Elon Musk agrees that West is doomed without Christianity

Entrepreneur Elon Musk recently suggested that he agrees with the assertion that Western civilization is doomed without Christianity.

Nzube Olisaebuka Udezue, a British rapper also known as Zuby, posted on X that he believes “the West is absolutely screwed if it loses Christianity.” Udezue, who was born in London to Nigerian parents, said removing Christianity from Western culture is like “removing the foundations of a building but pridefully expecting it to remain standing forever .. all while enemies both inside and outside are trying to knock the building over.”

He went on to compare the West’s historically dominant religion to its “immune system” and said the presence of a Christian majority in the West has served as “a form of herd immunity” that has benefited Christians and non-Christians alike. “You can’t just have a cultural and moral vacuum,” he said. “It goes against the laws of human nature.”

Udezue’s initial tweet, which drew 1.7 million views and 28,000 likes, also prompted a response from Musk, who wrote: “I think you’re probably right.”

Musk has touched on his views of Christianity and religion before but has stopped short of professing faith in Jesus . During an interview with the popular Christian satire site The Babylon Bee in 2021, Musk was asked if he would accept Jesus Christ as his “personal Lord and Savior.”

Musk, who was baptized and received communion while growing up in South Africa, replied that he admires “the principles that Jesus advocated,” such as “treating people as you wish to be treated.”

“Things like turn the other cheek are very important, as opposed to an eye for an eye,” he said. “An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind. As Einstein would say, ‘I believe in the God of Spinoza.’ But hey, if Jesus is saving people, I mean, I won’t stand in his way. Sure, I’ll be saved. Why not?”
