Sermon Preached: 9-6-2015 Sun AM
The flood narrative in Gen 6-8 is difficult to understand in light of the self-sacrificing nature of God revealed in Jesus Christ on the cross. How can the God who drowns everybody on earth because of their sin, be the same God who dies for everybody on earth because of their sin? There was a rapid spiritual degeneration after the 1st sin. Once sin entered the human bloodstream, it quickly spread until it dominated humanity. With the passing of only a few generations (Noah being the 10th successive generation from Adam) the entire world has become a cesspool of sin.
