Any descendant of Adam can be saved, because our mutual relative by blood (Jesus Christ) died and rose again.But some people think there must be different “races” of people because there appear to be major differences between various groups, such as skin colour and eye shape.
Some Christians point to this event in an attempt to provide a basis for their arguments against so-called “inter-racial” marriage.
Some even say that the word race should be abandoned because it’s meaningless.”7 The article went on to say that “we accept the idea of race because it’s a convenient way of putting people into broad categories, frequently to suppress them—the most hideous example was provided by Hitler’s Germany.
And racial prejudice remains common throughout the world.”8 In an article in the summer issue of the Journal of Counseling and Development,9 researchers argue that the term “race” is basically so meaningless that it should be discarded.
Darwinian evolution was (and still is) inherently a racist philosophy, teaching that different groups or “races” of people evolved at different times and rates, so some groups are more like their ape-like ancestors than others.
The Australian Aborigines, for instance, were considered the missing links between the ape-like ancestor and the rest of mankind.1 This resulted in terrible prejudices and injustices towards the Australian Aborigines.2 The leading evolutionary spokesperson, Stephen Jay Gould, stated that “Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1859, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.”3 Racist attitudes fueled by evolutionary thinking were largely responsible for an African pygmy being displayed, along with an orangutan, in a cage in the Bronx zoo.4 As a result of Darwinian evolution, many people started thinking in terms of the different people groups around the world representing different “races,” but within the context of evolutionary philosophy.
In the 1800s, before Darwinian evolution was popularized, most people, when talking about “races,” would be referring to such groups as the “English race,” “Irish race,” and so on.
However, this all changed in 1859, when Charles Darwin published his book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.
But does the Word of God really condemn such mixes as those above?
Is there ultimately any such thing as “inter-racial marriage”?
Personally, because of the influences of Darwinian evolution and the resulting prejudices, I believe everyone (and especially Christians) should abandon the term “race(s).” We could refer instead to the different “people groups” around the world.
The Bible does not even use the word race in reference to people,10 but does describe all human beings as being of “” (1 Corinthians ), this is why the Gospel can be preached to all tribes and nations.
