The Greatest Truth that Steve Jobs Taught Us

I was a part of the rest of the collective world that sighed in sadness yesterday when hearing that the great inventive dynamo, Steve Jobs, had died. He is being called the “Thomas Edison” of our time for his tenacious vision for innovation, rightly so.

My first question upon hearing of his death was, “Was he a follower of Christ?”. Isn’t it interesting that we rarely ask that question of great innovators until they’ve died. To not ask this question is to value his personal accomplishments above him as a person. In doing some research I discovered that Steve was a self-professed devout Buhhdist. Unless in the process of dying Steve came to a point of faith in Jesus Christ (which is a real possibility) for the Christian  there should be profound sadness. Why? Because it means that Steve did not come to a saving faith in Jesus. If this is true he will not rest in peace.

Truly, Steve Jobs was gifted by God to be a creative genius. God’s common grace to all mankind was seen in what Steve Jobs gave to the world in advancing technology. However, I believe the greatest lesson Steve Jobs teaches mankind is this: Even great visionaries can be blind. Steve had the ability to see innovation on the horizon but he was blind to see Christ as savior and Lord. The only accomplishment and contribution that can save a man was accomplished on the cross through Jesus.

There are those that will find this post as crass and insensitive written so soon after his death. But I would say this: For the next few days his life will be dissected through article, documentary and essay. This to me is the greatest question: Did Steve follow Jesus?  It is the weightiest question that can be asked of any of us.

  1. I really believe that a foreclosed can have a significant effect on the client’s life. Home foreclosures can have a Several to 10 years negative affect on a debtor’s credit report. A new borrower that has applied for a mortgage or just about any loans for instance, knows that the particular worse credit rating is usually, the more challenging it is to acquire a decent loan. In addition, it could possibly affect a borrower’s chance to find a decent place to lease or rent, if that gets to be the alternative property solution. Good blog post.

  2. I have realized that over the course of making a relationship with real estate proprietors, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every single real estate exchange, a percentage is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers don’t “save” the fee. Rather, they try to earn the commission by way of doing an agent’s work. In accomplishing this, they devote their money in addition to time to perform, as best they can, the assignments of an broker. Those duties include getting known the home by marketing, representing the home to all buyers, building a sense of buyer desperation in order to prompt an offer, making arrangement for home inspections, managing qualification checks with the mortgage lender, supervising fixes, and facilitating the closing.
