Hillsong Worship Leader Announces He’s No Longer a Christian: “I’m Genuinely Losing My Faith”

On the heels of author Joshua Harris’ renouncement of his Christian faith late last month, popular Hillsong worship leader Marty Sampson has made a similar announcement.

Following suit with the ‘I Kissed Dating Goodbye’ author, Sampson released the disheartening news in an Instagram post that has since been removed.

The Sydney native has written and co-written songs for big Christian artists like Hillsong United, Hillsong Worship, Young & Free, and Delirious. Sampson first started leading worship with Hillsong in the late 1990s, though he hasn’t penned songs for them in years.

Marty Sampson on Losing His Faith

“I’m genuinely losing my faith, and it doesn’t bother me,” he wrote, adding that he is “so happy now” and “at peace with the world.”

The songwriter then went into what he called a “soapbox moment,” posing controversial questions regarding Christianity and the church that he feels nobody is addressing:

“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 four billion people to a place, all ‘coz they don’t believe? No one talks about it.”‘

Sampson remarked that Christians can be some of the “most judgmental people on the planet,” while others are “beautiful and loving people.”
