The Rainbow Promise

A Global Flood

This is Ken Ham, author, speaker, and blogger on science and the reliability of the Bible.


Many Christians say Noah’s Flood occurred only in Mesopotamia. But this idea doesn’t come from the Bible, and, as we’ve seen this week, it has a lot of biblical problems. Well, here’s another one—if the Genesis Flood was a local Flood, God is a liar.

You see, after the Flood, God said whenever a rainbow was seen, it was a sign to Noah and his descendants he’d never Flood the earth like that again. But if it was just a local flood, God didn’t keep His promise! There have been 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.” Take him at his Word.
