What About Job Religious Belief?

It is well known that Steve Job claimed to be a Buddhist after his visit to India. His wedding was presided by a Buddhist monk.

But there was interesting facts about his earlier years. Ed Stetzer of Lifeway Research wrote "Steve Jobs was baptized and instructed in the Christian faith, so we can do a bit more than talk about "common grace," we can also hope that God, in His own ways, at times and places of His choosing, may have worked in Steve's life, at the last, a remembrance of the gifts from Christ He had received in His life. Unless you have been with a person in their last days, you have no idea what goes on in a person's heart and mind in the closing days and moments of life. Let us pray God brought back to Steve the remembrance of what he had been taught as a young man in a Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod confirmation class, taught by my friend Rev. Dr. Martin Taddey, now deceased."

Therefore, we do not know what was his mental condition regarding his belief in his last days. Only God knows. Let us pray for his wife and children to come to faith during their life time.
