Justin Bieber is currently traveling with his “Purpose” tour, and has incorporated a noteworthy shirt into the collection of clothes he wears onstage. According to Relevant magazine, Bieber can be seen wearing a shirt with the words “Bigger Than Satan” written on the back.
The shirt comes from designer Jerry Lorenzo, whose brand “Fear of God” aims to express a different side of Christianity.
Lorenzo said, “I can’t imagine doing a clothing line to just make money and be cool if I’m not trying to inspire people… The Fear generation to me is this new generation of cool kids that believe in God and that are really the coolest kids at school or the coolest kids [period]. I don’t know if you did youth groups when you were a kid, but the Christian kids were always not as cool as the real cool kids at school. So now [I want to show] that, ‘No, we are the cool kids. We look cool and there’s some depth about us that is cooler than whatever is fleeting at this moment.’”
Bieber has recently become open about his Christian faith, after years of making headlines for breaking laws.
The pop star said in a September interview with Complex magazine, “I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus—I could never—I don’t want that to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind. If you believe it, he died for our sins.”
