Re: The Flood?
The Bible talks more of how to keep slaves and multiple wives and concubines than it does about abolishing such practices. Look it up.

Re: The Flood?
It says that in the old testiment. Read the New testiment, it talks more about the laws for today. The old testiment was more of a geneology/history lesson. The new testiments explains today's rules.

Re: The Flood?
I can
quote:
Genesis 6
The Corruption of Mankind
1Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them,
2that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.

3Then the LORD said, "(A)My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, (B)because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."

4The (C)Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

5Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that (D)every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6(E)The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was (F)grieved in His heart.

7The LORD said, "(G)I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for (H)I am sorry that I have made them."

8But (I)Noah (J)found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

9These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a (K)righteous man, (L)blameless in his time; Noah (M)walked with God.

10Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11Now the earth was (N)corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was (O)filled with violence.

12God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for (P)all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13Then God said to Noah, "(Q)The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.

14"Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch.

15"This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred [a]cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.

16"You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.

17"Behold, (R)I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish.

18"But I will establish (S)My covenant with you; and (T)you shall enter the ark--you and your sons and your wife, and your sons' wives with you.

19"(U)And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

20"(V)Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.

21"As for you, take for yourself some of all (W)food which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them."

22(X)Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.



"People call me strange does that make me a stranger
My best friend was born in a manger"

You wrote

Yes , i understand that all the children and babies were indeed corrupt.

Gavie your head a shake and explain how children and babies could be corrupt. Please don't tell us how they inherited their parents fate.

Any one who would kill children and babies because their parents have done wrong must be an unjust God indeed.

There is no justification for genocide. IfGod used it then He is corrupt Himself.
