Sons of God

Additional Links

The descendants of Seth were called by the name of the Lord (Genesis 4:25,26 ). This is not true in reference to the descendants of Cain. The servants of God in all ages have been called the sons of God (Job 1:6; Romans 8:14; 1 John 3:2 ). The character of Seth's descendants proves that they were the sons of God (Genesis 5:3-29; Genesis 6:9; Genesis 7:1 ). The character of Cain's descendants proves that they were not the sons of God, for Cain Himself was a murderer, a fugitive, and vagabond (Genesis 4:8-14 ), and his descendants were polygamists and murderers (Genesis 4:17-23 ).
