ROOTS 3  GENESIS 6:9-7:24

This is a terrible story because every living thing was wiped out except those in the ark.

The most pressing question is why would a loving God do this?

Genesis 6:5  Every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.

Mankind was without repentance and the only way for mankind to be saved was for God to find one righteous person.

Genesis 6:9 is the first time righteous is used in the Bible

Noah’s righteousness was God’s gift in response to Noah’s personal faith.  (Genesis 15:6, Romans 4:3 & 8, Galatians 3:6, Hebrews 11:7, and James 2:23)

Righteousness described Noah’s standing before God, blameless described his conduct before people (not perfect but having integrity, his neighbors could not find fault with him Philippians 2:12-16)

Noah built an ark but he also built a Godly character and family (2 Samuel 14:14)

Tremendous truth  God desires all to be saved but only those who choose to be saved will be saved.
