The Serpent Seed Doctrine, aka The Two Seedline Doctrine | Everyone accepts the fact that the woman’s seed is a literal family line leading to Christ. They don’t question that. But most reject any notion of a literal serpent seed. They say, “Oh, no. We can’t have that. That is a racist teaching.” If the woman’s seed is a biological family line, then the serpent’s seed MUST also be a biological family line. To say otherwise would be wholly inconsistent with Gen.3:15.
“And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.” -Genesis 4:1
Many stop here and say, “Well, that solves it. No more needs be said. Adam is Cain’s biological father. Plain and simple.”
But if we keep reading on to Genesis 4:2 we see that Eve continued in labor and gave birth to another son—Abel. Meaning: Cain and Abel were twins. Check it out:
“And SHE AGAIN bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.” -Genesis 4:2
“So-what if they were twins?” you might say. I’ll tell you what, it means there were two conceptions, not just one. And it just so happens God mentioned another conception just prior to this in Genesis 3.
For immediately after Eve admitted that she was “beguiled” or seduced by the serpent (2 For. 11:3), the serpent is cursed and God says:
“I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between THY SEED and HER SEED; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and THY CONCEPTION; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children…” -Genesis 3:15-16
Look! There are two different seeds mentioned here that require two separate conceptions.
Adam was the father of one seed, and Satan the father of the other seed.
