"That's my religion."

Thanks to Mike for linking to this interview with Bono. I was grabbed by his comments right at the first:

My understanding of the Scriptures has been made simple by the person of Christ. Christ teaches that God is love. What does that mean? What it means for me: a study of the life of Christ. Love here describes itself as a child born in straw poverty, the most vulnerable situation of all, without honor. I don't let my religious world get too complicated. I just kind of go: Well, I think I know what God is. God is love, and as much as I respond [sighs] in allowing myself to be transformed by that love and acting in that love, that's my religion.

One thought on “"That's my religion."”

  1. Not that I entirely disagree with Bono's conclusion, but his methodology is pretty flawed. At least in the 4 canonical gospels, Jesus does not teach "G-d is love" rather the book of 1 John does. Just throwing that out there.
