The Flood happened because the people had become so wicked and had turned so far from Him that there was no hope of them repenting in this life. It's called being "ripe in iniquity". Unfortunately, there are many in every age who reach that sorry state of affairs. But He promised never again to flood the earth, and set the rainbow in the sky as evidence of that covenant. The next, and final, time He will cleanse the earth of unrelieved wickedness will be by fire. There are consequences to wickedness and unholy behavior, whether people choose to see them or not.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way?
