'Mrs. Bieber' Avalanna Routh dies at age 6
Avalanna Routh, a brave 6-year-old whose adoration of pop star Justin Bieber earned her the nickname "Mrs. Bieber," has lost her fight against cancer.
"Our darling Avalanna went to Heaven this morning. Oh Avalanna, the brightest star - you took our hearts with you, our greatest Love," was posted to her Twitter account early Wednesday.
Routh had a rare, aggressive form of brain cancer called AT/RT, which was explained during the "Stand Up To Cancer" benefit in September:
As Routh sought treatment at a Boston facility last year, the nurses there decided to throw the Bieber fan a pretend wedding. She tied the knot with a cutout of the 18-year-old singer, and she soon had the chance to meet her "husband" in person.
Bieber flew Routh and her parents to New York in February for a pre-Valentine's Day date that included board games and cupcakes. At the time, Bieber told his followers on Twitter that he was hanging out with "a special little girl, #MrsBieber."
Learning of Routh's passing on Wednesday, Bieber tweeted, "just got the worst news ever. one of the greatest spirits i have ever known is gone. please pray for her family and for her. RIP Avalanna. i love you."
He later added that he missed Routh, and shared a photo:

get the script off
You're really going to compare a forty seven year old woman who has had MORE than a chance to live her life, compared to a six year old girl who never got the chance? You should be ashamed of yourself. I don't even like Bieber and I am disgusted by you.
mrs.bieber was and is an important part of Justin and his fans we all adored her an we will miss her much and its sweet how he did that for her on her last year to live mr. and mrs.bieber will always be more important and sweeter than everthing ive ever heard bless Justin's heart and R.I.P MRS.BIEBER
I had a very hard case and you were my last hope after I went through your real website (www.prophetofgoddess.com). I had wasted loads of money with other spell casters but never had results..... I decided to use your most powerful Binding spell and it was the best investment I ever made. I am still surprised how you did what you did after two days I contacted you on (firstname.lastname@example.org), I will forever be grateful for what you did for me, right now we are living happily as never before. Your powers are real and you can consider me a client for life.

I am so sorry for the family and Justin i saw everybody with her name on hearts I will keep her in my heart
I am crying I wish she was still here but they got an angel in heaven 😭😭
can you come and see me in brusnville justin bieber i am your biggset fan ever!
The road divides here.How much money did you make?I'm full.Its origin is still a mystery now.What about you? He dreamed of traveling to remote South Sea Islands.How much? The doctor's words made him feel comfortable.I'll see to it.It's time for us to say ¡°No¡± to America
I don't even know how I ended up right here, however I believed this publish used to be great. I don't understand who you are but definitely you're going to a famous blogger should you aren't already. Cheers!
What a beautiful life you lived Avalanna. What a special and valiant girl. Thank you for sharing her story. She is beautiful in every way.
My 5 year old daughter loves Justin Bieber. I couldnt imagine losing her. Justin Bieber has a good heart and is very talented, dont forget.
According to Christianity, this child, just as all the rest of us, was born into sin. If this child did not accept Jesus Christ as her savior, she did not go to Heaven to be with God. I don't quite know how a 6 year old accepts Jesus Christ as their savior, since I doubt a 6 year old has a concept of what that even means. So, I don't understand how so many of these people can claim to know where this child went after her death. I find absolutely NO COMFORT in the death of a child this young by saying she went to Heaven. That isn't even what Christianity teaches, if you believe Christianity. Perhaps someone can explain all of these comments professing to know this child went to Heaven? Are you aware of her accepting Christ during her life? Or are you just assuming that God does not allow children to go to that other place? If the latter, then please explain where that is stated in the Bible on which you base your religion? I'm asking a serious question here, and I would like a serious answer, rather than reactionary angry posts indicating some level of offense at me questioning your beliefs.
The bible teaches that there is an age of accountability where an adult can understand sin. In the Old Test all the people over the age of 19 died in the wilderness. Those younger were not held accountable even though they had been alive when the children of Isreal had sinned. It makes me sick that someone claiming to be a Christian would take this opportunity to callously damn a little girl. You obviously do not know the God of the Bible and in my opinion do not represent Jesus well at all. People who are changed by Jesus end up treating others like he did, with love and compassion. Those who have experience great forgiveness are able to give great love. Maybe you dont even understand how much you have to be forgiven for.
My heart goes out to this little girls family who now have to cope with life without her vivacious, fighting spirit. I'm praying for them and for all the people whose lives will be forever changed by her loss...She is most certainly in heaven you arrogant s.o.b. 🙂
In 2 Samuel 12:23 King David's comments about the death of his baby boy with Bathsheba by saying, "I will go to him, but he will not return to me" This verse is one of the paramount verses in the scriptures that indicate that children and babies go to heaven when they die. There are other scriptures that testify to the mercy of God concerning his judgments. Ironically, many of them written by David himself, both before and after this event in his life.
Try reading the Bible for yourself. Start with the words in red..
We are worried about where her soul goes?
We do not pile up treasures on earth (material things, times you went to church, being baptized, being a good person) for being with god!
Get a life! People loved her and she loved BACK! That is certainly enough for me! This isn't a theology debate...we are celebrating her life!
YOU ARE AN IDIOT.....
I think what you are searching for is the fact that when you accept Christ as your Saviour, you have a change of heart. This change in your heart is brought about by the working of the Holy Spirit. How do you know that the Holy Spirit was not working in her heart? God can change hearts even until the last breath of life leaves your body. Children are loved by God as evidenced in scripture. We must come to Him like a child, with open heart, to accept the free gift of Grace. Avalanna lived a very difficult life with much grace as seen in the video. I have not doubt that she is in heaven. Prayers for the family during this difficult time.
I love everyone's responses to ucekrmanf, especially LSM, Jess Sayin, Mark and shelley. All Christians know that God is loving, holy, merciful, just, and gracious. Whatever He does is always right and good. All Christians that really know their religion also know that God does not punish those that are not yet at the age of accountability to accept or reject Christ. My Priest said we cannot for sure say that babies that die before being baptized go to Heaven, but since God is who is He is (which is Love), we can safely assume that they do.
I am so sad for Avalanna Routh, and her family. I hope you all can one day find peace.
i dont like his music,but i commend him for taking time with this child....
Love him, his music, and what he stands for. He IS a class act, and takes time for everyone. He was raised well, and if he keeps on this track, will go far!! Stay the way you are Justin, and you will be very successful in life.
This is heartbreaking. Poor thing at least she had her time to shine....
I just watched the video of this little beautiful girl and my heart feels sad. I did read a few comments and some of them are not very nice. I know she is in heaven with Jesus and running and playing with all the little children who God calls home at a young age and we really don't get it but He has a plan for everyone to be called to our heavenly home in His time. Prayers to her family and may God comfort them in the days and months ahead. I think knowing that this little girl is in heaven will comfort their hearts. This is why we should value each day on this earth with family and friends. LOVE is the greatest gift of all.
What an absolute doll. I think God wanted her with Him. This world is not good enough for a little angle like her.
we will miss you avalana you were the greatest girl in the whole universe
So very sad, such a beautiful little dolll taken too soon.
It's sad. This child hadn't even had a chance to find her focus. I'm not even hating on Bieber but it's pretty sad that her major concerns and possibly reason for living/happiness was a pop-star and facebook (seemingly). At least she was happy though. Ignorance is bliss and is not necessarily always bad. Imagine someone like me dying... it would be complex and I probably wouldn't be happy. I feel for her parents and hope this disorder finds a cure.
What an odd, inconsiderate, and rude thing to say. The little girl was 6 years old! Possibly younger when she met Beiber. Lots of little kids like him and his music! What's wrong with you?
This little girl found some small piece of joy in Bieber's music. It gave her and her family some very happy times during a painful and otherwise helpless-feeling life. I applaud Avalanna and her parents for taking their happiness in any way they could, together, while they could. Shame on you for criticizing their innocent and harmless methods.
We are talking about a little girl only 6 years of age. She had an innocent childhood crush on a popular pop star. This is oh so normal. I comments those around her who made a very special day for a child that had little hope of every growing up, falling in love, and marrying the person of her dream.
Disorder...give me a break! You might wish to look in the mirror!
This was such a sad story😥 RIP❤
it's ok that avalanna die cause before she die she became happay at all because of justin that her idol support him..
People make me sick idolizing people.
This was just a publicity stunt for the Biebs.
you make me sick curt, picking on a 6 YEAR OLD CHILD WHO JUST DIED OF CANCER because she had a crush on a teenage pop star. what the hell is wrong with you? she is a loving child with a crush on a boy... it's really not that deep. I don't know what issues you have that made you so heartless, but you should work on them instead of venting them in a public forum.
Cancer is a horrible, horrible enemy. Why have we not conquered it yet? What is taking our scientists and doctors so long? Have we not spent hundreds of $-billions to find a cure for cancer? Huh? So why is it still around? Why has it not yet been destroyed? Huh? Why?
