Evidence for the Flood (1 of 2)
We have looked at the events leading up to the flood - the departure from God and abandoning what is right in exchange for the lust of the world. The result was children that were tyrants, filled with violence, whose thoughts were evil continually. There was no justice because the tyrants were mighty men of renown. Because they had the power base, justice was perverted (Genesis 6:4). Because evil men were the lords of the land, the land quickly became filled with evil and only one man continued to follow the Lord. God condemned man to the same destruction that they had already chosen for their souls. As God watched man race toward complete moral bankruptcy, He executed His judgment.

Godless men will be strong and will pollute justice; the world will race towards moral bankruptcy while the godly abandon God for the lust of the world. In spite of the continual warnings, the world will be blind-sided by God's judgment.

In obedience to the scripture's command, we will first examine the defense of our reasonable faith so that we can 'sanctify our hearts in the Lord' by studying His word.
Defending the biblical accountThe evidence for the flood is so overwhelming that I can't possibly scr ...
