Don’t worry folks, I’m only studying bits of it to verify something I just read.
subtitled “bonking for god”
sub-subtitled “make up your freakin’ mind god!”
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them,
Fair enough, god’s made man and woman and they’ve started to procreate. I’m also guessing sons were born as well, but they are not of much interest at this stage, as we shall soon see.
Gen 6:2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.
So if I read this right, gods sons (angels?) took a fancy to all the good looking daughters of the mere mortal men and took them as wives (whether they liked it or not by the looks of things). Of note in the Good News Bible (GNB) the verse is as follows:
some of the heavenly beings saw that these young women were beautiful, so they took the ones they liked
Nothing about marriage here, just pure bonk fest by the sounds of it. Hey being a son of god has to have some perks.
By the way I thought god only ever had one son? But these passages indicate he’s got lots?
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be an hundred and twenty years.
So we could all have lived for ever but god decided that we couldn’t be immortal like him, so he set a time limit – maximum 120 years.
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men which were of old, the men of renown.
Nephilim – for those that don’t know (I didn’t), are the children of angels and humans (see bonk fest in Gen 6.2 and 6.4). The Nephilim are also called Giants in some versions of the Bible, GNB and King James version (KJV) to name a couple. So the angels bonk the earthly women and they have ‘giant’ babies, ooohh that could be painful.
Gen 6:5 And the LORD 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.
So the story takes a major turn here, we’ve been discussing how the “sons of god” (angels) have been ‘getting it on’ with all the good looking human women. Having ‘giant’ babies who turn out to be “heroes of renown”; and god thinks the humans are being wicked? What the heck were they doing wrong, poor blokes had to suffer for second best after the angels took all the good looking women. Wouldn’t blame them if they were a tad upset and got a bit uppity.
Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
So after going to all the trouble of making man and women, knowing full well that they’d procreate and have fun, he decides he’s made a mistake? He decides that ‘man’ is wicked and he gets upset that there are so many of them; but he thinks his ‘sons’ are nice guys? God doesn’t strike me as much of an ‘all knowing god’ like some people profess him to be. So god regrets making man, and then we get to the flood…
Well here endeth the lesson
