Pop star Justin Bieber has defended himself after some fans accused him of comparing himself to God on social media.
Bieber shared a photo of himself from earlier this week sleeping with his dog and the caption: “and on the 7th day […]”
The young pop star then received a rash of criticism from some who thought the musician was comparing himself to God in Genesis 2:2, which reads: “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work” (NIV).
Bieber clarified his intent on Instagram on Thursday, writing: “AND MY GOODNESS I WAS MAKING A REFERENCE, I AM NOT COMPARING MYSELF TO GOD IM THE FARTHEST THING FROM!!!! IT WAS MY WAY OF SAYING HOW IMPORTANT REST IS.. WHEN THERE IS NOTHING TO PICK AT ME FOR YOU MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING BUT I GET IT YOU NEED RATINGS AND TRACTION YOUR BLOGS. But if truthfully if you were offended it was in no way shape or form me comparing myself to the most high.”
