“Eve of Destruction” was a popular Barry McGuire protest ballad back in the 1960s (written by P.F. Sloan in 1965). It spoke of a world coming apart by the forces of evil during the peak of the Vietnam War.
McGuire eventually met Jesus as his Lord and Savior and changed his tune from being a harbinger of death to a prophet of life. He has done concerts for our Youth With A Mission constituency on a number of occasions.
Destruction is usually the end result of deception that we now face on a massive scale in the 21st century.
Are we currently experiencing an Eve of Deception?
A vast array of words have been written during the 6,000 years of recorded history. Most are of little value–and for thousands of years, contained primarily the exploits of ego-centric kings.
Other works have inspired civilizations or offered valuable instruction or amusement.
But three stand out above all: The Bible, the Declaration of Independence, and the United States Constitution.
Let’s celebrate them this 4th of July week.
My 89-year old mom and I will visit Sunset Lane today–our hometown cemetery–to honor loved ones on Memorial Day. The scenic property overlooking Sinclair Inlet will be bedecked with 200 American flags honoring those who fought for our freedom.
We will walk the grounds and place home-grown flowers by the tombstones of our loved ones. We must never forget their love of God and family, and their devotion to our country.
“Forgetting” should be considered a sin in our lives.
Every Memorial Day I love to honor my “Uncle Dick” Boehme who gave his life for our country.
He is the Bravest Boehme.
