SKILLET's Jesus-Loving Frontman Blasts 'Hypocrisy In Christianity': 'I Find It Personally Disgusting'

In a brand new interview with Rock Feed, John Cooper, the frontman and bassist for the Grammy-nominated Christian rock band SKILLET, as soon as once more spoke about his intensely strict spiritual upbringing the place all pop music, black garments and even Christian rock music was banned and the way it formed his view of faith. He mentioned (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “There is a ton of hypocrisy in Christianity, within the church — there simply is — and I discover it personally disgusting…

“I do not wanna get right into a deep Bible lesson, so I’m not gonna preach to anyone. I’m gonna inform one thing that I consider. Take it or go away it, all people.

“I feel what I like about Christianity — one of many issues — is it offers you a framework for all the things that occurs in life,” he continued. “It is the distinction between saying that my life, John Cooper‘s life, the explanation that I exist is for me to be joyful and to really feel good and to get the issues I need and to be my most genuine self. That is a technique to have a look at life. The Christian viewpoint is that this: the explanation that I exist is definitely not about me and the issues that I need. The purpose that I exist because the creature is to provide glory to the Creator. And so no matter he needs from my life is ok; no matter he needs from my life is correct. And it offers you a framework of understanding relationships with mother and father, with wives, husbands, with youngsters, with associates, with enterprise. There’s no sphere of life that comes exterior of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. That’s the concept of Christianity that I simply discover so peaceable, as a result of then all the things is sensible. And no matter occurs — if I get COVID, if my spouse will get COVID or most cancers or no matter occurs, I do know it is throughout the framework of my life is right here to glorify the one who created me. So I do not should be egocentric and I do not should deal with you — whoever human being watching this program proper now — I do not should deal with you as a lesser particular person than me ‘trigger we’re each the identical; we have been created within the picture of God. And that could be a stunning image. Part of that signifies that I take a look at my mother who liked me and did her best possible to lift me, and I say she’s similar to me. She had good intentions and she or he had plenty of nice stuff, and I feel she missed it on some stuff. And I miss it on some stuff. And my spouse misses it on some stuff. And so you then start to provide grace to 1 one other to say, ‘I feel that they are mistaken about that, however hey, I’m not God and I do know I do a bunch of stuff mistaken.'”

Cooper added: “So, for me, Christianity wasn’t about all of the hypocrisy, although the hypocrisy is actual and I discover it personally disgusting. When you see these preachers which might be making thousands and thousands of {dollars} and begging for cash, that does not seem to be Christianity to me. When you see these preachers which might be speaking about ‘you get your life proper’ however they’re having affairs and hiring prostitutes, these individuals make me need to punch them within the balls. So that stuff is disgusting, nevertheless it teaches you to have grace for different individuals as a result of different individuals are simply as tousled as I’m.”

In numerous interviews through the years, John has mentioned that he “all the time had religion in God” and that his mom was a “Jesus fanatic.” He additionally claimed that he was prepared to place his profession on the road to take a stand for Christ.

Last April, Cooper informed the “Undaunted.Life: A Man’s Podcast” that it was completely positive for Christians to play rock music. “I might say that music is created not by the Devil; [it is] created by the Lord,” he mentioned. “All issues have been created by God. So as a substitute of considering that the Devil owns a style of music, I might say seize that music and produce it again into subjection beneath the Lordship of Christ.”

Cooper lately revealed his first ebook, titled “Awake & Alive To Truth (Finding Truth In The Chaos Of A Relativistic World)”. It “tackles the reigning philosophies of our day of post-modernism, relativism, and the favored view of the goodness of man-and combats these viewpoints by standing on absolutely the reality of the Word Of God,” the ebook’s description reads.
