Rorschach's Journal: October 16

Thought about Molech's story.
Could all be lies.
A revenge scheme planned during his years behind bars.
But if its true, what could have possibly scared the Comedian enough to cry in front of Molech?
What was it he saw?
And that list he mentioned.

Edward Blake.
The Comedian.
Born 1918.
Buried in the rain.
Is that what happens to us?
No time for friends.
Only our enemies leave roses.
Violent lives ending violently.

Blake understood.
Humans are savage in nature.
No matter how much you try to dress it up, to disguise it.
Blake saw societies true face.
Chose to be a parody of it.
A joke.

I heard a joke once.
Man goes to doctor.
Says he's depressed.
Life seems harsh, and cruel.
Says he feels all alone in threatening world.
Doctor says "Treatment is simple.The great clown Pagliacci is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up."
Man bursts into tears.
"But doctor," he says, "I am Pagliacci."

Good joke.
Everybody laugh.
Roll on snare drum.

Bit of Thought

So I recently watched a dvd on "The Secret" which tells us that we can change the world by simply thinking. Thoughts themselves in this case have become the agents for change, not deciphering. So basically think good and good will come. This is a blatant and ludicrous lie which is deceptive because random occurrences can trick us into believing we have brought something into being by our own power.

This is our essential problem, that we wish to have control; we want the power in our own hands. This is the truth of the matter, we are given absolutely everything by Grace. From initial conception, we have had no control over the matters of our lives. This is where I find solace, in my total dependence on God.

More odd information, I've been reading a Christian book for women called, "Captivating" and even though I find it awkward reading words like, "your feminine soul" to myself, I find many encouraging nuggets while reading. One, which seemed very sissy-like, was the author accrediting a visit by a family of starfish to God's love for her. She had thought about God showing her some special revelation of her love and one was shown to her. In return, she could only thank God for the experience. Today I had a similar experience. I had thoughts of some of my favorite people and unexpectedly they drove by. I thought about it, and decided that it wasn't my thoughts bringing this together, but it had to be God. At the time I was feeling low, and as soon as I saw them I was lifted up. I too could only respond by thanking God for what he had provided for me.

In the end I guess I just find it a far more viable view of life to accept that I really cannot bring anything to me, but I can enjoy all the good God chooses to bless me with. Also, lets really stop to think about what we believe, because sometimes they are just not real...or, unfortunately, our beliefs may be founded in lies.

[Interesting side note, as I finish this note I find "John Carpenter's They Live" starts playing on tv. Watch the movie and you might find this creepy as well]
Peace 2 the out and God with the Bless!

Would You Recommend Abortion? by Adam Edelstein

1. There's a preacher and wife who are very, very, poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she's pregnant with her 15th. They're living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending abortion?

2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have 4 children. The 1st is blind, the 2nd is dead, the 3rd is deaf and the 4th has TB. She finds she's pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you consider recommending abortion?

3. A white man raped a 13 year old black girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?

4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She's not married Her fiancee is not the father of the baby, and he's very upset. Would you consider recommending abortion?


If you have answered "yes" in any of these situations:

In the first case, you have just killed John Wesley. One of the great evangelists of the 19th century.

In the second case, you have just killed Beethoven.

In the third case, you have killed Ethel Waters, the great Black gospel singer.

If you said yes to the fourth case, you have just declared The murder of Jesus.

Sweet Jesus

Realizing I am Broken as well been made whole
Restoration by Spirit the truth sure to unfold
Redemption in Love complete great and mighty I'm told
Jesus sweet Jesus, Lover of my Soul

No words can express and there is no song to convey
We continue to fall short with ev'ry note we play
By symphonies or orchestra but what can they say?
Jesus sweet Jesus, You are the Way

Rock solid rock very foundation firm beneath me
The life giving tree of whose very air that I breath
Purest of clean waters shall never leave me thirsty
Jesus sweet Jesus, You're all that I see

Poverty poor people turn to their knees and pray
Forgive me not forgotten see them as always they
For the sins of the world was the price you chose to pay
Send me sweet Jesus, I will go today
