It is a good thing to be careful in our judgment of other men. A man may utter apparently blasphemous things against God and we say, ‘How appalling’; but if we look further we find that the man is in pain, he is maddened and hurt by something. The mood he is talking in is a passing one and out of his suffering will come a totally different relationship to things. Remember, that in the end God (speaking of Job’s friends) said that the friends had not spoken the truth about Him, while Job had.
