2011) "Steve Jobs, R.I.P.""
I've often wondered about people like Steve Jobs who die
without ever being exposed to the saving knowledge of Jesus
Christ. Do you suppose he could yet be saved in the spirit
and forgiven in light of the fact he was never given a chance to
say yes or no to Jesus? I can't help but feel a man so
brilliant, lacking in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, would be
condemned to hell and punishment by God, through no fault of his
own. How would he know to even search for it?
(A side-bar here: I heard on the radio that if
Steve found there was no heaven, he would invent
it.) My question is; based on his known background,
does that condemn him now and for eternity?
God knows the hearts of us all! If God knows
whether or not Steve Jobs would have been saved, had he KNOWN,
would that in and of itself save him? Any thoughts?
His quote: "All pride, all fear of embarrassment or
failure - these things just fall away in the face of
death... Your time is limited, so don't waste it living
someone else's life.", does seem to have a Christian ring to it!
It goes back to, please don't punish me for
something I did when I didn't know.... God is a Merciful,
Kind, Patient and Loving God. I believe Steve is in His
Hands being enlightened for the first time. I think we'll
see him in the rapture looking joyfully stunned!
Thank You, LORD!
(just my opinion...)
