Answer to questions (06/24/2007)
From: Lorayne Wernecke


Here are the answers to the earlier questions (from the Bible).

1. Gen. 1:26 Then God said "Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth. And over all the creatures that move along the ground."

As you read on in verses 27-31, you will see more of God's instructions to Adam, for what He wants him to be doing.

But he was still alone and needed a helpmate.

2. Genesis 18. The Lord God said "It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Gen. 21-22. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, He took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made woman He had taken out of the man, and He brought her to the man.

3. Adam and Eve's children were Cain and Abel. Gen. 4:1-2 Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, "With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man." 2. Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.

Read on for more information on Cain and Abel, leading up to the next question.

4. Why Cain killed Abel. 4:2-12 Now Abel kept flocks and Cain worked the soil. Abel brought fat portions from his firstborn, and Cain brought some of his crops as an offering. The Lord looked with favor on Abel's but not on Cain's, so Cain was very angry. He was jealous of Abel and later killed him.

God was asking for a living (blood offering) and Cain did not listen to God, but was angry at God and Abel.

5. Why did God have Noah built the ark?

Genesis 6:5-8 God saw how wicked man had become, and was grieved that He had made man on the earth, and His heart was filled with pain. So He said, "I will wipe mankind from the face of the earth." But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. He asked Noah to build the ark and save his family.

6. What is the meaning of the rainbow? 9:11-14 I establish my covenant with you; never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never will there be a flood to destroy the earth.

7. Why do you believe the Bible? Or don't you believe it? God doesn't force anyone to believe, but He did have it written for us to study and learn from it. It is there for our help and correction as we live our lives and try to do His bidding. I hope you have enjoyed going through these questions. And finding the answers.

Jesus loves you and so do I.
