Iumi savve Noah hem talem olketa why hem duim datwan from Bible sei Noah hem “preach abaotem samting wea raeteous.”  (2 Pet. 2:5) Noah sei God bae distroem pipol wea duim nogud samting.

Jehovah sei: “Mi disaed for finisim evri samting wea laef, bikos pipol long earth raf tumas” and “bae mi mekem wanfala flood for finisim evri samting wea laef long earth.

Man wea no obeyim Son bae no kasem laef, bat God bae kros long hem.” (John 3:36) For showimaot faith long Son hem minim iumi mas obeyim Jesus. Staka taem John hem sei for iumi kasem laef olowe iumi mas showimaot faith long Jesus and Dadi bilong hem.—John 3:16; 6:29, 40; 11:25, 26; 14:1, 12.

HEM BARAVA IMPORTANT FOR GAREM FAITH LONG GOD

13 Bible hem sei: “Man wea no garem faith no savve mekem God hapi, bikos man wea worshipim God mas biliv hem stap and biliv hem bae givim gud samting long olketa wea barava lukaotem hem.” (Heb. 11:6) Wanfala “main teaching” long Bible nao hem for olketa tru Christian mas “garem faith long God.” (Heb. 6:1) Bat iumi mas garem tu olketa narafala wei mekem iumi savve gohed fren gud witim Jehovah.—Readim 2 Peter 1:5-7; Jude 20, 21.

 14 Olketa man wea raetem Bible storyim faith staka taem winim eni narafala wei wea iumi mas garem. So waswe, faith nao hem important long olketa narafala wei hia?

15 Paul comparem faith witim love. Hem sei: “Faith bilong mi hem mekem mi fit for talem maunten for muv go long nara ples. Bat sapos mi no garem love, samting wea mi duim hem iusles nomoa.” (1 Cor. 13:2) Jesus hem sei law wea “important winim olketa nara law insaed datfala Law wea God givim long Moses,” hem nao for lovem God. (Matt. 22:35-40) Sapos iumi garem love, datwan bae helpem iumi for garem olketa gudfala wei wea bae mekem God hapi. Olsem example, Bible sei man wea garem love hem ‘gohed for bilivim’ evri samting wea God talem long Bible.—1 Cor. 13:4, 7.

16, 17. Wanem nao Bible talem abaotem faith and love? Which wan nao hem nambawan, and why nao olsem?

16 From faith and love barava important, taem olketa man wea raetem Bible story abaotem faith, staka taem olketa savve story abaotem love tu. Paul encouragem olketa Christian for “werem datfala samting for kavarem chest, wea hem nao faith and love.” (1 Thess. 5:8) Peter story olsem abaotem Jesus: “Nomata iufala no lukim hem enitaem, iufala lovem hem. Nomata iufala no lukim hem distaem tu, iufala showimaot faith long hem.” (1 Pet. 1:8) James sei long olketa anointed Christian: “God chusim olketa wea poor long disfala world for rich long faith and for kasem datfala Kingdom wea hem promis for givim long olketa wea lovem hem.” (Jas. 2:5) John sei law bilong God talem for “iumi mas garem faith long nem bilong Son bilong hem, Jesus Christ, and iumi mas lovem iumi evriwan.”—1 John 3:23.

17 Paul sei tu: “Faith, hope, and love bae no savve finis. Bat long thrifala samting hia, love nao hem nambawan.” (1 Cor. 13:13) Long future, bae iumi no need for garem faith long olketa promis bilong God abaotem niu world bikos olketa promis hia bae kamap tru nao. Bae iumi garem nambawan laef wea Bible story abaotem. Bat bae iumi evritaem lovem God and lovem olketa narawan. Love wea iumi garem for God and for olketa narawan bae hem barava strong go moa.
