September 2018 – What the Flood?

10 Sep


If your neighbor drowned a litter of puppies, what would you do?

How should the police respond to some parents who drowned their children in a bathtub?

But what if God did these things? Does that change your view?

Many Christians struggle with the idea of God drowning millions (maybe billions!) of people and animals in the flood (Genesis 6-8).

Some Christians hardly struggle with it at all.

For the September 2018 Synchroblog, we want you to write about the flood account of Genesis 6-8.

What is your view of the flood? How should it be understood? Did it really happen or is it a myth?

If the flood really happened, did God truly send the floodwaters upon the earth to drown all men, women, children, and animals who were not on the ark? Why?

This is your opportunity to approach issues related to inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. Or you can talk about the character of God. Or the sinfulness of humanity and how God should respond.

In your blog post, present your view of the flood account in Genesis 6-8, while also writing about related issues of Scripture and theology.

Publish your blog post on Tuesday, September 25, and add a link to your blog post in the comment section below. The link list will get published on Wednesday, September 26 so you can add it to your blog post.

    Is God like Thanos from the Avengers Infinity War? Did God really blot out the human race except Noah or was it something or someone else that caused the flood? Gregory Boyd thinks it was something else more sinister. What do you think? Here is my blog post on the flood which is part of this months synchro blog (it will be posted there tomorrow)

      Rom 9:14-22 niv “(14) What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! (15) For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” (16) It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. (17) For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” (18) Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. (19) One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?” (20) But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ ” (21) Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use? (22) What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath–prepared for destruction?”
