Job's sin did not bring on the disease. It was Job's righteousness that brought about the testing. He passed with flying colors. Nothing he could do to make the test go away. It was going to happen. And God took credit for it. He is not going to stop testing us or eliminate the death and sickness that can come with it. However, once the test is over, we can and should be healed, as was Job.
