God is serious about sin. Long ago, He sent the flood, which wiped out all humans except 8. There is another judgment scheduled for the future. This time it will not be by global flood but global fire. Read 2 Peter 3. There is an Ark this time, too, but we must enter one-by-one. Jesus, the Ark, is also the Door in. Want lasting life? Bow before Him in faith, acknowledging that your sin sent Him to the cross. In short, repent and trust Him! Alternative? Proportional punishments (Lk 12:47-48) with eventual cessation (Mt 10:28).
