Was Noah actually sinless?

Genesis 6:9
“These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a 🔺righteous🔺 man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.”

And how would I reconcile that with Romans 3:10: “none is 🔺righteous🔺, no, not one”

  1. Naathan Lewis says:

    No claim was ever made that Noah was sinless. He was righteous.

    Genesis 6:9
    “This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.”

  2. Nicholas Garrett says:

    No, he was genetically pure according to translation, same word as used for the red Heffer under the sacrificial system. You know who was blameless? The father of John the Baptist according to Luke. That was a fun study and questions to ponder.

  3. ImranandKaren Ali says:

    In The Old Testament they were declared righteous if they obeyed God and walked by faith to what was revealed to them by God and thus their sins were covered.In the New Testament we are declared righteous and our sins are taken away by the obedience of one man name Christ Jesus.

  4. Michael Wesolek Sr. says:

    There is the righteousness of God and the righteousness of man, Noah was a righteous man.
    IN Romans it refers to Jesus Christ who is the righteousness of God. Unless we come to God for salvation there will be no righteousness

  5. Jam Pineda says:

    He is not sinless. When you look on the word “blameless” in greek text, you will see that it has a different meaning. It means that Noah and his family are the only one left without a trace of Nephilims (giants/angels/son of God).

  6. Colin Macdonald says:

    In romans 4 it is said that abraham was righteous through faith alone. I would think that is what is meant with noah as well.

    Romans 3:10 is directed at jews using law to be righteous. Thus they also were not seeking god as follows. They were seeking righteousness through law.

  7. John Calogrides says:

    Only Jesus was sinless. Many men were deemed righteous by God in the OT because by faith the believed God and thus lived accordingly. Not sinless, but aware and repentant when they did sin

  8. Retchie Candongo says:

    It was by FAITH that Noah declared righteous by God.

    Hebrews 11:7 KJV
    [7] By FAITH Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the 👉RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS BY FAITH.👈

  9. Mark S. Phillips says:

    Answer is in the Scriptures: By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. (Hebrews 11:7)

  10. Jeremiah Waldrop says:

    Rom. 3 is quoting Ps 14 about the fool who has said there is no God. The next verse says that there is none that seek God. It’s reffering to those who deny God, why would you try to apply that to all people of all time? Plenty of people seek God, plenty are not so foolish as to claim there is no God. Just a little study reveals the point.

    Job. 1. 1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil.

  11. Nikki Sheppick says:

    Deemed righteous …. by faith in God’s Way, Word of Truth and Life Eternal, even as all those set aside (sanctified) by God Above …. and who is there to tell Him what to do?

  12. Kathy DeVoss says:

    Not sinless but he was favored by God. ” now Noah found favor in the sight of the Lord “. And he followed God. None of his family was sinless as they were all in the line of Adam

  13. Madison Willoughby says:

    Righteous 6662 in Strong’s is defined as just, lawful.
    blameless, the word is ‘perfected’ in Interlinear Bible, 8549 in Strong’s defined as integrity, truth.

    Noah wasn’t without sin because we know it isn’t possible for people to lead sinless lives, but, contextually, and based off the definitions of the original Hebrew, it appears as if Noah was the ONLY one trying to live righteously with God.

  14. Julie Jones says:

    Sinless and righteous in Gods sight are two very different things
    Righteous in Gods sight is through faith of God
    Believing God is good
    And faithful to bring about what He says

  15. Julie Jones says:

    Wether impossible in our sight believing God is able to create something from nothing
    This person is always the one that God says is perfect and righteous in HIS SIGHT
