Justin Bieber is trying to win back his fans, and this time, he's looking toward a higher power for some help. The singer recently turned to the Lord to convince the world that he’s not the racist he appears to be in some recently released videos.
In what at least seems like a poor attempt to fix his public image PR-wise, the Biebs apparently got “baptized” again recently in a friend’s bathtub by an NYC pastor.
According to TMZ, Pastor Carl Lentz spent an intense week doing Bible Study with Bieber in order for him to get a “clean slate” with God. Supposedly the actual event took place in a bathtub instead of a church because Bieber wanted some privacy about the matter. Uh huh.
I hate to be a Doubting Thomas, but it’s hard to believe that after one week of studying the Bible and being dipped in a friend’s bathtub that the Biebs is “reborn” again. He might be “reborn” PR-wise, but it’s doubtful that he’s otherwise changed. Using something that's so sacred to many for publicity purposes is not only insulting to his fans, but it also makes a huge mockery of religion, too.
If Bieber truly has been reborn, then good for him. Hallelujah! But we'll believe it when we see it ... not when the event he supposedly wanted private just so happens to leak on TMZ.
Do you think Justin Bieber's baptism was just for show?