No money in a cure, I think they know what causes it. I heard if you get the PH of your body to be very basic, or alkaline you can kill cancer..
they like population control
Because just throwing in money isn't going to fix it. Please read up on cancer and what causes it and you will see the complications of removing/preventing it with how cancer works.
Here's the thing; doctors HAVE conquered it, in a better way than chemotherapy. Did you know that if you bathe the cancerous area with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), it will kill cancer cells? Scientists and marketing companies don't want to market this, because there is no money for them, unlike the highly expensive chemotherapy, where it kills all cells, both good and bad, and leave you vulnerable to other diseases. And I'm not talking about some fancy high tech procedure involving chemically enhanced sodium bicarbonate. I am talking about baking soda that you can find in your grocery store, and use for many things. All the "cancer walks" and foundations that send money to cancer research are really wasting their time. No one has ever mentioned it, but I think it's going straight into their pockets, and their pretending to find a high tech cure. I'm sorry for my ranting, but hey, you stated something that I feel strongly about!
Of course they know what causes it....carcinogens that mutate genes in your DNA and cause regular cells to proliferate like crazy and become malignant. Smoking, asbestos, certain chemicals all cause cancer. The reason there's no cure is because it is one of your own cells turning into an evil version of itself, so it's very hard to target something that your body recognizes as "self". There probably won't be a cure, money should go into research for pain alleviation for patients and identification of other carcinogens that we probably interact with on a daily basis to take a preventative step against cancer.
if a cure is found[if it has not already been] look at all the people that would be out of a job.
There are 70+ different forms of cancer. Some of them have effective treatments but many do not.
I have had three different diagnoses of cancer. So far I have survived them all.
I just want to know how many of you have ever had a battle with cancer...if you have not ever had one then SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!!! If you have fought and won then my respect goes out to you. As a mom AND a cancer fighter, I can not even begin to imagine what this sweet little girls family must still be going through and will go through until their day of passing. Avalanna, your story has inspired all of cancer fighters and survivors I'm sure. You will definitely be missed!!! Everyone is looking at this all wrong...the only thing that makes this different from the Make A Wish Foundation is that it was the nurses doing something nice for a sweet little girl with brain cancer that had touched their hearts that got the whole thing started. The only reason it has blown up like it has is because Justin is so famous. The fact that he took time out for her I think is amazing! Justin, I have 4 daughters from ages 6 to 12 and you have captured their hearts, I could not imagine going through what her parents have with any of them! I think you are an awesome person for what you did for that little girl. You made a little girls dreams come true and I know she passed a happy girl. I have always loved your music, and I'm so glad to see that you haven't lost yourself in being famous. I know it's hard, but she is in a better place and you will see her again one day. Keep your head up and don't let anyone knock you down!
I miss you avalanna we all miss you including your parents and Justin bieber your really lucky that you met Justin bieber
why did that little girl die
justin bieber murdered her
I really don't like Biebers music, but I can't dislike him at all. This is only one of many things that he does constantly, more than you hear other celebrities doing. Very sorry to hear the girl passed away.
Oh! Generation of vipers, I'm not saying this to make you sad or happy but for you to know the truth don't call me idiot, but stand for your point, with hearts like this more is yet to come and only time will prove whether I'm write. Why blame it on God yet you are not looking at your own wrong. This couple is not the last but we want a remedy for them who are still alive. If you say God is then you say you evoluted then, a baboon will laugh at you because all creation waiteth for the manifestation of the true sons of God.selah
Lol, what? Lay off the delusions, bro
Go get your pills and take them and wait quietly for two hours and you will start feeling better again.
Proof that there is no God, giving a child brain cancer that takes her life by age six.
Proof that there is God, your very next breath is at His mercy as you read this comment. Proof that there's God I'm warning you and don't say He did not visit you,proof that there's God many parents with in the world out there, yet they will no what to say about the hope of God in GHRIST before their final breath. selah
It is an interesting premise you propose. This child seemed to really enjoy the cameras and attention. RIP Avalanna.
Proof of nothing at all. Everyone HAS to die. The less time spent here, the better. This is only a temporary step in our existence...for some moments, for others, a dozen decades, and then the change. But without mortality, there can be no immortality.
Proof, that your ignorant!
I have little faith in the existence of god. I often wish that I did, and when I hear of the passing of a child I wish it the most. The pain her parents must surely feel seems hard to reconcile with the existence of a supreme being. However, if he does exist, the shortness of her life simply means she got to meet him sooner than most and, had to endure less of what is often an ugly world. While this can not be of much consolation to her parents I can only hope he does exist and, that they will know her laughter again.
Echo, your comment is a prime example of why religion should be abolished as soon as possible.
gods not to blame but she is in heaven she is fine her sickness is gone she is with god poeple tht say there is no god there is u just dont have faith
Has anyone refilled Bertrand Russell's cosmic teapot yet?
@Ian Monam Actually, according to Christianity, this child, just as all the rest of us, was born into sin. If this child did not accept Jesus Christ as her savior, she did not go to Heaven to be with God. I don't quite know how a 6 year old accepts Jesus Christ as their savior, since I doubt a 6 year old has a concept of what that even means.

I'm asking a serious question here, and I would like a serious answer, rather than reactionary angry posts indicating some level of offense at me questioning your beliefs.
I wonder why the gentiles are called the wild olive tree, is it not because there is no fear of GOD in their hearts? if jb did a good thing, its only a prevledge unto him,but give honour to whom honour is due. Is it not God that touches the heart of a mam to do good, however I don't believe jb did any good as he enticed the little girl with his music, these are the depths of satan doing something that seems good does not mean I'm good. this also reaches to the parents who did not teach the child in a way she should grow. Looking for happiness in jb was to nought but six years are enough to give hope to a child I believe God will hold them accountable this might be a premuture and something might have been done in the house of God you think cancer is too big for God. selah
You are a sick and horrible person, just like the vast majority of theists. If god is real then he is a murderer by every definition of the word. He murders children everyday. He stands by with a sick grin on his face as he watches child molesters rape their own children. He dangles food in front of starving children then pulls it from their grasp, boisterously laughing as the child falls to the dust and dies.
Em – you sound bat crap crazy with your rantings. Why would anyone believe any of the crazy azz crap your spouting – if anyone could even make sense of it. Gee, I wonder why sane people think religion is crazy?
Or maybe it was something as simple as a dying child being comforted by a song she liked, and a singer she liked to hea singing it. I think em likes to make mountains out of molehills. The sin of ...pride.
Sad that the parents put more faith in Beiber than in God in a time like this
Oh! Praise GOD for j, you are in the light. don't hide it.
Probably because Beiber did more to help that young girl's spirits than any "god" ever could.
God is the one who murdered her with cancer? Why would her parents want to have or give faith in god?
Praised be Joe Pesci!
A very mean and rude comment. Giving Avalanna her last dying wish has nothing to do with their spiritual belief system. I think it's wonderful that Justin reached out to this little girl that had a major 'crush' on him and that her parents supported her until her last breath. You obviously don't have kids. Condolences to the family, thanks for being such wonderful parents, and Justin, thanks for making a dying girl's wish come true. You are truly a wonderful, caring young man. Don't ever lose that characteristic in all your fame.
Joe bless you, thunderkick!
I used to be religious. I then got help for bi-polar disorder and the world looked different. Farewell to an innocent child whose life was cut way to short. That what this story is about, not religious fear mongering.
Glad everyone is showing how much knowledge they have about the bible and so on but no one really cares honestly. This is about a beautiful and strong willed little girl and you people are arguing about religion and Justin Bieber? Really? Who cares if you liked Justin or not, he made Avalanna very happy and that is all that really matters. Jeez, real sad and pathetic that this forum has turned into arguing and about yourselves, makes me feel even more sorry for the family. Avalanna made my heart melt in that video, what a privelege it would have been to know her. At least she is no longer suffering now. RIP Avalanna.
I'm with you on that Jenny. Totally agree.
Very sad. But it was kind of Justin to make this girl's wish come true. The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long.
Thanks very much for your comment, Robert.
if the parents of little Avalanna: I hope you know that the majority of the people reading this were touched by your little girl and her story and I hope you are comforted now with memories of her brief but lovely life.
P.S. the people posting those hideous comments on here will learn the hard way when karma pays them a visit.
In the arms of the Angels....fly away from here......
RIP Avalanna.....do not listen to the cynics on this thread. You loved Justin.....he made you smile and today he remembers you and misses you.
May your spirit soar and may your family think of you every day with a smile......forever.
I couldn't have said it better, Nancy. I'm no Beiber fan, but what he did for that little girl touches me.
I can't stop crying for her parents, such a loss. What a sweet brave girl.
bet you 100 the dumbest coomennts are from them huh?
