Coffee with Job – 14 – Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

Today we look at the age old question – why do bad things happen to good people?  Looking at Eliphaz’s speech Job 5:8-16.   Where can the poor find hope and injustice be silenced?  You can watch on YouTube (subscribe to get sent it every day if you wish)… or  Vimeo  (for some reason I find the Vimeo video to be of better quality)

Coffee with Job 12 – Bad Spirituality



  1. Good point David with “if I were you” with the premise being correct and of course you are right about the misguided belief of this happening because of sin in Job’s life. Bad things happen to good people!

    So what Job’s friend is doing is what Jesus criticised some of with giving burdens to heavy to carry and not lifting a finger to help.

    I find this clip says it all about a need for empathy instead from Big Daddy Wilson with “Walk a mile in my Shoes”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKo8iIZfogI
