The Bono Quandary…

bono.jpg Bono and his mates of the mega-group U2 have been in the news a lot lately for their views on politics, world issues and charity events. Bono and U2 also seem to be the topic of choice on several blogs I read. So, I’ll follow suit and jump into the mix. A common question is whether their music has a Christian message or whether Bono and the boys are Christians at all. While he may not fit whatever mold we may want to put him in, Bono talks about how Grace is what keeps him on his knees in this interview. Worth a read.

Thanks to Aaron and MudPuppy for getting the snowball rolling. 🙂

    I’ve read some Bono quotes that would certainly make one think he knows the Lord and I definitely appreciate his heart for the poor of this world. The Father knows his heart, that’s all that really matters!

    We leave for the UK and Ireland in a week… pray for us if you think of us, that the Lord’s presence would go with us, and lives will be touched and drawn to Jesus Christ.

    Blessings to you David!

    Prayers indeed! We’re already trying to figure out how we can get back over to Ireland. We absolutely fell in love with the country and its people.

    Beannacht Dé leat! (God’s blessing with you!)

    Thank you so very much! This will be a journey devoted to praying for the nations and evangelism; ministering in various ways and places.
    We will tell Ireland hello for you, and Gods blessing with you as well!

    I have yet to figure him out but the same could be said about me. But one thing he does well is “being the hands and feet of Jesus.”

    Greetings. Indeed Bono doesn’t fit into the “standardized mold” that we often hold up. If we know them by their fruits, he has some really good fruit. His heart for Africa and his faithfullness to Mrs. Bono for 23 years is very telling. All in all, the best thing is to lift him up in prayer. Thanks for a thought provoking post.

    Have a blessed day in Christ.

    Wow, that is a wonderful article. I must say that I have a new admiration for Bono and the work He is doing. Thanks for sharing.

    Agree with all of the comments so far. Bono has taken his fame and done some outstanding work for the poor and less fortunate. No doubt about it. If only others with his fame, would do the same. Imagine the impact.

    Bono and his crew are most definitely living out the servant nature and caring for the least of these.

    The question as to whether or not he is a Christian, I suppose, depends on your definition of that word. In my definition, I would say yes.

    He is definitely not ashamed to speak the name of the Lord or discuss his reliance on the grace of God in his life. He is the most real and passionate when he is discussing his heartache over suffering and you can hear his dedication to what God’s will for his life is. Fame aside, I think he’d do it anyway.
