For all the fans of Alex Jones who were shot down for daring to ask about his Satanic Rock intros, and recognized his blatant double standards — this blog post is written for you. I would like to clarify that I am an ex-Christian that understands the standards of the Christian religion. My criticism is focused on the hypocrisy latent in Alex Jones’ double standard of that which he preaches.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
— Jesus Christ: 2 Corinthians 6:14
In this article, I will examine the various occult rock groups who promoted Satanism either by lyric, brand, or performance, and the hypocrisy of Alex Jones who plays their music as “bait” to lure sinners to his Christian broadcast. I will also comment on a recent a commercial where he uses Hinduism as bait to promote his products, and a famous New Ager he interviews who admittedly denies salvation by Jesus Christ.
Christians check out The Thinking Atheist
Let me set the tone for this article. Personally, I think if something is worth doing, its worth doing right. I spent my life searching through the corridors of religion and spirituality giving every belief system my due diligence. When I was a Christian, I was the most committed Christian on the planet. When I was a Scientologist, I was a Scientologist. When I was a New Ager, I was a New Ager. I went 100% into each belief system and lived by their teachings. In 2012, I had an epic realization and became a human being free from religious and New Age ideologies. Since then, I have spent my time exposing hypocrites and charlatans who preach Cosmic Love and Divine Truth, but when tested, fail miserably.
However, I have always respected the ones who were 100% committed to their faith and walked their talk. I have encouraged people to dive in and commit so they can learn from first hand experience no matter what I have to say about it. The question I pose is . . . are you living what you’re believing? Are you practicing what you preach? For me, this matters, and it evokes a certain amount of respect no matter how deluded I think the person is or harmful their teachings are.
I have no issues with what Alex Jones does fighting for what he believes in. He is ferociously committed to his cause, and because of that, has earned my respect regardless of what I agree or disagree with. But the issue I do have, is that he presents himself as a fire breathing Christian but contradicts that stance by using anti-Christion content on his show “as bait” to attract unbelievers. I think its disingenuous, sneaky, and outright hypocritical.
I would rather see Alex drop the Christian crutch, become a humanitarian, and reach the world with whatever music or New Age teachers he wants. Or remain a Christian and not compromise with content on his show that contradicts his faith. At the least, he could live by Christian principles and drop the fire and brimstone preaching that oozes self righteousness and false humility.
Keep in mind that I think the Bible is a contradictory book and that the Jesus story is complete fiction. But I understand the Christian doctrine thoroughly, I was a Christian evangelist and missionary in my early adult life which earned me the knowledge and experience to speak from an informed, objective position. I was also raised in a suburb of Hollywood, performed at the legendary Gazzari’s, hung out with Dokken, and rented studio space next to Rat, Lita Ford and Black Sabbath.
Lets established a foundation for this article and watch a clip of Alex preaching hell and damnation at a political event. Then, we’ll unpack the shocking hypocrisy.
Hypocrisy and Double Standard
Alex has a clever way of being a radical Christian while participating in the Devil’s playground. He has repackaged Christianity to fit a narrative that serves his interests. He blends his gospel with New Age teachings, but preaches hell and damnation like a fire breathing evangelist. He preaches salvation by Christ alone out of one side of his mouth, and out of the other side of his mouth, agrees with New Agers like Steven Greer and David Icke about their Woo version of the universe.
He rants against Satanists and the occult while playing Satanic Rock songs from bands such as AC/DC and Motley Crue who have gone down in history for rebelling against all things “Christian” . . . in fact, they started the antichrist heavy metal movement that spawned a Death Metal culture who’s sole function is to blaspheme Christianity. All of which deny the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ which is the foundation of the Christian faith — the very thing he screams at his audience about.
What’s his justification? . . . that Jesus hung out with Mary Magdalene (the prostitute), sinners, tax collectors and drunkards. In other words, from his perception, he lowers himself down to the level of these people in order to save souls. Its a condescending and arrogant position to take, but one that would be expected from “god’s special club” of human sacrifice. Its like he wants to be a Christian but still wants to hang out with the “cool” crowd. So he rationalizes his sins with excuses such as — “I’m a sinner saved solely by the grace of God, thus, I can’t help myself if I sin” — That’s the logic. I think its disingenuous to the Heavy Metal bands he promotes.
