A couple of scriptures that really grabbed me were in last Sunday WT lesson paragraph 2 regarding Noah! ---Genesis 6:13-18
Before really reading and then rereading these verses, I always thought that Noah and his family were just lousy preachers since they didn't convert even one worldly person before the flood. Right?
According to those 6 verses, jehober had judged the world of mankind and he told Noah that he had already decided to "destroy from under the heavens all flesh that has the breath of life." (except Noah and his family) BEFORE HE EVEN TOLD NOAH ABOUT BUILDING THE ARK!
So there was really no hope for all them world lings? Their destiny was set before the Ark's blueprint was given to Noah. Noah was a "preacher of righteousness". Must have been considered "righteous" to preach death and destruction to all those folks!
