"Keep Pure the Stock of the Lord"(Repentances)
All About Me
This is my favorite quote because I believe we should follow god through and through or else we will get lost in this life. if somebody disobeys him, they will not be on the straight path and bad things will happen to them. That is why God sent Tribulation on the old people. This quote inspires me a lot because it is very true and it gives me the motivation to keep with God and get rid of the things he does not like.
Symbols That Represent Joseph
Stubborn, sturdy and extremely hard to move, Joseph shows all the qualities of a boulder. For example, he didn't help aunt Harriet even if she was the sister of her wife. Instead, he stuck to his principles.
He sticks to what the book says and does not have practical experience of how to live life. For example, he kills abnormal plants but does not realize how many people those plants could feed.
A tomato represents anger. Joseph get angry very easily. For example, when David made a joke about having an extra hand, he got really mad because David wished for the qualities of a deviant which is against the teachings of the Bible
A broken car represents a lack of progress. Joseph's Waknuk is unable to move because of their primitive nature and because Joseph is to stubborn to change anything. For example, you compare Waknuk to the Sealand and the progress is decades apart.
Guns are merciless and kill people in 1-2 shots. Similarly, Joseph is also merciless. He banishes or kills people without a second thought even if the person is a family member. For example, Joseph banished Gordon, his own brother, for having deviant qualities.
Joseph sticks to one principle like glue sticks to anything. Once you glue something, it does not come out easily. Just like how Joseph has his beliefs and does not accept or understand other beliefs. All in all, its a symbol of intolerance.
IS SHE OUT OF HER MIND? Coming here like that, and telling us to disobey GOD! I don't care who it is, how could somebody have the NERVE to do THAT! It doesn't matter how many deviants you give birth to, God tells you to do something, YOU DO IT! This is Waknuk, you follow our beliefs, not your beliefs. I honestly did not think Harriet of all people would want to certify a devil-inspired creature. Swap babies! AS IF! Disrespect God so a monstrous creature like that would be allowed to live! That thing of hers could destroy all of us one day in the future. The true image is the true image and even the slightest of blemishes is a sign of blasphemy. She has been so God-fearing all her life, so why now? It is just so shocking to even look at such horrible people. I almost feel disrespected.... I mean how DARE SHE? She knows that this is a God-fearing household and yet.... it's just so confusing. All i can do now is pray for her, and pray that God forgives of her sin. Yes, that's what I will do tonight. It's just.... I expected a lot better from the sister of my wife.
The Playlist of Joseph Strorm
Killing in the Name of- By The Machine- This song talks about deaths that are justified and how they are justified. This is similar to Joseph Storm's beliefs that killing deviants are justified.
God Will Make a Way-By Don Moen- The song talks about how God finds a way to help people. Joseph Strorm is also very religious and he also believes that God helps those who believe.
Rap God-By Eminem- This song is very harsh in the way it talks about beliefs. Similarity, Joseph Strorm is very harsh and the tone of it is similar to his own so this song would appeal to him. In one part of the song, it even makes fun of differences of others which is something Joseph did all over the book.
One Step Closer- By Linkin Park- This song talks about a frustrating feeling when something comes back no matter how many times you try to get rid of it. Just like how Joseph Strorm keeps trying to get rid of deviations but they keep coming back. This shows common ground between Joseph's daily life and the song itself and hence why he would listen to it.
