    Word,Cain was"turned aside after Satan"as in 1Tim. 5:15, and Job 2:6. John 8:44 (Cain)"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do"God calls the devil a murderer(so was Cain)Cain did not abide in truth(John14:6),Satan is a liar and the father of lies.What scripture were you thinking of when you said "Satan had Cain" 1Tim.1:4- God's instructions are"don't heed fables"

    Word,story of creation is not a fable or parable.Gen2:8,9,15,16,17.Gen3:1-7=Satan deceived Eve.The two trees are the tree of Life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. After she ate she had knowledge of good and evil.When she and Adam confessed,God cursed them both,removed them, and guarded the garden so they would not have access to the tree of Life. Cain was Adam and Eve's son.

    T. Eric; you are right! The story of how Christians started observing Sunday instead of the Sabbath, goes back to the Emperor Constantine; who after he became a Christian (?) still worshiped the sun-god (Nimrod), and wanted to keep observing sun-day in his honor. It has really nothing more to do with the first day of the week, like many think. The early disciples from the Gentiles didn't do that!

    I just now re-read my post of a month ago; "As to Eve and Adam not sinning ..... they had no choice ..... "; that is wrong. God created us with free choice. What I should have said was - up until the serpent entered the garden - man's free choice hadn't been 'tested'.

    Genesis 1 is a rejuvenation of the world that was where we all lived in spirit bodies and then Satan tried by setting up his political system was cast down. Satan had 1/3 of Gods children on his side they trail after him, tares whom he sends to earth. God at the katabole got very mad and there was a great flood in Jer 4. No Noah and Hebrew it says God submerged the earth in water not to a full end
