Easter, Steve Jobs and Facebook

I don’t watch a lot of TV these days, since I only have Netflix, and I normally don’t watch it either for the lack of time, so when I finally got time this weekend, I went on a “movie binge” and watched 2 movies back to back!

I watched Steve Jobs and The Social Network (both for the first time I must say).

Loved both movies!

Not because of cinematography or costumes, that I usually gravitate towards, but for the inspiring stories. Both of the characters Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg had something in common which made both of them not only eccentric and socially awkward characters but something else that let them change the world in a way that was never done before.

What were those unifying characteristics?

I would summarize it as -” the passionate belief in the impossible”!

That was something that Christian religion introduced more than 2000 years ago. It was something that I always treated as part of the beautiful legend without even ever understanding what it really meant.

Now I have learned from the “tech gods” that It is essentially the belief in the” limitless possibilities”…Both Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg dared to believe in the impossible with such conviction and passion that people around them thought they are crazy.

The truth is they were able to acheive the impossible and unify the world that has never done before.

How does it relate to Christianity?

It connects with the belief of the resurrection of the Christ. Resurrecting from death is the most impossible thing on Earth. If you truly belief that Christ resurrected it means that “impossible is nothing” and that is exactly what great thinkers “..the misfits, …the rebels, …the crazy ones” believe in.

Let me know your thoughts,

Happy Easter Everyone!

  1. To be a Christian, you have to believe in resurrection. To quote Acts 17:31, “inasmuch as he has set a day on which he is going to judge the world of men with justice by a man whom he has designated and has certified to all by raising him from the dead;—”

    We think it’s “impossible” because it is for us. But for the one who created us from the dust of the earth, it’s no big task. But it begs a question . . . If we have a soul that lives on somewhere when we die, why would we need a resurrection?

    Sorry if Ima got too deep.

    Great to see you back around again!
