  1. It honestly scared me when John said "When I fight with my wife" because I've seen a lot of pictures of her with bruises and red marks… Then once I saw possibly scars under her tattoos, I'm not saying that I'm 100% sure he's hurting her, but it's just something I'm curious and paranoid about.

  2. I find it hard to believe that anyone could actually worship God "in spirit and in truth" with this sort of music. More of an emphasis needs to be placed on praise songs with the lyrics coming directly out of the Bible. Too few people who say they are Christian actually know the Bible.

  3. JOHN COOPER, I HAVE A SONG THAT HAS CORDS TO GO WITH IT. LONG STORY BEHIND THE SONG. A LADY I KNOW VERY WELL BACK IN PENNSYLVANIA WAS HOMELESS AND LIVING OUT OF HER BROKEN DOWN MINI VAN. THIS IS GOING TO BE LONG! LOL
    ANYWAY, I USED TO GO TO THE LIBRARY AND ONE DAY I SEEN HER THERE. BEAUTIFUL HEARTED WOMAN. CHRISTAIN LADY. SHE KNEW I PLAYED BASS GUITAR FOR CHURCH AND SHE HAD WRITTEN A POEM. SHE ASKED ME TO MAKE A SONG FOR HER USING THIS POEM. I TOOK IT IN FOR CHURCH PRACTICE ON SUNDAY BEFORE SERVICE. MY MUSIC DIRECTOR AND ME WHERE TALKING ABOUT DIFFERENT THINGS AND GOD TOLD ME TO ASK HIM. SO I SAID THAT THIS LADY HAD GIVING ME A POEM AND NEEDED MUSIC FOR IT. HE TOLD ME THAT HE HAD A WRITTEN A SONG WITH NO WORDS, SO WE GOT TOGETHER AND COMBINED THESE TWO THINGS. BEAUTIFUL SONG. GLORY TO GOD. AMEN. SO THERE'S MORE BUT I'M SURE YOU WOULD WANT TO KNOW. I'LL LEAVE IT AT THAT. GOD BLESS AND THANKS FOR WHAT YOU DO FOR THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST.

  4. First of all…. no one knows if god exist. Second of all…. why would people be surprised that a rock band is a Christian band? Third of all…. you aren’t hard rock

  5. Skillet is NOT a Christian band!! They have clearly sold their souls to Lucifer, in exchange for fame and fortune, which is how they became big so fast. They use a lot of satanic symbolism on their album covers as well as in their concerts. Why would they use the all-seeing eye on their Awake CD cover? That is a satanic symbol used by the Freemasons. They have also used a lot of black and white color combos, which is used by the Freemasons as well. These guys need to repent and come back to Christ!!

  6. gee, honesty!. thank you Lord for using Skillet for many years now as well as Switchfoot, Red, P.O.D., Nine Lashes, TFK, Mutemath, Newsboys, D C Talk, Petra, and many more. music is a gift for God almighty. it's like any other gift from above. how will one use it?.

  7. To hear a news channel say the words "Faith" and "Jesus Christ" and talk about bolth God and people's belief in Jesus is amazing. I wish fox or cbs or any popular news outlet stoped selling the news and started telling it!

  8. i am a big fan of this band. even as an atheist i enjoy the sound and like andrei hrin said.. i just replace their praises to god with stuff other than that.. i mainly enjoy the way vocals flow with the music,, cause you can just be making sounds and if it flows with the music well it still sounds good
