for killing his brother... Heavenly Father gave him a birth mark on his a**?

Where?

Nose?
Earlobe?
Forehead?

How big was it...?

Please I really want to know the answers to the birth mark saga of Cain.

Can't you even just use a wee-bit of that grey matter to think of just a bit of something intelligent to say? Do you always have to speak so lamely and pathetically?
You're racist buddy claimed 'mark' was in one single English Bible version and he knew that for a fact. So I showed him he was 'mistaken' by his idiocy of thought again. And your response was...
"The sure sign you have got No Surprise.'...lol...you are so predictable....you go dude...
Impressive... a response that is longer than a one liner, I wasn't sure you had it in ya.

...

All you proved is that you will side with a racist bigot whore to prove the Church wrong,

because you are an atheist liar, who won't even research facts or comments as potential truths. You just give your ignorant one liners without even thinking.

Unless you threaten to kill Jesus, or his prophets.

Changing his "ENTIRE BODY COLOR"

is not

"a mark"

If you're so cynical about a "birthmark"

How is it you take "CHANGING THE ENTIRE BODY COLOR" so seriously?

Hmmm sparky? Riddle that?

It says "a mark", and that's from "an oath".

How do you and these Morons get "his entire body color changed"

Not a "mark" on his body

as the BIBLE says

No, the entire BODY changed color itself.

NOT like the BIBLE says.

How did that notion come about?

You do see why I took your sentence to mean what it said? Thankyou for the clarification :)

Passages using "mark" from the word 'owth' in the KJV...

Genesis 4:15
And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Leviticus 19:28
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

Ruth 3:4
And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.

1 Samuel 1:12
And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth.

1 Samuel 20:20
And I will shoot three arrows on the side thereof, as though I shot at a mark.

Riddle for the racist bigot whore:

THE MARK SET UPON CAIN WAS SUPPOSED TO SET HIM APART SO OTHERS WOULD KNOW WHO HE WAS AND WOULD NOT KILL HIM.

How would people know
who he was

from the front

instantly, so they didn't kill him by mistake?

GOT YOU!

Leviticus 19:28 - does not use the hebrew "OWTH". Uses a different Hebrew word.

Same for the others!

Leviticus 19:28 - "QA'AKA" which was NOT used for Cain. This is the word that WOULD have been used in Hebrew if Cain was actually given a physical mark!
Ruth 3:4 - "QAL" which means to make a "note"!(Mark this down)
1 Sam 1:12 - "SHAMAR" which means to take heed.(Mark my words)
1 Sam 20:20 - "MATTARA" which refers to an easy target,(He's a mark)

NONE OF THESE MATCH YOUR LYING FILTH

I've WAITED for this. You tried and tried to avoid and I forced your hand.

And you know what's so funny? You tried to sneak it by didn't you?

Throw the various hebrew words in for the same "ENGLISH" word.

The English word "mark" has several meanings, some are even homograms. In the END, none of those and none of the Hebrew words for "discoloration" is used to describe black people.

You little PUNK! I finally GOT YOU

1. Changing his skin to a black person wouldn't help him stand out in any way. Why would you think it would? Why would you assume it's black skin verses any other color? Isn't that racist?

2. Even still, he's targeted not "by accident" but because people would come after him for killing his brother. THEREFORE, people WOULD recognize him, THEN try to kill him.

WHICH MEANS...

Whatever the OWTH.. the SIGN is.. it would be a sign to the OTHERS that God is protecting him. THUS a mere change of skin color would not make such an effect.

But perhaps something supernatural to show his wouldbe killers to back off. Since the Hebrew word OWTH over SIXTY times ELSEWHERE refers to a sign. And those signs are usually miracles.

No she's right.

You went and tried to counter by finding various uses of "mark" in English bibles.

yet the issue here isn't the use of "Mark" elsewhere, but in that passage.

Did the word Mark in that passage mean

Physical mark like a tatoo
Mark as in take a note
Mark as in mark my words
Mark as in easy target
and so on?

And despite all that, none of it, not in English or Hebrew refers to changing someone's ENTIRE BODY COLOR. That's not a "mark". That's like elsewhere in the Bible
"Can an Ethiopian changge his skin, or a leopard it's spots".

The concept of a dark skinned human "Shacor" or a racially black human "Kushim" is NEVER related to CAIN.... NOT ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE.

There is no implied notion of a Kushim having Shacor skin due to an "OWTH" or a "QA'AKA" by God on Cain.

In other words, no matter how many different ways you try to switch the hebrew OR English around

You cannot find a single instance of a black person related to anything about Cain or the mark of Cain.

No where is "Owth" used to imply the Ethiopian's skin is actually the result of a mark on Cain. Which would undoubtedly be referred to, IF IT WERE THE CASE.

Keep in mind 1. the Hebrew isn't talking about Ethiopians per-se, but black skinned people. 2. Leopard SPOTS are also right there.

Basically the Bible is inadvertently taunting you in Jeremiah 13:23.

And I am enjoying this.

I can't WAIT for your reply. Twist it like a PRETZEL and then say that it is me doing it.

You're the one trying to push the notion that the skin color of the ENTIRE BODY was changed... and YOURE the one using this illogical falsehood stupidity:

1. God did it so people wouldn't accidentally kill him? Even though the whole point was that Cain would be afraid for those deliberately seeking to murder him. You Dummy.

2. You thinking that changing his skin color is somehow helping people "not" recognize him? Well you gotta make a whole bunch of assumptions. But before we do so, you're as coy as No Surprise. What color was Cain's ENTIRE BODY CHANGED TO (since you're insisting he wasn't merely marked). After all, dummy, now he's got this newfangled thing going on that attracts MORE attention!

SO the lesson is, you little white supremacists.

Don't rely on ENGLISH to explain HEBREW IDEAS!

ESPECIALLY when your silly notion doesn't even MATCH the ENGLISH WORD.

When does a "MARK" actually refer to changing the ENTIRE BODY?

Hey I'm going to mark something, oh a piece of paper. So let me change the ENTIRE COLOR OF THE WHOLE PAPER!

STUPID!

You have to figure that out.

But Just because it HAPPENED, doesn't mean that the passage about CAIN has anything to DO with it.

You trying to say that white people came from the mark of Cain or something? That would be rather racist of you.

You trying to say that black people came from the mark of Cain or something? That would be rather racist of you.

One but not the other... hmmm...

OR neither, and perhaps skin color variation came about from some other means!

See that's just it

YOU ARE THE ONE FIXATED ON SKIN COLOR!

And YOU ARE THE ONE SO RACIST you AUTOMATICALLY GO TO

"MARK" to mean "SKIN COLOR" even though it's not

why not the tower of Babbel?

but more importantly, why focus on Cain?

is it a coiencidence that you're focusing on the same passage that was used against black people for hundreds of years?

And thirdly the psychology.

You guys have been saying that I'm the racist.

yet here you are...

so obsessed with having a nice package easy answer that fills your void of racism

"how did that happen genius"

AS IF... I have to have an explanation to REPLACE this racist myth garbage...

that causes YOU and No surprise to take the meaning of "A MARK" and changes it to "THE ENTIRE BODY COLOR CHANGED"

I mean you'd AT LEAST acknowledge, with all of your rigid interpretations... AT LEAST say "Yea Osirica, it's a metaphor"

BUT NO...

Look at you! Sinking!

And your buddy No Surprise? I lobbed two torpedos "Owth" and the Syriac countdown on his candy behind!
