First a couple facts from scripture. God made everything. There is nothing that exists that does not have it’s source from God, John 1:3. God created all the races. Scripture does not directly address this however due to a poor choice of wording in Genesis chapter one it is not so obvious.
The Hebrew word chay, H2416, is a general word that means life and living. In the KJV in Genesis 1:24 it is translated as living and beasts. In Genesis 3:20 it refers to the children of the Eve from the garden. It is translated living and life quite often. So the point here is that in Genesis chapter one God created living beings, some who could walk on two legs, reason and talk, and this meaning may have been obscured by the translators choice of the word beast.
God created everything and then said it was good. God did not say or imply equality among men or the races. The US constitution states that “all men are created equal”, but one must consider that the framers and signers of the constitution owned slaves and using their own words limited that equality to “our progeny”.
God created everything and then said it was good. It was good until man messed it up. The Book of Jasher, recommended reading by scripture, tells us a bit more detail about the reason for the flood at the time of Noah.
“..and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.” Jasher 4:18
Men and animals were being corrupted from God’s original perfect and good creation by admixture, by miscegenation. So why was Noah preserved? After God said that he would destroy those in the land this is what scripture says about Noah.
“But Noah found grace in the eyes of Yahweh. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations , and Noah walked with God.” Genesis 6:8-9
Noah’s lineage was perfect. Noah did not practice admixture. In the older Hebrew texts the word found for generations means descent, that is, family; (figuratively) history. However even the word generations has a root meaning that includes only one group of people or family.
A couple other details to consider. The actual meaning of the word bastard has changed over the years. In scripture the meaning is not “one born out of wedlock”. Rather the meaning in the Hebrew is mongrel. When one takes that along with the seventh commandment Hebrew word meaning of adultery, adulteration, mixing and yes the meaning includes miscegenation, then the meaning of all of this becomes rather clear.
God created everything and then said it was good. God created all the races and said that they were good. God made what he made for his own purpose.
“But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed ask him who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?”
Or hasn’t the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel for honor, and another for dishonor?” Romans 9:20-21
If one can get past their political correctness arrogance and let God be God, then one must admit that it is truly his choice to create, make and design as he sees fit. Who are we to question? So with all the political correctness training that has invaded the church one might then find it interesting that the above is even in the scripture. The fact that God made the races makes God a racist in the eyes of men. Either God is a racist or he is Righteous. God does not make arbitrary law. He has a reason for everything and this is only a part of the story. For a bit more click this link to read another aspect that you may have missed in scripture.
