Is there a simple solution to racism?
The solution really is simple. If people in every culture accepted the history of the world according to the Bible, and built their thinking on God’s Word, then racism would disappear.
But because we live in a world where the majority of people reject God’s Word, then the problem is not going to be solved.
Nonetheless, Christians everywhere should be shouting from the hilltops that we do have the solution. You see, the Bible teaches that all people are of one blood. In reality, there’s only one race of people—descendants of Adam and Eve—there aren’t different races.
Today’s various people groups and cultures came about as a result of God giving different languages at the time of the Tower of Babel. This would have caused different peoples to go in different directions and to different environments, thus developing the various groups.
Genesis also tells us about the origin of sin. All people have this problem, all need the solution of trusting Jesus Christ and conforming their thinking to His teachings. If everyone accepted this, there would be absolutely no racism!
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. (Acts 17: 26–27)
