(PROTESTIA) – Unnamed sources are coming out of the woodwork claiming that Justin Bieber is studying to become a minister with Hillsong Church, with Daily Mail, Ok Magazine, and others reporting that he plans to become ordained in 2021.
Given that there are no names attached to the piece, only "sources close to the singer" alleging that "Justin has never felt happier or healthier, and he says he owes it to the church. [He] believes he can take a leadership position in restoring order," referring to Hillsong NYC and the aftermath of disgraced Pastor Carl Lentz's adulterous joyride taken right through the heart of the congregation, the whole thing is a non-starter.
The fact this is so believable is the real story, however. We can see Hillsong giving him the keys to the kingdom. Bieber is active on social media making consistent professions of faith, inviting a variety of pastors on to give the gospel, and talking a lot about Jesus and his relationship with him. He is a member of Hillsong Choir and has led worship at pal Judah's Smith Churchome, as well as has preached from the pulpit.
