The Only Answer to Racism

A Biblical View of “Race”

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, Ark Encounter, and Creation Museum.


We hear a lot these days about racial tensions and acts of racism in America. How should the church approach this issue? Well, let’s see what the Bible says.

Genesis makes it clear we’re all descended from Adam and Eve. We’re “one blood,” as the book of Acts puts it. That means we’re all one biological race. It also means we’ve all inherited Adam’s sin nature. That’s why we all sin and will all die.

But the good news is that Jesus Christ, the God-man, stepped into history as Adam’s descendant—our relative. He took our penalty of death for us, so we could be forgiven and have eternal life.

So every human has the same problem—sin—and the same solution—Jesus Christ!
