tonight we are going to be looking at the question can the bible explain the origin of the races and the answer is no the bible cannot explain the origin of the races but only because according to biblical doctrine the question is a fallacious question the question implies that there are different races to explain the bible is very clear though both in genesis and in the book of acts acts chapter 17 that there is only one race the human race or more theologically we
00:37
would call it the adamic race those who are descendants of the first man made in the image of god adam as paul wrote in acts chapter 17 god that made the world hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth so if we are indeed all descended from the same original parents adam and eve only over a bit over 6 000 years at the most then we are all distant cousins at this point we all trace our ancestry back to the same ultimate great grandfathers
01:07
both in noah and ultimately in adam so we're all in the same bloodline we're all able to lay claimed being made in the image of god because we are the uh offspring of the one whom god said was made in the image of god and that is the basis of our intrinsic value that even in our fallen sinful state that god considered us important enough and valuable enough that he would pay a king's ransom in the blood of the creator himself jesus christ to ransom us back because he gave us that infinite value
01:39
making us in his own image at the very beginning now then uh whenever i bring this up inevitably someone brings up the old canard well where did king get his wife you know the bible talks about cain abel and seth doesn't mention any women and then it talks about kane going off with his wife and some people say well maybe aliens dropped her off and kane found her you know just all kinds of crazy things i don't think we have to get that extreme but some say maybe she was from a different tribe a different race or something like that but the bible does clearly say that adam
02:09
was the first man and eve is the mother of all living so every human being according to biblical doctrine are descendants of adam and eve there is no other race other than the adamic human race we have to realize of course that adam did not beget cain abel and seth only now these sons of adam were mentioned by name apparently because they were historically significant but undoubtedly adam had a lot more sons than that whose names were simply not mentioned because it was not historically important to do so and none of his daughters are mentioned
02:41
but he obviously must have had daughters i mean when god commanded adam and eve be fruitful multiply and fill the earth how can they and their offspring fulfill that promise or that uh that uh command if there aren't women there to procreate with so obviously god intended for that to be the case in genesis 5 4 it informs us that in the days of adam after he had fathered seth were 800 years oh and by the way he did father sons and daughters not just sons just because none of the daughters are mentioned by name does not mean that they did not exist
03:12
so that brings up the question then if we're going to have the beginning of the human race from one fountainhead from adam himself the progenitor of the human race if the race fell in adam then god could potentially save the entire fallen race by providing a second or last adam jesus christ the creator who came in in his obedience and through his sacrifice would restore all that was lost by the first adam so god had his plan in mind from the beginning and part of that plan was that we would all be
03:43
related to the first adam so that he could provide a second adam to be the progenitor of a new risen resurrected eternal race that we can be born into through the new birth through faith in jesus christ now in this regard people will say well you know didn't they have to marry close blood relatives back then if that's the case and how many children did adam and eve have anyway well josephus the first century jewish historian this is just jewish tradition it doesn't actually say this in the
04:15
bible but he said the number of adam's children as says the old tradition was 33 sons and 23 daughters well that's a lot of children i think probably there were more than that we know that noah was 500 years old you know when he had his sons shem and japheth so apparently they not only lived for centuries but were fertile for centuries and conceivably adam could have had hundreds of children there's really no reason not to believe so now they did have a lot of children and they did of course have to marry children had to marry children and
04:46
everything so you know at the beginning at least brothers and sisters had to marry and that brings up the question well can you marry your relation and the answer is yes so long as you marry a human remember we're all relatives we're all cousins we're all in the same bloodline we are all related through adam and noah so you cannot marry a human being that you're not related to at least as a distant cousin but then the question arises can you legally marry a close blood relative someone very close and
05:16
the answer is it's not legal now but it used to be as the bible informs us in romans chapter 4 verse 15 but where there is no law there is no transgression see at the beginning there was a positive law there was a negative law and a positive law there weren't very many laws at the beginning do not partake of the tree of knowledge good and evil one simple law yet thou shalt not but then there was and also a positive law thou shalt do this be fruitful multiply fill the earth and subdue it
05:47
so there was no law at that time that said you cannot marry a very close blood relation even a brother and sister marriage there was no law against that but on the contrary there was a law that said you must because in order to you know be fruitful multiply and fill the earth that would have to be done but why is it uh that it's not legal now because we have a problem today that simply did not exist at the beginning of the human race now at the time of adam and eve everything was perfect before the curse and the bondage of corruption and decay came on the whole
06:17
creation the human genome the human gene pool was pure at that time the reason we have civil law today forbidding close blood relatives especially brother-sister marriages is because we have a build-up of corruption in the human genome known as the human genetic load and according to biblical history it's been thousands of years of accumulated mistakes during dna replication and as a result we all have defects i think with the human genome project they found out there's over 6 000 known defects
06:48
in the human genome now so they didn't have that at the beginning everything was pure and pristine today if you marry a close blood relation you're very likely especially with a brother sister marriage you're very likely to have defects because of the similarities in the genetics within the nuclear family you're likely to have defects in both parents on the same gene for the same trait now usually if you marry outside of your family you still marry a relation because we're all relatives we're all cousins but if you don't marry a very close blood relation you marry outside of your
07:19
family it's much less likely that you'll have the similarity in genetics that would allow genes matching up for the same trait that are both defective usually you might inherit a gene from one parent that's defective but the other parent happens to have a gene for that trait that is not defective and the good gene tends to mask and diminish the impact of the bad gene which means that we don't turn out nearly so bad as we could but when you have close blood relation marriages it's much much greater probability of having these bad
07:50
genes match up on the same traits and being fully expressed in the offspring usually as terrible deformity or disease and that's why we have law against it today but at the beginning there was no need for such a law the human gene pool was pure it was god's will that the whole human race would spring from the one atom the one bloodline of the first adam made the image of god and therefore we find that sin and the curse came in you know shortly after the creation bringing the bondage of corruption and decay which affects
08:20
