Job 15:10 With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, Much elder than thy father.
Just because the gray headed and aged men say something doesn’t make it right. All things should be checked in light of Scripture. What the church fathers say is interesting and can be important but let’s be careful to see just how Biblical what they say is in light of what the truth is.
Job’s friends think that they are right. They think that since the older men have said the same things that it must be right. There is wisdom in listening to older men but only as they express what God’s Word says.
By the end of this story God is going to correct Job’s friends and let them know that they were not near as right as they think that they are!
