The Bible makes it clear that all human life began with Adam and Eve. They were created as a single race in the image of God and were commanded to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28). This original race then split into different peoples and nations which gradually developed their own unique characteristics and skin tones. As Genesis 10:5 states, “By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” It is important to remember that all human beings have the same spiritual needs and deserve respect regardless of their differences. We are all made in the image of God and part of His family.