Uh, that should be "Blacks HAVE Lowest IQ." You see, "has" is to be used ONLY in singular reference. [Singular = solo, alone, by one's self]. The word "have" is used when referring to a group of people; more than one; NOT alone.
And yes, I am Black. Proudly.
On a much more meaningful note: Kudos to Bieber for showing he cares. May Avalanna's parents and friends find comfort from those of us who are empathetic to their pain and loss...not the cowards who use such moments to bring additional pain for no apparent reason.
Seriously brought tears to my eyes. Her voice was so sweet. I pray for her fmaily. So sad, 🙁
She is the perfect story to wright about, But i feel bad for her family. I send you lots of love and prayers.
This story touched me, I have two little girls, and they love Justin! May my heart go out to the her parents and I pray that AT/RT does find a cure for this yucky illness. God Bless and may the Angels of the Lord be with you.
So many girls of all ages love the Biebs – and he loves all that money he makes from them.
My condolences to the family.
for all those who are saying that why would god do this to a small little girl and ohh its "some god we serve" god is god he does what he wants he wants he is no respecter of persons. he knows whats best for us we don't know what is best for ourselves cause the amount of trials some of us went through we shouldn't be here but yet he wakes us up every morning cause if he doesn't im telling you no one else will or can even those that don't believe. but that really wasn't the point of writting this article it was to give out respect to Avalanna so RIP beautiful.
I'm an Atheist, but I just hate to see fellow Atheists go around and criticize people for even mentioning God and religion. I understand that we are the extreme minority in the world right now, and going around and insulting people of faith won't help anything.
RIP Avalanna. You were a fighter, and your story will surely inspire many to continue the fight.
I see the trolls are out in full force today and giving Christians a bad name.
No, Christians are doing that pretty much themselves.
oh poor baby but god is good
There is no god.
R.I.P To a Bright, Beautiful, And Smart Young Lady : | My Prayers Go To You And Your Family Babygirl <3.. R.I.P Alvanna
Not a Bieber fan at all, but a class move on his part. Why don't all you critics tell us whay you have done for a child with cancer lately?
hi orslander jstification is an instant experience we have when we receive the holy ghost but a for the true riches its about works remember 'behold i ome quickly and my reward is with me to ... you can finish jqmes also quotes abiut show me your works without wirks and i wil show... you can finish that which GOD has justified us by through faith must also work out something for us to be found worth pardon my extempremeous mess. selah
em, I'm sorry but I read your post over and over and I really can't figure out what you are trying to say.
I'm not trying to be a grammar Nazi, I know I make more than my fair share of mistakes, but the lack of capitals, punctuation, spelling mistakes and typo's makes your post indecipherable to me.
If you are really trying to spread God's word, then please at least use spell check, because if I can't figure out what you are trying to say, how is someone with no biblical knowledge going to understand?
Unfortunately, from what I can discern from your posts you are only spreading a twisted and misinformed interpretation of scripture.
Please stop, you are only driving people away from God and reenforcing the stereotype that dedicated Christians are only religious nut jobs.
I'm done with this thread:
"Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels."
And this has certainly become a foolish and stupid argument.
Everyone Justin Bieber touches DIES.He's like the bulmonic plague.But with a squeaky voice and lesbian hair
There's a bridge waiting for you to jump off.
A little girl dies and this is what you write? May that sweet little girl rest in peace and may her family find the strength they need to process this horrible loss.
Perhaps you mean: BUBONIC plague.
The one thing in the world she wants,and its...Bieber....EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
Can I take that gun your holding and pull the trigger so the opening is pointing at you please?
She was dying, she loved Justin Bieber, let her live the life she might be still living now. Happy knowing she met her idol/savior.
R.I.P sweetie. Everyone loves you, no matter what haters say, they are plain jealous of you and your beautifulness. Enjoy dancing in the clouds freely with the other children:)
just one moment please. How can you give hapiness to a dying soul using the wrong remedy.Iknow it seems right what jb did but consider a fact we do not mind about the beginnigs of someone but what people die holding onto is what matters my major above all is that why do people always blame it all on God what do you mean by an innocent child so only guilty ones deserve it? again am i wrong if i say JESUS taking the place of jb would have been better ?if you the girl ws to have adored you on what things were you to yield him to yourself as if you have the abilityof all things or to JESUS? are we looking for the happiness of this world or the happiness of the world to come? how can you aproach the curse that is on this earth? does cancer sounds normal to you or we need a far much greater power than that our carnal minds have? are we to look at our past or rather look forward to where we are going? are we to wait for another case as this and still justify innocency of the dead? will i be untruthful to say these comments only last a while? if so is there not a hope ahead that i will carry your name in hope till we reach that golden dawn? are we not all sorowful though in diferent approaches? is this not matter of life and death? selah
B r e a t h e
em;is it me,or did you say something?
Pretty Crappy Grammar, And You Ran On About Something About Camel Brains. But Whatever 😛
This is so sad. I'm glad she had some time with Bieber. Condolences to the family.
I will begin this by saying that I do not like Justin Bieber as a musician or as a cepebrity one little bit. Not at all.
However my estimation of him as a human being has risen tremendously.
I grieve at the death of yet another innocent child, and I am heartened to hear that so many, lo even the Biebster, cared for her and comforted her in her illness.
I will not weep for those negative commenters here who are pushing some hateful agenda that is truly incomprehensible to me. I will merely laugh to know that, for their callous inhumanity and self-righteous abuse of holy words, they will suffer horribly, in life and in eternity.
No one has touched me as much as some one I have never met. The brief video's of this little girls spirit was overwhelmingly touching. No words to the parents are adequate.
I mourn for your lost.
So sorry for your tremendous loss, and what a brave incredible young girl.....RIP....the angels are so happy she is with them.
guving much scripural referernce Eccl 9vs5 shows us the state of the dead outweighting that the girl has been turne into an angelic being. Mark 16vs 16 show that a person has to believe first inorder to be a part of the redemptive purpose and if you agree with me that she ws just a little girl then she was not mature enough to believe if cain would have died at a young age as this what would be your answer today.nothing can be further from the truth if GOD intended to save her then she would not die until she would come to a point of maturity, but i'm trying to tell you about the answer to all these problems for us who still live. CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY. also check Phil 3vs6-12.selah
So according to your misinterpretation of scripture, god set her up to fail, and damned her for eternity. You are attempting to usurp the word of god to judge what you have no right to judge, and are deliberately misrepresenting scripture to pursue your own earthly agenda.
I say to you now, let the little angel fly. Your false words have no hold over her.
You are a false prophet, and are blaspheming against the holy spirit. Therefore you, em, shall be damned for all eternity.
Additionally, you in your ignorance have no right to use the word selah.
Reading some of these responses makes you question that whole freedom of speech thing.
You show your knowledge of the scriptures, but not the true heart of Jesus.
Well thank you for providing references, but as Phil3:6 points out "a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ." A MAN not a little girl. These scriptures dealing with baptism and repentance are directed toward adults. And the scripture still holds that Jesus specifically and unconditionally gave the Kingdom to all little children children. Matthew 19:14 Mark 10:14 Luke 18:16
He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus calls us several times to be like little children in order to enter Heaven.
Oh, and just some constructive criticism, you really should work on your writing and constructing your thoughts. I find it really difficult to understand what you are saying, and follow your thought process.
Not really. It shows us who they are. 😉
Disgusting comments on this board. RIP little girl.
I agree with you WOW. How did a story like this inspire so many poisonous comments? Sad to say that this little angel is probably in a far better place, than here on earth with monsters like those who have posted such hideous comments. This story is just so, so sad.
kids go to heaven u idiot.she was innesent.people like u are idiots.
No, people who spell "innocent" the way you did are idiots.
PS. There is no heaven.
dont forget that unless one is baptisd of water and of the Spirit he will not enter into the kingdon and if it is posible for little childen to be infested by demons this can disqualify someone to enter therein and besides noone is going to have a glimpse of hevean save the bridal company as for the rest w alwys pray 'thy kingdom come its here on the earth. a happy life with a cekeb wont qualify you in the kingdomcmy dear. selah
1st: Who are you to be calling other people idiots when you can't even spell the word "you" correctly. 2nd: According to Christianity, every one is born into sin. If you are a child and you haven't been baptized then you are technically going to hell. 3rd: No matter what religious belief, or lack thereof, it doesn't matter if you think this girl went to heaven or hell. It doesn't even matter that she met Justin Bieber. The only thing that matters is that another child has died of cancer. Forget Justin Bieber and forget arguing over religion for a bit. Shouldn't we be discussing why we haven't found a cure for this thing yet?
Jennifer, I wouldn't be so sure there is no heaven, I have never met a human being smart enough to convince me one way or the other.
em, If you believe God allows all things to happen then he blessed this girl by allowing her to meet her favorite singer before she passed.
