The Antediluvians, Past and Present
by Wayne Blank
"Noah found grace in the eyes of The Lord"
There certainly were good people in the world through human history up to then (see also When Did Faith Begin?), but they dwindled in number until by the time of Noah there were none left, except Noah and his family.
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented The Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart."
It's not that Noah was sinless or perfect. He wasn't. But he was a righteous man who found grace with God:
"But Noah found grace in the eyes of The Lord" (Genesis 6:8 KJV)
And so through Noah and his family, humanity would begin again - leaving that antediluvian world behind.
"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth."
Fact Finder: After the Flood in the time of Noah, The Lord stated that never again would He cause another worldwide flood of water. But the Holy Bible plainly says that another Flood is coming. What does the Word of God tell us about it?
