Bono – U2 CoExist – Antichrist Agenda – Devilish Alter Ego

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins…Isaiah 58:1 – (KJV)


”The mask reveals the man”


The term pro bono is short for the Latin “pro bono publico,” which means “for the public good.” The term generally refers to free services that a professional provides to poverty-stricken clients, non-profit groups or charitable organizations

Coexist Universalism is the belief that any and all religions or spiritual philosophies lead to “God,” and everyone will be saved in the end regardless of what is practiced. Religion is the godless spiritual ideology of unregenerate (fallen) man.

BONO SPLIT PERSONALITY – ”The mask reveals the man”

Bono / MacPhisto = Bono imagined the Devil…Sons of Cain

Bono regularly dressed up as the devil, singing songs of romantic-religious anguish in costume

For the European leg of U2’s ZooTV tour during the early ’90s, Bono built on Bowie’s over-the-top rock-star creation with his take on the devil MacPhisto. Seeking to distance himself from the almost earnest morality of the band’s Joshua Tree era, Bono imagined the devil as an aging glam rocker who had long ago sold his soul, complete with gold suit, white pancake makeup and horns. MacPhisto performed as part of each set, waxing poetic about politics and morality.

For decades, Bono has been playing the Devil’s advocate personifying such characters on stage as Mirrorball Man, the Fly and MacPhisto, all of which are depictions of the devil. For instance, Bono tells about walking through the Vatican dressed up as the devil. He says: “Macphisto walking through the Vatican. That was great. I really enjoyed that. Walking through the Vatican with my stick thinking, ‘One day this could all be mine’”

”…Jesus, “We used to be so close.”

As Mr. MacPhisto, a cross between Elvis and a cartoonish devil caricature, Bono speaks in the first-person as Satan. The crowd cheers for Bono as he says in reference to Jesus, “We used to be so close.” He continues, “People think I’ve forgotten about Him but I haven’t. I used to find Him so inspiring back then. He invented me. I was His most magnificent creation, the brightest star in His sky. Now look at me, a tired old pop-star in platform shoes.” Bono then asks, “Who can I get to help me make peace with him? Who will mediate for me? Shall I call the United Nations?” Bono proceeds to call the United Nations on stage as the crowd cheers for his devilish performance (online source).

Have you been fooled by this rocker, who talks about his love for Jesus, but in reality shows his love for Satan during his performances?. 

Have you been fooled by this rocker, who talks about his love for Jesus, but in reality shows his love for Satan during his performances? He has an alter ego named “MacPhisto.” Did you know that MacPhisto is in The Screw Tape Letters, by C.S. Lewis. The book’s characters are demons, and MacPhisto is a demon who works hard at communicating with baby Christians to get them away from God!

Dressing up as the devil is great. I enjoyed every minute of it…Bono

Bono? Nope, That’s Mr. Devil MacPhisto:

”four men chopping down the Joshua Tree”

After the enormous success of their two previous records, The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum, U2 became conflicted about which direction to take their sound for their next album—the album that eventually became Achtung, Baby! The guys were growing frustrated and stagnant, and felt they needed some kind of dramatic change. In fact, Bono has said in interviews that Achtung Baby! is the “sound of four men chopping down the Joshua Tree.

The vibe in West Germany also contributed to the genesis of Achtung, Baby! East Germany had been suffering a “brain drain” as more and more educated and artistic people fled to West Germany to escape the communist influence. U2 found that the bohemian climate of artists, writers, thinkers, musicians—straight, gay, and everything in between—inspired the band to bring a more eclectic mix of sounds and instruments into the recording sessions…Shmoop

The Joshua Tree

Where the Streets Have No Name

”I want to run – I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name”

The”cutting down the Joshua Tree” Exposed

U2 refers to ”cutting down the Joshua Tree” is as to ”cutting down Jesus The Christ”, the tree is THE TREE OF LIFE. Now the serpent/SATAN was more cunning than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made

Note that Joshua = Yoshua or Yahushua because there is no “J” sound in Hebrew. The “J” with its “J” sound didn’t come into the English language until about 500 years ago. In fact, the “J” isn’t even found in the original 1611 King James version. Proof. Joshua is Yoshua and Jesus is Yahushua in Hebrew 

The Tree of Life

“What is the meaning of the tree of life?”

Answer: The tree of life, referred to in Genesis, is the symbol of God’s provision for immortality in the Garden of Eden. Of all the trees that were in the Garden of Eden, two were named for their great importance, but just as one—the tree of life—was a blessing to Adam and Eve, the other was to become a curse for all of their posterity. “And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground – trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:9).

The wonderful Tree of Life, discussed in the two “book ends” of the Bible, Genesis and Revelation, is one of the most fascinating subjects in all the inspired word of God. It is first mentioned in Genesis 2:9:

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

The fruit of this tree was “good for food” and Adam was told that he could “freely eat” of it (Genesis 2:16).

However, he was not required to eat its fruit to stay alive! He was created by God to live without dying, with only one restriction—that is, he was NOT to eat of “the tree of knowledge of good and evil,” for that would cause him to die (Genesis 2:17).

Alford’s Greek New Testament, An Exegetical and Critical Commentary:

“Jesus — The same name as Joshua, the deliverer of Israel.”

“Jesus Christ —- The name Jesus means Savior, and was a common name, derived from the ancient Hebrew Jehoshua/Joshua.”Smith’s Bible Dictionary:

A dictionary of the Bible, by James Hastings

“Jesus — The Greek form of the name Joshua or Jeshua. Jeshua —- Yahweh is Salvation or Yahweh is opulence.”

The Joshua Tree in Bible

22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

”…Lord shewed him a tree…”

25 And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

At this point you should know that the Messiah had the same name as Joshua the successor of Moses. Joshua is called Jesus in the Greek New Testament of Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8. Which shows that our Saviour’s name was closer to Joshua than Jesus since He was not just a Jew, but “King of the Jews” Mt. 2:2 & Jn. 19:19, thus we understand that Gabriel never delivered a Greek name to a Hebrew or Jewish baby! However Joshua is also called Jehoshua in Num. 13:16 & I Chr. 7:27

And He shall be like a tree.” see Psalm 1:2, 3. This TREE that healed the waters is a fit emblem of Jehoshua /Joshua/Jesus/YAHUSHUA who was cut down like this tree and cast into the waters, which represents “multitudes, nations, and people” (Revelation 17:15). Which need healing!

