Justin Bieber is letting the world know that he is bigger than Satan with the help of his Purpose Tour clothing designer Jerry Lorenzo.

Lorenzo is the founder of the clothing line called Fear Of God which fuses Christian faith and grunge culture from the '90s. According to Lorenzo, Bieber sought out the designer to create pieces for his Purpose Tour like the one shirt with a picture of rock singer Marilyn Manson on the front and the words "Bigger Than Satan" sprawled on the back.

"Man, my tour is coming up. I really want you to do it," Lorenzo recalled Bieber telling him in a WWD report.

However, the Christian designer insists he does not create his clothes to achieve fame and fortune. Instead, he wants to showcase Christianity in a cool unorthodox way.

"I can't imagine doing a clothing line to just make money and be cool if I'm not trying to inspire people," he previously told Hype Beast. "I try to do it in a subtle way, sometimes through scriptures that we put up on our Instagram, like instead of Matthew 16:24 it would be the 40th book 40 16-24 – so you're not really sure, unless you know the Bible, where that passage is coming from. So it's just giving people bits and pieces."

The designer has branded his clothing into a movement called The Fear generation, which seems to have caught the attention of Bieber, in an effort to present a different side of Christian culture.

"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]," he said. "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, 'we look cool and there's some depth about us that is cooler than whatever is fleeting at this moment.'"

The clothing line designer centers his themes around a fear of God that he explains through the lens of his Christian beliefs.

"This fear of God is not one that cripples you, it's simply a fear of not knowing, and thus going out to find the answers. God is all knowing, but he is greater than any obstacle in your way, and he is on your side," Lorenzo previously told GQ. "Even in times that are beyond your understanding, there's a peace in knowing there is a God that is bigger and more all-knowing than not only you, but anyone. That's the Fear Generation."
