Racism…Is it Fixable?
Pastor Mark Jenkins, speaking
Where does this idea of racism originate if God only created ONE race (‘adam’)—the Hebrew word for human being or mankind? This word is also translated “to be red or ruddy”, referring to the ruddy color of human skin. So if God only created one race, the human race, the pinnacle of His creation, would not the practice of “racism” actually be a practice of self-hatred or self-deprecation? In a society divided by color of skin, accent, ideology, cultural customs, and even team pride where does one find any true unifying identity? What can the Bible teach us that can help us draw this one (‘adam’) race together in true harmony?
