“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 well-known journalist with one of the fastest growing news podcasts in America was recently asked why left-leaning corporations like Comcast and Disney support socialism.
He admitted they knew that tearing down the capitalist system in America would hurt their profits. But they were still committed to doing so.
A viewer asked, “Why would they do that?”
He replied: “I don’t know.”
I think I do.
It’s the insidious fog of deception.