As you will see in a video below, the other excuse he gives for playing Satanic music on his broadcast is “what matters is what we resonate with, and what comes out of it”. So with that logic, a Christian can be in a Satanic ritual and get something good out of it. In other words, you can use satanic Rock as long as your saving people for Christ and awakening them to the tyranny of the Globalists.
Not only does Alex not represent the Left-Hand-Path culture of Rock and Roll, but I consider it a sacrilege for him to play such music on his Christian platform. Rock and Roll was built on rebellion to the Christian church and its puritan orthodoxies. Of course, in the name of free speech, he is welcome to do whatever he wants on his broadcast, as I am free to lay out an argument for criticism. Unfortunately, his audience members who attempt to criticize him on this subject are shut down immediately by the classic “rage of Jones” which is another contradiction of Christian behavior.
Instead of playing “Christian rock music” and making a “no compromise” stance for Christ, he sells-out to the very thing he’s against — Satanism and the Occult! What is he doing identifying with that which he preaches against? Where does he draw the line between “hanging out with sinners” and promoting them? Wouldn’t it be better to drop the Christian front and awaken people without the double-standard?
You don’t see Satanists using Christian music to influence their minions. And yet, Alex accuses them of being cunning and Machiavellian. I think its more accurate to say that Alex uses deceit to lure his secular audience into his Christian trap, and he even admits that he hangs out with sinners to spread the gospel. If you ask me, I think its cunning and deceitful to use anti-Christian content to lure people into your religion . . . Satanist don’t even do that. At least they’re honest about who they are and don’t sell-out for what they stand for to inspire people. In fact, they don’t recruit followers because their philosophy doesn’t need group validation like Christianity does. I’m no apologist for Satanism, but Christianity has always been about converting people to their doctrine.
The fictitious Jesus may have hung out with sinners but he was ordered by Jehovah to be sinless. He didn’t need to sell-out to Satanism to save people — the message stood on its own. Are we supposed to believe that if Jesus were alive today that he would stoop down to AC/DC’s “Hells Bells” to get his message across? It sounds like a big fat excuse by Jones. And the fact that there is no evidence that Jesus was a historical figure, it would be better to play Rock and Roll, awaken people, and drop the fake Christian humility. Stop posturing as a lowly sinner doing God’s work . . . its pathetic.
If Jesus was tortured to die for your sins, then practice what you preach. I was taught that the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross was not an excuse to compromise with rationalizations. Luckily, my eyes opened and I discovered that I was perfectly capable of doing good in the world without the crutch.
If there’s ONE Christian artist Alex should be playing on his show its Keith Green who became a prophetic voice in the Christian world with a no compromise message. But instead, Alex rather play Motley Crue songs about satanic sex, confuse his audience, and tell them to shut up if they don’t like it.
When Jesus saved the prostitute from being stoned by the mob, he declared: “Now go and sin no more” — he didn’t say, “keep sinning and act like a victim of your fallen nature”. Alex identifies himself with the cherry picked version of the bible where Jesus is calling out the religious authorities but skips the part where Jesus says:
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
Now I’m not here to beat up Alex just for the fun of it. I think he has done his due diligence in revealing a lot of tyranny and legit conspiracy’s that have proven to be true over time (thanks to William Cooper who came before him and did not like his fear mongering approach). However, that doesn’t excuse his double standards. The truth is, intellectual integrity matters, and when he dismisses people who point out his faults, he fails to see the opportunity of the criticism. He claims to be open to criticism, but when it happens, he blows a fuse and jumps into the victim/blame game just like Mark Passio. He believes he’s being persecuted by the “holier-than-thou” crowd.
In my opinion, I don’t believe you need God to be good. All you need to do is look around the world and witness countless examples of people doing good things without believing in the bloody sacrifice of Jesus. I think InfoWars would be more effective if they weren’t preaching the “I’m in God’s club” gospel while contradicting the message with secular content. You can decide after reading this article.
