Sep. 18th, 2005 @ 04:17 am recovering the lord's recovery
I found a Wiki page on the unnamed Christian denomination/non-denomination/monastery/ministry/cult that Ching-shih belongs to. Apparently it is the subject of raging controversy, which has temporarily been suspended by an ideological ceasefire. Got there from "Lord's Recovery," which they insist is not their name. It's interesting in that unlike other denominations, which go to great lengths to differentiate themselves from each other, this one claims that every Christian is already a member. It's ironic that the practices of a group with an obvious distaste for denominationalism could generate so much criticism from Christians who worship differently.

I honestly don't know how to feel about the edit wars over these articles. As a strong neutralist (so much so that I worry about Wikipedia's radical neutrality), I don't approve of the fact that this article has been overrun by people on either side of the debate who clearly do not possess a neutral point of view. On the other hand, Ching-shih is a good friend of mine who possesses great faith and wisdom, and he was a big part of my conversion to Christianity. On the other other hand, his conversion scared me and his other friends quite a bit. On the other other other hand, as a Christian, I should be aware of false prophets. On the other other other other hand, as a Christian, I should be wary of those who would falsely persecute Christians, as was done when Jesus walked the earth in human form. On the other other other other other hand...

I'm running out of hands. I should go to bed.

Current Music: Blonde Redhead - Misery is a Butterfly
I've volunteered to write my first pretentious music review. The enigmatically named xbxrx is performing at the 'Sco on Thursday, and I've told The Grape that I'm going to be there. Considering that I know very little about music, especially for someone who goes to a college with a highly esteemed music conservatory, it will most likely be very pretentious indeed. Right now I don't know anything about the band except that they are loud. impactbomb, if you have any information or opinions for me, they would be muchly appreciated.

They say everyone has, at some point or other, written for the crazy alternative student newspaper in college. If everything goes well, it looks like I'm going to become everyone.

Kinda funny how yesterday I was feeling guilty about going into pretentious snob mode, and now I've committed myself into doing it again. At full blast. For the entertainment of others. Eep.

On a related note, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is performing in Cleveland tomorrow, and guess who isn't going? INDIE CRED -10

Nice to know that I can drink about 139.52 cans of Mountain Dew before the caffiene kills me.

I'd think the sugar would kill me long before that, and I'm guessing there wouldn't be a sperm alive in my body after the dozenth or so can.
