Two weeks ago, we reported the apostasy of Marty Sampson, the Hillsong worship leader who renounced his faith on Instagram. He noted in his announcement that he was “genuinely losing his faith,” and many took this to be that he was struggling, but hadn’t actually left the faith.

Of course, Reformation Charlotte took the biblical viewpoint that Marty Sampson wasn’t “leaving” the faith, but had never been genuinely converted, to begin with — which drew criticism from around the nation, including from Michael Brown.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

Now, Marty Sampson has clarified his position and made one final post on Instagram declaring his true apostasy. It is obvious from Sampson’s letter that he has now gotten what he wants from Hillsong — fame and notoriety — and has no further use for Hillsong. He writes,

I love you @brianchouston I love you @bobbiehouston I love you @joelhouston I love you @benjaminhouston I love you @lauratoggs – Thank you for all the amazing memories, for the nights at your place sleeping on the floor, for the amazing times when I saw what a BEAUTIFUL family looks like. For the days where I fit in, where I was received with love, Brian when you officiated my wedding, for asking how my kids were, for letting me write songs and sing and have trust in me to go around the world doing what I always dreamed of doing. Thank you for the good times and for all the belief you have put into so many. You are genuinely inspiring, I love you. To @hillsong my beautiful family of amazing souls, I have loved being close to you all and I really miss being around you all. You are some of the most wonderful people I know. Thank you for all the love and all the grace and kindness you have shown me for these many years. To the CHURCH of Jesus Christ, I forgive you, and I LOVE you. I’ve got tears running down my face because it’s so true. I adore you Christians. I love you SO MUCH. That’s all. It was amazing being one of you, but I’m not any more. I love you all, and I always will. I won’t forget how much I love Christians, even if they don’t love me, I will always love you. Sorry for any bad words I have ever said about any of you. Forgive me. I love you all.