I can hear Alex saying, “Zzenn, I have changed the world with my work, who are YOU to criticize”? The answer is simple . . . “Alex, you have no idea what could have been possible without stuffing Jesus down people throats . . . why? . . . because you never tried it. You may have had an even bigger impact. Sure, you have revealed the underpinnings of corruption, but how many non-believers did you turn away that you could have reached? Claiming to be a Christian while promoting New Age, even Satanic content, only makes you look desperate and hypocritical. Trust me, the Satanists are laughing”.
Before we get to the satanic “Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll,” part, lets start with a shocking commercial compromise with the very religion that violates all Christian doctrine — Hinduism.
In a blatant show of Christian entitlement and double standard, Infowars recently published a commercial (8-5-2021) using Hindu chakras and the third eye to sell its water purifier. Check out the clip below:
Hinduism is regarded by modern Theosophy as one of the main sources of “esoteric wisdom” of the East. Theosophy is the backbone of New Age occultism. Not only are the Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism regarded as “demons” in Christian literature, but the guru’s of India who practice this religion are all about raising the demon power of kundalini.
Here’s the problem with this commercial. Hinduism is about as anti-Christian as it gets. Not only does it deny the death and resurrection of Jesus (the main tenant of Christianity), but the chakras and third eye are all about raising the kundalini serpent power. The Christian doctrine labels the kundalini power as evil, representing the occult forces of the Left Hand Path,and the demonic power of Satan. What the hell is Alex doing here?
ANSWER: He’s using anti-Christian content to sell his products to cater to the “New Age” market. What other conclusion can one make? How can you preach the gospel with the veracity that he does out of one side of his mouth, and promote Hinduism out of the other side of his mouth. As the Native American saying goes:
Man who “speaks with a forked tongue”
Now Alex can make all the excuses he wants, but what he’s doing is crafting Jesus and the words of the bible to fit what he wants, when he wants, however he wants. His form of Christianity is crafted in the image of himself. His version of sin morphs to how it suits him, and when it is called out, he claims that he is “fallen” and “wicked” . . . just a sinner. But then, out of the other side of his mouth, he condemns people to hell who don’t agree with his version of “righteousness” —pretty self-righteous if you ask me.
He leverages occult content in the name of “saving the world” — the end justifies the means — and Christians who call out this double standard are shamed by Alex rather than understood. He invalidates their concerns and throws them into the pit of the self righteous Pharisees. This defense mechanism protects him from seeing his own hypocrisy, and gives him more permission to double down on delusion.
For context, I have indepth experience with kundalini, and am very familiar with its connection to the culture of Rock and Roll (read my biography for more information). So, for Infowars to include Hindu chakras and the ‘third eye’ in their Christian commercial is about as devious and desperate as it gets.
David Icke: Messiah of the New Age
Alex has had David Icke on his show on a regular basis. The outright slap in the face of his Christian followers is that Icke is a devotee of Alice Bailey who furthered the work of Helena Blavatsky the founder of the New Age movement. Alice Bailey founded the organization entitled “Lucis Trust” after the name “Lucifer” which was an occult school focused on the development of a New Age religion for the New World order.
She described the majority of her work as having been telepathically dictated to her by an ascended master entitled Djwal Khul. David’s entire message is built on New Age occultism, channeling, create-your-reality nonsense, and a stunning array of pseudoscience. In 1990, he visited a psychic who told him he was on Earth for a purpose and would receive messages from the spirit world. This led him to state in 1991 he was a “Son of the Godhead” and called himself Jesus.
So Alex has on his show a man who believes he’s the New Age messiah, who gets his information from spirit guides, believes in “anti-Christian” New Age teachings, and claims the leaders of the world are shape-shifting reptilians. To make matters worse, he’s copied just about everything he has ever published from numerous sources that were available before he got started. I also know first hand the person who trained him and got ripped off without every being credited. Read my article: David Icke: The Deluded Messiah.
