Adam was of the White Race It is quite apparent, by the authority of the Bible, that Adam was very unique and different among all the other types of people on earth. It was only Adam and his descendants that God had ever dwelt among or conversed with. It was only Adam and his descendants that God gave laws and commandments to. It was only Adam and his descendants that God brought judgment and punishment upon for disobedience to these commandments. And it is only Adam's lineage or genealogy that is covered throughout the Bible. Another unique aspect about Adam was his race. All Scriptural evidence indicates Adam was created a white man. Evidently the various "colored" types were created before Adam. The name "ADAM" (aw-dawm') in Hebrew means a "ruddy human being" (Strong's O.T. #120). It is derived from Strong's O.T. #119 - ADAM (aw-dam'), which means "to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy." Only the white race has the characteristic of blushing or showing blood in the face or skin. The attributes of skin color are described by one geneticist as follows: The color of normal human skin is due to the presence of three kinds of colored chemicals, or pigments. The most important of these pigments is melanin, a dark-brown substance... The second of the three pigments is carotene. This is a yellow substance which is present in carrots (from which it gets its name) and egg yokes as well as human skin... The third pigment is hemoglobin, which is the red coloring matter of blood...the hemoglobin occurs in the blood vessels beneath the skin, so that very little can show through.. The presence of fair amounts of either melanin or carotene in the skin covers it up completely. Hemoglobin does show up however in the skin of white men, particularly in those of light complexion. It is the hemoglobin that accounts for pink cheeks and the ability to blush. -William C. Boyd, Ph.D. 'Races and People' (1955) pp.43-45 Adam was fair and white which caused the hemoglobin (blood) to show in his skin making him look "ruddy" or to give him a "flush" look. Thus the word "ADAM" is a descriptive name but here indicates certain physical characteristics that the man Adam possessed. It is a common practice in both Hebrew and English languages to name something according to some outstanding feature or characteristic. We thus call a bird a "red-headed woodpecker" because it has a red head and pecks wood. Adam was evidently called or named "ADAM" because he possessed 'aw-dam' characteristics - that being of a ruddy or rosy complexion coming from the blood (hemoglobin) showing through his nonpigmented skin. This is what ADAM meant. These physical characteristics of 'aw-dam' are found only in the white race. People of a very fair complexion often appear as though they are reddish or sunburnt since the hemoglobin readily shows through their skin. This was the case with Adam. Eve also had these characteristics. That Adam and Eve were of the white race with this fair, ruddy or rosy complexion is verified in the Bible by the descriptions of their descendants. King David, who was one of Adam's direct descendants, was described as being "ruddy, and of fair countenance." (I Samuel 16:12 and 17:42) David's daughter Tamar was "fair." (2 Samuel 13:1) Sarah and REbekah, who were both descendant from Adam, were both described as being "very fair." (Genesis 12:11,14; Gen. 24:16; Gen. 26:7) The daughters of Job, one of the Adamic patriarchs, were known as the fairest women "in all the land." (Job 42:15) Solomon was described as being "white and ruddy." (Song of Solomon 5:10) The Nazarites (consecrated persons) of Judah were "whiter than milk" and "more ruddy in body than rubies" (Lam. 4:7) Adam thus was not the progenitor of the human races but rather only the progenitor of the white race - the Adamic race. Each race was a distinct and separate creations which would mean that each race is a distinct species of the Genus category 'Homo'. That Adam and Eve were of the white race with this fair, ruddy or rosy complexion is verified in the Bible by the descriptions of their descendants. King David, who was one of Adam's direct descendants, was described as being "ruddy, and of fair countenance." (I Samuel 16:12 and 17:42) David's daughter Tamar was "fair." (2 Samuel 13:1) Sarah and REbekah, who were both descendant from Adam, were both described as being "very fair." (Genesis 12:11,14; Gen. 24:16; Gen. 26:7) The daughters of Job, one of the Adamic patriarchs, were known as the fairest women "in all the land." (Job 42:15) Solomon was described as being "white and ruddy." (Song of Solomon 5:10) The Nazarites (consecrated persons) of Judah were "whiter than milk" and "more ruddy in body than rubies" (Lam. 4:7) Adam thus was not the progenitor of the human races but rather only the progenitor of the white race - the Adamic race. Each race was a distinct and separate creations which would mean that