In Part 1 we looked at the reason why there is only one race, and how that helps us understand the sin of racism. All men today, despite skin tone, are from one race descending from Adam and Eve. Every human is created from one blood. We said that because Adam and Eve were created… Continue reading The Gospel and the Sin of Racism: Where Races are Ideologically Divided (Part 2)
Racism is a deep discussion which cannot be addressed quickly. Even as I intend to break this up into several segments, we need to understand that much of this is just the tip of the iceberg. My goal for this series is not to affirm certain political stances or groups, but the Gospel of Jesus… Continue reading The Gospel and the Sin of Racism: Created Perfectly as One Race (Part 1)
