i truly hope he was a Christian, there are things that suggest he could've been, also things that suggest he might not have been. one thing that troubles me though, is he was so real and honest about his life and how he was, it seems if he was a Christian, he would definitely have mentioned it or something to that effect, he doesn't seem the type to hide it. not even for ratings. what do you think?
---bekah on 9/19/09


John Edward the medium from the show crossing over will be at the crocosium at Australia ZOO contacting steve on Jan 5th..Terri Irwin states that Edward has been a personal friend if steve for years...how completely dissapointing to find this out.
---Pam on 12/30/07


Bob=What you are saying can be reduced to AD HOMINUM.

When onw wants to learn about salvation, does one go to a book on biology, palentology, archeology, diamond mining, or does one go to the scriptures?

When one wants to learn about chemistry, diamond mining, palentology, etc- does one go to the book of auto mechanics, carpet laying, the scriptures?
---MikeM on 11/17/07


Judy, only the Lord knows if anyone is saved or not. The stories go on about steve maybe coming to Christ before he died. I would hope that he did. Acually I would hope everyone here was saved, but as I can read the answers many or not. They don't believe in the Word of God, and we are reborn by the Spirit through His Word, so what does that tell you?
---Mark_V. on 11/15/07


MarkMike, there's no place for biblical abuse in God's Kingdom.
As you take your daily bath in evolution, I wonder why the need to sponge off Christians to get your fix.
Your agenda is driving you, have you taken a good look who's in the driver seat? You are a passenger.
---Bob on 11/11/07




The question is not whether he was saved or not but was that guy right in the head? Dude he chased alligators. I can tell you one thing for sure when I die he won't be the one I'll be looking for.

"answers in genesis" brings a chuckle to any real scientist. It is fundamentalist religion, nothing more. It has nothing to do with science. Its appeal is to the very uneducated."


"After 5 years of college and ten years of field work there is no much I don't know. I do not life did not come from nothing, this is ontologically impossible. NO ONE has shown me how the Bible conflicts with evolution."
---MikeM on 11/9/07

Brilliant.
---Bob on 11/11/07


MarkMike, you don't care much for personal interaction.
But I believe very few details of the imaginary lives that are presented here.
I don't know if you are an older single man without a family. I can't imagine a young married man in his 30's having endless days to blog and holding down a field position. It doesn't add up, it doesn't compute.

I think if we knew the man really sitting on the other side of the screen, it would be a 'big bang' of a miserable and lonely existence.
---Bob on 11/11/07


Blessings to you judy, I do not know what Steve Irwin believed, so I cannot really say. Only God sees a person's heart. I pray that he was saved. Another reason that you should not hesitate to recieve Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, because you never know when your time to die is near. God Bless!
---Cynthia on 11/9/07


MikeM - "Answers in Genesis" offers a variety of products. I agree that SOME of them are taught by looking at the Bible FIRST and trying to pull "science" from it. That's why I don't recommend Ken Ham's DVD's. But many of the others look at scientific findings FIRST and THEN compare them to what the Bible says and what the evolutionists say. They offer products from BOTH perspectives.
---Greyrider on 11/9/07

---MikeM on 11/9/07


zach, you might want to check out Answers in Genesis. They have some great material. Ironically, their founder, Ken Ham, is the only one I really wouldn't recommend. But scientists like David Menton, Steven Austin & Jason Lisle have some interesting DVDs. They look at scientific findings and then compare them with the Bible, which to me, is more credible.
---Greyrider on 11/9/07


Jesus said "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who doeth the will of my Father, who is in heaven." Mt.7:21 satan believes in Jesus, the pit of hell was made for satan and his angels. So that goes to show that just believing does not fulfill the requirements. If you believe you will dig for the truth "and the truth shall make you free" Jn.8:32
---Mark on 11/9/07


Zach, if you wanna find something bout our God read the bible, if you dont have one their are bibles online in any version you want
---mark on 4/6/07


hello? I am currently an evolutionist but am trying to seek out other beliefs, it just doesn't seem like all of this could happen by chance.
---zach on 4/6/07


watching 'dog the bounty hunter' on A&E i noticed how Dog and his team pray before every catch which can be very dangerous. I thought how i wished Steve irwin would have done that instead of trusting in his own abilities...makes me sad.

