Scripture Reading: Psalms 105:6-11
In the Answers in Genesis’ book, “One Race, One Blood,” written by Ken Ham, a white, and Charles Ware, a black man in 2010, it makes the statement: “Marriage is a litmus test for racism, usually revealing what we really believe about those from other people groups—and there are a significant number of Christians (particularly in America) who would claim that such ‘interracial’ marriages directly violate God’s principles in the Bible, and should not be allowed” page 124.
This book says that if you are against interracial dating and interracial marriage then you are a racist and fail the litmus test of the bible.
Universal theologians and churches have been spouting this similar lie for decades: All men are descended from the same person. They repeatedly teach that all people of today are descended from Noah; and since the entire world was supposedly destroyed by a world flood, they say that all people of today are also descended from Adam; for that was who Noah was descended from.
If this is true then that means that all people are related; and if all are related there is no restriction against miscegenation. There is no miscegenation—for there is only one race in the world.
It has happened in the current news with the head chef, Paula Deen. She went on the Today Show Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 and basically apologized to Matt Lauer for saying the word “Nigger” in the year 1986 at a bank robbery after a person put a gun to her head. Are you aware that Trevon Martin called the Hispanic Zimmerman right before his murder a “Nigger” and his last words referred to him as “A crazy ass cracker?”
But Paula Deen has lost many of her sponsors at this date; Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Walgreens, Ballantine Books, Target, Sears, Kmart, shopping network QVC, Novo Nordisk, Caesars Entertainment, Smithfield Foods and the Food Network but she maintains that she believes now and has always believed that “All people are created equal.” She added: “I have never hurt any person with the purpose of harming them.” And sobbing: “I am heart-broken.” And she added: “I’ve had wonderful support from Reverend (Jesse) Jackson.”
But the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show have accepted her apology. They said that the Show does not condone or believe in the use of derogatory slurs by anyone. I wonder if they would make an exception towards our views.
She is saying exactly what Answers in Genesis say in their heretical book, “ONE BLOOD, The Biblical Answer to Racism” written in 1999. This book is at the forefront of the lie that “We are all of one blood.” Why do the theologians of Answers in Genesis, it should be Answers in Genesis 1-11; and the vast majority of Bible scholars so want this “one blood” lie to be perpetuated?
Why do they emphasize the first eleven chapters of Genesis only; it is because chapter 12 begins the story of who received the covenants made by God. That is why! They don’t mention it all at. The most important part of the Bible, they ignore. For doesn’t it mean for whom God made a covenant that these people were His choice. Doesn’t this completely destroy their basic point of equality? God did not make a covenant with all “people groups.”
They ignore scriptures like Psalms 105:6-11:
“O ye seed [descendants] of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen [elect].
He is the LORD our [not everyone’s] God: his judgments are in all the earth.
He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant.”
He concludes this psalm with the following two verses that destroys their equality viewpoint:
“And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;
That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
Who does it say were given the lands of the heathen? Who does it say might observe his statutes and His Law? If the covenant people of God are equal with the heathen and they are treated equal, then what is this all about? God takes from the seven nations of the Canaanites their lives, homes, vineyards, orchards, farms and many of their businesses and gave them to the Israelites, His people.
And who does it say were to observe His statutes and keep His laws: The heathen or Israel, His covenant people; or both?
And what instructions did he give His people before they entered the land that He had given them?
Deuteronomy 7:1: “When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites (many of these were giants), and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites (many of these were giants), and the Jebusites (many of these were giants), seven nations greater and mightier than thou.
Who was LORD the God of: The Israelites or the heathen? Notice the word “thy” in this verse.
Deuteronomy 7:2: “And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shall make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:…”
The LORD thy God told Israel that they were to destroy the seven nations; they should show them no mercy. This is equal?
Deuteronomy 7:3: “Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.”
They are not to marry them! I will tell you what Answers in Genesis says about this after the next verse.
Deuteronomy 7:4: “For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.”
If you marry them, the married couple will serve other gods and the anger of the LORD will be kindled against whom? The person of the covenant seed! Not the heathen.
Answers in Genesis in One Blood, say on Page 91: “Rahab was a Canaanite. She came from an ungodly culture – descendants of Canaan, the son of Ham. Remember that Canaan was cursed because of his obvious rebellious nature.”
