Genesis 6:9-14,17-18,22 These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. “Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch… “Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. “But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you… Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.

This is a story most people I know are aware of not because they read the Bible but because it is a story that is told to little children just like any other fabled tale. There are cute cartoons that depict this story and this has also been a point of great debate as to whether God actually flooded the entire earth and saved just Noah and his family plus 2 of every creation and we today, regardless of race, are therefore offspring of Noah?

Every passage that we read in the Bible is rife with questions asked by humans of great intelligence and what is God trying to establish by presenting such hard to accept matters? (more…)


Genesis 5:1,21-24,28-29 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created… Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of MethuSelah. Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of MethuSelah, and he had other sons and daughters. So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him… Lamech lived one hundred and eighty-two years, and became the father of a son. Now he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands arising from the ground which the LORD has cursed.”

This is a book of the generations of Adam and it makes for interesting reading not because genealogy interests me but because it lists the lives of men who lived nine hundred years and more importantly, among them, it gives emphasis to two men who found favor in God’s eyes, namely Enoch and Noah.

Why would a God reveal these inconsistencies of life and how does He expect us to trust Him with our lives based on these stories? (more…)
