Why Do Calamities Happen?

Old Testament

A Sermon on Job 1:20-22

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”

In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong. (ESV)

The relevance of the Bible today; why do calamities happen? the problem of sin; the example of Job; man starts and ends with nothing; all gifts are from God. (Preached the week following devastating floods in 1953)
