The Men Who Rejected Jesus Christ

by David J. Stewart

I want to share with you something said by one of the wealthiest entertainers in the world...

"One time, I got on my tour bus after a gig and we drove for seven or eight hours. We stopped at a truck stop in the early hours of the morning for a cup of coffee. We were out in the middle of nowhere. And this guy walks up to me and gives me one of these leaflets: "Jesus saves." And I say to the guy, "Where did you come from? There's nothing for miles and miles around here." He says, "I've been following you all night." I says, "You been following the bus all night just to give me this fu%#**! piece of paper? You don't want to go a church, my friend. You want to go see a fu%#**! psychiatrist."

-Ozzy Osborne (Source -interview, Ozzy Meets Marilyn Manson, 1997)

It doesn't surprise me so much that a secular entertainer would reject a Gospel tract, but what really impressed upon my heart was the fact that a soulwinner had followed behind a tour bus all night simply to witness to Mr. Osborne.  What Ozzy Osborne considers insane was nothing less than the love of God working in the heart of one of God's children.  Ozzy's heart is so cold towards God that he actually told someone who cared about him to go see a psychiatrist.  I guess that shouldn't be too surprising considering that Mr. Osborne is famous for biting the head off in live bat.  Who needs to go see a psychiatrist?

You know, if someone followed behind me all night to share their beliefs with we, I would be moved by that.  Even if I totally disagreed with the person, I'd at least thank the person for caring about me.  Out of the words of Ozzy Osborne's own mouth, he condemns himself.  Ozzy admits openly that he rejected the opportunity to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour.  Ozzy didn't just tell the man to go away, he cursed that little piece of paper that read "Jesus Saves".  Mr. Osborne said, "You been following the bus all night just to give me this fu%#**! piece of paper?"  We'll Mr. Osborne, that fu%#**! piece of paper was the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Furthermore, Ozzy Osborne remembers exactly what the title of that little piece of paper was...JESUS SAVES!

"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:" -2nd Thessalonians 1:8

Ozzy Osborne KNOWS the truth, but he has willingly rejected it.  According to the above Scripture, hell awaits Mr. Osborne and all others who obey NOT the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Though Mr. Osborne denies being a Satanist, his music is certainly Satanic.  Oddly enough, Ozzy is famed for using Satanic imagery throughout his music and performances, yet claims he doesn't believe in hell...

"I don't believe there's a heaven upstairs and a hell downstairs. I think we've got both hell and heaven here on earth. It's all here for us."

-Ozzy Osborne (Source -interview, Ozzy Meets Marilyn Manson, 1997)

Ozzy admits that about 25 parents have sued him for the suicide deaths of their children, alleging his music as the cause (Source -interview, Ozzy Meets Marilyn Manson, 1997).  Mr. Osborne defends his music and so does the Supreme Court on the basis of Free Speech.  In response to the accusations against Mr. Osborne, fellow entertainer Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) said...

"I've always said that if someone is stupid enough to want to kill themselves over music, then that's what they deserve. That's one less stupid person in the world."

-Marilyn Manson (Source -interview, Ozzy Meets Marilyn Manson, 1997)

Warner eerily sounds like Ebenezer Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol," when he proclaimed..."Then let the poor perish and decrease the surface population."  Ozzy Osborne and Marilyn Manson are icons to young and middle-aged rockers around the world, revered literally to the point of worship in many cases.  Brian Warner (Manson) claims that he attended a Christian school while growing up (which prohibited him from listening to such bands as Queen, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath).  Warner actually attributes his Satanic music career to having been denied such music as a child.  In short, he blames Christians.

Though Brian Warner's claims might seem logical to some, they are simply excuses and malicious attacks against God and the church.  The bottom line is Brian Warner is a bitter man against God.  Just as Ozzy Osborne, Brian Warner is without God...

Rock star, Marilyn Manson, proudly boasts:

"Hopefully, Iíll be remembered as the person who brought an end to Christianity."

Please read The Truth About Marilyn Manson (real name, Brian Warner)

Ozzy Osborne and Marilyn Manson are NOT just men without Jesus Christ, they are also men who have deliberately rejected Jesus Christ.  Many of their lyrics mock the Word of God and Jesus Christ.  Ozzy is also famed as the former lead singer of the Satanic band, Black Sabbath.  In one of the more popular songs of Black Sabbath, Iron Man, Ozzy Osborne personifies Satan as the "Iron Man," proclaiming that he "kills those he wants saved."  For Ozzy Osborne to deny any belief in heaven or hell and claim not to be a Satanist is simply absurd.  Both of the men presented in this article are in desperate need of salvation, but more than likely they will both burn in hell-fire due to the stubborn rebellion and hardness of their hearts against the truth of God's Word.  God will NOT be mocked, a man will reap what he sows (Galatians 6:7).  Both of these wicked men can still be forgiven and saved, but they MUST come to God in repentance.  God will surely receive them if they'll only repent of their unrighteousness and come to the Saviour in faith.  ONLY through Jesus Christ can anyone go to heaven.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6

How about you my friend...have your ever been born again?  I plead with you not to be foolish like Osborne and Manson...they are hellbound.  If you'd like to know for certain that you are going to heaven when you die, then please click on the link below.
