Pop Star, Justin Beiber, who has continued to be the subject of controversies over the past few years, seems to be finally down at cross roads.
His life has been defined by repeated arrests, scandals which has taken his image to the bleachers, so this public attempt to soften his image and reboot his career is not lost on us all.
During an interview with Complex Mag, the 21-year-old pop
superstar shared the source of his redemption: Christianity. “I just wanna honestly live like Jesus,”, he quipped.
Bieber told Complex in a lengthy cover story.
“Not be Jesus – I could never – I don’t want that to come across weird. 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.”
The singer clarified that he’s “not religious,” as he’s bothered by the really weird stuff going on at churches and the holier-than-thou attitude of certain Christians.
But he emphasized that his life has been transformed by faith.
“We have the greatest healer of all, and his name is Jesus Christ,” he said. “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.”
The key to being Christian, Bieber said is having “this connection that you feel there’s no insecurities” – not simply enjoying fellowship at church.
He also used an unorthodox analogy to drive home his point: “You don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco.”
