Now that’s one hell of a purpose!
But it looks like salvation may be on the horizon, as new reports claim the singer might be taking some time off to focus on his faith — and possibly even start his own church!
That’s right. The Church of Bieber — or, if he wants to go more contemporary, Biebertology — could actually be a reality.
Never one to be shy about talking faith, the Biebs has become more and more vocal about his religious affiliations these days.
Last month, he attended a conference for Hillsong, a Pentecostal megachurch based in Sydney, and afterward sat down alongside hipster pastor Carl Lentz to talk worship, professing:
“My faith grows every day, so my faith is stronger than two years ago; better, wiser, kinder.”
Well, insiders are now saying the 23-year-old might actually be working to take his Beliebers to a higher ground with a church of his own. A source told Australia’s Today Extra:
“I am led to believe that the real reason he’s come off the road is because he wants to reconnect with his faith and maybe even planning to start his own Church. Whether he’s looking at teaming up with [Hillsong]… or starting his own church, we’re not quite sure… That’s the word from an inside source.”
Wow. Move over, Tom Cruise!!!
While we admit this is pretty farfetched, these spirited claims do have some merit.
Bieber has been closely linked with Lentz, a rock star within the Hillsong church, as of late. The preacher joined the singer on the road during his Purpose tour and has been popping up ALL over Biebs’ Instagram:

The hitmaker confessed he canceled his tour due to some much needed rest, and his manager Scooter Braun responded to upset fans saying Justin’s “soul and well being” came first.
We’ll see if Bieber will use this time off to start saving the souls of his disciples.
