In an interview for the story, the singer offers comments about the Almighty, focusing, in part, on his personal journey of turning to God to make his paths straight.

"I came to a place where I just was like, ‘God, if you’re real, I need you to help me, because I can’t do this on my own. Like, I’m struggling so hard. Every decision I make is out of my own selfish ego,'" Bieber told GQ. "So I’m just like, ‘What is it that you want from me? ... What is the point of everything? What is the point of me being on this planet?'"

The singer eventually came to make sense of Christianity, and explained how he now interprets the role of faith — and God — in his life.

"He is grace. Every time we mess up, He’s picking us back up every single time. That’s how I view it," Bieber said. "And so it’s like, ‘I made a mistake. I won’t dwell in it. I don’t sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better.'"

The singer also addressed other topics of importance, including celebrity pastors and the unfortunate elements that can sometimes come into play when fame and the pastorate mix.

And it’s basically, church can be surrounded around the man, the pastor, the guy, and it’s like, ‘This guy has this ultimate relationship with God that we all want but we can’t get because we’re not this guy,'" Bieber said. "That’s not the reality, though. The reality is, every human being has the same access to God."
