Bible Discussion Thread

  • Philip Christian Parks on Genesis 6:2
    The theory that the "sons of GOD" are the GODly sons of Seth's lineage while the "daughters of men" are the GOD rejecting daughters of Cain's descendants proves baseless and erroneous.

    Consider the following points of argument:

    > Seth's male descendants were not all inherently righteous by default, simply because Seth was their forefather.

    > From the silence of Scriptures, Bible students cannot assume all of Cain's descendants were evil and rebellious.

    > A marriage between the descendant males of Seth and the female descendants of Cain would not automatically guarantee an offspring of giants. If this were true, all "unequally yoked" ( 2Cor. 6:14) parents, if one is an unbeliever while the other is a believer, would produce grotesque hybrid giants.

    > If Seth's male offspring were inherently righteous enough to deserve the title "sons of GOD", then this demands answers to many questions:

    ? Why is Noah solely and singularly described as "a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with GOD" ( Gen. 6:9; cp. 7:1)?

    ? Why weren't any others of Seth in the Ark besides Noah, a descendant of Seth? Must we assume Noah was Seth's only and final righteous offspring?

    ? Did their marrying an unbeliever forfeit GOD's Mercy and abandon them to die with the rest of the wicked as The LORD de-creed ( Gen. 6:7)? The LORD would not do so according to HIS Promises to Abraham concerning Lot's safety in Sodom. Six times The LORD promised Abraham, "I will spare all the place for their (the righteous) sakes" (see Gen. 18:26-32).

    This theory implies that if Seth's male descendants were truly "sons of GOD", then they all, without exception, had to sin so grievously as to lose this title. So much for the Doctrine of Eternal Security.

    > Bible students commit hermeneutical malpractice to assume the "daughters of men (Heb. "adam")" was restricted to the female descendants of Cain. Such interpretation comes from prejudice and bias which The LORD prohibits (cp. Lev. 19:15).

    Jesus's Geneology came through Seth's lineage.

    God protected the lineage of Jesus all the way to Bethlehem.

    By saying what you have alleged, you show yourself to be a heretic.

    I rebuke you in the Name of Jesus, by Dominion and by the authority of Jesus Christ.

    First you must know Jesus the son of God or consider your vain prayers an insult to God .
