He has as much to do with the real Jesus as Prince does or Madonna. If he wants to change his life he needs to shut his mouth, leave the music world and come back in 10 years and then start talking. He is doing no good service talking about Jesus in his present state.
I wasn't expecting him to understand particilar redemption, I don't think you were either.
I feel the caution for the reformed community lies in seeing so many false conversions and all the heresy going round that leads to false conversions, but of we follow our doctrine we must follow it all the way through; God's soverignty in salvation, and we should fasten on to hope in conversions as a result and not have a bitter sceptisism
Like the others we hear of, I.hope iit's genuine as well. This kid though, is bad news, arrogant beyond belief, and it wasn't until his fan base began disappearing and his publicist telling him he needed emergency image repair that he suddenly, like so many others, found Christ. I know this kid as well as anyone can be known from a distance, along with all he has said, done, and his general style and personality and this doesn't hit home with me at all, nkt to mention hisspiritual advisor looks like his very troubled roomate and best friend. I have just seen so many use Christ as a tool to garner forgiveness and soften hearts, but when the endgame has been accomplished, it's business as usual once again.
Of course, I hope he's genuine, but if he's not and simply using Christ to get his sales and popularity back up, well...
From the article: God forgave everyone and they killed his son," Bieber said in the video. "That shows how much grace God has."
When did God forgive everyone? I was under the impression that only those that repent and put their faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for salvation are forgiven. Perhaps he is a universalist. Anyways, he may play the part, but I seriously doubt he is saved judging by his lack of understanding of Scripture, and his reprobate lifestyle. Let us pray God leads him to true salvation.
