However, in recent times, 21-year-old, pop star has been in media highlights for speaking out publicly about his Christian faith. “I’m not religious. I, personally, love Jesus and that was my salvation. I want to share what I’m going through and what I’m feeling and I think it shouldn’t be ostracised.” Justin Bieber who is not only a singer but a songwriter hails from Canada. “I want it be inspirational,” he stated.
“I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind. If you believe it, he died for our sins.”
Moreover, he overtly stated his faith in Lord Jesus Christ saying, “We could take out all of our insecurities, we could take away all of the hurt, all the pain, all the fear, all the trauma. We have the greatest healer of all and his name is Jesus Christ. And he really heals. This is it. It’s time that we all share our voice. Whatever you believe, share it. I’m at a point where I’m not going to hold this in.”
“I think that everybody should get their chance to share what they’re doing or where their journey is headed. I actually feel better and more free now that I know what I can do and what I can’t do. My voice, I’m not gonna let it not be heard any more. I’m gonna use my voice for a reason,” he stated just recently.