I always loved Steve's shows and just recently got into this blog. Can someone tell me about the Christianic creation?
---zach on 3/19/07


whoa whoa whoa, he didn't accept budhism as truth, he just said that it was a great religion for conservation purposes because the first law of budhism is not to kill any living creature.
---brian on 1/27/07


The fact that Steve chose Buddhism and evolution as his beliefs clearly points out to a Christian(one who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord) that he went to hell!!!!!
---Mima on 1/25/07


I don't understand why Steve wouldn't have been seeking God alot sooner after experiencing and loving God's creation all his life .I believe those that truely seek the God will find him and the fact that he chose buddism and evolution for his beliefs really surprise me.

Helen's answer to this post is very correct.
---Mima on 1/24/07


Brian - Jesus says in Matthew 10:33 "But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven." So, if Steve did not confess Jesus because he didn't want to offend anyone, as you suggest might have been, then Jesus would have denied him. Strong stuff.
---Helen_5378 on 1/23/07


Only God knows the true condition of Steve Irwin's heart at his death, but, My pastor has a missionary friend in Australia who said that he had led Irwin to the Lord before he died. I had never heard of him before his death, so I don't know anything about him. Just thought I'd pass this on.
---tommy3007 on 1/23/07


hunter- I think that he said that because his show is so wide spread throughout a lot of countries. He didn't want to offend anyone by showing favoritism or belief to any one religion. Those countries have beliefs such as Christianity, Islamic, Hindu, and many MANY others.

i watched confessions of a crocodile hunter last night, thats why i got online to find out any info i could. but, unfortunately there is only evidence to show that steve was not a Christian. in an interview after a rescue of a stranded scuba diver that lost his wife. steve said in reference to the diver, "he's the hero...he held his wife while she passed from this life to the next, whatever that may be." it saddened me to hear him say that. let us pray for his family to discover the truth.

---brian on 12/24/06


Brian's girlfriend ... You will never know whether Steve was saved (until you arrive in heaven and either find him there or not)
Brian's obsession with this matter of the salvation or otherwise of one person who is already dead is unhealthy. He needs to move on and think of the salvation of those who are still alive.
Your firm foundation should be about your own faith, and your own salvation.
---alanUKquent64534 on 12/23/06


"This is a very serious topic and all we want is some foundation so that we can plant our feet on a firm knowledge concerning this matter." ---I wonder what Steve's FAMILY would have to say about folks blogging about him? Makes you think. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 12/23/06


"brians girlfriend" - (Really?). What you need is to have your feet planted firmly on the Rock, Jesus Christ. Get yourselves saved and take care of your salvation. Steve is already in eternity. Terri and the children very much need us to pray for them at this time of year.

well, the only thing i would add is to have Terri and her kids (steve's dad too) in your prayers during christmas. this will be a hard christmas as it's the first one without him there.

---brian on 12/21/06


pam- thanks, when I first heard of his death it was hard for me to watch his shows too. But I just took them a little at a time, and now it's the way it used to be. Steve was someone who would have wanted his conservation to continue even after his passing, he still wants people to watch his shows so that the message will continue to spread.
---brian on 12/13/06


that is awesome brian! i know you have been struggling with this for awhile and now you have the reassurrance you needed.
i guess i'm in need of that too. I can't even watch his shows on TV now. too painful.
---pam on 12/13/06


ok, this isn't die hard evidence, this isn't physical seeable truth. But last night as I prayed that he was a Christian, an unbelievable, incomprehensible sense of comfort and relief came over me. My mind went white, all i saw was pure solid white. Almost like a voice telling me "it's alright don't worry anymore". I know, peace be assured, Steve is in heaven. This is my sign. This is what I was waiting for. To Him be the glory!!!!!
---brian on 12/12/06

