The spiritual side of Steve Jobs

By Mark Milian, CNN

(CNN) - It's well known that the secret to Apple's meteoric success in the world of consumer technology was the vision, leadership and creativity of Steve Jobs, the company's celebrity founder.

"Steve built a company and culture that is unlike any other in the world and we are going to stay true to that - it is in our DNA," Tim Cook, Jobs' successor, wrote in a staff memo after Jobs resigned from his post as Apple's CEO in August.

What's less talked about is what drove Jobs, who died Wednesday at 56.

    No one has the right to say who is going to hell or not except God. I never understood why man, never lets God do his job when it comes to judgement, not them.

    When Jesus says, "Poor in Spirit," in Mattew, he meant repentant...I learned that in my bible study. There is too much hate is this world...making us unable to see the goodness of God....there is too much people wanting to be right and fighting...God does not want this...we are all his children and we are all imperfect.

    May God come into all your hearts and grow in the hearts of the people who have him already

    You were probably never a Christian to begin with .You are deceiving yourself.My thought is, that had you stayed a lifetime in your "christian" environment and appeared before God at judgement day, you would have been rejected as a false believer.

    And that's the god you want to worship? A god that will send someone to hell because they have doubt. What a sick and twisted religion you follow there Herbert. Why do you desire to be a slave to such an evil deity?

      The book of Matthew chapter five verse 3. Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.

      Do not attack Our religion because you do not fully understand it. So i say to you buy a Holy Bible and read it all. Pray eveyday and ask for forgiveness, So that ye may dwell with your brethern when God, my God comes to reddem his church. His church is your heart. Not the pues and the synagogues.

    Attaining Nirvana by relying in one own self and by breaking attachments cannot redeem mankind, Mankind is redemeemed only because of that supreme sacrifice on the Cross by Christ and belief in Him.

    My stupidity in not remembering the right blog to post this on leads me astray and to post here,,, 😦

    myweightinwords wrote me on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 2:31 pm, stating, @Richard,

    You said, "The love of another in sameness should yes, be of a committal relationship but should not the land’s moralizing laws show appendaged declarations to fortify such? Are we to subvert our land’s laws solely for individualisms’ benefits and welfare? Do the beneficiaries of a two-folded committal relationship in sameness s.e.x. allow for family growth as in having children to further one’s namesakes? Or does such a relationship’s ending bemoan them who just want to love their one and own kind? The behaviorisms of the people should be non-antagonistic and yet should be of a morality basis to indemnify the relatives of morally sound promiscuities."

    myweightinwords A, B, C
    A. Outside the made up words and garbled prose, what I get from this is that you disagree with same gender marriage because it does not lead to children?
    (Tell me of my ‘made up words’ as to which one’s are ‘made up’.)
    (garbled prose you write? Boulderdash!)
    B. It is immoral because it can not produce children?
    (It cannot produce children? Please expound upon “it”)
    C. Please do correct me if I misunderstand.
    (Your “A” question is a statement in drag and not worthy to respond toward.)

    1. The love of another in sameness should yes, be of a committal relationship but should not the land’s moralizing laws show appendaged declarations to fortify such?

    2. Are we to subvert our land’s laws solely for individualisms’ benefits and welfare?

    3. Do the beneficiaries of a two-folded committal relationship in sameness s.e.x. allow for family growth as in having children to further one’s namesakes?

    4. Or does such a relationship’s ending bemoan them who just want to love their one and own kind?

    5. The behaviorisms of the people should be non-antagonistic and yet should be of a morality basis to indemnify the relatives of morally sound promiscuities.

    I asked ‘4’ questions myweightinwords and I surmised with one brief statement. I got answered with 2 questions and a plea. Nice way to scapegoat the passive longevities of obscure noteworthiness. Now that I have broken my paragraphed sentences apart, you may answer them if you wish.

    STEVE JOBS is in HELL

    • JF

      If by hell you mean the ground then I agree with you. If it makes you feel better to make believe that Steve is in a make believe location and burning for eternity then by all means go ahead. You need help Joe.
