    ...angel e; genesis tells us that eve did in fact have "other sons and daughters"and tells us the same about the following generations...read genesis again

    Eve had Children in The Garden( Genesis 3:20) She was The Mother of All Living. Other Translations Changed it to will become.
  • Angel E.
    Where did all these wives come from? Bible only speaks of Adam, Eve, Abel, and Cain. And later on Seth... Never did say Eve bear a daughter.
  • Tyler (Pt. 6 of 5)(I miscounted)
    6 cont. Sometimes depending on how we question his Word can lead to doubt and I didn’t want Brenda to fall down that path. We also need to concentrate more on what his Word does say. His Word doesn't say anything about Cain’s wife being his sister. Hopefully this will clarify the subject more clearly.
  • Tyler (Pt. 5 of 5)
    6 cont. So, knowing who she was is basically irrelevant because of the wickedness. Besides, which is more important? Knowing the identity of one woman or knowing what wickedness can bring? And the reason why I said, “don’t question God’s Word” is because we are to trust in the LORD for the answers.
