Justin ‘Believer’ Bieber to perform… from the pulpit
“Justin Bieber is planning a series of new performances… delivering sermons from the pulpit of his favourite church.
The pop brat claims to have turned over a new leaf after qualifying as a lay preacher following an intensive, three-month bible study course.
And he even wants to bring TV cameras into L.A.’s trendy Hillsong Church so he can preach to the masses and spread the good word as a part-time televangelist.
Bieber, who turns 21 next Sunday, has helped Hillsong become the first church in history to be signed by top Hollywood talent agency William Morris Endeavor.
The agency, whose megastar clients include Robert De Niro, Ben Affleck, John Travolta, Taylor Swift and Kanye West, is already reportedly negotiating a prime time small screen slot on Sundays with two networks.
And, to help boost ratings, The Bieb has offered to help the staff clergy by reading sermons and even appealing for donations on camera.
Hillsong is a Pentecostal church that was founded in Australia in 1983 by married pastors Brian and Bobby Houston and quickly achieved popularity through its pop-style worship music, selling more than 12 million Christian records worldwide.
It now draws 100,000 attendees to services in 11 countries every week, including at the Belasco Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, where keen devotee Bieber has brought several fellow celebrities.
These include his former girlfriend, 22-year-old singer Selena Gomez, High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens (26) and Glee star Lea Michelle (28), who has raved about Hillsong’s “amazing vibe”.
Bieber claims the church has “transformed” his life after two years of bad boy behaviour around the world that landed him in several legal scrapes and even punch-ups with rival stars like Orlando Bloom.
He said: “I’ve done a few things that might not have been the greatest. But I’m ready to own up to them.”
So lets recap on the key points;
- Justin over the last year or so has sought to get his life turned around, not any easy feat for anyone, particularly a young ,man in the spotlight like Justin
- He was supposedly baptised in some hotel pool with the ‘guidance; and instruction of Carl Lentz Hillsong’s New York pastor
- A year ago Justin was trying to get himself out of a pickle on possessing Marijuana, and damning drink driving offences.
- The ‘boy’ has been going to Judah Smith bible studies along with ex Selena Gomez, so everything looks like its turning around for Justin…?
But to jump from this to being a lay preacher after some 3 months ‘intensive’ bible course, is a huge ask.
To quote Neil Armstrong ‘one small step for a man. one giant leap..’ for all of Christiandom to believe he’s ready, beyond some small 20 min seminette. Paul the Apostle spent 3 years in the desert of Arabia unlearning all his rabbinical teaching , which was the foundation of his New Testament letters.
I mean how is Justin going to get past a few amens, and a ‘Praise the Lord’ with all the hype and screaming girls to teach anybody anything? Hillsong should be ashamed of once again ‘merchandising’ the gospel.
This is just more of the Celebrity Cult capitalizing on a supposed conversion of a vulnerable and still impressionable young man, who wouldn’t know if the book is for salvation or self help at this point!
He may be on top of alot of things, but certainly not preaching from a pulpit.

- All Seeing Eye
Faith in Christ is more than just a few outward observations. Let’s pray he finds the truth despite Hillsong’s best efforts
