I have been reading a book called “The Creation Answers Book” and was reading about Cain. It’s written by the same people who run creation.com.
A huge question that people want to know the answer to is “Who was Cain’s wife?”
In the book, there is a story of an old man who said he would accept Christ if someone could answer his question of who was Cain’s wife. No-one could ever answer him, so he went to his grave, never accepting Christ because he could not believe the bible.
If someone had have been able to answer him, he could possibly have been saved.
It was at a fair in a small country town that one of the contributors to this book told her the answer. She was shocked and “in a daze” when told the answer. She simply could not believe that someone told her the answer.
The man refused the money though.We are told in 1 Peter 3:15 “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
Are we prepared enough to answer those questions that atheists and non-believers alike ask, as in the one above?We need to be able to answer those questions because it just might make someone think outside of their own box.
If they can be shown that the bible isn’t just a “story book”, then they might actually be brave enough to take up a copy and read it.
You never know, your answer could just save a soul. (Or at least get them thinking anyway.) 😉
Here is the link to the actual chapter in the book I’ve been reading: Who was Cain’s wife?
I hope this clears the question up for you. Don’t forget to share it if you know of anyone, Christians or unbelievers, who would like to know the answer to this question. 🙂
