One Human Race is what God Created! We all have been created in the image of God. We all descended of Adam and Eve. Then the flood wiped out everyone but Noah and his family. Noah’s sons started the world over again. So we are ALL related, we share the same genealogy background.
One Human Race
For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” God created us and He created us in His own image!
Even in Acts 17:26, it tells us that we are of one blood. “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,” One Blood, we all bleed red!
The word blood in Greek is αἷμα haima (hī’-mä). It means blood as in kindred or refers to the seat of life.1 #G129
- a person’s relatives collectively; kinfolk; kin.
- a group of persons related to another; family, tribe, or clan.
- relationship by birth or descent, or sometimes by marriage; kinship
Looking at that Lexicon for the word blood, you can say that One Blood is referring to One Kinfolk.
Racism is something humans made up. It comes from living in a sinful, falling world. But, if you truly love God, you will love everyone just like God loves everyone. We saw racism in Bible times too. The Jews and the Samaritans for example they despised each other. The Jews would walk around Samaria to avoid them. They didn’t talk to them or have anything to do with them. Remember Jesus didn’t see the “racial” barrier. He went to the woman at the well and talked to her. He talked to this woman and gave her the Living Water. He didn’t see race or any other form of discrimination. He saw a soul that needed to be saved.
Quotes on Race
- “We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race.” Kofi Annan, a Ghanaian Diplomat
- “Race is a social concept, not a scientific one.” Dr. Craig Venter, head of the Celera Genomics Corporation
- “We must come to the point where we realize the concept of race is a false one. There is only one race, the human race.” Dan Aykroyd, Canadian Comedian
What Scientist Say
Even in scientifically speaking, all human beings in the world today are classified as Homo sapiens. “Homo sapiens (Latin: “wise person”) is the binomial nomenclature (also known as the scientific name) for the only extant human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo.”3

Creation Museum and Ark Encounter
During my visit to the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter, they both have an exhibit that talks about the one human race and being created by God. It gives the scientific to this too. For example, all humans carries the same basic brown pigment called melanin in the skin. Another example they show we all carry Mitochondrial DNA. Plus the verses the two museums use are Genesis 3:20; Genesis 1:26-27; Acts 17:26; Genesis 2:7; John 3:16 – The image in this blog post are pictures of the posters at the exhibits at both locations.