Waters in Hebrew represents nations

All have sinned in breaking the law (commandments, instructions, law & statutes in the bible/Torah). Sin is a disease that people need to be healed of! “With His stripes we are healed.” Isa. 53:5

Star is called Wormwood

In the C.S. Lewis’ twisted novel The Screwtape Letters, which tells of a chief demon by the name of Screwtape instructing a younger demon, Wormwood, how to distract and tempt the human that has been assigned to him by, for example, twisting the truth in almost imperceptible ways

The opposite seems to happen in the book of Revelation, the good man made the waters sweet, but the bad man makes them bitter. A fallen star represents Satan “how art thou fallen from heaven.” (Isa 14:13) “There fell a great star (symbolic of an angel, see Rev. 1:20) [Lucifer], burning as it were a lamp (compare Ezek 1:13 & Rev 4:5), and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third became wormwood; and many died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” Rev 8:10, 11

When this fallen angel pretends to be the Messiah, the waters will not be made sweet as a result, but made bitter….. “By their fruits ye shall know them!” More Here

The sacrifice of Christ on the Cross

Because God knew that Adam would fail the conditions of his immortality, He provided for One who would redeem fallen mankind. Through one man, Adam, sin entered the world, but through another Man, Jesus Christ, redemption through the forgiveness of sin is available to all (Romans 5:17). Those who avail themselves of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross will see the tree of life again, for it stands in the middle of the Holy City, the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2, 22:1-2). Its water is the constant flow of everlasting life from God’s throne to God’s people.

Everything you know is WRONG?


We decided to have some fun being other people

“Through the Eighties we tried to be ourselves and failed when the lights were on. Which is what set us up for The Tree is Jesus The Christ, it’s the tree of life Bono refers to as ”cutting down the Joshua Tree”. We decided to have some fun being other people. That’s when we bumped into that great line of Oscar Wilde’s: ‘The mask reveals the man.’”Bono

The Fly

”Sell your soul”

Bono appeared as the The Fly in the 1994 Zoo TV tour, the Vertigo tour in 2005, and the film U23D

“The Fly” made its live debut on 29 February 1992 on the opening night of the Zoo TV Tour, and it was subsequently played at every show on the tour. For Zoo TV performances, Bono portrayed his “Fly” alter-ego, which he had developed into a leather-clad egomaniac. He described the character’s outfit as having Lou Reed’s glasses, Elvis Presley‘s jacket, and Jim Morrison‘s leather pants.[21] To match the character’s dark fashion, Bono dyed his naturally brown hair black.[22] Bono began each concert as “The Fly” and would continue to play the character for most of the first half of the concert. 

The U2 phrase, “Mock the devil and he will flee from thee” appears in the Zoo TV performance of “The Fly.” Other words and phrases were rapidly flashed on screens several stories high such as, “666,” “Guilt is not of God,” “Everything you know is wrong,” and various obscenities (online source). On the Vertigo tour in Hawaii, other messages were displayed like, “The secret is your self,” and “Sell your soul” (online source).

The secret is your self,” and “Sell your soul

“brute beasts”

But the Bible says: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Mocking the devil, either in words or in costume, is also spoken of in the Bible in a very negative way. Both Peter and Jude speak of those who would mock or speak evil of the devil as “brute beasts” They say:

“The way I saw ‘The Fly’ was like an obscene phone call from hell, but the guy likes it there. He’s like calling home, saying, ‘I like it.’ It’s a deranged kind of character. We have all these kind of people that we are, and there’s some that you just don’t want to let out in public. He’s one of them.” – Bono, NME

Excerpt from ”The Fly”

It’s no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploded ’cause of one man’s lie

It’s hard to walk away
But you could have it all
We could have it all
We could have it all some day
But love, we shine like a burning star
We’re falling from the sky tonight

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer!

How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawnIsaiah 14:12

U2 pride – Have Pride (In the Name of Love)

The song is about singular “people” (including Christ as man) that lived their life with pride…Bono

The song is a tribute or illustration or reminder to us, of martyrs to this ideal. It speaks to how they lived their life with an inner Pride in all of humanity and that this Pride is really an expression of God’s love for all of humanity. These people did what they did because they were trying to spread this message of God’s love for all of mankind. Bono

Matthew 4King James Version (KJV)

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

“I Believe in Father Christmas” Lyrics by U2

The ONE, The coming ONE – AntiChrist

What “spirit” is Bono talking about? Anarchy has everything to do with lawlessness and rebellion. It is in Bono’s favourite Bible translation that the Antichrist is described as the “anarchic” one, not the Holy Spirit. Eugene Peterson’s translation of 2 Thessalonians 2:6-12 about the Antichrist, whom he calls “the Anarchist,” says:

”You’ll also remember that I told you the Anarchist is being held back until just the right time. That doesn’t mean that the spirit of anarchy is not now at work. It is, secretly and underground. But the time will come when the Anarchist will no longer be held back, but will be let loose. But don’t worry. The Master Jesus will be right on his heels and blow him away. The Master appears and—puff!—the Anarchist is out of there.

The Anarchist’s coming is all Satan’s work. All his power and signs and miracles are fake, evil sleight of hand that plays to the gallery of those who hate the truth that could save them. And since they’re so obsessed with evil, God rubs their noses in it—gives them what they want. Since they refuse to trust truth, they’re banished to their chosen world of lies and illusions” (Peterson, Eugene. The Message Bible).

