It is often forgotten that, while Moses wrote the first 5 books of the Bible, prior to that, there was a rich oral history of the beginning of the nation of Israel. What one learns, as we study these scriptures, is that the people near Noah’s time–still had the ability to talk to Adam and Seth, the 1st two generations. The discussions about original sin, the garden, and the life of men were bantered throughout time. It was that generational training and continued worship of God that set this lineage apart from the rest of the men in the world. In God’s planning, there was a covering of truth and involvement in the lives of these men that made the reality of creation and life stand the teat of time.
In current culture, there are so many influences that can draw men away from God. It is the personal influence of Godly Christian men and women that sets the Christian culture apart from the rest of the culture. If we do not share our knowledge of God and his influence on our lives, our kids and friends will become just like the men that have no selfless influence. We can never be afraid to offend others by speaking the truth in love–It is so important to continue the tradition of God so that the lineage of God will continue for the next generation and many to come. Our prayer, as his children, should be that we will be and raise Godly men and women that will raise Godly men and women.
