Tauren Wells Talks Culture and Convictions: ‘Choose to Be Bold’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Christian artist Tauren Wells turned to Instagram on Thursday to answer a critical question about personal priorities: “Culture or convictions?”

“I’ve been asking my self lately, what am I bound to? Popularity, promotion, politics, preferences, or principles? What’s going to determine the direction of my, life’s external pressure or my internal principles? Culture or convictions?” the artist wrote.

“Culture says, you don’t want to cultivate a loving relationship with your wife, go find someone else. You wanna get ahead in business, take some short cuts. You wanna look better than everyone else on the job, take the credit for what you didn’t do. You wanna be more popular with a certain group at school, skip the church event for the party,” he said.

Wells knows that these selfish shortcuts will not fulfill but what God desires will.

“OR you can choose to be bold, an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. The bold are bound to the spirit, full of the spirit, and led by the spirit,” he continued.

“Bold convictions aren’t necessarily loud convictions, they’re deep convictions,” he concluded.

Wells talked about conviction previously when he highlighted what makes a great leader. He said, “If you’re a leader without conviction, you’ll never lead from clarity.”

Ready to put his own words into practice, Wells plans to become a pastor.

Movieguide® reported:

“I was practicing piano,” Wells recalled when their dream began. “And a professor came into my school and said, ‘Tauren, are you called to preach?’ I said, ‘Yes, Sir, I think I am.’ He said, ‘Don’t get too wrapped up in the music.’ I now understand that the full assignment has not been songwriting and performing; the rest of the essay is still yet to be written.”

He continued, “There’s a moment where I saw the verse in Revelation 2:17 that said ‘To the one who overcomes, I will give a white stone with the name engraved on it that only they know,’ and that word ‘white stone’ leapt off the page and it was when I was really dreaming about this.”

A few years later, he and Lorna were traveling through Austin, Texas, when the couple received a sign.

“We were driving up to where our family vacations and we crossed Whitestone Blvd., and we were in the car with her cousin Clayton and we were driving past this rock quarry and he pointed to the rock quarry and he said that’s where they dig out all of the Texas limestone,” the musician explained. “And that limestone is called white stone, he said. Georgetown is built on a white. Austin is built on white stone. Liberty Hill is built on white stone…We believe that your life is built on a white stone.”

The Christian Post reported that Wells’ church “is set to open next spring, as a place where people will discover their ‘God-authored identity through the wholehearted relationship with Jesus.’”
