An Open Letter To Justin Bieber About His Faith

Dear Justin Bieber,

I’m ecstatic to see what God is doing in your life. Nobody is too far from God’s grace, and your story is one of redemption and revitalization. Your influence is beyond anything most could imagine harnessing, and I’m beyond thrilled to watch you use that influence for the sake of your faith in Jesus. Sure, you’ve made mistakes along the way, but don’t we all? Nobody is perfect, and I would encourage you to keep fighting the good fight while constantly seeking after the grace and love of Jesus. He’s got you covered.

You may find criticism along the way, but those who truly love you will be the ones who are there for you through it all. Those who love you will continue pointing you towards the foot of the cross.

Repeatedly lean into God, your pastors and those who God has divinely put around you. Ignore the opinions of society and pop-culture and be who God created you to be—nobody else. Let Him be your guide. You have been called to something great, and I pray God continues to open up doors for you as you boldly share his name. Continue to do away with religion, and grab ahold of the all-consuming love of Jesus.

Here’s to a new you, and new season and a fresh start. Be bold, continue to stay faithful and remember that you have millions of people praying for you on a daily basis. Thank you for your boldness, courage and audacity to share the name of Jesus through your platform. Stay well my friend.


“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”—Joshua 1:9


“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 … You ever flicked on a channel and a late-night church show is on? Sometimes it’s like, “You better do this or you gon’ die and you gon’ burn in hell!” And you’re like, I don’t want anything to do with this. I’m the same way. 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 ostracized.

I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. 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. 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 … 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.”—Justin Bieber

  1. I agree with jarrid. From the words he used to describe his feelings towards life his spirit is awake. I hope the lad continues to ” listen ” cause he can certainly ” hear “.

  2. I will never get what people have against the concept of religion and church. First of all, the Godly concept of religion is to visit orphans and widows ( are you seriously against that?). Instead of trashing the concept we ought to teach people what religion means, in biblical terms. Second, God chose to manifest to the world through the church (the body of Christ) who are we to challenge that? I know Christians are not perfect. But neither are the people who point that out. But God’s power and grace are big enough to make us messengers of his kingdom. Again, we should be teaching people what Jesus had in mind when he chose us to show his power to the world. It is with good reason that the apostle Paul asks us not to stop congregating.

    1. I have to say that I completely understand that people have something against religion and church. I think that even when you read the Bible, religion is said to be a bad thing. Religion in the time of the New Testament, was when the Pharisees took it a bit too far. A lot too far, actually. As I have experienced, this happens in the current times as well.

      Christians are not perfect indeed, and neither am I. But religion is where we need to get our act together before we get to fit in. Religion is where you have to prove your worth. Faith, however, is where Jesus had already done it all. Faith is where there is grace, and abundantly so.

      Concerning church, I feel like God is going to start a movement where church is different then we’re used to. I strongly believe in coming together, sharing life and insights, worshiping God and helping each other. But for me, church is no longer that place. Small groups, or something alike, is where I get to do those things. Church, as I have experienced it, gave me the idea that I had to prove my worth. That they were watching me. That I couldn’t hang out with people who left church, even though I knew that they needed Jesus then, more than ever. This, to me, was religion, and not living, breathing faith, hope and love.

      I hope you understand what I mean :)

    1. Oooooh thought of that too…… one does wish JB well, but did he not jyst release that sexuall gross What do you mean vid a few weeks ago. The thing is one cannot have the best if both….. its either or….choose ye this day who you will serve. What are the fruits JB?

  3. I honestly hope that #JustinBiber is praying and spending time studying the Word. It is essential for our honest spiritual maturity and transformation to have the mind of Christ. Otherwise, he will be wobbling back and forth.

      1. Perhaps that person should help him understand the meaning of Church and Fellowship a little better, because he out in left field with his taco comparison.
