ACDC's Brian Johnson Wants a God Who'll Look After Him
Brian Johnson of ACDC states in his autobiography that he has “never believed in God as such, but if there has to be one, then let it be the one who looked after me.” (1947-present)

“But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee...” —Luke 12:20
There's not a more demonic band than ACDC. For decades now the group has held together, leading fans unanimously in praise of Satan and joyful glee that they're all on a HIGHWAY TO HELL.
Tragically, that's where they're all going to spend eternity. 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.”
ACDC has destroyed the lives of tens-of-millions of young people, leading them into spiritual decadence, sexual immorality, rebellion against God, substance abuse and the lake of Fire. God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7). God said what He meant, and meant what He said in the Scriptures.
Jesus proclaimed in John 10:35 that the Scripture cannot be broken. All Christ-rejecters will be cast into the lake of Fire to be tormented day and night for ever (Revelation 20:11-15).
Sadly, at the young age of only 33, AC/DC's lead singer Bon Scott (pictured far right), “drank himself to death,” according to the official coroner's report...
Bon Scott recorded six studio albums with AC/DC, beginning with 1974's "High Voltage." It was shortly after the release of the somewhat foreshadowing sixth album, 1979's "Highway to Hell," that Scott died (February 19, 1980). In keeping with his rowdy persona, the official coroner's report stated that Scott had drank himself to death. "Highway to Hell" sold over a million copies during its initial run (it has sold seven million to date) and climbed to place at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart.
Scott epitomized the role of a God-hating rebel who abused drugs and indulged in sinful living. His death is just one of hundreds in the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Shame. Psalm 55:23, “But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.”
Scott was found dead in his car after an indulgent binge left his body lifeless and his soul at the reality of the “Highway to Hell” which Bon Scott recorded just months prior to his tragic death. Scott had been taking medication for liver damage prior to his death.
Bon Scott, who wore a Satanic pentagram around his neck, sang in his infamous song entitled Highway to Hell...
“Hey Satan, paid my dues, playing in a rockin' band, I'm on a highway to hell.”
Circus Magazine reported:
“Throughout the AC/DC catalogue, there is a disturbing correlation between pleasure/sex/drunkenness and unconsciousness/death, which has now reached its tragic culmination.”
After Scott's untimely death, Brain Johnson took over as ACDC's lead singer, and has been with the band ever since. I am saddened by Bon Scott's death, and I'm equally saddened that Brian Johnson rejects the God of the Bible, and I'm very saddened that hundreds-of-millions of ACDC fans are going to be cast into the Lake of Fire with them at The Great White Throne of Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15).
Hebrews 9:27 teaches that judgment immediately follows death. The second you die, you will either be escorted by angels to the gates of the Heavenly city; or else you'll find yourself suddenly burning in the flames of Hell beneath the earth. Wherever you end up, your final judgment will await. For Christians, they will be judged at The Judgment Seat of Christ immediately following the Rapture of the saints from the earth (2nd Corinthians 5:10-11). For the unsaved, they will be judged and sentenced to the Lake of Fire at The Great White Throne of Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15). This judgment of the dead will follow the 1,000-year Millennial reign of Jesus Christ from Jerusalem over the earth.
In their album, BACK IN BLACK (which has sold over 42,000,000 copies in the U.S. alone); one of the most popular songs is HIGHWAY TO HELL. All across the world in bars, nightclubs and concerts, ACDC fans sing along in unison, “I'm on a highway to Hell.” And they certainly are! America is on a Highway to Hell. Why should God “look after” Brain Johnson as he states in his autobiography, when Mr. Johnson spits on God, trampling underfoot the Son of God? Hebrews 10:29, “Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” Brian Johnson is in serious trouble with God.
Brian Johnson openly denies the Son of God. 1st John 2:22 teaches that only a liar and an antichrist denies the Lord Jesus Christ. Brian Johnson claims to be an atheist as far as the Christian religion goes. Yet he leaves open the possibility of an existing God. Johnson states that he has...
“never believed in God as such, but if there has to be one, then let it be the one who looked after me.”

Oh, God is going to look after Brian Johnson alright, by taking out His vengeance upon all Christ-rejecters in flaming fire, where there is no rest day-nor-night (Revelation 14:11), where the smoke of their torment will ascend out of the bottomless pit for ever and ever and ever.
