The Church View:
The first eight verses of the sixth chapter of Genesis describe an incredible
series of events that, when taken in their entirety, leave a gaping hole in the churchís view
of mankindís past. Unmentioned from the pulpit is mankindís former close relationship with the Elohiym and the devastation of a terrible action by the angels. The
circumstance that caused Yhovah such regret is a master key to understanding many of the enigmas of the
Bible, human history, and much of what is known in our world as the paranormal.
Why did Yhovah decide to destroy all life?
The Genesis account of the beginning of worldwide devastation:
Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
The doctrinal line that explains the devastating decision Yhovah makes is that mankind simply achieved a level of consistent evil that caused its demise. Found in eight verses is a group of concepts that, considered individually, or as a whole, present a plethora of doubts about accepted doctrinal accuracy and completeness.
Mankind begins to be fruitful and multiply.
Angels are shown to be in very close contact with men.
Yhovah is shown to be in close contact with men.
Angels begin to freely mate with women.
Women give birth to a race of giants.
Yhovah decides to cease his close contact with men.
Evil becomes the central focus of mankind.
Yhovah regrets the creation of all life on Earth.
Yhovah decides to bring an end to human civilization.
Yhovah decides to eliminate all life on the planet.
Fortunately for mankind, only one man on the planet finds favor with Yhovah.
It doesn't get any closer to the edge than that. Without Noah, life as we know it, would never have occurred. Perhaps this is why there are hundreds of accounts of the flood worldwide, with hundreds of Noah figures to match. And why, in the face of overwhelming geological evidence that a flood did indeed occur, does science cling so tightly to shaky theoretical alternatives?
Breaking down the individual concepts and considering them in their relation to the whole will give a clearer perspective of the final impact on humanity.
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them.
is as it should be. Prior to the end of the this age Man is told to be fruitful
and multiply in the first chapter of Genesis:
Since this is apparently what mankind is commanded to do, then of course it, of itself, is not the cause of the evil which has caused Yhovahís regret. There is no way to know the population figures but hundreds of cultures worldwide record the event. It certainly took all these cultures by surprise and most evidence of those cultures vanished in a watery quagmire. Considering the wealth of evidence that remains, there must have been an incredible explosion in human culture and diversity .
