Where Did Cain Get His Wife?
The Bible tells us
that, after Cain slew his brother, Abel, God punished and cursed him,
sending him east of Eden to the land of Nod (Genesis 4:15-16). Yet
curiously, in verse 17, it says that, "Cain knew his wife; and she
conceived". Since Cain's parents were Adam and Eve, the first humans
God created, where did Cain get his wife? And further, if it were his
sister, isn't that incest - something the Bible explicitly forbids?
Non-believers commonly cite this scripture as evidence that the Bible cannot be
trusted (at least it's Creation account) and is no different than any
other fictional story. They say that there had
to be another race or group of peoples roaming the earth at the same
time in order for Cain to marry. Many Christians have a difficult time
with this accusation, but with careful examination, the answer becomes
evident.Read the rest at Creation-Club.org
