The lesson on October 20, 2019 was part 29 of the "Genesis" study. This week Wayne looked at the descendants of Cain and hightlighted that they weren't knuckle draggers. In fact, Cain's line were talented tillers and the Hebrew word inferred them being "Smiths" e.g. blacksmith, etc. Often you find those who are opposed to God being themselves talented and making things of value. Why? Well, each one of us are created in the image of God and are given talents from God even though they won't acknowledge it. When Cain was asked by God where was his brother Abel, he responded disrespectfully with "am I my brothers keeper?". In fact, Cain you did have the responsibility. In your rebellion you wanted to establish your own way to please God from your own works in addition to being responsible for your brother. The scripture reading was from Genesis 4:19-24 KJV
This study was given by Dr. McLain in his Friday Night Bible Study sometime in 1971--the exact date is unknown. This study involves some Bible aerobics so it's advisable to keep your Bible open and ready. He gives scriptural proof that Christ Jesus is both the written and incarnate Word with proof texts from both the old and new testaments.