AC/DC's philosophy and music not only drove Bon Scott to a premature death, but the U.S. Army used ACDC's music as “psychological torture” to drive Manuel Noriega out of the Vatican Embassy and into prison. During the American invasion of Panama in 1989, troops blasted ACDC's “Highway to Hell” in order to drive Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega from the Vatican embassy where he had taken refuge (a tactic also used by the FBI at Waco). What do you think this type of mind shattering music (noise) does to a teenager's mind?
Rock music is of the Devil, adversely affecting the nervous system, more addictive to the body than crack cocaine. I've never been able to steer anyone away from so-called Christian Rock, which is not Christian in any sense of the term. Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] bands like Stryper, Third Day, Jars of Clay, TobyMac (playing a range of music from trashy ghetto Hip Hop to Ozzy Osbourne style heavy metal), have disgraced the name of Christ, infiltrating the churches, masquerading as true Christian believers; but they are of the Devil, singing for the Devil, serving the Devil, and being rewarded greatly by the Devil. It is tragic!
I do NOT condemn Brian Johnson, for we are all guilty sinners deserving of divine punishment in Hell fire and damnation (Romans 3:10,19-23). Ecclesiastes 7:20, “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” If it weren't for God's grace, I'd be on my way to Hell too. Would God save Brian Johnson after all the evil he has done in his life, having turned tens-of-millions of young people away from God and into Hell? Yes, God will forgive even the vilest sinner who comes by way of the cross of Jesus Christ, trusting upon the shed blood of Jesus Christ to take away their sins (1st Peter 1:18-19).
Isaiah 1:18, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” God is willing to negotiate with anyone, if you're willing to reason with the Lord. That's exactly what Isaiah 1:18 invites us to do, come to the Lord, reason with Him, and if you'll accept God's terms (which is forgiveness on the basis of Christ's blood sacrifice), then you will be forgiven and saved eternally. I was saved when I was 12-years old. I came as a SINNER and trusted upon the SAVIOR. It is the precious blood of Jesus Christ that TAKETH our sins away (1st John 1:17; Colossians 1:14; Revelation 1:5; 7:14 — King James Bible). There is absolutely NOTHING that we can do in our own strength, merit, or self-righteousness to appease the wrath of God against sinners (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 10:3-4; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5). We are saved by Christ's righteousness and not our own (Matthew 6:33; 2nd Corinthians 5:21). Amen and amen! Jesus paid it all.
ACDC was up-front with their fans when they made it clear that they not only achieved fame as a Rock band by Satan's power, but that they also desire to drag their listeners into eternal damnation with them...
“if God's on the left, I'm on the right, I'm gonna take ya to hell, I'm gonna get'cha, Satan got'cha, Hell's Bells, If you're into evil, you're a friend of mine.”

Isn't that terrible. Can you imagine having to answer to God for putting such evil thoughts into the hearts of millions of teenagers? Bon Scott's eternal destiny in the Lake of Fire will be hotter than anyone could possibly imagine (Psalm 9:17; John 3:36; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8). It is so sad. By the word of his own testimony and unbelief, it is more than likely that Brian Johnson will join Bon Scott in Hell unless Johnson comes to Christ before he dies.
Where will you spend eternity friend? Will you also sing gleefully with reckless endangerment that you're also on a highway to Hell? Brian Johnson is on a Highway to Hell. 1st Peter 1:24 says that this life is very short, withering away like the grass of the field, and the glory of man as the flower here today and gone tomorrow. 1st Peter 1:24, “For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”
The Word of God will endure forever. Why listen to men? Why sing about going to Hell? Trust me, you don't want to end up in Hell. The rich man in Luke 16 who went to Hell was in horrible torment, dehydrated and begging for just ONE DROP of cold water, but was denied. You won't be able to have even one drop of water in Hell... not one drop. Do you want to put your self into that kind of a horrible situation? Do you really think that God won't do what He said He'd do? You're a fool if you don't obey the Bible. God means what He says, I assure you friend. John 3:20 tells us WHY people won't come to THE LIGHT to be saved. John 3:20, “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” Jesus is the Light (John 8:12). God's Word is the LAMP (Psalm 119:105).
