When Justin Bieber first hit the music scene at age 13, his mother often discussed the family’s close connection to God and religious beliefs. But in recent years, his religious upbringing has been pushed to the backburner as the Biebs has made headlines for his wild antics and on-again-off-again relationship with Selena Gomez.
Now, in a new video, Bieber is once again showing his devotion to Christianity.
Bieber appears at the end of a rap video posted by Christian musician Brandon Burke and he is seen discussing God and Jesus Christ.
"God loved the world so much he gave up his own son, right?" Bieber says in the video. "Imagine, like, someone killing your son.
“Like a bunch of people killing your [son]," he adds passionately. "These are your people, right? It’s like, 'How are you killing my son? That’s my son!' It’s gonna be hard for you to forgive.”
He then adds, “God forgave everyone and they killed his son. That shows how much grace God has."
Some Beliebers turned to Twitter to show their appreciation for the singer’s religious thoughts.
