Doctrine Test - Noah's ark had 2 pairs of every animal...


Noah's ark had 2 pairs of every animal - Really?

Ever wonder if what you believe is the gospel truth? Scripture states that in the end times about 2/3rds will fall away from the truth. That means they will NOT follow the scripture or the truth that is contained in it. That is why its so important to hold fast to the truth of God and His word. On the upcoming Doctrine Test page we will go over a lot of beliefs that many christians believe as truth but are not found in scripture. Here is an example of just one topic from the Doctrine Test page...

Noah's ark had 2 pairs of every animal

This immediately brings to mind the sunday school song "Noah's Arky, Arky" where it says the animals came into the ark by "twoosies". Now its a good way to teach children and adults with songs but there are some small details that are missed in Genesis 6 and 7. Consider the truth in scripture...

Genesis 7:1-3 "Then the Lord said to Noah, 'Come into the ark, you and all your household, becaused I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. You shall take with you SEVEN each of every CLEAN animal, a male and his female; TWO each of animals that are UNCLEAN, a male and his female; also SEVEN each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth."

We see Noah took 7 each of the clean animals, 2 each of the unclean and 7 each of birds. Now we see the truth it was not 2 pairs that was taken and if we read the entire account we see all the animals came in the ark by pairs ref. Genesis 7:9 (two by two they went into the ark). If we continue to read the flood account we notice in Genesis 8:20-21 when the flood was over...

"Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every CLEAN animal and of every CLEAN bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma."

Now your probably asking "But what does CLEAN and UNCLEAN mean?" Lets continue on and see.

Most believers say the law / instructions of God was first given on Mount Sinai in Exodus 19 & 20. If you study the commandments, laws & statues of God, we see the same words CLEAN and UNCLEAN in these passages. So the question is... "So how did Noah know what animals were clean and unclean?" Its obvious that God's commandments were given by God to Noah BEFORE Mount Sinai. We also see evidence of this prior to the flood. Instead of getting into full detail about this go to #10 "There was no law prior to Mount Sinai" in this quiz....

In closing we see the enemy use slight errors and misdirection to take the focus off the importance of God and His word. Its takes the focus off what is important and makes it void. Stephen