“ONE” was the song that saved U2

In many ways, “One” was the song that saved U2… a breakthrough occurred

“At the instant we were recording it,” said The Edge, “I got a very strong sense of its power. We were all playing together in the big recording room, a huge, eerie ballroom full of ghosts of the war, and everything fell into place. It was a reassuring moment… It’s the reason you’re in a band—when the spirit descends upon you and you create something truly affecting. ‘One’ is an incredibly moving piece. It hits straight into the heart.”…Shmoop

”…when the spirit descends upon…”

Bono said that the lyrics of “One,” like those of many of his most emotionally affecting creations, “just fell out of the sky, a gift.”…”one love, one heart”

Bono – in drag – sings to his own father

The meaning of the song gets even more complicated when you take into account the music videos. Remarkably, the band made three separate videos to accompany the song, and they could not be more different from one another.

The first video version, directed by Anton Corbjin and shot in sepia, shows the band in Berlin, driving in Trabant cars, and dressed in drag. Bono—in drag—sings to his own father. Many fans and critics have interpreted the video to mean that “One” is the story of a gay son confessing to his father that he is HIV-positive. The fact that proceeds from the single were donated exclusively to AIDS charities further fuelled this line of speculation.

But the second video takes things in a completely different direction. Directed by Mark Pellington, it shows footage of running buffaloes, blooming flowers (sunflowers and orchids), and the word “one” in many different languages (also at one point, the word “smell” appears across the flowers). Okay then.

Finally, the third version depicts Bono sitting in a bar, smoking a cheroot, interspersed with footage of the band performing the song live

The gospel according to Aid

In the beginning there was nothing … and then there was Aid, and Bono

Chapter 1: In the beginning

  1. In the beginning was the word about change and the change was with Aid, and the change was Aid.
  2. All things were made by Aid; and without Aid there was nothing made.

Chapter 2: Sufficiency

  1. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will have its own government.
  2. Sufficient for each day is its own DfID grants.

Chapter 3: Love and trust

  1. For foreign donors loved the third world so much that they gave their only begotten Aid, that whosoever accepts it and takes some loans by the side will not perish but have everlasting help.
  2. Trust in the donor with all your heart and do not lean upon your own understanding, but in all your ways take notice of his Aid.

Chapter 4: The evil Chinese

  1. The Chinese only comes to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that you may have Aid and have it to the full.
  2. Avoid the yuan from the Chinese and reject their investments.

The ONE and RED Campaign

A movement under the disguise of charity to the coming  ONE ANTI-CHRIST


The coming of the lawless ONE is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, {10} and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. {11} And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, {12} that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Bono’s ONE campaign has become the “Third Way,” which all political parties can celebrate as an issue bigger then democrats and republicans alike. Politicians and celebrities alike join Bono’s anti-Gospel, social justice ONE campaign.

Bono’s faith has been an ongoing factor in his advocacy work, and it even cropped up in the lyrics of some of his most famous U2 hits. From ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’: “I believe in the kingdom come/Then all the colors will bleed into ONE.”

”I believe in the kingdom come/Then all the colors will bleed into ONE.” Bono

”I stand with the sons of Cain” Bono

The bible tells us the judgement for those who stand with the sons of cain

1 John 3:12King James Version (KJV)

12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

Jude 11-13King James Version (KJV)

”…to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.”

11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

That perfect quote is from the YouTube description of the damning compilation above showing candidate Hillary Clinton doing what she does best.

Highlights include:

– Lying about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia.

– Lying about all of her grandparents being immigrants.

– Lying about being for gay marriage.

– Lying about her secret email server. 

– Lying about being a critic of NAFTA.

And, of course, there’s Benghazi, which involved her lying to the faces of grieving families about what led to the death of their loved ones.

Bono’s Fanatics

Joel Osteen

J. OSTEEN: My son loves Bono.


J. OSTEEN: Loves Bono. I think Bono is a — you know, a great example of using his gifts. He’s — he’s built something great now. He’s helping others. So I like people like that…”


  • Eugene Peterson, author of The Message, says U2 has a prophetic voice to the world and says Bono is a prophet like John the Baptist (foreword to Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog).
  • Brian Walsh believes that U2’s lyrics should be used for seminary training and as commentaries alongside the Bible, and that U2’s concerts should be studied to see “how worship really happens in a postmodern world” (Get Up Off Your Knees).
  • Mark Mulder has taught a U2 course at Calvin College and he observes that the school shares Bono’s view that the world will not be destroyed but will be renewed (“Calvin College on U2,” Christianity Today, Feb. 2005).
  • Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo say that Bono is moving the world toward the kingdom of God and increasing the kingdom of God in the here and now (McLaren and Campolo, Adventures in Missing the Point, 2003, pp. 50, 51).
  • Bill Hybels interviewed Bono at Willowcreek Community Church’s Leadership Summit in 2006 and that interview has been shown in thousands of churches all over the world.
  • Rick Warren invited Bono to Saddleback Church to help launch his P.E.A.C.E. program.
  • Rob Bell testifies that the first time he really experienced God was at a U2 concert (Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith, p. 72).
  • Emerging leader Steven Taylor calls Bono “a worship leader” and on his blog promotes “Seven Things I Learned from Bono about Worship Leading.”
  • Christianity Today almost worships U2. When Episcopalian ministers Raewynne Whiteley and Beth Maynard published “Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalog,” Christianity Today responded with a review entitled “The Legend of Bono Vox: Lessons Learned in the Church of U2.”

Woe unto you,…false prophets.”

It is a fearful thing to be highly regarded by not only pop-Christian leaders, but also top celebrities and politicians. Jesus said, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:26)

How is it that a professing Christian like Bono can be on top of the world?

How is it that a professing Christian like Bono can be on top of the world? The world hears and receives it own. Jesus said, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you;” (John 15:19)

“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world;” (John 17:14)

“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them;” (1 John 4:5)

“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (1 John 5:19)

Bono is embraced and given the upper-hand in both religious and political spheres of influence. Many are following Bono in social justice but throwing the Gospel out the window. Bono’s hip Christianity will inspire many Christians to embrace ecumenism and apostasy in the cloak of philanthropy. This is a politicized social Gospel which is contrary to the doctrine of Christ…Bibleprophecy

Unequally Yoked

The New Yorker’s Joshua Rothman perceptively writes about U2’s ongoing tension with the Christian faith and doubt:

The story of U2 might be this: having begun as a band that was uncertain about the idea of pursuing a life of faith through music, they have resolved that uncertainty. Their thin ecclesiology has become thick. Today, they are their own faith community….” Joshua Rothman

For more about U2’s apparent faith/doubt paradox, and to find out what one scholar asserts is “the most heard, most successful hymn of the last few decades” read Rothman’s article “The Church of U2”

‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,’ U2


This first set of lyrics comes from one of their popular songs, “I Still Haven’t found What I’m Looking For”.

