Hardly the place I would expect a Scriptural exposition, but it is a surprisingly accurate one. Cain was, in fact, being a “smart-ass” in his response to God’s question about his (dead) brother’s location. He was trying to shift the focus away from his own responsibility for killing him!
This is interesting in light of our pompous POTUS who so often uses this phrase to try to shame us all into supporting his socialist programs against our better judgment.
Maybe we now know which “smart-ass” to kick? (Tuesday’s coming!!)
