The lead singer of the Christian rock band Skillet is urging the church to stop making worship and “thought” leaders the “source of truth,” saying feelings and emotions must take a backseat to the truth of God’s Word.
John Cooper, whose band is among the most successful crossover groups in modern music, penned a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday reacting to prominent Christian leaders falling from the faith. Cooper didn’t list names, but his post came days after Hillsong’s Marty Sampson said he was losing his faith and several weeks after bestselling author Joshua Harris said he is no longer a Christian.
“It is time for the church to rediscover the preeminence of the Word. And to value the teaching of the Word,” Cooper wrote. “We need to value truth over feeling. Truth over emotion. And what we are seeing now is the result of the church raising up influencers who did not supremely value truth who have led a generation who also do not believe in the supremacy of truth. And now those disavowed leaders are proudly still leading and influencing boldly AWAY from the truth.”
The church, Cooper argued, too often looks to the wrong leaders for biblical guidance.
“My conclusion for the church (all of us Christians): We must STOP making worship leaders and thought leaders or influencers or cool people or…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
