1. False. God does change his mind as evidenced by his repentance for creating man in Genesis 6:7-”And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” How does the Calvinist deal with a sovereign God that changes his mind?
2. False. Even though this is popular theology, angels can’t procreate with men, and the evidence given is that it was giants who had intercourse with these daughters of men-”That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown (Gen. 6:2,4)
3. True. Violence was the main reason given why God brought the flood: “And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Gen. 6:13)
4. False. Though every children’s book will say this, it was only two of the unclean animals but 7 each of the clean animals that were brought on the ark: “Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that [are] not clean by two, the male and his female.”
5. True. The rain did not come from clouds. It came from heaven, which by the way, tells us that there is a great ocean of water in heaven: “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened….”The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained” (Gen. 7:11; 8:2).
6. True. God did command Noah to eat all the animals: “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” (Gen. 9:3)
7. False. God commanded Noah not to eat the blood of animals because the blood contained the life of the animal: “But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.” (Gen. 9:4).
8. True. God instituted the death penalty for murder: “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.” (Gen. 9:6).
9. True. God put the rainbow to remind man he would not destroy the earth again by water: “I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth…And I will remember my covenant, which [is] between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” (Gen. 9:13,15).
10. False. God told Noah that he was the only righteous person on earth, even though there were hundreds of millions of people according to some estimates. God did not say Noah and his family were righteous: “And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for THEE have I seen righteous before me in this generation.”
11. True. If you can believe it, Noah and his family were in the ark for over one year. “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened…And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.” (Gen. 7:11; 8:14)
12. False. Forty days and forty nights was how long it rained from heaven: “And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.” (Gen. 7:12)
13. False. Noah cursed for what had been “done unto him”, not what he had seen-”And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.” (Gen. 9:24)
14. False. Noah directly cursed Canaan, Ham’s son, not Ham: “And he said, Cursed [be] Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.” (Gen. 9;25)
15. True. Noah lived 950 years. Adam lived 930 years: “And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died…And all the days that Adam lived were ninehundred and thirty years: and he died. (Gen. 929, Gen. 5:5)
16. False. Nimrod was Noah’s great grandson. Ham was Noah’s son. Canaan was Ham’s son, and Cush was Canaan’s son: “And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan…And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.” (Gen. 10:6,8)
17. True. There were six men whose lives overlapped Adam and Noah: Enos, Canaan, Mahaleel, Methuselah, Lamech, and Jared. You’ll have to look up all the ages to see it. It will take a lot of work. Methuselah was the only one who lived from Adam’s time till the great flood.
18. True. “And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth, And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,…” (Gen. 10:15,16,17)
19. True (probably). When Noah woke up, he realized what his son had “done unto him”-”And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.” (Gen. 9:24)
20. True. Noah got drunk, even though he was called righteous by God himself: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. (Gen. 9:21)
