The story of Noah is a Sunday School classic. It comes home with art and animals. Nurseries are decorated with this as the theme. However, to look at this as only a whimsical children's story is to neglect what the story actually tells us occurred. This is a frightening story that should shake us into a sober awareness of the truth that sin brings the judgment, wrath, and death.
The story has been amazing as the loving, creative God makes and establishes a happy home for fellowship and enjoyment. The apex of his creation assumes the roles and responsibilities in a blissful existence. However, Genesis three takes a terrible and unforeseen turn. A new character appears in the story without warning and catches the reader off guard.
