  • Satan's Argument for Job's Faithfulness

    I'm currently listening to a series on Job. We know that when God asked Satan if he had considered His servant Job, Satan of course claimed that the only reason Job was faithful was because he was so tremendously blessed. His argument was that if Job wasn't wealthy and blessed, then things would be different. Notice that Satan's response wasn't that the only reason Job was faithful was because it was ordained or predestined to be so by God.

    Exactly; Satan believed he could cause Job to turn against God.

    Looks like Satan thought he could change the future!
