Skillet’s John Cooper: ‘It’s Amazing How Much Lies Can Sound Like Truth’
John Cooper knows what it feels like to feel hurt, broken and angry. He knows what it feels like to question God and cry out for help. And because he knows Jesus, John has the answer to life’s problems. He’s committed to sharing that truth with people around the world through rock music.
John is the lead singer of the band Skillet and he joins us on this episode of GPS: God. People. Stories. You’ll hear John talk about the tragedy of losing his mom to cancer as a teenager, seriously doubting God in college and dealing with criticism from both the Christian and secular music industries. But you’ll also hear him discuss why his story is ultimately filled with hope and restoration.
We previously had John’s wife, Korey Cooper, on the podcast. She’s a guitarist in the band. You can hear her story here: https://billygraham.org/audio/skillets-korey-cooper-on-sharing-her-faith-on-and-off-stage/
