Pat Boone’s album far from Christian


As I was growing up, my thoughts of Pat Boone was one of a good, honest, sincere man of God, whose purpose was to evangelize through his talent as a songwriter-singer.

Many of us envision him as conservative, clean-cut, and soft-spoken. Yet the impression many are receiving from his new self-titled album, “Pat Boone In a Metal Mood, No More Mr. Nice Guy,” is quite the opposite.


Dressed in leather and fashioned in temporary tattoos he attempts to reproduce hit songs of famous “heavy metal” and classic “hard rock” groups into a “big-band” jazz sound. Such groups include Alice Cooper, Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Deep Purple, Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Guns N’ Roses and others.

Inside the cover, Pat Boone writes about how he came about to creating the album, but not one mention of God. When I first heard that he was going to do this album a couple of months ago, I was under the impression that he was going to change the words. He did not, which came as a disappointment. These lyrics are far from being Christian.

When we as Christians take on leadership, we walk a tighter line. We are to be the examples of Jesus Christ, for our children, for our churches, and for the world.

Ephesians 5:8, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” (NKJV)

2 Corinthians 7:14, 15, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?” (NKJV)
