Desiring God and TGC Author Renounces His Faith, Says He’s in The Best Place of His Life

Apostasy is one of the most tragic phenomenons of Christianity. It never ceases to amaze how someone can live such a lie for such a long time only to end up renouncing their faith. Time after time, popular Christian figures have renounced their faith over the centuries–but it appears to be picking up at breakneck speed.

Several popular and prominent Christian figures have renounced their Christianity over the last couple of years including the former editor of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, popular Hillsong musician, Marty Sampson, and purity culture pastor, Josh Harris, among many others.

Now, another prominent Christian figure has renounced his faith–a former Desiring God writer and the author of the book, The Trauma of Doctrine, Paul Maxwell.

Maxwell made his announcement on his Instagram feed earlier today.

“What I really miss is connection with people,” Maxwell says, “what I’ve discovered is that I’m ready to connect again. And I’m kind of ready not to be angry anymore. I love you guys and I love all the friendships and support I’ve built here. And I think it’s important to say that I’m just not a Christian anymore, and it feels really good. I’m really happy.”

While it is always difficult to hear such a prominent figure in Evangelicalism renounce their faith, it’s also difficult to be surprised.

“Prominent Christian Figure?” I’ve never heard of him. And I’ve lived my life in a Christian culture.

Now, he’ll be perfectly welcome in the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church USA, Evangelical Lutheran, United Church of Christ, and any other “church of what’s happening now” cult.


Same here Keith. To me “Prominent Christian Figure” has a negative tone about it. Never heard of him and it doesn’t pain me to hear of any of his decisions. But he will still fit in with a majority segment of the TGC bunch. It will be interesting to hear what heretic Tim Keller will comment about him, I’m sure he won’t be “hurtful” toward him.


I’ve just recently become familiar with the Gospel Coalition. It seems to be a “reform” organization, which explains why I’m not familiar with the actors – I’m firmly evangelical on the Arminian side. I have recently learned about Keller’s heretical stances, and it doesn’t surprise me that another collegue has thrown in the towel.


soon he will be announced as professor at Southern Seminary


One word…FOOL!


I’ve Never heard of him at all. A lot of non-Christian people leave Christanity basically because they never were Christian. But if he is he’ll be back. He might just need some time in the “far country” before he returns.
