In a recent Interview with Justin Bieber by Complex Magazine, he likens church attendance to dropping by a Taco Bell. In the interview he explains how Christians are viewed as “overly pushy with the subject, overly churchy and religious.” Bieber says he has a deep love of Jesus and wants to live his life as if he is Jesus. But it’s the part where he talks about imperfect Christians that he dismisses certain perceptions with this explanation.  Beiber goes on to say:

“Christians leave such a bad taste in people’s mouths, even myself. I was like, I’m not gonna go to church. I had these church friends and I was like, you guys are cool, I like you guys, but I’m not going to church. Then it was the same thing of, just because you went to a weird church before doesn’t mean that this is weird. It doesn’t make you a Christian just by going to church. I think that going to church is fellowship, it’s relationship, it’s what we’re here on the earth to do, to have this connection that you feel there’s no insecurities. I think that’s where we need to be. Like I said, you don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco.” Source
