Sin, Death, and the Mercy of God Genesis 6:1-8 Grace Community Church 2013
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Genesis 6:1-3 1 When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. 3 Then the L ORD said, My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.
Genesis 6:4-5 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.. 5 The L ORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Genesis 6:6-7 6 And the L ORD regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. 7 So the L ORD said, I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.
Ravi Zacharias addresses tough question: On every university campus I visit, somebody stands up and says that God is an evil God to allow all this evil into our world. This person typically says, A plane crashes: Thirty people die, and twenty people live. What kind of a God would arbitrarily choose some to live and some to die?
I continued, but when we play God and determine whether a child within a mothers womb should live, we argue for that as a moral right. So when human beings are given the privilege of playing God, its called a moral right. When God plays God, we call it an immoral act. Can you justify this for me? That was the end of the conversation. -Ravi Zacharias
Genesis 6:7 7 So the L ORD said, I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.
Genesis 6:8 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the L ORD. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Luke 22:41–42 41 And he withdrew from them about a stones throw, and knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.
