How Many Races of People are there?

We either believe God’s story of creation or we don’t. I believe God’s Word so the stories in it are easy for me to accept. Having faith that the Bible is true makes Christianity less complicated. God said it. God did it. That settles it and I believe it.

God created the first humans, Adam and Eve. From them came all the people on earth, today and throughout history. How do we account for so many different nationalities, skin tones, and features.

What if Adam and Eve carried all the recessive genes in their chemical makeup for all shades of skin and specific features of nationalities?

God is omniscient and omnipresent and might have done this.

In many regions without outside intervention the survival of the fittest ruled. What if people, with the dominant genes necessary to live in exceedingly hot or cold environments, were the only ones who reproduced in that area, so that group of people survived with unique traits making them appear different? Could this have happened?

Envision the diverse people who live on earth today all coming from Adam and Eve. All these different nationalities are one race, the human race.

Genesis 1:2-27 “God said, Let us make man in our image after our likeness.” … So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female.”

Maybe that “other” on government forms means   “human race.”

One people, all created by God

One race, the human race.