everything including information any system including the human genetic system that copies information will inevitably fall prey to the effects of the second law of thermodynamics there's always mistakes and degradation that takes place over time nonetheless even with the buildup of mutations over time we find that close intermarriage was normal and legal for about two and a half millennia from the beginning the dna apparently was still good enough it wasn't until the time of moses
08:51
two and a half millennia later after the time of adam and eve and the law given in leviticus 18 that god finally gives his law against close intermarriage and again i believe because he knew about this thing that we have you know discovered in the 20th and 21st century the buildup of the human genetic load god of course would have known about that himself long time ago prior to that time for example you know abraham married his half-sister sarah today that would not be lawful and it would be dangerous for the offspring because of the similarity of the
09:21
genetics back in abraham's day it was still legal and of course people were a little healthier back then too did anybody remember how long abraham lived 175 years nobody lives that long today so we have degenerated from the time of adam and eve when they were living over nine or 12 years on the average prior to the flood after the flood we see an exponential decline in human lifespan but by the time of abraham i mean he was still in living to be about a hundred years longer than the average is today so they were healthier then but not that
09:52
long afterward in the time of moses god said okay no more close blood marriages but where there is no law there's no transgression so when people say oh the bible contradicts itself well no there was no law back then there was no need for one it came in two and a half millennia later now then the fact that we're made in the image of god is what gives us our great value we are made in his image we're destined to be the children of the father and to be the bride of the creator jesus christ and that's why we have dignity and value and
10:22
purpose and an eternal royal destiny in the royal family of god that's the high and lofty and noble position of man according to god's word darwin came along and he changed everything he said no no we're not all one blood we have you know come as a product of time slime plus time equals you or from go to you by way of the zoo you know we got here just by naturalistic evolutionary processes and therefore we're just evolved animals and therefore we don't have this dignity and value that the bible talks about we
10:53
don't have the amagiodeo the image of god which was what makes us truly valuable and when you take that away it takes dignity value purpose hope of life beyond the grave it takes away any possibility of any kind of an absolute morality because if we're all just evolved animals then there is no purpose there is no meaning when you die you lose it all even the memory that you ever existed and there is no way to determine right or wrong because what gives your evolved brain any more authority than mine to say what's right or what's wrong
11:24
there really isn't absolute right and wrong there's just survival or extinction there's just comfort or discomfort but right and wrong you know that really doesn't even exist in an evolutionary world so darwin himself didn't invent race racism but his theory gave a tremendous impetus to racism in fact when we look at the full title of his book the origin of species by means of natural selection or subtitle the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life man is just an evolving animal humans
11:55
are just highly evolved animals there are different races of humans and some of them are favored and some of them are lower some of them are inferior now if you want to put the definition of racism in a nutshell basically that's it that some are superior by nature and some are inferior and that makes no sense according to god's word who says that we're all equal in one important way now what is that we're obviously not equal in size and shape and color we're not equal in the gifts that we
12:25
have what is the way that we're equal we're all equal in that we have equal value before god because we're all made in the image of god we're all destined to be children of the father and the bride of jesus christ we all have the dignity of being made in his image for that purpose and although we're not equal in other ways we're equal in that very important way we have dignity and value and purpose because we bear the very image of god now when you take that away as darwin did then yeah we're just animals struggling for existence and according to evolution
12:57
some have evolved up on the higher branches of the tree and some are still stuck down here on the lower branches well according to evolution the survival of the fittest the doctrine of natural selection says that the fittest not only have the ability but actually even the right to eliminate the lower races because that's how evolution works the superior race has to wipe out the lower races and that's what propels darwinian evolution so this doctrine of darwin gave a tremendous impetus to racism which certainly had
13:28
existed ever since the fall of man you know the sinful man anybody who looks a little different talks a little different oh well they're inferior and they're bad or whatever you know man's sinful nature just always wants to pick on anyone who's different but darwinism says yeah there's a real big difference why we're different we have evolved on different branches and some really are superior and some really are inferior not only that those who are superior have the right of nature of the natural order of how things work natural law to eliminate the lower races now then
14:00
james rachel's an atheist evolutionist brought this to its ultimate moral implications in discussing in context there what should we do with people since supposedly uh the only thing that makes man different from animals is our superior intellect what if you don't have a superior intellect what if you're he said what are we to say about them speaking of people he said the natural conclusion according to the doctrine we are considering darwinism would be that their status is that of mere animals and perhaps we should go on to conclude
14:31
that they may be used as non-human animals are used perhaps as laboratory subjects or as food now if evolution is a fact an unassailable fact of science as is taught in our schools and colleges and universities it's taught in the media thought in our movies if it is a fact is there anything morally wrong with this statement no because there is no ultimate morality if evolution is a fact but if humans are made in the image of god even
15:02
if they are crippled even if they are mentally deficient they still bear the amagiodeo the image of god they still have infinite intrinsic value because of how god made them they're not just animals they do bear his image and that gives them tremendous value it's not just based on how big and strong and smart you are it's based on whose image you're made in but with evolution you're not made an image of anyone certainly not any creator you're just another evolved animal
15:33
trying to compete trying to survive and this is what happens to morality there ultimately is no morality so if evolution is true we lose a lot dignity value purpose hope of eternal life beyond the grave and any hope of any kind of absolute morality so i don't really want to believe evolution the implications are too horrific they better have some really good evidence to support this theory before anyone in their right mind would want to receive it along with all of its horrific baggage
16:04
like this now hitler of course uh was well read in darwin and nietzsche and in his famous book mein kampf which in german means my struggle he used the german word for evolution more than 150 times in this relatively small book to justify so-called scientifically his racism against especially the jews and he said oh yes you know the concept of the bible you know that we're all made an image of god that we're all equal that all men should be respected
16:35
