They sat around Job, who was experiencing one sorrow after another, and said “The reason this is happening to you and not us is because we are living right and you are not.”At the end of the book, God expresses his fury at Job’s “miserable comforters.” The world is too fallen and deeply broken to fall into neat patterns of good people having good lives and bad people having bad lives.The fourth answer to suffering in the face of an all powerful God is that God knows what he’s doing, so be quiet and trust him.This is partly right, but inadequate. It is inadequate because it is cold and because the Bible gives us more with which to face the terrors of life.God did not create a world with death and evil in it.
