"The lord giveth and the lord taketh away"

Well that explains everything!

Sorry if this one has been already posted.

You'd never heard that before? Consider

It's from the Book of Job.


Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

I'd heard it before, but, I just heard it again today. It was a story about a local church that had a break-in and lots of donated items were stolen. Kind of a crass commentary on a unfortunate event. I didn't know it was from the book of Job. Fits nicely with that fable.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't do the latter at points.

Something we'd both agree on. Doubt is good. (Though the book of James would disagree and say that I should expect no help from God.)

"God works in mysterious ways" is just a place holder phrase for ignorance. Science has them too. "Singularity" and "Dark Matter" are examples.
