The DEEP - Fellowship of Ailbe
The DEEP
He starts out good, but then makes a clueless indictment of Job.
He's way off base and totally sure of himself too – not a great combination.
This make his trials even worse, but sets up the coming lessons.
He takes the bait and starts arguing details with Eliphaz.
There's no point in pretending to be superman.
He prattles on poetically while Job writes in pain.
This is not the time and place for this kind of lecture.
He thinks this must be punishment for some specific sin.
Job raises the questions we all have about tragedies.
They do the key thing real friends would do – show up.
Job's the one with the abnormal reaction.
He's just a bit player anyway.