In the video below, watch David talk about all people being sons of God literally regurgitating Alice Bailey’s teachings without giving any credit. Then notice how he extends that definition to mean that “he” is one of a few “special” incarnations from the Godhead that does important work on various planets throughout history. In other words, “humanity” are all points of light in the Godhead, but HE is just like Jesus who came 2000 years ago to do “his special work”. Don’t be fooled, when you listen closely and watch his lectures, it is clear that he sees himself as a messianic figure.
So here’s Alex Jones, once again, on both sides of the fence, violating every rule in the Christian book. And then you have his identification with Heavy Metal Rock and Roll which is about as entitled as it gets. But when you believe you are a prophet of God (and I would bet the house on that), you can do what you want, posturing as a Fire and Brimstone Christian, while selling-out your audience by promoting products with Satanic music, Hinduism, and New Age celebrities who deny the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t get any more hypocritical than that, and Alex justifies this with his conspiracy quest — the end justifies the means!
I think Alex would be better off leaving Christianity and continuing his work, rather than preaching hell and damnation and confusing his audience with a double standard.
I HIGHLY recommend watching Caesar’s Messiah for a massive awakening on this subject if you are a Christian. The Christian story is based on astonishing violence masked in Love.
Satanic Rock and Roll
“Alex, you don’t belong in the secular Rock and Roll camp, so stop identifying with it.” — Zzenn
Although Alex claims he’s met many Rock and Roll stars, he maintains a delusional view of the culture of Rock and Roll.. His identification with it reminds me of an annoying Christian at a heavy metal concert who’s acting like they’re part of the crowd. If you’re going to be a Satanist, be a Satanist. If you’re going to be a Christian, be a Christian . . . otherwise, get off the pot. Or you could try “being human” and help the world without the crutch of Christianity.
The raging hypocrisy of Jones that has been called out over and over by many of his followers, is that he opens many of his segments up with Rock and Roll bands that are about as anti-Christian as it gets. Everyone of these bands represent the exact opposite of what Christianity stands for. From drugs and orgies, to Satanic rituals, Witchcraft, and criminal behavior, they literally represent the occult forces of the Left Hand Path. The Left-Hand-Path is the “devils way” in contrast to the Right-Hand-Path of Christianity. One is radical individualism, and the other (Christianity), submission to invisible authorities.
Alex is a pawn in a psychological trap of religious dictatorship. He believes bad people will go to Hell and burn for eternity, and good people, who submit to the lordship of Jesus, will go to heaven and live on their knees in perpetual worship. If he thinks Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are going to hang out with him in his celestial North Korea, think again.
The following list are a few of the Heavy Metal bands Alex opens his show with.
1. Black Sabbath
Alex spins Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ song (as he does with all the others) into his Christian cause as if the members of this band were trying to assist Christians in saving the world. Just because you “reinterpret” a song, doesn’t mean you magically change the original meaning or the obvious Satanic imagery that comes with the brand. Sure, the bands had real world meaning to their lyrics, but the blatant presentation was clearly anti-Christian.
Black Sabbath lyrics presented a worldview that rejected both the hypocrisy of the church and the destructive powers of darkness. And yet, Satan appears in Black Sabbath songs as a constant source of fascination. But to repackage them on a Christian show is like putting a Satanic cape on while preaching “Come to Jesus”.
“Sometimes I feel Satan is God” — Tommy Iommi
To make my point, one of Black Sabbath’s songs is entitled “N.I.B.” which is about Satan changing his ways and falling in love. The lyrics never reveal the name of the lucky lady who gets to take Lucifer’s hand, but his affection is evident:
“Follow me now and you will not regret,” Satan says to his love. “Leaving the life you led before we met. You are the first to have this love of mine. Forever with me ’til the end of time.”
According to Alex’s religion, this lyric is inviting a woman to go to Hell with Satan. How can you preach hell and damnation while promoting a band who’s lyrics and art are clearly Satanic? Now I ask you, when you look at the picture below, do you see ANYTHING Christian about it? You’ve got the anti-Christ number 666 along with demons possessing a person on their bed.