Pam, she may not know the answer. No one does. We have no idea what went through his mind for a few seconds before he passed. He may have cried out to Jesus before his mind/body expired.
---Raine on 12/10/06


I wonder why Terri Irwin won't comment on the rumour. even a simple statement as 'yes steve was a christian or no he was not'
they were so open with the buddists ceremony yet tight lipped on this rumour.
i guess i'm some what annoyed.
---pam on 12/10/06


Brian - A love for God's creation will not get anybody into heaven or even closer to God. Scripture says that "they loved the creation rather than the Creator" (Romans 1:25). It is a sin to put anything before God. Jesus Christ in His Sacrificial death on the Cross for sin is the only way to heaven.
---Helen_5378 on 12/5/06


" And now, little children, ABIDE IN HIM; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that EVERY ONE WHO DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS IS BORN OF HIM." (1 John 2:28,29). Steve Irwin was a righteous man with his love for creation and God, form the sound of this verse, he is acceptable as a man "born of Christ", so does this mean that he IS in heaven?

People will move on when they're ready to move on. We also need to move on from OSAS, 7 day Adventist a cult, etc. - doesn't mean that will happen because we want it to.
---Tim on 12/4/06


Steve Irwin is dead and we need to move on from here. What is the most important thing is the salvation of the people who are alive. Do you believe that Jesus died for you on the Cross and that He is the only way to Heaven?
---Helen_5378 on 12/3/06


ok, we need to stop talking about the ways into heaven and discuss more on if Steve is in heaven. I don't know. I have know idea. It won't leave my mind and i have pondered on it for three months now. It's almost all i can think about. All i want is a simple straight foward answer. I know that i would give God ANYTHING besides mine, or someone elses salvation for Steve Irwin to be in heaven right now. I believe that we need to focus back to the originality of why this blog was created.
---brian on 12/3/06


nobody knows if steve was a christian it wasn't told to anyone and if he was his wife would have said something by now. i pray that i am wrong i pray that i have made a mistake but as far as i can tell steve irwin was not a christian he was an atheist im sad to say, this is what i know which means steve is in fact in hell right now and not with the lord god almighty and if im wrong then god be praised but until then this is all we know.

to all those evolution BELIEVERs..Science can never prove the beginning.It is not a repeatable situation(needed to demonstrate scientifically) So we have to go with evidence (and this is to prove God or Not)
Scientific evidence more than demonstrates evidence for a Creator. AnswersinGenesis is a great place to start looking.1 peter 3.15 be ready to give an answer for your belief
---marion on 11/24/06


MikeM - What I said is not fundamentalism to me. It is pure and simple faith. God says it, I believe it! Easy! You see, God is always 100% correct.
---Helen_5378 on 11/23/06


carolyn-yes, God did create the earth in 6 days. But it doesn't say what creatures he created at that moment. All it says is the fish of the sea, birds of the sky, and animals of the land. It doesn't say ANYWHERE that he didn't start out with these spoken of creatures, and that, over time, they evolved into what exhists today
---brian on 11/23/06


Helen- "Trying to work things out to understand them will lead one off into unbelief." That says it all, do you realize what you just said? You basically said do not think (understand) as it will lead you away from faith.(unbelief) Now that is fundamentalism!

---AlanUK_quent5969 on 11/22/06


Hey, great topic. I've been wondering for ever if Steve was a Christian for he has a love and full of spirit, a happy good loving spirit full of compassion a man that would make a wonderful christian. I do think about what Terri said after his death though, that she still feels he is around her, although at a time of grief you want that to be true and you are so used to their presence, she probably believes that too, but the Bible does say death is a sleep

till the resurrection and i know that alot of you religious people wont agree with me.Fine. But he was a great man and has touched many peoples hearts.

