...Holy Bible). Nevertheless, Job experiences extreme suffering. All these imply one thing – that God’s will is above man’s innocence. In fact, because of this, Job assumes that God is cruel, where such assumption is evident in the lines “I cry out to you, God, but you do not answer” (Job 30:20), and, “You turn on me ruthlessly; with the might of your hand you attack me” (Job 30:21). Indeed, anyone who does not show compassion to the weak and innocent is viewed as cruel. Nevertheless... ? Why Do Good People Suffer?

...Bible. From the point of both aggression and withdrawal, the section of Genesis in which the Lord expels Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden is applicable. “Because thou hast… eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of they life” (Holy, 1945).

...Holy Bible. New International Version.... Dysfunctional families seem to go back to the very first family on Earth. Dysfunction seems to be the norm. However, not all families are dysfunctional. But, more and more families are dysfunctional than not. Thus, divorces, sadly, are steadily on the rise which causes a child to become broken hearted. And these broken hearted children, eventually, will continue that same cycle of hurt and pain. Furthermore, the Bible has many stories of pain and misery in the family. Genesis, the first book of the bible, has plenty of those stories of dysfunctional families. This paper is going to look at three such stories from Genesis of the Bible, NIV translation and...
