The Bible is full of errors. Or so say the sneering atheists who would reject the notion that there is a power greater than their own intellect. I’ve heard a number of accusations of inconsistencies, but this one’s new. Apparently, a verse in the first chapter of Judges proves that God is inept at saving His people.
An unflappable person has the patience of Job, as the saying goes. And for many who are familiar with the Old Testament book, Job’s patience seems to be on full display. After all, most remember that Job’s life appears to be the subject of some form of wager between God and Satan. But, by looking at the book that way we might conclude that Job really didn’t deserve all that happened to him. We might, secretly, do exactly what Job did NOT do.
