Clearly, the Beatles’ album was dedicated to Satanist Aleister Crowley. It was released 20 years, nearly to the day, after Crowley’s death in 1947, and its title song began with the lyrics, “It was twenty years ago today…” The album’s cover featured a picture of Crowley.
One month after the album’s release, the Beatles shocked the world by announcing, publicly, that they were regularly taking LSD. Beatle member Paul McCartney, in an interview with Life magazine said, “LSD opened my eyes. We only use one-tenth of our brain.” They also publicly called for the legalization of marijuana.
Aliester Crowley is without a doubt, the main spiritual “teacher” of rock music. Crowley’s mission in life was to destroy Jesus Christ and Christianity, while exalting sex perversion, drugs, magick and Satan.
Aliester Crowley spews his hatred of Jesus Christ in The World’s Tragedy:
“I do not wish to argue that the doctrines of Jesus, they and they alone, have degraded the world to it’s present condition. I take it that Christianity is not only the cause but the symptom of slavery.” (Aleister Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. XXXIX)”That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honor they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I HATE and will DESTROY.” (Aleister Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. XXXI)
In the introduction of The World’s Tragedy, Israel Regardie says:
“This long, almost epic poem is one of the most bitter and vicious diatribes against Christianity that I have ever read.”Crowley’s most famous teaching, “Do what thou wilt shalt be the whole of the law” became the “mantra” of the 60’s revolution of drugs, sexual perversion and anti-Christianity. “Do your own thing” — “If it feels good do it”.
THE BEATLES & CROWLEY
According to The All Music Guide, The Beatle’s Sgt. Pepper album, “will forever be known as the recording that changed rock & roll”. Time magazine said, Sgt Pepper’s was “drenched in drugs.” (Time, Sept. 26, 1967, p.62)
The cover of Sgt. Pepper’s showed the Beatles with a background of, according to Ringo Starr, people “we like and admire” (Hit Parade, Oct. 1976, p.14). Paul McCartney said of Sgt. Pepper’s cover, “. . . we were going to have photos on the wall of all our HEROS . . .” (Musician, Special Collectors Edition, – Beatles and Rolling Stones, 1988, p.12)
One of the Beatle’s heros included on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s was — the infamous Aliester Crowley! Most people, especially in 1967, did not even know who Crowley was — but the Beatles certainly did.
The Bealtes apparently took Crowley’s teaching very serious — Beatle John Lennon, in an interview, says the “whole idea of the Beatles” was — Crowley’s infamous “do what thou wilt”:
“The whole Beatle idea was to do what you want, right? To take your own responsibilty, do what you want and try not to harm other people, right? DO WHAT THOU WILST, as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody. . .” (“The Playboy Interviews with John Lennon & Yoko Ono”, by David Sheff & G. Barry Golson, p. 61)”They’re COMPLETELY ANTI-CHRIST. I mean, I am anti-Christ as well, but they’re so anti-Christ they shock me which isn’t an easy thing.”
Derek Taylor, Press Officer for the Beatles (Saturday Evening Post, Aug. 8, 1964).
“Jesus El Pifico, a garlic-eating, stinking little yellow, greasy fascist bastard catholic spaniard.”
(John Lennon, A Spaniard in the Works, p.14)
“Christianity will go, it will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that. I’m right and will be proved right. . . .We’re more popular than Jesus now.”
John Lennon (San Francisco Chronicle, April 13, 1966, p.26)
John Lennon is believed to have “sold” his soul or made a deal with the devil. There is even a book about it called The Lennon Prophecy. The Beatles channeled evil spirits like those in his inner circle revealed. John Lennon once said “When the real music comes to me it has nothing to do with ’cause I’m just a channel. It’s given to me and I transcribe it like a channel.” He once referred to himself as a hollow temple in which the spirits would inhabit him then leave to be inhabited by another. When asked why The Beatles were so successful he said himself “I sold my soul to the devil” (Ray Coleman, Lennon, McGraw-hill)
Ono said “… It was as if several people gathered around a table and a ghost appeared. It was that kind of communication. They [The Beatles] were like mediums. They weren’t conscious of all they were saying, but it was coming through them” (YOKO ONO, The Playboy Interviews with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Berkeley, 1982).
Lennon said: “It’s amazing that it [the tune to ‘In My Life’] just came to me in a dream. That’s why I don’t profess to know anything. I think music is very mystical” (John Lennon, “The Beatles Come Together,” Reader’s Digest, March 2001).

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
