A Carrot and Stick World

The book of Job is enormously old. It is also one of the most troubling and disquieting books in the Bible. It has remained a part of the Bible for as long as it has because of its central question: can man worship God without the threat of punishment or the promise of reward? This is, I think, a question that does not get asked all that often in contemporary Christian discussion. It needs to be, for Jesus, recall, was obedient unto death. If we are followers of Jesus, can we say less? Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte for this week's sermon on the first two chapters of Job, "A Carrot and Stick World" by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text.

Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at
