The Evil Of Racism

"Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our [see The Father and The Logos] image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." So God created man in His Own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Genesis 1:26-27 RSV) (see The Seven Days Of Creation)

Nazi Flag Whoever you are, wherever you are, you are a descendant of Adam and Eve, who were created by God, in God's Own image. Humans, all humans, are God's children.

Racism is a form of wicked behavior that is based on differences of religion, national origin, color of skin, or other things. In one of the most bizarre and blasphemous misuses of God's Holy Bible, some have even used certain Scriptures to support their racist objectives.

When Jesus Christ, as a Jew, taught the Samaritan woman (John 4:4-26), He didn't care that she was a Samaritan, or a woman, since The Messiah, as the Son of God, was neither a racist, or a male chauvanist. The Lord taught the woman because she was one of God's children.

When Philip, as a Christian, baptized the man from Ethiopia (Acts 8:26-39), he didn't care that the man's skin was black, because Philip, as a true servant of God, was not a racist. He baptized the man because the man was one of God's children.

Anyone who thinks that Christianity (see Christian Living), or The Bible is about favoritism or superiority, or in any way justifies hatred toward other people, should carefully consider these Scriptures:

  • "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise." (Galatians 3:28-29 RSV)

  • "And Peter opened his mouth and said: "Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him." (Acts 10:34-35 RSV)

  • "He who says he is in the light and hates his brother is in the darkness still. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and in it there is no cause for stumbling. But he who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes." (1 John 2:9-11 RSV)

  • "If you really fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well. But if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors." (James 2:8-9 RSV)
