The Gospel of Steve Jobs: Secular Form of Hope
Note this article originally ran in January 2011.

Steve Jobs was the evangelist of this particular kind of progress—and he was the perfect evangelist because he had no competing source of hope. In his celebrated Stanford commencement address (which is itself an elegant, excellent model of the genre), he spoke frankly about his initial cancer diagnosis in 2003. It's worth pondering what Jobs did, and didn't, say:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it's quite ...

from the article wrote:
As remarkable as Steve Jobs is in countless ways—as a designer, an innovator, a (ruthless and demanding) leader—his most singular quality has been his ability to articulate a perfectly secular form of hope. Nothing exemplifies that ability more than Apple's early logo, which slapped a rainbow on the very archetype of human fallenness and failure—the bitten fruit—and made it a sign of promise and progress.

"It is a religion of hope in a hopeless world, hope that your ordinary and mortal life can be elegant and meaningful, even if it will soon be dated, dusty, and discarded like a 2001 iPod."

Rom 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

This secular 'hope' is visual, felt, experienced and eventually lost. As Paul teaches a hope seen - is simply not a real hope. Those who suffer from this 'secular hope' are living in a dream of something better just round the corner. Under the domain of sin they are fooled into a false hope like the Liberal churches with their false religion. Blinded by Satan they seek worldly satisfactions such as mammon, covetousness, celebrity status and artificial beauty might provide.
Such a hope is a sad and sorry existence which the reprobate seeks to overcome by his own limited abilities, only to find at the end failure and mortality.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

1 Peter 1
23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and abiding word of God.
24 For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
25 BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ABIDES FOREVER." And this is the word which was preached to you.
Mark 8
36 "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
37 "For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."---NASB

It's sad that Mr. Jobs didn't open a Bible more.
