In a lengthy Instagram post, Steingard said:  “I’ve been terrified to post this for a while – but it feels like it’s time for me to be honest,” he wrote in the caption to his multi-image post of his statement.

“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 it wouldn’t be as true.”

Steingard said he discovered some close friends also had the same feeling but are afraid to express themselves.

His fellow band members supported the singer in a statement to USA Today, saying that Hawk Nelson’s mission is to “inspire and encourage all people with the truth that God is FOR them and not against them.”
