The Godless Myth of Racial Supremacy


Any doctrine that teaches the supremacy or superiority of any race over the others is unbiblical; therefore, from the father of lies.

I desist to name the races that certain misleaders have exorbitantly eulogized. I desist in order to protect them; for they are innocent and are not guilty of the racialism that is imposed upon them by a few misled speculators. And, though these speculators may point at some empirical data to sustain their argument, their induction is deductively invalidated by the revelation of Scriptures.

But, don't we continue to hear of claims to superiority in physical features, in strength, in intelligence, in skills, and in prowess? Some have resorted to genetic studies to investigate racial superiority; others have looked at socio-historical factors. Yet, if the conclusion based on empirical data proves the thesis that a particular race is superior, who but the devil could have aided such an antibiblical research? It is like the vast body of psychical empirical data that drives many to the conclusion that transmigration of souls is real and the Absolute God doesn't exist. Demonic lies!

One often hears interjections such as "These people are unbeatable; there is something about them.. They always bag the prizes!" However, if such interjections try to imply that nobody can be like "these people" because of their racial superiority, this view is absolutely evil.

The Bible clearly states that God created all humans on the face of the earth from one blood (Acts 17:26). He created humans in the very image and likeness of God (Gen.1:26). Also, God's love for the world is relentless. He loves everybody, be it Indian, Asian, Russian, Jew, African, or European. It may seem for some, for a while, that the Jews have precedence. But, the Jews were chosen because the Church was first chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. Christ's love for the Church was not racial. It goes beyond every human line of division. The Gospel of Christ is the Gospel about the One Man (Rom.5:15; Eph.2:15); it is the Gospel about Christ and the Church as One Flesh (Eph.5:31) and One Spirit (1Cor.6:17). How the Lord wishes us to be like the little children, who care nothing about all these racial differences!! The racial issue has no significance for them. For them all are one. Didn't He bring a child in the center when the very question of superiority arose? But, let us ask: Is anyone better apart from the grace of God that one has received?
For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? (1Co 4:7 NKJ)
If God made Solomon the wisest, it was not because he was a son of David, but because He asked for it. It is as simple as that. If God gave Nebuchadnezzar the kingdoms of the world, it was not because Nebuchadnezzar was greater (Wasn't he once punished for thinking of himself so?); it was because "the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men." (Dan 4:17)

The idea of racial supremacy does exist among people who do not know the Bible. However, it is a sin and a spot within the church when Christians evaluate the superiority or inferiority of any person based upon the color of his/her skin, the language that s/he speaks, the region s/he belongs to, or the race that s/he belongs to.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. (Eph 1:11-12 NIV)