2. Ted Nugent
I haven’t seen one member of these bands come on Alex’s show and align with his Christian quest except Ted Nugent who released a song in 1981 called “Jailbait.” Here are some of the lyrics:
“Well, I don’t care if you’re just 13. You look too good to be true. I just know that you’re probably clean.”
Yeah, sure, the lyrics are creepy, especially the part about asking a girl’s parents for permission to “share” their daughter with a police officer in order to evade arrest. But what’s even creepier is how those lyrics mirrored real life. Nugent couldn’t legally marry 17-year-old Pele Massa in 1978, so he arranged with her parents to become her legal guardian. They would stay together for nine years, and Nugent would say that at the time he was “addicted to girls.”
But Alex is fine playing sexual charged Nugent songs on his show. I have no issue with the common political ground Alex and Ted shares, but playing songs on his Christian network written by Nugent in his groupy days when he was screwing underage girls sorta defeats his mission to expose Satanic pedophile rings.
Some rock stars may secretly agree with some of the information Alex presents despite his Jesus trip, but my guess is they are quite amused that he plays their songs on his show. The Church of Satan has always gotten a kick out of the naivete of Christians. Unfortunately, religion dumbs people down, and its pretty stupid to play Satanic music on a Christian show.
3. Led Zeppelin
Of all the bands Alex plays on his show, Led Zeppelin is the biggest slap in the face to dedicated Christians. Led Zeppelin who admittedly built their project on occult symbols and Aleister Crowley’s philosophy, clearly went against the grain of all things Christian. Not only does Alex consider Aleister Crowley the pure embodiment of all evil, but he has done countless shows and rants exposing him. And yet, he plays numerous songs by by Zeppelin on his show such as Immigrant Song, Stairway to Heaven and Whole Lotta Love.
Jimmy Page, the band’s guitarist, was known for his deep involvement with the occult and even went so far as to buy Aleister Crowley’s mansion.
Crowley called himself “the Beast” from the book of Revelations. He was a heroine addict who conducted Satanic rituals with animal sacrifice, orgies, and even animal sex. Not only did he detest Christianity, but he made a practice of invoking demonic entities. He was nicknamed the “Wickedest Man in the World”. Crowley is considered the father of western Left-Hand-Path occultism and was a major influence in the Rock and Roll industry. Many bands sung about him such as Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mr. Crowley” and he was featured in the Beatles Sgt. Pepper album.
One has to ask AGAIN why Alex Jones would play music from a band that was built on the influence of the darkest occultist in history? ANSWER: Because he wants his cake and eat it too. But be careful, if you question him, he may threaten you with his godly authority. Check out the clip below as he talks about the song “Stairway to Heaven” and notice how he says that Robert Plant told him, while crying, that the song was about transcending Satan . . .lol.
Ya, that’s right, the entire band was built on Western occult knowledge, but their most famous “esoteric” song was about transcending all the other music and symbols they created thanks to “Wickedest Man in the World?” I can’t help but wonder if the band “transcended” underage groupies, orgies, drugs, and Jimmy’s tribute song to Satanist Kenneth Anger’s production of “Lucifer Rising.
It is clear that Alex suffers from a rudimentary education in this area or he wouldn’t be defending the very song that made Zeppelin a household name. Led Zeppelin never represented Christianity. Whatever good they produced in their music was of a secular form divorced from any right-wing orthodoxy.
Another occultist who influenced Jimmy Page was Austin Osman Spare the father of Chaos Magick. Jimmy got his symbol “Zoso” from the automatic writings of Spare and it became his occult Sigil. Spare wasn’t necessarily on the evil end of the stick like Crowley, but he was into some of the deepest occult work on record. His artwork revealed atavistic shapeshifting with animals, female sexuality, and vampiric imagery. Beautiful to the eyes of someone familiar with occult forces such as myself, but understandably evil and terrifying to a Christian.
In my opinion, its a sacrilege to disrespect a band of this caliber by representing them on a Christian platform. He may have talked to Robert Plant, but how I wish I could have been a fly on the wall of that conversation. Alex tends to blow out of proportion, well, — everything. I’d love to witness a conversation between him and Jimmy Page who was the founder of the band . . . maybe he should have asked him about “transcending Satan”. Led Zeppelin were in no way transcending Satan, they were raising kundalini through the forces of sexual Magick and music to liberate the world from Christian Orthodoxy. The biggest irony is that Satan represents the forces of nature, not a literal figure.
