Jonathan Steingard, the frontman for Christian Rock band “Hawk Nelson” shared with his Instagram followers that he no longer believes in God.
“After growing up in a Christian home, being a pastor’s kid, playing and singing in a Christian band, and having the word ‘Christian’ in front of most of the things in my life — I am now finding that I no longer believe in God,” he shared in a series of screenshots. “I have been terrified to be honest about this publicly for quite some time, because of all that I thought I would lose.”
He captioned the series of screenshots with the following message:
“I’ve been terrified to post this for a while – but it feels like it’s time for me to be honest. I hope this is not the end of the conversation, but the beginning. I hope this is encouraging to people who might feel the same but are as afraid to speak as I am. I want to be open. I want to be transparent with you all – and also open to having my heart changed in the future. I am not looking for a debate at all – just a chance to share my story in the hopes some good can come from it. I love you all.”
