First of all that it was unheard to the Egyptians that god was a spirit, you are wrong. Please read Hermetica to see from where the Hebrew-Christians copied their entire creed. Second, El, Yahoud, Yahweh or Jehova are male deities and they have a wife. her name is Asherah mentioned in the OT 40 times, but mistranslated today especially by Hieronymus in Vulgata, like locus, tree, Bamoth, grove, sacred pole, high places, Bamah, Misnach, Forest, asherim etc. Of course god has a gender since he or they were created through the human imagination, hence they were male, had a wife and many children like El who had 70 sons with Asherah. You may find more information in internet, Just with your browser search for the names: El, Asherah, Yahweh and the Pagan origin of Judaism . You may even cross-examine all these information with the references mentioned in every text and reading these books.
