Consequences of the first murder by Cain in the Bible

The first murder ever recorder was done by Cain as read in the Bible in Genesis Chapter 4. He was jealous of his brother Abel whose offering the Lord preferred to his. So he killed him.
Doubts overcome those who isolate themselves.
To the person who has been reborn, it becomes impossible to commit real sin: to deliberately refuse to love, or to forgive or to continue to struggle.
The Lord demands faithfulness and perseverance from those he has chosen: this is how we save a world that seeks truth everywhere and does not know to which Lord to surrender.
God sees the way one has used his talents; and the sin is to have kept for self what one has received. Many times God waits for a person in this or that desert of his or her life.
Each time God calls people to a mission, he begins by reassuring them, for they immediately understand that such mission will fully take possession of them.
We all receive existence from God, but God exists in himself and depends on no one and nothing whatsoever. God is one, and none of those who receive existence from him can add anything to God.
God is a wholly active and perfectly free person; and he calls us to be persons who exist in truth. Hence, God creates a world in which we can act responsibility.
To worship God does not mean, as some believe, to lie prostrate before him, but rather to approach him face to face. God waits to be served by persons who, in turn, free others.
Experience teaches us that in order to save one’s neighbor, neither material help nor political change nor prayer is sufficient.
God, who exists, is concerned about those who still do not exist in truth. We say that God saves human persons; and so we suppose that these are real persons and not undeveloped persons without liberty, or responsibility. Salvation is not the washing of souls but the restoration of the human person in all dimensions-individual, family and social.
Often enough, society puts obstacles in the way of anyone who does not want to play dirty and who refuses to imitate the lifestyle of selfish persons.
At times, to gain the kingdom we will have to sacrifice even our job, our security and our life.
Scandals are part and parcel of this world, but the power of evil does not diminish in any way the glory that God will receive in the end. Through suffering and hunger for justice God will awaken love and make it grow.
Forgiveness must replace the thirst for revenge. The offensive suffer from our companions are nothing compared with our offenses against God.
The world needs; above everything else, the forgiveness of God, and those who want a more just society will not achieve it through accusations and hatred.

    1. The serpent was the one who encouraged the woman, Eve, in the Garden of Eden to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. It told her she would not die but that her eyes would be opened and she will be like a god, knowing good and evil. The serpent said to the woman, “you will not die, but God know knows that the day you eat it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:4)