Sinners won't come to Jesus, Who is the living Word of God (John 1:1-3,14; Revelation 19:13) to be saved, because they love their sins too much. Sexual immorality keeps many people from coming to Christ for salvation. Even though a person doesn't have to stop committing sin to be saved, they MUST acknowledge that their ways are sinful to be saved; which is self-admission. Most people won't do that. Most people refuse to admit that they are woeful sinners. Most people are cocky, arrogant, and sinfully proud. What need does a person have for a Savior, if they are not a sinner on their way to Hell? Only a guilty sinner headed for eternal damnation needs a Savior. Most people love their sins and are unwilling to admit that what they are doing is wrong in the eyes of God. Most people justify their abortions. Most people justify and love their adultery. Most people justify their pornography. Most people love their sins.
Man Refuses to Come to Christ Because He Loves His Sins
I once witnessed to a Catholic man who admittedly was living a sinful lifestyle. I told him that eternal life is a free gift, paid for by Jesus Christ, and that he could be saved without giving up anything. Eternal life is a gift (Romans 6:23). We are the one's who receive it; God asks nothing in return. Salvation is receiving; not giving. The man said that he was not willing to get saved at that time, because even though he understood that eternal life is a free gift without works, he also understood that God would expect him to make changes in his life as a Christian once he got saved. He said he wasn't ready to make those changes and didn't want to be in that situation.
So he chose to remain unsaved, living in his sins without the conviction of the Holy Spirit that indwells every true believer (Romans 8:9). That man didn't want the Holy Spirit in his body. That is one of the most honest men I ever witnessed to, although very foolish and rebellious against God. He is likely going to burn in Hell one day, if he DIES IN HIS SINS; but he fully admits that he loves his sins too much to come to THE LIGHT... LEST HIS DEEDS SHOULD BE REPROVED (John 3:20). Sin keeps people from coming to Christ to be saved. Notice what Jesus said in John 5:40... “And ye WILL NOT come to me, that ye might have life.” Notice that Jesus didn't say YE CANNOT; but rather, YE WILL NOT. People choose not to come to Jesus Christ to be saved. They are on a Highway to Hell.
Roman Catholics Refuse to Come to Jesus Christ
Roman Catholics KNOW that the idolatry they are committing is wrong deep down inside their hearts; but they FULLY REJECT God's Commandments to keep their OWN TRADITIONS (just as Jesus said in Mark 7:9). Men are evil, stubborn, and you can't tell them anything. Most professed Christians are fakes, phonies and as worldly as can be. You cannot talk to them about the things of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:21), confrontational soul-winning (Matthew 28:19), exposing false religions (Titus 1:10-13) or exposing the evils of Christian Rock in the Church (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17). Genuine Christianity is despised by most professed Christians today, because it is so radically different than the milquetoast, pansy, compromised, watered-down, New Age oriented, apostate, teachings being circulated in the world's churches today. Let's get back to the Bible, doing as Jesus commanded in John 5:39... SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!!!
ACDC are Sexually Perverted, Evil, and Mock God
I saw a YouTube video of a recent ACDC concert. Brian Johnson leads the audience, tens-of-thousands of fans, to sing in unison... “I'm on a highway to Hell.” There are giant movie screens on stage behind the band, showing flames on both sides, mocking the Bible. The band and many fans are wearing hats with devil's horns. The guitarist, Angus Young, sticks his guitar between Brian Johnson's legs, near his crotch, making it look like an erect penis. It is shameful and evil. It is hard to actually witness tens-of-thousands of people all gleefully singing that they're going to Hell. It is tearful if you believe the Bible and love the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you care that the souls of billions of lost sinners are headed straight for the Lake of Fire. It's telling that 42,000,000 Americans have bought ACDC's BACK IN BLACK album, not counting all the other ACDC albums sold in the U.S. No wonder abortion is so commonplace and our nation has forgotten God.
God will cast each and every one of them into the Lake of Fire as 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 and Revelation 20:11-15 warns! God will not be mocked by evil men and women. If you die in your sins (John 8:24), God the Father will be your Judge in eternity (Revelation 20:11-15).
