Why Did God Let Satan Torment Job? Posted on May 5, 2020 by Rebekah Davis The book of Job is a brilliant yet often misunderstood writing in the Bible. After reading, people are often left with the question: Why did God let Satan torment Job? Wasn’t that cruel for God to allow Satan to do that? Some readers will walk away judging God, but some readers will learn the lesson that Job and his friends learned: human judgment is full of error because we never have all the information. At the end of the story, Job and his friends decided to leave judgment to the one Being who has all the information. Will you do the same?
