Racism Is Sin – Curious Christian


If you want to know what the Bible has to say about racism and other types of discrimination, just search for words like “favouritism” and “partiality” and you will come across a lot more than sufficient.

Take into account for instance Deuteronomy 10:17-18 which says, “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the excellent God, mighty and great, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the lead to of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing amongst you, providing them meals and clothes.” There’s no space for racism right here in the law of Moses. Nor is the New Testament any much less insistent. In passages like Acts 10:34 and Romans two:11 we are explicitly told that “God does not show favouritism” and cares for foreigners each and every bit as substantially as the Hebrews.

Other types of discrimination, like classism, are also forbidden. Take into account James two:two-four exactly where we are told, “believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ have to not show favouritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine garments, and a poor man in filthy old garments also comes in. If you show specific consideration to the man wearing fine garments and say, ‘Here’s a excellent seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,’ have you not discriminated amongst yourselves and turn out to be judges with evil thoughts?” We are explicitly told this is evil.
