England Dan's Bahá'í Faith Couldn't Save Him From Hell
By David J. Stewart | July 2012 | Updated February 2015
Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
As a Bible-believing, born-again, believer in Jesus Christ, I am very concerned about the souls of OTHERS. When I hear about a famous celebrity dying, I am naturally curious what that person believed. What was their hope for Heaven? Did they have any faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ?
I found this comment on YouTube about Dan Seals made by one of his fans...
“Awesome Job guys. I mean WOW you sound just like them. I'm sure Dan seals is smiling down from heaven right now my friends. Keep playing these awesome tunes from a time when Music was REAL and had heart.”

Is Dan Seals smiling down from Heaven? Sadly, Dan Seals was a member of the Baha'i faith, which does not recognize Jesus as the Christ, the only begotten Son of God . . .
“There was a contemplative side to him as well. Dan Seals was a Baha’i, a member of a faith that believes in religious tolerance and in the spiritual unity of mankind.”

Does the Bahá'í faith teach that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven? No, they don't. In fact, they are Christ-rejecters! According to the Bahá'í faith, no one can claim exclusive rights to salvation. The false religion adamantly rejects all forms of religious prejudice, which means they totally reject the Words of God in the Bible. Bahá'í is a New World Order religion, as you'll see further in a moment.
I have often been surprised to find out who is saved. I'm not generally surprised who isn't saved, because nearly all people aren't saved according to the Bible (Matthew 7:13-14). I dare say 0.005% (1 in 200 people) of the population are saved according to the Bible. As simple and free as salvation truly is, 2nd Corinthians 4:4 says that Satan blinds the minds of those who believe not, “lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
Please understand that I am not judging anyone. I am a big sinner just like anyone else. I have always enjoyed Dan Seals music and admire his incredibly awesome voice. I grew up listening to England Dan and John Ford Coley on the radio. Dan Seals sings one of my favorite songs called, “God Must Be A Cowboy At Heart.” It breaks my heart to think that Mr. Seals went to Hell forever. Perhaps you ask what makes me think that Dan Seals is in Hell. It is very simple my friend, the Holy Bible teaches in John 3:5-7 that unless a man is born-again he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Jesus plainly stated in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Acts 4:10-12 plainly teaches that salvation cannot be found in any other name than the precious name of JESUS CHRIST!!!
The Baha'i Religion is Satanic!
Baha'is recognize Buddha, Zoroaster, Muhammad, Krishna and other religious figures as being equal with the Lord Jesus Christ. According to the Holy Bible, only Jesus Christ came into the world as the manifestation of God the Father (1st Timothy 3:16 - King James Bible). Muhammad, Bahá'u'lláh, Zoroaster, Buddha and all the other religious figures were mere men, not God in the flesh as was Jesus Christ. Here is what the official website for Baha'i teaches . . .
Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators—known as Manifestations of God—whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. These Manifestations have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.

