Apostasy in the News
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first..."
2 Thessalonians 2:3

Worldly artist Justin Bieber considered "Christian" by "Christian" media without forsaking sin
Charisma magazine, a supposed "christian" publication, has compiled an article that supports the Canadian Super Star and worldly artist Justin
Bieber as a true born again Christian, inspite of clear evidence to the contrary. In their recent article entitled, "Justin Bieber Leads 98 Million Instagram Followers in Worship" reveals their
serious compromise in promoting the justification of the wicked, and a false christianity.
"Singer/songwriter Justin Bieber sang a heartfelt rendition of the worship song "Reckless Love" on his Instagram story Monday night.
"Oh, the overwhelming, never ending reckless love of God. Oh, it chases me down, fights till I'm found, leaves the 99 ... There's no shadow you won't light up, mountain you won't climb up, running after me," Bieber sang.
The song was originally written by Corey Asbury, a worship pastor for Bethel Music.
Yet, its message of God's deep love for his creation was enough to make Bieber ditch his usual pop tunes for a moment of worship.
This is the latest example of how the singer has turned his large social media platform into a pulpit. A source close to him says his next album, which is expected to be released late this year or in early 2019, is going to focus on his faith.
A source close to the singer told The Sun: "He has always been religious but the last two years have seen him grow closer to the Hillsong Church and it has changed his entire life. He has a totally different outlook now." (1)
The fact that Charisma magazine suggests that Justin Bieber has turned his social media platform into a pulpit is not only a complete disgrace to the Lord Jesus Christ, but clear blasphemy.
This new pulpit, like most in North America, and other first world nations, is a pulpit that leads precious souls to hell and not to heaven (Matthew 7:13-23).
The Bible clearly teaches that one cannot love this world of sin, and love the Lord Jesus Christ at the same time. The Bible clearly teaches, "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God" (James 4:4).
Justin Bieber is not only a friend of this perverse world of sin, he is one of the major producers of ungodly music, and wicked influences in the world. While he has performed perverse ungodly music in the past, he continues to do so. He recently performed the perverse song, "Despacito"
which is a song sung in Spanish that promotes the sin of fornication. It is "...a reggaeton and Latin pop song composed in common time with lyrics about having a sexual relationship, performed in a smooth and romantic way." (2)
Is this the worship that is acceptable unto the Lord Jesus Christ? Is this true Christianity? While it may be the
defiinition of Christianity amoung most today in first world countries, it is certainly not the true Christianity as revealed in the Holy Scriptures (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). This form of false christianity that refuses to repent of sin, and truly trust the Lord Jesus Christ by faith alone for salvation, will tragically lead Justin Bieber and others
to an eternity in hell (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Revelation 21:8).
Justin Bieber has unfortunately been lead astray by his Pastor Carl Lentz of Hill Song NYC, who not only has refused to preach the true gospel to him (2 Corinthians 4:1-4; 2 Timothy 4:1-4), but has also engaged in sinful activity by drinking alcohol with the Super Star (Proverbs 20:21; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11). (3)
He has also
been led astray by the so called, "christian" media, and a multitude of so called "christians" who not only fail to rebuke him, but also see no error in his love for sin, due to the fact that they also demonstrate the same love for this ungodly world, that will also lead them to eternal damnation (James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17).
While it is our prayer and desire that Justin Bieber and others will truly repent and be saved, is this not just one more clear sign of apostasy as prophesied
in the Word of God?
Yes, it absolutely is!
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
