ARE WE ASSOCIATED WITH THE GENEALOGY OF ADAM BUT NOT THE PROMISES GIVEN TO ABRAHAM
The Civil Writer Magazine
The underlying thought of a young Biblical mind is: Where are the Asians and Africans who were part of the mix multitudes in Exodus but were never present during the era of Adam, Noah, and Abraham? Ecletic people who should have been part of the chosen ones based upon the promise rather than the lineage. If they were not present for the promise, where were they?
How can Blacks be part of the lineage of Adam but be absent from the promise? While it is true that the Bible is not specific on race, further investigation into race will by no means harm the integrity of the Scriptures. Perhaps the author (Moses) or some unknown author saw people as God intended them to be seen—as the human race—therefore leaving color to the imagination. Perhaps the author excluded the Aborigines of Australia as well as Africans and Chinese because they were not part of the environment or they were not part of Adam’s genealogy. Then what do they stand to gain from scriptures not directed at them and having no promise.
