Despite the crippling compromise of unregenerate spirituality, man still had a conscience, and possessed the ability to make choices. Man could choose to show kindness, compassion, and love; or ugliness, selfishness, and vengefulness. And man could choose to approach God the way God had directed, or attempt to approach God as a mere human saw fit.
The tangled web of human sin began with a just few strands - lying, rebellion, fear, guilt, and shame. Now within the first generation of mankind those strands evolved into a fearsome snare that included jealousy, hatred, and murder. Cain killed Abel because Abel's works were righteous, and Cain's were not. Cain could have asked for or bartered for an animal from Abel's flock to properly prepare a sacrifice. But he felt his garden and orchard produce should be just as good and God should accept that - after all, he was bringing the best of it. Against this backdrop, we examine select anagrams from the phrases *Cain’s Vegetable Offering-Abel’s Animal Sacrifice*, *Vegetables: Rejection Flock Sacrifice: Accepted*, and *Cain’s Produce Sacrifice and Familiar Murder*. The anagrams are enclosed in quotes.
One of the anagrams in this phrase appears to suggest that Cain prepared a beverage for his brother that incapacitated him in some way prior to murdering him. Not proven, but definitely not impossible.
