Pastor Brian Flamme joins Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller for the entire episode to continue their discussion on suffering and affliction. How does suffering attack us? Pastor Flamme and Pastor Wolfmueller dig into the seven theses of divine justice from Elihu in the book of Job. They are:
- God is not the cause of evil. Job 34:10
- God deals, not capriciously, but justly with men and all creation. Job 34:11
- If God punished according to justice, all life would end. Job 34:14-15
- God knows all of men’s actions and pleas for mercy. Job 34:21-28
- When God does not answer men’s cries, it is because of men’s pride. Job 35:12
- God deals in mercy with men by his Word. Job 36:10-12
- God’s mercy comes through suffering in that it opens men’s ears to hear his Word. Job 36:15
