Question about Genesis 6:12

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

"And God looked upon the earth and saw that it was corrupt; for all living creatures on the earth had corrupted their ways."                                                                                                                          Some translation mention that all living creatures were corrupted and some that its only about people, what is right?     If animals are included in all creatures, would it mean that God was dissapointed in all of his living creations?

I think it did include the animals for he killed all the animals along with mankind except for a very few pairs

It's exactly what is happening today: genetic manipulation. Everything became impure except Noah and his family (the last line of pure humans). I know it's a hard pill to swallow, but they could do things then we can't do today. You live 900 years, you're going to do more than anyone who lives only 70-80 years.

Luke 17:26-27
26 "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it shall be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27
NASB
 

Many of us believe this is speaking of much more than just eating and drinking until the last minute.

Amen! It is happening just as it happened then. This is how Ecc 1:9 can be truthful. We're just too arrogant to believe we're getting smarter than those at the beginning.

How can animals be blamed if all they do is follow the instincts that they were born with? Were they created with flaws and then punished for the flaws?

No, they were no longer as God made them. Just like today. They are cursed for Adam's actions, just like today.

So we suffered the consequences of a bad design? It makes me question how much responsibility humans or animals actually have and what is poisoned by genetics
