    The man even timed his death to come after the release of his last album and a really freaky-grim music video.

    David Bowie turned his own demise into performance art!

    “Ashes to Ashes, fun to funky” 🙂

    Wait, what?

    “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.” 1John 1:8

    This is why nobody likes Evangelicals. They never have anything nice to say about people. Always delivering passive-aggressive declarations of their personal faith and try to belittle those who do not ascribe to their beliefs.

    “if there is time left, pray for Bowie”
    “I will pray for you” is generally an insult in Evangelical-speak. Its plain speaking translation is, “I detest you, but don’t want to appear overly p1ssy about it”.

    Will, go pray for yourself. Your remarks are rude.

    David Bowie was a talented, well respected and prolific artist. A man who by all accounts that we know of, was not a horrific human being.

    At least you are honest enough not to use the “But I am telling the spiritual truth, therefore I don’t need to be civil” excuses.

    I’m sorry, speaking ill of the dead in order to proclaim your religious belief is tasteless, offensive and demonstrates low character.

    “How many lives were screwed up because of him? ”

    Is there a personal story you would like to share here? How did David Bowie ruin YOUR life. I am all ears here.

    Nobody was forced to listen to his music or watch the various media he was in. They did so because it appealed to them. His work was enjoyed by a broad spectrum of people (but not you or other Bible thumping self-righteous rude people). If his work offended you, tough luck. Nobody has to care.

    All art is an expression of the artist. There is no such thing as evil music, art or literature. People like yourself, who seek to burn books usually are also willing to burn authors as well. As for Hitler’s artistic talent, his landscapes were boring.

  • He wasn’t an activist urging people to do this or that.

    I just want to say I am a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and I truly appreciate and respect David Bowie as an artist. Whether he was good or bad, who isn’t? We all have sinned and we all have fallen short. No one can judge David as no one knows his heart. It’s between him and God. I hope he will experience peace in the afterlife. Not all believers are judgmental creeps. Just keep that in mind.

    let he who is without sin cast the first stone…get over it Will

    So what he did was record a number of well received albums, acted in a few films, and was a patron of various artists and the fashion industry.

    If that is shameful, you don’t know the meaning of the word

  • larry

    Frankly people who denounce art works as “degenerate” or “perverse” have more in common with Hitler and Stalin than anyone who opposed such people.

    I am still waiting for the story as to how David Bowie screwed your life up? 🙂

  • Guy

    I think his was a true Christian death. I was raised a Catholic in Rome by a converted anglican mother. I left the Church in 2008, and I became much more a “seeker” like Bowie. I was never a fan of Bowie, I pretty much ignored his existence, apart from a couple of tunes I appreciated. The day he died I felt no sorrow, or at least , just for the artist , not for the man. Then something clicked in me. I started grieving, I cried deeply. I started thinking about him , like he is present. I wanted to stare this story with others and that made me realise that’s what happens when people fall in love with Jesus, they want to testify the prodigy. So, concluding: David Bowie’s death brought me to feel a new meaning of Jesus. If one day I’ll be dying in my bed, I’ll definitely ask for strength from God, Jesus, saints, souls, AND David.

    May The Lord bless you Aharon! We are all sinners but Yeshua (Jesus) gave His life for us, all are welcome to believe in Him, and the God that we serve is awesome!
