Wow - everything is genitalia to you. Ever take an inkblot test? The results might make someone a degree.
The thought that we must have manuscripts in their original language to understand them is foolishness of the first order. Translators exist, transcriptions exist, trains run in countries in which they weren't built, we put together bicycles for birthdays with instructions written in languages not of this planet, blah, blah, blah.

Except for the fact that you are not Messiah, this reminds me of Jesus being handed the scroll and reading the portion about setting the captives free. Now that, my friend, was a stroke that only Jesus could have managed. This on the other hand looks more like ATS theater.

Then the great Seth came and brought his seed. And it was sown in the aeons which had been brought forth, their number being the amount of Sodom. Some say that Sodom is the place of pasture of the great Seth, which is Gomorrah. But others (say) that the great Seth took his plant out of Gomorrah and planted it in the second place, to which he gave the name 'Sodom'.
“Wherefore also God gave them up to passions of dishonour; for both their females did change their natural use to that which is against nature—
H. And what the natural use is, according to them, we will say later on.
C. —“and likewise also their males, leaving the natural use of the female, burned in their lust for one another, males with males working unseemliness 3—
H. And “unseemliness,” according to them, is the First and Blessed Formless Essence, the Cause of all forms for things enformed. 4
C. —“and receiving in themselves the recompense of their Error which was meet.”
H. For in these words which Paul spake is contained, they say, the whole of their hidden and ineffable Mystery of the Blessed Bliss.
For what is promised by the [rite of the] bath 5 is nothing else, according to them, than the introduction into Unfading Bliss of him who, according to them, is washed with Living Water, and anointed with the Chrism that no tongue can declare.
