  • Comfused on Genesis 4

    And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. Cain brought offering first and he gets no credit? Abel comes dragging a very innocent animal which he killed and gets credit? Abel first person to kill anything.
  • Abel - in Reply on Genesis 4
    I interpret this passage as meaning that Cain had brought a subpar offering to God, and that Abel had brought a good offering -- the nature of the offering (fruit vs. meat) was not necessarily important. Maybe Cain brought spoiled or weak fruits, implying that Cain was lazy and uncaring, while Abel brought well-fed animals for slaughter, implying that Abel was hardworking.

    Because cain offered the works of his hands symbolizing works of the flesh. but abel offered a better sacrifice the first fruits of his flock without spot or blemish symbolizing of the spirit. woe to you pharasees for you clean the outside of the cup when the inside is full of filth and greed.. meaning they show by works of the flesh hands thinking by there effort there saved.. but not by works by faith you are saved.. cain and abel are symbolic of today your either children of flesh or of spirit

    Whoa..! That's pretty heavy! .. his offering didn't meet the standard?
