Who Was Cain Worried About?


Dear Brother Ron

In Genesis, chapter 4, God is punishing Cain for killing Abel. In verse 14 Cain says to God, "Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass that every one that findeth me shall slay me."

Now up to this point, there are only three people on the planet: Adam, Eve, and Cain. So if that's the case then who is Cain worried about slaying him?

Dear Phil

This points out another fallacy in the Adam and Eve story. We find in Gen 4:16, "And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. Gen 4:17  And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Either there were people living in the land of Nod or Cain married a monkey. Since the Bible talks about Cain knowing his wife, there must have been somebody to marry them. What church were they from, since Cain was no longer in the presence of the Lord? Did they have common law back then?

We can argue these philosophical points about Biblical history until we are blue in the face and still not reach a definite conclusion. I prefer to spend my time trying to build a better future for God's children instead of arguing about a past I can do nothing about.

Best always
Brother Ron
