me."
Femizon Friend:” Well you're in luck! Here's the new Judith Christ of Nazareth!"
Feminazi:"Oh Praise the Lady! Now I am saved. I can be a better human being now that I can read about God the Mother and God the Daughter!"

Do you think there are people out there like that? Hardly. If they aren't Christian now they certainly won't become Christian believing in a female savior. Thirdly who is empowered by this? A woman who aspires to be a god. And that is not as grandiose a thing as it sounds. To be a god you need only determine for yourself what is right and what is wrong. Then there is the statement that this new bible acknowledges the rise of women in society. How does it do that? By telling a huge lie? They want you to believe that women have gone from the kitchen to creating the cosmos, well you really have come a long way baby.
The foreword says, "Events in the Gospel that do not relate to the moral teachings of Christ are often omitted. However, the basic narrative of Christ's life, death and resurrection is maintained."
Except for the fact that Jesus was a man. That was changed to protect and promote the sinful lifestyles of the fringe element that hates men for being, well men. Face it a real woman knows that Christ died for her. A real woman isn't empowered by the fantasy that Christ could be a woman. A real woman accepts the Saviour in Truth.
Lastly the article list some of the comments from reviewers at
Reader reviews on the book's page included these:
• "One star because there is nothing lower. May the Lord have mercy on the writers!"
• Reading the other reviews here, I can't believe that this is being touted as being an advance for women's rights. That is just not true. God sent his only SON, not his daughter. It is also true that God loves all of us, male and female the same. He created each of us as we are. We should not strive to become something we are not. This book truly offends me. I agree with the other reviewer, those that produced this book will be held responsible for those they deceive. I pray for each of them.
• May the Lord God punish the author of this translation and its publishers if they do not withdraw this herectic bible from print Amen.
• "A friend with a Hebrew doctorate noted to me: 'There is no feminine form of the name Jesus (or Joshua). Judith is the feminine form of the name Juda - or Judas.' How perfectly fitting!"

Fitting indeed. Just so you know that these biblical gender benders aren’t going to get off the hook spiritually; look at Galatians chapter 1 verses 8 and 9:
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Accursed here is the word anathema which literally means “Let them go to Hell”. Amen to that
