BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand.

Today I pray, “Dear God, It is a joy to look at life. Even when moments seem like they are full of a thousand sirens. It is a joy to look at life. Thank You for this. Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromise is the transmitting rubber tube.”
—AYN RAND

I would have said it earlier, but it had not arrived. In nearly 10 months of communication in this medium, I did not need to contend with “evil”. I am one lucky lady. My term for evil is “accuser of believers.” This is also my term for what others call “satan”, “devil”, and “hell”.

I didn’t need to mention it until it came up in a passage. And this happened now. I’ll clear the air and move forward. I refer to all of these as “accusers of believers”. And the belief that the accused believers believe in is God.

And Spirit and Source and Creator and Universe and Love and The All and Jehovah and Yahweh and Allah and Father and Lord. All of this and so forth. The energy that goes as an “accuser of believer” is “evil”, “satan”, “devil”, and “hell”. And now, let’s move forward with God.
