If the Flood was Global, the Mormons are Right!

If the Flood was Global, the Mormons are Right! November 25, 2014

I had an interesting thought when a commenter shared how they respond to the claim that the entire globe must have been covered by the flood spoken of in Genesis. He points out that Acts 2:5 says that “there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven” in Jerusalem, which means the known world and not the entire globe.

It struck me that, in order to press that to really mean every nation under the sky, one would have to say that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is correct, that Israelites reached the Americas.

I wonder how many Protestant fundamentalists are willing to follow their “logic” to that logical conclusion.
