Job 8 pt1 

Consider what elders say. 

Bildad is much like a Singaporean. Cause and effect. Each man comes to job with their own agenda. 

Vv2 Job was praying in the previous chapter. Bildad is blunt. Vv4 devoid of truth and tact. Job loved his children. None of Job’s friend answered his question. Why am I suffering? Vv9 Traditionalist not grounded in God’s word. 

Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

Innocent suffering gives gracious favor before God. God’s ways are not man’s ways. 

Vv14 a foolish arrogance that holds onto a spiders web. Vv18 this plant has spread itself so fast and wide that it cannot sustain itself. 

Don’t induce theology from creation. Yes created nature reveals God but it does not saves sinners. Use biblical illustrations.  

Mat13:5 13:21 and Job8:17. Jesus was alluding to Job. 

Mat 13:34-35
