Coldplay the documentary with pictures and videos (Part 3)

Coldplay Max Masters – Part 4 of 7

In Rolling Stone interview in the summer of 2008, “The Jesus of Uncool” Lead Vocals Chris Martin was quoted as saying, “I grew up with the prospect of heaven and hell looming ever large. What I grew up with was, if you even think about boobs, you’re going to hell. It was drilled in: These things are wrong.”

Implying he grew up in a rigid Christian household, Chris at one time feared if he was gay, he would be in trouble. Eventually he realized it wouldn’t matter his sexual identity and was ultimately “swayed by boobs” noting they are “fantastic.” (Rolling Stone: The Jesus of Uncool)

Today, Martin doesn’t practice traditional religion but by evidence of lifestyle falls in line with secular humanism. Organizations like Make Trade Fair and Amnesty International are humanist organizations which like many faith-based and other secular groups are in the business of advocating inalienable rights to the human race.

Martin has been known to use Yoga to relax and meditate. Yoga has its roots in Eastern religion. In addition, he has been admitted to seeing a hypnotist to embolden himself on stage. Chris Martin’s natural demeanor is introverted and shy.

In an interview with Irish online magazine Independent.ie, when asked if he was rediscovered God based on Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends spiritual content. Martin responded that he was still trying to figure out who “he or she or it is,” admitting he doesn’t know who is right, whether it is, “Jesus, Allah, Mohammad or Zeus Finally in a text message to the magazine’s interviewer, Chris Martin wrote that he is “Alltheist” a word he made up meaning “he believes in everything.”

______

Chris Martin revealed in his interview with Howard Stern that he was rasied an evangelical Christian but he has left the church. I believe that many words that he puts in his songs today are generated from the deep seated Christian beliefs from his childhood that find their way out in his life. His belief in being generous with charities, and the fact Coldplay’s songs  deal so much with death and the search for meaning and purpose of life (similar to Solomon’s search in Ecclesiastes), that our actions are being watched, and Chris describes different ways God tries to reveal himself to us, and many songs deal with trying to find a way to an afterlife and heaven, and he stills uses Christian terms like being “blessed” and “grateful.”

Up to this point many people may be saying that this is all based on some pretty flimsy evidence. However, one of the most revealing things came out when Chris wrote the song “Viva La Vida.” He had previously said he left Christianity because of the biblical view of eternal damnation but what does Chris do with the evil king in the song “Viva La Vida?”  Q Magazine asked Chris Martin about the lyric in this song “I know Saint Peter won’t call my name.” Martin said,  “It’s about…You’re not on the list… Its always fascinated me that idea of finishing your life and then being analyzed on it…That is the most frightening thing you could possibly say to somebody. Eternal damnation.  I know it. It’s mildly terrifying to me. And this is serious.”

Maybe we have heard the last of this journey from Chris?
