Popular Ghanaian actress, Efia Odo in her recent tweet stated that she believes in God but does not believe in the bible because it is man-made and full of fairy tales.
In her post on Twitter she questioned some stories that was written in the bible.
“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 reacted to her post online he said;
“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 who wanted more clarity asked;
“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 further stated that people should return to tradition religion.
“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.”
While referring to bible as fairytale she said, *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 atheist 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.”