But Canaan wasn’t cursed because of what he had done—it was the result of what his father, Ham, had done. What his father did was have sexual relations with his own mother, which resulted in his son, Canaan, eventually marrying a descendant of Cain.
But Universalist Christians (?) don’t tell us why Rahab is a Canaanite. It is probably because she is living in a Canaanite city: Jericho. But her activities in the city indicate that she is not a traitor to her own people.
But then they continue with the following false statement: “Thus Rahab, a descendant of Ham [no scriptural proof], must have married an Israelite (descended from Shem)” One Race, One Blood, page 130; One Blood, page 91.
Answers in Genesis make this statement with no proof at all. This is important because it teaches interracial marriage is approved by God, if it is true. Plus it is incorrect for them to say that all Israelites are descended from Shem; for there are a lot of other people that are descended from Shem too. It is much more accurate to say that all Israelites are descendants from Jacob.
Genesis 11:10-32 gives the genealogy of Shem. He had five sons:
Arphaxad was one of five sons of Shem.
Salah was grandson of Shem.
Eber [Hebrews] was great-grandson of Shem.
Peleg was great-great-grandson of Shem.
Reu was great-great-great-great-grandson of Shem.
Serug was gggggrandson of Shem.
Nahor was ggggggrandson of Shem.
Terah was gggggggrandson of Shem.
Abram (Abraham) was ggggggggrandson of Shem.
Isaac was gggggggggrandson of Shem.
Jacob was ggggggggggrandson of Shem.
Israelites were the great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great- grandson of Shem.
Not all descendants from Shem are Israelites; in fact, very few. Muslins from Ishmael are descendants of Shem. Jews from Esau are descendants of Shem. Israelites are 11 great-grandsons of Shem. So who is anti-Semitic?
“Since this was clearly a union approved by God, it underlines the fact that the particular ‘people group’ she came from was irrelevant—what mattered was that she trusted in the true God of the Israelites” One Blood, page 91.
This is changed slightly in One Race, One Blood, page 130 (added words are highlighted and underlined): “Since this was clearly a union approved by God, it underlines the fact that the particular biological people group she came from was irrelevant—what mattered was that at a certain point in her life, she changed her spiritual race when she trusted in the true God of the Israelites.”
They (Answers in Genesis) added that she (Rahab) “changed her spiritual race at a certain point in her life,” but give no Scripture for this. For there isn’t any that tell of Rahab’s repenting. Plus they say that there are no races in the Bible, and then they say she changed her spiritual race!” No physical race, but a spiritual race? Are they saying that she changed to the spiritual seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob before the New Testament?
But that is the point; she couldn’t trust in the true God of the Israelites if she were a Canaanite. But they are saying that there are exemptions to what the LORD, the God of the Israelites, said. He didn’t say that they could marry any Canaanite who believed and trusted in Him, but he said not to marry ANY of them. Notice that He didn’t tell them to send missionaries to them and instruct them that if any Canaanite became saved, then they had His approval to marry them. Instead, He instructed that any who did marry a Canaanite was that their offspring were forever cursed. For this makes Him the God of the Israelites only.
At issue is their statement that Rahab, who lived in Jericho, was a Canaanite. This is an absolutely lie! This is the basis of their argument; if this is proven false, then their whole doctrine is proven false. The reasons that Answers in Genesis omitted:
- Rahab is mentioned in the “Hall of Fame Chapter of Faith.” It is found in Hebrews chapter 11. “By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace” (verse 31). No one can have faith unless the Holy Spirit gives them the faith. And faith is given only to His people, Israel.
If you look at Hebrews chapter 11, every other person mentioned was of the elected line of God’s people; from Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sara, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthae, David, Samuel, and the prophets; who subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens, women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea more-over of bond and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; and then is added, according to our enemies, Rahab the forbidden evil seed of a Canaanite? There is not any record of Rahab repenting. So, Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab represents the first fruits of God’s deliverance and God’s faithfulness in leading the two Israelite spies directly to her, a woman who would choose allegiance to Israel rather than the people of Jericho, though it was her home. The spies went to the only Canaanites in their whole history that would betray their people and be in favor of the God of the Israelites? So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Even as Lot (a pure Hebrew) dwelled among the peoples of various mixed origins, when he lived in Sodom; even as Abraham sojourned among the Canaanites; even as Ruth lived in the former land of the Moabites; and the men of David and his small band of men became a part of the Philistine army; in almost any city of the Old Testament, there were pure Hebrews or Israelites dwelling in such towns. Do you believe that in each city there were no other people of a different race? So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab knew the Holy Name of Yahweh: She states that name four times in Joshua 2:9-12:
“And she said unto the men, I know that the (1) LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the (2) LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the (3) LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the (4) LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token:….”
