John Cooper has been entertaining audiences for more than two decades as the lead singer of popular rock band Skillet, but now he’s adding a new mission into the mix: combating cultural relativism.
Cooper, who has been increasingly vocal on issues plaguing Christianity and America, is out with a new book titled, “Awake and Alive to Truth: Finding Truth in the Chaos of a Relativistic World” — and he’s intent on driving home truth in an era of biblical apathy.
“We have gotten so scared about saying things that are true that it has caused a crisis,” the singer recently said on the “Edifi With Billy Hallowell” podcast. “It has caused a crisis of people believing that they are good and that they can reach heaven without Jesus’ help.”
Cooper has become more vocal in recent months about issues plaguing culture — a move that came after he started seeing friends around him struggle with their faith and make comments that didn’t quite align with biblical truth.
As some of his Christian friends started to say, “I don’t think that Jesus is the only way,” or make other unbiblical claims, Cooper’s fears about the watering down of faith sparked in him a desire to speak out and help others navigate the ebbs and flows of an increasingly chaotic culture.
