<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Hello, I am new here, but I look forward to asking
you folks lots of questions. I have a question that I wish someone could help me
with, I have looked up the word church and it is a feminine noun. Now my dilemma
is I am told that if you are speaking of the body it can become masculine, as to
take on the form of a masculine noun, and thereby referring to the church as a
"he" instead of a "she" or bride. I can word this over again if it is not clear
as to what I would like explained. I would like someone with a good back ground
to tell me either yes or no on this matter, either yes church is always referred
to as a feminine noun, but if you are talking about the body of Christ then it
suddenly becomes a masculine noun??? I'm looking for something constant is the
body of Christ referred to in a feminine or a masculine sense, please help me
here.<BR><BR><BR>Thanks for your help...