Constantlnsanity, Do you think the medical industry is keeing a cure from being found because they stand to make more money by treating the symptoms rather than a quick cure?
ConstantInsanity – I don't know where you learned about the tenets of Christianity, but you are absolutely and totally wrong. The Christian faith does not believe that a child must be baptized or face hell. Perhaps you are thinking of Catholicism and purgatory?
"dont forget that unless one is baptisd of water and of the Spirit he will not enter into the kingdon..."
That's a lie! No where in the Bible will you find that. In fact. Babtism has little to nothing to do with getting into Heaven.
Vad: I think that is a possibility. Don't get me wrong I do believe that people are trying to find a cure, but with all the money made off of treating it, there has to be some greedy people who would rather be in the business of treatment instead of cures. Besides, if a cancer wonder drug was to come out tomorrow they would jack up the price to a ridiculous amount.
Meg: It seems that as an Atheist I know more about your faith than you do. In the Abrahamic faiths you are born into sin. In Christianity you are born a sinner and will suffer in hell unless you believe in Jesus Christ. Seeing as how infants and toddlers cannot believe in Jesus until they are old enough to understand it, the parents have them baptized. "Peter replied, 'Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.' Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church–about three thousand in all.” Acts 2:38, 41
they are ways that seems write unto a man but the ends thereof are the ways of death I know that jb did not give anything profitable to the girl but rather destruction. what will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose out his own soul yet the girl died hopeless for just a portion. selah
em, it seems that you are misquoting the Bible, but you don't give any references to the Book:Verse., so I can't look it up to verify what you are saying. Please include those in any future "quotes" you might post.
"they are ways that seems write unto a man but the ends thereof are the ways of death"
I do not understand your gibberish here. What are you saying?
You DO understand that there was nothing wrong or harmful involved in this at all, that it was all done to make a dying child happy?
Do you understand that? Do they have happiness, children, or mercy in your dimension?
"I know that jb did not give anything profitable to the girl but rather destruction."
He gave comfort, hope and happiness to a dying child. Profit was not a factor. If you see no good in this, I humbly suggest you present yourself before your lord for immediate judgment.
"what will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose out his own soul yet the girl died hopeless for just a portion."
I am so glad that i do not know what you mean here. I can only assume that it is more bile that you are spewing on a child. I do not understand your hatred of children, or of happiness, or of comfort to the dying.
bram it is you that shall burn and rot in hell for the awful hate and disgust in your heart against one of gods beautiful, pure creatures. for your hurtful words and sins, you should go to church and repent. for god waits for us all in the kingdom of heaven, and you shall not join him if you continue this hate.as it is in Ephesians 4;22:
"till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the son of god, christ the lord, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of christ, that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to decieve," just as you are trying to do bram. god bless the sould of Avalanna.
Dude, high score I freaking rock!
Oh cancer, you rascal.
You think this is funny you POS? Rot in hell.
even the devil has suceeded in taking the hearts of many you live a life of abomination but at the end people seek the favour of GOD. thats hypo... a many people we know have done terrible things but at their funeral you always here 'they are now with JESUS their lifestyle denied him if my parents would let me yield to any pop,rock, or ragger singer and in my end try to comfort themslves with the word of GOD that would be blasphemy. i believe GOD is soverein and this is a warning to us who are still alive. it sounds simple to us but she's gone. and dath has notyet ben destroyed and its coming for us but we are looking for people that die with the power of CHRIST until we hear the words. OH! death where is thy sting! even celebs are not immune to death rememberMJ. Selah
how sad for you, your life must be a complete misery surrounded by failures and underachiever dreams? To what service would you come to gain by defiling a eulogy to a 6 year old child? I hope one day you find the relief or satisfaction you seek, a little girl had the chance to smile in an ugly world, and this is humanity's crime to you? yes I feel very sad for you.
With your post, you've proven your a liar, Quit while your ahead.
You are the kind of person that , if I had the misfortune of meeting you, I would turn and walk away. Quickly . And I would keep going for a long time. Like everything , moderation is the key –even with religious devotion . But you are nutty.
I've known people who have come in contact with Justin Bieber at places they are employed, like restaurants or Disney world. Apparently he is really rude and immature, and enjoys mocking and demeaning the staff at places he visits. It's nice to see he at least at some redeeming qualities to him. The way he handled the situation with this girl was honorable.
Really? That is just the opposite of what I've been told. I've been given first-hand accounts of how he is a very kind, polite, and gracious young man for whom acts like he did for this poor child are common place. I may not be a fan of his music, (in fact, I despise it) but from everything I've ever heard from people who have met him, he is truly a top-notch human being who likes to help others to no benefit of his own.
so i made a spelling error. so what? is that all you got on me?
we will see who is making the REAL error when you are thrashing in hell. praise jesus the wicked WILL BURN & SCREAM FOREVER.
& to whoever made the comment to turn from the hate...sorry but I HATE sin & evil, even if its disguised as a cutesy 6 year old girl. couldnt fool GOD ALMIGHTY the lord of lord jesus the LAMB though. i will sleep soundly tonight knowing that god loves us so much he will torture FOREVER those against all of us on the side of the true god!!!!!!!
I just farted and dedicated it to you.
Come on bram, give us proof! Back up what you are saying with scripture or don't say anything at all!
I pray for your distorted hate filled mind and heart. All hate is against God; you are no judge for God's law and obviously has never felt Gods love. Once you do you will see your hate and judgments are false and Godless. Step down from you soup box and drop to your knees pray for God’s forgiveness. Let God fill your heart with love and go show that love to the world.
You are a sick b-–d
There is no literal "hell fire and briimstone"..
The misrepresentation comes from the misunderstanding of the word "Gehenna" in the original writing of the bible..
Outside the city was a fire that burned constantly, called Gehenna. where things were tossed.. It was descriptive speech trying to impress on people that things would go in and never come out.. Trying to show people you will be gone forever if you sin.. Meaning forgotten..NO eternal life. NO coming back , just as things did not come back from Gehenna.
NO one is tossed into a burning fire to burn forever..
So stop trying to accuse God of being a torturer.. Thats a lie.
Don't feed the trolls. It just encourages them.
If you were a Muslim you would be making a bomb right now. Fanatic Christian zealot. Isn't it odd that the nutty religious extremists from Islam and Christianity are the ones that give a bad name to the people who are trying to honor their religion and live in peace?
This isn't about frickin' Justin Beiber...quite all your preaching and get to the real point on this story. A beautiful child lost her battle with cancer. I did see her on the "Stand UpTo Cancer" bebefit on TV. She was an amazing child wiser beyond her years who lived each day with more positive thoughts than most healthy people. Enough about JB please. Respect this little girl's life that was far too breif and go hug your own children.
her life was cut short b/c she turned away fro GOD & submerged herself in secular pop music & lusted after justin bieber. hell will take care of it, so dont worry! our all powerful GOD is in control & destroying the wicked no matter what packaging they come in 🙂
Lies bram, just lies.
Jesus says in
"Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them–do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem?"
This girl did not die because she was guilty of some sin.
Sorry dear lovely parents of Avalanna. Tke heart!
how dare you. i am dead serious. read your bible & tell me i am wrong. if you call "spreading the TRUTH" of what gods word is "tolling"...you will have a terrible fate, Vad.
repent & accept what happens is gods will & that he will ALWAYS destroy evil, no matter how young or cute you think it is.
I think "tolling" is when you pay money to use a state highway. I'm just thinking I might want to mention it since your dogs**t god failed to teach you how to spell.
Stop confusing faith with truth. They are not connected.
You sir don't know God. I read the same Bible as you and have been doing so for much longer than you have I assure you. You are destined for an eternity filled with darkness and pain. Prepare to be disappointing when you don't see this little girl there with you.
Bram, I read my bible too and I don't think we are reading the same thing. You are a sick, satanic and ignorant individual. However, I am comforted that the evil that is your heart towards this family and little girl will be judged in the end by God just as harshly as you judged this little girl. May you burn in hell since it is Satan who is your father.
bram, you have spreading lies and confusion. You claim you are telling the truth back it up with proof.
The Bible says this about little children in Luke 18:16
"But Jesus called the children to him and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.'"
Jesus himself said that little children are in the Kingdom of God. I certainly think that a 6yo girl qualifies.
She doesn't need to be baptized or accept Jesus, she died pure and innocent without sin or blemish just because she was still an innocent child.
listen bram. i understand that you are trying to show what you believe in, but if you are going to quote the bible then you have to be correct. correct me if im wrong but in gods eyes, arent all children innocent and pure? it is jesus that says, "if you have the innocence of this child, then it is you that will be accepted into the kingdom of heaven" so god rest the soul of this poor little girl, for she is most definetely in heaven right now, because her youth gave her innocence. so get it right bram
Your interpretation of the bible is waaaaaaay out there. Have you protested at any funerals lately?