Then you have Jimmy Page dating a 14 year old girl, the on-the-road rape of groupies by crew members, their body guards assaulting innocent people, unadulterated debauchery, and the famous mudshark story where an innocent girl was sexually violated by some members of the band and their crew. Here’s a sample of what took place:
They yelled, “You want to make a fucking movie?’ ‘OK, let’s do it right now! Take your clothes off!” The woman was stripped naked and tied to the bed as they started whipping her with the shark. Appice wrote that every time the shark hit her, “its teeth ripped her skin and left tiny blood-red scars all over her back.” She “was bucking and screaming with pleasure, as if in the throes of orgasm.” The group moved on and used the shark to — according to this version of the story — pleasure her, inserting pieces of it into orifices, all while having a grand laugh.
To learn more about the “non-Christian” hedonism of Led Zeppelin I recommend reading the book: “Led Zeppelin: When Giants Walked the Earth.”
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap: The song’s narrator, a hitman, does dirty deeds (assault, revenge sex, murder) for cheap. Situations in which he offers assistance include those involving killing lewd high school teachers and significant others who are cheating on their mates. The outro is just a list of ways to kill people such as a “necktie” when you slit someone’s throat and pull their tongue out through the hole.
Hells Bells: Of all the songs Alex could play on his show, Hells Bells takes the cake for the obvious reasons. I don’t care how Alex “changes the meaning to suit his needs” its a song written from the perspective of Satan leading people who are “into evil” to hell. Basically its a celebration of people doing evil and going to Hell most likely to party with the Devil while laughing at Christian slaves in heaven. Check out the lyrics below and see if you can find one reason Alex would play this song on his show outside of being a sell-out. The lyrics LITERALLY are celebrating Satan. Throw in the groupies, drugs, and debauchery, and you have a sinister Satanic party band. One of my favorite little ditti’s is the song “Stiff Upper Lip” about Brian Johnson’s throbbing erection. I wonder if Alex is a follower of Pan.
I’m a rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I’m comin’ on like a hurricane
My lightning’s flashing across the sky
You’re only young but you’re gonna die
I 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
I’m gonna get you, Satan get you
Yeah, hell’s bells
You got me ringing hell’s bells
My temperature’s high, hell’s bells
I’ll give you black sensations up and down your spine
If you’re into evil you’re a friend of mine
See the white light flashing as I split the night
‘Cause if good’s on the left,
Then I’m stickin’ to the right
I 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
I’m gonna get you, Satan get you
Hell’s bells, Satan’s comin’ to you
5. The Rolling Stones
“‘Sympathy’ is quite an uplifting song. It’s just a matter of looking the Devil in the face. He’s there all the time. I’ve had very close contact with Lucifer, I’ve met him several times. — Keith Richards
One of my favorite songs is Sympathy for the Devil, and because I’m not a Christian, that fits well within my musical taste. Originally called “The Devil Is My Name“, Sympathy became a huge hit for the Rolling Stones celebrating the evil within us all as the voice of the Devil.
Although the Stones were accused of Satan worship because of this song, it was apparently not their intention of making a Satanic anthem. The song was intended to be an analysis of the dark side of humanity; one which allows itself to be too easily swallowed up by the banality of evil, thereby helping it to accomplish the wickedness it craves. If you understand the Devil within yourself, maybe you can deal with him.
However, if you watch audience reaction throughout the history of this song, it is clear they are relishing in the Devils voice. You will see the “Devil hand sign” held proudly in the air as crowds sing in unison to the Devils power. I think Alex would agree with the original meaning of the song “an analysis of the dark side of humanity” but why would Christians celebrate lyrics like this:
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
‘Cause I’m in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politeness
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, mm yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, mm mean it, get down
Oh yeah, get on down (like on your knees?)
Tell me baby, what’s my name?
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name?
