Is God just?
Is it fair to Job?
Is it fair to Jesus?
God is sovereign
What is “fairness”? We cannot grasp the end to justify the beginning be cause we are constrained by “Time”, God has no such limitation. Our sense of “fairness” not a part of nor required of The Holy Sovereign God who knows all without being bound by Time. We cannot judge His actions by our experience.
Thank you for your sharing. I see it in this way. First, I think it is not fair to Job. Not in the way that God owes us, but we owe God. Sinners deserve hell (Romans 6:23). Anything better than hell is not fair.
In the Old Testament, when God chose to have mercy instead of justice on sinners, there is the question of fairness. God’s answer (to Job and to us) is Jesus (Romans 3:25-26).
