13 The LORD God then asked the woman, “Why did you do such a thing?” The woman answered, "The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it."
14 Then the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you eat all the days of your life.
15 3 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.”
Who are the “offspring” of the serpent? I know from John 19, 26-27
[font=‘Times New Roman’]("When Jesus saw his mother 11 and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. ") [/font]that I am a son of the woman, both Mary and Eve. Through no choice or merit of my own. I did not choose original sin, and I do not merit Mary’s love and intercession.
Who then are the offspring of the serpent? Did satan beget demons? Are some humans, not written in the book of life, the offspring of the serpent? What does that say about those people? Thier merits? Obviously he is the father of all lies, and Jesus is the truth, but is there more to the emnity between the “offspring”?
Thanks for any help