The word “LORD”, the word in all capitals means “Yahweh” in the Hebrew. So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab knew that God had given the Land of Canaan to the Israelites. The land of Canaan, not just the city of Jericho of which she was an inhabitant. How did she have this knowledge unless she was an Israelite? And how could she have guaranteed her whole family: her father and mother, and siblings would keep the vow of silence when she told them to come to her house. The only Canaanites who were traitors to their race where the people of Rahab’s family; about 7 out of 100,000 (?) in the city of Jericho or about 7 out of 10,000,000 (?) Canaanites. No, Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab would not have been given a place to dwell within Israel if she were a Canaanite. That would have been a violation of the very command of God at the very beginning of the time in which He commanded them to utterly destroy them all. So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab and her house were spared for a reason (they were Israelites). Preferential treatment of one family even as God saved only one adamic family from Sodom and preserved only one adamic family on the ark is certainly being a “respecter of persons.” Not all people are equal. So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab was not a whore or a prostitute or a harlot. A brief discussion of this point is that when she “…brought them [the spies] up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof” Joshua 2:6.
What would a harlot have been doing with “stalks of flax” on the roof? Prostitutes did not plant and reap and engage in industry; but innkeepers did: for they often served as supply centers like a general store, providing things travelers and people in the community needed. Rahab was an innkeeper. So, Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab was the recipient of the spies that were sent to her only. They knew that she was an Israelite before they left their camp. We are told that the two spies were to spy out the land; not interrogate some “harlot” inside Jericho’s walls and share with her their secret plans.
The Canaanites in general and the town of Jericho were in fear of the Israelites due to God’s mighty power that was with them. This was the report that the spies wanted to hear. Forty years earlier 10 of the 12 spies came back with disheartening news: “The giants are too big; we are like grasshoppers by comparison; let’s give up on this suicide mission and go back to Egypt.” This time the two spies had received the message that they wanted to hear. Joshua sent, had the encouraging, positive report that they needed to convince any weak-hearted Israelites: the Canaanites (including the giants) were already trembling in fear of Israel. So Rahab was an Israelite.
Have you ever said “I hate the sin, but not the sinner” thinking that you were quoting a Bible verse? But this is a quote from the Hindu revolutionary Gandhi, who found that he could achieve with cunning propaganda what he could not accomplish with force. Scripture reveals the opposite: God hates the sinner and the sin.
- “…Thou hatest all workers of iniquity” Psalm 5:5.
- “…God is angry with the wicked every day” Psalm 7:11.
- “…but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth” Psalm 11:5.
God hated the Canaanites then; God hates the Canaanites now. The Canaanites were tares and pigs. Tares never turn into wheat; pigs never turn into sheep; so Rahab would not turn into the covenant seed of God.
Misplaced human emotions and corrupt, canal “logic” are what gives rise to just about every false doctrine. Those who take the false doctrine of “loving the Canaanites instead of hating them” will eventually give way to even greater heresies, such as Ultimate Reconciliation. They falsely say that God loves everybody and will eventually reconcile everyone to Him. So, Rahab was an Israelite.
- Rahab had a scarlet cord to let the two spies down the wall of Jericho. This was the symbol of salvation and the possible symbol of Zerah’s red ribbon that was put on his hand during his birth of the tribe of Judah. So, Rahab was an Israelite.
- It makes a great deal of difference, whether Rahab was an Israelite or a Canaanite; because the two peoples are different. Which seed-line do you want to be from? The covenant seed or the seed which hates Jesus Christ, God the Father and God the Spirit? So Rahab was an Israelite.
- Was Rahab a Canaanite, as Answers in Genesis say, who was a traitor to her people; or was Rahab an Israelite; and spared from the destruction of Jericho. Rahab and her entire family were the only inhabitants from an innumerable number of Canaanites that Answers in Genesis can site as being in a state of faithfulness to Israel’s God. Rahab and her family were the only Canaanites given who Answers in Genesis shows were converted. Seven people out of an estimated 10,000,000?
