What do you think of Justin Bieber's analogy for Christianity?

“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.”

He is a fucking idiot.

It’s a play on an older adage that goes as follows:

“Sitting on a church pew makes you a Christian just like standing in a garage makes you a Cadillac.”

The implication is that it takes more than church attendance to make one a Christian.

Anyone uttering such a phrase, ironically, is violating one of Jesus’s few direct orders, that being to judge not.

It’s true, though. To be a Christian, you only have to be a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

I would not put any faith in anything Justin Bieber had to say.

As inspirational as a potato.

I’m fine with it. I don’t think someone has to attend church to be a Christian. I think accepting Christ as your savior and identifying as a Christian makes you a Christian.

Well he has a point about the taco thing I suppose.

Not particularly original. I’ve heard that analogy before. I think it’s his excuse for not going to Church and I suppose it’s as good as any other. If you don’t want to go, then don’t go.

He’s young and still finding himself so I’m not looking to JB for any thought provoking substance or outlook in life.

He only recently saw fit to apologize for being a total jackass for the last several years so at least he’s growing up and maturing. He has a long way to go in that regard :)