he said this is you know medieval hogwash this this will keep us back in the dark ages darwin gave us the light of truth we're just struggling animals there is you know no god that we're made in the image of and as a consequence we have to realize that if we follow the bible and we love one another and have peacefully coexist we'll just stagnate and rot and the whole human race will go extinct because the only thing that keeps us going is struggle and war and violence and competition that's what drives evolution that's what drives things to evolve higher
17:05
and it's the opposite of what the bible teaches so in this book he gave this racist philosophy and he said exactly what he was going to do you know a lot of people thought he was a crackpot and everything like that but he really told everyone what he intended to do and as much as he could he did do what he said he would do in this book a lot of people don't realize that more than 150 times he appealed to the so-called fact of evolution to justify his racism and also ultimately the genocide that he tried to perpetrate on those who he considered to be
17:35
subhuman now a contemporary of adolf hitler was the evolutionist in great britain sir arthur keith siratha keith wrote a book called evolution and ethics not long after world war ii and in there he said the german fuhrer has consistently sought to make the practice of germany conform to the theory of evolution well you can't really argue with that hitler himself said as much but it's interesting that in this book on ethics sister arthur keith came to the conclusion that although we
18:06
may not like the bloody brutal tactics of adolf hitler we cannot pass moral judgment on him after all he's not doing anything different than what nature has supposedly done for millions of years and who are we to pass judgment and say now it's wrong when nature has been doing it for millions of years he believes his race is the superior race he wants to prove it by wiping out the other races well in evolution if evolution's a fact how can you say that's wrong it's only wrong if man is
18:37
made in the image of god and man does have dignity and value and should be respected and should not be treated as if he's subhuman just because somebody says so or some theory claims so hitler himself made it very clear that he believed in evolution and that was what propelled him and gave him the so-called scientific justification for what he did in this speech to his officer cadets june 22 1944 he said nature is always teaching us that she is governed by the principle of selection the victory is to the strong and the
19:09
weak must go to the wall or in other words be executed war is therefore the unalterable law of the whole of life well if you believe evolution is a fact that's seemingly a logical conclusion it's all about fighting and struggle you know for survival of the fittest and so he came to that conclusion he said the prerequisite for the natural selection of the strong and the precedent for the elimination of the weak all creation is subject to this law no one can avoid it since life on earth began
19:39
struggle has been the very essence of existence really how would he know what has been true since the very beginning unless he was actually there to observe it at the beginning he's just assuming it was so he never observed it no scientist did we do have a witness who was there from the very beginning who actually created everything who saw it who's so holy that he cannot lie and he happens to disagree with hitler and all the evolutionists i think god would say to hitler and darwin the same thing he said to job where were you when i laid the
20:10
foundation of the earth well that's right job you didn't even exist i was able to create this whole universe without holding your hand and having you guide me and help me figure out what to do i am the infinite eternal creator in other words and he would say the same thing to hitler and darwin how can you say that it's been this way from the beginning when you weren't there at the beginning i was there at the beginning and i declared everything was very good and the struggle and the suffering that you see today was not there that came in as a result of the curse which
20:40
the first man adam was warned against and he rebelled committed high treason brought this curse upon himself and upon all of his descendants and my reaction was not just to wipe him out and say i'm going to start over with somebody else who maybe will listen to me god had invested too much in adam and eve he had made them in his image to be his children to be his bride and that gave them intrinsic infinite value enough that both they and their offspring would receive a king's ransom because they're really that important we're not just slime plus time equals you
21:11
we are made in the very image of god and god breathed into adam something of his own nature that makes us even higher than the angels and indeed in our redeemed state we will judge the angels we will sit in the throne with christ as the queen of heaven ruling with the king of kings and lord of lords as his bride so this is extremely different because of the wrong philosophy of evolution and looking at man and looking at the purpose of life god created everything very good it's now in a temporary disciplinary aberration
21:43
is now in a cursed state but at the very beginning of time god promised it would only be temporary in genesis 3 15 he said the seed of the woman not the man someone born of a woman but not with a human father would come and crush the head of the serpent a redeemer would come and so it's just temporary it's there for the purpose of us seeing the terribleness of sin and hopefully learning from our mistakes at his expense and making the right choice at the tree of calvary even though adam made the wrong choice if the tree of knowledge good and evil
22:14
we all have a right to make the correct choice at the tree of calvary and therefore partake forever of the third tree the bible talks about the tree of life which will reappear in the new earth in the new jerusalem and everyone who is a redeemed saint will have a right to partake of that tree and live forever so since life began on earth it's not been suffering death and struggle it was all very good man ruined it with his willful sinful rebellion god's answer to man's rebellion was the most gracious loving act you could ever imagine giving his son to die on our
22:45
behalf and there will be a restoration where there is no more sorrow no more sickness no more pain no more tears no more curse and no more death for the former things are passed away now that is something i want to believe in if there's any chance that that's true i want to believe that who wouldn't but only would i believe this if there's overwhelming scientific evidence that it must be true and there certainly is not anybody can look at it with an open mind you can see it's riddled with fatal flaws it's just that the public is not allowed to see the
23:16
whole picture they're not allowed to even question the so-called fact of evolution but a lot of people don't like to listen to this you know that hitler used his belief in evolution to justify some of the greatest genocide and holocaust the world has ever seen they change the subject and say oh well yeah but you know you're creationists you're really wacko you believe that the earth's only been here about 6 000 years well how can you explain all the different races i mean it takes genetic mutations and natural selection in millions of years of time to get this racial diversity and you only have 6 000 years
23:47
that just won't work well first of all i want to point out that we don't have different races we have ethnic variety within the one human adamic race and therefore we actually have all the same skin color it's the human coloration agent a protein called melanin a brownish protein and so we're not black or white we're actually very dark brown or very light brown and shades of brown in between we're all the color of atom the color of melanin protein and we just have different amounts of
24:18
that protein that's not a very big difference at all back genetically it's extremely slight a fraction of one percent difference not a big difference that you'd expect from evolution now we also know that there are six different genes that code for and control how much melanin is naturally produced in your skin you used to think there was only four they've now confirmed that there are six three different dominant genes the dominant genes are important for imparting the color that would be capital a capital b and capital c being the dominant ones
