Incredible You - Part 4

The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth… FROM ONE MAN he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the WHOLE EARTH; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.
~Acts 17:24,26

We are all Different Shades of the Same Colour!

ALL Human's DNA is 99.8% the SAME!  There is only a 0.2% Difference Between any Two People.  ALL Humans Racial DNA is 99.988% the SAME.

We are all ONE skin colour: Melanin. It is a Brown pigment produced in the cells in our skin.  It is a SIN and a DISGRACE to DIVIDE BY RACE!


Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right." ~Acts 10:34-35 NIV

Take a look at some of the words that stand out in this verse:
  • Speaks
  • Now
  • Realize
  • True
  • God
  • Not-Show-Favouritism
  • Accepts
  • Every-Nation
  • One
  • Fear
  • Him
  • Jesus
  • Right
The word REALIZE means 'to fully understand'.  To NOT SHOW FAVOURITISM means to not have a prejudice or discrimination against anyone.  Prejudice and Discrimination is a Problem faced in EVERY GENERATION and NATION.
  • Prejudice is an ATTITUDE
  • Discrimination is an ACTION
There are 3 main roots that cause people to have racist thinking:
  1. PRIDE - thinking of oneself as superior to another            ~Romans 12:3
  2. FEAR - a feeling of intimidation
    ~1 John 4:18
  3. HATRED - a deep rooted feeling of ill will against another
    ~Numbers 12:1-16
Racism is NOT a matter of SKIN but a matter of SIN!

In Jesus Christ’s Family Tree there are mixed-race couples:
  1. Moses’ wife was Ethiopian ~Numbers 12:1
  2. Solomon had a black lover ~Song of Solomon 1:5,6
  3. Ruth was a Moabite ~Ruth 1:4, 4:13
  4. Rahab was a Canaanite ~Joshua 2:1, 6:25
