When Rebuke and Resistance Collide, single message
This message is part 8 of the series Job: A Man of Heroic Endurance.
Job’s third friend, Zophar, now spoke. His tone and his words were saturated with abrasive legalism. First he misquoted Job; then he told him he was guilty. Zophar delivered a lecture in Theology 101—as if Job needed another lecture. Zophar made an error in judgment that commonly occurs among legalists: Zophar believed that he needed to expose some sin that Job was keeping secret. But Job held his own and refused to take it on the chin. After demonstrating some of his own knowledge of the greatness of God and refusing to doubt his own integrity, Job, once again, opened his heart before God and declared his own pain.
