Ghanaian actress, Efia Odo, on Thursday said that she believes in God but she does not regard the Bible as any serious book worthy of attention.
Efia Odo, who went biblical on Twitter, sought to find out who Cain married after killing his brother Abel.
As Twitter users reacted, Efia Odo made described the Bible as just a storybook with “some faith building scriptures and relatable moments”.
“In the Bible Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel were the only ones in the world. After Cain killed Abel he ran to the east of Eden. Genesis 4:17 it says Cain made love to his wife. He was in the east of Eden in Nod. So where did the WIFE come from if they were the only ones in the world?”, she asked
A man waded into the discussion with some clarity to her question:
“The Bible never explicitly says that these four were the only ones on earth. They had other siblings. the fact that Cain was afraid that someone would kill him for killing Abel signified that the world at the time was a close-knit family. So Cain left his own people to wander.”
Efia Odo asked again:
“Where is the wife coming from? The Wife of Cain? That’s my question.”
The man replied:
“His sister. They married their sisters back in the day. The way the bible puts it before Cain killed Abel he might have already been married to his sister. Like I said earlier, everyone on the earth was related the reason why Cain was afraid that one of his brothers would avenge”.
The actress continued by insinuating that Africans need to return to the religion of their ancestors.
“I’m just trying to get out of this alluded system. Before religion was brought to North Africans and transcended to us west Africans, we had our own way of life and connecting to God. Before colonization we were spiritual people. We’ve lost our sense of spirituality.”
Descending heavily on the Bible, Efia stated that it is a fairy tale book which she doesn’t believe in.
*Smh y’all find excuses to believe these fairytales. Go ahead.
Well then tell the Christians that. They believe it’s actual things that happened and not just a faith building storybook
I’m not an athiest dummy! I believe in God, PERIODT!
Believing in God is not the same as believing in the Bible. I believe in God
I believe in God not words written by man. Don’t care if your think they were inspired or not. Your belief and mine doesn’t have to be on the same. You believe in your God and imma believe in mine.”
Mom just called me and asked me if I believe in God, told her ABSOLUTELY, no cap. She said alright then that’s all that matters, Love you ❤️.
Love you too mommy ❤️