each race is a distinct species of the Genus category 'Homo'. COLOR IN SCRIPTURE It becomes self-evident that in nature certain colors represent or symbolize certain things and we can only conclude that this is the intent and plan of the Creator. Yellow, for example, is an alarming color and for a certain poisonous insect or snake to have some yellow coloration would make sense. Green represents vegetation and is symbolic of life or living things. The scheme of color was obviously by design and we perceive this in nature and refer to it as the natural order of things. Since color symbolizes and represents certain characteristics, qualities, attributes and features when used in nature (the works of God), it should be expected that Nature's God had likewise used the same principles of color characterization in His word. We know from Scripture that God created Adam white, being "ruddy" only because of the blood showing through his nonpigmented or colorless skin. Things that are nonpigmented or colorless are white - that is the actual meaning of white - "lacking color; colorless." (Websters New World Dictionary (1976), p.1621) The question is, why did God create Adam nonpigmented or white, while other types of man were pigmented brown, yellow, black, bronze, etc.? Scripture reveals that God had assigned a specific meaning and characteristic to white which is always used in a positive, Godly and honorable manner as follows: - White is used in Scripture to represent what is pure, holy and clean (Isa. 1:18; Dan 11:35; Dan 12:10; Psa. 51:7; Eccl. 9:8) - Jesus Christ was transfigured on the mount as being pure white (Matt. 17:2; Mark 9:3; Luke 9:29), and appeared to John as being white (Rev.1:14) denoting his eternity and wisdom, and was white as snow in prophecy (Dan. 7:9) - God's angels and the vesture of angelic beings are white (Matt. 28:3; Mark 16:5; John 20:12; Acts 1:10; Rev. 15:6) - The bride of Christ is "arrayed in fine linen, clean and white" (Revelations 19:8) - The "righteous" and those that "overcometh" are clothed in white (Dan. 12:10; Rev. 3:4-5; Rev. 6:11) - Those that are worthy to appear before Christ are in white robes (Rev.7:9), being made white by the blood of Christ (Rev. 7:13-14) - The throne of God is white (Rev. 20:11) and the 24 elders seated around the throne are in white (Rev. 4:4) God has assigned a significant meaning to "white" in Scripture which is always opposed from that which is colored or dark. The WHITE horse of Revelations 6:2 signifies victory, while the RED horse represents war (6:4), the BLACK horse signifies famine (6:5,6), and the PALE horse death (6:8). Christ and his armies are upon white horses (Rev. 19:11,14). We thus see white is represented as that which is Godly, pure, good and peaceful. Black, or some dark hue, is the symbol of disaster, mourning, or suffering (Job 3:5 & 30:30; Jer. 8:21 & 14:2; Lam. 4:8 & 5:10; Joel 2:6; Nah. 2:10.0 'Light' and 'Dark'. There is also significance in the words "light" and "dark" in Scripture which are symbolized as opposites (2 Cor. 6:14; Rom. 13:12). God's word is light (Psalms 119:105; 2 Cor. 4:4). Also, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (I John 1:5). Likewise Jesus Christ is referred to as Light (John 1:7). Consequently God's chosen people are referred to as the "children of light" (John 12:36; Luke 16:8; Eph. 5:8; 1 Thes. 5:5; Col. 1:12). Darkness is representative of evil, wickedness and corruption (Prov. 4:19; Isa. 8:22; John 3:19; Luke 11:34; Eph. 5:11; 6:12) and something the righteous seek to be delivered from (Ezk. 34:12; Col. 1:13 We can see that God had assigned an honorable, pure, good and Godly attribute to those things that are white or light in appearance. But those things that are evil, corrupted, or bring misery are represented as black, dark, or colored. Does it not logically follow that God would have created His supreme creation, Adam, and consequently His chosen people, "white" or "light" in appearance instead of colored black, yellow, copper, brown or some dark hue? In light of the meaning and symbology God used in Scripture it can only be deduced that God made Adam white- symbolizing something pure, holy and Godly. God certainly would not have made his chosen race dark or capable of "developing" into dark or colored types as the creationists and Christian churches believe and teach. IN THE IMAGE OF GOD The equalitarians, those who promote the "unity of man" concept, often state, in reference to Genesis 1:26-27, that "the Negro was created in God's image but carved in ebony." They thus maintain that the Negro has the same common origin, the same essential attributes, the same moral and spiritual character as the white man. However, the word "man" used in these verse is "ADAM" (aw-dawm'), thus indicating that God made the white, ruddy, Adamic race in His image. The word "image" used in Genesis 1:26-27 is the Hebrew word "TSELEM" (tseh'-lem), and