#2 GOD ONLY MADE ONE

RACE THE HUMAN RACE

Although people come in di er-

ent colors, shapes, and sizes, and

although they o en associate more

closely with those whom they nd

more similar in ways to themselves,

the fact is, there is only one human

race. Racism is ridiculous because

we are all related, not by means

of naturalistic evolution, but by

special Creation. No one person

is inherently of more value than

another person. We are all sons and

daughters of Adam and Eve—the

specially created couple whom God

made thousands of years ago in

the Garden of Eden. What’s more,

we are also sons and daughters of

Noah and his wife, through whom

the Earth was repopulated a er the

worldwide Flood of Genesis 6-8.

As the apostle Paul informed the

Athenians 2,000 years ago, God

“made from

one

man

every nation of man-

kind to live on all the

face of the earth” (Acts

17:26, ESV). We are all

physically related. We

are all of one race—the

one human race.

#3 GOD DOESN’T PLAY

FAVORITES…AND NEITHER

SHOULD WE

God’s all-loving, perfectly just

nature will not allow Him to love

someone more than another based

upon the color of a person’s skin

or the nation in which one was

born. Similar to how God cannot

lie (Titus 1:2), God cannot show

favoritism. Peter said: “God shows

no partiality. But in every nation

whoever fears Him and works

righteousness is accepted by Him”

(Acts 10:34-35). According to Paul,

“God does not judge by external

appearance” (Galatians 2:6, NIV).

In short, it is impossible to hold

“the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ,

(the Lord) of glory, with respect

of persons” (James 2:1, ASV). e

Christian’s care and concern for his

fellow brother by Creation and by

Christ is to be color-blind.
