Yes he would.  He once killed a guys entire family, destroyed his business and covered him with cycts just to prove that Satan was wrong about the guys faith.

That was satan that did that... not god.. But strictly speaking, you could say god did it.. he stood by and let satan do it...  The story makes no sense..God knowing what satan was  still felt he had to put someone through hell to prove a point  lol So lame

It's not lame. Let me explain.

Satan boasted that if Job was punished or put through great suffering, he would be unfaithful and curse God, so God allowed Satan to punish Job to prove that Job *would* remain faithful, to prove Satan wrong.

Satan was testing Job's faith. God allowed it to prove Satan was an idiot. ^ ^

I know the story inside out..  It is lame and  it makes god look the fool for allowing  one of his creations  trick him into  letting satan  torture  Job.just to prove a point..   God already knew what satan was up to, he also would have known the outcome ( being all knowing ) before hand ...Satan would know that god doesnt lie...  None of it makes sense...

God may have known, but you and I didn't.

It was proven and then written in the Bible for people of today to know Satan is a fool. Job remained faithful which proves Jehovah is the true God, as God knew he would remain faithful, and Satan's a wannabe.

And you can't lie about something until it's happened.

So what I'm saying is God didn't lie. He couldn't have because the event hadn't yet taken place - even if He can forsee such things, you cannot lie about an event that hasn't literally happened. Thats just speculating.

So it makes sense.

Peace

No need to get hostile, love. Christian's are about love, not hate.

Nothing in the Bible is just a story. This is a book of history, not fairytales, fairytales that so many non-believer's like to have faith in.

And Satan didn't trick God. You can't trick somebody who knows an outcome to something. It's as simple as this:

Satan gloated to God, that Job, His faithful follower, would lose faith in God if he came under tribulation. God knew otherwise, but God being a just God, gave Satan a chance to prove his point.

Satan then sends, or causes, a catostrophe, killing some of Job's sons and daughters, plus striking him with an affirmity. Job, however, remains faithful to God and Satan is proven a liar. (again)

It's a simple enough piece of history to understand, I think.

Quote

Proven...........how?  Real scientific evidence ?

Back then, they didn't have these great, state-of-the-art scientific labs. That which was history, was documented in scripture. And so it was proven.


Quote

So....people if not had read that story... would only go around thinking  satan was just evil, manipulative and bad..................but not a fool ?   ..They had to find out he was a fool too....to make satan look like the complete package.
It was to expose Satan as a liar, evil, manipulative, foolish and to prove the Devil as the false God, I think.

Satan *assumed* Job would be unfaithful. The true God is all-knowing, and has no need to assume anything. Therefor Satan is not the true God.

Quote

The story makes god look the fool for allowing satan to trick him into torturing Job in the first place..  If anyone follow the bible, they know that god is all knowing and he doesnt fall for -  temptation  from anyone.. let alone satan.

God wasn't tempted, nor is He a fool. I don't think you understand what temptation means, love.

But thats just it. Satan *didn't* prove his point.

Job proved Satan was a liar. God wasn't tricked. He simply allowed Satan to attack Job as to test Job's faith and prove Satan is a liar. God is not a fool.

There was a time when we didn't have forensics. We haven't always been able to prove things via scientific analysis the way we do today.

How the hell do you think people proved things, in the time of the Babylonian's, for example?

Back then, history could proved by being either witnessed or written/recorded in scripture.

And true followers don't tell lie's, however, most people today don't have the truth (Holy Spirit) in them, so they could easily write down a lie and claim it was true.

Quote

He was tempted to prove a point..

God always has the power. Satan boasted to Him, but God, being a just God, allowed Satan to prove a point.

Quote

No I didn't.. I said the story told makes god look foolish to fall for satans tactics... I never called god a fool.. for I do not believe god is a fool.. Get it right lovie lol

I hope so. I don't think the story makes Him look a fool. It wouldn't have made it's way into the Bible if it did, as God wouldn't make a fool out of Himself.

Quote

Lets hope not, lovie. lol



Quote

Satan genuinely believed he could make Job turn from God, but he failed. Job proved Satan is a liar and is the false God.

Job saw it to the end, by faith alone. Christian's believe they will see their loved ones again, at the resurrection, and although it saddened Job to see his family killed, he no doubt believed God would bestow all he lost. And He will, one day soon.

Peace

What did poor Job do to warrant the attacks?   So, an all loving god  thought it was  ok to allow satan to torture and kill...just...to prove a point..  It makes no sense..  If a parent did that on earth, they would be doing a lot of time..

What you are not understanding is  - When god told satan  Job would follow him regardless.. Satan would know god was truthful.. Satan knows god will not lie about that.. Therefore satan would not need to do anything to harm job and his family to try and prove anything..

Bottom line is this..  You  think it makes sense..   I don't..  Nothing will change  and  it is off topic..

To prove Job's faith. Anything Job lost, he'll recieve at the resurrection ie - his family that died. And, again to prove Satan is not who he says he is. Satan is a liar and the "Father of the lie."


Quote

Ofcourse people could lie, but for those who rightfully/fully worship the true God, the truth (Holy Spirit) is in them, therefor they're inclined to tell the truth. If you don't, you forsake/betray God and that destroys the relationship you're building with Him. So, if a worshipper of God knows anything about what he's doing - building a relationship with the Lord, he'll remain vigilant and tell the truth at all times to glorify Jehovah. If he doesn't, he's not serving God properly.

True Christian's, do not tell lie's. Those who live the truth, belong to God. However, those that live the lie, belong to Satan. (you can bet Obama falls into this catagory.)

I don't think you believe in the resurrection, do you? Job will see his family again and will enjoy life everlasting in the next system of things. I view God in the love-light.

do anything to harm job and his family to try and prove anything..
Where is your faith?