24:50
the lowercase letters lowercase a b and c are semi-recessive a fully recessive gene would be like silent it would say make no melanin at all but these do say make a little bit so we'd call them semi-recessive actually so we have three different dominant genes and three different semi-recessive genes now that explains how we get all this variety in a very short time in fact much less than 6 000 years mathematically this could happen uh you know with adam having as many children as he did it wouldn't take long at all
25:21
but we'll look at that in a minute with a genetic punnett square to show that mathematically it is not a difficulty at all but at this point some people say well wait a minute do we need to go to that extreme i mean doesn't the bible tell us that black skin color came from the the curse that god put on on a cane in a word no where does it say that that curse was black skin color you'll have to read that into the text or add to the text proverbs 30 says every word of god is pure do not add to his word lest you be reproved and be found a liar
25:52
whatever the mark was that god put on cain was actually in an extension of his grace and his mercy he put some mark on him so that anyone who saw him wouldn't immediately kill him out of vengeance you know he killed his brother but everybody was closely related at that time so he killed everybody else's close relation too and no doubt some of them wanted to have blood vegeons but god put a mark on him so that he wouldn't be immediately killed he would have time to see the enormity of his crime and hopefully repent and be saved because not god's not willing that any should perish but that all
26:23
would come to repentance so whatever it was it was a good thing it wasn't a curse and it doesn't say it was black skin color or dark skin color others say oh yes but the bible does tell us you know that after the flood noah put a curse on ham and that's where all these dark people come from the descendants of ham you know so it shows that it was the curse no it doesn't say that noah didn't say cursed be ham what did he say cursed be canaan just one of the four sons of ham
26:54
okay the other three don't have a curse on them or on their descendants and kanan happened to be the progenitor of who the canaanites some of the most wicked people in history for example the people of sodom and gomorrah were canaanites however one of his other son's name was cush anybody know what the land of cush means biblically well today we call it ethiopia and everybody knows that it's been habited by black ethiopians from time immemorial and they had no curse on them how can it
27:26
be that they that have no curse are dark skin color indisputably in the land of cush but the canaanites who are probably mediums colored you know mediterranean brown they were the ones that had the curse you see you have to read the bible carefully it's very very important that we don't misjudge things so there's no basis for that being any kind of a curse why do we have this variety of color in the human race one reason god who alone could be the author of information and genes are information systems as much as any
27:58
computer system or any language or any code it's a form of information that can only be produced by an intelligent author based on everything we know in real science you do not get information by the laws of chemistry physics time and chance it's never been demonstrated but you do get it from an intelligent author we can demonstrate that any day of the week so an author put these genes there now if god had not wanted there to be this variety he could have easily done away with that
28:29
if he gave us all dominant genes guess what we'd all be dark and there could be no variation if he gave us all semi-recessive genes in the genome you'd always inherit some recessive genes from both your parents and you'd all be very light-skinned and there would be no possibility of any variation instead he chose to give three different dominant genes and three different semi-recessive genes so that you could have this tremendous variation actually of 64 different possible combinations that can be inherited within those 64. there are seven
29:00
distinctly different shades of color from the protein melanin now we demonstrate this by using a simple genetic punnett square like you see in high school or college textbook on genetic inheritance and you remember you you inherit half your genes from each parent okay so there's six genes that you inherit for melanin but you get three from your father and three from your mother so the number of combinations of different possible combinations of three that you could inherit potentially amounts to eight different possible
29:31
combinations of three that could be inherited from each parent so we have like a vertical axis here like we'll say maybe that's adam and this horizontal axis is eve where these intersect on the grid tells you what combinations of genes are potentially capable of being inherited by parents who have this combination both parents having the three different dominant and three different recessive genes and even spread of all six they would be brown they wouldn't be very dark and
30:02
they wouldn't be very light they'd just be medium brown but they would have the potential to produce extremely dark offspring and very light offspring and shades in between because of this combination now what's listed here the numbers aren't all six genes it's just the dominant genes that are being listed here those are the ones important for imparting color for example here you have all dominant genes from atom all dominant genes from eve meaning six all dominant genes that's the
30:32
darkest shade that you could possibly be very dark brown but there's also a possibility of inheriting all recessive or semi-recessive genes from both parents one in 64 probability now the zero there doesn't mean you didn't inherit any genes it means you did not inherit any dominant genes you inherited you always inherit six genes for melanin but in this case they were all semi-recessive therefore it listed as zero as the number of dominant genes you can see that although there are eight times eight to sixty-four sixty-four different
31:02
possible combinations there are seven distinctly different amounts of melanin that can be inherited in here zero dominant meaning all six semi-recessive genes so you have zero one two three four five and six so with the zero and six you get seven different possibilities different shades that all can be inherited from parents having this mix which i believe god intended uh the only reason to put a mixture of dominant and semi-recessive genes is so you can get variety if god didn't
31:34
want to stab variety he easily could have mixed that by simply giving us all dominant or all semi-recessive genes and then there would be no mixing there would be no variation shades of color at all so it obviously was the will of god i'm actually glad for that you know i think we'd all be bored silly if we all looked the same and you know like we're stamped out of the same cookie cutter and this way everybody is different and our genetics are such the way god put together the human genome that the number of alleles or variant genes uh
32:04
allow for a tremendous variation in fact francisco jayala notable evolutionist geneticist in the scientific american article he said that based on what we can see of the alleles in the human genome the variation potential is the order of 10 to the power of 2017. in other words 10 to the power of 2017 different combinations that's number one with 2017 zeroes after it that's an incredibly huge number uh the estimated number of protons electrons and neutrons in the observable universe
32:35
is only about 10 to the power of 80. this is the number with 2017 zeros not just 80. so it's inconceivably huge what that means is that there is no probability in any operational sense of reality that any human being will ever be born with exactly your same gene combination by chance now they can be very similar if they're identical twins because the fertilized egg you know splits and the genes are virtually identical even in those cases though identical twins aren't exactly identical