The Baha'i religion is of the Devil, promoting one world religion. It is wickedness to elevate anyone to the same level as Jesus Christ. Every name of the religious prophets recognized by Baha'i are still in their graves except one... JESUS CHRIST! Buddha is still in his grave. Bahá'u'lláh is still in his grave! Muhammad is still in his grave. Ah, but the tomb where the Lord Jesus Christ was laid is EMPTY, because HE IS RISEN! Jesus Christ is risen from the dead!!! Jesus was nailed to the cross, dying for our sins. He was buried. After three days, Christ raised-up from the dead for our justification (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Like the demonic cult of Freemasonry, Baha'i recognizes all religions as being legitimate. That is, all except one belief system... CHRISTIANITY!!!
Baha'i is Satanic! In the Baha'i faith, you can believe anything you want, except to believe that there is only ONE WAY TO HEAVEN! The core ideology of the New World Order is unity, cooperation and love, love, love. Of course, it is not God's unconditional love; but rather, sinful compromise. Tolerating Satanic deception is not love. The road to the Lake of Fire is paved with good intentions and compromise. Love is not accepting all religions. How is it love when you let your neighbour go to Hell in his false hope? The world falsely claims that if you love others, you'll remain silent about what the Holy Bible teaches. The King James Bible is God's pure Words. According to the Bible, it's Jesus or Hell (John 6:28-29). Islam cannot save you.
Apple computer inventor Steve Jobs is sadly burning in Hell, because he was a devout Buddhist who rejected Jesus Christ. You see, the Godless world doesn't see the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That's because Satan deliberately blinds men's minds from the truth of the Gospel, to send them to Hell (2nd Corinthians 4:4). The Devil is a liar and a deceiver. A demon's favorite activity is to make people feel comfortable in their false religion, giving them a false hope. A man with no hope is better off than a man with a false hope, because the man with no hope is still searching.
If you don't believe that the Bible is God's inspired Words, then you won't see anything wrong with religions like Bahá'í. From a worldly perspective, a religion that accepts everybody sounds great. However, from a Biblical perspective, such a religion is satanic, because it gives people a false sense of security. Jesus Christ is the Savior of all men (1st Timothy 4:10), but you must receive Him personally (John 1:12) or you will spend eternity burning in Hell for your sins (Revelation 20:11-15; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). I love you in the Lord whoever you may be, which is why I wrote this article. Dan Seals is gone and it's too late for him, but you still have a chance to get saved before it's too late. Will you die in your sins (John 8:24), or will you die in the Lord (Revelation 14:13)?
Dan Seals Was a Member of a False Religion
The music of Dan Wayland Seals (aka, England Dan, 1948-2009) has inspired Americans for the past four decades with his music. Tragically, Dan Seals was a devout follower of the Bahá'í faith, which denies Jesus Christ...
Born Dan Wayland Seals, February 8, 1948, in McCarney, TX. Addresses: Record company-- Warner Bros., 1815 Division St., Nashville, TN 37212.
Singer and songwriter Dan Seals first came to fame as part of the pop duo England Dan and John Ford Coley. During the 1970s he and Coley released such pop and easy-listening hits as "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," "Never Have to Say Goodbye Again," and "Love Is the Answer." After Seals broke with Coley, he went on to become one of the hottest country performers of the late 1980s and early 1990s with smashes like "Bop" and "Love on Arrival."
...Despite his adoption of the stage name England Dan, Seals was actually born in McCarney, Texas. His was a musical family--older brother Jim is famed for his work in the folk duo Seals and Crofts, while another brother, Eddie, tours the Nashville nightclub circuit with his duo, Eddie & Joe.
... By the time he was a teenager, however, he had come to prefer rock and roll, and it was when they were members of a high school rock band that Seals first became acquainted with his future partner, John Ford Coley. Despite often practicing with one another, it took some time for the two of them to become good friends and begin writing songs together.
Meanwhile, the band was changing its focus from rock to soul, then acid rock. Not pleased with the group's direction, Seals and Coley left the band in 1969 to play milder music, especially folk. Unable to use Seals's last name because of his famous brother, they initially used his middle name, calling themselves Wayland and Coley. They finally settled on the England Dan tag, though, even before garnering some popularity in that country where they were the opening act for then-rising superstar Elton John. Encouraged by their success, Seals and Coley began looking for a recording contract, eventually signing with A&M Records in 1971.
England Dan and John Ford Coley made two albums for A&M-- Fables and I Hear the Music. Not only did these efforts meet with less success than the duo had hoped, but the two men were dissatisfied with their lives in general. Accordingly, they decided to concentrate more on their religion, the Baha'i faith, which seeks to promote the belief that all people are part of a spiritual whole. After a year and a half without recording, and performing only in small clubs or Baha'i Fireside shows, Seals and Coley were sufficiently refreshed to devote more attention to their professional careers. This time they signed with Atlantic Records, accepting songs written by other artists, and the hits began to come. Their first Atlantic album--released on the Atlantic subsidiary label Big Tree--was Nights are Forever Without You. It scored not only with the title track but with the duo's first gold single, "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight." [emphasis added]

Sadly, in 2009 Dan Seals died of a rare illness, Mantle Cell Lymphoma According to the inspired Words of God in the holy Bible, there is only one way to Heaven, and that is through the name of Jesus Christ. Acts 4:10-12, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Basic Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh
Bahá'u'lláh taught that there is one God whose successive revelations of His will to humanity have been the chief civilizing force in history. The agents of this process have been the Divine Messengers whom people have seen chiefly as the founders of separate religious systems but whose common purpose has been to bring the human race to spiritual and moral maturity.
Humanity is now coming of age. It is this that makes possible the unification of the human family and the building of a peaceful, global society. Among the principles which the Bahá'í Faith promotes as vital to the achievement of this goal are
assurance to women of full equality of opportunity with men
recognition of the unity and relativity of religious truth
the realization of universal education
the responsibility of each person to independently search for truth
the establishment of a global commonwealth of nations
recognition that true religion is in harmony with reason and the pursuit of scientific knowledge

