The richest Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk who is not a religiously inclined person has revealed how he finds the teachings of Jesus in the Christian Bible fascinating.
Speaking in a recent interview with the popular Christian satire site The Babylon Bee, the Tesla CEO shared his thoughts about Jesus.
The famous billionaire who founded SpaceX in 2002 made an appearance on a TV show last month. He sat down with the organization’s CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Creative Director for an in-depth interview. They discussed wokeness, the rich and more.
During the show Elon Musk was asked if he would accept Jesus Christ as his “personal Lord and Savior.”
Musk then interjected: “How come we’re doing the show on a Sunday? Why aren’t you heathens in church? God said don’t work on Sundays, OK. You guys are going straight to Hell for this one.”
The TV Host added “To make this Church, we’re wondering if you could do us a quick solid and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior?”
Musk said that he respects and agrees with “the principles that Jesus advocated,” such as forgiveness and “treating people as you wish to be treated.”
“Things like turn the other cheek are very important, as opposed to an eye for an eye. An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind,” Musk maintained.
Musk’s response was celebrated as the entrepreneur ended his comment by saying he’ll be saved.
“But hey, if Jesus is saving people, I mean, I won’t stand in His way. Sure, I’ll be saved. Why not?” Musk stated.“I think he just said yes,”
Musk, who was born in South Africa, also said he was baptized as a child and partook in communion.
In past remarks about his Space X project after the Dragon Capsule completed a splash landing in the Gulf of Mexico in 2020, the chief engineer and CEO of SpaceX revealed that he prayed.
“I’m not very religious, but I prayed for this one,” Musk said at one point during his speech. Musk has often been described as atheist or agnostic.
In 2013, Musk was asked during an interview with actor Rainn Wilson if he worships anything. He said he doesn’t “really worship anything” but devotes himself to the “advancement of humanity using technology.” When asked if he prayed, Musk said that he didn’t even pray when he almost died of Malaria. It’s unclear if his beliefs have evolved.
