For weeks Justin Bieber has been expressing
some unsettling feelings he has been having,
but one worship song puts him in a better
“This song puts my heart and soul at ease,”
Bieber captioned a screenshot of the Bethel Music song “No Longer Slaves.”
The post comes days after Bieber spoke out
against the inauthenticity of the Billboard Music
Awards where he performed.
“I don’t feel good when I’m there nor after. I
try to think of it as a celebration but can’t help
feeling like people are rating and grading my
performance,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m getting awarded for the things that I’m doing
and not for who I am which is understandable
I know it would probably be hard to calculate
and award someone’s spirit lol. But When I do
get these awards the temptation of putting my
worth in what I do is so hard to fight!”
Before letting his fans know that “No Longer
Slaves” by Jonathan and Melissa Helser of
Bethel Music gives him peace, he revealed that
the song is in the top three of his iPod playlist.
Last year the 22-year-old Canadian pop singer
participated in a question-and-answer style interview for Cosmopolitan magazine’s
September issue called, “21 Things You Didn’t
There, he revealed that after Lil Wayne and
Drake, he listened to worship music frequently
on his iPod.
“Top three songs on my iPod: ‘Too Hollygrove
to Go,’ ‘Hollywood,’ ‘No Longer Slaves,'”
Bieber’s response reads in the Cosmopolitan article titled, “Justin Bieber Likes Watching
‘Scandal’ and 20 Other Things You Never Knew
Even before revealing that Bethel Music, which
consists of worship music artists coming out of
the Bethel Church in Redding, California, has
earned high placement in his iPod, Bieber has
been vocal about his Christian faith. Last year,
the R&B singer posted an Instagram of a video with himself, Hillsong NYC Pastor Carl Lentz and
Trinity Church pastor Rich Wilkerson singing a
worship song, “Awesome God,” which was
made popular by worship music group
Hillsong United from Hillsong Church.
He has also used the social media platform to
express his faith, including one Instagram post
last May where he quoted Psalms 43.
“Vindicate me, my god, and plead my cause
against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me from
those who are deceitful and wicked. Psalms
43,” Bieber wrote as a caption to him reading Pastor Lentz’s book, Occupy All Streets. “I’m not
religious nor do i think I have ANYTHING
figured out that’s why I call out on God to help
me through what I can’t do on my own.
In the post, Bieber went on to recognize how
cool developing his relationship with God has
become in his life.
“Developing my relationship with God has
been the coolest thing I’ve experienced, to
know that I’m not alone and I don’t have to
live in fear,” the singer wrote. “Never feel like
I’m pushing anything on u [sic] but sharing the
good news I’ve felt in my own life
