Bono....He is my brother.
Anyway I just wanted to copy my comments here I made on a great post on this blog about Bono. I have noticed that many bloggers who are Christian leaders and some who are teaching in seminary schools just can't seem to let people like Bono who follow Christ off the hook without tearing down something they have said that they think don't line up with what they think he should say.
Its a shame there are many Christian leaders that have to nitpick things Bono says publicly. Are they so scared that the will of God will be thwarted if Bono doesn't "say" something exactly "right" and its up to them(being they know the law) to correct it so that the will of God is saved from being thwarted?
I'm not sure but doesn't it say somewhere about they will know us by our love for one another? Does love do this to a brother, especially one that they only see & read about and don't know personally?
Of course the scribes nitpicked Jesus also. I am in no way saying Bono is Jesus, God forbid, but a casual reading of John chapter 7 looks an awful lot like there is nothing new under the sun.
I would name the blogs or articles I am referring to. But anyone who wants to find this out can. I don't want to be unloving toward them by posting their names here and thereby continuing in their same folly.
