"Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart"
(Gen 6:5-6, NKJV).

“ ‘Just as it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be in the days of the Son of Man [the state of the world at the time of Christ’sappearing]…’ ” (Luke 17:26)

"The nations raged, but Thy wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, for rewarding Thy servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Thy name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth"
(Rev 11:18, RSV).

"Now as He [Christ] drew near, He saw the city and wept over it"
(Luke 19:41, NKJV).

"How many people blame God for man's atrocities, but wouldn't dream of imprisoning a mother for her son's crime?”
