What Would the Sighting of Noah’s Ark Mean?

“And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” Luke 16:31

In our previous program we heard how two creationists had scaled Mount Ararat and had filmed an object projecting from the ice near the summit. That object looked very much like Noah’s Ark. The year was 1989 and other creationists at the time could have reported with great fanfare that Noah’s Ark had indeed been discovered.

Confirmation of the discovery was necessary, and the following year, other creationists, using a helicopter, found that the object was simply a rock formation. Some Christians think that confirmation of Noah’s Ark will cause millions to come to Christ. However, this is unlikely to be the case. We are reminded of the rich man in hell who asked that Lazarus be sent back from the grave to warn his brothers about the judgment. Jesus said, “Even though the dead be raised, still they will not believe!”

There is something else: Confirmation of the Ark, resting too high on the mountain to be explained by a local flood, would instantly make thousands of liberal theology books good for nothing more than heating fuel. Even liberal scholars would be forced to accept what they now consider to be ignorant myths of a pre-scientific age. They would be forced to deal with our message that the Word of God is true in every subject that it mentions!

Dear Father, Your Word is true and can be trusted. Help that fact move me to spend more time with You in Your Word, reading it, studying it, and inwardly digesting it. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
