Guitar Hero is Evil
By David J. Stewart
"Let us not be desirous of vain glory..." —Galatians 5:26
The Guitar Hero video game series is nothing less than a means of self-glorification and is of the Devil. Twenty-one million units have already been sold. The original Guitar Hero was released on the PlayStation 2 in November of 2005 and was developed by the company Harmonix. The game comes with a controller, which allows the player to simulate playing Rock 'N' Roll music on TV, to the tune of their favorite Rock band. In effect, it makes an instant Rock star out of the player, with screaming fans, flashing lights and all the demonic influences of Rock 'N' Roll.
Rock 'N' Roll is demonic, which many of the performers themselves admit, such as David Bowie...
"Rock has always been THE DEVIL'S MUSIC. . ." (Rolling Stone, Feb. 12, 1976)
It was John Lennon from The Beatles who said...
"I've sold my soul to the DEVIL." (Ray Coleman, Lennon, p.256)
Rock 'N' Roll is a religion of immoral sex. It was John Oates, of Hall and Oates, who stated...
"Rock 'n' roll is 99% sex."
The very term "Rock 'N' Roll was started in the 1950's by a sex-perverted disk jockey from Ohio named Alan Freed. Tragically, most young people today refuse to consider the spiritual, mental and physical evils associated with Rock music. A book could be written exposing such evils, and many have. Singer, John Denver, once stated: "Rock music is a greater influence over the souls of men than primitive Christianity." In the sense that Rock Music is much more appealing to the carnal sin-nature than Christianity, he is correct. Thus, Guitar Hero is extremely dangerous to teens.
Satan wants to corrupt young people's minds, to blind them from the reality, i.e., the truth, that is found only in Jesus Christ... "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). 2nd Corinthians 4:4 states, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." Satan's goal is to keep young people in the dark concerning the Truth of God's Word—which the Devil accomplishes through heathen education, worldly philosophies, false religion, occultism, and the demonic influences of Rock 'N' Roll.
Young people who idolize Rock 'N' Roll singers, and get caught up into demonic games such as Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero 2, or Guitar Hero 3 are committing IDOLATRY. The God of the Bible is a jealous God and will not share His glory with another... "I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another..." God commands in Exodus 20:3, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Rocker Frank Zappa (who discovered the awful truth December 4, 1993 the moment he died) arrogantly boasted...
"I'm the Devil's advocate. We have our own worshippers who are called 'groupies.' Girls will give their bodies to musicians as you would give a sacrifice to a god." (Peters Brothers, What About Christian Rock, pg. 17)
How do you think God feels when young girls, whom God has commanded not to commit adultery (Exodus 20:14), yield their bodies to these Rock star pigs in sexual immorality? God is angry! Rock 'N' Roll music is a culture, a dirty cut-throat business, and the rottenness of society. Rock music is synonymous with immoral sex, rebellion against God, substance abuse, disobedience to parents, ingratitude, feminism, sinful pride, selfishness, and many other sins. It was the British Invasion of the 1960's that boosted sexual immorality in the United States like never before. As a result, unwanted pregnancies surged in American and the abortion industry was formed in 1972. Rock 'N' Roll promotes a demonic lifestyle of fornication, rebellion, bad attitudes, substance abuse, homosexuality, bizarre behavior, disdain for authority, suicide, New Age, occultism, Satanism, and every form of immoral filth imaginable. Woe unto America and England!
Guitar Hero is of the Devil
Self-glorification is a sin. Modern American society has become so rotten that everything nowadays is centered around SELF. TV commercials today are saturated with an appeal to societies' selfishness and desire for self-glorification. 2nd Corinthians 10:5 states, "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." This Scripture is diametrically opposed to Rock 'N' Roll, which exalteth itself against the knowledge of God. Rock music of every form is sinful.
Satan fully knows that music is a powerful medium through which people can be influenced. There is nothing any more spiritually destructive today than Rock, Rap, House, Goth and commercialized Country music. CMT (Country Music Television) leads the way in sexual lasciviousness, smut and indecency. Satan has a bid for your child.
Sexual perversion is everywhere nowadays. I saw an M & M candy commercial the other day on TV, where a female MNM was lying on her back with her legs lifted and open. This is the sicko American society today, reminiscent of Genesis 6:5... "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." The Guitar Hero series promotes indecency, immoral sex, Satanism, rebellion against God, self-glorification, and every other form of wickedness that is synonymous with Rock music.
It's the same people in society today who scoff at the notion that Rock music is evil, who have no qualms with abortion, homosexuality, escort services (legalized prostitution), immodest dress, booze and gambling. Rock music is straight from the pits of Hell, and so is today's Country music and Rap music. The entire music industry is saturated with immorality, an acceptance of homosexuality, and a sinful silence about the evils of abortion, et cetera. In sharp contrast, the Bible teaches that we are to bring into captivity "every thought" unto OBEDIENCE TO JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ has no place in today's vile music industry.
The Root of All Evil
Ephesians 5:19 states, "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord." The Bible teaches that we ought to make our own melodies in our hearts to the Lord. There is nothing in the Bible that suggests that we pay other people to sing for us, which is exactly what the entire music industry is today. 1st Timothy 6:10 tells us that the "love of money" is the ROOT OF ALL EVIL. This explains why Rock stars, like Madonna, strip naked for evil men to lust upon (Matthew 5:28). It's all about money. Guitar Hero is all about making money, at the expense of your child's morality and values.
You can't even watch the news anymore on TV without seeing and hearing some Rock 'N' Roll singer being glorified. The media praises such vile degenerates of society who seek self-glory, spit in God's face, have loose morals, sell their souls for fame and fortune, promote Communism, defile their bodies in sexual immorality and corrupt societies youth. Lead singer of the Rock band KISS, Gene Simmons, has publicly boasted of having fornicated with 4,600 women throughout his vile career. His website even has a list of women waiting to go out with him. This is the primary nature of Rock, Goth, Rap and Country music... immoral sex and more immoral sex.
A "hero" is defined as one who saves another's life. They should called the game "Guitar Idol," because that's what it really is. The appeal of Guitar Hero is to teenagers... to instantly make them into gods... a virtual experience... with fans screaming and adoring them on stage... living the moment... playing the part... while being mesmerized by the Devil's music. The deplorable Rock band Foreigner has a song titled, Juke Box Hero, which appeals to the desire of youth who have "stars in their eyes" to become a Rock star. The hardcore Satanic band, AC/DC, has a song titled, It's A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock And Roll. Over and over throughout the Rock music archives, we find a common theme of desiring to "make it to the top" and to become a "Rock star." This is self-idolatry.
Rock music is a highly contagious spiritual disease that rots the soul. It is more deadly than Bubonic Plague. Young people who are exposed to Rock and Roll are captivated by it's alluring effect, not fully realizing it's dangers. Rock 'N' Roll goes far beyond being mere music—it is rebellion against God, a vile lifestyle, a pattern of liberal thought, a tool of the New World Order, a weapon of Communism, a road to sexual immorality, a life of selfishness, and a path to damnation.
Honestly speaking, there are NO "heroes" in the Rock 'N' Roll business, only fools.
