Beatles "Bigger Than Jesus" FAQ - Lennon and Jesus


Question: Beatles "Bigger Than Jesus" FAQ - Lennon and Jesus
What did John Lennon really think of Jesus and God?
Answer: Quotes from John Lennon:

"God is a concept by which we measure our pain."

"We're all Christ and we`re all Hitler. We are trying to make Christ's message contemporary. We want Christ to win. What would he have done if he had advertisements, TV, records, films and newspapers? The miracle today is communication. So let`s use it."

"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammad and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong."

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"
