  • Genesis 6-8 is not just a story. It’s a historical account.
  • Romans 15:4
  • I Corinthians 1:11
  • Genesis 6-8
    • About 2500 B.C. The earth was roughly 2500 years old at this point.
    • Genesis 6:1-2 – We have numerous examples in the Bible of men being influenced to evil by women. Proverbs 31 shows that women can also be great influencers for good in the world. Ephesians 5:25.
    • Genesis 6:3 – II Peter 2:25; I Peter 3:20. God waited 120 years. Noah preached to try to get the people to repent.
  • Only adults were on the ark. Would you have gotten on the ark if there were no kids the age of your kids? What about if there were no adults your age?
  • There weren’t many people on the ark. Would you have gotten on the ark if there were only a few people?
  • Romans 6:3-4 – We are buried with Christ through baptism. We are not saved by water like Noah and those on the ark were. I Peter 3:21. If you reason that baptism is salvation by works, you wouldn’t have gotten on the ark!
  • Matthew 7:13-14
  • People that depend on “death bed repentance” would not have gotten on the ark.
  • Matthew 16:18; Acts 20:28
