In this podcast, J. Warner moderates a panel discussion on the topic of Christian ‘celebrities’ leaving the faith or deconstructing their beliefs. The panelists are Alisa Childers, a former singer of ZOEgirl and an author of Another Gospel, John Cooper, the lead singer of Skillet and an author of Awake and Alive to Truth, and Dave Stovall, a former musician of Waverly and Audio Adrenaline and a worship leader at Journey Church. They share their insights and experiences on how to deal with doubt, how to discern truth from error, how to respond to cultural pressure, and how to stay faithful to the historic Christian faith. This podcast was created from a session at the 2022 National Conference on Christian Apologetics hosted by Southern Evangelical Seminary.
