This book is not a book about races, even though race plays a part in the story. The God of the Bible not only claims responsibility for creating the races, but also His belief that before Him they are all equal. Scriptures categorically state, "But now you must also put off all these: anger, wrath,... put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all in all." Christ placed no conditions on the great commission.
This Author could care less what race the world says you are. Popular concepts of race are to a large degree based on myths. If the Arabs are from Ishmael, and the over twelve million Ashke-nazim Jews are descended from the Khazars as some Jewish historians validate, then these Aske-nazim Jews are derived from a combination of European blood overlaying the blood of a Mongolian tribe. This Mongolian tribe, the Khazars, claim Togarmah, a pagan person found in the Bible as their ancestor. Consequently, the majority of people called Jews would not even carry Semitic blood. The Arabs are known to be descended from Shem, hence Semites. Since the Jewish people are today the persecutors of the Arabs in the Middle East (at least by some Arab perceptions) that would make the Ashkenazim Jews the biggest anti-semites in the world.
At any rate, there are so many myths, so much intermarriage, and movement of peoples that the popular 'histories' of races should be tossed in the garbage. This Author believes that before our Creator there is no Jew, there is no
Gentile, there is no Greek, no German, no Negro, no Scythian.
8 For instance, Parade Magazine's Intelligence Report reports that 41 —that means 7 1/2% of the 540 Congressmen are Jewish. However, 35 Congressmen are listed "Unspecified", and Christian Scientists, Unitarians and other denominations may well contain Jews who do not belong to a Synagogue. Parade Magazine, Dec. 30, 1990, p. 20.
