Grieg's friends, same women back from my kayak trip had a wonderful time and I noticed us some excellent conversations going on my job video from a while back and some good discussions and I had some experiences while I was out there on the river, which kind of applies to this whole job thing. And a lot of times Christians evangelicals to come on. You know, say, well job was being tested, and you know, and then other people come on well, you know, how could a loving God do this in that, and I've. Even done that myself by shaking, my fist and saying that God was in just for attacking a just man job was just I still believe that because he did not commit injustice against God.
When God was seemingly unjust to him, which was very pious of them. You know, but, but, but I think that when it comes down to it God's, you know, a lot of people say, well, I was a cheesy speech, God gave job after the entire ordeal. You know, when Joe his angry one spoke out on trial comes down the whirlwind what's. Interesting in an Elijah in the cave God wasn't in the fire. He wasn't in the wind, you know, he was still small voice separate from nature. So this is roaring display was not God himself coming down the job, but a voice out of the whirlwind. You know, this fierce and I think the gist of it.
The gist of the entire scheme was that job, the Satan who the adversary who got paid to hang out in bathrooms and then tattletale and work for God on whether people really loved him or not. So the Satan sees job. And says, he only knows the goodness of the Creator, if he knew the evilness of the Creator, he would not, he would not love the Creator. So here we have the arc type of the good mother.
Good father, evil, mother, evil, father. And in the big speech, where God was saying, where were you, you know, when I created that's saying job, even before you were born. And when you were in the Paradise state of the womb, and you had everything that you wanted both birth and good things and crops. And creation was. Happening and also outside that on the other side of the coin destruction and chaos was happening, because you know, according to the divine he's, the creator and destroyer of worlds, if you can think about that. So I think that the Christian message a lot of times is all one-sided, and it cannot be all one-sided. You know, oh we love God.
God loves us. But you know when something bad happens, they blame it on somebody else, but that's, not the case that's, the good father and the evil father, the good. Mother the evil mother, an androgynous being both male and female performing functions and processes that go hand in hand with creating and destroying sounds kind of cheesy. But look at nature had the experience. It was pouring rain. After a beautiful day under storm I looked behind me. Thunderstorm was barreling up the river, and you can see huge sheets of rain.
So I paddle quickly to the side cover up. The kayak put the cover on it. Throw on my rain gear, hide under bush. Oh, man. It just hammered I had no. Control over that I was doing nothing I was just out minding my own business paddled on a river.
I didn't, stand against nature, but the terrible destruction and the. And then the right after that, the Sun comes out I traveled. Another four or five hours it's, beautiful swallows were we're dipping and dashing across the waves, eating bugs. You know, it's, beautiful stuff. So here I scene, I, seen it go from good to this destructive kind of force back to good and I think that's what we have to see of the.
Divine and rip slo-mo kind of get onto it, but he explains it all wrong. I think creator and destroyer of worlds. So if we can handle the mushy sight of God, lovey, Nova side of God, but we don't also want to attribute the destruction, destructiveness of the divine you're here, today's you're gone tomorrow.
It doesn't matter who you are whether you're just or unjust, righteous are unrighteous righteous. People get hit by buses, just as much as unrighteous and just like in Asia during the tsunami that. Happen, even the Christian churches were wiped out. You know, those kinds of forces here. You have the earth giving giving giving you know, the hippies they're like, oh, you know, we're all like lovey-dovey on mother nature. However, when she comes in and totally decimates a village or destroys millions through disease and famine, you don't hear them talking too much about it. But that's another side of the force that they are there.
And a lot of times covered up it's patched of many reasons. Christians and many other belief systems, try to patch up, God's destructive and terrifying side, which job had the right response, though he slays me, though he slays me still, you know, so, you know, I guess it's all a part of, you know, maybe recognizing that other side that's destructive side. We don't do it enough, you know, I don't think, and we've been told too much that the divine was all lovey-dovey. And we can't even imagine him now that destruction, creator and destroyer of worlds, without even bat. An eye thinking about it, you know, and then this whole Christian idea of lovey-dovey stuff without even batting an eye, the Sun could go out universes.
Collide processes, keep going and just like out of the whirlwind who are we our nothing or nothing, which is pretty amazing. So job I was able to see that other side and I think he did a pretty good job. He wanted answers just like we all do, and seemingly he didn't get a very good one, but he still loved the divine creator after seeing that evil side. So. Now, Joe knows both sides of the coin, knowing both good and evil and knowing the good father and the evil father all in one, especially there's, a great text in Deuteronomy that that explains it, you know, there's none with me and none I give life I take life, and none can save you out of my hand. You know, it's, pretty, pretty huge that's, the gist of if it's, not a quote, but so I think that's what the Satan was trying to underscore with the Divine Being is that hey, he's seen only good show on the evil and. The destructive destructiveness of it, the destroyer of worlds, not only the Creator, and he will curse you to his face.
I didn't happen, which is pretty interesting, just some thoughts, take care of friends. And remember if everybody's thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.