Tell me baby, what’s my name?
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Basically, Lucifer is tantalizing the listener to confess his Lordship by saying his name with the added insinuation to “get down on one’s knees” in glorious worship. He gloats in the verses:
And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yea
But if that doesn’t shake loose the excuses Alex makes for playing the Stones on his show, I wonder what he would say about Mick Jagger composing the music for Kenneth Anger’s 1969 short “Invocation of My Demon Brother“.
This production was the darkest and most psychotic of Kenneth Anger’s films, an evocation of black magic in a Satanic ritual. Bobby BeauSoleil, one of the invocations performers, became known for his association with the Manson Family. In the film, several strange people gathered around the corpse of cat smoking hash through a skull bong. The gathering evolves into a frenzied invocation of Crowlean magick presided over by none other than Anton LaVey, founder of the church of Satan.
Clips from a Rolling Stones concert blend in with the ritual as it escalates into an LSD induced climax. Finally an African woman appears on a staircase holding a handwritten sign that says:
But why stop there . . . you’ve also got Anita Pallenberg, the sexual muse and witch of the Rolling Stones who was obsessed with Aleister Crowley, indulged in drugs, sadomasochistic sex, black magic, and was called by Kenneth Anger “more of a bitch than a witch“.
6. Motley Crue
Mötley Crüe were the sex crazed, drug induced, Satan
peddling, bad boys of Heavy Metal. They were known
for their hedonistic lifestyles and androgynous personas.
Their antics included urinating in public, groupies performing sex acts under restaurant tables, hiring 150 prostitutes in one night, wild house parties, mud-wrestling strippers, throwing beds and furniture out of hotel windows, orgies, strip clubs, and debauchery on levels that even surprised the Rock music industry.
And still, Alex doesn’t seem to have a problem opening up his show with bands like this who spit upon the face of his Jesus. I think the most lukewarm Christian would be anathema to music like this that embodies and glorifies all things Satanic.
Their most famous song “Shout at the Devil” was written by Motley Crue’s bass player Nikki Sixx. In the band’s biography The Dirt, Tom Zutaut, who signed the band to Elektra Records, explains that Sixx was exploring Satanism at the time, and wanted to call the song (and the album) “Shout With The Devil.” Zutaut was having a hard enough time getting the label to promote the band, and he knew the title would make it an even harder sell, but Sixx was determined to go with the devil theme, telling Zutaut: “It just looks cool. It’s meaningless symbols and s–t. I’m just doing it to piss people off. It’s not like I worship Satan or something.”
When Zutaut saw Sixx two nights later, he witnessed a knife and fork rise off the table and stick into the ceiling. Zutaut writes: “I looked at Nikki and freaked out. ‘There is no more ‘Shout With The Devil.’ If you keep shouting with the devil, you’re going to get killed.’ I truly believe that Nikki had unknowingly tapped into something evil, something more dangerous than he could control that was on the verge of seriously hurting him. Nikki must have realized the same thing, because he decided on his own to change the album title to Shout At The Devil.”
I find it especially interesting when I hear these bands play down Satanism while promoting it. Its as if they don’t want to look like an idiot worshiping the dark lord but then they walk like the Devil and talk like a Devil. That’s why I have a healthy respect for Death Metal bands who publicly state their Allegiance to Satan.
7. Jim Morrison – The Doors
I don’t think its any mystery that Jim Morrison embodied the counter revolution to Christianity so I’ll make this short. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll were born with the debauchery of Morrison. He was influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche (a vicious opponent of Christianity) along with many other occult authors.
He married a witch, participated in Witchcraft ceremonies where blood letting was involved, and he called himself the Lizard King . . . hmm, Lizard? Snake? Serpent? Satan? I think you can make the connection here. There’s nothing about his shamanic drug induced Lizard ceremonies that praised Jesus and promoted Christian values and I highly doubt Morrison would have ever been on Alex’s show.
