The Rainbow Promise

Was the Flood Global?

Because of compromise with millions of years, many Christians say that Noah’s Flood was just a localized event in Mesopotamia. But as we have seen this week, this view has a lot of biblical problems.

One big problem is that it makes God out to be a liar.

You see, after the Flood, God put a rainbow in the sky and made a promise to Noah and his descendants that He would never Flood the earth again. But if it was just a local flood, God didn’t keep His promise. We have seen thousands of devastating local floods since Noah’s day.

When we don’t trust God’s Word, we make Him out to be a liar. But the Bible says, “Let God be true, and every man a liar.” So take Him at His Word, from the Bible’s very first verse.