You're feeding it.
praise god for destroying this abomination. she was born into sin & died in sin. she will burn in hell where she belongs for the sins she died in...secular music & lust.
repent for god with toss you in hell with this little girl if you do not.
This reply is not directed toward bram but rather all who think of replying to him: Ignore him and he will go away. Don't get angry or think you can tell him off, it is an obvious attempt to troll for a reply. Seeing as how I did reply, I will make it worth while by saying "Rest in Peace" to Avalanna.
Wow. Just wow.
I'm not a Justin Bieber fan, and I've never heard of this little girl until today, but your comment is completely inappropriate. I'm sad to say that the First Amendment, unfortunately, protects your drivel.
Bram, you have lost sight of God please turn away from your hate and judgments. Follow God which is love, turn away from your path and follow god. If you don’t you’ll never feel Gods love and you will be in hell without it.
Fire and brimstone much? She was pure and blamless. You however are not. If anyone deserves hell it's you.
Are you completely insane?
Rest peacefully little girl. Justin Bieber is to be commended on how well he treated this child. She only had 6 years but she got to realize her life long dream thanks to Bieber. Many full grown adults don't even get a chance to do that.
have you never come across something like 'I will not share my glory with any yet many of the comments point where all the glory is going. however my point is if you believe that jb gave joy to the girl then why is there distress among what hope of CHRIST is there in jb's songs. tho I cannot question the christian life of the lad yet I have much thought to question the lifestyle she had in relation to christianity. again if you belive prayer gives you strenght then why sound so weak,check the coments if you please. i also feel sorry about this but will not compromise the word of GOD which far greater beyind imaginatin than just a carnal theology. what do you want us to say maybe if next time its you. selah
Again...huh? You may want to look into a composition class at your local college. You seem to have a lot you want to say, but you're all over the place.
i dont like him...but where credit is due, credit is given....it may very well be a p.r. stunt but it is still an altruistic gesture...props
R.I.P...Avalanna...you will not be forgotten
accomplished so much simply by having had others read of her story
Pax Vobis little gal. We Americans love war so much, how about instead of fuzzy wuzzies, we declare a new war (since we like doing it) on cancer (the Nazis did the same and had good success)? I figure with our money and ability to attract the best minds in the world, we might be able to take some ground so little girls like this don't have to die?
It is truly sickening to see religious people on here commenting about how she is in a better place. She's dead and nowhere. How could any God justify killing a 6 year old? Try for one second to be capable of critical thinking.
Another desperate atheist and his rants. Get lost m.o.r.o.n.
cnnlicksit, how do you know where she is? Where did you get this supernatural ability to perceive where she has gone? What I find "truly sickening" is someone like you making comments like you made. You claim she is nowhere. Prove it! If you can't then be quiet. Let people grieve how they wish. Who are you to say that other people's views of the afterlife aren't true? By the way, lack of evidence isn't proof.
That depends if she accepted christ as her lord and savior.
She's 6yo, how could she make that decision at such a young age? What sins could she possibly have committed?
I'd recommend you read CS Lewis "The Problem of Pain". Critical thinking that deals directly with that question.
The Bible is the answer to all ignorance. God is not responsible. Adam and Eve chose to sin and we inherited their sin. Isaiah 25:8 tells what Jehovah God is going to do to death and ps. 37:29 tells us where we are Really going to live. Take a look at Rev. 21:3,4 which will bring you and many others encouragement concerning this matter.
Concerned, sorry but I have to disagree with you. We did not inherit Adam's or anyone's sin. Our sin comes from our actions and thoughts not our ancestors. Original sin is a man made concept.
In Ezekiel 18:20
"The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him."
🙁 she is in a good place now she is a angle
You mean "angel". Humans don't turn into angels. Angels were God's puppets that he created to help him which is odd because if God was all powerful why did he need help? She was also female and according to the scripts that the Catholic church purposely left out of the Bible females don't have souls.
I think you're being a little obtuse here.
You are just another example of why people will never let atheists take the world over. We don't need a cold heart s.o.b like you around.
Rest in peace little angel. To her parents I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.
I've never heard a Justin Bieber song in my life and know absolutely nothing about him, but considering what he did for this girl, I'm suddenly a fan.
ALLAH AHKBAR !!!!!!!
oh! my people suffer because of lack of knowledge, JB might have given this little girl joy in her life time, but never concerning the kingdom to come for we are all come short of the glory of GOD and deserve to die even as the young girl did, comfort but not using false hope you openly try to give hope yet inwardly killing for more of these things are yet to happen even worse. especially when someone lies that someone dead is already an angel, thats hypocri.... dont give people false hope. and as for jb though i dont know him what kind of hope did he give to the child when she's dead mostly be careful about what you say about GOD cause your very next breath is at His mercy even as you read this statement and was even merciful for those six years but noone clser to him could encourage her to avail herself to the creator but rather to a teenage singing love songs that have never given many loving hearts. you can say i'm wrong but my question to you is that are these cases new to your ears. stop and consider
Yes it is wrong to say that the little girl became an angel because in Christian theology humans don't become angels. We can however hope that a young girl, who died before the age of reason, was brought into God's Kingdom. Also, we don't know if she was baptized or a Christian. Yes, perhaps she showed too much devotion to Justin Bieber, but can any of us say we never put undue attention on something of this world?
Um..."em"..I'm not sure if I'm understanding you correctly. Are you saying that if she prayed to God..and didn't like Justin Bieber so much... she wouldn't die from cancer? This isn't even about God or religion at this point. You're just plain stupid. Also, for people who don't believe in prayer-fine. You don't. People pray for strength...the very act of prayer gives them strength to get through difficult situations. It's sort of a self fulfilling kind of thing. You pray for strength and feel stronger for having something to believe in and perhaps be watching over you. I don't get it either, but they do.
More religious psychobabble. Blahblahblah, parrot. Mindless retarded member of the herd. Go drink some more Kool-Aid.
This comment is absolutely disgusting. When your faith in God robs you of compassion, you need to ask yourself where you went wrong. You sound more like a pharisee than a Christian.
She was a 6 year old girl, I don't think a loving God would fault her for falling into the celebrity thing, it's not like she thought or worshiped him as a false (God) idle. How old would someone have to be to comprehend that sort of thing? Don't blow it out of proportion.
Speaking of "deserving to die" please do so.
And I am sure that you will lead many, many people to the love of God in this manner. You might have the best intentions but you definitely need to know that condemnation is not the way to gather the lost to a Loving, forgiving Heavenly Father.
God loves you but he also loved the World so very much that He Gave His only begotten Son. Why would he do that? So that they could be saved! Love heals, condemnation destroys.
Em, I'm an educated, fairly intelligent person, and I've read your post twice now, and for the life of me I can't figure out what you're saying. It looks like a jumbled mess typed by someone with a reading/writing disorder. What are you trying to say?
It is written in the Bible that God created man, and gave him an immortal soul however NO WHERE is it written that he gave females a soul. Only males are immortal.
Just remember, he who is without sin cast the 1st stone. Who are to to judge this little girl??How do you know that her parents taught her about the Love and hope of Jesus Christ. And if she found love and happiness in a Pop Singer, who are you to try to bring her down?? People like you are pathetic!!!!
WHO CARES about religion and all of this other bullcrap, this story isnt revolving around and of YOU! Point is, this family lost their beautiful baby, and will hurt for a very long time... There are no words to express my condolances. I am a VERY blessed mother of two boys, and this story broke my heart. She is now a sweet little angel, flying above in HER heaven.... Her parents are heroes... I can only pray to be half as strong as they are. I hope they find comfort in THEIR God. Rest in peace, precious! <3
Um what!? You say forget religion and then think the girl is flying around in the clouds with little angel wings? I mean seriously. A little girl died due to a horrible disease. You religious nuts talk about this as if almost a good thing, like she if better off this way. Why dont you all just band together and kill each other off so you can be flying around in the clouds with your little angel wings.
THank you Mr. Bieber for this random act of kindness. May Avalanna rest in peace.
I hate it when children suffer. Very sad. Little 6 year old had no chance to grow up. Some say oh God has a plan. Gimmie a break.
When any of my friends have died while I was growing up from cancer, none of them got a front page CNN heart wrenching story about their life...
The people who caused their sickness do, ever day in the business section.
You are pathetic.
Wow– as a 42 year-old metalhead who hates this style of music I must bow...
VERY well done, sir! I take back every bad thing I've said about the man. A true class act! I cannot imagine how happy this must have made this girl and her family.
Agreed. I'm 44 and into trance music (think music you might hear in a dance club at 4am), and I am not a fan of bubble gum music, but not enjoying the genre is not the same as respecting the artists.
