The Question (ID Number 705)...
But my real question is Have you ever realized how similar the concepts of Ishmael are to the music of the doors? "Cancel my subscription to the resurrection, send my credentials to the house of detention, i've got some friends inside... what have they done to the earth? what have they done to our fair sister? ravaged and plundered and returned bitter, stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn and tied her with fences and dragged her down, i hear a very gentle sound we want the world and we want it NOW!" I hear parallels between Ishmael and much of the doors music. Is this a question you've been asked? Am i simply "seeing" Ishmael in everything?
...and the response:The statement you quote from the Sermon on the Mount is an admonition not to be concerned about feeding and clothing yourself--nothing to do with salvation. Jesus certainly was not silent about the need for salvation, as in this passage from Matthew: "'Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.' When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astounded and said, 'Then who can be saved?'” Why should I mention John the Baptist? There are thousands of people in the bible that I don't mention. I'm afraid the only Doors lyric that ever registered with me was "Baby, won't you light my fie-yer!"
