Ghanaian actress, Efia Odo has stated that she believes in God but she doesn’t believe in the Bible. According to her, the book is man-made and full of fairy tales.
The actress made this known on Twitter where she questioned some of the stories written in the Bible.
“In the Bible Adam, Eve, Cain,Abel were the only ones in the world. After Cain killed Abel he ran to the east of Eden. Genesis 4:17 it says Cain made love to his wife. He was in the east of Eden in Nod. So where did the WIFE come from if they were the only ones in the world?”, she asked.
A man waded into the discussion with some clarity to her question:
“The bible never explicitly says that these four where the only ones on earth. They had other siblings. the fact that Cain was afraid that someone would kill him for killing Abel signified that the world at the time was a close knit family. So Cain left his own people to wander”.
Efia Odo asked again: “Where is the wife coming from? The Wife of Cain? That’s my question.”
The man replied: “His sister. They married their sisters back in the day. The way the bible puts it before Cain killed Abel he might have already been married to his sister. Like I said earlier, everyone on the earth was related the reason why Cain was afraid that one of his brothers would avenge”.
The actress continued by insinuating that Africans need to return to the religion of their ancestors.
“I’m just trying to get out of this alluded system. Before religion was brought to North Africans and transcended to us west Africans, we had our own way of life and connecting to God. Before colonization we were spiritual people. We’ve lost our sense of spirituality.”
Descending heavily on the Bible, Efia stated that it is a fairy tale book which she doesn’t believe in.
*Smh y’all find excuses to believe these fairytales. Go ahead.
Well then tell the Christians that. They believe it’s actual things that happened and not just a faith building storybook.
I’m not an athiest dummy! I believe in God, PERIODT!
Believing in God is not the same as believing in the Bible. I believe in God.
I believe in God not words written by man. Don’t care if your think they were inspired or not. Your belief and mine doesn’t have to be on the same. You believe in your God and imma believe in mine.”
