OT has nothing to do with the Grace of God. what you are trying to do is divert just as Irenaeus did with his prose concerning naaman.<quoted text>
Preston....maybe this will help....
Peter speaks of how,the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely ~~~through the water.~~~
Didn't Noah and his family have a "new beginning" when they stepped out of the ark?
The past wickedness and sins had been washed away by the flood waters.
When are we released and free from the bondage of our sins???
Noah was not saved by the water, he was Saved from it. all but his family died because of the water. you have this episode all backwards. and you are mistaken by saying that Noah was changed (Noah was the first tiller of the soil. He planted a vineyard; and he drank of the wine, and became drunk, and lay uncovered in his tent)after the flood. try and study for yourself and forget about those false teachers in the campbellite cult.
the challenge is still there after 6 years. give me the name of ONE person who was filled with the Holy Ghost who was baptized
