Discussion for Genesis 4

    God sayed to Cain thou shall rule over him. Over the sin . Cain not satan rule over the sin Cain had that choice
  • Hector D
    By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh Hebrews 11:4 . For it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul Leviticus 17:11 . Cain s offering of fruit was from the earth which was now cursed and quite unacceptable to God.
  • Hectord
    To Stan Jett. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother s righteous. I John 3:11-12 NKJV God rejected Cain because his works were evil.
