    He said, she said.

    Lets call the whole thing off…

    I wonder if this ephemeral “he” character that everyone seems to be talking about is really so he-ish. This character seems to be bipolar, schizophrenic and sociopathic with psychotic tendencies.

    Seems to me that makes it more of a female character.

    Job got a pretty raw deal as a result of a petty wager between God and the adversary. It certainly makes one wonder what you could possible find worthy of loving and worshiping in such a being.

    What say you Pud? You seem to be in the fold.

    Puddy is furiously flipping through his Bible trying to find Job so he can see what we’re talking about.

    Give you a hint Pud: it’s in the Old Testament.

    Puddfucker: “Gas will be near $5 this summer.”

    Really? Define “near”. Define “gas”. Define “summer”. Get your money out, and let’s have a real wager. Otherwise, you are just a posturing imbecile, worthy only of contempt.

    The verse Job 3:2 is one of the fill in the blank Bible verses. They are quite popular.

    There is nothing wrong with being at a loss for words. Job surely shouldn’t be blamed for that. The poor bloke had some shit flung at him.

    “He said” is a shorter verse than “Jesus wept.” Why has this been kept secret from us?

    Nope you dopes. Puddy and Mrs Puddy out and about!

    God allowed Satan to attack Job. God allows Satan, your leader, to attack His people to prove who Satan really is; a HA libtardo!

    In the end Job vindicated God and he received double the possessions he originally had and 10 children. His 3 daughters were the fairest in all the land!

    Read Chaper 1 and Chapter 2 and consider this: God destroyed Job’s well being because of a bet he made with the devil; God as Democrat, Satan as Republican. God wants to play with the devil so much, that he screws Job. We are all Job.

    Job is actually one of my favorite books of the Bible. Written long before the books of Moses, it shows the relationship between Man and God, and asks the eternal question: “Why do bad things happen to good people”.

    The first few chapters deal describe God’s conversations with Satan, and Job’s hardships; the final chapter show Job’s redemption.

    But I’ve got a major problem with how many churches deal with Job. I wonder how many Pastors have actually read the entire book? They deal with the first two chapters, then skip over the rest of the book to Job’s redemption in the final chapter.

    What they skip over is (a) Job’s “friends”, who try to find some fault in Job to explain his misfortune; and (b) Job’s anger and challenges to God, asking why he has been so afflicted while the Godless prosper; and (c) Job’s cry to God for an “intercesssor” who can plead Job’s case before God (an early reference to the future role of Jesus).

    Now the problem faced by quite a few “prosperty” preachers is that their theology is based upon the Calvinist notion that those who prosper are those who find favor with God, and those who are either sinners or lack the requisite faith in God to prosper. But this goes entirely against Job 2:3, where God says “There is no one on earth like him (Job); he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”

    I’ve heard lots of attempts to blame Job for his own problems. For example, one claimed that he sinned by making sacrifices for his sons and daughters, just in case they forgot to do it themselves. Another claimed that he lacked sufficient faith in God’s protection, which left him vulnerable to the attacks of Satan. But these teachings are entirely contrary to Job 3:2, as well as those portions found later in the book where God chastizes Job by pointing out that it is not for him to question God’s reasoning or meaning in his actions.

    So you still have preachers, mostly evangelical protestants, who support the rather Republican idea that if something bad happens to you, it is your own fault and don’t expect anyone to enable you by providing you with assistance. The contrary view, more often expressed in the Catholic church and others who’s theology contains a strong charity componant, is that bad things could happen to anyone and it’s our duty, as described by Christ in the New Testiment, to make sure the poor are fed and clothed, etc.

    Wrong again. God blesses. DUMMOCRAPTS want to tax those blessings.

    DUMMOCRAPTS are the ones who were Job’s three friends who accused God wrongly and Job had to make sacrifices for their sinful errors. DUMMOCRAPTS are the devil, plain and simple.
