Gene Simmons' Jewish Faith Won't Get Him Into Heaven

Jeremiah 17:9-11, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.”

One of the most infamous Rock music bands is KISS, formed in 1973 in New York city. Unbelievably, the band is still performing live concerts in December of 2023, but have announced that this is their final tour. The average Baptist church doesn't last 50 years! That is so sad. Gene Simmons (age 74) and Paul Stanley (age 71) are the only two original remaining band members. As a hobby, I like to follow the lives and religious beliefs of famous people. Gene Simmons has lived a very wicked life of chasing women and blasphemy against God (Hebrews 13:4). Gene's real Jewish name is Chaim Witz (born August 25, 1949). He changed his own name early in his music career because he didn't feel comfortable with his unamerican sounded Jewish name.

Gene Simmons of KISS

I did some research online to glean some quotes from Simmons about his religious beliefs:
“I think Christians are wrong. They're wrong because you're not judged by your actions, you're judged by your beliefs, which is to say that if you're Hitler and right before you die, you say, 'Jesus, I'm sorry,' you get a better chance of going to heaven than the millions of people you killed.” —Gene Simmons of the band KISS; Esquire, “Gene Simmons: What I've Learned
Kindly said, Gene Simmons is ignorant of the Scripture. Telling Jesus that you are sorry is NOT the way to get to Heaven. Judas was sorry for betraying Jesus (Matthew 27:3). Judas even returned the 30 pieces of silver. But Judas still went to Hell to burn forever. The reason why is because He never put his trust in Jesus Christ as His personal Savior. Being sorry doesn't produce the new birth, placing your faith in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day does (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

As far as we know, Adolf Hitler never received Jesus Christ and went to Hell when he purportedly commit suicide in 1945. But if Hitler had come to God by faith as a guilty sinner, trusting Christ alone and what He did through Calvary's cross to pay his massive debt of sin, God would have saved Adolf Hitler. Gene Simmons says he has a problem with that, because the evildoer gets away with his crimes. But dear reader, everyone is a dirty guilty sinner!

In fact, in God's holy sight you are just as guilty as Adolf Hitler. James 2:10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.” Gene Simmons has publicly boasted of having sexual relations with several thousands of women throughout his 50 years of being a Rock star idol. In God's sight that is just as heinous and wicked as Adolf Hitler murdering millions of people. You just read the Holy Bible for yourself! The same God who forbids committing murder, also forbids committing fornication and adultery (Hebrews 13:4; 1st Corinthians 6:9-10; Colossians 3:5-6; Matthew 5:28). I am not condemning Gene Simmons, for I am just as much a guilty sinner as he is, and so are you dear friend.

Gene Simmons is making the same fatal error as the Pharisees who went up to the temple to pray. He looked down his long Pharisaical nose upon the publican sinner next to him, and esteemed himself as being self-righteous in comparison. ...
Luke 18:9-14, “And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Gene Simmons esteems himself as a good man in comparison to Adolf Hitler, but in God's sight he is just as wicked and guilty. Don't judge someone because they sin differently than you do! Like it or not, when a sinner comes to God by faith in His only begotten Son, Jesus, all of that person's sins are forever washed away (1st Corinthians 6:11; Revelation 1:5). The eternal slate is wiped clean. This is God's imputed righteousness (Romans 4:4-7; Romans 10:3-4; Philippians 3:9).

Being Jewish Cannot Produce The New Birth Required To Get To Heaven

John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Being born-again is NOT optional if you want to spend eternity with Jesus and have eternal life. It is mandatory!

Read what Gene Simmons said:
“I’m Jewish, and Jews believe that in order to get to heaven, one must do the right thing. It’s not what you believe, it’s what you do. In other words, love thy neighbour as thyself.” —Gene Simmons of the band KISS; LouderSound, “The Gospel According To Gene Simmons
What saith the Scripture? ...
Mark 7:7-13, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. 
Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”
Galatians 5:4, ”Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.”
The inspired Word of God says that you can only be saved be trusting upon what Jesus Christ has already DONE to pay for your sins through Calvary's cross. You cannot be saved by DOING anything! When some people asked Jesus what “works” to do to get saved, He told them to BELIEVE ON HIM! John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” 'Tis DONE not DO, the great transaction is DONE! It is DO TRUSTERS who get to Heaven, and not DO GOODERS!!!

I don't care if you are 100% biologically Jewish (which no one is), that won't get you to Heaven friend. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!!!

