Genesis 4-6

Genesis 4-6
The head of chapter four is titled cain and Abel and as you can expect it tells the story of cain and Abel. The sin nature that had so recently became evident in Adam and Eve had been passed on to their two sons who eventually gave way to the whole world becoming corrupt. God found favor on Abel when they had both made their offerings and this made Abel angry. He then invites his brother into the field where he kills him and God curses and banishes him. I think it is really important to understand that even if Adam and Eve weren’t tempted satan would have quickly found another to devour and corrupt. Also I think that is noteworthy Cain is worried that if he becomes a wanderer that others will kill him. Now when i first read this I was extremely curious and after researching a little it became clear that Adam and Eve had, had several more kids and there were now multiple generations living. This is explained in chapter 5, in detail. In chapter 6 the wickedness of the world had become so great that God contemplated destroying them all together. Luckily a man named Noah found favor with God. However God still had to destroy the rest of the people and living creatures of the earth but would save two of each kind of land animal and the rest of Noah’s immediate family. (see next post)
