    I can't believe that people (including Christians) are citing with approval Steve Jobs's 2005 speech at Stanford. It is horrendous and purely nihilistic.I guess we Americans are just conditioned to admire anyone worth a billion dollars. It is part of our general emptiness.

    Crazy, huh? I can't believe Our Lord ate with sinners and tax collectors either. And that harlot caught in the act of adultery? Can't believe he let her get away with that. Forgave her even, and turned the tables on her accusers. Indeed He is a merciful God, and I for one take His counsel "I desire mercy, not sacrifice" to heart in matters such as the passing of Mr. Jobs. I prayed for his soul even, as I would pray for yours if I was notified of your passing.I saw this quote today that speaks to an obvious, and yet often ignored ideal of lived Christian charity: Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear, and the blind can see. Mark TwainThe fact that Mr. Twain was an agnostic takes not one thing away from his thoughts above, as they dovetail so clearly with the precepts Our Lord spoke when questioned by the young scholar of the law."Go and do likewise."

    Both the quotes of Steve Jobs as well comments of Frank herein above are admirable indeed when looking from a purely christian angle. Best wishes.
