The Sad Eternal Damnation Of Steve JobsBy David J. Stewart | August 2014 | Updated May 2016
I don't write articles like this to be unkind; but rather, to wake people up. Steve Jobs blatantly rejected Christianity. There is no doubt that Mr. Jobs went to Hell. If you believe that the holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, then you cannot argue the point. 1st John 2:22, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” The Scriptures warn that whosoever denies Jesus Christ has also denied God the Father. If any man reject Jesus as the Christ, He is of the Devil:
1st John 4:1-4, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
As you've just read, anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ is a liar and an antichrist. The Bible teaches in 1st John 4:1 for believers to try (test) every spirit, to see whether it is the Holy Spirit of God or a familiar spirit (demonic). There are only two sources of all spiritual power, guidance and knowledge: God or Satan. For example: The religion of Buddhism has a spirit of love, kindness and peaceful thoughts; however, the religion also totally rejects Jesus as the Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Therefore, we know Scripturally that Buddhism fails the test presented in 1st John 4:1-4. Buddhism is of the Devil. People often ask, “What gives you the right to criticize and tear down someone else's religion?” The answer is the Word of God...
Titus 1:10-13, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
The famous comedian Robin Williams commit suicide this week. I saw a sign outside a theatre on the news that said Robin Williams is now in Heaven making God laugh. My friend, God is not laughing because Mr. Williams almost assuredly went to Hell in his sins. Robin William's never got saved as far as I can tell. Certainly, there's a tiny chance that he got saved before he killed himself, but it is highly unlikely. I couldn't find any evidence of a profession of faith in Jesus Christ in Robin William's life.
Jesus plainly warned in John 3:5-7, “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” It is simply not true that everyone is a child of God. Unsaved people think everyone goes to Heaven, but they don't. Unless you get born-again by faith alone in Jesus Christ Who died on the cross for your sins, you cannot go to Heaven.
Steve Jobs Wouldn't Heed the Word of God
Luke 24:25, “Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.”
Jesus called the two disciples on the road to Emmaus “fools” for being slow to believe the Scriptures. Apple computer founder, Steve Jobs, was at best religiously complicated and confused. He rejected Christianity outright and was a follower of the false religion of Zen Buddhism. Effectively, Jobs was an atheist because he rejected Christ as God. I mean, whether you believe in God or believe in a false god, effectively it's the same thing, because either way you've rejected the one true God of Israel.
All Muslims are atheists. Why? It's because Islam teaches that their god, Allah, has no son, so he couldn't have died on the cross for anyone's sins. In sharp contrast, Biblical Christianity is based upon the truth that God sent His only begotten (biological) Son into the world to die on the cross in our place (John 3:16-17), to pay our debt of sin (2nd Corinthians 5:21), so we could escape eternal damnation in the fires of Hell (Romans 5:9). Thank you Lord Jesus!!! Anyone who denies Jesus' deity (that He is almighty God Who came in the flesh, John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33) is an atheist. It is said by many that Steve Jobs was an atheist, and at best a Zen Buddhist (which effectively is the same thing as being an atheist Biblically):
Steve Jobs was born in Southern California to a Muslim Syrian immigrant and an American woman. However, the couple put Steve up for adoption and he was taken in by Paul and Clara Jobs.
Regarding Christianity, Jobs once told an interviewer that at age 13, he asked a preacher if God knew about starving children and the preacher replied that yes, God knew everything. Jobs never again considered Christianity.
So where did he go from there? Well, it seems like he was confused. He once said:
Sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. I think it’s 50-50 maybe. But ever since I’ve had cancer, I’ve been thinking about it more. And I find myself believing a bit more. I kind of – maybe it’s cause I want to believe in an afterlife. That when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear. The wisdom you’ve accumulated. Somehow it lives on.
At other times, he just sounds totally atheist:
I saw my life as an arc. And that it would end and compared to that nothing mattered. You’re born alone, you’re gonna die alone. And does anything else really matter? I mean what is it exactly, is it that you have to lose Steve? You know? There’s nothing.
