The Bible clearly condemns all forms of racism and views every person as equally valuable. Let’s look at what God’s word says about our subject, then we’ll consider some common questions people ask about the Scriptures and racism.


Six biblical facts

One: We are all created by God.


The human story begins in Genesis 1, where God “created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (v. 27). Every person is created intentionally by God in His own divine image. Thus, every person is sacred and equally valuable. Every form of racism, by definition, is to be rejected.


Two: We are all descended from the same human fleshly parents.


Every human being is descended from Adam and Eve ( Genesis 1:28 ). As a result, “The man called his wife’s name Eve because she was the mother of all living” ( Genesis 3:20 ).


As Scripture notes, the Lord “made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth” ( Acts 17:26 ). Because of the Flood, all of humanity can trace our ancestry to Noah as well (Genesis 9:1). There is No pure human blood in no group of people!!!.


Three: Every person is equally valuable to God.


As noted earlier, Apostle Paul stated boldly: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” ( Galatians 3:28 ). This at a time when many Jews considered Greeks to be unclean and inferior. Some claimed that God made Gentiles so there would be “firewood in hell.” Many refused even to look upon a Gentile in public. And may I add, there are No Blacks, Whites, Browns, Yellows, Reds, Ect in the Lord God Jesus Christ.


For their part, Gentiles persecuted the Jewish people across nearly their entire history. The Jews were enslaved by Egypt, attacked by Canaanites and other surrounding tribes, destroyed by Assyria, enslaved by Babylon, and ruled by Persia, Greece, and Rome. The Roman Empire destroyed their temple in AD 70 and disbanded their nation after the Bar Kochba revolt in AD 132–135. Nonetheless, Scripture teaches that “there is neither Jew nor Greek” in the eyes of God.


“There is neither slave nor free” was also a revolutionary claim. As we have seen, slavery was endemic in the first-century world. Many viewed slaves, especially those who came from foreign lands, as inferior to Romans.


“There is no male and female” was a radical statement as well. Romans considered women to be the possession of men. A female belonged to her father until she belonged to her husband. Women were either wives or concubines, with few rights of their own.


Galatians 3:28 sounds the clarion call that every form of racism known to Paul’s day was invalid and sinful. The God who made us all loves us all.


Brother Paul repeated his assertion to the Colossians: “There is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11).


To summarize: “God shows No Partiality” ( Acts 10:34 ). Get this, Churches Leaderships!!!.


Four: Each person is equally welcome to salvation in Christ.


God loves all sinners and wants all to come to faith in his Son: “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” ( Romans 5:8 ). Our Lord “is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance” ( 2 Peter 3:9 ).


As Elder Paul noted, God “desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” ( 1 Timothy 2:4 ). That’s why the Apostle could testify: “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” ( Romans 1:16 ). Are you Ashamed of your family of Color?


Our Father’s saving love is available to all: “There is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him” (Romans 10:12). His grace is universal: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Yeshua Jesus, should not perish but have eternal life” ( John 3:16 ).


When we trust in Christ, we become one people: “He himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility” (Ephesians 2:14). As a result, “In one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:13 ).


Jesus “is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world” ( 1 John 2:2 ). Apostle Peter told his fellow Jewish Christians that God “made no distinction between [Gentile Christians] and us, having cleansed their hearts by faith” ( Acts 15:9 ). As a result, we are to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). “Nations” translates ethnos, meaning people groups. We get “ethnicity” from this word. Every person of every ethnicity is to be brought to Christ through the ministry of the church.


Five: All people will be equally valuable in paradise.


John was given this vision of heaven: “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands” ( Revelation 7:9 ). Not the KKK white robes. But Jesus Christ righteousness White Robes!!!.


Six: We are to love all people unconditionally.


God’s word is blunt: “If you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors” (James 2:9). “Partiality” translates ( I found this word in my personal study, Prosopolempsia ), meaning to show favoritism or prejudice, to treat one person as inherently better than another. Such prejudice is “sin Jesus Church.”


God told His people: “You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt” ( Leviticus 19:34 ).


Jesus taught us: “Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 7:12). We are to “love your neighbor as yourself” ( Matthew 22:39 ), quoting (Leviticus 19:18). Do you love All people, nations, communities of color? If Not, forget about going to heaven.


Apostle Peter testified to the Gentiles who sought to hear the gospel: “You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or to visit anyone of another nation, but God has shown me that I should not call any person common or unclean” ( Acts 10:28 ).


Three common questions

One: What about the “mark of Cain many think they are black people or people of color”?


After Cain murdered his brother, God sentenced him to be “a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth” (Genesis 4:12). Cain protested that “I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me” (v. 14).


God replied, “Not so! If anyone kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold'” ( V. 15 ). Then, “the LORD put a mark on Cain, lest any who found him should attack him” (V. 15).


The Hebrew word translated “mark” is not, referring to a sign or token. It is used eighty times in the Old Testament; not once does it refer to skin color. Nonetheless, some have identified this “mark” with being black. Since Cain was cursed for his sin against his brother, it was claimed that those whose skin was black were his descendants and were cursed by God. This claim was used to justify the enslavement of Africans And the Indians, and Mexicans.


This line of reasoning is completely wrong. As noted, the “mark” of Cain had nothing to do with his skin color. In addition, Cain’s family line probably died in the Flood.


And note that Moses married a “Cushite woman” ( Numbers 12:1 ). Cush was a region south of Ethiopia; its people were known for their black skin ( Jeremiah 13:23 ). When Moses’ brother and sister spoke against him for marrying his Cushite wife, God rebuked them ( Numbers 12:4–15 ). Africa And, He Leaders And, People Must Repent To All of those you sold and, traded around the world, your children.


Clearly, the “mark of Cain” has nothing to do with black people, But we do know the ones who have hated, killed, stolen, rob people took their homeland, made slaves of their brothers and sisters, still carry racism in 2020 today in their hearts, and say they love God and on their way to heaven, But not All non-people of color doing this. We know. Thank you our loving, caring brothers and, sisters who are non-people of color, even though White is a color too. Amen.
