We could start listing about half of George's catalog.

Yes, solo counts.

I'm not as familiar with George's solo material as I am with the others. Does he point towards Christianity or other religions. I guess I'm really going after what could be considered Christianity references.

Does The Ballad of John & Yoko count?

There are references to Christ and crucifixion.

I'm not terribly familiar with George's solo stuff either, but it seems to me he was happy with the "spiritual" aspects of the various Eastern faiths, more so than whatever the precise tenets were. 

As for Christianity referrnces, I don't think there's much there (again, I don't really know the catalog), but "Brainwashed" has a track or two with references to Catholicism.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

That seems to be more of an acknowledgement of a story than belief or faith in the story.

Paul sings "hosanna*" to the morning sun.

*especially in biblical, Judaic, and Christian use) used to express adoration, praise, or joy.
“Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.“"

Yeah a good amount of George's stuff is religious, Christianity and some hindu stuff.

The Inner Light

My Sweet Lord

Awaiting On You All

Art Of Dying

Hear Me Lord

I Live For You

Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

The Light That Has Lighted The World

Far East Man

It Is "He" (Jai Sri Krishna)

Dear One

If You Believe

That Which I Have Lost

Devil's Radio

Heading For The Light

Any Road

Looking For My Life

Rising Sun

There's others in his career that are vaguely spiritual and talk about some religious principles, but I just pulled the ones that were explicitly religious.

'Motor of Love' is a song about God and getting thru by his love. I have no idea what Paul's beliefs are but if George had sung that folk would be pointing to it as one of his most blatant God songs, as it's Paul they just moan about its length. 

Motor of Love
 
I can't get over your love
No matter how hard life seems,
There's a light in my dreams
Thanks to you.
My friends keep asking me why
There's such a smile on my face,
There's a home at my place,
Thanks to you.
I don't want anything from you,
Turn on your motor of love.
 
Motor of love, motor of love.
Heavenly father look down from above,
I can't get over your powerful motor of love.
 
I can't get over your love
No matter how lost I feel,
I know my love is real,
Thanks to you.
You simply reached out your hand
And touched me deep in my soul,
I came in out of the cold,
Thanks to you.
I won't steal anything from you,
You give me more than enough.
 
Motor of love, motor of love.
Heavenly father look down from above,
I can't get over your powerful motor of love.
 
There was a time
When I was down and counted out,
Well I remember I felt so bad
I nearly threw away,
Nearly threw away the keys.
 
Motor of love, motor of love.
Heavenly father look down from above,
Motor of love, motor of love.
Heavenly father look down from above,
I can't get over your powerful
Motor of love.

"God bless our love" from Grow Old With Me

---

From R U Ready. However, the other lyrics in the song aren't "Southern Baptist" conservative theology. ahdn_paul_02

Jesus was a wise man

Preacher was a good man
Why was he so blue?
He was ready to cross over, he was ready

Thanks for the transfer.  I forgot about Rain too!  Here are two more:

Misery

Matchbox

Another iffy song I just thought of:

Anna vs Anna (Go To Him).  Old Vee-Jay releases did not give the parenthesis part.  Now I gotta check out the new Bakers Dozen list.
