Bono and Christianity - Part 2

I posted earlier on Bono's peculiar brand of Christianity (July 11, 2005). You can read here of another concert-goer's evaluation of one of Bono's "sermons" at a recent New York City concert.

It appears that after a set of songs, Bono pointed to his headband, described in the article as "the “C” in “coexist” was the Islamic crescent moon, the “X” was the Star of David, and the “T” was the cross of Christ. Bono pointed at the symbols on his headband—first to the cross, then to the star, then to the crescent moon.

What is more shocking is what happened next - "he began to repeat: 'Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true. Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true.'"

I don't expect Bono to be a theologian but he represents himself as a Christian - one who allegedly believes Jesus when the Lord says, "No one comes to the Father except by Me."

No one comes to the Father except by Jesus or perhaps more accurately thru what Jesu is

namely grace, truth and love

it is my belief that upon each individual's death a moment of clarity (like near the death experiences) is given to all those who haven't had an adequate hearing of the gospel (and that includes most everyone- we Christians haven't given the best account of ourselves)
Jesus himself allows us to humbly choose Him or to willfully and clearly reject him.
The way to salvation was taught us by Jesus in the parable of the Pharisee (of whom a great deal are christians today) and the Publican (Who can be just about anyone).
