Race and Gender

God made all humans of one race because we are all children of Adam and Eve (“He has made of one blood every nation,” Acts 17:26). In a practical way differences in skin color are the same as differences in hair color or the color of our eyes. These things are different due to where we live and whom our ancesters married. These colors can change in a couple generations. Opposite of one race is the fact of two genders, male and female. (Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female,” Matthew 19:4). We cannot change those two, add to them nor subract from them. Every human being is born male or female to which any father standing in a delivery room can attest. But fallen man tries to multiply races and do away with genders. We try to divide by skin color of which there is really only one, but we will not admit to human genders of which there are only two. Like our attitudes about changing culture and inviolable nature, we find ourselves opposite of our Creator.
