Conjecture, just like the gap theory… Humanity is a unique creation… Adam was unique… Scripture is my guide. I interpret unclear passages using clearer passages…How about something like this:
God made humans to show his plan, his commandments, etc. God made Cain's wife. If Cain's wife came from Adam & Eve, then God sent Cain out to sin by laying with his sister. (He is omniscient, after all.)
God would never tempt someone to sin in such a manner. It makes more sense that he created people outside of the future Israeli line (from Adam, through Noah, to Abraham, etc.) When the flood came (unless you want to claim God had no foreknowledge of the flood), God wiped out all but the Israeli line.
All conjecture. Just a thought. Not explicitly told. But then again Cain's wife coming from Adam and Eve isn't either. We are all just guessing on this point.
Just wondering: What is the bible to you? Obviously, the Gospel message. But if, IF, big IF, God created other races that would be wiped out in the flood, does your reasoning say that this bible has to explain that, or even mention that? Other than, perhaps, big perhaps, someone like Cain's wife?
The Bible is God’s love letter and guide to life for His elect. The Bible is the very Word of God that brings life to His people…
