God Changed His Mind About Mankind
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. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis 6:5-6 KJV)
The utter wickedness of mankind grieves the heart of God.
Evil was so great in these ancient biblical times that God changed His mind about His creation.
Starting with Adam, mankind was created with a pure and innocent heart condition. However, after sin reared its ugly head, the condition of man’s heart became incessantly evil. Man’s spiritual condition spiraled worse and worse, coming to a very dark and grave point of incessant wickedness.
God mourned greatly about man’s rampant wickedness.
Have you ever regretted a decision or action in your life because it ushered in adverse results and disastrous circumstances?
God was so grieved with the wickedness of mankind that instead of viewing man as good, He was moved to change His mind about mankind.
