Who was CAIN’S WIFE?

WHY WAS IT O.K. FOR THEM & NOT US ?
 
It is not lawful to marry your sister, so who did Cain marry?
 
Were there other people on the earth besides Adam and Eve?
 
Does this have any relevance to the BIBLE’S VIEW OF SALVATION?

Skeptics have used Cain’s wife time and again to try to discredit the book of Genesis as a true historical record.

Completely ignoring the FACT that this very same question could be asked of Evolution, after all “Who did the first ape-man’s son sleep with?”

Sadly, most Christians have not been able to give an adequate answer to this question, in the past because of not knowing a lot about DNA at the time. As a result, the world thinks Christians cannot defend the authority of Scripture and, thus, the Christian faith.

For instance, at the historic Scopes trial in Tennessee in 1925, William Jennings Bryan, the prosecutor who stood for the Christian faith
(Who had NO scientific prowess…He was a Lawyer after all.) , failed to answer the question about Cain’s wife posed by the outspokenly anti-Christian ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow,who consulted with the science teachers of the day who were evolutionist’s.
The world’s press was focused on this trial, and what they heard has affected Christianity to this day—Christians are seen as unable to defend the Biblical record. 
And skeptics then make the logically fallacious jump of concluding that the Biblical record is indefensible!

Many people immediately reject the conclusion that Adam and Eve’s sons and daughters married each other by appealing to the law against brother-sister intermarriage a THOUSAND YEARS LATER. 
Some say that you cannot marry your relation. Actually, if you don’t marry your relation, you don’t marry a human! A wife is related to her husband even before they marry because all people are descendants of Adam and Eve—all are of ‘one blood.’  The same is true in Evolution all would be related by blood to the first Ape-man and Ape-Women, the same logic apply’s in one as the other.
The law forbidding marriage between close relatives was not given until the time of Moses (Leviticus 18–20). 
Provided marriage was one man to one woman for life (based on Genesis 1 and 2), there was no disobedience to God’s law originally when close relatives (even brothers and sisters) married each other.

It was not until some 400 years later that God gave Moses laws that forbade such marriages,WHY WAS THAT ?
Did God JUST realize 400 years later, that it was “Perverted to have “Incest” in the ranks and decided to invent NEW LAWS to avert it ?

Let’s be real here, do Evolutionist’s believe that at one point in their VAST TIME-LINE; AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF HUMANS THAT THERE WASN’T SEX BETWEEN FAMILY MEMBERS ?

PLEASE GET REAL!

It had to happen NO MATTER which “SYSTEM” YOU BELIEVE IN,CREATION or EVOLUTION!

Today, brothers and sisters (and half-brothers and half-sisters, etc.) are not permitted by law to marry because their children have an unacceptably high risk of being deformed.
The more closely the parents are related, the more likely it is that any offspring will be deformed.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=007722972X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThere is a very sound genetic reason for such laws that is easy to understand. Every person has two sets of genes that specify how a person is put together and functions. Each person inherits one gene of each pair from each parent.
Unfortunately, genes today contain many mistakes (because of sin and the Curse), and these mistakes show up in a variety of ways.
For instance, some people let their hair grow over their ears to hide the fact that one ear is lower than the other—or perhaps someone’s nose is not quite in the middle of his or her face, or someone’s jaw is a little out of shape—and so on.
Let’s face it, the main reason we call each other normal is because of our common agreement to do so!

The more distantly related parents are, the more likely it is that they will have different mistakes in their genes. Children, inheriting one set of genes from each parent, are likely to end up with pairs of genes containing a maximum of one bad gene in each pair. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0470551747&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe good gene tends to override the bad so that a deformity (a serious one, anyway) does not occur. Instead of having totally deformed ears, for instance, a person may only have crooked ones!
(Overall, though, the human race is slowly degenerating as mistakes accumulate, generation after generation.)

However, the more closely related two people are, the more likely it is that they will have similar mistakes in their genes, since these have been inherited from the same parents.
Therefore, a brother and a sister are more likely to have similar mistakes in their genes. A child of a union between such siblings could inherit the same bad gene on the same gene pair from both, resulting in two bad copies of the gene and serious defects WOULD RESULT.

However, Adam and Eve did not have accumulated genetic mistakes, AND therefore their Children had none until many Generations later of accumulated bad genes.

When the first two people were created, they were physically perfect. Everything God made http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0073227382&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrwas ‘very good’ (Genesis 1:31), so their genes were perfect—no mistakes! Can evolution even come close to that claim?
But, when sin entered the world (because of Adam—Genesis 3:6ff, Romans 5:12), SIN entered and cursed the world so that the perfect creation then began to degenerate, that is, suffer death and decay (Romans 8:22) Sin was a genetic disorder caused by disobedience to that which held matter together.
Over thousands of years, this degeneration has produced all sorts of genetic mistakes in living things, animal, plants and Human beings.

