    Romans 3:23 is referring to the first sin committed in the garden of Eden, the original sin. Because of that sin, we inherited sin and the result of that sin is death to all.

    Noah was a sinner because of that inherited sin from Adam and Eve.  

    But he did his best to live his life without sinning, that's why he could be called a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time.

    The fact that Noah eventually died proved that he was still sinner under the first sin mentioned at Romans.

    Both are correctly fictional verses.

    In other related Qs about Noah, those who disbelieve the Bible express belief that Noah got drunk after surviving the flood. It's obvious from Genesis 9 that Noah was a flawed man despite being blameless among the utterly evil, godless people of his time. But after they were destroyed by God, there only was Noah, his 3 sons and their families, and Noah got drunk. He slipped up in his walk with God. Do forgive him because if he had been as unrighteous as all the other people before the flood, you wouldn't be here.

    Don't worry.

    You'll get some lame excuses for the contradiction.

    You gotta remember, the bible doesn't mean what it says, you need a preacher to 'interpret' it for you.  And no 2 preachers interpret it the same.

    For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” -- Romans 4:3

    Both.  Big difference between compared to OTHERS and the standard of God's righteousness. 

    God's word is incorruptible but must be understood. 

    I wouldn't follow evil or illogic.

  • blameless among the people of the time, does not mean sinless...it means he kept to God's way and made sacrifices when He sinned

    where as all other fell away to godless heathenism

    They are both correct.

    • Of course they can. Being righteous doesn’t mean you are sinless. Noah found favor with God.

    Noah, like most prophets, is the exception to the rules.

    It's why people still followed abraham after he went full schizo and almost knifed his child. It's why people followed Moses, even after he made them give up their cow god because a burning bush said so.

    There's plenty of examples of 'gods chosen' being given special circumstances within which to...prove their loyalty? I guess? Most just outright fail him, leading to some ridiculous punishment.

    I guess being omnipotent and omnipresent isn't enough to find competent humans to be your mouthpiece.

    Or maybe, those really were just the most competent humans of the age. That's a depressing thought. People in bible stories are idiots.

    Both of them. The fact that he was a good leader to his people and they therefore considered him righteous doesn't mean that he never sinned.
