Always loved this song "You broke the bonds And you loosed the chains Carried the cross of my shame Oh my shame, you know I believe it."

If you are a long time U2 fan, you didn't have to think to hard about this song to know what Bono was saying. Bono himself has said that this is a song about doubt more than it is about Faith. I love this song because its so real....Bono made it ok for a Christian to admit that through your walk of Faith there can be hills and valleys...moments of doubt or questioning. Lots of Christians like myself, have had moments where your Faith just doesn't seem like its enough......but we know it should be. You must know that Bono grew up in Dublin in the 60's and 70's during " the troubles", I'm quite sure they witnessed alot of anger and conflict. Bono's Mom dies when he is 14...she had a stroke at her own Fathers funeral. Bono and his brother and Father basically " live" together but as us fans know, his Father wasn't too fond of Bono's choice to be a rockstar and over the years there relationship had its tough moments. My point is that this man has written out of some very sad experiences but he did keep his Faith. Just because you write a song back in the 80's, it doesn't mean its how you still feel. I wouldn't blame him at all for having moments of doubt, but how about focusing on the fact that these teenge boys in Dublin were going to Bible study and loving God before there even was a U2. Before anyone tears the man down, they need to do their research.....because there is 37 yrs to look at. By the way....I met him. He was so humble...so kind and took his time to talk to myself and my son when he was already late for soundcheck.

Bono's song digs deep into our souls to bring forth that rich conviction that we must continue the jouney that begins when we realize who Jesus is and what He has asked us to with our lives. As we search and we act we will always find more to look for. For me there is unspeaklable joy in continuing the search for what I am looking for. It the universal longing deep down in our soul.

I am a fan of U2. I have also liked this song since The Joshua Tree came out, and then this version was released on the movie, and then the album, Rattle And Hum. Believing in "Kingdom come and all the colors lead into one" is a good thing. However, I have never understood how this song is accepted as a "Christian" song. Is it because it has a choir? Is that all it takes? How could anyone who has a relationship with Jesus still say " I still haven't found what I'm looking for"?

Born in Harlem, NYC. Keep looking until you find God. He is not lost, we are.

I see some confusion in the comments as to the object of the lyric "I still haven't found what I'm looking for." Perhaps Bono's own words at the 2006 National Prayer Breakfast will best help fill in "What he was looking for." http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/bononationalprayerbreakfast.htm. I truly believe Bono is speaking of reading the teachings of Christ, and not seeing them in action in His Body (The Church). The song, written by an embittered rock star in 1982, is a call for the Church to wake up and begin living the life he sees modeled in Christ's person. Fast-forward to his speech in 2006, and he's patting the Church on the back for heeding the call. The Church has "ruined his schtick" as an embittered rock star. They've taken action! Certainly, there is still a lot of room for cynicism with regard to the Body of Christ today, as always. However, the Church of Christ is alive and well and forcefully advancing the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth! Let's all do what we can and find a local Church body to pour into and help beautify Christ's Bride! Partnering with God and our fellow believers in unity, we can have a greater impact on the orphan, the widow, the poor, and the "lost" all around us.

Elisabeth, I after glancing through some of these, I would agree with many of the comments. However, perhaps Bono's own words at the 2006 National Prayer Breakfast will best help fill in "What he was looking for." http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/bononationalprayerbreakfast.htm I truly believe Bono is speaking of reading the teachings of Christ, and not seeing them in action in His Body (The Church).

Elisabeth 'I believe in Jesus and all that he has done for me.....but I still haven't found what I'm looking for." Is not an accurate paraphrase. Watch the lyric video. Your paraphrase is the reason for your misunderstanding. He does say anything close to your paraphrase. What I think he means is also my experience ? I thought believing in Christ was the end of a journey. To my surprise, it was only the beggining.

Frank Mayers, I don't understand, why you posted this with U2? Was there a reason in regards to pasting , this idea, to make money on U2 coat-tail?

I may be wrong on this one... but I think I heard in one of their concerts that this was written to reflect the hearts of the Israelites when they were wandering in the wilderness in search of the Promised Land. Is Jesus enough? Of course he is... is there more to come for all of us waiting for Heaven? Yes, and we haven't found it yet, but it's coming. From the last book I read revealing several conversations between Bono and a friend journalist I am convinced he knows the Lord. A bit unconventional in some respects I agree but still a genuine Believer.
