When we think about the counter-culture of the 1960s and 1970s we think of long hair, flared jeans, and marijuana.
This was inspired by the rock bands of the era.
Paganini was a virtuoso violinist of the early 19th Century.
It was rumored that he had sold his soul to the devil for fame and fortune and the perfection of his art.
He was known for his wild, unkempt appearance and the ferocity of his playing style.
The rock bands of the 60s & 70s were also rumored to have sold their souls to the devil for fame and fortune and the perfection of their art.
They were known for their wild, unkempt appearance and their loud rock music.
We have since seen Satanists in rock music take on a different look.
But drugs and decadence are a constant theme.
My point is that perhaps the rock legends of the 60s & 70s were devils in the style of Paganini.
Many of them followed the teachings of Aleister Crowley who was a known Satanist and black magician. His writings include instructions on how to make a pact with the devil.
I believe that the whole of the drug-soaked counter-culture was a curse induced by the rock music of the time.
And that the rock bands that inspired it were secretly Satanic.
Jesus said that a tree is known by its fruit.
The fruits of rock music are: drug addiction, criminality, promiscuity, divorce, depression, suicide, degradation, and apostasy.
My prayer is that you will see.
And turn to God and be healed.
