When will the first robot come to faith? This morning, I was enjoying a wonderful morning with my wife at Mälaren. Sitting there I read the Summer issue of “de nieuwe Koers” a Christian magazine from Holland that is released eight times a year. The article that caught my attention was: Will in the year 2043, the first robot come to faith?” An interesting thought. Later today I found an article in...

Why I don’t (yet) believe in the restoration of Ted... I have been following the Haggard story from the very beginning of his ministry and I really appreciated his book “The life giving church” – I still like the book. Truth is truth no matter who speaks it out, independent of their circumstances.

“Eve of Destruction” is a protest song written by P. F. Sloan in 1965. Several artists have recorded it, but the best-known recording was by Barry McGuire. The recording was made between July 12 and July 15, 1965 and released by Dunhill Records.

In this particular recording Barry McGuire integrates new political and world issues within the context of the old song. Therefore his message is still relevant and as a dart in the heart whether we think of war, environmental issues, politics, power, brokenness and any other subject that is threatening our existence on the face of this earth!

Eve 2012 Lyrics by Barry McGuire

(I am, and I also know that Barry is very greatful, that Delores Berg has written down these lyrics)

The western world, it’s in danger, We the people have become like strangers

Taking polls and opinions, While the fabric decays, for the greed

of the few, how must the innocent pay. And the children are watching, you can

Hear how they pray

And you tell me, Over and over and over again, my friend

You don’t believe, We’re still on the eve

Of destruction

Think of this green Earth, A tropical rainforest

Then take a look around to the Sahara desert, You want it cut it down,

burn it to the ground, leave barren and waste

Till there’s no room for living animals, rivers and lakes

And there’s nothing to stop it but a miracle of faith

And you tell me, Over and over and over again, my friend

You say you don’t believe, We’re still on the eve of destruction

No, you don’t believe that we’re, Still on the eve of destruction

I know you understand, What we’re trying to say

Can’t you see the madness, That’s led up to today

We believe it’s time for a change, For a new golden age

Where the business of life runs in harmony with nature

For nature reflects the beauty within ourselves

And this change in attitude will ring

Out the liberty bells, for the hungry

And the homeless and helpless as well

And you tell me, Over and over and over again my friend

You say you don’t believe we’re still, On the eve of destruction

You don’t believe that we’re still, On the eve of destruction

At the source of silence, whales sing, The song of creation

Transcending the boundaries of, Our souls imagination

You can’t twist the truth, It knows no regulations

‘cause the truth is in love, freedom, And cooperation.

Let there be peace in your heart, That’s alright, that’s where it starts

Let there be peace tonight in, All the nations, for the music

Of life is in our laughter and liberation

And, you tell me, Over and over and over again my friend

You don’t believe that we’re still, on the Eve of Destruction

You don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction

Barry McGuire