What a confusing manner of logic would it be if Rahab and her immediate family was Canaanite? God said to destroy every one of them. A couple of weeks later the Gibeonites told Joshua that they were from a great distance away, and Joshua made a treaty with them. God made Israel keep this covenant with this branch of Canaanites although the Gibeonites were to be slaves to the Israelites. So Rahab was an Israelite.
Are All From One Blood?
Let’s look at what the Answer in Genesis’book says? On page 49 we find the following (with my emphases):
“The Bible does not even use the word ‘race’ in reference to people, but does describe all human beings as being of ‘one blood’ (Acts 17:26). This, of course, emphasizes that we are all related, for all humans are descendants of the first man Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45).”
Their basic thesis is that, as they say in their book, “There is only one race – the human race”, page 55. If this statement can be proven false, then the entire belief system built around it comes crumbling down.
Whom did Cain marry? Did he marry someone from his immediate family (his sister) or did he marry someone who was not related to him (from another race)?
So, they make the argument in page 19 that “There could not have been other women who were not her (Eve’s) descendants.
Thus, if Christians cannot defend that all humans (including Cain’s wife) can trace their ancestry ultimately to Adam and Eve, then how can they understand and explain the gospel? How can they justify sending missionaries to every tribe and nation? One needs to be able to answer the question of Cain’s wife to illustrate that Christians can defend the gospel and all that it teaches.”
They teach that Cain and his wife (from the land of Nod) built a large city. They argue the technological advances needed to build the city were there by quoting from Genesis 4 about the advances made by the descendants of Cain but ignore the number of people needed to live in the city, page 27.
They ignore the fact that who would marry Cain of Adam’s family; for they knew that he was guilty of the murder of Abel and that their God had put a punishment upon him. Who would be the wife of the murderer of their brother or close relative?
They also ignore Genesis 3:15 that instructs us about the enmity that would be between “her seed” (seed of the woman; Eve) and “thy seed” (seed of the serpent). They also ignore the argument that Cain is not descended from Adam. There are many Christians who believe that Cain was descended from the serpent, not Adam.
The biblical text used to “support” Answer in Genesis’ “theory” that we’re all related is found in Acts 17:26 where Paul says: “And hath made of one blood v 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.” KJV (King James Version).
Let’s look in our Bibles. Does anyone have a footnote next to the word “blood?” Mine, a King James Bible, has the footnote “v.” In the margin it says that “Some mss. [manuscripts] omit blood.” Most biblical scholars agree that the word “blood” does not appear in the original Greek!
Look at the translations from other Bibles:
- “And He made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth…” The word “blood” is omitted. (Revised Standard Version)
- “From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth…” The word “blood” is omitted. (New International Version)
- “And He made from one every nation of men to dwell upon all the face of the earth, appointing the times ordained and the boundaries of their settlements.…” The word “blood” is omitted. (Christogenea New Testament)
- “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.” The word “blood” is omitted. (Revised Standard Version, One Race, One Blood, page 125)
So, how can you build a doctrine from a scripture which most scholars, including now the Answers in Genesis scholars, say is missing the main word of your doctrine? In the majority of Bible manuscripts texts (over 400), the word “blood” is not there.
Did Answers in Genesis accept the meaning of what they quoted? That Acts 17:26 does not contain the word “blood?” Look at what they have in the same book on page 87:
“How different things might have been had these men simply believed the only source for all truth and that our common origin is from a wise and powerful Creator. They would have adopted a different, biblical philosophy for living together as one kind – just as we can, when we embrace the scientific and biblical reality that we are all ‘one blood.’”
“One Race, One Blood,” page 126; “When Christians legalistically impose non-biblical ideas as no ‘interracial’ marriage, they are helping to perpetuate prejudices that have often arisen from evolutionary influences. If we are really honest, in countries like America, the main reason some Christians forbid ‘interracial’ marriage’ is not scriptural. They forbid ‘interracial marriage’ because of preconceived prejudices.” They don’t give any of the preconceived prejudices that they base their beliefs on.
What Doctrine Does Answers in Genesis and the Others Ignore from the Holy Scriptures?
Answers in Genesis and the Judeo-Christian universal churches are completely ignorant or deliberately mistranslate Ephesians 2 and Ezekiel 37. They basically ignore Ezekiel 37 and completely mistranslate Ephesians 2. They both teach the same doctrine.
