According to the Christian post Steve Jobs death has spured internet discussion concerning his faith and final destination:

The sudden death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs on Wednesday has spurred Internet discussion on whether he was a Christian.

Jobs, who was in fact a Buddhist, died Wednesday at the age of 56. His passing was publicized by a statement released by Apple’s board of directors.

“Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve,” read the statement.

Just hours after the news on his death broke, a user going by the name of “Ann Coulter” began a discussion on Yahoo! Answers that posed the question: “Was Steve Jobs a Christian? Just wondering where he is right now…”

Respondents to the discussion either thought Jobs was an atheist or a Buddhist. A few replied to the thread saying that he was a genius regardless so his religious beliefs.

Twitter was also buzzing with discussion about Job’s faith before he passed. Numerous people issued tweets on his passing and added that they hoped he was a Christian before he died.

Order Online: Muslims, Christians, and Jesus

“I pray that Steve Jobs became a Christian, before he passed away,” tweeted @AakashRaut.

Twitter user @mattshiloh tweeted, “A sad day for the tech world. Sorry to see you go Steve Jobs. While you weren't a Christian, I will pray for your soul.”

Jobs became a Buddhist after a trip to India in 1974. Two years later, Jobs co-founded Apple and marketed the world's first personal computer, the Apple II.

He was indeed a rare gem in the world of technology......the case of whether he was a christian or not is not relevant here.. The point is that Steve has left a lasting legacy and an indelible mark on earth..According to Obama, "Steve Jobs was among the greatest American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it". "The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented".................may his soul rest in peace

Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and chairman paid tribute to his one time rival, said: "Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

"The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honour."
