I had not ever heard about this until I came across it in a video. Was anyone else aware of this? I was shocked to discover it.

He is a famous singer in the contemporary Christian music genre.

"Another One Bites The Dust" I suppose...

What possible causes for this type of action?

Was his career flagging? Sometimes people who make their living in the public eye or as a performer, celebrity, etc. will jump ship and/or "switch things up" to attempt to stay viable.

Could be an enlightenment or epiphany that led him away from Christianity to Atheism.

IMO, if there's an interview with an artist in a case like this, what they state as reason for their actions may not be the genuine or underlying cause, keeping in mind many times keeping in the public eye is the most important goal, and ANY publicity is good publicity.

I listened to an interview. He said that his "inner voice" is telling him the same things it always had, but he just doesn't believe it is God anymore.

He also said that he overcame some personal struggles and issues which he had apparently dealt with for many years, after leaving Christianity.

Not surprisingly, I'd never heard of him. But it does happen. If true, I'd have to say that I am always vaguely astonished that anyone who was convinced that the Inner Voice that most of us seem to have (I have one myself) is God, can ever come to think that it isn't.

There is a nice well -poisoning and character -assassinating article about him here.

There is an old saying: 'The Church is the only army that shoots its' own wounded'.

I don't know. Would you like to try to do some research and find out what his views on religion now are?

I honestly don't know. But why would it surprise anyone that someone who is in the whole Contemporary Christian music scene grow disillusioned with it? So much of it is just so shallow. He is no more a proof against Christianity than I am a proof for you all to convert to Christianity. He's just one guy.

I didn't get (from the one article that I accessed) that the (now) drunken and blaspheming Mr Webb has got disillusioned with the Christian Music scene, but had come to realise that the 'god' -voice in his head, wasn't a god.

And that is is fact a pretty telling piece of evidence for the atheist case - the God in your head is Not God. On the contrary, your Faith in God is evidence for nothing but Faith.

Again....so he "came to realize" that the thing he believed all along was not real. I personally have never had a "god voice" in my head. Never claimed to. It's not Biblical. If that's what he actually said, then it tells me that he really never had a Biblical faith to begin with. And it's no more a disproof for God than my faith is a reason for everyone that reads this to convert on the spot.

It's amazing how you seem to think that one guy getting fed up with living a charade disproves the real thing.
