THE KIND OF MAN GOD USES
Dr. Rick E. Ferguson
As we continue our study in the book of
Genesis (the book of beginnings) we come today to
one of the great events of human history: The
story of Noah and the ark, and the great global
flood of God's judgment upon the earth.
NOTE:Some of you businessmen will want to study Noah carefully. He has
been acclaimed as the best financier in the Bible, because be was
able to float his stock while the whole world was in liquidation.
Do any of you fishermen know what instructions Noah gave his sons
about fishin-g off the ark? Go easy on the bait boys, I only have
Now some would contest the historicity of
this great event. The story of the world-wide
deluge and Noah building an ark of sanctuary, in
which God preserved all living species, does not
fit well with the anti-supernatural bias of
modern-day thinking. The modern rationalist and
empiricist looks scornfully to Genesis 6 and calls
the story of Noah and the ark fable, myth or saga.
Again, this is the result of a tremendous anti-
supernatural bias. As I told you in the very
beginning of our study in Genesis, if you can
accept the first four words of the Bible ("In the
beginning God") then you won't have any problem
with the rest of Scripture.
I want you to know that I believe that the
story of Noah and the ark happened just as it is
recorded in the Scriptures. I believe that there
was a world-wide flood and a single man was
greatly used of God to protect and propagate the
human race. I believe that the story of the flood
is a real, historical event.