In Ephesians 2, who are the two that are made into one new man (verse 15)? Answers in Genesis, along with the Judeo-Christian world say that two groups of people are:
- the gentiles and
- the Jews
They are the two that means that the whole world is now made near by the blood of Christ (verse 13). For the gentiles were uncircumcised, aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, strangers form the covenants of promise, had no hope and were without God in the world (verse 12). The gentiles that were far off are now made near by the blood of Christ (verse 13). The gentiles are all people who are not jews.
The second group of people is the jews, who they say are the covenant people of God. The two, gentiles and jews, are now joined together by the death of Jesus Christ.
But this interpretation does not agree with Ezekiel 37. In this chapter in Ezekiel it tells of the joining of the two separate sticks of the Kingdom of Israel:
- The stick of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel and
- The stick of Judah.
The joining of the two parts of Israel!
Israel was divided into two parts? When did this occur? Shortly after the completion of the Temple of God that was built in Jerusalem. The ten tribes separated into a new northern kingdom of Israel from the tribes of Judah in the southern part of Israel. The northern kingdom became very similar to the United States of today. They refused to follow the laws of their God and went and served other gods. All of their kings, their laws, their priests were apostate and unqualified.
Eventually they were divorced by our God. They married other gods. So they were “without Christ (the anointed seed), being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). So, what happen to these ten tribes of Israel?
They and the House of Judah were reconciled together into one body by the cross, the two made into one once again. By the death of our Savior and brother—Jesus Christ, this was the gospel message.
The Jews claim to be from the tribe of Judah only; but they are really from the tribe of Esau. That leaves 12 other tribes of Israel! But that is only 7% of the modern jews today. The other 90+% are descended from Japheth—a Turkish people. They are known as the Ashkenazi Jews.
What Should a New Christian Read?
Answers in Genesis: “Just as a newborn baby grows physically, so now you need to grow spiritually. Read your Bible, starting perhaps with the Gospel of John, reading at least one chapter a day. Then read the first 11 chapters of the foundational Book of Genesis” page 119.
Let’s look at a few passages from the book of John that Answers in Genesis instructed us to read for us to grow spiritually:
“Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death” John 11:53.
Who were the people that were taken counsel together to put Jesus Christ to death?
“Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples” John 11:54.
Jesus would walk no more openly among the JEWS. He went to the wilderness were he continued with his disciples. Are the Jews and His people equal?
“Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him” John 11:57.
Both the chief priests and the Pharisees who were mainly Jews had given a commandment that if any man knew where Jesus Christ was, that he would show it to them that they might capture him. Do you think that the Jews and His people are equal?
“Then said the Jews unto him, Thou [Jesus Christ] art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by” John 8:57-59.
Who do these verses tell who was attempting to assassinate Jesus? The Jews. Are they equal with His covenant people?
“Then came the Jews round about him,…
Jesus answered them [the Jews]…
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep; as I said unto you.
“…I lay down my life for the sheep.”
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him” John 10:24, 25, 26, 15, 31.
Jesus got in another heated discussion with the Jews; and they attempted to stone him again. Doesn’t this chapter teach that Jesus Christ did not die for the jews. Are the Jews equal with His covenant people?
John 17:9 “I[Jesus Christ] pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.”
Jesus said that He was not praying for everyone. In fact, He was praying only for those who were given to him. What is the difference between the people who he is not praying for? Are they equal with His covenant people?
“When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him [Jesus Christ], crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him” John 19:6.
It was the Jews who cried out to Pilate to crucify Jesus Christ. Pilate admitted Jesus’ innocence and told them [the jews] to take Him and crucify Him yourselves. It was the Jews who crucified Jesus. Are the Jews equal with His covenant people?
“And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus” John 19:38.
The uncle of Jesus went to Pilate and asked him for permission to take down the body of Jesus from off the tree. But he went secretly. Why? For fear of the Jews. Are the Jews equal with His covenant people?
I think that these 7 verses are enough. There are many more in the Bible. Do the Christians have an enemy? Yes they do. The Jews have been evicted from every Christian nation in Eastern Europe; some as many as three times. The Bible identifies who they are.
Let’s look at a couple more of Answers in Genesis’ remarks in their book:
“According to the Bible, all people on earth today descended from Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives, and before that from Adam and Eve” page 51.
