    It is no secret that Martin is a master of double-meaning lyrics and normally there are two-three different stories in one song could be traced. Drug-addicted person see heroin everywhere, sexual frustrated ones could notice some young girls and adults intercourse, gay people think that it is obviously gay, straight people assured that it is obviously not and finally - if you lucky enough to reach DM devotee level - you just have some fun. As a result anyone can see everything. But not always. "Personal Jesus" is about Jesus. Just like "Enjoy the Silence" is about silence. Indeed, we own personal Jesus. Call anytime - its free.

    Depeche Mode, Fishers of men, Jesus firsts asked Peter the fisherman to follow Jesus and he would make Peter a fisher of men. Considering Peter started the church and lies in state/statute at the Vatican, St. Peters basilica. You must go to rub Peters toe in Rome. Your own personal Jesus is just that have your own personal Jesus someone to hold, someone to pray to. Like your own marriage it is as individual a relationship as the two in the marriage. I know this song was inspired by Presila Presly book about her marriage and life as Elvis Presly daughter. Most songs of Depeche Mode have a spiritual basis. As with most creative endeavors every character and every story is just a rewrite from the Bible. Northrop Frye found that about all human creations, writings, and books.
