Hawk Nelson's Jon Steingard: ‘I No Longer Believe in God’ Featured
Hawk Nelson were a popular figure on the Life FM playlist from their formation back in the early 00's til they wrapped up releasing music 5 years ago. He shared a post on Instagram reading:
"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. The last few words of that sentence were hard to write. I still find myself wanting to soften that statement by wording it differently or less specifically – but that wouldn't be true."

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.
Doubt is a natural part of the faith process, and it's cool to see Jon being honest about his experiences instead of putting on a front. We've loved seeing the support from other Life FM artists for Jon in the comments of his Instagram post.