“So you can see how it is easily possible, beginning with two middle-brown parents, to get not only all the ‘colors,’ but also people groups with stable coloring” page 64.
“Noah and his family were probably mid-brown, with genes for both dark and light skin, because a medium skin ‘color’ would seem to be the most generally suitable (dark enough to protect against skin cancer, yet light enough to allow vitamin D production). As all the factors for skin ‘color’ were present in Adam and Eve, they would most likely have been mid-brown as well” page 67.
So, putting these three passages together we have a very strange belief. Adam and Eve were most likely mid-brown in color as well as Noah and his family. Mid-brown? If Adam and Eve were they only people on the earth then there were no other people besides mid-brown people for the time up to the time of Noah. All people on the earth are descended from mid-brown people. There were no blacks, no Orientals, no Hispanics, no Whites in existence at all at this time.
This can be very easily proved a lie. No Negroes, no Orientals, no Caucasians until at the most 4 ½ thousand years ago? Any unbiased historian can easily disprove this.
What are they trying to do? They then come to this conclusion:
“The Christian Church could greatly relieve the tensions over racism if only the leaders would teach that all people are descended from one man and woman and all people are equal before God. Furthermore, all are sinners in need of salvation; all need to build their thinking on God’s Word and judge all their cultural aspects accordingly; all need to be one in Christ and put an end to their rebellion against their Creator” page 96.
This is strictly Judeo-Christianity theology. The Bible teaches Israel to be a separate people. Multi-Culturalism is a communist/Hindu/ jewish doctrine and is in no way Christian.
Anwsers in Genesis: “FALSE CLAIM: NON-WHITE ‘RACES’ COME FROM ‘PRE-ADAMITES’” page 111. They must not have seen the book “PreAdamites?” or if they did, they don’t believe it. Some of the preAdamies in this former college book are:
This book was published in 1880 and was used in American colleges at the turn of the century. And who are the other races? Negroes, Orientals and all of the mixed-breeds that are in the world, who are these people?
There is even the Bible statement that no Ammonite or Moabite shall enter the assembly of the Lord; even to the tenth generation none belonging to them shall enter the assembly of the Lord forever.
The command wasn't, when you convert these heathen, and then you can marry them and bring them into your midst. They could never, not ever, bring these foreigners into their midst!
If there had been Chinese in the surrounding area, you would see Chinese on the list. If there had been Nubians in the surrounding area, you would see Nubians on the list. If there were Eskimos in the surrounding area, you would see Eskimos on the list.
THE ISRAELITES WERE NOT TO MARRY WITH THOSE WHO WERE NOT THEIR KIND
Notice that God says these nations were greater and mightier than the Israelites. Israel had about two million people (600,000 fighting men plus the women, children and elderly), that means that there were a lot of heathen for the Israelites to destroy. On the flip side, that means that there were a lot of heathen to tempt the Israelites.
In verse three of Deuteronomy 7, God specifically tells the Israelites not to make marriages with these heathens. Now, there are those, people whose world view is not God's world view, who will tell you that the only reason why God told the Israelites not to marry the heathens is because they "would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods." (Verse 4) These same people with their own world view will tell you that as long as the Israelites converted these heathens, then it was okay to marry them.
Can you find that in the Word of God? Furthermore, then why was a sin in Nehemiah to have married these very same people? Nehemiah expanded and applied the prohibition to preclude all forbidden foreigners (Nehemiah 13:1-30).
The Prophet Hosea rebuked the House of Israel for going against the command of God and bearing strange children:
Hosea 5:7“They have dealt treacherously against God: for they have begotten strange children.”
The word "strange" is from the Hebrew word "zuwr" and means a primary root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence, to be a foreign, strange, and profane.
Can God be any clearer? God never intended His people, created in His image, to mix. God calls this treachery against Him.
There is a lot more. But this should be enough for you to understand the danger of “One Blood—The Biblical Answer to Racism.” What do the enemies of Christendom say is politically correct: Let us intermarry until we are all of the mid-brown mongrel race. Then there will be no wars and disagreements over skin color.
What does our God say about this plan? God has chosen His people and made covenants with them. He instructed them to be a separate people and not to integrate with any other people. He will not permit this to happen. Israel will not be totally destroyed.
Do you believe our God or man?
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
