The mother of all Genocides

Genesis 6:17-23 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. Every living thing that moved on the earth perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

This story is one of the more popular Bible stories for children. If you really think about it, it’s not a very good image to put into the minds of our children.

One response to “The mother of all Genocides

  • God is Love

    Genesis 6
    Contemporary English Version (CEV)
    The Lord Will Send a Flood

    6 1-2 More and more people were born, until finally they spread all over the earth. Some of their daughters were so beautiful that supernatural beings[a] came down and married the ones they wanted. 3 Then the Lord said, “I won’t let my life-giving breath remain in anyone forever.[b] No one will live for more than one hundred twenty years.”[c]

    4 The children of the supernatural beings who had married these women became famous heroes and warriors. They were called Nephilim and lived on the earth at that time and even later.

    (the genes of ppl was so corrupted because all the people had childrens with Nephilim so God had to destroy them and also everyone was evil all the time)

    5 The Lord saw how bad the people on earth were and that everything they thought and planned was evil.

    8 But the Lord was pleased with Noah, 9 and this is the story about him. Noah was the only person who lived right and obeyed God. 10 He had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

    11-12 God knew that everyone was terribly cruel and violent. 13 So he told Noah:

    Cruelty and violence have spread everywhere. Now I’m going to destroy the whole earth and all its people..
