Is Paul McCartney A Christian?
By David J. Stewart | April 2019
1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
No, Sir Paul McCartney is not a Christian. Only a person who has been born-again by faith in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified on the cross, buried, and bodily resurrected the third day is a genuine Christian. That is what the inspired King James Bible teaches (1st Corinthians 15:1-6). YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! (John 3:5).
In sharp contrast, Paul doesn't believe in the Gospel. If you check online concerning Paul's religious beliefs, you'll find everything from Roman Catholicism to Hinduism to atheism, none of which are Christianity. Perhaps you argue that Paul is private and doesn't share his beliefs. No, has has shared his religious beliefs, which are found all over the internet. Paul has dabbled in everything EXCEPT Biblical Christianity.
For anyone who loves the truth, you fully know that Roman Catholicism is a giant religion completely devoid of truth and God! Catholics trust in their cultish Roman Catholic Church, which teaches Sacramental Salvation (aka, the “Seven Sacraments”). You don't get to Heaven by getting water baptized, confirmed, confessing to a sinful priest, nor any other so-called “sacraments” (a term not even found in the Holy Bible). You have to have childlike faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to become a Christian, which Paul has never once testified publicly. So, no, kindly, by all indications Paul McCartney is going straight to Hell when he dies, to burn forever and ever without hope. I am not happy about that, God forbid, I am simply being very honest.
I admit that I greatly admire Paul McCartney, from a secular viewpoint. I admire his musical genius. The man is clearly a legend to anyone who knows music. I still remember as a boy hearing “Silly Little Love Songs” by Paul McCartney and Wings on the radio in the 1970's. I love music and always have. I play many different stringed instruments (pedal steel, lap steel, banjo, guitar, ukulele, bass, lute and stringed harp). I thank God for music. In my humble opinion, anyone who doesn't like rock music is either dead, weird or a liar! I can hear some sanctimonious self-righteous Christian criticizing me already. Please don't misunderstand, I am 100% against rock music, because it is the number one culprit for the sexual revolution in America. However, it is not a sin to like something. You cannot help what you like or don't like. Being a passionate person who loves music, I like ALL kinds of music!
Commander William Guy Carr (1895-1959) wrote several prolific books, exposing the sinister Satanic agenda behind the media (this article was creepy writing). The heathen world idolizes The Beatles, and in particular Paul McCartney. Jesus taught us in John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” The world loves Paul McCartney and the Beatles, because they are of the world. Paul McCartney appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Late Night Show in September of 2018. On the show, Paul admitted having sex with two prostitutes in Las Vegas when he was younger, boasting about the great time he had. Paul has no shame, no regrets, and no remorse for his sins! That is why the ungodly world loves Paul McCartney and The “Fab Four”! Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
Respectfully, that reminds me of President Donald Trump, who when asked by the media if he once committed adultery, he replied that he did and enjoyed it very much! President Trump has publicly bragged that sleeping with your friend's wives make “life worth living,” according to a new book. Psalms 36:1, “The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.” Neither Donald Trump nor Paul McCartney fear God, but they will. Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Time is running out! The world will pass away and all that is in it (1st John 2:15-17). Ecclesiastes 12:13, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
I would never condemn anyone for their sins, because it is not my place to judge sinners, and also because I am just as much a sinner as Paul McCartney. Even our dear Savior said He didn't come into the world to condemn sinners (John 3:17), but to “seek and save” the lost (Luke 19:10). Paul McCartney could get saved if he wanted to, but he loves living in sin (John 3:20), which is why he brags about committing sin on American television still today! The Word of God teaches that Satan is the god of the world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). There are many beautiful things in the world. Music is a beautiful thing, it truly is! Someone once said that the world is like an evil man who holds a saxophone in one hand, to drown out the cries of his victims that he murders with the gun in the other hand!
George Harrison's Heathen Ecumenical Religious Beliefs
I shudder when I think of where George Harrison of The Beatles may right now be burning in the fires of Hell. As a consequence of his heavy cigarette smoking in his younger years, George Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001. The poor guy was stabbed in 1999 in his home, forty times, by a nut who broke into his home in England. The crazy judge found the assailant not guilty! I was surprised when I read that! George survived with a punctured lung. Sadly, he died just two years later at the young age of 58. The Harrison family said in a statement. “He [George] often said, Everything else can wait, but the search for God cannot wait, and love one another.” Sadly, the god that George found and sang about (Hara Krishna) could not deliver his soul from the wages of sin in Hell beneath. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” When anybody dies, their family and friends nearly ALWAYS say they went to Heaven to be with God. Folks, that simply is NOT true! What saith the Scripture? John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” According to the written Word of God, George Harrison is burning in the fires of Hell with Hara Krishna!!! I say that kindly, but truthfully!
I recently read something that made me so happy, if it be true. According to biographer Bob Spitz, George Harrison became a Christian before he died. I truly do hope that George died in the Lord Jesus Christ as a born-again Christian...
