Garrison of Moriah

Gerry Burrows has built a massive sci-fi city that fills an entire room, and he's gotten a fair amount of press around the inter-tubes. Why link it here? Well, the Garrison of Moriah is named for the mountain where Abraham went to sacrifice his son Isaac. At one point in the citadel there is a cross. In the battle arena, instead of the common sign citing John 3:16, we see references to more martial passages, like Isaiah 42:13 "The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies." and Psalm 18:34 "He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms."

  1. Hi, I'm glad to see you recognizing the Bible passages and significance of "Moriah". Many think I meant to say "Moria" from LOR. Also in the stadium are symbols for the 9 choirs of angels and for each of the 3 tiers (many I had to make up on my own based on descriptions). The outside walls of the stadium also have some significant Christian/Biblical symbols. And atop the center is the ark of the covenant being held. Elsewhere, the large tree, statue high above the citadel, and monument (not clearly visible) are also significant.
