Trivializing Faith
14 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They trivialized belief in God. How can you compare the importance of being a follower of Justin Bieber to being a follower of God? It was hardhearted to say it's fine not to believe in God. What about hell? We should care about our family's souls! Tim Tom was heartless! How can you stop trying to save someone from hell? From eternal torture? There are no consequences when I don't like Justin Bieber's music but when I do not believe in God the consequence is so monumental that it's scary to think about. This episode was crappy. It does not matter to God if I listen to Justin Bieber's songs but it matters to God if you reject his existence.
