I don't remember the part of Jenkins' Hellblazer where John started talking about Heaven and thinking about how he was going to find salvation....
In fact, just the opposite, I remember John playing a con on God at the end of Jenkins' run in order to save his friends.
If you mean that John was trying to change himself and improve himself, then that's totally different. I don't have a problem with John wanting to mature and not make the same mistakes.
Also, I wouldn't want to see that front and center in any Constantine related material as it started. Jenkins was following on the characterization of Delano and Ennis. Constantine had been around a long time, he was over the age of 40. There's a difference between entering that into the character's psyche after nearly 100 issues, versus making that a core component of the character, as if he's just another supernatural character in search of God's forgiveness for his wrong actions.