33:06
their fingerprints are different their retinal scan is different their free will choices are different their personalities can be different ultimately their destinies can be different because of the use of their free will so everyone really is uniquely different and there's never going to be anyone else exactly like you ever in this universe you're one of a kind which makes you valuable because the more rare something is the more valuable it is and god has given us richness of variety something we should rejoice
33:38
in instead of being all biased and bigoted and prejudiced about we should realize you know i mean god gave variety to animals look at all the varieties of fishes you know just look at dogs all the different breeds of dogs you know puppies are born they come out all kind of different colors you know but you don't say oh well these are inferior and those are superior no they're just dogs with different colors and god has given us rich variety in the human genome so that we could all be very different yet the same time in the most important way we're all exactly equal we're equal in our value
34:08
we're equal and that we're made in the image of god so what happened that caused the different ethnic varieties of man i believe the bible gives us the key with the breakup of nations at the tower of babel where basically at the tower of babel we had one language and we had people living in one locality no god had commanded them to spread out and fill the world and they were blatantly rebelling against god's known will they said no we're not going to spread out we're going to stay right here build this tower make a name for ourselves
34:38
and god in essence said okay let us go down and fix their wagon i'm paraphrasing we said let us go down and confuse our language and scatter them out across the face of the earth you know he didn't want them working in rebellion against them so one of the ways he kept them from working together was to give them different languages and spread them out across the face of the earth now prior to that time since they all spoke the same language the relatively small population probably of several thousands of people and they were living in the same area you could pretty much you know
35:09
marry anybody you wanted to there was not a geographical barrier to finding a mate there was not a linguistic barrier and so no no problem marrying whoever you want it and there could be all this rich variety but overnight with the tower of abel judgment all of a sudden you can't read yesterday's newspaper it's a foreign language to you you can't talk to most of the people anymore they have a different language and god scattered them out now you're traveling with this little group of people who actually speak a language you can understand and
35:40
you have to go out to a different foreign country and establish a new you know nation or whatever and that means you only have a little piece of the former genetic pie now you've got to marry in that little group that speaks your same language lives in your geographical location and that means all this tremendous variety that used to be available in the human gene pool you only got a little piece of that pool only little piece of the genetic pie therefore after the dispersion of nations of the tower of babel you would predict that there would be a distinct ethnic appearance among the different tribes
36:12
nations and tongues because they don't have as much genetic variation potential as used to be available prior to the time of the tower of babel now you notice that some of these people you know migrated down to africa they're primarily dark-skinned and they probably you know got separated out probably god gave languages to different clans or family groups because god did create the family and respects the family but if they had some of these differences even if they had both white and dark people in their clan you know people might go down here to africa and say man it's hot down here we hear it's cooler up north we're fair
36:44
skinned we're getting sunburned all the time you know we're going to go up north and so certain people decide to split go up north the people who say hey you know the sun doesn't bother us here we're dark skinned your melanin actually is like a built-in biological sunscreen people of dark skin have like a natural 20 spf built in you know sun protection factor 20 times what light-skinned people have and that's why skin cancer as a result of overexposure to the sun is much less common among dark-skinned people as compared to
37:14
fair-skinned people but there could have been disagreements there could have been prejudice you know where well these you know we're mostly dark skinned and these guys kind of light skin they kind of stick out they're kind of weird maybe god has cursed them maybe we shouldn't have anything to do with them and so they get an argument they break up and the light-skinned people move up here and lives down here we know for a fact that in australia their own legends say that when they first came to australia thousands of years ago after the great flood they have the flood legends like over 250 different uh
37:46
groups of people historically have because they did descend from noah and his family they said every now and then they get white people born in their population they still had a few semi-recessive genes left over from babel but they thought oh this is weird these people are light-colored they must be cursed of god they must be evil so they'd throw them out in the outback in the wilderness where they would just die thus by their prejudice not remembering the rest of what god's story said that we're all in one bloodline from adam that were all cousins
38:15
they in essence made sure they had a purebred black ethnic type by uh ostracizing and refusing to marry those who had light skin color how much of that happened after the tower of babel well god only knows but it was this breakup and getting smaller and smaller pieces of the genetic pie obviously those that migrated out to the uh asian areas had the asian features you know the the so-called asian eye we'll look at that in a little while but once you get out there you can only marry those people that you came with
38:47
that's very that speak your same language and you're not likely to marry somebody who doesn't speak your language lives in a foreign country anymore so they're all stuck with these little pieces of the genetic pie and that explains why you have this distinct ethnic appearance thereafter because you don't have the significant variation that used to be available at babel now then those that went to india you notice they didn't go so far you know from babel to india is not that far and they may not have splintered off as bad as some of these far flung groups and that may explain why today on the
39:17
subcontinent of india we have many people who are genetically what we call mulatto in other words the parents have an even spread of the three different dominant and three different recessive genes in both parents remember that gives you the maximum variation potential where with one large family you could conceivably get everything from very dark skin offspring to very light skin and shades in between all in one family we see that a lot down in brazil also america's used to be called i guess you know the great melting pot because we've had all these people migrate to our country and intermediate
39:49
and everything but really america is more like what i'd call tossed salad you know people migrate here but then they tend to keep in their own you know national community and everything they don't marry people outside of that as much as perhaps you would expect yeah brazil is quite different in brazil my goodness that's a real melting pot down there and you can't look at anybody and judge whether or not they're in the same family or not by their physical characteristics it might be somebody who's tall and white and somebody who's short and dark and say oh they don't
40:20
look like they even be in the same family in fact they are brothers or sisters in the same family tremendous variation they also don't have a lot of the prejudice down there that we have because they see that this rich variety obviously can be manifest in the same family so it's not a big difference at all now then here we have the mixed doubles or two-tone twins it's interesting in this marriage we have a englishman who married a wife his wife had a nigerian father and an english mother so she's actually
