Someone who Needs some Prayer

Never thought I'd be linking to an MTV story, but I think this is important.

"Korn has parted ways with guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch, who has chosen Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end," a statement from the band reads. "Korn respects Brian's wishes, and hopes he finds the happiness he's searching for."
I'm hoping that Christians will react to this in several different ways:

  • Pray for Brian Welch. Pray that he can grow in his faith without being thrown into the "new born again Christian former rock star" limelight. We tried to do that to Alice Cooper, remember?
  • Pray for the rest of Korn. Pray that through Brian's witness (even if it's simply walking away from a great gig to follow Christ) that they will be impacted, and they may come to find the peace that Brian has.
  • DON'T start talking about "ulterior motives" behind his conversion. People in the spotlight don't convert to Christianity and leave their current gig for monetary reasons. I got tired of hearing this about Deion Sanders, and I didn't even really like him.
He's already involved in a church, which is a good thing. I'm praying that he can grow there, and praising God for his conversion. Posted by Warren Kelly at February 22, 2005 06:36 PM