GEORGE HARRISON: ‘MY SWEET LORD’
George Harrison is well known as the lead guitarist and composer/singer in history’s most successful rock group The Beatles. He wrote some of the band’s best known songs in their later years, including ‘Here Comes the Sun’, ‘Something’ and ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps.’
George is also known as a spiritual seeker and embraced Eastern Mysticism for many years during the late 1960’s and throughout the 1970’s. But this was just a part of his journey. It seems that all along he was seeking the One True God rather than just a ‘religious experience’, and George found him in the final months of his life on earth.
Author Bob Spitz wrote in his book; ‘The Beatles: The Biography’
“Later in life he [Harrison] would become a vegetarian, consult an astrologer, and devote himself to Transcendental Meditation before embracing traditional Christianity.”
When asked for the source of his statement, Spitz stated
“As for the source of George’s return to traditional Christianity, the source was the man himself, conveyed to me some months before he died.”
George’s last album was called ‘Brainwashed’. On the cover, he signed his name, followed by two little hand drawn symbols, one a Hindu symbol and the other a Christian cross. The man so well known for following Hindu teaching since the 1960’s was now affiliating himself with Jesus Christ and the Christian faith.

Only God and George know for sure where he is right now. I have my doubts. George himself never went public about becoming a Christian. It seems more plausible to me that George said some kind words about Jesus, adding Christian beliefs to his Hindu beliefs, embracing the goodness in all religions, but that is NOT Christianity. The inspired Word of God says that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to the Father, not an option, not a cute idea, not part of the way, but the ONLY WAY! You cannot trust in Hara Krishna and Jesus to be saved, you must abandon faith in one and trust the other! I seriously doubt George's conversion to Christianity.
And as far as displaying a cross, Ozzy Osbourne and all the members of Black Sabbath openly wear big cross necklaces in their concerts! That means nothing, except that they are mocking the Savior, deceiving and confusing the audience. Black Sabbath sings the song, “Paranoid,” in which Ozzy says the words, “Satan kills those he wants saved!” The song is of the Devil. The whole band is Satanic, glorify the Devil. Remember, there was a demon possessed woman in the Bible (Acts 16:16-17) who followed the apostle Paul, telling people that he was preaching the Gospel of truth. Paul didn't like what she was doing, and cast the demon out of her, which angered her pimps who were making money off of her soothsaying.
“I think people who truly can live a life in music are telling the world, ‘You can have my love, you can have my smiles. Forget the bad parts, you don’t need them. Just take the music, the goodness, because it’s the very best, and it’s the part I give most willingly.” ―George Harrison
The Beatles Never Glorified God
I typed Paul's name on Google and 161,000,000 results came back! I am not endorsing an unsaved man like Paul McCartney, God forbid. I 1st Corinthians 7:29-31, “But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.” Everywhere Paul goes he praises “ROCK N ROLL”! Ecclesiastes 7:5, “It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.” The Beatles, as talented and interesting as they are, sadly are a bunch of fools! No one is wise who lives their earthly life without glorifying their Creator. Daniel 5:23b, “the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.” Ecclesiastes 11:9, “Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.” The world falls all over each other with self-praise, honoring one another, but none of them glorify their God and Maker.
“Our society has abandoned the Bible, and is hopelessly lost to try to figure out its own problems!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a truthful quote from the needful MP3 sermon titled, "ABORTION!"
I do greatly admire Paul McCartney for taking care of his physical health. The guy is in his upper 70's and is still as healthy as can be. I have never seen Paul anything other than happy, cheerful and an encouragement to the people around him. Few Christians can rival Paul's charisma and cheer. Go figure! Why is it that a hellbound unsaved man can enjoy his life to the fullest, and make the best of every moment; while heavenbound Christians languish in depression, misery and despair? I take the good that I can from all men, and leave the bad. Paul McCartney inspires me to take better care of my health, and to be cheerful each day. I think a wise Christian can (and should) learn all they can that is good and uplifting from everyone they meet. I realize that The Beatles are the enemies of God (James 4:4), but that doesn't mean that it is a sin to admire good qualities about them.
I didn't write this article to criticize Paul McCartney, but to use his massive popularity as an opportunity to preach THE GOSPEL to thousands of people who will read this article. Paul has a staggering net worth of $1,200,000,000. But what will that all matter in the next few years when his earthly body dies, and he enters into eternity? Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Unless Paul McCartney repents (changes his mind) from his unbelief, turning to the Lord Jesus Christ by faith to be forgiven of his sins, he WILL sadly be cast into the Lake of Fire in the future! Where will Paul McCartney spend eternity? It doesn't look good for Paul. The decision is his alone to make.
John Lennon May Be in Heaven
I actually think that John Lennon may be in Heaven. In fact, I think there is a good chance. Luke 8:13, “They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.” I think John likely did get saved, but because of persecution from the world he fell away, not from salvation, but from growing to become a mature soulwinning Christian (which is what the parable of the Sower and the Seeds in Luke 8:11-15 is about). One thing is very obvious to me from reading the accounts of John Lennon's search for the truth, and that is that he was a sincere man who was hurting in his soul, and needed a mature Christian to mentor him. Did John get saved? I can only hope so, but we don't know.
