Following up on an earlier "Public Statement" that revealed he was "penniless" and had been living in his truck, Creed signer Scott Stapp uploaded two more rambling videos this week, discussing his financial troubles, the removal of God from American life and the vengeance soon to find those who have wronged him.
"Now the process has officially begun and heads are getting ready to start rolling," says Stapp in one of the videos. "[A]nd individuals who have slandered me and stolen from me and physically threatened me and physically assaulted me are going to start doing their time, getting busted, getting caught."
In that same clip, Stapp attributes the "evil" he's faced to a "soul sickness" in America, saying, "We've taken God out of everything—we won't allow kids to pray to Christ or God in our public schools, but we sure will make allowances for Muslims and Hindus and Buddhists to have their freedom of religion."
On Wednesday, Stapp's estranged wife filed papers seeking a 60-day psychiatric hold on the musician, who she says has been hearing "phantom voices" and seeing paranoid visions "of people on fire." Earlier this month, police placed Stapp on a 72-hour hold after he was found on the side of a road "wasted, incoherent and rambling."
I'm going to step back and let God control everything from here on. I should have continued to do that before I allowed my hurt, frustration, and emotions take control and post those videos. All I can say is that the truth will set you (me) free, and I'm holding on to Jeremiah 29:11 and Isaiah 44:8. This is a test of faith, and I will NEVER give up or lose my faith. No matter what. This will be my last statement until after justice is served. Love to you all my friends.
