Where did we get the different races?

Today's Question: Here is a question that I have often wondered about. It was brought up on a local T V Christian show this week, but I was not satisfied with the answer they gave, so let me hear what you have to say on this.

If Noah and his family were all that were saved from the flood, why are there so many different races here on earth?

A Brother in Christ

Bible Answer: The answer is not too complicated. The different races came after Noah's flood.

One of Noah's descendents was named Peleg. Genesis 10:25 says, "one was named Peleg, because in his time the earth was divided." All the continents were together until this time. Geologists confirm that the continents were all together at one time. When the continents divided, people were separated by oceans and mountains. They could not mate with each other and so various characteristics appeared. Skin became dark in the regions of the equator. Light skin appeared north where it was cool. And of course other characteristics have occurred during this period. This is where we get our races.

By the way there are only nine specific races: African, American Indian, Asian, Australian, European, Indian, Melanesian, Micronesian, and Polynesian. Since we have been able to come together there is now a mixture of different races.

Many racists try to prove that interracial marriages are wrong by saying that God forbade Israel from intermarrying people from other nations. Their argument only proves how wrong the racists are; because Jews are not a single separate race; they belong to the European race which is often called Caucasian. According to their faulty logic, people can only marry within their own nationality, not race.

Here is another thought: races are a result of mutation. Mutation is not the same as evolution. Natural evolutionists teach that it is possible for different species to cross mate. That's not true. The only mating which is possible is mating between the same species, and since different races can mate this proves that all human races are of the same species called the human race. All races are made in God's image.

As Paul said, "From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live" (Acts 17:26). Now under the new dispensation, God has called every nation and race of men to come together under the "Last Adam." Jesus Christ unites all the races together under the new creation.

John wrote: "After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands" (Rev 7:9). This is God's will for today--that every nation and race come together under the faith of Jesus Christ.
