Hello, hello, hello. This has been on my chest for quite a few days now, and I really want to share my frustration. Hehe. You know Justin Bieber, right?
He has his obvious fans, and his obvious haters. Well done Justin on having so many fans. But the hating on him seem extremely unjustified. From what I see, the people who “hate” him don’t have any particular reason to, but just say that he’s an “annoying homo”, as someone at my school called him. So, what? Because everybody hates him, does that mean you can’t like him, even a bit? Although I’m not a massive fan of Justin Bieber, I don’t hate him. I’m leaning towards the “likers” though, because his music is cool. But this isn’t all about Justin Bieber. Once upon a time, you could go your own way without being criticised for it. You could freely say you hated the latest movie even though all your friends were raving about it. It was fine if you liked classical music despite your friends preferring rock.
This reminds me of a ‘SpongeBob Squarepants’ episode – “The Sponge Who Could Fly”. Even though nobody supported him, SpongeBob pursued with his dream to fly. He went against the crowd and wasn’t afraid to do so.
Caught in the Crowd is a touching song by Kate Miller-Heidke. It is about befriending a lonely boy at school (James) but then following the crowd and betraying him.
If you don’t have the time to watch the video, the chorus is:
I was young and Caught in the Crowd
I didn’t know then what I know now
I was dumb, and I was proud, and I’m sorry.
If I could go back and do it again, I’d be someone you could call friend.
Please please believe that I’m sorry.
The Bible says to get to Heaven you need to follow the path that is straight and narrow. Do not get transformed by this world, follow God in all his ways. Friends are great, but they can, at times, be a bad influence. If your friends are into drinking, doing drugs, swearing, remember; do not get caught in the crowd. Do not be afraid to go your own way.
