Culture Killers: ‘Grunge Rock’

See the source image

The “grunge rock” of the 1990s is pretty much past its sell-by date, but its stink remains in the air. It also illustrates, abundantly, what I mean when I talk about killing the culture.

Here’s what the “Rock My World” website has to say about the history of grunge rock.

“Nothing epitomizes the disillusionment, apathy, and general sense of things all being ‘useless’ than grunge music. The genre captures the essence of Generation X malaise and turns it into music. In doing so, grunge music captured the attention of a generation and became the soundtrack for a youth that had no hope of a decent future” (https://www.rockmyworld.com/the-history-of-grunge/).

Can you give me hallelujah?

On top of grunge music we have heaped “Everything is racist!”, “The world is gonna end in just 12 years!”, the Drag Queen Story Hour, and a perpetual celebration of violence, corruption, and sin.

And then we wonder what’s happened to our culture? Really?

This is what you get when you turn away from God. This is that wonderful post-Christian era we keep hearing about. When we all get all sorts of free stuff and get to do anything we want, as long as some liberal approves of it.

They didn’t want the real God, or his moral laws.

Lots of luck with the false ones.


‘Storm Area 51’–UFO Buffs Just Might Do That

It started out as a joke. Maybe. Or maybe it wasn’t. Either way, a call went out on the social media for a million UFO believers to descend on Area 51 on Sept. 20, and, at 3 a.m., to storm the formerly top-secret Air Force base in search of aliens and UFOs (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/28/storm-area-51-turnout-overwhelms-rachel-nevada/).

The local sheriffs don’t think it’s so funny anymore. Their small towns can’t handle a million people, many of whom are sure to be a few fries short of a happy meal.

When they storm the base, they say they’re going to run in some style they picked up from… cartoons.

For years, the little towns in the area have capitalized on UFO mania–motels, gift shops, diners, all with UFO/space alien themes. Now what was done in fun is threatening to turn serious.

Oh, yeah… For decades, the whole crowd of UFO nuts “knew” everything that was happening on the top-secret base. Makes you wonder how we ever kept any secrets from the Russians. They saw it on The X Files. They saw it in movies. And on Youtube. It had to be the worst-kept secret in world history.

And many of them believed in it, because when all is said and done, you have to believe in something. If you’ve lost faith in the true God, then idols and false gods and Science will have to do. And super-advanced Space Brothers who will emerge from their UFOs to guide us to utopia.

I’m not saying there’s absolutely nothing to any of that “Unexplained” stuff. But it’s awfully hard to study anything that’s been so deeply tainted and warped by our weird popular culture.


‘San Fran Not Waiting for the Earthquake’ (2016)

They’re gonna need a bigger bridge

We don’t believe in God’s judgment, even when it comes right down on our heads.

Anyway, you know you’ve got troubles when your city’s own tourist board complains that the place is done going to the dogs and is now going to the buzzards.

The Poll Said ‘Do It’–So She Jumped

See the source image

Malaysian police are investigating whether a 16-year-old girl committed suicide after her social media followers voted for her to do it (http://news.trust.org/item/20190515091101-3ss0p).

The girl jumped off a roof to kill herself–after, police say, she polled her Instagram followers and 69% of them voted “Death.” Instagram hastens to claim that actually 88% voted “Life”–but by then it was too late.

In Malaysia, “abetting suicide” is a capital offense.

Has social media become an idol, a false god? Go ahead, tell me that it hasn’t. This is peer pressure on steroids.

We please the true God by loving one another and keeping His commandments. He would never ask us to kill ourselves. But false gods always demand much more of us than the Father ever does.

Are we ready to change our ways yet? Or would we rather slide a bit further down this slope?


How Radical Was Jesus?

How radical was Jesus Christ, our Savior and our rightful king, the King of kings?

He was this radical:

“Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister. And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.” (Matthew 20:25-27)

In the ancient Near East, it was common for rulers to claim to be gods, and for their subjects to worship them as gods. Pharaoh was a god. Alexander the Great was a god. Augustus Caesar objected to being made a god (“How am I supposed to cure gout!” he cried).

But Our Lord Jesus Christ, who really was God, washed His disciples’ feet.

To this day the world’s most ferocious, insane, and arbitrary tyrants insist on being worshipped as gods. Communists call it a “cult of personality” when anybody else does it. America’s nooze media all but proclaimed that inchworm Obama a god: came as close to doing it as they could without getting laughed out of the room.

You know the old proverb, “All that glitters is not gold.” Our leaders and our rulers are a lot of glitter. Some are decent. But our world would not look the way it does if most of them were decent.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, took the form of a servant and died on a cross like a despised criminal. He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. He shall return, and establish His throne upon the earth.

He is minister to us!

A point worthy of a very great deal of thought.


‘A Human Sacrifice to… “Slender Man”?’ (2014)

What is it about false gods, that they always demand human sacrifice? And what is it about their worshipers, that someone’s always willing to perform it–at someone else’s expense, of course?

https://leeduigon.com/2014/06/05/a-human-sacrifice-to-slender-man/

Here, the false god is a cartoon character, “Slender Man”–sort of a monster made up for the Internet.

Obviously our schools and our culture are doing a fantastic job of protecting children from Jesus Christ.
