Paul Maxwell, Former Writer for John Piper’s Desiring God Blog, Announces He is No Longer a Christian

Another high-profile Christian personality has announced that he is no longer part of the faith, a report says.

Paul Maxwell, formerly a writer for John Piper’s Desiring God, has announced that he is no longer a Christian, the Christian Post reported.

Maxwell made the announcement via a post in Instagram, saying “What I really miss is connection with people.”

“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.”

He didn’t explain the reason why he departed from the faith, but indicated that he is still figuring out what to do next.

“I can’t wait to discover what kind of connection I can have with all of you beautiful people as I try to figure out what’s next,” he said. “I love you guys. I’m in a really good spot. Probably the best spot of my life. I’m so full of joy for the first time. I love my life.”

People tried to reach out to Maxwell regarding his decision. While some of them warned him about the results of his turning away from the faith, some of them expressed their sadness at his decision to turn his back from Jesus Christ. The fitness buff, who owns a Facebook account named “TheoFitCo,” acknowledged the love that they have for him, but stopped at merely “respecting” their comments.
