Why did god want to flood the earth?

Since God was not interested in destroying the earth but recreating the earth this could be why God chose to flood the earth. Had God wanted to destroy the earth completely he would have used fire and not water. Also remember that God had to preserve the life of Noah, his family, as well as the living creatures that were in the ark.

The most obvious answer to the question of why God flooded the world is the one given twice in the first few verses.

The flood functions as a warning to those who would presume upon God’s mercy in continuing their disobedience; the flood calls all to repentance. God sent the flood to judge the world at that time of heinous, continual, worldwide sin.

These verses reveal that God sent the Flood as a divine judgment against man’s sin. Mankind had gotten so bad that his every thought and imagination was always pure evil! God notes that the earth was filled with violence because of man.

While we were reading we ran into the question “Did God actually flood the whole earth?”.

Yes, there was a flood, however it was the long – several thousand years – and slow rise in sea levels at the end of the last ice age, which flooded many of the lower-lying coastal regions and river valleys, the very places early settlers lived and farmed.

Another frequent inquiry is “How could God destroy the Earth by the Great Flood?”.

This promise does not mean that God overlooks sin. One day He will destroy the earth by fire. Peter explains, “the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.

Why did God destroy people through the flood?

For all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people,.

Why did Zeus send a flood to Earth?

The God thought that humans were too greedy and vile so he reasoned that restarting them would help them become better. Everything has a reason even if it seems unreasonable at first.

Why did God favor and save Noah from the flood?

Noah and his family were spared from the Flood as they remained “righteous”, and their genealogy was “perfect”, as they did not intermarry with the Fallen Angels. God then sent the Flood to cleanse the “land” of the abominable marriage with Fallen Angels, to the resulting children who were Giants, and everyone else who participated in the “wickedness” in the “land” .

So, why did Noah survive the flood?

When God decided to destroy the wicked people of that world, he wanted to protect Noah and earth’s animal creation. So God told him to build an ark —a huge rectangular vessel. In it, Noah and his family would be preserved alive, along with numerous animal species, through a coming global flood. Noah obeyed God.

Why did God decide to destroy all life on Earth?

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them.