U2 are Antichrist, and of the Devil

One thing very clever, and very dangerous about song lyrics is that so many of them are written in the first person (and U2’s lyrics are no exception. They are almost exclusively written in the first person.) So when you sing along with the song, you are actually expressing agreement with the heart and soul of the writer. (You too?)

Here is the first lyric:
“You broke the bonds, and loosed the chains, carried the cross of my shame… You know I believe it!”
At first glance, this almost sounds Christian. In fact, it is because of lyrics like these being strewn about their songs, that many people have claimed them to be a Christian band. But what does the very next line of the song say?
“But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.”
He never says what it is that he is looking for, but he makes it clear that it isn’t the cross of Christ. That song is an absolute rejection of Christ, and it is done very deceitfully by including the words, “You know I believe it.” But since he was looking for something else, he was clearly rejecting the cross of Christ and turning away from it. (And anyone who sings along with this song does the same thing!)

Bono antichrist Pope

The next set of lyrics comes from the very next song on the same album: “With or Without You”. (Notice, even the title of this song conveys double-mindedness.)
“Through the storm we reach the shore…” Stop right there a minute. What does that remind you of? It reminds me of Christ and His disciples in the ship. Jesus walks on the water to them, gets in the ship, the winds stop, and they make it to shore. So he’s speaking as one of Christ’s disciples? (Remember though, that Judas Iscariot was also on the ship.)
The next line says,
“You give it all, but I want more.”
Once again, Christ isn’t “good enough” for him. Once again, Christ is rejected.

These next two lyrics are more blatantly against Christ, and downright blasphemous.
This next one is from the song, “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. We know that in Great Britain and other English-speaking European countries, that the word “bloody” is a strong curse word, used to describe extreme disgust. It is equivalent to, or maybe even stronger than the “f” word in America. (This song is also supposed to be an antiwar song, which is what the other aspect that the word “bloody” is supposedly referring to.)
So watch this now.
  “And we’ve only yet begun, to claim the victory Jesus won…”
(next line)
  “On, Sunday, Bloody Sunday!”
So the victory over sin death and hell that Jesus won by His resurrection from the dead is, to the writer, a cursed thing! He was basically cursing the day that Jesus rose from the dead! (And this writer calls himself “Bono”, which means, “good”. He calls evil good and good evil, just like Scripture says. He will be cursing the day he was born one day, unless he repents.)

This last one is from “Love Rescue Me”.
It seems that he was a little too lazy this time to be deceptive ,and just comes out and says it.
  “I have cursed thy rod and staff. they no longer comfort me. Love, rescue me!”
(That gave me the creeps even typing that out!)
This is a clear and obvious reference to Psalm 23 (“Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me”). He blatantly outright curses the rod and staff of the Lord! He hates His correction, and curses Him! Then he asks “love” to rescue him. What love is that? It obviously isn’t the love of God that he’s speaking of. It’s the “love” that the whore, the harlot, offers.
This time, he not only rejects Christ (again!), he actually says what he’s rejecting Christ in favor of: the mother harlots, and of all abominations of the earth. That’s who he “loves”.

U2 are Antichrist, and of the devil. There are dozens more examples that prove this even more, but this should be enough to close the case. It is for me…Dan Brooks

U2 are Antichrist, and of the Devil


The members of U2 do not support any specific church or denomination. Very rarely do they attend church at all. But one church that Bono will attend from time to time is Glide Memorial United Methodist Church located in San Francisco. Bono attended a special service back in 1992, to honor Bill Clinton’s presidential election.

”I don’t want to go to no heaven…”

“Speaking at a meeting connected with the 1972 United Methodist Church Quadrennial Conference, Cecil Williams, pastor of the Glide Memorial Methodist Church, said, “I don’t want to go to no heaven … I don’t believe in that stuff. I think it’s a lot of – – – – [vulgarity].” A Jewish rabbi is on William’s staff. Williams was the Grand Marshall of the San Francisco Gay Pride parade and the chairman of his board was a homosexual. He has been “marrying” homosexuals since 1965 and says, “I have not married a single couple at Glide who weren’t already living together” (Williams, speaking at the Centenary United Methodist Church, St. Louis, quoted in Blu-Print, April 25, 1972). Long ago William’s church replaced the choir with a rock band, and its “celebrations” have included immoral dancing and even complete nudity.

After attending a service at Glide Memorial, a newspaper editor wrote, “The service, in my opinion, was an insult to every Christian attending and was the most disgusting display of vulgarity and sensuousness I have ever seen anywhere.” [2] – source

Bono believes that heaven and hell are here and now. He does not believe in a literal hell as is described in the Word of God.

The members of U2 do not believe Christianity should have rules and regulations. “I’m really interested in and influenced by the spiritual side of Christianity, rather than the legislative side, the rules and regulations” (Edge, U2: The Rolling Stone Files, p. 21).


“The punishment of the wicked in hell is as never ending as the bliss of the righteous in heaven. Jesus Himself indicates that punishment in hell is just as everlasting as life in heaven (Matthew 25:46). The wicked are forever subject to the fury and the wrath of God. Those in hell will acknowledge the perfect justice of God (Psalm 76:10). Those who are in hell will know that their punishment is just and that they alone are to blame (Deuteronomy 32:3-5). Yes, hell is real. Yes, hell is a place of torment and punishment that lasts forever and ever, with no end. Praise God that, through Jesus, we can escape this eternal fate (John 3:16, 18, 36).” [3] – source

Are those in the Emerging Churches saved but extremely shallow and immature? Or is it possible that they never were saved in the first place? I can’t make that call, but it distresses me greatly to watch people who name the name of Jesus as their Savior, following after false teachers who preach a different gospel.

