“The Bible without any doubt teaches that God chose to start
humanity off from only two people. This means that in the first few
generations, marriage had to be between extremely closely related
people, including at least one brother–sister union. The Bible says
that Adam and Eve had daughters as well. Cain could have married
his sister, or niece.
The biological problems caused by such unions today come from
a progressive accumulation of genetic defects since the Fall. An
originally perfect population would not have had any such problem.
The Bible teaches that even Abraham, living a long time after
creation, was still able to marry his half-sister, Sarah, without
any hint of biological problems in the offspring (Isaac). In doing
so he was not breaking God’s Law. The Law of Moses forbidding
intermarriage between close relatives was not given until centuries
after Abraham.” …”



About adventlife

I am a second generation Adventist who joined the church by baptism almost seven decades ago when the Adventist Church was still pro-life. I have a Ph. D. Degree in religion, and my dissertation was entitled "From Pro-life to Pro-choice: The Dramatic Shift in Seventh-day Adventists' Attitudes Toward Abortion." I recently published a book with said title which is available at You need to type my name in the Search blank space to access it. I believe that the Adventist Church should get out of the abortion business, especially out of the elective type of abortions. The church did compromise on this moral issue back in 1970 and many of its hospitals were allowed to profit from the killing of innocent unborn babies with impunity. The church needs to repent of this great moral sin and publicly admit that it was wrong for the "Remnant," Church which keeps God's Commandments, to profit from what the Bible and our Adventist pioneers labeled as murder. The Lord is merciful and forgiving, but public sins must be publicly repented of in order to secure God's forgiveness. P.S.: I recently published my second book dealing with abortion and the Adventist Church. The title is: “Murder in Paradise: A Serious Warning to the United States & the Adventist Church” Paperback: List Price: $22.49 $9.00 You Save: 60%
