The “Regretful” God of Christians!!!


According to Genesis 6:6, the Bible says:

“The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.

The argument using this verse is quite simple. If God is all knowing, then God cannot make mistakes. Only those who make mistakes have regret, therefore the Christian God is not all knowing. Thus, you ask the Christian if God is all knowing, when they answer with a resounding, ‘yes’, then pose to them this verse and the logic mentioned above.


They will try to take you away from this verse by r mentioning you have taken it out of context, if that is the case, show them the following passage:

“Until the day Samuel died, he did not go to see Saul again, though Samuel mourned for him. And the LORD regretted that he had made Saul king over Israel.” – 1 Samuel 15:35.

At this point, the missionary will attempt to divert from the topic, but be authoritative in your speech and indicate that you’ll need them to answer why God has ‘regret’ and why someone should believe in such a God. You won’t get an answer, but the expression while they try to meander their way out of this topic is priceless.