I thought it was funny when I read that John Lennon watched a lot of television for many years, because he couldn't go anywhere since he was so famous, and fans bombarded him with attention. You couldn't make that stuff up! That is funny. In 1965 the Beatles had to stop touring for live concerts, because they couldn't hear themselves sing due to the screaming fans! So they went into the recording studio instead between 1965 to 1970 and made musical history. But where are they going when they die? Where is John Lennon? Where is George Harrison? Where is Ringo Starr going? Where is Paul McCartney headed in eternity?
Only Born-Again Christians Go To Heaven!
Kindly, if anyone is mad at me for daring to say that Paul McCartney is hellbound in his sins as a Christ-rejecter, then get mad at Jesus, because the Lord warned in John 14:6 that you either go through Him alone, or you DON'T GO! John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” You had better get saved yourself, or you'll be tormented with Paul in eternity. Can Paul still get saved? Of course, absolutely, but he is blinded by his massive popularity and fame. Life is more than music, sleeping around and having fun. What has Paul McCartney ever done for God? How has Paul glorified God in the least way? Tens of thousands of famous people have given the world great music, which people all love to hear, whatever particular genre they like, but what about eternity? Only a fool isn't concerned about the afterlife!
What kind of fundamentalist Baptist Bible-preacher would I be, if I withheld the truth about people that I admire? I really admire Paul McCartney, sincerely. I hesitated to even write this article, but then the Lord convicted me that I need to tell the truth at all cost, for the sake of Paul McCartney and thousands of people who will read this article. I have never made a single penny from my website ministry and never will. I do what I do for God, knowing that I will receive a full reward in Heaven. Albeit (and the Lord knows this is true), even if I knew that I wouldn't receive any heavenly rewards someday, I would still do what I am doing, because there is a cause. David said the same thing when he went out to fight Goliath, and he wasn't getting paid. 1st Samuel 17:29, “And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?” Yes, there is a great cause, fishing for the souls of men!!!
I admire Paul McCartney tremendously, not for his sinful past and ungodly influence upon the world, but for his musical genius, the way he carries himself in public, the way he genuinely interacts with people, his healthy lifestyle, and that he keeps going. Yet, what doth it profit a man if he gain the whole but lose his own soul? Paul McCartney has never glorified God in the least way. Of the hundreds of massively successful songs that he has written and sang impeccably, not one glorifies the Savior! The Beatles' incredibly popular song, “Let It Be,” praises “Mother Mary” of Roman Catholicism, not the Savior Who bled and died for Paul's sins! Mary is nothing! All normal people in their right mind dearly love their mother, and it appeals to human reasoning that Jesus' earthly mother, Mary, would have considerable influence over His opinion and decisions. False prophets used that idea to create a false religion, which crept its way into Roman Catholicism in the early centuries, a damned religion that honors Mary instead of the only begotten SON OF GOD! God is Jesus' ONLY biological father (i.e., Jesus was virgin born). Joseph was Jesus' dad who raised Him, but not His biological father!
Famous, loving, sincere, nice and generous people go to Hell every single day! Frank and Barbara Sinatra started a foundation to help abused children. That was a nice gesture, it really was, but charity cannot buy a person into Heaven! From reading Frank's inflammatory comments in a 1963 Playboy interview about religion, it is obvious that he wasn't a Christian. Like many unsaved people, Frank Sinatra only saw what he wanted to see, demonizing all of Christianity because of the sinfulness of humanity. It matters not how famous, loving, kind, healthy, generous, rich, fun, talented, religious, cool, practical, likable or sorry a person is, they cannot go to Heaven unless they believe the Gospel. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! (John 3:5). If Paul McCartney does go to Hell, it won't be because God sent him there, but only because God is honoring his choice to go there, by rejecting God's free gift of eternal life through faith alone in His only begotten Son!
Dear reader, this life will be over before you know it. Paul McCartney was born in 1942! Wow! I was born in 1967 and I feel old! Paul is now 77 years old. Knowing Paul, the way he stays active and eats well, he'll likely live to well in his 90's, but we don't know what a day may bring. Eternal life is a free gift from God. It is free because God sent His only begotten Son into the world, to die on the cross to pay a debt He did not owe, because we owe a debt of sin that we simply cannot pay. All the religious dedication and good deeds, philanthropy, diligent effort to clean up deadly land mines in war stricken nations, and human goodness, cannot merit a person Heaven. John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
John 20:31, “But these are
written, that ye might believe that Jesus
is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might
have life through his name.”
END OF ARTICLE
NOBODY IS LAUGHING IN HELL!!!
Did you know that you don't have to ask Jesus to save you? God has already told you how to be saved, that is, by simply believing that His Son died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and raised up from the dead three days later. Christ raised up from the dead, which means that God the Father accepted His Son's payment for the sins of the world. Christ suffered on the cross so that we wouldn't have to suffer in a literal Hell forever. Amen! You don't have to bow your head to be saved. You don't have to pray. You don't have to do anything except believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and make that your hope for Heaven!
of the child of God is that he loves everybody!”