Beiber, you are all right. Keep doing deeds like this, and not letting your fame go to your head, and you will be successful for a long, long time.
ya know, you religious people, atheists can be compassionate and care that this girl suffered AND not buy into the god BS... having genetic cancer in my family, and being a mother that may lose a child to cancer, no one can tell me I dont know what it's like...but i also accept that stuff happens and that's that... to pray to a god for giving this little girl cancer and making her and her parents suffer needlessly, doesn't make sense to us... we are not hate-filled, but can't understand why people like you hang so tightly to a god that would kill this innocent child and pray for her to be with him...if you assigned anything else other than 'your god' to this, it would also not make sense to you. also, none of you believe in other religion's gods, so stop being so hypocritical.
Please don't be offended by what I need to say but I have always believed that God needs little Angels to Heaven to carry out special tasks. I lost a sister who was younger than I and I don't know how I could live if I didn't know she was in God's loving hands.
This isn't a forum where we're going to convince each other. It just appeared to me that you're going under an assumption that isn't biblical. The concept is that God is in control of the big picture. God is about life. God is not about death. God wouldn't choose to have anyone die. We're given free will to make choices. I would admit that she died becasue of God's inaction. God can always prevent such a thing -But God didn't cause her death. God may use the situation for something positive but didn't create the situation. I'm sure that sounds twisted or simplistic. It'salways hard to understand from our point of view.
i feel ashamed of myself .. because she had a cancer and she looks very hopeful
we desperate for nothing ..
she had a strong faith ..
i'm sorry for her family ..
Religion is a joke. Every religion has the belief THEIR god (note lowercase) is the best. Big deal ~ someone died. This is news?
this is a 6yr old child who died from cancer the world is trying to find a cure for.how can you be so Heartless.. do you have kids? I guess not, OR YOU JUST NEED A FEW MINS OF ATTENTION.......HEARTLESS pig
Yeah... wouldn't it be nice if you did???
Wrong forum, Spartacus.
Cripes, WG. I'm no fan of religion either, but if it helps someone feel better, or gives hope, who am I to argue?
Yes, people who are overly preachy try to push their values on others, and I am against that. But that is NOT what is going on here.
A kid died at age 6. Now is not the time to be moralizing.
The bitterness that you hold in your soul has eaten away your heart and has left you with no compassion.
Really? You think you have to be religious to feel pain when dies? It's news because the public knew her story; it's sad because a child is gone.
Apparently, this was a well known thing and people probably would want to know about her passing away. Maybe to inspire people to donate or help make a dying child a little happier for a day, a month, a year or even an hour. This offends you? What does qualify as news? Seriously, how many things actually affect you personally where you won't complain about it being "real" news? What a strange view.
Words can not describe my feelings for the families loss. May God be watchung over you you at this time. Walking threw the cancer ward of chuldrens hospital is always one of my saddest moments. I have several illnesses one being NF1. How could God take a child and let me go on. Sorry I can't even think right now. God Bless
Our thoughts are with all who loved Avalanna.
God rest her little, tiny soul. I cried last night when I heard she had lost her battle with cancer.
With that said, there are some people on this site that I wouldn't help if they were laying in the street dying.
I ignore the hate filled comments. All I have to say is to the family. I am sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine the loss your going through. My heart breaks hearing your story. I am a father of a 8 year old I do not know how you were able to handle this with so much grace. I hope you find peace in her passing. I just don't know how I could.
You do not have to be big to have a huge impact. Thanks for making a difference on the world around you.
God speed little one. Heaven has a new angel.
I Think you all miss the point.
A little girl has passed here and he tried to help.
Be it God or no God, whatever you believe, to help someone those dying should always be done.
Good on you Bieber, RIP sweet child.
RIP Avalana...mom & dad, know that she is at peace and out of her suffering. Yours will take a bit longer, hold her near in your heart and memories. Hopefully you'll only remember the happy times and the pain in your heart will lessen each day.
What a Beautiful Child. I'm so sorry for you loss.
I am not a Justin Bieber fan, but doing what he did for this little girl shows me that he has some class. Good for him.
RIP little one.
Say what you want about Biebs, he's ok in my book for doing what he did.
Keep praying to your imaginary friends, people. Clearly, you can see it is working and he really listens.
My, how classy of you to spew your atheistic hatred in here. Really, just end your miserable life, nobody cares.
Some people just don't know when to shut up.
Amazing! Someone without a heart is alive!
Clearly, you're a very unhappy individual or you simply haven't developed compassion and empathy for others. Either way, I hope you choose the road to maturity before you really hurt yourself and continue to hurt others with such bitterness.
Right with you on this one Daniel. If there was such a being why would they knowingly choose to put a child in such anguish and pain? Don't fall for that holy rolly crap, if their is a god I sure wouldn't want to stand by them while they let stuff like this happen to children and I would definitely want to stab it in the face with a soldering iron.
I do not understand people who feel like they need to be so heartless during time of tragedy. Just because YOU do not feel that prayer works, does not mean that everyone else should believe as you do.
Did your Mommy never hug you as a child or something?
Daniel is right. If god decides everything, then he gave this child brain cancer. Why do you people then go back to him asking for solace? I just doesn't make sense.
Well one thing I can say about you Daniel, you obviously must believe God is because you said and I quote "he really listens." This tells me you believe in God and there is still hope for you. People who say there is no God, really believe He is because they will use God's name in swear words and even call on him in emotional times. I know you say phrases like, "oh my God!" and "Jesus Christ, what the he–" oh yeah, we know you'll do. So I appreciate the fact that you know how to call His name. Gotcha!
Even if you don't believe in God, you can still decide to use your life to help others rather than tear them down.
Never ceases to amaze me how some people fight so hard and speak out so much against something they don't believe exist ........think about the next time you want to spew your atheistic nonsense!
Hello to my fellow doubters and disbelievers.
Now shut the @#$!#$ up. Have some class, a little girl died, someone did something to make her life better while she still had it.
You morons make our beliefs seem heartless and cold. I may have my doubts about the afterlife, but I gag at atheists who spew anti-belief bigotry just as much as someone telling me they'll pray for my eternal soul. Neither side has any business doing either.
Just so we're clear, I make this comment to reflect on your complete lack of manners, not your belief system.
To the family, my deepest sympthies, and apologies for the nastiness above.
Well put Ryan
Without God, there is no reason for morality. If human existence is simply due to random chance – which is the only position an atheist can hold – then self-gratification and survival of the fittest is all that matters. And if that is the case, other than the fact that cooperating with others may help our own personal interests, without God there is absolutely no reason to genuinely care if bad things happen to anyone else – i.e., a set of morals. If someone else has a car, house, job, or wife that you want, what stops you from killing them? Just the law? Clearly not. Obviously, it is your conscience which is simply an internal set of morals that was hardwired into us. Where and how was that hardwired into us?? How is it that we feel love? It is far more logical for a parent to simply abandon their children then to take care of them at great expense for 18+ years. Where then does this completely illogical love and devotion a parent instantly feels for their child come from? It is because the essence of God is love and he made us in his image and likeness. Why then do bad things happen to good people, you ask? If you seriously want to understand the answer to that very valid question, read the owner's manual written by your maker called the Bible and attend a Bible study and you will. God bless this little girl and provide comfort to her family.
There is only one God no mattter what your religion is about. God took this beautiful child and with her He took he
took her pain and suffering. Justin is just a child himself, yet he has the ability to move our hearts with his generous
giving of himself. Only look to his Mother to see why he is the generous, kind and loving person he has grown into.
I lost my husband recently to brain cancer. He was a gift to children everywhere as a Santa. I hope the joy he brought to others made this world a better place. God Bless the survivor. Our loved ones are safe in God's arms. If we can
only have faith we will see them again, we too will be made stronger by His love. God Bless You all.
wow.. enough with the holy roller nonsense already.. "He" took her pain and suffering .. really ?? If everyone were to believe in this "all powerful, all knowing & loving God".. then He is the one who gave her this pain and suffering in the 1st place.. ???? Seems "H " is not so wonderful after all.. What total crock..
I feel bad for this little girl and her family and wish this would have never happened...
Johnny B – I question whether you've ever known the joy of being a parent. You may 'wish that this had never happened', but I can assure you that this little girls parents wouldn't trade a day of knowing their daughter, in spite of her sickness.
Johnny B: You believe no God would allow suffering so there must be no God. What if God has a purpose other than to prevent all suffering and pain. Do you also believe a parent who protects their child from any discomfort is a bad parent?
i could barely watch this.. it breaks my hard!! what a gorgeous little girl.. i can't imagine going through what this family did. I can't believe people are ranting about Justin Bieber. I find it amazing that Justin has taken time out of his busy schedule to really touch this family and make this little girl happy! Shame on you people with your nasty comments.
i love u my great angle u will always be in or hearts RIP baby girl! :,(
Avalana you are an beautiful soul that materialized in this planet to bring an incredible lesson of love to the ones that were fortunate enough to be your parents..they should feel blessed to had known you! Namaste
Ugh! Reduced to tears after watching that! What a sweet, sweet little angel. May God comfort her family. I cannot even fathom what it would be like to lose your percious baby girl.... Justin Bieber showed tremendous compassion to a child who enjoyed his music. So kind of him to make one of her dreams a reality. Rest in Peace Avalanna.
