Christ is loving. Churches are His Body. Communities are those wherein others live together, for safety sake, among one another. Churches are usually in every Community.

Christ, The Messiah, IS Loving and caring.

Christ IS The Head of every... EVERY (emphasis added), male AND God IS the Head of Christ....

So.... Why should any Community 'suffer' seeing that EVERY Community has a Church belonging To Christ living within them each?

After having 'gathered' week after week, month after month, year after year, when will this question be applicable To The Body of Christ?

Sodom?? Did someone say too much 'discrimination'?


Ezekiel 16:49
"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy."


Ezekiel 16:51-52
"51Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. 52Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters."



Who? Who is Samaria?

Samaria is idolization; just like in American 'idol'. Such is Samaria...

Please, for those who are seeking to 'learn' and please, for those who are seeking to 'teach', the relational position of the word, adjective/noun, of the word, 'sister'. It is not 'brother' but it is 'sister'. So from where and how did The sister City of Sodom become attributed and relational, in 'gender' roles, to/with same 'sex' males in/of 'intimacy'?


Not 'mandated' to be learned, not mandated to be taught.. Not mandated to be accepted or/ and believed upon. But for those who ARE interested.....where can they receive right-ful answers?

The Mountain of Sodom:

Mount Sodom - Wikipedia

Mount Sodom (Hebrew: הר סדום, Har Sedom) is a hill along the southwestern part of the Dead Sea in Israel, part of the Judaean Desert Nature Reserve.

The Judaean Desert or Judean Desert (Hebrew: מִדְבַּר יְהוּדָה Midbar Yehuda, both Desert of Judah or Judaean Desert; Arabic: صحراء يهودا‎ Sahara Yahudan) is a desert in Israel and the West Bank that lies east of Jerusalem and descends to the Dead Sea. It stretches from the northeastern Negev to the east of Beit El, and is marked by natural terraces with escarpments. It ends in a steep escarpment dropping to the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley. The Judaean Desert is crossed by numerous wadis from northeast to southeast[dubiousdiscuss] and has many ravines, most of them deep, from 1,200 feet in the west to 600 feet in the east.[1] The Judaean Desert is an area with a special morphological structure along the east of the Judaean Mountains.
It is sometimes known as יְשִׁימוֹן Yeshimon, meaning desert or wildland, or yet Wilderness of Judah or Wilderness of Judaea, among others.

Jerusalem...

According to the Bible, King David conquered the city from the Jebusites and established it as the capital of the united kingdom of Israel, and his son, King Solomon, commissioned the building of the First Temple.

Jerusalem - Wikipedia


Jerusalem has been the holiest city in Judaism and the ancestral and spiritual homeland of the Jewish people since the 10th century BCE.

But.... Jerusalem was 'taken over' by King David....meaning the inhabitants in Jerusalem, known as The Jebusites, we're and could be those; '(J)ews' which even Christ spoke about.

And an interesting relational stance to know is Noah and how Noah was a 'grand-son' of Cain. Noah's 'father' being Lamech who was a 'descendant' of Cain, the brother who slew Abel.


Christ being 'sent' to those that 'needed' Salvation; even more so than the righteous ones. Christ was not sent for the righteous but for/to the sinners...


With Abram/Abraham having 'become' the father of 'faith' from which the Abraham 'faiths', Judaism (?), Islam and Christianity state/share commonly on. Yet Judaism being questionable seeing that it was only post Babylonian Captivity and return to the land of Ysrael that such a (J)udaism 'faith' developed.


While also keeping in mind the difference between Judaea and Juda. Judaea, being Jerusalem and Judah being a descendant of (J)acob.


And hence the Judaism. Either pronounced with a short (a) or with a long ( A).
