Justin Bieber’s New Song Champions Gospel Message, Condemns Cancel Culture
By Movieguide® Staff
Outspoken Christian Justin Bieber surprised fans with a new Gospel EP on Easter Sunday that shares the Gospel message.
In “Afraid to Say,” one track of six on the new album titled “Freedom.,” Bieber champions the need for biblical compassion and bashes current cancel culture.
The 27-year-old artist, who is candid about how God has redeemed him despite his past mistakes, encouraged others to question society.
“What have we done with society when everybody’s getting canceled? And can’t there be room for maturity? ’Cause writing ’em off is not the answer,” the lyrics read.
In the chorus, Bieber sings: “Does what I gotta say even matter? / Is life about climbing up the ladder? / And can we even see lives that are shattered?”
Toward the end of the song, Bieber notes how God’s love differs from culture.
“We can’t write people off. God never writes us off, even in our darkest days. Even when we least deserve it. Even when we’re doing that stupid thing we wish we weren’t doing,” Bieber says in the song. “God never writes us off — ever. He’s with us in our pain. He’s with us in a struggle. He’s with us in our bad decisions. He’s with us all the time. He never writes us off.”
The song concludes with Lauren Walters reciting Psalm 139:13-16.
“You formed the whole of me, inward and out,” Walters said. “I am awesomely and wonderfully created. Your creations are spectacular. You skillfully designed me. You saw the Essenes of me, before I was formed. Before I existed, all of my days were written in your book.”
Bieber is far from the only celebrity to call out the cancel culture plaguing society right now.
Ricky Gervais, Rowan Atkinson, Kristy Swanson, Dean Cain, Bill Maher, and Bryan Cranson have all spoken out against cancel culture.