You Can Depart from the Highway to Hell
Come to Jesus Christ! Won't you repent toward God and trust upon Jesus' precious name for the forgiveness of your sins? Thank God, He has made a narrow road which leads to eternal life and Heaven for those who come by faith, as guilty sinners to be washed in the precious blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1st Peter 1:18,19).
There are many frightening aspects of dying a Second Death in the Lake of Fire that should scare you if you're an unbeliever; but one particular phrase in Revelation 14:11 below jumps out at me as being the most frightening for those who go to Hell... “no rest day nor night.” If you are a Christ-rejecting unbeliever, the Bible teaches that you WILL go straight to Hell when you die. You will be tormented in flaming fire, for ever and ever. And the Bible teaches that you will have NO REST, neither day nor night, for all eternity. Are you willing to take that chance with your soul? I'm not.
The tragic part is that NO ONE has to end up in Hell. It is a choice that is yours alone to make. I chose Jesus at age 12, trusting upon His name to take away my sins. That was decades ago. I've felt the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life ever since that moment (Romans 8:9). You can know Jesus too my friend. It begins with you acknowledging your sinful and hopeless condition. You are a guilty sinner for breaking God's Laws. Burning in Hell forever is the punishment for one's sins(2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9).
The good news (which is commonly called the Gospel) is that Jesus paid for our sins. The Godhead became incarnate in the flesh of Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:9 - All Scripture references are quoted from the inspired King James Bible). Jesus was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23), being the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16). Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 1st Peter 2:22). Jesus was crucified for our sins, dying a shameful death that He didn't deserve to die (2nd Corinthians 5:21). Jesus died, was buried and rose again after 3-days (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus ascended into Heaven and applied His shed blood to the mercyseat in the heavenly tabernacle (Hebrews 9:12,22-24; Revelation 21:3).
Salvation was made freely available to ALL, to WHOSOEVER shall call (appeal unto) upon the name of the Lord (Romans 10:13). Salvation comes by repentance toward God to be forgiven of one's sins by faith in Jesus' name. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” Please get off the highway to Hell. I have just shown you the narrow way which leadeth unto life, which few people ever find because of the vail of unbelief over their heart (2nd Corinthians 3:14-17). I beseech you to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins to be saved.
Brian Johnson is Living a Lie
If Brian Johnson, or any other Christ-rejecter who gleefully boasts that they are going to Hell, thinks that God is going to look after them in any good manner, they are kidding themselves. Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Brian Johnson is agnostic, i.e., not sure if there is a God. The truth is that God has been looking after Brian Johnson very well, as God does to us all; but that won't last beyond the grave. Despite the worldly riches and sinful pleasures that Satan has given to Brian Johnson; God has given Mr. Johnson his health, food and the ability to enjoy life. Without God we would all perish immediately. God is a merciful and long-suffering God (2nd Peter 3:9).
We all enjoy God's green earth, the fruit of the trees, and the rain that brings crops. We all enjoy the same blessings bestowed upon us in life. Some of us suffer physical health problems more than others. I suffer from damaged spinal nerves in my neck, causing much tingling, burning, weakness and a puffy sensation 24/7. It is a woeful burden that I endure day-by-day, debilitating me from doing many things I used to be able to do. Yet, I thank and praise God for what remaining health I do have. God is good!
Brian Johnson speaks of God as if He were a new living room set or a new car that he's considering buying. My friend, God does not come in blue or lavender to fit your agenda. God doesn't come in different sizes. You cannot choose your God. You can choose amongst the millions of false gods, but if you want the true and living God of the Bible, then there is ONLY ONE! Please read, Searching For God In All The Wrong Places.
Mr. Johnson says that he has no belief in a God as taught in the Bible, but he'll consider adopting a god that fits his whims, that is, a god who'll look after him. What a horrible thing to say. God has been looking after Johnson, as God has all of us. God has been good to all of us. I don't care how bad you may have it, God sent His only begotten Son into this sin-cursed world to pay for your sins and mine with His precious blood. Psalms 145:9, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”
God is kind even to the evil and the unthankful. Luke 6:35, “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” ACDC has led a hundred million souls further into darkness, boasting of their future in the Lake of Fire. It's all a big joke now, but it won't be when they die one day and plunge into the depths of Hell beneath. Perhaps you don't believe in a literal Hell. That's a pretty big and risky assumption, don't you think?
