A pathway to destruction is through an uncaring society consumed with its own self-interests and lacking genuine concern towards the welfare of others; with a lack of familiarization of current events unless they directly affect one's personal life.  

There is a gullibility of acceptance through ignorance that everything is the gospel truth that is received through the social media, internet, popular personalities, or mainstream media.  Deception, with enough truth to invite acceptance, is the target of many today who are attempting to promote agenda that otherwise would not be received; if the truth was known.

A Pathway to Destruction
Marxism and Socialism

A pathway to destruction is in allowing Marxism and Socialism, cousins to Communism, to invade the land to usher out democracy and freedoms presently experienced.  A few elite individuals are seeking to gain power to enrich their own lives rather than a healthy environment for others; with a goal to gain power, and create a permanent welfare state with total dependence on government.

It was noted that ruling by consent is when the wealthy, powerful elite, maintain control over the lower classes until the lower classes come to accept such as normal and even desirable. Marxism and Socialism being embraced, as a beneficial towards gain; maximized with acceptance until its destructive nature comes to light, then it is too late to do anything about it.

World Economic Forum


A pathway to destruction is in embracing an organization known as the World Economic Forum (WEF) founded by German professor Klaus Schwab in 1971, which has built a vast international network of state and corporate leaders to do its bidding.  The WEF's goal is to change the world into a new global system equipped to handle the dynamics of the 21st century.

Its promotion sounds reasonable to any captivated by its agenda; however its true goal is to dominate all aspects of life on earth, through what is called "The Great Reset" plan that seeks to eliminate free market capitalism; controlling every aspect of an established free society. 

Acceptance of What is
Deemed Desirable 

A pathway to destruction is acceptance of what is being presented as "desirable" taking place; which is destructive to democracy and the way of life as we know it.  A pathway to destruction is when God is left out of the picture and man seeks to control his own destiny, without the benefit of godly influence.

It was noted that it is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom (Horace Greenly). The Bible is the rock on which our Republic rests (Andrew Jackson).  If we ever forget that we are one nation under God we will be a nation gone under (Ronald Reagan).

Allowing the Ungodly to
Become a Part of the Land

Scripture reveals: Israel vowed (made a vow) to the Lord, and said, if you will indeed deliver this people (the Israelites from the Canaanites) into my (Israel's) hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities. And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Israel (their appeal), and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities (Numbers 21:2-3).

It was noted that the reason for his manner of destruction was that the Canaanites (idol worshipers) would not entice the Israelites to depart from the worship of God.  A pathway to destruction, in our modern day setting, is allowing the Canaanites (ungodly) to become part of the land; rather than derail such efforts.

Distress and Anguish


Scripture reveals: When your fear (terror) comes as desolation (a storm), and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes upon you (allowing a pathway to destruction). Then shall they call upon me (God), but I will not answer, they shall seek me early (diligently), but they shall not find me; for they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:27-28).

A pathway to destruction is when nations fail to acknowledge God. The prophet Isaiah, in speaking the words of the Lord, said: Come near you nations, to hear; and hearken, you people: Let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he has utterly destroyed them, he had delivered them to the slaughter (His wrath unleashed) Isaiah 34:1-2).  

It was noted that the object of God's wrath will be the nations, the earth, and the world; a worldwide carnage when God's indignation and fury are poured out on all nations at the end of the Great Tribulation Period (spoken of in the Book of Revelations), prior to establishment of a new heavens and new earth wherein dwells righteousness (2 Peter 3:13).

Destructive Power
of God

The Apostle Peter reminded his readers (and us of today) of the destructive power of God, in saying: Whereby the world that then was (pre-Flood days of Noah), being overflowed with water perished: but the heavens and the earth, which are now (even to this present day), by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against (until) the day of judgment and perdition (destruction) of ungodly men (2 Peter 3:6-7).

Peter also identified the reason for such being held in abeyance: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise (destruction of the ungodly), as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not wiling that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

Day of the Lord
will Come

Scripture reveals: The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night (totally unexpected by some); in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat; the earth also, and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation (conduct) and godliness (2 Peter 3:10-11).

Nevertheless we (the believers in Christ), according to his promise look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness (2 Peter 3:13) (previously mentioned). The Apostle Peter concluded with: Seeing that you know these things before (beforehand), beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked (a pathway to destruction), fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:17-18).

Things Which Will
Destroy Us

It was noted that God having power and authority to create also has power and authority to destroy that which He creates.  This was shown by the Flood (pre-Flood days of Noah). When humans become so evil, that every thought and imagination of the human mind and heart was only evil continually, God decided to destroy from the earth the humans He had created.

A pathway to destruction is further noted in the things which will destroy us: Politics without principle, Knowledge without character; Business without morality; Science without humanity; and Worship without sacrifice (Author Unknown).

Entertaining Ways of
the Ungodly

A pathway to destruction is in entertaining the ways of the ungodly; promoting and enhancing their productiveness, through ungodly characteristics foretold by the prophet Isaiah and warned against:  Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight (Isaiah 5:20-21); which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him (Isaiah 5:22).  There was a time when righteousness prevailed; but allowance is being made to accommodate the wickedness of man, openly inviting a pathway to destruction to come to the forefront if repentance is not sought.

Characteristics of the
Last Days

The Apostle Paul in writing to Timothy, a young evangelist, noted that in the last days (which we are in) perilous times shall come.  All who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. Evil men, and seducers, shall wax (grow) worse and worse deceiving and being deceived (2 Timothy 3:12-13).

Some characteristics of the last days: Men shall be lovers of their own selves, proud, unthankful, unholy, false accusers, despisers of those that are good (the godly), lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, and having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof (2 Timothy 3:2-5).  

A form of godliness is mere religion without power or spiritual life; a trait unfortunately befalling churches who fail to uphold the entirety of God's Unadulterated (Pure) Word, which which will lead to a pathway of destruction unless realization of the error comes into focus

Rejecting God's 

A pathway to destruction is in rejecting God's invitation to life everlasting, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who extended an invitation: I stand at the door (the door of one's heart), and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door (only you can), I will come and sup (have fellowship) with him, and he with me (Revelations 3:20).

Scripture reveals: God sent not his Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:17-18).

The door is wide open towards salvation of the soul; but failure to make an ironclad commitment can lead one to a pathway to destruction. Scripture reveals: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under Heaven (the Lord Jesus Christ) whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
