Teen heartthrob. Hairdo trendsetter. Adored. Hated. Canadian. Jesus follower?
Here he is in an article on a new book in which he opens up about his faith:
AP: One revelation is your religion and faith. How do you reconcile that with the temptations of Hollywood?
Bieber: Hollywood is … a scary place. There’s a lot going on, there’s a lot of bad things, but there’s also a lot of good things. I’m able to live my dream, I’m able to do a lot of good things. Basically, I don’t even consider religion. Like, I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins. I believe that I have a relationship and I’m able to talk to him and really, he’s the reason I’m here, so I definitely have to remember that. As soon as I start forgetting, I’ve got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I’m here.
As usual, if you’re looking for some good commentary on this revelation, check in with Mr. Acuff at Stuff Christians Like.
