the race lie

Graphic shows a race / ethnicity survey question with many options, including Black, White, Native American, Chinese, Korean, etc. In this case, “Other” has been selected and “Child of God *” has been entered below.

The asterisk reads: “* The idea of ‘race’ is a lie from the pit of hell. Straight up demonic. Its fruit is division. This is the opposite of ‘one in Christ.’ There is one race; the human race. Melanin is brown; you either have a little or a lot. If our Father is not a respecter of persons [Acts 10:34-35], He is certainly not a respecter of skin color. Since we don’t see it in Him, we’re not to see it in ourselves; we’re made in His image.”

I’m betting Adam and Eve were of one skin color, since they were of one flesh (Genesis 2:22). That means skin color variances–like other environmental adaptations–came after the Fall.

The notion of different races is a demonic construct. We’re all born out of the physical lineage of Adam and Noah (Luke 3:23-38), and believers are born again into spiritual adoption through Jesus Christ, by faith (Romans 8:14-17). This is not to say we are all the same. Some are hands, feet, mouths, etc. (1 Corinthians 12:12-26).

Let’s get our eyes off our skin and get our eyes on Him.
