Hope. The Oxygen of Human Societies.

Oct 9, 2011

The Secular Prophet , an article published this weekend in the Wall Street Journal after the passing of Steve Jobs, shapes an important conversation about the reality of our desperate need for hope as a human society. Mr. Crouch who is the editor-at-large of Christianity Today Magazine provides a context for considering the secular and non-secular or faith based perspectives. He illustrated how Mr. Job’s Apple became a religion of hope in a hopeless world and by comparison how the hope born of faith brings peace, purpose AND the promise to transcend this lifetime, taking you to the promised land.  

It has been said that human beings can live for 40 days without food, four days without water and four minutes without air but, they can not live four seconds without hope. 

Hope is a virtue, not mere optimism and it, more than anything else, is what bridges those of us who believe in heaven and those who don’t. It is our common denominator.  I love the reality that among the many, many contributions Steve Jobs made on this earth that will have changed it forever, sparking this conversation was one of them.
