Cain’s Rejected Offering

If it were not for what we read in the New Testament, we should be at a loss to account for the rejection of Cain’s offering, as given in Genesis (ch. iv. 5).

In Hebrews xi. 4, we read:

“By faith Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous”. So it is evident Cain’s offering was rejected because it was not offered with faith.

In view of the fact that, even under the Law, the fruits of the earth were offered unto the Lord (Deut. xxvi. 2, 10), it seems reasonable to conclude Cain’s offering would have been accepted had it been offered with faith, without which it is impossible to please God (Heb. xi. 6).
