Adamic Race(s)

February 25, 2023

Do we really all come from Adam?  The majority of so-called Evangelical Christians believe that nonsense.  The reason that it is pure nonsense, is that people have forgotten about basic biology.

First, according to Genesis 1:27, God created them male and female.  Now, I know that that is not a very popular statement in today’s society, but if you are anything else, you have a mental problem that needs to be addressed immediately!  Not to be crude, but look at what you were born with, and adapt accordingly!

Second, in Genesis 1 in the Septuagint, the phrase, according to kind, is used 8 times, and the phrase, according to their kind(s), is used 3 times, and the phrases, according to likeness/after a likeness, are used 3 times.  God uses these phrases 14 times, so it must be very important to keep things according to kind, NOT adulterated.

According to Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language,[1] the Latin word, adultero, from which we get our English word, adulterate, means, mixed, to corrupt, debase, or make impure by an admixture of baser materials.  According to Oxford’s Dictionary of English Etymology,[2] the word, adulterate, means to debase, corrupt.   So, is this the meaning of the Seventh Commandment, Thou shalt not commit adultery (Exodus 20:14)?  Think about it for a moment, why would YAHWEH also command, Thou shalt not covet … if the meanings were the same?

Third, according to 1 Corinthians 14:33, For God is NOT a God of confusion, but of peace.

Fourth, according to Malachi 3:6a, Because I the LORD am your God and change not;

Fifth, according to Hebrews 13:9a, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Sixth, according to Genesis 5:1a, This is the book of the generations of Adam.

So, what does the name, Adam, mean?  According to The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of The Bible, the word, Adam, comes from Strong’s #H119, which means, to show blood in the face; flush or turn rosy; be red (ruddy).  For example, according to 1 Samuel 16:12: So, he [Samuel] sent for him [David].  Now he [David] was of a ruddy complexion, with beautiful eyes, and comely in appearance to the Lord, and the Lord said to Samuel, Arise and anoint David, for he is good.

In other words, this is the Book of the Caucasian Race.  Can any other race come from Adam, if YAHWEH is perfect and changes not, and Jesus Christ agrees?  According to Hebrews 2:16-18, For He indeed doth not take hold of angels, but taketh hold of the seed of Abraham, whence it behooved Him to be made like His brethren in all things; that He might be a merciful and faithful chief priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people [Israel].  For by what He Himself suffered when He was tried, He can help them who are tried.

Please remember that there has always been a mixed multitude following Israel, but in the end, YAHWEH separated Israel from the other nations.