AlanUKquent - The Bible does say exactly how God made everything. Read it again!
---Helen_5378 on 11/21/06


god created the world as in gensis in bible 6 days and god rest on 7th day as god very pleased what he created and there is no such things about evoultion period. the holy bible is only truth answer.
---carolyn on 11/21/06


Brian; One disagreement. Natural selection as a process can be verified by all the sciences. To 'believe' is a faith based paradigm.' One does not 'believe in' evolution or then they are not a scientist. I will be shocked if you get a straight answer. (I do note Baptist are rather pro-education.)

i am baptist, and am a Christian, but i believe in evolution also. There are many MANY ways of proving it, and none of them contridict scripture. I agree, God doesn't say how he made the earth.
---Brian on 11/20/06


Even with the verse that states "And every animal reproduces with its own kind" evolution states that this process happened over millions of years. Each species evolved barely and then reproduced with species that had also evolved a little, so technically, they still are reproducing with their own kind, but it is an extremely slow evolutionary process which is why it took millions of years.
---Brian on 11/20/06


I also have MANY other examples and have a mastery of this argument. Helen-if you could give me some other means of contacting you besides this thing (for it is way to slow to have a good argument) then i can discuss this with you farther
---Brian on 11/20/06


Helen; In college not one of the profesors who taught evolution were atheist, not one. Going back in time Mr. Darwin was a very religious man, baptized into the Anglican faith. It was J Huxley, 'Darwins bulldog' that was the consumate atheist, giving it an atheist twist. My study of science points the FACT that life did not begin by itself. It was created here, or brought here.

I see no conflict between science and faith, to be specific, the Bible. "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind"-Albert Eienstin. My only problem is with literalism, which demands one deny objective reality to maintain faith, thus it is a trap, requiring one to call cognative dissonance (denial of reality) Real faith has no fear of science, education, or thought.
---MikeM on 11/20/06


Once again Helen you have not bothered to read my post.
The Bible does not say exactly how God made the world, not does it say how He did not.
And why should evolution be a lie from the pits of hell, as you so graphically put it?
How many people's salvation been destroyed by the idea of evolution? Not many at all, I suggest.
Whereas the denial of evolution by such as you must have convinced many that they had no hope of being a Christian
---AlanUK_quent5969 on 11/20/06


Alan, you interpreted my argument very well. You can believe in some science while believing in religion, but only to the point where it fits into your religious doctrine. so the selective belief in certain scientific discoveries only serves as justification of your religious beliefs. but to believe in the scientific method as a way to explain nature regardless of dogmatic assumptions is to truly believe in science.
---nickanddan on 11/19/06


I hope he made it no one wants to see anyone go to hell and certain people "are just likable". I do not know his final moments, words, thoughts if they were towards God or if a seed had been planted recently or even long ago and in that last moment he called on Jesus in his mind even. I hope so.

Sorry Nicanddan ... When I reponded to your last comment, I thought you were putting a Christian perspective, but of course you reject the Bible.
The fact is of course the Bible says that Jesus was born of a virgin, so I accept that. But the BIble does not say how God made the world, nor does it deny evolution of some sort, so I do not have neither biblical, nor scientific (for science has not "proved" Evolution of any sort) evidence one way or the other
---AlanUK_quent5969 on 11/19/06


AlanUKquent - Evolutionists go directly against God and His Word. The Bible says that God created everything in six days, and that is exactly what He did. Evolution is a lie from the pits of hell designed to draw people away from God and His truth.
---Helen_5378 on 11/19/06


Nickanddan ... What a strange comment you make!!
Do you not accept scientific evidence that the aeroplane you fly on is likely to make it to the other end, that when you switch on the light, the electricity will work?
Sorry, but using your argument, you cannot be a Christian if you accept science at all.