I do know that the false teachers will be judged harshly.

James 3:1 clearly states it:

“My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.”

Speak truth about false Teachers

When I speak truth about false teachers to their followers, I am attacked and accused of judging. We will go in circles about this, but it always comes back to being told that I am a judgmental and mean spirited person. I always show them the scriptures which clearly condemn the heresies, but they will not look at God’s Word; or if they do look, they take it completely out of context. Sometimes I feel like ignoring these types, but then I remember that the Lord wants us to always speak truth…by

My name is Bono and I am a rock star.

Me, I’m in love with this country called America. I’m a huge fan of America, ….I love America because America is not just a country, it’s an idea.

All seeing Eye – Satanic Symbolism in U2 Yahweh

Bono is Loved by Emerging Church leaders

“But U2 is much more than a popular rock band. U2 has a great influence in the emerging church and the contemporary worship movement. U2’s lead singer Bono is praised almost universally among contemporary and emerging Christians. Phil Johnson observes that “Bono seems to be the chief theologian of the Emerging Church Movement” (Absolutely Not! Exposing the Post-modern Errors of the Emerging Church, p. 9).

“Bono played a far more significant role on the formative years on those who became emergent than anyone else, from a human standpoint. Bono, in the 1980s, was, if not worshipped, then absolutely adored by millions of Christian youth who were hanging on his every word. They saw his cool kind of Christianity. He helped lead people into what eventually became the emerging church. Bono has led people into a version of Christianity that is so slippery, so undefinable, so liberal, yet he is considered the main icon of the emerging church” (Joseph Schimmel, The Submerging Church, DVD, 2012).” [1] – source


The Blind leading the blind

“Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true. Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true.” Bono


Coexist – No Peace but WAR

”“They have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace” (Ezekiel 13:10)….”

”…They Say Peace, Safety; THEN Sudden Destruction…”1 Thessalonians 5:3


For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3

How To Dismantle An Idolized Bono

It was a euphoric experience. During the first few songs, I stood, along with the rest of the stadium, as we pumped our fists into the air and sang along with every word. The energy in the air was emotionally overwhelming. And if you’ve never been to a U2 show, let me tell you that it was everything you’d ever expect it to be.

But it was also much, much more.

About five songs into their set, Bono stopped the show and strapped on a headband with writing on it. I stared up at the JumboTron to see that the handwritten lettering said: COEXIST.

Coexisting sounds like a great idea. I fully support the peaceful philanthropy that Bono has encouraged, and this seemed like another way that he was trying to spread the message.

Except, it started to feel like more than a political message. 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—and he began to repeat:

”…words like a mantra…”

“Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true. Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true.”

He repeated the words like a mantra, and some people even began to repeat it with him. I suddenly wanted to crawl out of my skin. Was Bono, my supposed brother in Christ, preaching some kind of universalism? In just a few seconds, I went from agreeing with him about Christ-like “coexistence” to being creeped out by the ungodly, untrue thing he was saying. What’s going on here? What if he believes that all ways are the same, and he just thinks of Christianity as his particular way? Aren’t universalism and true Christianity mutually exclusive?

I’ve heard the urban legends of amazing things Bono has said about his faith, I’ve read the books, and I’ve peered deep into everything he’s said hoping to find something that makes his beliefs clear. For years, I’ve adored him and clung to the notion that he is believer, too. After all, he identifies himself with Christianity, doesn’t he?

”…he stated that lie so boldly…”

When he stated that lie so boldly, it devastated me. It was, without question, the most disturbing experience of my life; I felt like I’d been covered in bile. As I looked around, I saw all the people standing and chanting with him—it was disgusting and beautiful all at once. Unity can be so enticing. It made me think of the one world religion and how that will probably look benign and beautiful from the outside, too. I even started to wonder if universalism just might be poised to be that religion. All these things were running through my head…Tara Leigh Cobble

Bono’s Unexpected Response to ‘Who Is Jesus?’

U2 frontman Bono talks about his faith and answers the question “Who is Jesus?” in the video below.

Bono’s hip and cool Christianity

Once, again Bono’s hip and cool Christianity has deceived many in recent days from Focus on the Familyt o World Net Daily. Joe Kovacs’ article entitled “U2’s Bono: Yes, Jesus is the Son of God,” presents quotes from Bono and and U2 band members over the years affirming their Christian faith. For instance, Bono is quoted, “I believe that Jesus was, you know, the Son of God.”1

Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family hosted an aired conversation with Bono.2 He followed up the interview with an article entitled “Why Orthodox Christians Should Appreciate an Unorthodox Bono” in which he defends Bono’s “very real Christian faith.” Daly says, “Bono may at times be a bit unorthodox in his approach, but he is quite orthodox in the areas that matter most – loving God and loving people.”3 Daly incorporated statistics on how Bono’s efforts are changing the world from a humanitarian standpoint.

Sadly, many Christians are being deceived by Bono’s Christianity.Philanthropy is no substitute for the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Christians should minister medical help to the sick, give to the poor, and educate the uneducated. But this is no substitute for the Gospel. Jesus said, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:15,16). How many of those who have been saved from extreme poverty through Bono’s ONE Campaign are now saved from their sins through the same effort? Can social justice, debt relief, and elimination of the AIDS epidemic bring glory to God when it is completely unconnected to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Bono’s Unorthodoxy

Daly says orthodox Christians should appreciate an unorthodox Bono. This irrational and anti-doctrinal stance resonates with popular phrases like like “deeds, not creeds”, “head knowledge vs. heart knowledge,” and “plurality of truth.” Paul the Apostle did not make concession for false doctrine but exhorted Timothy, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (2 Timothy 4:3). Daly had a perfect opportunity to do just that on his Focus on the Family interview with Bono. But the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

Ironically, Bono, though a guest on Focus on the Family, holds to many ideas destructive to the family unit such as his support of homosexuality and abortion. Bono stated, “My bottom line on any sexuality is that love is the most important thing. That love is it. Any way people want to love each other is OK by me. That’s different from abuse, be it homosexual or heterosexual.”4When asked, “How do you feel, for instance, about abortion?” Bono responded, “I just have my own ideas. I believe that it’s a woman’s right to choose. Absolutely.”5

While Daly exalted Bono as a strong family man, FoxNews reports with photographic evidence on how Bono was busted partying with teenage girls. The article says:

 The curse of Facebook has now hit U2 lead singer Bono. . . Pictures of the 48-year-old rocker with his arm around two bikini-clad teenagers in St Tropez were posted on the popular social site complete with diary details. Bono was on vacation with long-time friend Simon Carmody, a musician and former member of Irish band Golden Horde. The Irishmen met up with two 19-year-olds, American fashion student Andrea Feick and her British friend Hannah Emerson. . .

