Michael Gungor and his wife Lisa of the grammy-nominated band “Gungor” have always been walking the edge of Christian orthodoxy, at least for those who are like-minded. Existing within the outskirt of Christian artistry, they’re the kind of band that Rachel Held Evans would have wanted to be played at her funeral, or perhaps who might be the opening act for Rob Bell or any other professing Christian who actually hates Jesus but doesn’t want to own up to it yet.
While Orthodox Christians wrote them off a long time ago, and the band itself eschews labels of what isn’t and is not Christian belief, they are still very popular with progressives as well as those who pour over the pages of Relevant Magazine, putting shows on at churches and Christian conferences still, despite frontman Michael describing himself as an on-again, off-again “Atheist.”
Thankfully, Michael took the time on Twitter to out himself as a thorough pagan.
Sadly, this won’t matter for professing “Christians” who love him and will continue to invite him to religious gatherings and Christian conferences. His lack of orthodoxy is to them not a bug but a feature. At least he’s brought a bit more clarity to where he stands. That’s no small thing. For this crowd who loves to embrace mystery and doubt and esoteric gnostic mysticism, certainty is perhaps the rarest trait of all.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.
And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.
