Arguing With God

Yesterday Jenny preached on the book of Job and shared the following quote. I want to share it with you in written form this morning:

Arguing with God is an act of deep faith—deeper, perhaps, than a passive acceptance of whatever happens as God’s will, or a carefully articulated theological rationalization for why things are. — J. S. Randolph Harris [1]
