Noah and the Flood

Preaching Mercy

by Robert Strivens7 May 2013

As we have seen (30th April), the human race was no better after the flood than before it. The flood did not cure us of the sin we inherit from Adam. Before the flood, God’s verdict on mankind was ‘evil’; after the flood it was the same: ‘every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood’ (Gen. 8:21).

God would therefore be justified in destroying us all, at any time, just as he did in Noah’s day.
