After reading where George Perdikis one of the co-founder of the group Newsboys said he is an atheist, I got concerned and wondered how many other Christian musicians are out there questioning their faith. I also got concerned when he said he figures only one out of 10 Christian bands he toured with were actual Christians. If true we are in trouble.
I will attach the article at the end of my perspective.
The problem outlined is not isolated to musicians only, I am sure just about everyone knows someone with questions about their beliefs.
I am writing a book on deception and in this book I tackle a few important questions:
- Why do you believe what you believe?
- How do you know what you believe is true?
- What litmus test do you use to come to truth?
Plus many more.
These questions are pivotal in navigating the journey of life.
There are things one can be wrong about but not our eternal destiny. The stakes are just too high.
This post is just to say, If you have questions about the faith, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I believe with open dialogue, we can learn from each other. My goal is not to lose anymore because of unanswered questions. I might not be able to answer everyone personally but I promise to make recommendations of reputable sources you can consult with any questions.
I took this journey for truth many years ago, and I can tell you unequivocally that my faith is rock solid. Meaning I know why I believe what I believe. There are many things you can tell me but one you won’t be able to tell me is that there is no God. I am too far gone for that🙂 I have seen too much, experienced too much to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is a God. I also know part of my journey is based on faith for sure, but there is enough evidence to justify and solidify my own personal belief in God.
To all musicians struggling with doubt don’t give up. God has a plan for your life and if you seek Him you will find Him. I did and finding God changed my life, finding Him will change your life too.
Here is the article I mentioned.
