Justin Bieber is not ashamed of the gospel…
He has been proclaiming openly how Jesus saved him from darkness and transformed his life.
“I was just living in this shame, living in all this sort of stuff in my past and I wasn’t able to move on,” he said. “… [Now] the way I look at my relationship with God and with Jesus is I’m not trying to earn God’s love by doing good things. God has already loved me for who I am, before I did anything to earn and deserve it. It’s a free gift by accepting Jesus and just giving your life to Him.”
“And what He did is the gift – the forgiveness is the thing that we look at, and you know. I’m going to worship You, God, because You gave me something good.’ And so you live that life of like, ‘I don’t want to cheat on my wife, not because it’s the right thing to do but because I don’t want to hurt her.’ See the difference there?”
Bieber has said, “I had really bad examples of Christians in my life, who would say one thing and do another. They were my direct example of who Jesus was.”
His faith began growing when, “I really looked at the character of who Jesus really was.”
“Jesus,” Bieber said, “found me in my dirt and pulled me out.”
