Jesus according to Bono

Who is Jesus According to Bono of U2? Watch This Video

(**After I published this post, a couple of members from the Not Ashamed of the Gospel community brought forth some articles in which Bono’s authenticity as a Christian is questioned.  Therefore, please pray and do your own research about Bono.)

You may have heard Bono of the band U2 speaking about his Christian faith before.

When I’ve watched interviews of Bono in the past, I thought he spoke kind of in general terms about his Christianity without getting really into the nitty-gritty details.

If you’re anything like me, you may have been left wondering if Bono’s faith was authentic.

You know how it is, there are so many celebrities who call themselves Christians but their fruit indicates otherwise.

So when I came across this one blog post from the wonderful folks over at the Yes He Is blog, I was surprised.

In this 2-minute excerpt of an interview, Bono goes into detail about what he believes and what Jesus means to him.

So since Easter is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to watch the clip as we are contemplating what Jesus has done for us (although we should be doing that all year long).

So watch the 2-minute video clip and then share it on Facebook and Twitter.

The video reminded me of one of my favorite Scriptures which is John 14:6…

 

Jesus is the way the truth and the life

  1. Man thats awesome. Didn’t know Bono was a believer. Fact is I don’t really know much about him at all. But his interview was awesome. Thanks for sharing

  2. Hello! Got to this from Pinterest. 🙂
    This is great, I love U2! I do wonder how he reconciles his faith with his pro-abortion stance though. Thank you for the post!

    1. I didn’t know Rachel that Bono had a pro-abortion stance. I wonder if he’s changed his mind since he’s gone public with it. It seems like his faith keeps on getting stronger. But it is a good point that you bring up.

      Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. It does not sound to me that he “knows” Jesus as his Savior. He is not sure Jesus was the Son of God?
    I pray someday he comes to know Christ died for his sins and asks Christ into his heart and life.

  4. I do not like to post when something controversial appears online, but I feel convicted to here. Listen carefully Peter, not to be deceived. I believe Bono is a very compassionate and giving man with a sincere heart. But when it comes to being saved, either you are or your not. If you are undecided “who” Jesus is surely you are not. If you asked me, as in this video, “Who is Jesus to you?” I would immediately without hesitation, say “He is the Son of God, He is my Lord and Savior who died on the cross as payment for my sins.” I understand clearly what He did for me.
    Listen again at 1:10 minutes, when Bono is asked, “Who is Jesus?” He says, a great thinker. He went around saying He was the Messiah. HE said He was the Son of God. Was He or was He nuts, Bono states. He believes He was divine and rose from the dead but falls short to say “He is his Lord and Savior.” They talk about promises and Bono has the opportunity again to state what Jesus has done for him, or that He has cleansed him from sin and Bono does not.

    At about 2:00 minutes, Bono states lives have been “touched and inspired” but never states anything about salvation or grace found through the precious blood of Jesus.

    Before a person can be saved, they must realize that they are a sinner in need of a Savior.
    He believes in Jesus that He lived.
    He believes in Jesus as someone divine.
    He says Jesus stated He was the Son of God (Bono does not).
    He states he believes Jesus rose from the dead.
    But….
    the devil also believes these things.

    Jesus clearly stated, “I am the way, the truth and the life….”
    Bono does not have a clear picture of “who” Jesus is and “why” He needed to die for our sins. (never mentioned)

    I know we all like to believe certain things about good people, but good people don’t get into heaven, only
    those who have acknowledged that they have been “born again” and their sins cleansed by their Lord and
    Savior Jesus Christ.

    Again, I am not posting to stir the pot, only because when the obvious is in front of me, HE convicts my heart to answer.

    1. Thank you Jo for sharing your thoughts and the truth. I agree with what you are saying here in regards to salvation and to standing up for the truth.

      A friend of mine sent me some links talking about Bono and I’m investigating it further. Please feel free to always express your opinion and your thoughts here at Not Ashamed of the Gospel. They are always welcome and you’d be surprised at how much they build up other people.

      God bless you Jo!

  5. You are such a gentlemen. It is often frightening to confront and speak, but if we do not, we sin. It is not bout us, it is about “what Christ did for us on the cross.” So many do not understand it. Charles Stanley is preaching on it right now, 1st Baptist Atlanta, on TV. So many think they can be good enough or a priest will cleanse them. It breaks my heart. Have a blessed day of worship, your sister in Christ, JO

    1. Thanks Jo for your honesty and your courage. I love Charles Stanley, he’s a great preacher.

      By the way, I’ve also updated this blog post with a disclaimer asking people who read it to be good Bereans and to pray and do their research about Bono. That was in part thanks to your comment so please be encouraged that you are making a difference when you confront people by speaking the truth in love the way that you did.

  6. Keep on doing what you are doing Peter. Some say, “I wish I could do missionary work.” Well we have the world at our fingertips and can reach those who need to hear the Gospel Message. I worked with Global Media Outreach and it also is an amazing outreach. There are SO MANY who want to know, who have questions, who just need someone on the other end to tell them the true Word of God. What a difference one person can make in the life of the unsaved. We will be ridiculed and persecuted, but we were told by Jesus, “In this world you will have tribulation…” That is okay, this is not my home. Praise God. All for Christ, JO
