I think he is the equivalent of a modern day prophet for sure....

But this really turns people off when he goes over the top.


Thoughts?


yeah, dread, you're definitely right, it was the most exagerate sentence i've ever heard from him, completely out of reason, i hope he'll never does such a statement, it has no sense. moreover i'm still struggling with the yahweh title. many people don't know that is god true name which should not be claimed in vain, i see even people in interference who have used yahweh as nickname, this is quite absurd and shows how, without having knowledge, people can run into mistakes in a so easily way. bono's fault? yeah, too. so claiming himself as little lord jesus hurts my christian faith, if he wants to mention yahweh and jesus then he should learn to preach their word

You can't be serious. So Bono needs to stop writing songs about God??? And tongue in cheek humor hurts your faith?

If your faith is hurt by humor then your faith is weak. If your god has no sense of humor then I feel sorry for it's followers.

I think Bono was just trying to poke fun at himself and his "savior" image, but it came out kind of awkward. I don't see the need to get all uptight over it, though.

you mix humor and faith? i don't. so my christian feeling can't get hurt by such statements? just because it's bono i can't bow to everything he says, if he says something that annoys me i cry it out. if he would hurt any of your feelings i don't think you'd start to laugh, right? so don't investigate in other faiths, feel sorry for yourself if you do that

Yes, my Bible says there's a time for everything under heaven, and that includes humor.

No one said anything about bowing down to Bono.

I said it's weak if you let a joke hurt or deminish your faith.

You said your faith was hurt by what someone said. I'm sorry but I hear everyday that God doesn't exist, that believing is ridiculous, etc and it's never hurt my faith. My faith goes far beyond what others think or say.

And a joke surely isn't going to hurt my faith.

Hell, I read "The Da Vinci Code" and it didn't damage my faith. I couldn't care less about Bono's Jesus jokes.

bono said once "we're one but we're not the same", so it may not hurt you, but it hurts me, it's not a blame.
jesus and his father, yahweh, have a lot of meanings in my life, if someone "jokes" around with them i don't tolerate it.........................you know....................

They have a lot of meaning in Bono, my own, and many others lives as well. He wasn't making fun of you, your beliefs, or God. He was poking fun of himself and how so many criticize him for acting messianic sometimes. THAT'S IT. If it's wrong to mix humor with faith, or to laugh at yourself then humor would be a sin.

I was just going by what you said. You said it hurt your faith.
