Christian rocker and worship leader Michael Gungor recently appeared on the Bad Christian Podcast where he discussed some of the backlash he received from blog posts sharing his beliefs on the literal account of creation and the flood in the book of Genesis.
The singer recently came under fire when various media outlets reported on the post where he voiced his beliefs in science and admitted that he does not interpret the accounts of Noah and Adam and Eve literally. He defended his perspective during the podcast and also made an interesting comment in regards to what the fundamentalist church bases its beliefs on in the 21st century.
"If you asked any Christian before the Enlightenment, 'What is the foundation of your faith?' Everybody's going to say Jesus Christ," he said. "If you ask somebody now, especially an evangelical or fundamentalist, there's a good chance they're going to say the Bible." more >>

Instead of recording his latest material in a fancy studio with some of gospel music's biggest names that he might have had access to, LeVar opted to work out of The Dream Center, a rehabilitation facility in Los Angeles, Calif.
