Our three girls just finished a musical theater day camp during which they performed in a production that depicted the story of Noah’s Ark. The musical features a group of people who mock Noah and family mercilessly until the flood waters come, at which point their deaths are depicted in a rather light-hearted, benign fashion, suitable for a young cast and audience.
At dinner after the second night of camp, our highly inquisitive six year-old, Becca, posed the a question that went something like this: “I understand that these people didn’t do what God said. But if God told us to love our enemies, why did he kill all of those people in the flood?”
Anyone want to field that one for me?
