MYSTERY OF THE AGES
not evil in itself. There had to be
wrong use
and
excess
in eating, drinking and marrying-the evil was
in the
manner,
and in
the extent
of eating, drinking and
marrying.
It could only be eating improper food, drinking
excessively of alcoholic drinks, revelings (Gal. 5:21),
rioting, violence. Marrying, to be evil, had to be as in
Genesis 6:2, when men "took them wives of all which
they
chose." There was rampant and universal
interracial marriage-so exceedingly universal that
Noah, only,
was unblemished or perfect in his
generations-his ancestry. He was of the original white
strain.
It
is amply evident that by the time of Noah there
were at least the three primary or major racial strains on
earth, the white, yellow and black, although interracial
marriage produced many racial mixtures.
God does not reveal in the Bible the precise origin
of the different races.
It
is evident that Adam and Eve
were created white. God's chosen nation Israel was
white. Jesus was white. But it is a fair conjecture that in
mother Eve were created ovaries containing the yellow
and black genes, as well as white, so that some of the
children of Adam and Eve gave rise to black, yellow, as
well as white.
The one man God chose to
PRESERVE
the human
race alive after the Flood was
perfect in his
generations-all
his ancestry back to Adam was of the
one strain, and undoubtedly that happened to be
white-not that white is in any sense superior.
If
you are a livestock breeder, planning to enter
your prize animals in a livestock show-perhaps at a
state or county fair-you will be sure to enter only
thoroughbred or pedigreed stock! Mixing the breed
alters the characteristics.
