DATELINE: November 18, 2017, Sydney, Australia; Malcolm Young, founding member of Australia’s hard rock band, AC/DC, died, aged 64. Cause of death, dementia. Previously afflicted with cancer and wore a pacemaker due to heart problems.
Hard drugs, alcohol and satanic lyrics were Malcolm’s trademark, like the words to “Highway to Hell” above. His other main paean to demonic imagery was the song “Hell’s Bells,” (“Won’t take no prisoners, won’t spare no lives, nobody’s puttin’ up a fight; I got my bell, I’m gonna take you to hell. Satan get you, Hell’s Bells.”) When it came to popular and financially-successful hard rock of the 80s and 90s, no one did it with more rebellion and antichrist imagery than AC/DC.
It’s axiomatic to state that rock ‘n’ roll took a toll on Malcolm, as it did AC/DC’s first lead singer Bon Scott, who died of “acute alcohol poisoning,” literally choking on his own vomit after a night of heavy drinking. To say that the band has been cursed, is obvious. To conclude that they partially brought it on themselves, is also painfully conclusive. One can only pray that the rest of the band, including Malcolm’s brother-bandmate Angus Young, gets the message before “Hell’s Bells” toll again at an untimely age. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
| An encouraging word: THE BEGINNING OF CREATION |
“Long ago, by God’s word the heavens existed” (1 Peter 3:5 NIV). That simple statement is cosmologically profound. It flies in the face of atheists and evolutionists who want us to believe that the universe is an accident, that it just happened by luck. How long ago is “long ago” we don’t know, but the Bible does tell us that there was a time when the cosmos existed, created and sustained by the Word of God. We don’t know the exact chronology of how we got from there to here, but we do know Who started it all. That gives life meaning and purpose that a Big Bang never can provide.
