This is an interesting article about Ex Korn Guitarist Brian Welch and his conversion to Christianity, or perhaps more accurately, his coming to know to Jesus. Welch was baptized in the Jordan River in 2005 and isn't too in-love with the "church" in general:
All of the man-made religion crap in this world has to die . . . All that prideful, controlling religious crap is what drives young people away from churches.Of course, this is no secret... that organized religion often does an awful job of showing the love of Christ to a hurting world. Welch, a founding member of one of the most successful and of the heaviest of metal bands, now sports tattoos that read:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matt 11:28)and...
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matt 5:8)It seems Brian Welch gets what the gospel is really about.
