R U reading Hosea also?

Notice the difference between the mindset that complains about "the problem" of suffering over against the mindset demonstrated in the prophetic scriptures. the truth of who god is, and who we are, will never come into proper focus as long men so shallowly concieve of fidelity or faith to God as that which may need to be jettisoned when faced with real adversity. On the other hand the reader of the prophets must regularly hear the mind of a people, and of persons, who gladly acknowledge that even though God is in charge when big suffering comes their way, they again gladly profess the goodness of God and that God remains the worthy object of all their loyalty.
