Something to chew on from the dusty E-Library of the CoL blog…

Chief of the least

“R.I.P. Steve Jobs”

That was the moniker plastered across Facebook statuses and Twitter feeds yesterday. The anointed king of the digital age had fallen, and the adherents of Mac mania were in mass mourning.

He was a brilliant man. As one Facebook poster aptly stated: “Whether you own an Apple product or not, your life has been affected by the mind of Steve Jobs.” 

Jobs was a master innovator, a creator of epic proportions with a following that included almost cultic fanfare. His yearly keynote addresses were more anticipated than a president’s State of the Union address during a World War. The products he worked so hard to create were digitally masterful and aesthetically pleasing. Admittedly, I’m not a member of the Apple tribe. My wife and I own IPODs we both enjoy but that is the limited scope of our Apple experience. I’m a PC user, not a Mac (sneers welcomed), but particular branding is not the issue here.

  1. God made us creative beings. We are too shine like our Master in heaven. Although a planet or sun or even moon maybe out of our reach it seems a lot of things are not and like the stick on the floor you can pick it up and turn it into something useful or burn it or at worst worship it either way we will all use it for either good or bad and if Jesus knows Mr Job then I reckon He will be held accountable for how He has used his stick just like the twig I may have or the forest that Bill Gates may be entrusted with.

  2. The Word as some will know tells us that men are inventors of evil things. Does this include weapons of warfare? Well when the apostles wanted to bring retribution to towns and people and have them destroyed did not Jesus say “you do not know what manner of spirit you are of” War was not the way and will never be the way. Death is evil and evil brings death even if you are innocent. God does not delight in death at all, neither the weapons that ensue it and to the extent of the inventions man has amassed where war is concerned there will be measurement, Holy measurement. It is the people who want war and then it is the people who blame God for it and then ask why He lets it happen. I have avoided that wrangling countless times and will continue to do so. God never starts wars but He certainly will finish them. Technology has been reputed to have the inspiration of Satan but then I have heard it said that Satan is not a creator but a destroyer. Also Satan apparently likes to block knowledge and keep people ignorant towards God as anyone will be is easier to control that way in degrees of lawlessness sin and particularly pride and so people perish without true knowledge. Something God has told us in the Psalms open quote “My people perish without knowledge through rebellion.” Pride robs anyone of life. To acknowledge ones own efforts without giving God the Glory and thanksgiving can evidently be found thriving among men who invent things otherwise why would they be judged by God as evil? God is true knowledge and His ways thereof and can be trusted above all. Is the web or the tools thereof evil; the truth is I believe only God can say as only He is Judge and upon the use of these inventions, we will be judged. Whether Steve Jobs thanked Christ for what he received in this very short time on earth is not to my knowledge, but one would certainly hope so. The web is not a pure vessel of information. It holds the views of many cults and satanic organisations…porn channels and so on. It is an invention for the cursed world and what the world transpires regardless of the grace of God as to the few who use the web to spread the Word. An electronic library that one day will be utterly destroyed barring the work that God leads in reaching out for people.

  3. His last word still haunt me, though: “Wow!” One day we’ll know what he meant by that. I just hope it was an expression of astonished joy, not unexpected terror.
