One of the ways I think about my faith is that I believe in a God who loves and believes in all his children, regardless of whether they believe in him the way I do, or at all. So of any person who does not share my faith, I still consider him or her a beloved child of God who he takes an active interest in. I know I've phrased it as 'I believe in a God who believes in you, even if you don't believe in him.'
Is that appropriative or offensive, to a person who is not religious, or not Christian? I hope it's obvious that I don't mean it that way, but unintentional offense is still offense.
Side note - I kind of struggled with using him/Him/Hir for God. I like the capitalization for emphasis, and I like the idea of a God who is not male or female, but equally relatable to both and to anyone who defines themself differently. But using Hir or Her tends to read as a political point and that's not the point of my question in this post. Discussion is, however, also welcome.