What we do know was that Jobs was into Zen Buddhism. He regularly practiced meditation, traveled to India in search of a personal guru, and even had a Buddhist officiate his marriage in 1991.

It makes me sad to think that anyone is in Hell, burning in fire, but that is what the Holy Bible teaches. Unless your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life friend, you will be cast into the Lake of Fire forever. Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
The Wicked Are Under God's Wrath and Go to Hell
I've heard Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh-Day Adventists (all satanic religions) claim that the Hebrew word (“Sheol”) for hell in the Old Testament only means grave. The word means “realm of the dead.” It refers to the place where the wicked dead go, as proven by Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” If the wicked are turned into Hell, and Hell is only the grave, then this Scripture makes no sense at all, because the righteous also go to the same grave. Clearly the righteous do not go to the same place as do the wicked.
In English we call the place of eternal punishment “Hell.” The Greek is a more powerful language (similar to computer programming languages), so we actually have three different words in the Greek for Hell. Tartarus is where the demons go. The word Hades is the New Testament Greek equivalent to the Hebrew Sheol. The word Gehenna refers to the Lake of Fire, the home of the everlasting damned for all eternity (Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8). See the helpful book, “A BIBLICAL EXAMINATION OF HELL” (.pdf file by Dr. Max D. Younce).
Salvation is 100% completely free, paid for by Jesus' precious blood. If you go to Hell it will be because you willfully chose to reject the free gift of eternal life by faith in the Son of God. God's grace is available to everyone, regardless of what sins you may have committed. If you want to be saved, God will forgive anybody who acknowledges their sinnership, placing their faith in Christ Who died on the cross for their sins. We are saved by GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS (Philippians 3:9; Romans 10:3-4; 4:5-6), and not by any human effort of our own (Titus 3:5; Ephesians 2:8-9).
According to John 3:18, you are already DAMNED (condemned) if you have not received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Psalms 7:11 warns that God is angry with the wicked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. God's wrath is upon all unsaved people. Romans 5:9, “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Christ is our only hope of escaping the wrath of God upon all sinners, through the precious, literal, blood, of Jesus which He sprinkled upon the Mercy Seat in Heaven in the Father's presence (Hebrews 9:12, 9:22-24; 12:24). John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
I've just shared with you numerous Bible passages which teach that God is angry with the wicked. The “wicked” are those who have deliberately rejected God's offer of salvation by receiving Christ as one's personal Savior. If God is faithful, and He always is, then He cannot deny Himself. The price has been paid for your sins on the cross. Jesus paid it all. There are no strings attached to eternal life. Salvation is received, not achieved. It's all yours just for the taking. What a great Savior! But you must receive Christ or you do not have it. God never forces anyone to be saved, nor does He hinder people from getting saved. God never chooses who will or won't be saved.
Please understand that the only way to make God's anger go away from you is to appropriate the free gift of eternal life by faith in Christ Jesus. The very word “PROPITIATION” (modern corrupted versions have foolishly removed this doctrinal word). 1st John 2:2, “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
2nd Peter 2:1, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” I am totally awestruck in amazement every time that I read 2nd Peter 2:1, which says that these false prophets DENIED THE LORD WHO BOUGHT THEM!!! This evidences that Jesus did indeed die for the whole world, including all Christ-rejecters and blasphemers who deny Him.
There are many reasons why people won't come to Jesus Christ to be saved. Sometimes it is bitterness, life's hardships, love for sin, wealth, false religion or family tradition, to name a few reasons. The Devil hides the cross from the lost, so they'll go to Hell.
It's Not Too Late For You Friend
Kindly, Steve Jobs died having a massive net worth of $10,200,000,000 ($19 billion including his estate); yet he doesn't have a single penny in the fires of Hell. I am saddened every time I think about it. God is not willing for any to perish (2nd Peter 3:9 - Note: All Scriptures are quoted only from the trustworthy King James Bible). We are all born with nothing, and we die with nothing!!! 1st Timothy 6:7, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.”
