Bruce Springsteen—No Friend Of God
by David J. Stewart | April 2013
James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
Bruce Springsteen (often called “The Boss”) is one of the most famous and wealthiest singers in the world. In an interview, Springsteen says he grew up “completely brainwashed by Catholicism” (as he puts it), and also said “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” Biblically, the Roman Catholic religion is of the Devil, because they require good works and the keeping of seven sacraments to get to Heaven. The Bible plainly warns in Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
I've witnessed to many hundreds of Catholics in my life and not one has ever said that they're going to Heaven solely because of what Jesus did for them on the cross. Most aren't sure if they're going to Heaven. Most say either “I hope so” or “I think so,” based upon their sincerity and diligent effort to be a good Catholic, parent and neighbor. They're as lost as the Devil. Catholicism is a road to the Lake of Fire. It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking—LOOK TO JESUS!
Bruce Springsteen has formed his own personality cult with tens-of-millions of fans...
Bruce Springsteen brings rock and soul salvation to Vancouver
“Can you feel the spirit?” he asked, one last time. The crowd roared its answer. An evening with Bruce Springsteen remains a near-religious experience. Agnostics were converted. For true believers their faith is stronger than ever.

Springsteen has sold 65,000,000 albums in the United States and 120,000,000 albums worldwide. He has received tons of awards and nominations. Rolling Stone ranked him as the 23rd greatest artist in history. It's a big deal when any man has that kind of fame and doesn't use it for the glory of God. Springsteen is pulling on the same rope as the Devil, leading the masses of this world into a one-world religious philosophy. Contrary to popular theological opinion, there's not going to be one end time religion; but rather, all of the religious denominations will adopt a universal new age philosophy that there are many paths to the light.
Bruce Springsteen Claims To Be An “Agnostic”
Although Springsteen claims that he grew up a brainwashed Catholic, he now calls himself an “AGNOSTIC” (uncertain of all claims to knowledge; a person who doubts truth of religion). Famous singers often disassociate themselves from God because it would otherwise alienate some of their fan base. By remaining vague on their beliefs or claiming to be an atheist (like Barry Manilow), they draw the most fans. This is the way of the wicked world. In sharp contrast, each and every individual Christian believer should boldly proclaim their faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Bruce Springsteen is NOT a born-again Christian! Springsteen is a worldly success, on top of the world in fame and wealthy. The heathen world wants to believe that they are doing the right thing, even when they're obviously doing wrong. Abortion is murder, but the media remains eerily silent. No one dares speak evil of the evils of abortion; therefore, it is accepted without question. The same is true of every other evil in society: drunkenness, gambling casinos, smut magazines, feminism, divorce, et cetera.
Admittedly, Springsteen doesn't know what he believes by calling himself “agnostic.” In his songs Mr. Springsteen has “a form of religion” (2nd Timothy 3:5), but denies the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16). I'm not trying to be unkind toward Mr. Springsteen; but rather, I'm pointing out the false way of the world, which leads to Hell. The world loves to celebrate, have a good time and shirk off their problems by going to a music concert; but the Bible can't be shirked off. Bruce Springsteen's “East Street Band” are serving the Devil. In a highly publicized New York concert, Bruce Springsteen told the fans that he was there for “the ministry of Rock 'N' Roll” and for their “re-sexualization.” Springsteen admits that Rock music is a religion of sexual immorality. Admittedly his Rock music sexually charges up the audience. As Newsweek magazine advertises, the world is “GOING WILD ABOUT BRUCE!”
There's no debate that Bruce Springsteen is a fabulous musician and singer, but that's not the issue. The issue is that Mr. Springsteen has influence over hundreds-of-millions of people worldwide. Springsteen has mentioned Jesus, God, heaven, hell, devils, angels and other religious terms extensively throughout his lengthy singing career (17 albums as of 2012). Thus, Springsteen gives the impression that he has faith in God and is a believer, but he is definitely not a Biblical Christian. Springsteen, like nearly all celebrities is wishy-washy, painstaking taking efforts to stay in the middle-of-the-road concerning what he truly believes.
Springsteen's vague and wishy-washy religious content in his music appeals to nearly all faiths. Yet, it's spiritually dangerous because Springsteen and his music are widely recognized as a religious experience. As the world's churches are becoming more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy. Springsteen held a concert in Topeka, Kansas in November of 2012 and members of Pastor Fred Phelps' congregation gathered outside to protest...
Bruce Springsteen leads a rock ’n’ roll revival in KC
The Kansas City Star
By TIMOTHY FINN | November 18, 2012
That church from Topeka that preaches the blasphemy of (among other things) rock and roll exercised its freedom of speech across the street from the Sprint Center on Saturday night. But the more spiritual and evangelical expressions of the heart and soul occurred inside the arena, where for more than three hours Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band unleashed a show for the ages.

Marilyn Manson has referred to himself as a preacher and his shameful concerts as church services.
