Why does the Church use male pronouns to refer to God?

Question:

Why does the Church use male pronouns to refer to God?<br />

Answer:

Throughout Scripture, God revealed himself in masculine terms. Jesus often spoke of his “Father” and even taught his disciples to pray, “Our Father” (Matt. 6:9-13). Jesus himself was a man, not a woman, and he said of the Holy Spirit, “He will teach you all things” (John 14:26).
