. . .Marty Sampson — an Australian worship music songwriter known for his work with Hillsong — said, “All I know is what’s true to me right now, and Christianity just seems to me like another religion at this point.”
Sampson wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that “I’m genuinely losing my faith…and it doesn’t bother me…like, what bothers me now is nothing…I am so happy now, so at peace with the world.. it’s crazy.” It also appears he’s cleared his Instagram account of all posts.
Sampson added, “How many preachers fall? 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 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. I am not in anymore.”

“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 … Unfollow if you want, I’ve never been about living my life for others.”
Sampson concluded his post with the following: “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.” (Read more from “Losing Faith: Notable Christian Songwriter Says He’s No Longer a Believer” HERE)
