Justin Bieber Shares Religious Rant
Justin Bieber revealed Thursday that he continues to struggle with his mental health by posting a rambling religious missive on Instagram.
“I havent believed the truth about myself I haven’t believed I am loved I haven’t believed I am forgiven,” the Canadian singer wrote in a message full of spelling errors and missing punctuation. “it’s a hard thing for me to wrap my head around. I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadnes about the the people who have betrayed me.”
The rest of the message, which was accompanied by a black-and-white photo of the 25-year-old, is Bieber prosthelytizing.
The Ontario native is a follower of the evangelical Hillsong Church.

Don’t stop fighting the battle has already won.. fight for what you love and who you love don’t let fear and anxiety win..god has not given us a spirit of fear but of power love and of a sound mind! I havent believed the truth about myself I haven’t believed I am loved I haven’t believed I am forgiven it’s a hard thing for me to wrap my head around. I hang my head in shame and I wallow in sadnes about the the people who have betrayed me. Jesus has given me freedom and the persuit of getting to know his character is never ending. Gods character never changes he is the same yesterday now and forever. He is always good!. I won’t be afraid to be vulnerable before him.. his power is made strong in our weakness. God isn’t afraid of your pain and your brokenness he actually welcomes it. Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest! these are words from Jesus! There is hope and it’s in him.!! He loves and cares for you! For god so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes him wont die but have eternal life! You are that whoever and he accepts you as you are!! He loves and forgives you and welcomes you into his arms every time you mess He is a perfect and loving god who adores you!
In an Instagram story, Bieber caption a photo of he and Ed Sheehan: “Crippled with anxiety.” (The pair this week teased an upcoming collaboration.) Bieber also shared: “I’m getting there one day at a time.”
Bieber revealed on Instagram in late March that he was taking time away from music to take care of his mental health. “I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have,” he wrote, “so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.”
Last month, he made a surprise appearance on stage during Ariana Grande’s Coachella set to lip-sync his hit “Sorry.”
