Q:

I grew up believing that my race was superior to every other race, and the reason (I was taught) was because that's what the Bible teaches. Does it? If so, then I don't want anything to do with your faith.


A:

No, this is not what the Bible teaches. In fact, the Bible teaches exactly the opposite, because it tells us that God created every race equally in His image, and He loves every race equally. The Bible says, “From one man he made all the nations. … We are God’s offspring” (Acts 17:26, 29).

It’s true that some have tried to use the Bible to justify racism. You may have heard, for example, that God supposedly put a curse on Ham (one of Noah’s three sons), some of whose descendants eventually migrated to Africa. But nothing could be farther from the truth. God actually was warning about the future of one of Ham’s sons, Canaan, who became the founder of some of the peoples in the ancient Middle East (See Genesis 9:24-27; 10:15.)

Racism of any type is wrong in God’s eyes, and it should be wrong in our hearts and minds as well. God’s love is not restricted to one group or one race—and neither should ours. When Jesus went to the cross, He gave His life for people from all races and all backgrounds. And some day in Heaven we’ll join with all those for whom Christ died, “from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9).

Don’t let the errors of a few keep you from Christ. God loves you—and the most important step you can ever take is to respond to His love by committing your life to Jesus Christ. Open your heart and life to His love today.

    Act 17:26 And 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;
    The word “race” found only (4 times) in the KJV Bible. However, there are six nations, 195 nations on planet earth. God created only one earth one Human Race it began with ADAM and EVE.
    Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
    Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior .many years ago. I was brought up in a Southern Baptist Church and was always taught that God loves ALL of us. And I attended Christian church’s other than Southern Baptist and was taught the same thing. I have not always been mature in my Christian faith, but I ask God every day to help me to be what he wants me to be.

    I read the comments of the man that said he had been taught his race was superior. I think he needs to really study the Bible and use some Bible studies to help him and ask God help him to understand the Bible and as God to fill him with the Holy Spirit.

    From what he said I could tell he has not studied the Bible. The has picked out bits & pieces of the Bible.