I am totally against the cruel demonstrations of the Westboro Baptist Church at soldier's funerals, et cetera. They are infamous for holding up signs at funerals which read, “Thank God for dead soldiers!” Their premise is that God's judgment is upon America because of our sins and therefore, we deserve everything that we get. As offensive as Fred Phelps is to most people, I must say that he comes a lot CLOSER to being right than the wicked American public who are embracing homosexuality, abortion and sexual perversion of every sort these days. The wicked are using the evil media to place pressure upon Americans to either show support for gay-rights or be rejected by society. Many people are cowards and fear being ostracized. If you are a genuine Christian, you will have to stand alone oftentimes in your life for God, and you will be persecuted for it (2nd Timothy 3:12).
Pastor Phelps is a staunch Calvinist, which explains his hatred against sinners. Calvinists have the wrong theological mindset that God hates sinners; but Biblically, that is not correct, “For God so loved the world” as we are taught in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God hates sin and evil, but He doesn't hate anyone. It would be utterly hypocritical for God to command Christians to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44), but then turn around and hate His own enemies. God commands us to love as He loves, unconditionally (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles titled, “On Trial Every Day” (an awesome sermon about what true love is).
Souls are not going to be reached for God with Rock 'N' Roll revivals. Springsteen's spiritualism is evil because it doesn't center around the gospel of Jesus Christ. Any attempt to lead people in a positive spiritual direction that doesn't include the gospel and the Word of God is nothing more than RELIGIOUS HUMANISM! Music is very spiritual in nature! Again, don't miss what Bruce Springsteen said about him being in “the ministry of Rock 'N' Roll.” What does his ministry of Rock music do? Springsteen's sings for the “re-sexualization” of the audience. The Bible condemns such wickedness in Colossians 3:5-6, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.” “Rock 'n' roll is 99% sex.” (John Oates)
Max Weinberg is the drummer for Bruce Springsteen's East Street Band, who's also the regular drummer on the worldly Conan O'Brien show. Some people would call Conan's show clean and innocent fun, but they desecrate everything holy and Biblical. Conan gleefully boasts in his singing that he's going to Hell when he dies. Do you think God has a good sense of humor toward Christ-rejecters who blaspheme the Bible, mock the reality of Hell and sport in every form of sexual immorality imaginable? No way! God hates it all, as I do as a child of God. I don't hate anyone, but I hate the Saturday Night Live show mentality that shamefully promotes sexual immorality, immodest clothing on women, oral sex, drunkenness, worldliness, lesbianism and the Devil's music.
Springsteen 100% Supports Sodomite Rights
Springsteen is a big supporter of sinful homosexual (gay) rights. In 2012, he lent his support to an ad campaign for gay marriage called “The Four 2012.” Springsteen noted in the ad, “I couldn't agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.” The Bible plainly warns in our text verse that friendship with the world is enmity with God. We all have to choose one or the other, there is NO MIDDLE GROUND. The Bible plainly teaches in Romans chapter one that the homosexual lifestyle is part of a progressive downward spiral into Hell and eternal damnation. Springsteen is a left-wing, liberal, Democrat, having voted for both Senator's John Kerry and Barack Obama for the U.S. Presidency. No one can vote for wickedness and be right with God.
Honestly, Christians who are taught to vote for the lesser of two evils are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Unbelievably, millions of conservative Christians in the U.S. sinned in 2012 by casting their vote for a sexually-perverted Mormon leader, Mitt Romney. The last election proved that 95% of America's churches can EASILY be led to vote for Adolf Hitler by simply making the Devil his political opponent. No Christian who walks with God and is right with Him would vote for either of these wicked men, that is, Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. If you have to choose between evils, then there is no choice to make. God says to HATE EVIL (Psalms 97:10), not to vote for it.
The Wicked Support Gay Rights Over God's Word
You'll NEVER find a Rock star who is against homosexuality. The reason is because the very nature of all Rock music is sexual immorality. Rock fans are slaves to the beat. In a highly publicized New York Rock concert, Bruce Springsteen told the fans that he was there for “the ministry of Rock 'N' Roll” and for their “re-sexualization.” It would be utter hypocrisy for a Rock star who sings the Devil's music to contradict their lifestyle by not supporting gay-rights. The same is true of immoral Hollywood actors like George Clooney, who said he won't even tell people that he's not gay, lest he offend many of his gay friends.
In a 2011 interview with GQ Clint Eastwood said: “These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don't give a f*** about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We're making a big deal out of things we shouldn't be making a deal out of. They go on and on with all this bulls*** about 'sanctity' — don't give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”
Clint Eastwood is a wicked man, who has expressed his preference for the religion of Buddhism, praising Buddha. Did you know that 600,000 American Jews have joined Buddhism? It's true! Clint Eastwood is no friend of God, nor is he a Biblical Christian in any sense. Eastwood strongly supports queers. It is God who makes a big deal about the sin of homosexuality. Romans chapter one (see verse 26) plainly exposes homosexuality as being vile (morally reprehensible). Gays are adopting children into so-called “families” (absent either a male or female role). They're not families; but rather, two queers with a child at their mercy. It is sickening for two men to live together as husband and wife (where the effeminate male takes on the role of the mother to the children). Unbelievably, Child Protection Services (CPS) approves of all this, because it's just a job to them. They do as the law dictates. While Christian parents are accused of abusing their child for feeding them healthy organic foods, Sodomites are adopting children and CPS is ok with that. I pray for God's judgment to rain down upon America and flood our wicked nation with righteousness and judgment! Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Sean Penn played the role of slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk and was awarded an Oscar for his incredible portrayal. During his acceptance speech Penn said: “I think that it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren's eyes if they continue that way of support. We've got to have equal rights for everyone.”
