Then accept your loss graciously. The Bible tells the story of mankind’s relationship with God. It started with Adam and Eve when everything was good. By Noah’s time, the relationship was in trouble, testified to by man himself. When presented with an opportunity to start over, man began messing up once more. Take a look at Alex’s post. It is what he notes as well, except he blame the mess on God instead of considering the part mankind keeps playing.
Biblical authors are attempting to point people in the right direction, towards good.
What do you perceive as working better today? People blaming someone else if something goes wrong in their lives–or, people taking responsibility for what becomes skewed and fixing it rather than looking around for someone to blame?
Today, who are you blaming for what went wrong/is going wrong in your life? (Besides the God you do not believe in, of course.) Based on the willingness and quickness I see in placing blame here in a thread, I am guessing there is someone in real life as well.
