Hillsong's Marty Sampson "Genuinely Losing Faith"

Hillsong worship leader Marty Sampson announced on Instagram Friday that he's "genuinely losing his faith"—and he's not upset about it.

"I'm genuinely losing my faith ... and it doesn't bother me."

Sampson was one of Hillsong United's original worship leaders and wrote and co-wrote hundreds of praise songs including hits like "Now that You're Near," "King of Majesty," "O Praise the Name," "For Who You Are" and "Open Heaven."

In his post—which has since been deleted, along with the rest of the artist's Instagram posts—he included a picture of what appears to be Samson bringing down the pillars of the Philistine temple in Judges 16. He writes that the more he thinks about it, the more Christianity seems just like every other religion, and he doesn't want any part of it anymore:

"Christians can be some of 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. I am not in any more. I want genuine truth. Not the 'I just believe it' kind of truth. Science keeps piercing the truth of every religion. Lots of things help people change their lives, not just one version of God."

"How many preachers fall?" he asks. "Many. 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 4 billion people to a place, all coz [sic] they don't believe? No one talks about it."

Josh McDowell has announced his leaving of Christianity as well. The guy that wrote,"I kissed dating goodbye" and all.


You know...that "christian" fad that made so many young people sound so spiritual at camp and then they go off and marry some weirdo.lol

One thing is very clear after reading this statement from Marty Sampson ....

He's never been on AFF!

He definitely seems a wee bit sheltered.

Life with the true Christ is not for everyone. Just for those who take the cross and die to self.

Re: Hillsong's Marty Sampson "Genuinely Losing Fai

Considering all of the abominations of Hillsong, Bethel, and IHOP, I can not say that I am surprised he decided that Christianity is a farce. Charismatic/Third Wave/Prosperity/New Apostolic Reformation have done nothing but pollute the stream and muddy the waters of authentic Christianity. It is a pity that it is a monster that devours her own children.

That's Joshua Harris. Josh McDowell is an apologist who is not leaving Christianity.
