Although such an "evangelical spirit" is a description too vague to apply solely to Protestant reformers, Tauler's sermon on the Feast of St. The story of this mysterious layman was told in the Meisterbuch "Book of the Master" and was assumed for centuries to represent an actual person.

As Tobin writes, "This emphasis on an intense personal relationship with God can hardly be considered an innovation of the fourteenth century. Even the great historian Philip Schaff, who was by no means a friend pardon the pun of the Catholic Church, says that they "were not bound together by any formal organization.
Towards the end of the book, Job's friends start to think that Job is not good because a lot of bad things are happening to him. They march side-by-side with David as he rushes toward Goliath. Are you not of more value than they? We see in Job chapter one, that nothing came into the life of Job which did not first go through the hands of his loving God.
Ferdinand Piper's book Lives of the Leaders of the Church Universal identifies him as a "mysterious and indefatigable chief of a Waldensian society" vol I, Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? First, they came to him when he was suffering. God accepts a humble and repentant heart.
In Job 42, Job made a burnt offering for his friends and prayed for them as God commanded Him to do. Satan says that the only reason why he is like that is because God was good to him and gave him sons and daughters and many animals.
Instead of telling a hurting person to admit his wrong and repent when we do not know the reason for the sufferingwe can join together and encourage a friend to endure faithfully, knowing God sees our pain and has a purpose for it.
When Job keeps his faith in God, Satan afflicts him with painful sores all over his body. The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics.
The Bible tells us that we are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers, that we are to stay away from people who cause divisions and offenses, and to withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly.
Madara is implied to have had a close relationship with Reiko, which is implied to be one of the reasons he is content to be Takashi Natsume's companion.
Jones agrees, saying "The attempts of late writers to turn Tauler into a pre-Protestant reformer rest on fiction and not on verifiable facts. He is mighty and powerful.
Conclusion Just as God saw fit to create Eve for Adam in the Garden of Eden when He first created the first man — God still places an extremely high value on personal friendships, and He will make sure to bring the right people and the right number of people in your life so you can each help each other out to go farther and fly higher in the Lord.

In his article "Johannes Tauler: Mystic, Pastor, and Preacher" Michael Berry points out that Tauler "does not preach a message of 'retreat' per se, or an absconding from tribulation, but instead a more truthful entrance into reality -- through suffering with Christ.
Without making any stipulations the master allowed himself to be guided by the layman and learned from him to forget the world and himself, to turn all his thoughts upon God and to lead a life of the Spirit. But as the story progresses, Madara takes a liking to Natsume.
Natsume is only able to do this because he is Reiko's blood relative. They will tend to look down on anyone else who is not operating at the knowledge levels they are operating at. Some people are open to be helped, others are not. He is a powerful ayakashi, who protects Natsume from others and teaches him spells on occasion, in return for Natsume's promise to give him the Book of Friends when he dies, so Madara often complains when Natsume returns other yokai's name, say that at this rate he will be nothing left in the Book when Natsume dies.
