Steve Jobs on the Afterlife

NPR:

On Jobs’ thoughts about God and what happens when you die:

“[One afternoon we] were sitting in his backyard … and he was not in the best of health at the time. … He said, ‘You know, I’m kind of 50/50 on believing in God. But I want to believe that something endures, that your wisdom that you accumulate, that the knowledge that you have somehow is able to endure after you die.’

“And then he pauses, and he says, ‘Maybe that’s just wishful thinking. Maybe that’s just like an on-off switch.’ And he goes, ‘Click, you’re off. You’re gone. It’s over.’ And then he paused for a moment and he said, ‘Maybe that’s why I didn’t like to put on-off switches on Apple devices.’ “

Romans 8:38-39:

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
