There are many reasons I feel profoundly grateful to the Lord for establishing His New Christian Church era during the Age of Enlightenment. One of the most important reasons for me is that through the theological revelations of this church there are some enormous biblical problems that are solved in a very sensible and rational way. One of these incredibly helpful Bible problems that has been solved deals with the first eleven chapters of Genesis. The story of Creation in Genesis 1 and the marvelous yet quite nonsensical story of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood that was said to happen over only 40 days and nights, and the Tower of Babel account are all gripping stories to be sure—but, on a literal and historical level they don’t add up. They don’t make sense, do they?
For example, how is it that both Noah’s family and so many pairs of animals and tons of food could fit inside of a boat that was only about 450 ft. long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high? Or, have you asked yourself how was it that it rained for only 40 days and nights in a row and somehow the entire earth and her mountains were covered with water?
