Why Justin Bieber thanked Jesus on Instagram

The pop singer Justin Bieber posted about his love of being a Christian on social media on Friday. 

The Canadian star, who attends a Hillsong church, thanked God for his unconditional love. 

Bieber wrote: "I love making music, creating art that gives people joy! I love following the plans god has for me! I love walking with Jesus as he leads me into green pastures! 

"I love that Jesus gave his life so that l can now walk in freedom! I'm thankful that god loved me far before I did anything to earn or deserve it! Which is why I am honoured to spend my life giving him the RECOGNITION AND PRAISE HE DESERVES !! Thank you for loving me at my worst! YOU ARE A GOOD GOD !! Thank you Jesus!!"

 

 

He posted as his wife Hailey Bieber, daughter of the Christian actor Stephen Baldwin, wrote a long post about cruelty on social media after receiving unkind comments from fans of Selena Gomez, who used to date Justin Bieber. 

Hailey wrote: "I love to connect, I do my best to expose my heart which means I love freely and I empathize deeply, and because of that I also hurt very easily when I feel like people don’t see my heart and see me for who I am and the reason I’m even sharing this, is because Instagram, Twitter etc is SUCH a breeding ground for cruelty towards each other, and because people don’t take the time to connect with each other on an honest level before they resort to hatred, it starts to damage what could be really beautiful human interaction and connection. 

"I could sit here all day and say the hate doesn’t bug me, that the words that are said don’t affect me. But NEWS FLASH: it hurts to be torn apart on the internet!!! It hurts to be compared to other human beings every single day, it hurts for people to jump to conclusions and make assumptions. It hurts to be called names, and to feel like you don’t measure up to a certain standard.. the list goes on and on. I share this only because it weighs often on my heart and because it’s important to be honest about how these things affect us mentally and emotionally. Hopefully it speaks to someone struggling with the same."

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I would say my most favorite part of existing is human connection. I absolutely love connecting with other people, I love finding common interests between me and others, hearing people’s story, I love laughing with others, and I love crying with others. I feel so very very deeply. My heart explodes with happiness when my friends and family are happy and my heart feels crushed when they are hurting and sad. The reason I say all of this is: because I love to connect, I do my best to expose my heart which means I love freely and I empathize deeply, and because of that I also hurt very easily when I feel like people don’t see my heart and see me for who I am and the reason I’m even sharing this, is because Instagram, Twitter etc is SUCH a breeding ground for cruelty towards each other, and because people don’t take the time to connect with each other on an honest level before they resort to hatred, it starts to damage what could be really beautiful human interaction and connection. I could sit here all day and say the hate doesn’t bug me, that the words that are said don’t affect me. But NEWS FLASH: it hurts to be torn apart on the internet!!! It hurts to be compared to other human beings every single day, it hurts for people to jump to conclusions and make assumptions. It hurts to be called names, and to feel like you don’t measure up to a certain standard.. the list goes on and on. I share this only because it weighs often on my heart and because it’s important to be honest about how these things affect us mentally and emotionally. Hopefully it speaks to someone struggling with the same. with that being said Happy New Year. Let’s connect more in 2020 :)
