go ahead and say it


"Oh yeah".

("In about 1985, I read the teachings of Christ and was instantly struck by the idea that Christ was somehow divine. When I say I love Christ and love the teachings of Christ, I mean that in the most simple and naïve and subjective way. I'm not saying I'm right, and I certainly wouldn't criticize anyone else's beliefs.

"I can't really know anything. Having said that, though, on a very subjective level I love Christ. I perceive Christ to be God, but I predicate that with the knowledge that I'm small and not nearly as old as the universe that I live in. I take my beliefs seriously for myself, but I would be very uncomfortable trying to tell anyone that I was right.

"I read the New Testament, specifically the Gospels, and I was struck at their divinity, feeling that humans could not have figured this out on their own. We're just not bright enough" [Moby in various interviews, sourced from Wikipedia]).

Cool song! Moby sounds like an interesting, intellectual person. I like that quote about being "struck at their divinity", that humans just aren't smart enough to have come up with what's in the Gospels. It's so true.

I love Moby's music but had no idea about his spirituality! Thanks so much for sharing this!

Thanks also for following my blog! It's great to meet you.

If you have a minute to spare next week I'd be thrilled if you could link up this post to my Tuesday Tune linky party! This is brilliant!

Best wishes and hope you have a great Sunday.

Thanks for this post- I have read Moby's thoughts on his faith before and I am also very interested in Jesus's ministry. You have made me think again about the Gospels. Thank you, Jo xx
