Justin Bieber has been talking a lot about his Christian faith and saying he is changing the way he lives.
Singer uses concert as opportunity to preach to fans
Justin Bieber took an opportunity to share the word of God with his fans
The pop star put his words into action at a recent concert where, after performing songs from his new album, he used the stage time to talk about his relationship with God.
Bieber transformed his recent "Purpose" concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California into a megachurch service.
He sat down on a stool next to his pastor, Judah Smith, and, according to L.A. Times reviewer Mikael Wood, “more or less preached.”
"He talked about the importance of maintaining a positive spirit and surrounding himself with encouraging people," Wood narrates. "He credited his connection with God for helping him to get back on his feet after a string of widely publicised tabloid troubles. And when a fan in the audience — one of a dozen or so selected by the singer's team for a question-and-answer session — asked if he had any advice on how to get through a romantic breakup, he demurred, flashing a bit of the humility that every religious leader knows is crucial in establishing a bond with one's flock."
His new album, 'Purpose' finds the singer apologising for his supposed misdeeds. "In 'I'll Show You,' for instance, he's acknowledging that he's not perfect while angrily pointing out that perfection is an unreasonable demand.
