The Mormon Third Eye specializes in drawing valid, inspirational connections between the worldly and the spiritual – “moral mashups.” There are very few things more worldly than American Idol. How in the world can the American Idol talent competition shed light on prophecies about the last days? Not in the way you expect, and I already checked the Internet- all of it. Only at the Mormon Third Eye can you find the answer.
The last known Nephite King Mosiah encouraged his subjects to abandon royal governance and taught the advantages of doing business “by the voice of the people.“ He taught that “Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right.”
The looming downside to this strategy, however, is that when the people choose iniquity, well… “And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land.”
American Idol winners too are chosen “by the voice of the people;” hence a quick review of the character and caliber of the winners can serve in these latter-days as a gauge on how close we are as a society to dealing with the “judgments of God.” My completely unscientific, anecdotal study of the winners revealed that all eleven of them, from pioneer Kelly Clarkson to creatively called Phillip Phillips, are excellent role models for the rest of world. None of them reek of sleaze and sin. They all project wholesome, mostly country/Christian values in their demeanor and their music. This fact itself is remarkable given the overwhelming trend of the entertainment industry to flood our homes with filth. Many of the winners were not the final choices of judges who occupy key roles in the industry. Although my research is far from being exhaustive, I believe I could wash dishes to any songs sung by any of these winners playing uncontested in the desktop Bose system in our kitchen.