Julianne Moore said: “I think it's a very basic human rights issue,” Moore, who played one half of a lesbian couple in 2010's “The Kids Are Alright,” told Women's Wear Daily. “Everybody has the right to marry the person they love and be represented as a couple and family... It's something that people will look back on in years to come and say, 'I can't believe it took so long for us to recognize this.' It'll be like segregation and giving women the right to vote.”
Pink chose to set the video for her 2010 hit "Raise Your Glass" at a gay wedding. “I threw my best friend's wedding in my backyard — [she] is gay and she married her wife, and it was absolutely beautiful,” she told MTV News. “At the end of it, her mom said, 'Why can't this be legal?' and started crying. It was just the most heartbreaking thing I've ever seen, so that's why I'm doing it in my video.”
The entertainment mogul Russell Simmons has long been an ally to the LGBT community. In a 2009 Huffington Post blog written as an open letter to then NY Governor David Paterson, Simmons said: “You have recently done this in showing support for the legalization of gay marriage. History will show you are right and will we support you on this issue.” History will in fact show that homosexuals are WRONG when God casts them into the fires of Hell. Homosexuals who defend their wickedness are not Christians. It is possible that a Christian could be a homosexual, because all Christians are still sinners; however, to defend one's wickedness as not being sinful is a clear indication that an individual has never repented and is not truly a child of God. Homosexuality is a vile sin.
“I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day,” Kate Winslet told V magazine in 2011. “I love the way their brains work. Joe [her son] turns to me the other day and says, 'One day, I will have a girlfriend. But I might have a boyfriend. If I'm gay.' He's 7! And I said, 'You might have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling.' And he said, 'Which would you prefer?' And I said, 'My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn't make any difference to me.'” That is just sick, sick, sick!
Though it was revealed recently that Brad Pitt and longtime partner Angelina Jolie are now engaged (they previously said they would not get married until marriage was an option for all people), the actor has been a staunch supporter of the LGBT community. In 2009 he donated $100,000 to fighting Proposition 8, the California law which made same-sex marriage illegal in the state.
Cyndi Lauper launched her Give a Damn Campaign to raise awareness for the struggles of gay and transgender youth. “For far too long, dogma and fear have torn apart too many families,” she wrote in The Huffington Post in 2011. “It is a time when the heart must lead the way when your child shares this personal and life-changing moment with you.”
Hudson Taylor, the wrestling star and Division I wrestling coach recently launched Athlete Ally, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which aims to educate and empower straight allies in sports to speak out against homophobia and transphobia. May I say as a God-fearing Christian, gay is not ok! I am proud to be homophobic! Yes, I feel very uncomfortable around queers. I love all people and am respectful of homosexuals. I would NEVER be unkind to anyone because they have sin in their life. I view homosexuals as BROKEN, not BAD people. Biblically, homosexuality is no different than any other sins, whether it be substance abuse, adultery, drunkenness, stealing, greed, gossip, divorce, hatred or bullying someone.
Drew Barrymore stepped out to support gay marriage after the California Supreme Court's ruling to uphold Proposition 8 in 2009, saying “I am who I am because of the people who influenced me growing up, and many of them were gay. No one has any right to tell anyone what makes a family.”
In August 2011, Miley Cyrus tattooed a small “equals” sign on her middle finger, in support of same-sex marriage. She later told Glamour that the idea of not being able to marry the person you love more than anything in the world makes her “feel sick to her stomach.” Don't you think that God feels sick to His stomach over homosexuality? What do you think the word “abomination” means in Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” The sin of homosexuality makes God sick, disgusted and angry.
God reigned down fire and brimstone in His wrath to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Walt Disney's evil History Channel recently produced a show about Sodom and Gomorrah, claiming that an asteroid may have struck the cities instead. What blasphemy against the Bible!!! The Bible says that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone (lava) from heaven, as an EXAMPLE to all future generations of what would happen to the wicked, specifically homosexuals!!! (Jude 1:7). Yet, wicked people disregard the inspired Words of God and challenge the Lord's authority.
NO ONE who supports SAME-SEX marriage rights is a friend of God. James 4:4 makes that clear. Homosexuality is a sin, so says God. Corrupted ministers who claim that homosexuality is not really a sin in God's eyes are evil to the core. Beware of sinister ministers, prophets for hire, who will say anything for worldly fame and fortune. The Bible is the Word of God, not man. God forbids the atrocity of same-sex unions. There's no such thing as gay-marriage. It may be a perverted living arrangement, but don't dare call it a marriage. If same-sex marriage were permissible, then don't you think it would have existed for the past 6,000 years of history? Why all of a sudden, in this untoward generation, are gays pushing for the right to marry? It is once again (in these last days) becoming as it was in the days of Noah, when every thought of man's heart was continually evil.
James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
