    Christianity Through the Eyes of Justin Bieber

    What if we told you that Justin Bieber is a lot like you and me? Yes. Justin Bieber. This guy:

     

    Beneath the flashy shades, the expensive clothes and the perfectly sculpted hair, there’s a human being—a human being who struggles with sin and temptation just like everyone else.

    Over the past few years, Justin has gotten into his fair share of trouble. (Okay. That may be an understatement. He’s gotten into A LOT of trouble.) However, one thing that’s remained consistent (in recent years) is his commitment to strengthening his relationship with God. Justin has made no secret of his faith. Just a few months ago, he posted this photo on Instagram for his millions of followers to see:

     

     

    “Developing my relationship with God has been the coolest thing I’ve experienced, to know that I’m not alone and I don’t have to live in fear.”

    Justin Bieber lives and operates in an environment that is full of temptation. Not only that, but he’s been in the public eye and has had access to millions of dollars since he was young. This only elevates that temptation. As a human being, it’s natural to succumb to all the pressure sometimes. But what we love most about Justin’s story is that he admits to being imperfect. He admits to being a sinner. He admits to needing God. Desperately. He seeks out spiritual mentors to guide him throughout his journey and to hold him accountable for his actions.

    The important thing to remember is that no one walking this earth is perfect. No one. However, if we open up our hearts to God, similarly to how Justin Bieber has, God offers us forgiveness in return.

     

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

     

    Justin’s story isn’t any different from our own (besides the millions and millions of dollars, of course). We all struggle. We all fall. We all strive to be better human beings, better siblings, better children of God. Although he’s made mistakes and will make more in the future, there’s still so much to be learned from his journey. Here’s a man who’s been placed on a pedestal that opens him up to all kinds of temptation and ridicule. Yet still, he’s able to humbly bow down to God and boldly profess his dedication to his faith and his Father. Yes, he will stumble and fall along the way. But don’t we all?

    What Justin needs most during this time is support, love and understanding. At the end of the day, he’s just another one of God’s lost children trying to find his way home.

    1. Justin is always posting about God, and he’s always posting scriptures, which is awesome! I always see them on his Instagram.
      He does seem to send mixed messages with some of the things he does/says, however, It’s not up to me to judge him. Anywho, it’s neat that he still believes in God despite all of the fame.

    2. My thoughts on Justin:
      Justin is a sinner just like the rest of us. That’s a fact. He posts pictures and says things that suggest that he is, in fact, a Christian. But then, his music, actions, and music videos do not support his claims (in my opinion.) It is not my place to judge him, so the best I can do is pray for him. (And enjoy some of his better music) 😉
