God's and Lucifer's wager. Job had all restored, double, even. What about his family and servants? Mere pawns?<quoted text>
At that time all were pagans and did not believe in the ONE True GOD.
A priest can be considered a satanic warlock?
Aarons sons were evil.
The story of Job is a lesson in perseverance and strength with Gods help to get through the trials and tribulations we all have from time to time.
The devil is on earth when GOD tossed him out of Heaven for being disobedient.
1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Job could be you or me, or anyone with a lost loved one, financial ruin, etc. etc. etc. and was restored back to life.
I look at the scriptures with positivity not negativity.
The Bible pulsates with life and is not a dead book.
Pagans should be killed? Have you done your sacred duty today? Many of them around, you know. Incidentally, as far as I know. the Canaanites had not been told of the ONE true God. And had they been told of the ONE true God, how could the babies and children who were also massacred TO THE LAST ONE even know and understand this? No negative in that, I suppose. Oh, and Joshua was trying to impose what was at that time a minor religion on the majority? Not really, as the Hebrews did not accept converts. They alone were the anointed ones, no? Even today, not easy to convert to Judaism. Best to have a Jewish mother somewhere in the gene pool.
Finally, you wrote "Aarons sons were evil." Who says and what were their evil ways?
Why did Moses spare his brother Aaron when he killed those 4,000 gold calf adorators? After all, Aaron had organised the fashioning of the calf, no? Why did Moses spare him? Another trick question for you. The calf adorators, including Aaron, were violating the 1st Commandment. Er, Moses blasphemously broke the two tablets before the 4,000 poor bastards got a look at them, most notably the famous 1st Commandment they were violating, how could they know they could only have one God and , moreover, that this one God was a jealous God, thereby sinning Himself as jealousy, or envy, is one of the seven deadly sins. Then Moses, who KNEW the 10 Commandments as Cecil B De Mille read them to him, killed 4,000 of his own people, thereby violating the commandment "Thou shalt not kill" (number 6). No negativity in the Bible, no sir.
