Biblical inerrancy is the belief that the Bible “is without error or fault in all its teaching”.
Reno Omokri has digested an unanswered question in the bible regarding where Cain got his wife to marry since God created only two people in the beginning.
Who Did Cain Marry If There Were No Women on Earth, Except Eve? (Part 1)
One thing that people have tried to use to discredit the inerrancy of Scripture is the fact that Cain was able to marry and have children, even though there is no record of Adam and Eve having daughters at the time when he killed his brother, Abel. They see this as evidence that there were either other people on Earth at that time, unlike what Scripture says, or that Scripture is inaccurate and reliable.
Neither position is accurate. Let me explain.
1 Corinthians 2:14 says:
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
If your natural senses lead you, you can never understand the Word of God. The Word is spiritual. Christ said as much in John 6:63:
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
So, how did Cain have children and propagate his lineage after he was banished from the presence of his parents?
If you read Genesis chapter 5, you will see quite clearly that Adam had children BEFORE Seth. Obviously, Cain and Abel were born BEFORE Seth.
Genesis 5:3-4 says:
“Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and DAUGHTERS.”
Hebrew and Ethiopic theology does NOT record female ancestry, that is why the daughters of Adam, which he had BEFORE Seth, are not named. Scripture just says that he had daughters.
If you read Numbers 1:2, you will see that in the first census ever taken, God asked Moses to count only MALES.
“Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of names, every male individually.”
In Christ's ancestry in Mathew 1 and Luke 3, only MALES were recorded. Even when Christ fed the 5 thousand with the two fishes and five loaves in Mark 6, and again, when He fed the 4 thousand in Mark 8, only MALES were mentioned.
