The faux religion of Steve Jobs

Forget the forbidden fruit logo and the cult of Apple jokes. The legacy of Steve Jobs is anything but religious.

Apple was conceived in the heady days of the counterculture movement. While Jobs and friend Steve Wozniak were busy hacking into AT&T’s long-distance phone lines from a Berkeley dorm room in the 1970s, the culture was awash in New Age experimentation and social unrest. Traditional institutions were under siege by idealistic youth rejecting what they viewed as mass-marketed delusions.

At the top of the hit list was organized religion. When Jobs and Wozniak got the phone hacking device to work, their first call was to the Vatican. They proceeded to hang up on the pope’s personal secretary before he could connect the call to the Holy Father. Jobs the iconoclast relished the prank. ...

Chlonist, you might like this article, What makes a liberal?. It is fairly good. In other words there can be two kinds of liberals one who support Universal Health Care and still another who supports queer marriages.

However, Job's religion had little to do with liberalism, and nothing to do with Christianity, he did hold to a false religion,

Jacob W. Kapp wrote:
(4) Practical atheism.

It has nothing at all to do with belief. Indeed it accepts the affirmations of theism. It has reference wholly to the mode of life. It is to live as though there was no God.

It takes the form often of complete indifference to the claims of the Divine Being or again of outbroken and defiant wickedness (Ps 14:1). That this form of atheism is widely prevalent is well known. It is accompanied in many cases with some form of unbelief or prejudice or false opinion of the church or Christianity...practical atheism is widespread in its influence and a dangerous element in our modern lif

"It was a sublime experience for the young seeker who saw drugs as a gateway to expanding consciousness and thinking differently"

The worst name I can think of for Jobs is that he was a Liberal. He would like that and indeed prefer to be known as Liberal. This is the way of worldliness and sadly it is the opposite of Jobs perceptions of society. He probably saw himself as anti-establishment and postmodernist. But the way of politics and the modern mind-set is Liberal which we can see in the politicians who are destroying authority and morals today.

True religion - Christianity - is the radical and alternative to worldliness and its Liberal philosophy. But then only a small "Remnant" can ever perceive this.

"Faux" religion finds many expressions today and in history. The idolatry of the Roman Catholic church is "Faux" religion. The Liberalism of the Anglican/Episcopalian is "Faux" religion. And indeed they stem from the same source as Jobs little philosophic journey. Now that would be something he would hate to accept.
