FOR YEARS THE CONTROVERSY HAS RAGED ABOUT WHETHER NOAH’S FLOOD WAS UNIVERSAL, OR WAS IT CONFINED TO A CERTAIN GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION. This is a study to present our view about the flood as related in the Scriptures. We will use the Bible, and see if it has anything to say about it’s scope.
The common claim, among most denominations, who still preach the Bible; and who more or less try to stay with the Scriptures as they read it and study it. Is that there was a world wide drowning of men, about 4300 to 4500 years ago.
That there was a flood called Noah’s flood that drowned all the men upon the earth at that time in the world’s history, except for his wife, his sons and their families. This is the common teaching among most Protestant Denominations, the Catholic Church. Some Fundamentalists groups and some Pentecostal groups do not teach this. Then there are many people outside of the church who don’t know one way or the other, and could really care less.
Some of them think this is nonsense, they think the Bible story is a myth. Some say that is not important anyway. Then there is the great, vast bulk of the population, know so little about the Bible, they don’t know if there might have been a flood or not.
Those who do study the Bible, and are willing to go through the Scriptures and see what the Bible actually teaches about where was the flood in Noah’s time. First of all let us look at the Book of Genesis.
It is amazing how people can read a verse of scripture, and think to themselves: Yes that’s right. Then they put their brain in neutral and simply become brain dead. They will study no further; they have found the truth; and God help the person who disagrees with them.
