We believe that those who sing for God, Pastor’s and their families must be very fond of God and won’t denounce him publicly but that wasn’t the case with the lead singer of Hawk Nelson who doubles as a pastor’s son.

Jon Steingard, a popular gospel musician and lead singer of a popular gospel band, Hawk Nelson revealed that he no longer believes in God. Steingard who is also the son of a pastor said he was “terrified” to make the revelation. He posted his thoughts on Instagram.

“I’ve been terrified to post this for a while– but it feels like it’s time for me to be honest,” Steingard posted on Instagram.

Jon Steingard said he never thought he could make such revelations and admitted that he can no longer sing in good conscience.

“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,” Steingard continued.

“This is not a post I ever thought that I would write, but now I feel like I really need to.”

He said he accepts that God exists but the creator is very different from what he was taught growing up in a Christian home.

“I’m open to the idea that God is there. I’d prefer if he was. I suspect if he is there, he is very different than what I was taught.”

Although Steingard becomes the latest to join the tall list of musicians and Christians to renounce their faith, he received an overwhelming support from several musicians including Mike Donehey.
