Oliver Anthony Stuns Joe Rogan By Reciting the Bible

Oliver Anthony appears on the Joe Rogan podcast via The Joe Rogan Experience

In a wide-ranging interview with Joe Rogan, newly viral singer Oliver Anthony shared that he had a life-altering moment a month before achieving fame with his hit song “Rich Men North of Richmond” when he decided to dedicate his life to God.

“I’m telling you, again… I’m not anybody special, and I’m certainly not here to preach to anybody… but coming from somebody who was just in a really f—-d up place, and I used that word with discretion, but it just describes where I was,” Anthony said. “That guy found a lot of peace from [the Bible].”

After Anthony read a passage from the Bible, Rogan responded by calling it “profound.”

Anthony’s chart-topping song has resonated deeply with Americans, addressing the challenges faced by the working class and their sense of neglect by politicians in Washington, regardless of party affiliation.

Last month, Anthony found support from conservative circles, but he rejects being labeled as partisan. He aims for his message to transcend political boundaries.

Anthony shared with Rogan a passage from Proverbs 4:20-27, emphasizing its transformative impact on his life.

“And I’ll be very brief with this, I promise, but ironically, it’s Proverbs 4:20, which I thought you would like … ‘My son, pay attention to what I say, turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight. Keep them within your heart, for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.”

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it,” he continued reading. “Keep your mouth free from perversity, keep corrupt talk from your lips, let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you, give careful thoughts to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left, keep your foot from evil.'”

“That’s pretty f—–g profound,” Rogan said. Anthony explained Proverbs as “not preachy,” And “good guidance that you would want a father to give to his son.”

Anthony openly discussed his battles with mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, as well as chronic physical pain, including shooting pains in his jaw and throughout his body.

These struggles led him to a dark place, where he contemplated suicide as his only escape.

This stems from a severe head injury he sustained during a previous factory job.

“I just felt hopeless, like almost the way a child feels hopeless when you can’t find your parent or something. Like a 4-year-old who can’t find his parents, I didn’t have anything left in me,” he said.

“I just decided right then and there, I know I can’t do this anymore, but I know there are things I need to do,” he added. “I just told God, let me do it and I’ll give all this s— up. I’ll give up the weed, and I’ll quit getting drunk, and I’ll quit being so angry about things… and I’ll start over again and make Him the focus and not me.”

After implementing those changes in his life and perspective, Anthony, also known as Christopher Lunsford, revealed that he shifted his concern away from himself and began prioritizing what he considered truly important.

“We all sin, and we all do stupid things; we’re all just people. Nobody’s special or righteous,” he said. “People sometimes act like they’re special and righteous, but we’re all just the same thing. We all serve some master whether we realize it or not, so why not let it be the Master that is above all.”

During the interview, Rogan also ridiculed wealthy liberals he deemed “out of touch,” those who had criticized Anthony’s song.