it means "to shade," as being a "resemblance; hence a representative figure." (Strongs O.T. #6754) Thus the "image" here means something made or shaded in a resemblance or likeness of something else, as was the case when "God created man (ADAM) in his own image (TSELEM)" in Genesis 1:27. The word "shade" is often used to mean "similar," as in the phrase "shades of Rome," means similar or in "resemblance" to Rome. Adam was the shades of God, i.e., resembling God's image. We have seen that "white" represents certain things in Scripture. God created Adam white so as to resemble Himself in sort of a symbolic manner. God is represented as being white in the same manner He is represented as being male. This figurative concept was transmuted into God's literal and physical creation of Adam, who was created a white male. Adam was made white in the likeness or image of God, since all Godly things in Scripture are white or light in appearance. Some have claimed that Genesis 1:27 refers to the creation of the other races, but Genesis 5 makes it clear that only Adam was created in the image or likeness of God: 1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man (ADAM), in the likeness of God made he him; 2 Male and female created he them (Adam and Eve); and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. 3 And Adam lived hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in HIS OWN LIKENESS, AFTER HIS IMAGE (TSELEM); and called his name Seth. We see that these verses use some of the same language as used in Genesis 1:26-27 (also Gen. 9:6 - "for in the image (TSELEM) of God made he man (ADAM).") This clearly tells us that only Adam was made in the "likeness" of God just as only Seth was begotten in the likeness of Adam and "after his image." (Gen. 1,2 and 5 all talk about the same creation of Adam but with different words. To hold them as separate accounts causes great inconsistencies. This style of writing, which repeats a certain account differently, is also used in Gen. 7, which repeats the events of the Flood recorded in Gen. 6, and then proceeds in more detail). The Hebrew word translated as "likeness," "DEMUWTH" (O.T.#1823), also means "resemblance". Adam was also the "son of God" (Luke 3:38) just as Seth was the son of Adam (Gen 5:3). Thus, Adam was created in a type of comparable resemblance to God in a symbolic sense, which must of had something to do with Adam's physical and racial makeup. Adam was of the white race because God's color scheme in Scripture portrays Godly things only as white or light, never dark or colored. God's Chosen People The Bible does make some references to certain other races, sometimes designated as nations, families, or people. There is reference to the Syrians, the Hittites, the Libyans, the Edomites, Chaldeans, the Egyptians, etc., which existed at the time of Israel (the Hebrews). To these surrounding nations Israel was usally looked upon as just another race or nation. But to God they were very special and different. The Bible is a very racially oriented Book - oriented towards one race. It was written about and for one racial family line that descended from Adam. Only Adam's geneology is traced throughout the Bible. IT wasnot written in regards to other people or races. It no more traces the history of Neanderthal men than it does Chinese or Australians since it is a history book of only one man's family, that man is Adam. As stated in Genesis - "This is the book of the generations of Adam" (Gen. 5:1) Ten Generations from Adam came Noah and ten generations from Noah came Abraham. In Gen. 12, God blesses Abraham and promises to make him into a great nation. In Gen. 21 Isaac is born to Abraham's wife Sarah, and in Gen. 25, Isaac's wife, Rebekah, gives birth to Esau and Jacob. There in Gen 35:9-12, God appeared unto Jacob, changed his name to Israel, and reaffirmed the blessings he promised Abraham. From that point on the Bible concerns itself only with the white Adamic descendants of Israel. All of the prophets of God were of Israel. All of the laws, blessings, admonishments, covenants and prophesies pertain only to Israel. In other words, God specifically chose only one racial family - the white, Adamic, Israelite family - to be his people: "Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant: and Israel, WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN:...I will pour my spirt upon THY SEED, and my blessing upon THINE OFFSPRING." (Isa. 44:1-3, see also Isa 41:8-10) God chose only the Adamic-Israel race. His spirit and His blessings was prophesied to be only upon the racial descendants of Israel, not the descendants of Indians, Negroes or Malayans. God is referred to many times as "the Holy One of Israel," never as the Holy One of Syrians, Hittites, or Philistines. As hard as it is for some to accept, God chooses who He wants to be his people. In other words, God does the choosing and people have