Job Conference Q & A

Earlier I made mention of the Desiring God Regional Conference this year.  The audio and video is now available as well as the Q&A session.  Below are some of the questions John Piper addressed during the Q&A session.

  • What language should we use to talk about God’s sovereignty over sin?
  • How much did the Holy Spirit have to do with Job’s ability to suffer well?
  • As an ancient believer, how was Job’s faith different than ours?
  • How could Satan come into God’s presence? Does he still?
  • Did God initiate the meeting with Satan?
  • How should we view Satan’s involvement in our lives?
  • What is involved in the worship that comes in the moments of deepest suffering?
  • Would it be wrong to express anger and frustration in these moments?
  • How do you lovingly speak the truth of God’s sovereignty to sufferers?
  • What does it mean to be righteous?
  • What does it mean for the righteous to suffer when there is none righteous before God?
  • How do we make sure our kids are prepared for suffering when our family has undergone so little?
  • What do you say to a couple who lost their infant and now God seems so far away?
  • How do I help my disabled child understand God’s sovereignty when she faces not just physical suffering, but emotional suffering because of continual ridicule?
  • What do you do for an unbelieving friend whose suffering is pushing her away from God?
  • What do you do when you can’t see God’s good purposes in suffering?
