Superstar Bono declares Jesus is The Son of God!

CNSNews.com) – Bono, frontman for the Irish band U2, investor, and philanthropist, said he believes Jesus Christ was divine, that he arose from the dead, and that he made promises to the world that will come true.

Bono, who has an estimated worth of $600 million, also said he prays “to Christ” in order “to know the will of God,” adding that he and his family pray together and sometimes go to church to pray for others who are suffering.

“I pray to get to know the will of God, because then the prayers have more chance of coming true — I mean, that’s the thing about prayer,” said Bono in an interview with Ireland’s RTE One last year. “We don’t do it in a very lofty way in our family. It’s just a bunch of us on the bed, usually, we’ve a very big bed in our house. We pray with all our kids, we read the Scriptures, we pray. It’s not even regular.”

 

“Sometimes, if we go to church on a Sunday, we go when the church [service] has ended, and we just go in on our own as a family, for peace and quiet,” he said. “And we’ll pray usually for people we know that are struggling with something, [such as] illness.”

When asked by interviewer Gay Byrne, “Then what or who was Jesus as far as you’re concerned?” Bono said, “I don’t think you’re let off easily by saying [he was] a great thinker or great philosopher. Because, actually, he went around saying he was the Messiah. That’s why he was crucified.”

“He was crucified because he said he was the Son of God,” said the rock musician and businessman. “So, he either, in my view, was the Son of God or he was nuts. Forget rock-and-roll messianic complexes, I mean Charlie Manson-type delirium. And I find it hard to accept that whole millions and millions of lives, half the Earth, for 2,000 years have been touched, have felt their lives touched and inspired by some nutter. I just, I don’t believe it.”

Byrne then asked, “Therefore it follows that you believe he was divine” and “arose physically from the dead,” and you pray to the “risen Jesus?”

Bono said “yes.”

In a final question, Byrne asked, “And you believe he [Jesus] made promises which will come true?”

“Yes, I do,” said Bono.

Bono’s real name is Paul David Hewson. He was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1960 and is married to Alison Hewson. They have four children.

In his philanthropic work, Bono has helped raise awareness and help for people in Africa, particularly in terms of alleviating poverty and improving health care. He has received many awards and honors for his efforts around the world to combat poverty and assist the poor

 Bono here echo’s what C.S Lewis had stated in his book Mere Christianity that either Christ was God or a else he was a Mad man.

“Millions of non-Christians the world over almost always say that Jesus was a good man, not a bad man; that he was a great moral teacher, a sage, a philosopher, a moralist, and a prophet, not a criminal, not a man who deserved to be crucified. But a good man is the one thing he could not possibly have been according to simple common sense and logic. For he claimed to be God.
He said, “Before Abraham was, I Am”, thus speaking the word no Jew dares to speak because it is God’s own private name, spoken by God himself to Moses at the burning bush. Jesus wanted everyone to believe that he was God. He wanted people to worship him. He claimed to forgive everyone’s sins against everyone. (Who can do that but God, the One offended in every sin?) Now what would we think of a person who went around making these claims today? Certainly not that he was a good man or a sage. There are only two possibilities: he either speaks the truth or not. If he speaks the truth, he is God and the case is closed. We must believe him and worship him. If he does not speak the truth, then he is not God but a mere man. But a mere man who wants you to worship him as God is not a good man. He is a very bad man indeed, either morally or intellectually. If he knows that he is not God, then he is morally bad, a liar trying deliberately to deceive you into blasphemy. If he does not know that he is not God, if he sincerely thinks he is God, then he is intellectually bad-in fact, insane.” ..C.S Lewis, Mere Christianity
