We must understand what the Bible says about Ethnic Groups. Some people do not understand that the Bible tells us that there will be different ethnic groups and what God expects from us.
Bible Verses that talk about the varying ethnic groups.
Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. God does not show any partiality to one ethnic group or the other, and he certainly did not put these group on Earth to create chaos among ourself.
Genesis 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female. There is nothing in that passage that says one race must dominate another and enslave them and create superiority over any other ethnic group.
Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us. God created us all, and he told us that there should be no partition among his people. So it begs the question of why are there so much racism, bigotry and discontentment among us. Satan is the dividing force that has caused the suffering that we see on Earth.
Colossians 3:1 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all and in all. Even though there are different ethnic groups, God says his son is all. Our different ethnic groups do not forbid us the protection of the living God.
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lord your God is God of gods, Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward. We are one in the eyes of God, and we should not allow human-made racism to destroy our spirits.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, you do well.
James 2:4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? The beginning of racism, sexism, bigotry and other human behaviour gives rise to this scripture.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what that good is, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Within the ethnic groups, where did hatred, racism originate
Racism is from Satan and his demonic forces. The Devil uses racism to divide the people, and by doing so, he can try and destroy God’s creation, which is why the Bible warns us to be vigilant and do not ignore the power of racism. But the power of God is greater than the forces of evil, even the evil of racism, because greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.
Racism is more than a social problem. It is a sin, a moral and spiritual issue. Racism is a sin because it prevents Christians who harbour it in their attitudes and actions from obeying christ’s command to love our neighbour, and our neighbour is any other human being. Racism is also a sin because it has its roots in pride and arrogance. Proverbs 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention but with the well-advised is wisdom. this sin originated in Lucifer’s desire to elevate himself
above the throne of God.
