Why did God say in Genesis that He was 'sorry he had made' man, and that it grieved him?


Genesis 6:7

ESV - 7 So the Lord said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.

In my opinion, God expressed His disappointment in mankind. His desire for mankind was and is to enjoy fellowship with us. We, then and even now, stiff arm God. There is judgment on the doorstep, again, though not by water, but fire!

My question is: "Why do we turn away from our Creator?" He has blessed us with all we could ever want, on the most beautiful planet in this universe! Instead of following His directions in peace and with care, we hurt, maim and kill, even our own kind.

We seek change, but not our own, only to benefit what is in our own agenda. The only way for the change we need in order to be fruitful men and women of God is to ask His only begotten Son into our lives. We all need Jesus, God's salvation for mankind! Luvya!
