How do we explain the different RACES?

From the beginning of creation it was God’s will for man to populate the whole earth, but in Genesis chapter 11 we read the historic account that human society was of one language and determined with one mind to stay together (Genesis 11:4).  Due to their disobedience to the LORD, He confused (or confounded) their language, so that they could not understand one another.  In doing so, the Lord “scattered them upon the face of all the earth” (Genesis 11:5-9).  As a result of the different languages, people married those whose language they could understand.  This arrangement produced separate INBREEDING groups.

Over a few generations these inbreeding groups produced specific characteristics, including different color eyes, different shape of ears and nose, along with different shades of skin color.  What most people do not know (and the media along with academia will not inform so as to continue racial strife) is that there is only on color of skin.  It is called melanin.  Some who are darker have more melanin, and those who are lighter have less melanin.  Nevertheless, despite different characteristics, different languages, different shades of skin color, we all have blood flowing through our bodies, we all are given a soul, and we all are created in the image of God according to (Genesis 1:27).

As foreign as this may seem to this generation, “racial barriers” are broken down by the preaching of the gospel of God’s love and grace and not by Political Correctness.  Political Correctness is based upon tolerance while Biblical Correctness is based upon love.  Now let me ask you, “Which would you want, someone to just tolerate you, or for someone to love you?”  My choice is that I want to love and be loved.  If you are honest with yourself that would be your choice as well.

Regardless of the race haters and racial instigators – racial barriers can be broken down whereby different people celebrate their cultural differences under God’s love and grace.  In fact, there are many Biblical examples of racial barriers being broken by the simple preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  In Acts chapter 2, Jews from every “nation” believed.  In Acts chapter 8, there is the bringing in of the Samaritans and the Ethiopian eunuch into Christianity.  Acts chapter 10 records the preaching of the gospel to many Italians in the house of Cornelius.  While in Acts 17:16-34, the gospel is preached to the Greeks in Athens.  Therefore, if any racial barriers are to broken down it will come through the Church of Jesus Christ being BIBLICALLY CORRECT.

The truth is that the original manuscripts of the Bible do not use the word “race” to describe different people.  Rather, God uses the words “NATIONS, TRIBES, KINDRED, TONGUE, and PEOPLE.”  If you find a bible that uses the word “race” it is because the translators were influenced by an evolutionary mind set simply because the concept of “race” was purely invented for convenience in evolutionary biological and anthropological studies.  Such concepts led to the pseudo-scientific belief (false-belief) that one race is superior to others.  Once again, this is an evolutionary mind set.  This historical truth cannot be emphasized too much.  Even though we cannot and should not label all evolutionary scientists as racist in their personal philosophies, but like it or not, this humanistic philosophy can be traced throughout history as promoting racism.  All a person has to do is read the writings of Charles Darwin and see the “race” language he used to promote his white Anglo-Saxon heritage as superior.

The Bible teaches that there is only “one blood” or one race of men upon the face of the earth – the human race (Acts 17:26), and that freedom from this sin cursed world is for “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).  So I encourage you (regardless of the culture or color of the church), find a fellowship of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and learn the bible.  As you come to the knowledge of God’s sovereign grace, you too will see “race” – erased!

 “And (GOD) hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;” Acts 17:26
