From Christians to Unbelievers: The Gungor Trend That’s Sweeping Churches
Lisa and Michael Gungor did the right things. They avoided sex before marriage, no booze, no drugs, no cussing. They were prayerful and read the Bible. Michael was the son of a Pastor, and Lisa was a leader in a mega-church.
They were talented recording artists with a Dove Award-nominated song and a couple of tours. In 2006, the Gungors parted ways with Integrity Music because they no longer wanted to be associated with gospel music.
They have decided to unfollow Jesus; no turning back
Lisa went to Auschwitz and visited the Nazi concentration camps. She couldn’t believe the horror the Jews, God’s chosen, had to bear. Lisa questioned God’s love, power, and authority. Later, she found it difficult to pray to ‘a God’ who allowed so much pain and suffering.
Her cousin had cancer and was declared healed after so many prayers. Everyone ‘Praised God.’ Later, she learned it was only partial healing. “I lost my mind,” Lisa said. Her years of silent questions erupted. She ranted, “‘I don’t believe any of this!”
The final blow in 2014
The Gungors welcomed their second daughter, this time with Down syndrome. The Gungor couple could no longer see God in their family equation.
The Gungor trend that’s sweeping churches
The Gungors labeled Christianity “conservative and militant” and established their scripture-free home church. Lisa described her frustration with religion as “garbage” and called it a “very conservative fundamental bubble.”
Millions of silent Christian agnostics today come to church out of fear of missing out.
Lisa Gungor – “Christianity is a bubble”
Years before declaring himself an atheist, Michael Gungor said: “I think my specific place in the Body is to help people experience the presence of God in their lives.” His song evolved from singing, “God is my father” to a bitter “God is not my father.” (Worshiping Evolutionist)
Lisa Gungor’s twisted view of the Christian life is, “If I am good enough if I pray enough, if I believe enough, then I get blessings, perhaps a healthy baby, or generally a good life.”
From an evangelist, the Gungor now encourages others not to be afraid to break free from the ‘bubble’ of Christianity.
Why is this happening?
The Bible warns us that Satan is the prince of this sinful world. There is a vast army of devils that seeks to destroy Christians (1 Peter 5:8). For thousands of years, the enemy has been plotting and infiltrating churches by confusing us.
