Justin Bieber has cleared his schedule to study the Bible.
The 20-year-old star, who was arrested for DUI [Driving Under the Influence] in Miami earlier this year and also charged with vandalising his former neighbour’s home with eggs in Calabasas, California, is reportedly staying at the Rancho Mirage close to Palm Springs, California for two weeks with his pastor, as he wants to firmly reconnect with his religious beliefs.
A source said the ‘Baby’ hitmaker, who recently split from his on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, is on a “mission” to learn how to spread the word of God and has exiled himself from his friends, alcohol and marijuana for the remainder of November.
The Canadian singer – who identifies himself as a Christian – was spotted outside the luxurious resort with the book ‘Occupy All Streets,’ which teaches how to resist bad temptations, on Monday (17.11.14), according to gossip website TMZ.com.
Justin has surrounded himself with spiritual mentors in recent months, including pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong New York City, who previously insisted he is a “good kid” despite his bad behaviour.
He told CBN in August: “With Justin, it’s not my job to be his police officer. It’s my job to be a friend to him, and that’s all I am.”
Justin also frequently attended pastor Judah Smith’s Bible study at the City Church in Los Angeles with the ‘Heart Wants What It Wants’ hitmaker Selena, 22, over the summer.
