In light of Acts 15, I was curious to see how the ancient people approached the sanctity of worship, of life, and of marriage. Before the Flood, I found two people who seemed to clearly picture the wicked and the righteous - or might I say, the ungodly and the godly?
|Lamech (Genesis 4)||Noah (Genesis 5-9)|
|[no mention of God]|
"God is in none of his thoughts" -Psalm 10:4
|"found grace in the eyes of the LORD"|
"walked with God"
"did according to all that the LORD commanded him"
"built an altar to the LORD...and offered burnt offerings"
"Blessed be the LORD"
|"I have killed a man"||Noah went into the ark with his family and the animals "to keep them alive"|
|"took for himself two wives"||"go out of the ark, you and your wife..."|
