I just read a fascinating interview with U2’s Bono. Bono has often been accused by American evangelicals of adhering to nothing more than a “social gospel.” I think he understands the Gospel a bit more than evangelicals have given him credit for. In fact, he may understand and live out the Gospel better than most of the Christians I know. Here are a few excerpts from the article:
“It’s very annoying following this person of Christ around, because he’s very demanding of your life,” he said while chuckling. “You don’t have to go to university and do a Ph.D. to understand this stuff. You just go to the person of Christ.”
“We have a pastor who said to us, ‘Stop asking God to bless what you’re doing, Bono.’ Which by the way, I constantly do. He said, ‘Find out what God is doing, ’cause it’s already blessed,’” Bono said. “And when you align yourself with God’s purpose as described in the Scriptures, something special happens to your life. You’re in alignment.”
The article is a great read. Check it out here.
