Justin Bieber is asking for forgiveness after a second video of the troubled singer using racist slurs surfaced on Wednesday (04Jun14) by posting Bible verses online. Just days after the Baby hitmaker apologised for telling a racist joke and using the 'N-word' in an old clip from when he was 15, another four-year-old video features Bieber changing the words to his hit One Less Lonely Girl to One Less Lonely N**ger and making references to notorious race hate group, the Ku Klux Klan. In response to the leak of the second video, obtained by TMZ.com, Bieber posted text from Sarah Young's book Jesus Calling on his Instagram.com page instead of a written apology. It reads: "When your sins weigh heavily upon you, come to Me. Confess your wrong doing, which I know all about before you say a word. Stay in the Light of My Presence, receiving forgiveness, cleansing, and healing... Whenever you stumble or fall, I am there to help you up. "Man's tendency is to hide from his sin, seeking refuge in the darkness. There he indulges in self-pity, denial, self-righteousness, blaming and hatred. But I am the Light of the world, and My illumination decimates the darkness. Come close to Me and let My Light envelop you, driving out darkness and permeating you with Peace." The image also linked to three passages from the New Testament. Less than 10 minutes before Bieber's post, his manager, Scooter Braun also cryptically addressed the controversy on the photo sharing site, posting the image of text which read: "Some mistakes have no excuses. They are just wrong. But how a man reacts to those mistakes... How he owns it and learns from it... That defines him more than the mistake itself."