The images show Bono wearing his trademark hat and sunglasses while drinking with the two girls at the Nikki Beach bar in St Tropez. Later that evening, they took a stroll along the beach, then made their way to a luxury yacht, thought to be the Cyan, a $12 million, 140ft yacht with six cabins owned by U2 guitarist The Edge. Bono, Carmody and the girls partied into the night on the yacht. Bono’s 26-year marriage to wife Ali is famously strong.6

Almost always, Bono challenges taboos in his public speeches with profane language. Appearing on the Golden Globe Awards broadcast live in 2003, Bono shouted the f-word. The incident was investigated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which declared Bono’s language “profane” but decided not to fine the stations.7

Bono on Fundamentalists

When Bono was asked if he believed that Jesus is the way, and if that biblical injunction denied that followers of other religions could enter paradise, he answered:

 I don’t accept that. I don’t accept that fundamentalist concept. I believe, what is it? “The way is narrow as the eye of the needle,” and all that. But I think that’s just to keep the fundamentalists out. . . . (laughs)

I never really accepted the whole “born again” tag.8

Bono’s Ecumenism

On the contrary, Bono is ecumnical in his promoting of the three “Abrahamic faiths.” On U2’s 2005 Vertigo tour, Bono sought to bridge all faiths into a global religion. The word “COEXIST” appeared on a giant screen—the “C” in the symbol of the Islamic crescent, the “X” as the Jewish star of David, and “T” as the Christian cross. Bono led their fans in a chant singing, “Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—It’s True.”

As for the apostate Roman Catholic Church, at Georgetown University, Bono jovially said, “Everyone knows God is a Catholic, right?”10 Furthermore, Bono said,

Let’s not get too hard on the Holy Roman Church here. The Church has its problems, but the older I get, the more comfort I find there … murmuring prayers, stories told in stained-glass windows, the colors of Catholicism–purple mauve, yellow, red–the burning incense. My friend Gavin Friday says Catholicism is the glam-rock of religion.11

Bono on Grace

In an interview with the band Oasis, member Noel Gallagher recalls a three-hour conversation with Bono about God:

[B]efore going to see U2 in Manchester recently, me and me girlfriend were saying, “I wonder what it is with Bono and God?” Anyway, we’re sat round a table after the gig and I go, “Explain it to me ’cause I was brought up Catholic and it means f*** all to me.” We had a good three-hour conversation about his religious philosophy, which is basically, “Go to God, tell him what all your flaws are and say, ‘Can you work with me?’” Which is completely different to the “Don’t drink, don’t screw, don’t take drugs and always go to church” bollocks you get taught at school.12

Granted, Noel Gallagher is a secondary source of Bono’s views on God’s grace. However, in another interview, Bono describes his own beliefs about grace. He says:

It’s a remarkable thing, the idea that there’s some sort of hierarchy to sin . . . It’s something I can never figure out, the idea that sexual immorality is somehow much worse than, say, institutional greed. Somewhere in the back of the religious mind is this idea that we reap what we sow is missing the entire New Testament and the concept of grace completely.13

However, this idea that we reap what we sow is specifically taught in the New Testament. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:7-9) “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 1:4)

Bono says:

But I’d be in big trouble if Karma was going to finally be my judge. I’d be in deep s***. It doesn’t excuse my mistakes, but I’m holding out for Grace. I’m holding out that Jesus took my sins onto the Cross, because I know who I am, and I hope I don’t have to depend on my own religiosity.14

But Bono’s understanding of grace is not the life-transforming power of God unto salvation. Paul the Apostle says we have received grace for obedience of the faith. “We have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name.” (Romans 1:5) If we are under God’s grace, then sin has no more power over us (Romans 6:14). God’s grace equips us for good works: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

Bono on Judgment

Bono promotes his agenda to end extreme poverty with biblical ignorance and/or Bible twisting. For instance, he says:

There are 2,103 verses of Scripture pertaining to the poor. Jesus Christ only speaks of judgment once. It is not all about the things that the church bangs on about. It is not about sexual immorality, and it is not about megalomania, or vanity. It is about the poor. “I was naked and you clothed me. I was a stranger and you let me in.” This is at the heart of the gospel.15

Does Jesus only speak about judgment once? Certainly Jesus and the apostles instructed us to remember the poor, but Jesus makes several statements about judgment and the Judgment. This judgment has much to do with people’s faith and obedience toward God, whether they were righteous or wicked (see Matthew 5:22; 12:36-37; 13:40-43,49,50).

Bono says it’s not about sexual immorality, but Jesus specifically addresses the sexually immoral in reference to judgment saying, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8). Jesus also mentioned how fire and brimstone rained down upon the sexually corrupt city of Sodom (Luke 17:28-29). Again, Jesus speaks of judgment in relation to sexual sin when He warned the church of Thyatira saying, “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols” (Revelation 2:20). The book of Revelation continues to link sexual immorality to God’s judgment and wrath: “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts” (Revelation 9:21); “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” (Revelation 22:14-15).

Postmodern Pop Christian Superman


Across the nation, young evangelicals are naming Rick Warren or Bono as their role model for social engagement, rather than a Christian Right leader, says Michael Gerson, senior research fellow in the Center on Faith & International Affairs at the Institute for Global Engagement.

Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forrest, Calif., is known for mobilizing evangelical churches in the battle against HIV/AID in Africa, while U2 frontman Bono is one of the world’s leading anti-poverty activists

The most significant leaders within the popular megachurch movement including Rick Warren all idolize Bono as some sort of Christian Superman. Senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, Bill Hybels hosted the 2009 annual Leadership Summit. Among the 17 speakers that appeared, U2 lead singer Bono was interviewed via satellite. In an article titled “What Bono Taught Me About Fighting Poverty”, Bill Hybels wrote:

Faith leaders the world over expected this day would come. What we didn’t expect was that it would take an Irish rock star to demand the dawn.

As leaders, there are so many things we must get better at: casting vision, building teams, solving problems, enforcing values, and building the next generation of leaders. But if we excel in those areas and still neglect to use our leadership octane to address God’s clear mandate to serve the poor, what have we really gained?

Since Bono’s clarion call three years ago, well-resourced churches have banded together to take a bite out of poverty, pouring vast amounts of resources into building orphanages, clinics, schools, and sports fields through partnerships with under resourced churches around the globe. Not that the ultimate judge comes in the form of a leather-clad superstar in shades, but still it was gratifying to hear Bono’s assessment of progress to date: “I knew [the church] was a sleeping giant, but I didn’t know the giant could run so fast.”17

Rick Warren

CNN Money reported that Rick Warren has also “forged ties” with Bono, who arranged to make him official pastor of the 2004 Live 8 concert in Philadelphia.18 Warren recently tweeted a “good article on Bono.”

Both Bono and the Purpose Driven Pastor Rick Warren are compromising the Gospel of Jesus Christ in order to work together for debt-relief and AIDS programs. The peace and social justice that Bono advocates goes hand-in-hand with Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan. One New York Times article states:

But more liberals and evangelicals are realizing that you don’t have to convert people; sometimes you can just work with them. The world is suddenly crowded with people like Rick Warren and Bono who are trying to step out of the logic of the culture war so they can accomplish more in the poverty war.”20

In the prologue of Sun Stand Still, seeker-driven pastor Steven Furtick recalls his experience at a U2 concert within the Time Warner Cable Arena where he would later preach to over ten thousand people. Furtick writes:

I can’t lie–it’s a pretty cool feeling to have Bono as your opening act. Even is his show was four and half years before. . .

I was about to preach the gospel from the same spot where I watched one of the biggest rock bands in the world play, “Where the Streets Have No Name.” . . .

This is how it feels to share the stage with Bono.21

Apologist Tim Keller, in his book The Reason for God, offers Bono’s comments on Jesus as the Son of God and says Bono “personally felt the radical implications of Jesus’s claims.22

Richard Stearns, president of World Vision hails Bono as a “prophetic voice, one of both passion and vision.” He says Bono, “may have done more to advance the cause of the poor in the last twenty-five years than anyone alive.”23

Philip Yancey speaks of seeing Bono hush 20,000 screaming fans to silence, then lead them in a psalm though he admits that some “who thundered in applause were praising only Bono.” Yancey says he prays for “the rock star Bono and his prophetic challenge to the church.”24

Bono and U2 as a prophetic voice

In an Emergent book called Get Up Off Your Knees, several contributing authors including Eugene Peterson, author of The Message Bible translation, praise Bono and U2 as a prophetic voice. One contributor, Brian Walsh, believes U2 lyrics should be taught in seminaries and that U2 concerts demonstrate how worship should be done in a postmodern Emerging culture. In fact, Calvin College offered a class which analyzed U2’s influence on Christians.25 Contributor to the book, Brian Walsh states further:

Why isn’t the U2 catalog integral to the curricula of theological seminaries around the world? Why aren’t there courses on biblical interpretation where Bono’s lyrics are set side by side with biblical texts and their commentators? Why don’t liturgists study concert footage to see how worship really happens in a postmodern world?”26

Following the book’s release, Christianity Today idolized Bono in an article entitled “The Legend of Bono Vox, Lessons Learned in the Church of U2.” In the book, Bono is likened to John the Baptist. It states:

If they do not explicitly proclaim the Kingdom, they certainly prepare the way for that proclamation in much the same way that John the Baptist prepared for the kerygma of Jesus. . .

A voice crying in the wilderness not unlike that of John the Baptist we’ve been hearing throughout the Advent season.

Rob Bell

Emergent Church leader Rob Bell says:

I remember the first time I was truly in awe of God. I was caught up the first time in my life in something so massive and loving and transcendent and . . . true. Something I was sure could be trusted. I specifically remember thinking the universe was safe, in spite of all the horrible, tragic things in the world. I remember being overwhelmed with the word true. Underneath it all life is somehow . . . good . . . and I was sixteen and at a U2 concert. The Joshua Tree tour. When they started with the song “Where the Streets Have No Name.” I thought I was going to spontaneously combust with joy. This was real. This mattered. Whatever it was, I wanted more

Doug Pagitt

Doug Pagitt speaks favorably of Bono’s ecumenical COEXIST message saying:

Through an email I read an article on the Relevant website of one persons experience at a concert. I can’t find the article on the website, but I read it in the email. It is called “How to Dismantle an Idolized Bono”. She was disturbed by Bono’s call to Coexist (which is as much a marketing effort of a line of products as anything else, it seems to me). But the articles author raises concerns about Bono not being what she thought because of his call for “oneness” and his use of the Coexist logo which included the Crescent Moon, Star of David, and Cross. The article makes statements that made we groan aloud, and yell in frustration a couple of times. It drove me to Bono’s side, to come to his defense, to join the Coexist crowd. So, here’s to you my man Bono.29

There are many examples of Emergents quoting Bono as if he were a theologian. For instance, in the book, Listening to Beliefs of Emerging Churches: Five Perspectives by Robert Webber and Mark Driscoll, we read:

Bono of the band U2, in a Rolling Stone interview, stated that he sees the Bible as what “sustains” him. He also called the Bible an “anchor” and a “plumb line.” I like Bono’s anchor analogy. When we are in a boat that is anchored, we have freedom to drift around, but there is a limit to the drifting.30

Brian McLaren

On Emergent spokesperson Brian McLaren’s website, one of his readers poses the question, “Why Bother With Church at All?” to which McLaren posted an answer. It is interesting in the reader’s post that they praise Bono for his version of Christianity, going to the length of proclaiming Bono as the “leader” of the Emergent Church. They write:

I think of Bono of U2, who has for years lamented the irrelevance of organized religion and yet conducts praise and worship services for 25,000 people all the while creating a commercial and culturally viable perch from which he can model a compelling vision of a social gospel. This guy is the leader of the “emergent church” movement… not a bunch of dissatisfied ex-Jesus movement pastors fawning after a book deal to tell the church world how to do it better.”

