Do disciples of Jesus in Idaho Falls believe in Noah’s ark?

Read Matthew 21:23-24:51.

Consider the words of our King in Matthew 24: 

For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of man be.”

A website called “Rational Responders” puts Noah’s ark at the top of the ten stupidest religious beliefs in America.  In books and youtube videos, Richard Dawkins mocks the 40% of Americans who believe in the literal story.  And just recently in a debate with Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Kentucky, “The Science Guy”, Bill Nye skeptically probes the Genesis account before a huge online audience.

But for disciples of Jesus, we easily believe in Noah’s ark because of what it points to – Christ is our ark who saves us from the wrath to come.  This is our experience.  This is our joyous hope.

Scientific theories are constantly in flux.  But this is not true of the Bible.  Jesus states in Matthew 24:  “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”  Idaho Falls must not interpret us as arrogant.  We make it clear that authority does not rest upon our own opinions.  But we have total confidence in the words of our King.  Hear Him.  Believe what He says to you.