40:51
mulatto but she married an english father and because those genes that had been separated primarily from europe and in england by the tower of babel dispersion those dominant genes came back together in this marriage when the genes come back together the potential for variety comes back too and it was a manifest in these fraternal twins that were born one very fair skin fair-haired one dark-skinned and dark-yard now if both the parents had been mulatto instead of one mulatto and one white
41:22
uh you could have had the darkest dark and the lightest light born at the same time nothing mathematically impossible with that see it has nothing to do with genetic mutations ages of time natural selection it has to do with the genetic potential that god put there at the beginning it was there until babel it got separated largely at the time of the tower of babel but in a marriage like this where it comes back together that potential comes back and you can see obviously that we're all one family one race and you know i mean the definition scientifically of the same species
41:53
is that if they can uh you know mate and have fertile offspring then they're of the same species obviously all humans are of the same species the same human species the same human kind because god made us that way and the fact that we can reproduce with anybody from any so-called different race shows there aren't different races and we get so-called racial characteristics born in the same family for crying out loud obviously it has nothing to do with race but with the potential genetically that god put there on purpose now then the only prohibition against intermarriage has always been
42:25
spiritual not physical both in the old and new testament you know a lot of people say hey you know you should marry your own kind you know like they'd look at these people oh how horrible these people don't they know the bible says you're supposed to marry your own kind i'd like to ask just what kind is that is that the human kind yes is that the kind descended from adam who are blood relative cousins yeah well then they did marry their own kind the human kind but the prohibition is not uh physical because it would be a
42:56
logical contradiction you know if everybody is descended from adam in the same bloodline then we're all adamic in our race that's all there is to it we're all adamic we're all human so there can't be a physical dispute but there can be a spiritual difference it is possible you know to be in rebellion against god and into false religion and idolatry and things like that even though you are descended physically from adam so in the case we see here rahab the heathen harlot she
43:28
converted to faith in the true god she actually could see you know that her dumb idols that she was worshipping didn't have any power but boy when this god came with israel he was giving them victory left and right supernaturally he must be a true and living god she could see that she wanted to save herself and her family so she hid the israelite spies and because of her faith she's not only listed in the hebrews chapter 11 hall of fame of faith but she did save herself and her family she converted to faith in the god of israel was allowed as a proselyte to marry
43:58
an israelite man and guess what her name turns up in the genealogy of the jewish messiah jesus christ the former heathen harlot who became a jew by faith as the bible says it's circumcision of the heart by faith that makes you a real jew not just your physical descent and she became a jew s by putting faith in the true god so she was not restricted because of her ethnic background not being jew she was descendant of adam made an image of god an arab salvation
44:29
through christ who died for not just our sins but the sins of the whole world and she did the important things she put her faith in the true god making her a daughter of abraham by faith another example in the old testament is that of ruth the moabite woman who married boaz she had been moabite but she said to naomi whether thou goest i will go and your god will be my god ah she converted to faith in the true god of israel making her a proselyte making her eligible to marry boaz who was an israelite
44:59
man and her name also ends up in the genealogy of the jewish messiah jesus christ so obviously there is no physical prohibition but because spiritually they converted to faith in the true god they were eligible to marry and be in that line of descent of the messiah himself we do know from the story though that boaz was a very wicked and despicable man before he married ruth how do we know that well before he married her you see he was utterly ruthless what can i say all right little humor here with all this technical stuff
45:30
okay now then in first corinthians chapter 7 verse 39 paul writes that a wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives if the husband dies she is free to be married carte blanche to whom she wishes notice no ethnic background oh he's got to marry a jew you know she's got to marry somebody of this ethnicity no no physical restriction what's the one and only restriction only in the lord she has to marry a believer she has to marry spiritually the right person she can't possibly
46:02
marry somebody who's not you know uh human a descendant of adam she can't marry any human who's not a descendant of adam but she can marry someone who's not related to the last adam jesus christ by faith and by the born-again experience so in the new testament also the restriction of inner marriage is not physical but it is spiritual now also in second corinthians 6 14 the apostle paul wrote be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers here again we don't hate unbelievers god
46:32
loves them created them in his image just as much as us we all once were one unbelievers we don't hate them we love them and actually we want to win them when we understand this truth our motivation and evangelism would still win our lost cousins our lost relations into a closer and an eternal relationship with us see i can say on biblical authority to anyone in the world today you are my relative you are my distant cousin but if you get born again by the spirit of god
47:02
into the family of god spiritually you become spiritually my immediate brother my immediate sister a much closer relationship and an eternal relationship that will never end and so we love the unbelievers they are our cousins they are made an image of god jesus died for them and loves them and wants us to win them as much as we can so it's not that we hate them and don't like them or anything but we just you know it's just common sense here you don't want to marry an unbeliever as your marriage partner i like what billy graham said he said if you marry an unbeliever
47:34
you take the devil as your father-in-law you know because the bible says the unbelieving person unregenerate is under the power of a sinful nature they're taken captive at the devil's will they're under the power of the enemy and you're just courting disaster if you do that we do love them we want to win them to christ but it's just common sense that you don't want to be married to them i mean it's hard enough to stay married when christians marry christians nowadays you know with all the pressures and problems we have but to marry an unbeliever is just asking for disaster and trouble and that's why paul said that don't
48:05
marry the unbelievers therefore the only possible interracial marriage according to the bible is a spiritual interrelational marriage you cannot physically marry anybody who is not a part of the same endemic race that you are but you can marry somebody who's not the same spiritual race there's a race of the first adam that has fallen there's a race of the risen resurrected last adam jesus christ which will be an eternal race in his family and you need to be a member of the race of the last adam jesus christ and have a
48:36
marriage where both partners have their faith in christ now then in revelation 5 9 speaking of jesus christ it says worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals for thou wast slain and by thy blood ditched ransom men for god from every tribe and tongue and people and nation that leave anybody out every nation tribe and tongue that's pretty all-inclusive you notice this means very clearly that