When people think of Jim Morrison and the Doors, I believe they want to hear about all of the debauchery that occurred around the band. Like watching a car accident, they want blood, and Jim Morrison delivered. But I don’t recall Morrison ever leading people to Jesus or Christian values. So the question begs, why does Alex play Doors songs on his show? Is it because he likes their music and doesn’t care how it offends his Christian audience? I think that may be the case along with using as bait to attract a larger audience.
Its unfortunate that Alex bites off the heads of Christians in his audience who are justifiably offended by this content. They can CLEARLY see how it goes against the very principles of their faith. But that doesn’t matter to Alex — the end justifies the means — and if anyone gets in the way, he will stomp their heads into the ground and keep on going. For it is THEY who are in the wrong, not Alex. He has invented his own version of Christianity and his audience better adjust to it or be shamed. Alex has decided that the only verses he needs to justify his preferences are:
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. — Matthew 23:27
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at this glutton and drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ — Luke 7:34
He was calling out the religious leaders of the day because they were judging him by the Laws of Moses which prohibited mingling with unbelievers. But there are plenty of other New Testament verses that call disciples of Christ to separate from the world and sin not.
This is about calling Alex to a higher standard.
If you are an unsaved heathen, then the Bible says to not judge because “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). But Alex has been redeemed under the blood of his savior Jesus Christ, and because of that, he is called to separate himself from the world and “sin not”. There are more scriptures that refer to this than there are that excuse mingling with the dark side. And consider for a moment that hanging out with unbelievers was for the purpose of converting them, not partying and celebrating with them . . . read below:
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. — 1 John 2:15-17
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. — Romans 12:2
But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. — 1 Corinthians 5:11
Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you. — 2 Corinthians 6:17
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. — Ephesians 5:11
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? — 2 Corinthians 6:14
According to the bible, believers are allowed to hang out with sinners as long as they are trying to convert them, and if not, they are to separate from all things evil and secular. I don’t think satanic Rock and Roll fits into that category no matter how you spin the meaning.
So why doesn’t Alex expose the bands that helped destroy Christianity in America? Why doesn’t he go after Death Metal bands who are flourishing in the industry? Why doesn’t he call out the sins of these rock stars instead of the sins of his audience who are simply asking why he’s playing antichrist music?
Does Alex not care that his choice of music might effect a new convert who left the Heavy Metal scene? That it becomes a block for them to watch your show? Does he not think of that when he’s calling people to “get right with Jesus”? What’s “right” for Alex’s version of Jesus? Its a very confusing message for converts new to the bible and veterans who know the bible.
Alex reminds me of a lukewarm Christian that wants his cake and eat it too. He commits the same hypocrisy when he “doesn’t love his enemies” or “bless those who curse him” when he’s yelling at his perceived enemies. His Old Testament “righteous anger” contradicts the New Testament rule of forgiveness.
I personally find Christianity repulsive because it condemns children to to a “born in sin” status requiring a bloody human sacrifice to be forgiven by an angry father figure in a heavenly Penthouse. I think humans are born “as is” in their natural habitat surviving on the evolutionary continuum. And yes, evolution is messy — life is unpredictable. But there is no pretension or guile here. Life is what it is, and unless we except it “on it’s own terms”, we will continue to invent stories and join established ideologies that numb and distract us from reality.
Christianity will lull you to sleep in a safe story where you feel forgiven and protected by anthropomorphic invisible parents. It will reduce death anxiety and give you a new box to put your unowned childhood trauma in. Truth, on the other hand, will make you feel uneasy at times, but radically free, because your alive in the unpredictable mystery. Sometimes you will feel terror and other times bliss, but you are guaranteed to experience breath-taking wonder as you engage the unknown. The following are some quotes by the famous mythologist Joseph Campbell:
I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.”
“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.”
“The first step to the knowledge of the wonder and mystery of life is the recognition of the monstrous nature of the earthly human realm as well as its glory, the realization that this is just how it is and that it cannot and will not be changed. Those who think they know how the universe could have been had they created it, without pain, without sorrow, without time, without death, are unfit for illumination.”
― Joseph Campbell
I hope this article validates the followers of Alex Jones who were shut down for bring this issue up. And I hope it sheds light on a wider perspective of life. Travel well my friends.