Tony Campolo

In Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo’s book Adventures in Missing the Point, Campolo devotes much time in his “Kingdom of God” chapter to praising Bono. He writes, “U2’s lead singer Bono is using his wealth and celebrity status to do just that: increase the kingdom of God in the here and now.”32Campolo elaborates on Bono’s good works of going to Ethiopia and performing concerts to aid in famine and work in orphanages. Campolo says of Bono:

He now works fiercely to change the policies of governments and of organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund . . . Politicians with views as diverse as Bill Clinton and Jesse Helms have taken Bono seriously and joined him in successful efforts to reduce Third World debts. . . However unlikely you think it is for a rock star to be an instrument of God, Bono has the marks of one.33

Evolving World, Emerging Church

An article from Bangor Daily News neatly sums it up well. In Bangor Seminary’s 2012 convocation called “Evolving World, Emerging Church,” Rev. Steven Lewis called it “humanitarian spirituality” and said, “Salvation in the 21st century is being a good human being,” and pointed to rock star Bono, celebrities Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.34

On the Emergent Village website, Bono is labeled as a “Prophetic Preacher.” His speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 2, 2006 was called “his best sermon yet” by Emergent Village.35

So significant is Bono’s influence in the Emerging Church, Phil Johnson of Grace to You made a stunning statement:

That reminds me of a couple of other things I wanted to mention but can’t really take time to elaborate on. This may help you more than anything I have said so far to understand the flavor of the “emerging church movement”: Bono—the Irish rocker and politico of U2 fame—seems to be the unofficial icon of the movement. If you’ve been tuned into pop-culture at any time over the past two decades and know anything about Bono, that might help you to grasp something about the look and feel of the movement. (My favorite fact about Bono is that he named one of his sons “Elijah Bob Patricus Guggi-Q.”)

Anyway, Emergent types seem to quote Bono all the time. I would say that he sometimes seems to be the chief theologian of the “emerging church movement.”

Bono the World Leader

bono for presAs stated above, many young evangelicals are naming Bono and Rick Warren as their role models. It is interesting that both the Purpose Driven pastor Rick Warren and the U2 superstar Bono are deeply involved in the three different sectors of society: the public sector of governments, the private sector of businesses, and the social sector of community organizations, including faith-based organizations. Forbes reported:

This is, after all, a man [Rick Warren] who networks with the leaders of the free world, Presidents and presidential hopefuls and assorted dignitaries, while helping combat AIDS through personal relationships with rock music superstars such as Bono.37

Bono’s star status has enabled him to secure meetings with a variety of influential public figures including Tony Blair, George Bush, Barak Obama, Dmitry Medvedev, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Not only is Bono being praised in the religious realm, but many politicians look to Bono as a leader as well. World Bank President Jim Yong Kim recently turned to Bono to talk about solutions and actions needed to end extreme poverty. The political aspects of Bono’s agenda cannot be denied. Even today’s celebrities, politicians, and presidents turn to Bono as the “world leader” that can “save the world.” In an autobiography, Tony Blair writes:

[Bono] could have been a president or prime minister standing on his head. He had an absolutely natural gift for politicking, was great with people, very smart and an inspirational speaker… motivated by an abundant desire to keep on improving, never really content or relaxed.”38

global citizen and Superman

Bono, as the ultimate global citizen and Superman has profound influence in the business, government and religious sectors of society. He shrouds his agenda as the Kingdom of God. Campolo writes:

Bono is using his wealth and celebrity status to do just that: increase the kingdom of God in the here and now. Even back in 1982 he was part of the Live Aid and Band-Aid concerts, whose earnings helped Ethiopians suffering through famine. . . .

He now works fiercely to change the policies of governments and of organizations like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund—in order that funding for public health, education, and essential social services will increase rather than decrease.39

Bono’s ONE campaign

ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History. 

Bono’s ONE campaign has become the “Third Way,” which all political parties can celebrate as an issue bigger then democrats and republicans alike. Politicians and celebrities alike join Bono’s anti-Gospel, social justice ONE campaign.


It is a fearful thing to be highly regarded by not only pop-Christian leaders, but also top celebrities and politicians. Jesus said, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:26) How is it that a professing Christian like Bono can be on top of the world? The world hears and receives it own. Jesus said, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you;” (John 15:19) “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world;” (John 17:14) “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them;” (1 John 4:5) “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (1 John 5:19)

To embrace ecumenism and Apostasy

Bono is embraced and given the upper-hand in both religious and political spheres of influence. Many are following Bono in social justice but throwing the Gospel out the window. Bono’s hip Christianity will inspire many Christians to embrace ecumenism and apostasy in the cloak of philanthropy. This is a politicized social Gospel which is contrary to the doctrine of Christ.

Apart from his prolific music career, Bono is also an avid philanthropist and social entrepreneur. In 2002 he co-founded DATA, an AIDS and poverty awareness organization that would go on to create ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History.

Bono’s faith has been an ongoing factor in his advocacy work, and it even cropped up in the lyrics of some of his most famous U2 hits. From ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’: “I believe in the kingdom come/Then all the colors will bleed into one.”

  1. Bono is a “Book of Matthew” person. That is the book he references on a regular basis lyrically, in discourse with Senators and Heads of State when it comes to all of our responsibility of the poor, and he has for his entire live known and pledged his life to Jesus Christ as his lord and savior. Anyone who has listened to U2 from 1979 through 1993 will know this; and anyone who is aware of Bono’s activities in support of the Global Fund to save lives would know this. I’m not sure what this article is trying to point out but at least posting the interview as a nice thought.
