That was a tricky one! The story about Noah cursing Canaan is impossible to do justice to in so few characters.

As always, make sure you read the chapter itself and not just my summary! (There's a link under the summary.)

if "GOD" loved us sooo much that why would he kill all of us and make "better" versions of us. Some kind of love huh...


isang summary lang kailangan ko 2 pharagraphs


A visible sign (a rainbow) ..... a reminder of Gods promise.


God destroyed mankind so as not to loose them forever. He had to have a remnant so Jesus could come to redeem us all. This part of the plan becomes evident in
1 Peter 3:18-20New Living Translation (NLT)

18 Christ suffered[a] for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.[b]
19 So he went and preached to the spirits in prison— 20 those who disobeyed God long ago when God waited patiently while Noah was building his boat. Only eight people were saved from drowning in that terrible flood

When I see a rainbow, I know that God is love! Sunday School song-simple, but profound!


Y did Noah curse Canaan?