My heart goes out to Avalanna's family! I feel your pain
DEATH LEAVES A HEARTACHE NO ONE CAN HEAL...... LOVE LEAVES A MEMORY NO ONE CAN STEAL
God bless you sweet Avalanna
Go and be joyful, Sweetie...you're with Jesus now.....He's YOUR biggest fan!!!
Very nice that Justin Beiber made this little girl so happy at a time that she needed it the most – he made her dream come true. God bless Justin Beiber and Avalanna and her family. With all the crap in the world, finally a nice (yet sad) heartfelt article.
I have more respect for this kid. So sorry to the family for the loss of your baby girl.
So sorry to hear Avalanna passed.....Justin was nuts about this little girl and the effort he put forth to please her should be recognized as something you don't hear about every day.....I absolutely think it's gross to bring your personal feelings about him to this board......credit is due where credit is due.....I'm sure he feels it and I for one, think he's sincere and have always been a fan......richness and success aside, you never hear of him in stories like we hear of others......I pray for her family and am so sorry for the loss and I hope Justin Bieber stays the same way he is!!! RIP Avalanna, you sweetie pie
Mike, I had to reply to your post b/c I couldn't figure out how to post my own.....problem solved now.....
FAIL. I forgot the word "been".
Why, why, why? Why couldn't it have Bieber who died?
The sam ereason we ask this of YOU. How cold can you possibly get? What did Justin do so horrific you wish death?
So rude of you to want Justin Bieber to die instead of Avalanna. You should be using the post to talk about the saddening effects cancer has on people instead of suggesting he die. NEITHER of them should be gone. Show some respect.
Me thinks you protest too much! How long have you had a secret crush on Justin? While I have a real problem with 12- to 15-year old kids singing love songs (please get through puberty first), why would you hate the kid?
I might not have known this little girl but I'm sure she was a delight to be around. She will be greatly missed by more than just her family. Hoping and praying one day that cancer will be cured. Too many innocent lives lost.
Completely uncalled for and inappropriate remark. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
There seems to be some cynical folks on here. Judging from the kitchen this little soul's parents were speaking in, I would think that they could afford the best health coverage for her. If this child had been from a poor or working class family she would not have lived as long as she had, nor had the quality of care she had. She was fortunate in that respect, poorer children would not have had this level of care. Rest in peace sweet little girl.
I feel for her parents; I cannot even imagine what sort of pain they're in, but I hope they take what solace they can knowing she is no longer in any pain, and is fianlly at peace.
Whatever your beliefs or musical prefrences the death of a six year old girl is a tragedy. What her family must be feeling is overwleming. The actions of Mr. Beiber in response to this little girl show the best of the entertainment industry, and the best of a young man. It is unfortunate that some are using thhis to attack Mr. Beiber or others belief.
Agree with Snafu- there is always some turd bucket online that has to distract from the thread and say something cowardly or just plain absurd, all in the name of getting a rise from another user. (wait for it – here comes a reply any minute insulting my mother or claiming the little girl deserved to die) Yes, we're all aware of your hyper intelligence in the ways of life, death, and the order of the universe. Can it!
I had a college friend who just lost their 3 yr old to a heart condition, such pain and loss. This poor family- it will be a long road of grieving and trying to so hard to move beyond her passing. Such a sweet baby girl , prayers and thoughts to her family during this time of loss. 🙁
Not a fan of Bieber at all....too much fluff and not enough talent.
But my hats off to him for spending time with this little girl. Class act.
It is called a publicity stunt.
Do you think his crappy music killed her?
Dave, you have to be the biggest azz on here today. If anything, the Biebs gave her hope, and gave her a very special day. She apparently loved him and his music. Give the Bieb bashing a rest for a day. This is about the loss of any innocent child.
Wow, why are you so mean? What if this was YOUR loved one? You canhate someone, but this is about the loss of an innocent 6 year old that proved to be far more mature than you can possibly ever be. Your words alone can kill. Think of HER PARENTSm you mean old fool.
I think I got some dust or something in my eyes right after watching this video. Whats this water coming out of my eyes?
God Bless that little girl she is an angel now.
And thank you Justin Beiber for making her very happy.
As the father of a young daughter, this is brutal to read. Can't even imagine what they're going through...
Condolences to the little girl... Justin burners music should have a warning label like cigarettes.
You could have and SHOULD have just stopped at the condolense to the girl part, why show your true ugliness by the Bieber Bashing? He did a great thing gor her. If this was your loved one, you would be angered that your loved ones wish is being ridiculed by cruel people like you.
I may not be a Bieber music fan – I can honestly say I don't know his music well enough to have an opinion. But the point of this article is that a child loved his music. And it brought her great, great joy during her all too short life. Justin Bieber had no obligation so reach out to this family. No need to fly them to NY. No need to meet with them but he did. And in doing so, he made this child so very, very happy. A moment of bliss, away from the hospital, the needles, the sickness. This article is about a family who lost the most precious God given gift, their daughter... and about a singer who reached out to them to bring them some joy.
I am so sad for you that you can't see the beauty in this story. Celebrating her beautiful spirit and the kindness of others. I hope and pray you take a moment to relect on the this and quit making hurtful comments.
Some of you people are cold heartless
sub species of humans. You do not deserve
to be called humans.
I pray God touch and change you before
it's your time to go. I hope nobody will
be as cold and callous towards your death
as you are to Avalanna's. May God have
mercy on your soul.
To the Routh family I can't phathom your pain. I am sorry. To Mr Bieber, you are a good man. Thank you for making this girl's life so much brighter. Your humanity is an example we can all follow.
I just want to remind people that feel sorrow with news like this is that we spend 60 times more money do develop new weapons than in medical research. The US alone spend 15 times more money to develop weapons than all other countries together. We got addicted to stock market, wars, and things like that. Thank God that Jesus is coming back and stop the insanity that took control of our world.
You realize there is no GOD, right? We are in this thing alone. You are probably thinking that GOD wanted this little girl to die for a reason, right?
Anyway.... Good Job Justin, You did all the right things.
Thank you old enough for spreading you ignorance! It's really great. Religions around the world do not teach that god has control over each individual, and does not control cancer or the dark side.
That being said, so much respect for Bieber and love for this girls family. Although this is tragic, seeing the good in the world makes it a happy day.
Just heartbroken for her parents and thankful for precious littles ones like Avalanna.
My heart goes out to Avalanna's family!
justin is a greeat guy
So sad, but will anyone learn anything from this? Why all the call for prayers for the family? If prayer worked, the little girl wouldn't be dead. Think about it...
What would YOU do for the family? Probably nothing....just remind them that their daughter is NOT in a better place? Come back when you learn what "class" is, because you obviously have none.....
I never said she wasn't in a better place. The truth is, no one really knows. At the least, I would not offer them false, unprovable, patronizing condolences. What happened is terrible. Leave it at that.
You proceed from a false premise, the premise that the answer to a prayer is always, "Yes".
By your reasoning, if prayer worked, no one would die, there would be no illnesses or wars, etc. because all prayers would be answered in the manner wished.
if your a phoney christian or not.
You're right, no one does know...however your whole "yeah it's terrible" does little to help anyone....
But calling people heartless a holes helps people. _.-* THE MORE YOU KNOW
You, sir, are a moron. Leave it at that.
If the answer to all prayers isn't "Yes", then that means God is going to do what he sees fit to do, so again, what is the point of praying in the first place???
Why don't you take your anti-prayer message and stuff it you moron. How selfish can YOU be!
Condolences to the family and fiends.
As a fellow atheist-leaning agnostic, I must say that you are a real dbag. It shouldn't bother you at all if someone else wants to pray, in the exact same manner it shouldn't bother a Christian if you think it's a waste of time. Grow up, you give us a bad name acting like that.
I just love what a little irrefutable logic does to people. They can't provide rational arguments, so they resort to name calling. Gee, the truth really hurts, doesn't it. If you believe prayer works, prove it scientifically. If not, then start thinking to for yourself, instead of believing all the crap you are fed in church on Sunday.
They're calling you names not because they believe in God and you don't, but because you are a tool who needs to learn about coping with loss. It appears you've never lost anyone, and that's good, but some of us have lost loved ones, and the last thing we want to hear is "I would pray for you, but your daughter's already dead. Oh well. I guess your god doesn't care." That's just cruel....
If prayer brings people comfort, what's the harm? I am an atheist, but I have no problem with people applying whatever coping mechanisms they need to get through pain and heartache. And it doesn't hurt this little girl's family to know that people are thinking of them at this sad time. Finally, not a fan of Bieber's music, but he is clearly a first class human being.
Michael, you are confusing God and prayer with a genie and having your wish granted.
