When it comes to the flood, our children most often are presented with a story that is hard to believe. They are told that the world was a place where people were being mean to each other, people were stealing, and people with crafty eyes were looking for trouble. Because of this, decided to destroy the entire planet. It is estimated that there were between six to seventeen billion people on the earth in those days and yet only eight people escaped with their lives. How can it be that a loving God would destroy so many people for merely “being mean to each other”? Even the reason for the flood is not explained and then the ark itself is portrayed as a cute little boat with giraffes sticking their heads out and the elephants hanging their trunks over the side. Is it possible that such a lopsided teaching produces children who grow up to be skeptics? Only when the first four verses of Genesis six are taught properly does the true picture come into view – a picture that explains why such a horrific event could happen on planet earth.