no say in the matter. As Christ stated: "You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you." (John 15:16) In the Old Test. God (Yehovah) has made it equally clear that He has chosen and acknowledges only one race of people: "For thou Israel art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS (RACES) THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH." (Deut. 14:2 & 7:6) "At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be THE GOD OF ALL THE FAMILIES OF ISRAEL, and they shall be my people." (Jer. 31:1, Jer. 31:33) "ONly the LORD had a delight in thy [Israel's] fathers to love them, and HE CHOSE THEIR SEED after them, EVEN YOU ABOVE ALL PEOPLE [races], AS IT IS THIS DAY." (DEUT. 10:15, also Deut 4:37) "YOU ONLY [ISRAEL] HAVE I KNOWN of all the families [races] of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities." (Amos 3:2) "And I will walk among you [Israel], and WILL BE YOUR GOD, and YOU SHALL BE MY PEOPLE." (LEv. 26:12) "He [the LORD God] sheweth his word UNTO JACOB, his statutes and his judgements unto Israel. HE HATH NOT DEALT SO WITH ANY NATION: and as for his judgements, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD." (Psalms 147:19,20) The Scriptures are quite clear that the God of the bible is not the God of all the races or "families" of man, rather He is only the God of the race of Israel whome He has "chosen for His own inheritance" (Psa. 33:12), and has chosen "for His peculiar treasure" (Psa 135:4). Only the Israel race is CHOSEN by God to be his SERVANT (1 Chron. 16:13). God clearly favors one race - the Israel race - over all other races that have existed on earth, past or present. The "SONS OF GOD" In Luke 3:38, Adam is referred to as the "son of God." Only the racial descendants of the Adamic family line through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are ever referred to as the "sons of God" or "children of God." Israel is identified as "the sons of the living God." (Hosea 1:10). God calls Israel his "son" (Isaiah 45:11, Exodus 4:22, Hosea 11:1) Christ refers to Israel as "the children of your Father which is in heaven" (matt 5:45). There thus exists a type of father-son relationship between God and Israelites. Christians are also referred to by this title. The Apostle John in writing to fellow Christian-Israelites states: "1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the SONS OF GOD: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. "2 Beloved, now *are we the sons of God*." (I John 3:1-2. Also Acts 17:29) In the letter ot the Philippians the Apostle Paul refers to his Christian supporters as the "sons of God" (Phil. 2:15). In Paul's letter to the Galatians, he informs them the reason Christ came to the world: "4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, "5 To redeem them that were under the law, THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE ADOPTION OF SONS. "6 And because YE ARE SONS, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." (Gal. 4:4-6) Christ came to redeem only those "that were under the law." Only Israel entered into an agreement at Mt. Sinai and thus only Israel was ever under the law. God implied that He would not "cast off all the seed of Israel" (Jer. 31:37,) and that they would be "scattered" but preserved and later "gathered" together (Amos 9:9; Ezk. 34:11-14). They were gathered together as was prophesied in Hosea 1 under one leader, being Christ. And Christ clearly declaired this purpose in Matt 15:24, "I was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and to them ALONE." Being "sons of God" is, however, more than a racial thing, it is a status that God bestows on certain persons (John 1:12-13, Rom 8:14). But there is nothing to indicate that anyone except those of Adam were chosen or "born of God" as sons. "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not, Beloved, now are we the sons of God." I John 3:1-2 You are not a son of God today, just because you are white. Israel was cast off because of her whoring after other Gods, the only way to be redeemed (bought back) is through His Son, Jesus Christ who paid the penalty for Israel's sins. We can again come back to the Father as "sons of God" by repentance and baptism into Christ's death (Romans 6). You are not saved by race, you are saved by grace. Only those who are humbled, repent and claim the gift through walking the "Way" of Christ all the way to His death, burial and ressurection can claim to be the "sons of God." Not being a son of God does not exclude a person from being able to come under God's grace. The Bible is also clear that other races can come to Christ and recieve the blessings and salvation...being a son of God only entails a superior RESPONSIBILITY, and does not make the white ADAMIC ISRAEL race superior to any other race. They are to be a servant race, a blessing to the world and all it's other people, the ministers of God's Word.
