Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch: “Are you still a Christian?”


Corn guitar player Brian “Head” Welch He clarified again his recent comments about Christianity, insisting that he was only referring to the fact that he had been “over-zealous” and “repugnant” with his faith when he first became a Christian.

During the advent of March 2021 on machine head confrontation leader Rob Flynn‘s “No Regret Fokin’ With Rob Flynn” audio notation, Welch – who left Corn In early 2005, around the same time he announced that he was kicking out his drug and alcohol addiction by becoming a born-again Christian—he spoke about the impact of his newfound consciousness on his life, his family and the influential rock work he was involved in—it was founded nearly 30 years ago. He was asked if he thought religion became his “new addiction” after he got out of CornAnd Welch He said, “The crazy thing is that I had to experience something from another dimension. And it wasn’t religion — going to church and being a good boy — I just felt like something had entered my house, and I can’t explain it to this day. But I think Christ was doing something inside of me.” So that was real – it was so real. But yeah, I guess I went too far into it. And I became obsessed with it, just like I was a drug freak. I think I definitely did. And I had to get out of that and find normalcy, because There is nothing worse than an annoying religious person just shoving it in your throat – there is nothing worse than that, I saw it in the documentary [‘Loud Krazy Love’, which documents Brian‘s journey towards sobriety]And Jonathan‘s [Davis, KORN singer], like, “I hate these fuckers.” People can’t stand them. And for years, we’ve had these Christians out Corn concerts saying Cornall of this. It’s crazy – it’s a crazy thing. But I’m glad I went through it. And I am happy that I am what I am now, and I have a lot of peace and rest for my soul. I feel balanced and at peace with myself.”

Welch Address the negative reactions he received “No fuckin’ regrets” From the comments in a new video uploaded to his site Youtube channel. In a three-minute clip titled “Am I Still a Christian?” , Welch Said (as written by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “Christian media and other websites and stuff, especially the Christian side, there’s been a lot of stories about Christian musicians abandoning their faith. So it’s really useful for enticing clicks. A lot of this media took it and listened to it and thought I’d give it up, So it was definitely taken out of context.

“When I first became a Christian, I was off methamphetamine, first of all, and I had a very powerful encounter where God was revealing Himself to me. So these two sides of the coin — getting off methamphetamine and strong confrontation — I didn’t know how to act and I came out. I just got so excited, I was obnoxious with my faith, and it took me a while to get it down. That’s all I was trying to say in this video, in this podcast with Rob Flynn.

“I still share my faith, and my personal stories of things going through in a non-religious way, I feel,” he continued. “I try to be very spiritual, but no… Like, ‘This is this, this is how you helped me, da da da.'”

“My boss hit me up and he’s, like, ‘Hey, I think you should address this because I think people are really starting to believe you gave up on that. ‘ And I said, ‘Okay. OK. I will be posting a thread about it.”

“But that kind of thing just doesn’t get to me at all,” Welch explained. “It’s just, like, whatever. People can twist your words however they want. I have a great relationship with God and I know where that stands. So I’m pretty confident about that, so I don’t really have to worry about that for a temporary controversy.”

Less than a month after departure CornAnd Welch – He wears a white robe and has a long beard – He was baptized in the Jordan River in Israel, with about 20 other members of the Bible Valley Fellowship, Bakersfield, California, Church, where he spoke two weeks ago. on time, Brian Tell MTV News He decided to be baptized in Jordan after receiving a divine message.

“God told me… He didn’t say, ‘Hello Brian! , ‘I have a feeling in my heart that he will tell me something, I will be told something [in Israel], ” Welch He said. “Because the priest will immerse me in the Jordan, and when I come back here, I will be a different person.”

Welch officially returned to Corn In 2013, one year after joining the band on stage at Carolina Rebellion Festival in Rockingham, North Carolina to perform “blind”.

Since his conversion to Christ more than 16 years ago, Welch He was very open about how God changed his lifestyle and restored his relationship with his daughter.

In the last years, Brian He was preaching that people should not wait until they died to see if an encounter with God’s presence was real.

Both Welch And Corn Guitar player Reginald “Feldi” Arvizo They had very general, albeit separate, conversion experiences that were greeted with a certain amount of skepticism.

earlier this year, Welch talk to me “TruthSeekah” Podcast about the backlash he received from Christians who criticized the guitarist for allegedly retracting his faith. “This guy said… I saw one A clip a friend sent me,” Welch He remembers. And he’s, like, ‘He gets a lot of messages about this.’ And [the video] I was [dubbed],Brian Welch Christian leaves,’ or something. I got thousands of views. In the clip I saw, the guy said, ‘I’d be so bold as to say Brian Welch He was never a Christian. ‘ I just, like, ‘Dude.’…I’m thinking of this guy, and I’m going to say, ‘Do you really have the gossip to say that?’ This puts yourself on the level of God. And so I’m kind of afraid for this guy. It’s just like too far. Oh man…this is messing with things, man, you shouldn’t be messing with it. This is the first thing that Jesus sought with the Pharisees in the Gospels. He was very angry and opposed to that spirit – the spirit of judgment – and this and that, and Jesus with whores saying “Come to all the broken ones.” Is this guy saying that? Fabulous. This will be an interesting conversation. Honestly, I saw it, and I just said, “Lord, have mercy on this man. He doesn’t know what to do. Have mercy on him. And where I’m wrong, fix me too. I’m just trying to take the humble approach. But that’s how I feel. And it was a little sad, But it wasn’t a big problem.”