Gene Simmons Is Effectively An Atheist Jew

Read what Simmons said after being asked the following question...
“What’s your belief system in what happens when you die? 

I’m okay if there’s a heaven and a God. I’m okay with it. I’m also okay if there’s nothing. What do you lean towards? I lean towards nothing. My question is: if we get an afterlife, do mosquitoes? Maybe my mother’s sort of wise statement about every day above ground is a good day, and that’s it.” —Gene Simmons of the band KISS; LouderSound, “Gene Simmons Interview
Simmons said he leans toward NOTHING! He thinks when we die, that's it, there's NOTHING! That is atheism! I'd expect to hear such blasphemy coming from the mouth of a wicked man who has spent his life as a whoremonger, railer and blasphemer of God (2nd Timothy 3:1-7). In concert, Simmons (painted up as the self-proclaimed “demon”) spits broken packets of fake blood from his mouth all over the stage, sticking out and wagging his infamous extra long tongue at God as he gazes upward toward Heaven. Woe be unto that ungodly man for rejecting Jesus Christ as his Savior (John 3:36; Psalms 7:11; Isaiah 13:11).

The inspired Holy Bible teaches that both Christians and unbelievers will be judged according to our works. The difference is whether you will be judged by your works as a redeemed child of God (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11), or as a condemned child of the Devil (Revelation 20:11-15). As believers we will be rewarded according to our works (1st Corinthians 3:8-15; Revelation 14:13); but unbelievers will be punished according to their works (2nd Corinthians 11:15; Revelation 20:12-13).

I heard Paul Stanley of KISS say that they've been preaching Rock n' Roll for 50 years! He said it himself. What an indictment against himself! Paul Stanley said it exactly right. I heard lead guitarist Dave Mustaine of the band MEGADETH call his latest album “an offering.” Yes, it is an offering to Satan, and the audience are the sacrifice to be laid upon the Satanic altar. Rock stars so often PREACH a wicked message of immoral sex, rebellion, substance abuse, lust, committing crime, false religion and worldliness!

My heart goes out to anyone who has been so deceived by the Devil, that they think being Jewish and doing good works will get them to Heaven. Moreover, Simmons has publicly said that he leans toward thinking there's nothing after we die. For his own sake, I sure hope he is right. Good luck Gene! But I am not going to take such an eternal risk. I put my trust in the precious name of Jesus when I was 13 years old in 1980. I knew I was a guilty sinner, and by faith I received Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for my sins, believing that He was buried, but then ressurected from the dead three days later for my justification. That is the Gospel according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4). BELIEVE IT, Oh sinner, and you will be saved too (Romans 1:16; 1st Corinthians 1:21).

Please understand that I never write blogs to be mean, unkind or tear down people, God forbid. I love everyone, God knows my heart. As a Bible-believing Christian and a fundamentalist Baptist preacher, my heart's intent is only to help people by preaching THE TRUTH. I don't want you to end up suffering in the abyss of Hell forever, as will Gene Simmons (Chaim Witz) if he doesn't repent of his unbelief and instead believe the Gospel.

May I say, I like Gene Simmons as a person. I look beyond his sins and I see a human being. Gene's mother was a good woman from all that I have read and heard about her. She was 14 years old in a German camp during the holocaust, where her family were murdered. When Gene and his mother immigrated to America from Israel, neither could speak a word of English. Gene had to learn to speak English. His father abandoned them when Gene was only age 6. Life is not fair. Gene's mother had to work to pay all the bills.

A year later Gene worked two paper delivery routes to help pay the bills. Out of necessity he developed a strong work ethic at a very young age, which has been his driving force throughout his musical and business career. Gene Simmons is as much a business man as he is a rock star. I heard Gene say once that being a rock star is 10% performance and 90% public image. So true! When Gene became a millionaire, he bought his father a house and sent him money every month to take care of him, which is a good son; yet, he never had a relationship with his father after being abandoned by him as a boy. I admire Gene for taking care of his father, honoring him as the Bible commands. I think Gene is a good guy, despite his sinful life and having served the Devil for 50 years in the rock music industry. Sadly, his time is running out before he faces His Creator (Hebrews 9:27). My hope is that God will convict Gene's heart that he might be saved while he still can.

Mark 1:14-15, “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” That is, think differently from trusting in your own DEAD WORKS (Hebrews 6:1) and instead BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31). There is no other way to get to Heaven, than through faith alone in the precious name of Jesus (Acts 4:10-12). Thank you for reading.
