’s Songwriter & Worship Leader , clarifies he hasn’t renounced faith and He’s No Longer a Christian

Unbelievable but truthfully On 10 August 2019, ’s leader and songwriter, has claim he is on longer a Christian announcing it vai a post on Instagram.

“This is a soapbox moment so here I go … How many preachers fall? Many,” he continued. “No one talks about it. How many miracles happen. Not many. No one talks about it. Why is the Bible full of contradictions? No one talks about it. How can God be love yet send four billion people to a place, all ‘coz they don’t believe? No one talks about it. Christians can be the most judgmental people on the planet-they can also be some of the most beautiful and loving people. But it’s not for me.”

Sampson cites science as one of the reason why he’s rejecting the Christian faith. “Science keeps piercing the truth of every religion. Lots of things help people change their lives, not just one version of God. Got so much more to say, but for me, I keeping it real. Unfollow if you want, I’ve never been about living my life for others.”

Christianity “just seems to me like another religion at this point,” Sampson said.

“I could go on, but I won’t,” he wrote. “Love and forgive absolutely. Be kind absolutely. Be generous and do good to others absolutely. Some things are good no matter what you believe. Let the rain fall, the sun will come up tomorrow.”


  1. here is no ‘prodigal’ ending for you, Marty. “I’m genuinely losing my faith and it doesn’t bother me.” Those aren’t the musings of a man struggling with doubt or tempted. Those are the musings of an apostate who if they should ‘fall away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame and “trampled under foot the Son of God and done despite to the spirit of grace.” There is no promise of God’s forgiveness from that, Marty. Whatever “faith” you lost wasn’t saving faith. Enjoy your newfound “peace.” It won’t last long…
