  • Adam
    This seems to be a different topic. We live in a fallen sinful world which is the domain of satan. We could have been puppets but were lovingly given freewill to choose how to conduct ourselves. There is such thing as love, morality, and consequences, but we sin regularly. God Jesus came here to earth and people murdered him. Through this he paid our debt of sin giving us hope of life in heaven.
  • Thomas Hills
    Adam, I do appreciate your kind words and advice but let me tell you a short story. Remember when all of those innocent concert attendees were slaughtered in Las Vegas? Well, I sat and listened to the responses by officials, witnesses and clergy. What I heard over, and over again was, "Our prayer and thoughts are with" and from those who survived, "Thank God I am alive". Out of space Finish later
  • John Boggs
    Ultimately, the Book of Job is not primarily about the suffering of man but about the greater sovereignty of God in the midst of man's suffering.
  • Karen
    Job was a man who had plenty faith. he knew that no matter what his circumstances were God was always with him!
  • Davina
    In this book of Job we also see commitment, character, trust, what you can gain in true worship. Job understood that material possession have no place in his heart his mind set was all Jesus don't matter challenges he faced.
  • Nigel
    Material possessions? Servants were killed, animals were killed and all 10 children were slaughtered! Are you reading the same story?
  • Thomas F Hills
    For Christ sake, all you speak of is material possessions when innocent servants, animals and all ten children were slaughtered by the premeditated acts of God working with Satan. Do we not morn for the loss of lives. Can we not question for what was to be gained other than a man still standing for his faith. Did you know Job didn't know God was behind this plot?
  • Sally
    God stated that Job was perfect and upright,and one that feared God, and eshewed evil.
    Satan said, But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

    Satan is an accuser.
    He is the Father of lies.

    God told the truth about Job.

  • Sally
    King James Bible
    For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.God took away the shame.
  • Sally
    There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. I noticed his kids and wife are not like Job. Job's Character shows he loves God above his family and earthly possessions.
  • Mary
    hi god bless and have a blessed day
  • Evelyn jordan
    Job was a man that lost everything. ,but never gave up on God.
  • Joshua
    he was, a truly man of GOD, who was believes in GOD almight.
  • Anon
    This has always disturbed me. What is the reason to make a man suffer so much, and kill so many? What does God gain from this, besides proving a point to Satan? I understand God gives Job more than what he had back, but I don't think it's worth the suffering. I would rather live in a nice house and be happy than live in a nicer house with PTSD and depression because everyone/thing I loved is gone.
  • Thomas Hills IV
    Bravo, couldn't agree with you more. This is a story of evil doings. One bordering on a sadistic and depraved mind. How can anyone who believes in God believe this?
  • Small and nothing
    James Bible
    And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock

    In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

    This is what a strong house looks like.
  • Sally
    Why did Job choose to marry this woman, he had a lot of integrity.
  • Wm.Shiels
    Job chapter 1 verse 21.

    This is such a wonderful verse which clearly demonstrates the temporal state of this world, but the eternal state of our own souls and indeed the urgent need of our individual requirement to be saved before it is too late. What a wonderful demonstration of Jobs faith in God and even in despair he Blesses The LORD.
  • Thomas Hills
    Wonderful? Do you truly believe that you would be fine with God if he killed your children just to win a wager with the Devil? Oh, that's right, he replaced them later with different children. I guess that makes everything all right. A truly "Loving God" would never play this game with Satan.
  • Adam
    Job didn't sin by blaming God, but you do? God allowed Satan to test Job. While God views all life as precious, He likely has a different perspective than us regarding life on Earth- we view it as the most important thing ever, yet is described as so temporary it's a vapor James 4:14, and Philippians 1:21. If the children went straight to paradise in heaven do you feel that is "unloving"?
  • Thomas F Hills
    Yes, very unloving. We can only deal with reality and reality says that family is everything to us simple minded mortals. This test was depraved and heinous, so much so, I repeat God could never do this. Although the God from the old testament is really a Bastard. My God is good, kind, loving and considerate of our human ways and feelings. This story is a hoax. "Believe not for they lie."
  • Adam
    Disagree. Satan is evil, God is good and loves you and everyone. If your family member gets sick, do you blame God? Tornado hurts your child, blame God? Cancer, blame God? The story of Job was a special circumstance in the old testament before Jesus died for our sins and gave us grace. Today Satan has power to wreak havok on your life, but not to kill you. Jesus paid your debt- is that not love?
  • Sally
    James Bible
    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

  • Sally
    God knows everyone's heart, but the devil knows people in general.
  • Sally
    Job is wise. Wisdom is security.
  • BSP
    Verse 6~We see here that after Satan rebelled he was so arrogant that he still had the audacity to enter a meeting in heaven between Jehovah God and his faithful angels.
  • Abigail
    due to the bible being translated into several languages, and the use of different vowels or lack of, we have a disconnect from the native language of the bible, it was all translated from the Hebrew language, in Hebrew there are no J, so how could the Creator's name begin with the letter, J. The purest form is Y, like YHWH! we use Yah as a way of saying it, even little babies from birth cry Yah
  • BSP
    Verse 8~Even though Job had great wealth, he did not let his prosperity go to his head. He had a fear of Jehovah God and he was a righteous man.
  • Rob Lee
    Thea, Yes, it did say Asia, however, it's not the Asia that we know today. Asia in the days of ancient scripture was from Turkey (Asia minor) to the top of Mesopotamia and what we call the Baltic region today. It was not Modern Asia, so you will know the truth.
  • Lavonne mccrary
    Gabrielle S. Simmons Job had a total of 20 children. Job 1:2 Born until him were seven sons
    and three daughters. These 10 were killed Job 1:18,19. So the LORD blessed the latter end
    of Job more than his beginning. The LORD doubled his sheep, camels, oxen and asses.
    Job 42:12. He (Job) also had seven sons and three daughters. Job 42:13
