Pop superstar Justin Bieber has been through many ups and downs, and has famously faced some hard times. Recently, Bieber has undergone a dramatic transformation and has returned to his Christian faith. As reported by numerous media outlets including Charisma news, he has had some powerful faith experiences, and is being discipled by two pastors from Hillsong Church, a movement that reaches millions of young people around the world.
Here are some quotes on faith from a recent interview he gave:
"At this point, my faith has gotten me to where I am. My faith has brought me to a whole other level. I love talking about my faith. I think that with Christians, they’ve left such a bad taste in people’s mouths. Just like, overly pushy with the subject, overly churchy and religious.
"I think that people, as soon as they start hearing me saying I’m a Christian, they’re like, 'Whoa Justin, back up, take a step back.' Also, I do not want to shove this down anyone’s throat. I just wanna honestly live like Jesus."
“…he died for our sins. Sometimes when I don’t feel like doing something, but I know it’s right, I remember, I’m pretty sure Jesus didn’t feel like going to the cross and dying so that we don’t have to feel what we should have to feel. What Jesus did when he came to the cross was basically say, 'You don’t have to feel any of that stuff.' 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. That doesn’t need to be there. So all this healing that you’re trying to do, it’s unnecessary. 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."
Now, Bieber is sharing his faith in his music. In an album preview he posted to Instagram, he sings about the power of prayer.
