Job’s about bad stuff! No way! …
There does seem to be a negative attitude toward this book. Possibly that’s because those who are against it have never really read it. And, I suppose, that might be understandable. It’s a difficult book to get your mind around.
Just lately, I’ve read comments that the book puts God in a bad light. Others say that it teaches that God isn’t sovereign, after all. One blogger recently went so far as to say that he believes that the sovereignty of God is the greatest trick that Satan has ever put over on Christians (!) Needless to say, I don’t agree with that statement! Nor, I think, does Scripture.
Now it’s true that Job and his friends didn’t have “the Gospel” as we understand it, but they knew a great deal more about spiritual things than they generally get credit…
