In Hebrew tradition the survival of Adam's seed depends on the uprightness of Noah, Methuselah's grandson. Whereas the Mesopotamian gods had wearied of the service rendered by their human servants, not least the din they made, Yahweh sent the deluge because of the curse brought upon earth by the sin of Adam. The life and conduct of Noah was a standing rebuke to his contemporaries, then incited to wickness by fallen angels. But the treatment of Noah in the Old Testament obscures his cultural role as a founder of agricultural technique. He introduced the vine. Apocryphal literature relates that his drunkenness was the result of a wine-making partnership with Satan, who poured on the roots of the vine the blood of a slaughtered lamb, lion, pig, and monkey. In this manner he conveyed to Noah what the qualities of wine are: before man tastes it, he is as innocent as a lamb; after imbibing moderately, he feels as strong as a lion; after swallowing too much, he resembles a pig; and drinking to the point of intoxication, he behaves like a monkey, talks gibberish, cavorts, and is obscene.

In the New Testament, the fatherly love of God for humans and their reciprocal love for God. The term extends to the love of one's fellow humans. The Church Fathers used the Greek term to designate both a rite using bread and wine and a meal of fellowship that included the poor. The historical relationship between this meal, the Lord's Supper, and the Eucharist, the meal of fellowship and the sacrament, is uncertain.Logical Scenario
Once there lived a perfect all knowing pagan God who proclaims he has created the Earth and all of its creations to include mankind.
Yet, this pagan God hadn't foreseen that mankind would become corruptible so he had repented that he had made man.
This pagan God has calmly premeditated to rain down a flood to destroy all life form on Earth without mercy to include mankind.
He has elected to spare mercy for one man and his family whom he has instructed to erect an ark of specific cubic dimensions.
This pagan God has instructed the man he has shown mercy to gather aboard the ark two of each creation which this pagan God has made a covenant not to destroy the Earth again by flood.
For some strange purpose this male God has made it clear that in this new world after the flood that when one man's blood is shed then by man shall his blood be shed.
Moral of my story is: The entire Jewish faith has sworn that Yahweh has instructed Noah to erect an ark to save the world, yet the world is as corruptible now after the flood as it has been before the flood.

Repentance is a feeling of sorrow relegated to mankind.
God doesn't make errors to tell lies. Rather, he is precise with all of his decisions and faithful to keep all of his promises.
Mercy is synonymous with leniency, clemency or charity.
Merciful means that a person is full of mercy in his or her heart.
Merciless means that a person is without any mercy in his or her heart.
God would have to be a merciless being to destroy the entire Earth and all of his creations due to man's sin.
We have come to know by virtue of Jesus Christ that Yahweh's grace is magnanimous.
Our heavenly Father has promised to extend us clemency if we were to abide in agape love to forgive the sins of those who have trespassed against us.
Amen!Ge50:17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
Num23:19 God [is] not a man; that he should lie neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
