Any physical deformity was purged from the bloodline. None of us were born standing less than 5'9 with perfect genetic lineage we took great care to preserve the bloodlines. We left the infants born with any physical imperfection out to die to let the gods take care of them. They received the spirit and our intent and quickly took the spirit out of the body and renewed him into another.
"You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus....You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier" Amen.......HooRaah ! ! !