49:07
every nation tribe and tongue every ethnic group must be related by blood to the first rebel adam because they have a fallen sinful nature and therefore they need the redemption of the last adam jesus christ who died to seek and to save what that which was lost when clear back in genesis every nation tithe and tongue were still in the loins of adam back then they fell with him and because they're related to him every nation tribe and tongue can be redeemed by the last adam who
49:39
came to seek him to save that which was lost if they weren't related to the first adam they wouldn't need a savior they wouldn't have a fallen nature so here biblically and doctrinally again it clearly teaches there aren't different races different nations tribes tongues ethnicities but they're all related to the same atom and they all need the savior the last adam jesus christ but you notice here that jesus paid the bridal price in his own blood with his own suffering with his own death that he might have the honor and
50:10
the privilege of redeeming a bride for himself from every nation tribe and tongue it appears that he is not very prejudiced if he's willing to die for all of us and values us all equally in that way in this regard we you know in some cultures um the bridegroom is required to pay a bridal price to the father of the bride he's got to pay a bridal price which usually can be very exorbitant and take many you know several years wages accumulated they
50:40
have to build up over time to be able to to purchase so to speak the bride you have to pay the bridal price jesus paid that price equally for every nation tribe and tongue he considered all ethnicities to have equal value because they're all ultimately the descendants of adam and they're all ultimately made in the image of god now i know there's people in the church that say well yeah you know that makes sense that's undeniable we're all in the bloodline one blood we're all descended from adam
51:11
every nation tribe and dung related to adam but you know i still don't want my son or daughter marrying one of them blacks i don't want to marry one of those hispanics or one of those asians or one of those caucasians or one of those samoans or one of those native americans or whatever really jesus was willing to shed his blood to pay the bridal price for those somehow they're good enough for him but they're not good enough for our son or daughter i don't think that logic can hold up scripturally now i'm not saying that we
51:42
should go out and try to marry someone from a different ethnic background just to prove bless god we're not prejudiced in the church you know paul said if you marry at all you're going to have trouble in this life anybody knows that one you know he said if you can be single that's the best way to go but if you don't have the gift it's better to get married not very many people have the gift of being single have you noticed but for those who don't have the gift it's better to be married but he said you will have trouble in this life so even if you marry a christian you're gonna have more trouble in this
52:12
life being married than you would otherwise if you could be remain single but if you marry a christian from a different ethnic background you might have even more trouble in this life not because it's simple not because it's wrong according to god's word but because we do live in a fallen world full of hatred and prejudice and bias and bigotry and belief in evolution which has spawned so much racist racism so what i'm saying is that the bible tells us whosoever is led to the spirit of god they're the children of god when it comes to important questions like who
52:43
you're going to marry we don't let the world and its prejudice and its lying theory of evolution tell us how to make a decision we go to god's word as our authority we're led by his spirit god just might lead you to marry a christian from a different ethnic background if he does where god guides god provides and he'll give you extra grace even if you have more trouble in this life because of doing so god has a purpose in it and he'll give you the extra grace but i think a lot of people may have actually missed the very best marriage partner got intended for them because
53:13
they were so close-minded oh i'd never even consider marrying one of those you know as if they're some kind of alien or something because their skin's a little different color they come from a different country or whatever what i'm saying is we shouldn't be close-minded we should acknowledge the truth that we're all one blood we're all in the endemic human race that if anybody who's a christian is fair game you're free to marry in the lord so don't be closed minded but do listen to the spirit of god and make sure you don't miss the best partner god may have for you just because of
53:44
you know tradition or prejudice or bigotry you know the sad thing is that there's so much prejudice and hatred and bigotry in the world it should be a big difference when we come into the church you know people should come into church and say wow this is really different here but you love everybody you embrace everybody and and you honor and esteem to everybody as if they're your own long-lost relative well everybody is our relative according to biblical doctrine and they're made in the image of god and yes they should be treated with love and respect because of that
54:15
now then in john 13 35 jesus himself said by this all men will know that you are my disciples if you have love one for another not signs and wonders and miracles but love is the distinguishing characteristic now signs and miracles can and will follow believers the bible teaches that but the devil can also do signs and wonders he's been doing it for thousands of years he contended with moses the egyptians by satanic power were able to duplicate some of moses's miracles okay but it was limited
54:46
you know came to the point where they said hey this is the finger of god we can't do that but by that time pharaoh's heart was so hard he didn't care but the point is when the antichrist comes it says he will have such lying signs and wonders that if possible the very elect will be deceived so there's going to be a lot of supernatural showdown going on in these last days but what can't the devil counterfeit he can counterfeit miracles he can't counterfeit genuine love shed abroad in our hearts by the holy spirit that's the thing that impresses people when they come in the church and they
55:16
see that love and they see that it's not you know this little click and that little clickbait that everybody has loved big and tall fat and skinny different shades of color they're all loved and respected and honored then they'll say wow god is in you of a truth if it's your god that gives you this love then let your god be my god just like ruth said to naomi and it could be a tremendous catalyst for revival in these last days if you know we would show the type of love in the church that the people don't see in the world and of all places with the doctrine we
55:48
have with the truth we have it should be there i know that you know i grew up being an agnostic evolutionist my mother was very prejudiced you know she raised me saying oh it's a horrible abomination you know that black and white people marry it's you know sin against nature and everything and i never could quite understand why there's so much hatred and bigotry because somebody's skin was a bit darker than mine i have to admit it wore off on me and when i finally found the lord and i found this truth i had to get down and repent you know there is no substitute for repentance and when
56:20
you find the truth and you realize you've walked in darkness walked in the lie there's no substitute but to repent and i did and if we would realize that judgment begins at the house of god and therefore god is going to judge us first if we don't walk in his ways there should not be prejudice in the church of all places we have the truth the world is full of lies full of deception full of violence and hatred the one oasis that there should be in this whole fallen wretched world is the church of jesus christ
56:52
