Justin Bieber’s Pastor Reveals His Struggles in Shocking Tell-All
Justin has seen the light!
In passages obtained by Radar Online, he wrote:
“People always ask, ‘What’s it like talking about life and Jesus with Justin Bieber?’ I always say the same thing: ‘Matter of fact, he’s just like you. And just like me.’ We can’t connect on a money level: He has more. We can’t connect on a fame level: He’s known all over the world, while sometimes I’m not sure if my children even remember I’m their dad.”
Carl emphasized the fact that Justin is having trouble coping with his fame and notoriety. The opinion comes on the heels of Justin accidentally hitting a photographer with his truck while leaving a Hillsong service in July 2017.
Carl took it upon himself to baptize Justin into the church one night. Carl recounted:
“One cold January night in NYC, Judah (another pastor), Justin, and I had a really deep and real conversation about faith, about choices, and about surrender. Justin told us, as he always does, about the ups and downs of his calling and said, ‘I want to get baptized.’ We were both like, ‘Awesome. Great choice. We will hook that up. July sounds good, right?’ Justin said, ‘No, I mean like right now. I want to start fresh tonight.'”
At two a.m., the crew went to Carl’s friend Tyson Chandler’s apartment and completed the ceremony in the bathtub at around four a.m.
Dealing With Pain
Carl and his fellow pastor Judah feel that they can be a good influence on Justin because they share a common trait: they know what it’s like to feel lonely.
Carl explained in his self-help book that his actions and the actions of the young, embattled artist have led to disappointment with others and with themselves and that they can relate to each other on that level. Justin told his fans about his deep feelings of remorse and misery in a lengthy Instagram post on August 2, just after he canceled his remaining tour dates. “I have let my insecurities get the best of me at times. I let broken relationships dictate the way I acted toward people and the way I treated them! I let bitterness, jealousy, and fear run my life!” the “Sorry” singer wrote.
Carl may have helped Justin see the error of his ways which sent Justin of a journey of self-discovery. After meeting Justin at age 14, the pastor has gotten to watch the star grow and change while navigating the entertainment industry. Carl wrote, “If you became world famous at roughly thirteen and were thrown into a life of music, fame, money, good and bad people, how do you think you would do?”
All the Celebrities
Justin has been called the “Tom Cruise of Hillsong,” referencing Cruise’s status as the celebrity face of the Church of Scientology — though that movement has been outed as a dangerous finance-draining cult. Meanwhile, Hillsong NYC has a better reputation and has many big name supporters including model Hailey Baldwin and singer Vanessa Hudgens. Kourtney Kardashian has been a supporter of Hillsong, as we previously reported.
