Genesis 1:31 – And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Genesis 6:6 – And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
An atheist suggests that this is a contradiction, so let’s see if she’s right:
First, these two passages talk about two different things. 1:31 talks about ‘everything’, while 6:6 only refers to ‘man’.
As always, just like Muslims, Atheists love to take things out of their contexts to support their claims; so let’s expose them again as it has become ‘fun’ for me to do so.
What 6:6 means is that God is not satisfied with men’s wickedness, not that He is not satisfied on how He created man (i.e. looks…). Of course, man was created perfectly the way God wanted them to be. But they rebelled against God in committing wickedness on earth; that’s what God isn’t satisfied of – man’s behavior, not his looks. Two different things.
Here is the context of Genesis 6:6, you’ll see immediately that he’s talking about men’s wickedness, rather than the manner of how man was created as 1:31 states:
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 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.
As you see, the context is clear, God isn’t please by ‘man’s wickedness’, not, how he was created [i.e. form, looks…]
How is this contradiction? Only Atheists can tell us.
