A previous poster said that whether Jesus was a nutcase or the true Messiah, he has his/her full respect. Actually, "full" respect would require one to obey where Christ commands. If Jesus actually is the Christ (Messiah), "full respect" will get you nowhere in the way it was being used in the above post. That's exactly Bono's point (and what Jesus says of Himself). You can't take a middle ground and still land up okay at the end of the road if Jesus is the legitimate Messiah. Some more food for thought along those lines: Jesus was an exclusivist -- He stated that He wasn't a way, but the way to God, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). That brings the issue of His identity even more to the forefront of the issue; if Jesus truly is the Messiah, He is not just Savior and Lord, but He is the only way to God and all other means of getting to God are false. For everyone, before conveniently dismissing Jesus as just "another" religious figure or salvation through Him as merely "another" perspective, consider and search whether Jesus is legitimate. Your eternal fate could depend upon His identity; Jesus Himself says it does. "If you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins" (John 8:24) for which there is punishment from God because is the just Judge.
