Kurt Cobain, believer?

March 27, 2013 Leave a comment

I attended the very-sheltered campus of Pensacola Christian College in 1994, and I must confess that when Kurt Cobain died that year, my initial reaction consisted of three words.

“Who’s Kurt Cobain?”

Of course, now I know who he was. I’ve heard a few of his songs from his band Nirvana. Most notably “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are”.

In the opinion of many very fundamental Christians, Cobain is likely now screaming in hell, writhing around in eternal fire.

A friend who read a detailed biography on Cobain tells me that in the book, it reports that when Cobain was about 16, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior.

I did not know this, but it begs the question: where is he now?

For me, the answer is simple: if Cobain’s profession was genuine, then he’s in heaven. If that’s the case, I imagine he’s wishing that he could’ve lived much longer than 27 and could’ve made more music.

Pure speculation on my part. Overall, I hope he’s much happier now than he was when he was alive.
