    Damned. I swear to John Lennon and U2 that this whole God malarkey seems like a hoax to me!

    At least one biography of John Lennon I read said that he had a period of believing in Jesus Christ.

    Like Bob Dylon or Eldredge Cleaver, John Lennon (perhaps thought of as an unlikely candidate too) had his time of accepting Jesus Christ. He was very, very troubled towards the end of his life you know? Poor guy.

    The book said that latter he became infuriated with TV evanglist and religious personalities. What else is new?

    I cannot recall the name of the book but it was biographical and not a religious treatment of Lennon's life.

    It is no surpise to me because I know that it is essentially easy to receive Jesus into one's heart. Learning to live by Christ, however, takes a lifetime.

    Recieving Him to be saved takes only a moment.

    I don't know anything about U2. What's that, another loud band ?

    Led by a charming fellow with a case of the old messianic personality.

    John Lennon also harboured disturbing sexually fantasies about his own mother, so, I would conclude, that he's not a good reference for anything, much less the nature of God.

    But if nature is an extension of the attributes of God, John Lennon's fantasies about his mother can tell us something about the divinity.

    When can I start to hear him speak to me? Do I just concentrate real hard and wait for my inner monologue to take on a baritone hebrew accent?

    No, I think your idea is much better. Inspirational, even. Was Burl Ives Canadian?

    The expression that God works in mysterious ways is a powerful statement actually. We expect God to be explainable in terms that we understand which is paradoxical really.

    However, I think that God becomes much more understandable if you believe in re-incarnation (along the principles of the Spiritist Doctrine / Edgar Cayce / Allan Kardec etc.).

    The arguement is that we are here to learn lessons and work toward doing what is right. As we progress, we reap the benefits of right living.

    This is not so different from the ideas of karma.

    It happens to be what I believe.