My friend, run as fast as you can from the Baha'i faith demonic cult. They will lead you away from THE TRUTH. The Bible warns lest as Eve was deceived by the serpent, so also may we be led astray by ANOTHER Gospel, ANOTHER Jesus or ANOTHER Spirit. 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”
Baha'i Faith Teaches A False Plan Of Salvation
I cannot say with any certainty where Dan Seals is at in eternity, but I seriously doubt if he's in Heaven if he was a devout member of the Baha'i Faith religion. My only hope is that perhaps he found Christ in the last days of his life. I can say 100% confidently that Dan Seals and anybody else is in Hell if they die in their sins without Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. All Christ-rejecters go to Hell, as we are warned in 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.”
The Baha'i Faith teaches a false plan of salvation...
Bahai's do not think of salvation in terms of salvation from the stain of "original sin," nor does it protect us from some external evil force or devil. Rather, it delivers people from the captivity to their own lower nature, a captivity that breeds private despair and threatens social destruction. Salvation means drawing nearer to God and progressing on the path to a deep and satisfying happiness.

In sharp contrast, the inspired Word of God says in 1st Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” In other words, it's Jesus or Hell. Jesus Christ is the ONLY Mediator between God and men, which is why the Lord stated in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus is the only name given among men whereby we must be saved Acts 4:10-12 says. Salvation is not optional, it is not religion, it is not a game; but rather, it is a matter of spiritual life and death. The moment you die your spirit will return into God's hand (Ecclesiastes 12:7; Hebrews 10:31), and you will either be cast into Hell or escorted by the angels into Heaven. How will you spend eternity... smoking or non-smoking?
Have you obeyed the good news (Gospel) of Jesus Christ? Jesus died, was buried and raised up from the dead three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). If you acknowledge your guilty of sin before God (Romans 3:19) and receive the Gospel as payment for YOUR SINS, then you are forgiven and saved. We are the SINNERS and Jesus is the SAVIOR. You obey the Gospel by believing the Gospel. The only thing that a person needs to repent of to be saved is their sin of unbelief. Repent and believe the Gospel, Mark 1:15 says!
Satan Blinds Men From The Light Of The Glorious Gospel
2nd Corinthians 4:4 teaches that Satan blinds men's MINDS from the light of the Gospel, lest they should believe and be saved. Most people false think they know what Christianity means, but they haven't a clue. Christianity is NOT a philosophy, nor is it church membership, nor is it ascribing to a set of principles as set forth in the Bible. Christianity means having Christ born in you. Salvation is a supernatural miracle of God in response to our faith in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you believe upon Jesus, the Christ, the only begotten Son of God Who died, was buried and raised up for your sins, then you are saved. Salvation is receiving, not giving. A gift is received freely, without any obligations. Jesus shed His blood to pay for our sins (1st Peter 1:18-19).
Christianity's foundation according to 1st Corinthians 3:11 is JESUS CHRIST. All modern false so-called Christian cults are based upon the opinions and writings of a man or woman. JW's follow Charles Russell. Seventh-day Adventists follow Ellen G. White. Christian Science follows Mary Baker Eddy. Mormons follow Joseph Smith. Charismatics follow Oral Roberts. Scientologists follow Ron Hubbard. Catholics follow the Vatican. Lutherans follow Martin Luther. And there are many others. As Christian believers we follow the Word of God. Jesus said in John 5:39 to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!!!
Faith In The Gospel Of Jesus Christ Is The Only Way To Heaven

Jesus gave His precious blood on Calvary. He ascending into Heaven and applied that physical blood to the heavenly mercy seat in the holy place (Hebrews 9:12,22-24). The price for man's sins has been paid. Eternal life is bought and paid for if you'll accept it. But make no mistake, your own self-righteousness is not the way to receive God's free gift. Isaiah 64:6 says our best efforts are filth to God, because He is a holy God and we are sinful humans. Jesus is the God-man, Who came into the world to redeem mankind back to God the Father.
Christ died, was buried and raised up after three days according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. This good news is called THE GOSPEL, and it's the only way to Heaven. There is NO forgiveness of sins apart from the blood which Jesus shed for your sins and mine. Won't you receive Him now as the Christ? By faith, make the Gospel your hope for Heaven. Receive Christ's sacrifice of His body and blood as payment for your sins. There is no other way. Buddha's hands have no scars, and he is still lying in his grave. Muhammad's hands have no scars, and his body is still in his tomb.
Ah, but Jesus' hands and feet still have scars, and His body is gone, gone, gone! The stone wasn't rolled away to let Jesus out of the grave; but rather, to let the world know that JESUS HAS RISEN!!! Jesus tomb is empty my friend! Jesus is seated in Heaven on the right-hand of the Father, making intercession for His saints (Romans 8:34; Colossians 3:1-3).
Please don't let the Devil deceive you into following him into the Lake of Fire for all eternity (Revelation 20:12-15). Make no mistake, without the Holy Spirit of God you cannot enter into Heaven (Romans 8:9).
