Justin Bieber shared a photo of him hanging out recently and talking about Christianity with Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz and his buddy Ryan Good.
Bieber wrote on his Instagram page:
“Me and my homies @ryangood24 and @carllentz at lunch talking bout our savior Jesus Christ”
Pastor Carl Lentz shared the photo himself, writing:
“Sure do love my friends @ryangood24 @justinbieber ..discussing things such as: sometimes it SEEMS like although all us ‘Christians’ live in GLASS HOUSES, people (especially social media “Christians”) still develop an uncanny propensity to be olympian level expert rock throwers and criticism/foolish judgement is far to prevalent..the TRUTH is that Jesus outweighs em all.. there is so much GOOD, so many GRACE FILLED/KIND/HUMBLE people in this world that our job is to simply ‘tune out the noise’ from the world and ‘turn up the volume’ on the voice from HEAVEN..life is GOOD when you can hear from GOD! #occupyallstreets #churchinthewild #leavemymanJBaloneandcleanupyourownife #shouldkeepyousobusy #loveyoueitherway #twerk?”
Lentz is apparently defending Bieber from online criticism, as he was sure to add some key hashtags, like “Leave my man JB alone and clean up your own (l)ife.” Although he “love you either way” and…something about “twerk(ing)” for whatever reason.

Notably absent from the photo is City Church Pastor Judah Smith from Seattle, who is apparently Bieber’s “pastor.” (check out: Justin Bieber Shouts Out His Pastor Judah Smith, New Book “Jesus Is”)
Bieber’s photo of himself and Pastor Carl Lentz, who regularly hangs out with celebrities it seems, has been “liked” more than 800K times.
