I’m reading your response regarding Cain and Abel’s offering on your site. You mentioned that no matter whether Cain would have brought the best of his produce or not his offering was not going to be acceptable to God because sin offering required the shedding of innocent blood. I want to know where in Genesis 4 does it tell that they were doing a SIN offering? Secondly, how do we know that the lamb that Abel offered was without blemish?
I have a question about something our church and my family are going through right now. My niece, who is almost 30, is getting married to a man she has known for about 4 years. He was brought up Catholic, but says he believes the gospel way of salvation. My niece thinks he is saved. Her father isn’t sure. One of the reasons they (our pastor, her dad, and the deacons) give is that he is not baptized. Is baptism a qualification for marriage in other churches? I have gone to our church for almost 50 years and have never heard of it being an issue before.
I know Christ was sinless and never sinned ever, even when tempted but my question is: Could He have sinned if He choose to? I think he could not. I have asked many preachers and elders and have never really gotten a clear answer. Please let me know what you think.
