He says he's not an atheist, but former born-again California rapper, actor, director and record producer Hopsin, whose real name is Marcus Jamal Hopson — who caused a stir last summer when he revealed he had lost his faith via the lyrics of his angst-filled song "Ill Mind of Hopsin 7" — says God is yet to prove to him that He exists.
In a recent interview with Hard Knock TV, Hopsin, 29, who released his latest album Pound Syndrome on Friday, explained his reason for walking away from Christianity. He said he was still searching for God, praised the human brain as a "godly organ" and revealed that if he gets proof that God is real he would have no problem dedicating "100 percent" of his life and time to Him.

The Korean office for Voice of the Martyrs announced at a press conference earlier this week that the Christian missionary organization will be sending Bibles into the southern part of North Korea.
"In North Korea, even children are aware of the risks of possessing a Bible. Even socks, clothes or food are dangerous. People who pick up a Bible know their choice is very risky, they could probably end up being executed," said the Rev.

Over 500 Christians rallied in support of religious freedom in Alabama on Saturday after a Christian flag that once flew over a local police department was forcibly removed amid threats of legal action from the nation's largest atheist organization.
The mayor of Glenco said he had no choice but to remove the Christian flag from outside the police department after the city received a complaint letter from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation.
"That would just about ruin us. … That's what they do, they pick on these smaller towns that can't defend ourselves," said Mayor Charles Gilchrist to WBRC Fox 6, noting the decision was made to remove the flag last month to avoid the costs of a potentially lengthy litigation. more >>
Erica Campbell, one half of Grammy award-winning gospel duo Mary Mary, recently opened up about faith and purpose while recalling how an atheist fan once got saved after listening to her music.
In an interview with Rollingout magazine, Campbell, who graces the latest cover, said that propelling people closer to faith through her music is validation from God that she's on the right track in fulfilling her purpose.
The "I Luh God" singer recalled a time that she and her sister, Tina, met an atheist woman who shared with them that she had found Jesus after hearing their "God in Me" song from Mary Mary's fourth studio album The Sound. more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham says that no true atheists exist today, and that there will be no atheists in eternity, despite what world famous atheists such as Richard Dawkins claim. Ham also said that atheists are "so aggressive" because they know the truth, but deny it.
"Some Americans call themselves atheists — and many in other countries openly profess atheism, but as I explain in my article below, there are no atheists now, and there will be no atheists in eternity," Ham said in a Facebook post on Monday, and linked to an earlier article where he called out Dawkins for his beliefs.
Ham argued that even Dawkins, the best-selling author and evolutionary biologist behind The God Delusion, has admitted that he is not "absolutely sure about atheism." more >>
