And it repented Jehovah that he had made man upon the earth, and it grieved him at his heart (Gen. 6:6).
Since Bible does not contradict itself, the holy book gives the feeling that God made a mistake by creating humanity.
The question revolves around why God – who does not make mistakes or commit sin repent creating humanity.
What grieved God?
“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.”
In addition, the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
What grieved God was not humanity, he did not regret creating human beings since God can never make mistakes and what he does is perfect.
He regretted the failings of human beings on Earth, Everything that human being did; it was done with an evil thought.
It is believed that God does change how He deals with human beings from time to time based on human circumstances—typically the sins and failings of human beings. When humans fail, God does feel a deep level of emotion and grieves that humans consistently make decisions that cause them to suffer.
If someone had to argue, he would have instances where humans have failed each other.
Syrian Civil War:
Into its 8th year now, Syrian Civil war has shown how human hunger for power could be a very dangerous game for those who do not want power.
Since the start of the war in 2011, More than 4,50,000 people have been killed, a million injured and more than 12 million displaced.
All this has happened because of power and leads neither the oppressor nor the oppressed into a better future.
Syrian Civil war is an example where humans have failed each other and committed sins by dropping chlorine gas bombs on hospitals treating infants.
This sinful attack on humanity by humans themselves would have made God repent the evil attacks of his beloved creatures.
Can this evil attack on humanity will ever be forgotten? Not only God but also humans around the world might also repent being one of those who want power.