The only thing that will matter when we all die is whether or not we “DIE IN THE LORD.” Revelation 14:13, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Tragically, Steve Jobs did not die in the Lord, but you can if you'd like. Steve Jobs found out what it means to “DIE IN YOUR SINS” (John 8:24). Please don't go to Hell, whoever you may be. It is so easy, free and simple to be saved. Please keep reading.
If you'd like to know for sure that you are saved, that is, born-again, then you simply need to BELIEVE THE GOSPEL. You are a sinner. You and are are both guilty sinners in the sight of a holy God. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” No one deserves Heaven, no one!
Because of our sins, there is a penalty, which is death. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This death includes a second death in the Lake of Fire and brimstone. Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” The good news is that no one has to die the second death. We all must die a physical death, but no one has to go to Hell. If you go to Hell, it will only be because you deliberately rejected Jesus Christ.
As we read in Romans 6:23, eternal life is a “gift” from God. Like everything in this world, nothing comes free. God sent His only begotten Son into the world, Who died on the cross and with His blood paid for our sins. Jesus was buried. Three days later He bodily resurrected from the dead. This is “the Gospel,” as taught in the Holy Scriptures:
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
If you simply BELIEVE in your heart by faith that Christ DIED on the cross for YOUR SINS, and was BURIED, and RAISED UP three days later, you are saved!
John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”
John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
John 3:16-18, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”
We are saved by believing, nothing else! To “repent” means “to change your mind.” Repentance is toward the Gospel itself. No man has ever believed who didn't repent. If you admit that you are a guilty sinner in God's holy eyes for breaking His commandments (Romans 3:19), and receive (believe) the Gospel as payment for your sins, you are immediately, irrevocably, securely and forever saved (Romans 1:16; 1st Corinthians 1:21). It's as simple as that! Please read, “3,000 Souls Saved In One Day!”
Steve Jobs trusted in the humanistic philosophies of Buddhism. To be saved, we all need God's imputed righteousness. If you doubt the Holy Bible, it is only because you have never pursued the truth my friend. The Word of God came into men's hands by approximately 40 different writers, over a time period of 1,500 years. These writers were from different backgrounds, spoke different languages, some were poor and others rich, some were young and others old, they came from different countries, and yet the Bible all harmonizes into one understandable manuscript. Only God could have done that, giving us the Scriptures in a spectacular way, to give us evidence of the Bible's divine origin. If someone doesn't believe that the Bible is God's inspired Word, it is only because they choose not to in lieu of a preponderance of supportive evidence affirming its divine origin.
Steve Jobs was a brilliant computer designer and a skilled programmer; yet he died in his sins without Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and is now burning in the fires of Hell forever. Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” But you say, “I don't believe in Hell.” You need to know that Revelation 21:8 lists the type of people who will be cast into “the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone,” which includes “THE UNBELIEVING”!!! Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
The Bible also lists the “fearful,” who I believe are people who are afraid of being labeled as “religious” by their peers if they receive Jesus Christ, so they avoid the Gospel. The truth is that you don't have to confess Christ to be saved, just as among the chief rulers “MANY BELIEVED” in John 12:42-43, but “THEY DID NOT CONFESS HIM” because of fear of persecution from the Pharisees. I say these things kindly, but sternly. You have been warned!!! I am being your friend, by telling you THE TRUTH. Please don't let pride, fear, embarrassment, wealth, anger against God, or the world's foolishness cause you to burn in Hell for all eternity. Salvation is free to all, but you have to receive the gift by faith alone to have it. You don't even have to pray or ask God to save you, because He has already promised “TO SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE” (1st Corinthians 1:21). If your complete hope for Heaven is that Christ DIED on the cross for your sins, was BURIED, and RESURRECTED three days later for your justification, YOU ARE SAVED!!! That is THE GOSPEL. Believe it oh sinner and eternal life is yours!
Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
