Anticipation of the Second Coming of Christ

It is not only Christian people who are expecting the Second Coming of Christ, the frustrated youth of America sense that judgment is near. Their sons reflect their anxiety. One popular record is called “Dooms-Day.” In his big number one record, “Bad Moon Rising,” Credence Clearwater warns that the time of the end is near and hopes that we are ready. One hit song suggests a meeting in the air with the Lord. In some of the hippie type communes, where groups of boys and girls live together in remote areas under primitive conditions, young people are turning to religion in an effort to get right with God before the day of judgment.