What if you're wrong and the Word of God is right? Have you ever stopped long enough, and thought it through, what will happen to you if you're wrong? You will spend eternity in a prison of flames and torment, with no escape, no remedy, no way out, and no one to reach out to you anymore. Right now God loves you and He's reaching out to you through me and other Christians like me who are concerned about the souls of others.
As a believer I have God's Holy Spirit living within me (1st Corinthians 3:16-17; Romans 8:9). I know God and He is with me all the time. It's a wonderful feeling to have the God of the universe living inside me. If you are saved (born-again), then you also have God's Spirit indwelling you too. If you don't feel His presence, then it's only because you haven't learned about Him in the Scriptures. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) has written a wonderful book, freely available online, titled “MEET THE HOLY SPIRIT.” The Holy Spirit is God with us, the very Spirit of Jesus Christ.
“never believed in God as such, but if there has to be one, then let it be the one who looked after me.”

Brain Johnson makes the statement, “IF THERE HAS TO BE ONE,” speaking of God's existence. Evidently Johnson prefers that there not be a God. But there is a God, and we all have to give account to Him one day for our life (Ecclesiastes 12:14; Hebrews 9:27). The Godhead has been manifest to the world in the fleshly body and life of the Lord Jesus Christ (1st Timothy 3:16 - King James Bible). So if you want to find God, then you need to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, for He came into this world as almighty God in the flesh (John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33; Revelation 1:8). The wicked world rejects such teachings as rubbish. 1st Corinthians 1:18, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” To the unsaved, the gospel of Jesus Christ is tomfoolery; but to us who are born-again, it is the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16).
Our only priority in life ought to be to please our Creator as Revelation 4:11 teaches we were created to do, and then all of our decisions follow that priority. Everything that we do should be to the glory of God. That's a scary thought, because as human beings we do a lot of things that don't bring glory to God at all. 1st Corinthians 10:31, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” The Christian life is a constant struggle between the wicked flesh and the Holy Spirit of God in us Who wants us to do right. In sharp contrast, the ungodly who know not God are saturated with evil. Any kindness or generosity is motivated out of selfish reasons and not for the glory of God. God has no role in their decision-making process. This is why seemingly good people on the Supreme Court rule in favor of abortion, same-sex marriage and other evil agendas. They don't fear God, but they will, they will (Hebrews 10:31).
Kindly said, Brian Johnson had better get saved or he'll spend eternity in Hell. That goes for everyone! I don't condemn anyone, for God is the only Judge. I wrote this article to draw attention to a man who spends his life leading people to brag that they're all going to burn in Hell; but then he hypocritically says he wants God to look after him if such a God exists. Why should God look after a man who blasphemes and rebels against His Word? The Bible reveals God's will; yet most people, as Brian Johnson, reject the Bible as rubbish. God looks after those who HAVE FAITH in Him, which is what Hebrews 11:6 teaches. God REWARDS those who believe that He exists and DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.
Brian Johnson is living a lie if he thinks that God is going to LOOK AFTER him. Psalm 7:11 and John 3:36 warn that God is angry with Christ-rejecters and the wrath of God abideth upon their head. Psalm 9:17 warns that the wicked and all the nations that forget God shall be cast into Hell. That is where Brian Johnson is headed... HELL. He will get his wish, traveling down the highway that leadeth unto destruction (Matthew 7:13-14). Brian Johnson has already chosen his own eternal destiny and fate by rejecting Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Apart from trusting the precious Savior, there is no hope of salvation (Acts 4:10-12). Jesus Christ is the ONLY way, truth and life (John 14:6).
I hope and pray that by the time he dies, that Brian Johnson will repent toward God, believing the gospel that Jesus died, was buried and raised-up three days later; trusting upon the Son of God to forgive his sins and save his soul (Acts 10:43). God will not look after anyone who rejects Jesus as the Christ, the son of God. Instead, God will take out His vengeance upon that person with flaming fire in the pits of Hell forever and ever (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). Woe unto ACDC and all their fans! Judgment Day is coming and God is angry at the wicked every day (Psalm 7:11). Romans 5:9 warns of the wrath of God to come; our only escape is through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
