Light for the Last Days

SHORT TALK

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:8

Last night, I submitted myself to something which was totally impure, unholy, and wicked: the Eurovision Song Contest. I didn’t do it because I like the music; I don’t like that music. But I wanted to see what Israel was singing, and I also wanted to see if the UK song was as bad as they said it was going to be, and the Irish song was as bad as they said it was going to be.

  • For the same reasons I ‘watched’ the Eurovision Song Contest final, but with the mute button most of the time and flicking to channel 2 when the imagery was so bad I would not want that evil in my mind. I watched & listened to the Israel song, it seemed to stand out as more wholesome but sadly still pandered to the need for modern choreography. I remember the likes of Dana and Jonny… (can’t remember his name) singing for Ireland in a simple way without any choreography or indecent imagery. It’s sicking how society has changed in only a few decades. Apparently it’s evident in films (which I don’t watch) and in many TV programmes (I don’t watch them either).
    Next time, I won’t watch Eurovision because it was horrid and evil.
    This time I voted for Israel & I see she got the maximum viewer votes which Eurovision allow. That was a great comfort: the ‘silent majority’ backing Israel like that was incredibly encouraging. Those votes are the reason she came 5th!
    That bible verse is so appropriate for this evil event we call the Eurovision Song Contest. A sign of the End Times when such evil abounds.
