Gen. 1: 26-28 (NIT) Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth." If we are truly created in His image, why and where in this world did racism become an issue? Is it a result of man's sin? Because I don't believe God intended for any of us to be at each other's throats for the color of our skin, or where our ancestors were originally located. Maybe racism came as a result of science. The kind of scince where mankind decided to place tags on people based on their origins. According to this link, (http://chestofbooks.com/reference/A...e-Human-Races.html#.VKy4Ts-09j0#ixzz3O6iUIm5a) there are Five Human Races - Ethnologists have generally divided human beings into five distinct classes, but then they wittle that down to Black (Negro), Red (Indian) and White (Caucasian). If we believe the scripture, are we not all made by the hand of God, as one in His image? I'd like some honest debate on this and not mud slinging, or baiting. How can we claim to be created by God, in His image, yet hold to three of five race classifications? Could it be one more effort of the devil to separate mankind not only from God but from truly being one? At least in heaven, the colors that cause friction, here, will be put to rest as we all have new, everlasting bodies.
