What Does the Bible Say about Racism?

First of all we must realize there is only one race, the human race. We are all created by God. In the Book of Genesis 1:27, God created man and woman in his own divine image. God makes no distinction between the inherent value of one race or ethnicity over another, because He cares how we treat one another.

Galatians 3:28 states, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

We are not born hating one another because of our skin color, our ancestors or religion. Instead people learn to hate. Quote from Nelson Mandela,“ No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

The Bible clearly condemns all form of racism and views every person as equally valuable. The Book of Acts 10:34 states, God shows no partiality. God brings peace where there was once strife, and kindness where there was once animosity.

Overall, Jesus commands us to love one another as He loves us John 13:34, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