Cain was in the first generation of children ever born. He (as well as his brothers and sisters) would have received virtually no imperfect genes from Adam or Eve, since the effects of sin and the Curse would have been minimal to start with (it takes time for these copying errors to accumulate).
In that situation, brother and sister could have married with God’s approval, without any potential to produce deformed offspring.

By the time of Moses
(a few thousand years later)
degenerative mistakes would have built up in the human race to such an extent that it was necessary for God to forbid brother-sister (and close relative) marriage (Leviticus 18–20).
(Also, there were plenty of people on the Earth by now, and there was no reason for close relations to marry.)

WHAT ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF RACE IN THE BIBLE & WHAT SCIENCE HAS FOUND OUT?


http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B000V1VQLU&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrGenetics and evolution have been enemies from the beginning of both concepts. Gregor Mendel, the father of genetics, and Charles Darwin, the father of modern evolution, were contemporaries. 
At the same time that Darwin was claiming that creatures could change into other creatures, Mendel was showing that even individual characteristics remain constant.
While Darwin’s ideas were based on erroneous and untested ideas about inheritance, Mendel’s conclusions were based on careful experimentation.
Only by ignoring the total implications of modern genetics has it been possible to maintain the fiction of evolution.

An explanation of how the races came into being is quite puzzling for the average Christian.
It is not uncommon to hear Christians responding to this question with explanations which have roots in evolution ( God CREATED and then LET EVOLUTION TAKE OVER!)
and other unbiblical teaching. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0810957485&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrMany times we hear false explanations such as tanning effects of the sun on the people who settled in Africa caused them to develop very dark skin, or those in the East, because of a more moderate climate, developed the yellow tones of the Oriental peoples. 
The Caucasian peoples of the Northern hemisphere have lighter or white skin because of being exposed to a lesser degree of sun light.
Other explanations often offered as the origin of race are the curse on Cain (Gen. 4:10-15) and on Ham’s son Canaan (Gen. 9:20-25). Such explanations are false not being supported by the Bible or by science.

At some point in life every Christian will be confronted with what is called the “racial problem.”
When this occurs Christians and churches have often responded in ignorance to the truth as to the origin of race . 
The problem is often compounded both by false interpretations of the Bible and the erroneous teachings of evolution which has caused many to doggedly support false ideas. In order to face http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0520207416&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrthe issue and make a correct Biblical response, the Christian first needs to understand what the Bible has to say on the matter. 
Second, he needs to accent this Biblical knowledge with information from modern unbiased scientific investigation.

“Can race be Biblically defined?”

The term race does not appear in the Bible and it refers to differing peoples in terms such as family, tribe, people and nation. It groups people according to familial relationships and then into nationalities. 
An example of familial relationship is found in Genesis 10, where the genealogies listed are grouped by family. It should be noted that nowhere are the sons of Noah associated with race or color. 
An important passage on this matter is found in Genesis 10:5:

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B004L62FZM&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr“By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations” (Gen. 10:5).
NATION IS DEFINED AS ” ethnos” in the Greek New Testament

eth’-nos :

a race (as of the same habit), that is, a tribe; specifically a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by implication pagan): – Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

And from the Hebrew word :

gôy gôy
go’ee, go’-ee


Apparently from the sense of massing; a foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts: – Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

Nowhere in the Bible is prejudice based on what we determine as race; i.e. color of hair, skin, eyes or physical characteristics.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0199219826&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhen God commanded the children of Israel to be a separated people or to utterly destroy other peoples, it was always based on the principle of separation from sin, NOT because of being of a certain skin color or sex. 
The same principle of separation is presented in the New Testament when Christians are commanded to come out of the world

(The System under Satan’s deception)

and not be unequally (spiritually) yoked (Tied too in a way that DIMINISHES YOUR POWER to OVERCOME SIN,which is the natural result of “EVIL:
The void left when “Good” departs any system) with the unsaved (Those whose “Spiritual Essense,D.N.A. has been Darkened by the void of evil ). (See 2 Cor. 6:14) The principle here is clear,that the Bible defines “RACE” in spiritual NOT physical terms: 
THERE ARE ONLY TWO RACES (TWO SETS OF D.N.A. PREDISPOSED TO TWO DIFFERENT OUTCOMES) ON THE EARTH IN TERMS OF THE SPIRITUAL CONTEXT,”THE SAVED” & “THE UNSAVED”,WHAT THE BIBLE TERMS “THE JEW”(or those who are chosen) & “THE GENTILE” (those WITHOUT GOD); THE CHILDREN OF CAIN or THE CHILDREN OF SETH,

THE PRINCIPLES ARE THE SAME!
