@Marc Okay, well this question is pertaining to taking the story of Noah and flood literally.

comment Was there enough water in the world to cover the earth?
@hammar that's not the point of the question. the people who "complain" probably don't believe the bible and/or God whatsoever.

@MarcGravell I think that's a great answer, if you could elaborate on the article's point of view.

comment Will all that are lost be saved?
This definitely helps. Only thing I would argue is that we can't tell in this parable if Jesus is referring to "the lost sheep of Israel" or just literal sheep (since He also gives the same parable using plain coins). But if the tax guy was a Jew, and in light of Matt 15:24, that could definitely be what he meant. Thanks :)

Oops, I meant first quote. I thought it was a verse; wish it was lol.

I like this answer, and think it's the most accurate. That first verse says it all :)

@Caleb How did I tack on my own definition of sheep?? I quoted sheep from Nathan's comment. I know that sheep are people of the Shepard

comment Will all that are lost be saved?
@NathanBunney I think we would normally interpret those verses to mean that once we have been born again, we will not lose our salvation. I'm talking about lost "sheep" that have not known God in the first place.

comment Is 1 Thessalonians 4:17 the only verse that supports the rapture?
I don't think these verses are talking about rapture, because given the context (of Noah and Lot) it seems to be referring to the wrath of God being poured out. Also, in most translation it says that day is on the day the Son of Man is revealed, which will not be until He returns.

comment Does Jesus contradict Himself in these verses?
@RobertHaraway For sure. I think these two interpretations are the main views, which Wikis was asking which is correct in his post. I think the more literal way of interpreting would be "that is enough [swords]", and it makes most sense (to me :) as user208769 explains what he might have meant by it. Not saying one is right or wrong though. Thanks!

comment Does Jesus contradict Himself in these verses?
Here it is: Matt 26:31 & Zec 13:7. @user208769 mentions Jesus might have told them to get swords so that the guards wouldn't try taking disciples (being armed and dangerous), so that they would "scatter" instead. I'm sure the guards would've loved to arrest the disciples too, if they could have. Just a hypothesis though.

In the linked post, Nok says to fulfill Isaiah 53:12. I think it might have been so that they wouldn't try messing with the armed disciples and take them too, but instead just take jesus, and his disciples would flee and be separated, which jesus said would happen not long before this took place, and I believe it is prophesied elsewhere too, but idk the verse.
