My full reply to RENO OMOKRI On Adam and Eve, Creation~FRZ
My brother Reno said that the Hebrew and Ethiopic theology only kept male genealogy and I totally disagree with this thesis, as first of all, it’s not accurate, because the scripture does mention that Adam had daughters. The only problem is; Adam had daughters AFTER his son Cain, NOT before Cain had his own children.
So it is impossible to say Cain married one of his sisters as this is not scripturally accurate.
The biggest elephant in the room that my brother Reno didn’t acknowledge, is the fact that the book of Genesis was NEVER found complete. As a matter of fact, the scroll where Genesis was written had entire portions missing and these portions were filled up not by the Holy Spirit, rather, by what men thought would be the best possible fit, hence the scriptural discrepancy found in Genesis 1 where the scriptures say God created both male and female together.
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.]
And then in the next chapter, the man was now alone??? After a male and a female were created???
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”
This discrepancy in the Genesis account has led to many fables inside and outside Christianity, a notable one being the story of Lilith, presumed to be Adam’s first wife, based on what is generally considered ‘uninspired Jewish folklore’. How do we debunk this? To be honest, we can’t! This is because of the missing portions of scripture, we also can’t accept it.
(2 Thessalonians 2:13, John 4:24)
When next you travel to Israel, kindly get a scholar to translate this line for you:
לִּילִ֔ית וּמָצְאָ֥ה לָ֖הּ מָנֽוֹחַ׃
Speaking of traveling, you stated:
“I’m not an internet-based researcher. I have visited Ethiopia 7 times for research purposes. I went on research trips to Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Rome, The Vatican, and Greece.”
Although travel for research is invaluable, ruling out the inestimable advantage the birds-eye perspective that the internet and documentaries offer you, is perilous!
Opting to abandon them as a dependable tool for research certainty can leave us with a skeptical paradox, that leads to biases resulting from a fixation on certain specified facts, while clearly ignoring others.
Now, to MY knowledge not only are there missing parts of scripture, entire chapters; even entire books are known to have been removed and there is no known original copy of any of the books of the Bible, NONE!
I never averred that Lilith was Adams first wife, I only highlighted the paucity of scripture available to make a concrete argument for or against this thesis.
In the absence of this, what we are doing is transferring people from one religious box into another; in the process losing souls meant to be won.
You must understand that modern-day Christians ask questions and the submission you gave was simply not good enough in the light of the dilemma presented. The fact that only males were mentioned cant even be considered circumstantial evidence as Adam had no daughter before Seth!
