That's The Way Of The Lord
(Performed by Irene Cara [Jarona Thrussel])
(From "The Village Of Fear")
(Parodied off the song "That's The Way Of The World" by Earth, Wind, & Fire)
(Original lyrics by Charles Stepney, Maurice White, & Verdine White, with new & additional lyrics by Anastasia Ashworth)

JARONA:
Judge not others, & they shall not judge you,
For are we not all sisters & brothers?
Just as God up high in Heaven loves you,
We must all strive to love one another...

Whether someone's your friend or enemy,
Let your heart be open to them,
And like you'd be kind to your family,
Do just the same unto them...

What comes out of the heart
Shows what's deep way down in a rodent's soul...
And if God thinks that you're falling short,
Just change your ways, & your soul will be made whole...

That's the way of the Lord...
Live a lifestyle that is good & sincere,
For God will give well-deserved rewards
To all those who, to Christ's teachings, adhere...

Don't y'all hear me, now...


(Instrumental break)

Judge not others, & they shall not judge you,
For are we not all sisters & brothers?
Just as God up high in Heaven loves you,
We must all strive to love one another...

Judge not others, love all others
Like your brothers...

Yeah...Ohhh...

Whether someone's your friend or enemy,
Let your heart be open to them,
And like you'd be kind to your family,
Do just the same unto them...

What comes out of the heart
Shows what's deep way down in a rodent's soul...
And if God thinks that you're falling short,
Just change your ways, & your soul will be made whole...

That's the way of the Lord...
Live a lifestyle that is good & sincere,
For God will give well-deserved rewards
To all those who, to Christ's teachings, adhere...


(Instrumental break until fade-out)
Here's one of a handful of songs featured in my GMD fanfiction, "The Village Of Fear". This song (performed by my character Jarona Thrussel) was parodied off of the Earth, Wind, & Fire classic, "That's The Way Of The World", & (for the purposes of my story) heavily-rewritten to reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the Gospels.

Believe it or not, my idea to use this song in "The Village Of Fear", came from watching videos taken at Jonestown, Guyana, on the night before the tragic massacre; one of the videos featured a young woman singing "That's The Way Of The World". As it turned out, that very woman came to be the primary character model for Jarona Thrussel, & I thought it would be fitting if Jarona performed a rendition of the same song she did. Hence, I came up with this lovely gem of a parody. :D

Man, it's really amazing where you can find inspiration for stuff, sometimes! :O_o: I never cease to be astounded that my story, "The Village Of Fear"--a Disney-oriented fanfiction!--could be inspired by Jim Jones & the Peoples Temple, the Jonestown massacre, the Waco siege, the Buddhist monk immolations in Vietnam, the civil-rights movement, Guyanese history, British colonialism, Victorian history, & the works of Rudyard Kipling... :omg: (Perhaps, I should lay off the biography, history, & crime shows for a while... ^^; )

Well, anyway, what do you think of the song? :) Do tell me your thoughts! :D

"To all those who, to Christ's teachings adhere..." AMEN! I found out personally that if we allow ourselves to be filled with CHRIST's HOLY SPIRIT, we will overcome the flesh and it's sinful desires. Now, on to (ask the LORD to help me) control my love for eating too much while excercising too little. Have a great 2014 my friend.
