What makes a murderer?


One of the primary themes of any crime drama, from the oldest Law and Order re-run to the recent Netflix phenomena “Making a Murderer”, is to attempt to explain what actually “caused” the Murder.  Even during the forensic era of television, when every other show was a CSI, MOTIVE was still an important element of every episode.  This week in the MURDER ONE series, as we investigate the oldest murder in history, we’re going to dive into the “How could this have happened?” aspect of the story of Cain and Abel.  Along the way, we’re going to deal with the very difficult questions of the case such as:  Why didn’t God stop the first Murder? He was there. He witnessed it. Why would an all-powerful, loving God allow the first-born son of Adam and Eve to murder his brother?  Why Do bad things happen to good people anyway???   (Abel was by all accounts a great son and a righteous man)  Why do some bad people “get away with murder”?   (Cain went on to marry, have children, and found a city).   The story of Cain and Abel gives us some interesting (and sometimes surprising) answers to all of this questions and more…
