"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    The End of Racism

    Question: How many “races” are there in the world?

    What is the Answer?: One? Four? Six? More than six?

    And where the rubber meets the road.... What if a Chinese person were to marry a Polynesian, or an African with black skin were to marry a Japanese, or a person from India were to marry a person from America with white skin—would these marriages be in accord with biblical principles? A significant number of Christians would claim that such “interracial” marriages directly violate God’s principles in the Bible and should not be allowed. Does the Word of God really condemn the marriages mentioned above? Is there ultimately any such thing as interracial marriage?

    Properly understood, the Biblical account of our origins found in the book of Genesis provides the basis for the end of all racism. More here. - JS

    Being from south Ga., I have been steeped in prejudise from an early age.
    I like the way you laid the questions out in the begining of your article. It seems the most segregated
    time of the week has been Sunday morning, sad to say.
