Justin Bieber tweeted an impassioned Easter message to his fans yesterday.
“JESUS HAS CHANGED MY LIFE,” Bieber began his post. “EASTER IS NOT ABOUT A BUNNY, ITS A REMINDER THAT MY JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS AND THEN ROSE FROM THE DEAD DEFEATING DEATH!” He added, “I am set free from bondage and shame, I am a child of the most high God and he loves me exactly where I am, how I am, for who I am.”
He then posted a pic wearing a pair of Easter bunny sunglasses and holding a stuffed bunny.
“Remember when i said easter isnt about bunnies…” Bieber wrote in a second Instagram post. “well i lied.”
For the last two years, Bieber has attended services by the Hillsong Church, a global Pentecostal church that originated in Australia.
It has been claimed that his forthcoming fifth album will reflect the “redemption” he has experienced during his time with the church.
Justin is on the lookout for songs which really reflect where he is in his life in terms of spirituality,’ a source told The Sun.
“He has always been religious but the last two years have seen him grow closer to the Hillsong Church and it has changed his entire life. He has a totally different outlook now.”