Let me guess. You're an engineer, right?
well all need to focus and pray ... especially all the "christians" out there.
Why? If prayer worked, the little girl wouldn't be dead...
a real christian does not use God as a tool.
when i pray i am giving all my strength too that person to live...if they are going to die i pray their journey to God is in peace and they are in peace.
that's the way i do it. praying is not magic its faith.
makes sense that you said "a real christian does not use God as a tool."
and chose to use the name "God"
I'm not a fan of Bieber's music, but as a person you seem like a pretty good guy to me....very good Sir.....
Having lost a child years ago, I can unfortunately understand what the parents are going through....my thoughts a prayers are with you and yours.....
I'm very sorry for your loss...
awful pain .
To put it mildly, I am not in Justin Bieber's demographic, therefore, I have no idea what he sounds like as a singer.
He sounds like a good kid through his actions though. I think that's more important.
As a father, I cannot imagine any greater pain. RIP Avalanna
Let's all take a little time out from all the constant fighting and bickering and be thanful for what we have. This family lost something very precious to them yesterday, so let's be grateful for all the things we still have, at least for one day. May her and her family find comfort and peace.
Poor little girl, so sad, I feel terrible. Bieber is a class act all the way.
we feel sorry for her also
I'm in my 40's and retired Army so I'm not a fan of Bieber's music. But, I have to say this young man has a tremendous amount of class and a big heart. Watching the video of that little girl lighting up when she was talking about their meeting made my day. The picture of her giving him that big kiss on the cheek was the dearest thing I've seen in a long time. Thank you for giving her that joy, Mr. Bieber. I hope more people from his generation follow that example. Bless Avalanna's little heart and may God bring comfort to her family.
Couldn't agree more, though I'm a jarhead or was; at least you're army and not a squid or navy puke. Submariners always gave me the creeps when around 'em, any ways here's a salute and hoping you have a good brew or two tonight. Semper Fi.
I was SO sad to hear about Avalanna's death, her story was particularly close to my heart because I am also a sick girl who loves Justin Bieber to pieces!, I have a Facebook page 'CAMPAIGN FOR SHAMEME ADAMS TO MEET JUSTIN BIEBER'!. I think when you are sick or unwell you need messages like Justin sends out such as #BELIEVE and #NEVERSAYNEVER, and she must have been like this. Justin should be very proud he made her short life extremley happy and her dream not only came true once but a few times I believe. If it had to have been one I am glad she met him!. RIP you sweetie, heaven has a little angel but you will be missed, I feel it for her family and for Justin. I hope before I die I also get the same dream. She inspires me!. x
Shameme- good luck to you, too. Sending you my best wishes for a full recovery. I know that I'm not alone on that, too. Plenty of good people on this blog. I hope they all respond, too. Just know, you have many strangers pulling for you. May you win the fight against your disease. Hang tough!
RIP in Heaven Avalanna! What a blessing you are to others! Praying for your family's strength because I know they're missing you! The chorus in Heaven's choir has increased with your presence babygirl!
I may not like Justin Bieber but he definitely has class.
focus people focus!
I think we all feel bad a 6 year old died. What I think us rational people are not glad about is that Bieber could care less about this girl. How much of his money is he going to donate to research. How much time did he spend with her. Was he there to comfort her at night when she was sick and dying. How about some props for her parents that had to suffer through this. I'm so sick of some manufactured celebrity showing up for 5 minutes to a dying person for image, only to have the ignorant public praise them for such a small sacrifice. How about some acknowledgement of the thousands of people working to cure cancer under tight budgets and corrupt pharmaceutical companies. Lets all celebrate the real heroes not some punk kid.
That's an ignorant and obnoxious statement. As someone who could care less about the hype that Bieber has garnered over the past year or so; I still respect that he would go out of his way to give the little girl's family some comfort and peace of mind. Just think of it this way: if he invested $1 million on cancer research as soon as he found out about the little girl, would that have cured her? The little girl liked Bieber and the young artist treated her family to something special for a change. I applaud him for it.
You proved my point crystal clear. Over-exaggerating the praise he deserves due to his celebrity status. And how come he doesnt give 1 million to cancer research. Why not 10 milliion? Why not 100 million? If she truly was the greatest spirit he's ever known than no price would be too high to try to save others from this fate. And if he did make a massive contribution it should be done in secret not in front of the camera, but thats not going to happen either way. For all you religious folks out there, this is what your Jesus taught you to do.
Maybe he is donating a large sum to cancer research, how would a dipshlt like you know? One thing I notice is that he isn't here posting BS about what others are or are not giving (about which YOU know nothing). GO FIND A LIFE!!!
I can see your point, however can you honestly say you know for certain that he didn't spend more than 5 minutes with her? Perhaps he has helped pay for medical expenses the family has for her treatment. Are you his accountant and know first hand of the things you assume, perhaps he has donated money for research or would you garner that the only reason for doing so would be for a tax break? Maybe he has plans to assist in setting up a fund for research all in her name. I'm not a Justin Beiber fan; for one I'm to old and it isn't my style of music, I can care less about the young mans music, manufactured or not. I do respect him for what he has done for her, it is more than most celebrities do or have done. Please stop assuming things you clearly don't know the answers to; personally I do donate to such causes because I lost my father to cancer a little over a year ago and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of the people who helped prolong his life or helped with experimental procedures and medications. Every day I spent with my father until his death are days I will cherish, and I have so many people to thank for doing so. You sound young and jilted for what ever reason, I was once myself. One day you may wake up and realize doing so wasn't worth it, I'll leave that for you to discover.
Exactly. It's all about the dollars and the fame. Celebrities are money and fame hooers.
hope the family can survive this tragedy.
You are an angel of the LORD!! I have a friend,whos mother,is battling,stage 4 cancer. LOTS OF LOVE,michelle chanler & gloria. you made every1 happy that you knew. take care.
Unfortunately it was bound to happen. Judging by the name this person posted as reflects much; likely a kid and if not I certainly hope this person doesn't have children, especially having to go through what Avalanna and her family have had to endure. The internet is full of cowards and off the cuff people who will say anything so long as they are unknown and not having said their statements face to face with someone...pathetic. No other words to say beyond that IMO.
Avalanna may you rest in peace sweet little angel. May your spirit fly with the winds from sun to sun & your smile grace the morning skies.
What beautiful thoughts you have. Very nice post. All I can say is ditto.
Rest in peace little one, my condolences to family and friends. Losing someone at any age to cancer is agonizing, I can only imagine what her family is going through right now. I'm glad my father enjoyed 53 years of life before his passing last year; I'm a man, yet I found myself tearing up over this story and learning of her fight for life. I've certainly found a new sense of respect for Justin Bieber, at the least you made her young dreams come true; my hat off to you simply an amazing selfless class act that is rare to find from anyone these days.
*Sending hugs your way* Your comment touched my heart.
So sad to hear of the passing of such a beautiful little girl. RIP sweet heart and I will keep your family in my prayers. Really think it is sweet that Justin took time to meet her and spend time with *Mrs. Bieber.
She didn't lose her fight with cancer. When she died, the cancer died. She killed it.
If she didn't have cancer she would still be alive, so yeah the cancer killed her. You heartless a $ $.
What an incredibly dumb thing to say. felix el pendejo
This is such sad news! What Justin Bieber did for this little girl was just wonderful. He reached out to his "littlest fan" and really made her day. You can only imagine the joy that must have brought her & her family. My deepest condolences to the family. Rest in peace, little angel.
Rest in peace
*My thoughts exactly James*
Aw such a sweet story that she got to meet Justin Bieber...and he made the little girls wish come true. My heart goes out to the family. May she rest in peace .
So sad. Brought tears to my eyes. RIP Avalanna. I know God has you wrapped in His arms. *tears*
RIP sweet angel.. My prayers are with her family and friends. My respect to Mr. Beiber for his compassionand class in dealing with this sweet girl.
I am not a Bieber fan, but that guy is a real mensch!
condolences to Mrs. Bieber's family.
May god over this family.She was only a ANGEL.I willkeep this Family in my PRAYER|||
Wow – what an unnecessary, ill-timed comment. Let's try to keep the focus on the 6 year old who just passed and the grieving family she leaves behind instead of your out-of-line jokes on Bieber.
Actually that's what the article should have done. Only talked about the girl and not plugged Bieber's affiliation. Would we suddenly not care if a child lost a battle with cancer had he/she not met some talentless pop puppet?
Im sooooooooooooo sorry to hear that!!!!!!!!!!
Something tells me Mr Bieber will have a very special guardian angel.
Awww. How many people get to leave this world still so full of innocence and so happy? I'm so glad she got to meet him. R.I.P little angel.
*I like your comment*
Little Love, I'm sure Heaven is a better place now that you are there. Enjoy, Dear One.
sorry to hear the news. rip
RIP little sweetie pie.......RIP xo
