The article, “How to Be a Miserable Counselor”, by Paul Tautges states
“The horrendous one-another ministry of Job’s so-called “counselors” is a bad example for us to recognize and learn from, but definitely not follow.”
An article how the friends of Job proved to be horrible counselors indeed. The old view that suffering and personal sin are connected. Suffering as seen through Christ has merit.
The friends of Job felt Job had sinned to deserve what had occurred him but were wrong. Instead Job was a just man. This was a story of how suffering has merit for others. Job also became a prefigurement of Christ as a just man who suffers.
