- So divine vindication God turned the whole course of history around one man, that's what doctrine can do!
His respect for God, and being enthusiastic by believing God's warnings, moved him to construct a ship or what is called an ark, in which he met with the scorns and reproaches of a wicked generation.
He did not dispute with God as to why He should make an ark, nor how it could be capable of containing what was to be lodged in it, nor how such a vessel could possibly weather out so great a storm.
His doctrine resident in the soul silenced all objections and set him to work earnestly.

One is the simplified for the naive and the other is complicated for the serious student of the Word of God. It all revolves around who are the "sons of God and the daughters of men" as mentioned in Gen 6:2.
Those who do not relate to the original languages in their preparation and study of the word take the idea that the "sons of God" refer to the line of Seth and the "daughters of men" refer to the line of Cain.
They cannot be all of the fallen angels because we know that our battle is with Satan and his fallen angels in Eph 6:12 and they are free to walk the face of the earth.
JUD 1:6 And the angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day.
1PE 3:19 He [TLJC] went and made proclamation to the fallen angels in prison now
The fact that creatures can have sex with other species then themselves is not only taught in JUD 1:6 when it says And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode,
God even commands humans not to do what these angels did which was to have sex with a lower creation and that's why we actually have commands in the Bible that forbid having sex with animals, Lev 20:15-16.
Having sex with another creation is possible and that is why God forbids it because it is possible.
The expression "daughters of men" includes the daughters of Seth as well as the daughters of Cain, hence the expression "sons of God" must mean beings different from the human race.
ROM 8:14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
ROM 8:19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
A "son of God" denotes a being brought into existence by a creative act of God.
Such were the angels and such was Adam, and he is so called in Luke 3:38 Adam is the son of God.
Psa 148:2,5 Praise Him, all His angels; praise Him, all his hosts! Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created.
We are called "sons of God" because we in Christ 2CO 5:17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature;
COL 3:10 Put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him [the new nature].
All men born of Adam and his descendants by natural generation are the "sons of men" and it is only by being "born again" which is a "New Creation" that they can become the "sons of God" in the New Testament sense.
The "Sons of God" of Gen 6:2, 4, could not be the "sons of Seth," as some claim, because the "sons of Seth" were only men, and could only be called "sons of men," not "sons of God."
This proves beyond question that the "sons of God" in Gen 6:2,4, were ANGELS, and not godly descendants of Seth.
Objections are raised concerning this point by noting what our Lord said about the resurrection of humans that they are like the angels in LUK 20:35-36, that they neither marry, nor are given in marriage;
While the passage implies that the angels "do not marry" it does not say that they are "sexless" for that would convey the idea that at the resurrection all believers will also be sexless.
It is the same sin that caused the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, whose citizens demanded that Lot surrender the two angels that he had received into his home that they might "know them" which refers to having sex with them in 2Pe 2:6-8, Jud 7, Gen 19:5.
