Contending With God

The LORD said to Job: Job 40:1-1440:1
2 "Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!"
3 Then Job answered the LORD:
4 "I am unworthy — how can I reply to you?I put my hand over my mouth.
5 I spoke once, but I have no answer — twice, but I will say no more."
6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:
7 "Brace yourself like a man;I will question you,and you shall answer me.
8 "Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
9 Do you have an arm like God's,and can your voice thunder like his?
10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 Unleash the fury of your wrath,look at every proud man and bring him low,
12 look at every proud man and humble him,crush the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave.
14 Then I myself will admit to you Job that your own right hand can save you. NIV

Those are words of war, not love.

Love, you seem confused. These are not words of war but of understanding that people are the creation and that the one true God is the One creator. There is but one way to Him and that is through Jesus who is the way the truth and the life.
