该隐 went out from the Lord's presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
该隐 had been created by God. He had been created with life from God. He had been created for God. And now he was separated from God. Unconfessed sin and rebellion makes a person so miserable in the presence of a holy, righteous God that the sin must either be confessed and cleansed or the sinner must leave God’s presence.
该隐’s tragic life illustrates the hard lesson that guilt is our friend if it drives us to God. However, if we refuse to turn to God in repentance and confession, guilt will drive us away from God to our own destruction. 该隐’s bitterness that was rooted in resentment and rebellion bore wicked fruit in his family for generations to follow. 该隐’世代相传的罪恶不断加剧，直到世世代代的文明被其破坏。
你一生中的罪过– if left unchecked –会破坏孩子的生活吗？