and if we can't do it nobody can but it starts with repentance judgment begins at the house of god if we would judge ourselves the scripture says we would not be judged and we could have i believe tremendous impetus for revival in these last days that people see the love of god especially with the so-called different races or different ethnic communities you know one of the most uh segregated days of the week in america is sunday morning where you have your black churches and your asian churches
57:22
and you know it seems to be too much uh separation it's not going to be that way in heaven so anyway something to think about pray about now some people evolutionists have said yeah but you know we may all have the same skin color melanin but what about these asian people they have these weird eyes i mean my goodness that's got to be mutations natural selection evolution well actually all they have is a layer of fat in their upper eyelid you know what all humans do just like all humans have melanin protein to one extent or another all
57:54
humans have a layer of fat in the upper eyelid but some have more and some have less the so-called caucasian-eyed people have a relatively small amount of fat the asian people have a large fat layer that's all it is different amounts of the very same thing that every human has like with melanin it's easily explained by a breakup of genetic information at the tower of babel if you have a certain clan or ethnic group that's given a certain language and rapidly migrates out to the orient and they happen to have the gene combination for you know dominant genes
58:24
for a large amount of fat once they're isolated out there geographically and linguistically they can only marry those people that they came with in their group and if that genetic characteristic is there it's going to be in a genetic rut there's no way to get out of it unless they could intermarry with people like this who carry an abundance of recessive genes for a smaller amount of fat but now that they're isolated geographically and linguistically that's not likely to happen of course now with modern travel it makes it a whole lot easier for the interethnic marriages to take
58:55
place and when you do you see a blending of these two extremes children that are born for example say the caucasians and asians when they have children americans and asians their children are called amerasian and you can see a kind of a blending of these two extremes and then if the amerasian children marry other amerasians you can see a whole spread within their children of both characteristics and mix in between just like with melanin again it doesn't require evolution thousands or millions of years of time and natural selection of mutations
59:26
is just separation of a genetic combination that became isolated as a result of the tower of babel now the human genome project major undertaking in the late 20th century continuing here in the 21st century to map the entire human genome which they can do now a whole lot less expensively and whole lot more rapidly than they did at first but when this was first being talked about undoubtedly there were some evolutionists who thought oh boy this is going to prove big differences between the different so-called races and it's going to show that our
59:58
prejudice and our racism is founded in factual science and this is going to show these big differences it's going to prove evolution that's going to justify our belief system well those who thought so had their dreams shattered to oblivion because when the analysis came in it confirmed exactly what you'd expect if the bible is literally true that all of us are descended from parents that live no more than a few thousand years ago we especially see that in the human y chromosome male y chromosome there should be a lot more variation there
01:00:29
if we had been intermarrying with each other for hundreds of thousands to millions of years or over a million years like the claim with homo erectus and all that human history going back so far should be a lot more variation instead there isn't and what you see is what you'd expect if humans have only been here for several thousands of years not hundreds of thousands but also the fact that there's so little difference in the human genome they expected big differences between the so-called races or ethnic types what they actually found out was that the biggest difference genetically between even the most diverse so-called
01:01:01
races amounts to a trifling point zero one two percent not at all what they expected based on an evolutionary paradigm but exactly what you'd predict to find if indeed the bible is true history about the origin of man and the duration of man on this earth now it's precisely because this because we are all cousins and we all trace back to the same mother and father just thousands of years ago not hundreds of thousands of years ago is because of that when you're looking for a close genetic match
01:01:32
for example getting organ transplant and once you get outside of your nuclear family you're just as likely to get a close match close enough from someone of a different so-called race how can that be if races are in different branches of an evolutionary tree and have this big difference in evolutionary history is because that story is false we are one blood we are descended from the same ultimate great grandparents only thousands of years ago we are all cousins and that's why we are so
01:02:02
genetically similar the answer to racism is that it is a lie scientifically it cannot be supported biblically it makes no sense whatsoever but it has been used by hitler and others to produce some of the worst genocide the worth the world has ever seen the devil comes to kill and steal and destroy and the best way he can do that is to make you believe you're not made in the image of god you don't have value you're just a product of chance just an animal struggling with no purpose no hope you might as well blow
01:02:34
your brains out because your life has no meaning well when people believe that lie they do commit suicide they play right into the enemy's hands who comes to kill and steal and destroy racism is part of that too divide and conquer make people think that other people that look a little different are somehow the enemy and you have to fight with them and struggle with them hitler said the whole of reality is war and struggle the bible says the whole of reality is love god created us to love him and to love our neighbor as ourself and that we should love him as
01:03:05
our heavenly father we should love every human being as our blood relative because according to biblical doctrine we are and according to science that makes more sense infinitely than the theory of evolution well i do have the same presentation available oh well that's just same thing no big difference between it so we need to get rid of this evolutionized term races should be thrown in the trash can back that's what the evolutionary secular scientists said at the end of the human genome project that the word race is so anti-scientific
01:03:36
in light of the genetic information they found that it should be expunged from the scientific dictionary there aren't different races there are just humans of different ethnic varieties but we're all one human race exactly what the bible has told us for thousands of years now again i do have this available on dvd along with 24 other topics on dvd back there i do believe that we have a little bit of time hope for some questions and answers uh bill did did you need to make some announcements
01:04:06
or anything before we do that or okay all right thank you dr kendall appreciate that one thing also in your back there we have these dvds they're two dollars and they cover maybe about what seven or eight different topics and at two dollars request you buy them only if you're going to give them away so pick a topic give them give them around you know you you want
01:04:40
to uh give reason and hope you may not be able to uh intellectually or or even talk about it but give these away give them to anybody you know who has a question about that so those are available and the other thing is um because dr kindle came here from portland and all we're going to spend five minutes before he takes questions he came from medford down to southern north oh medford southern oregon that's even further okay
01:05:10
portland salem ranch pass 30 miles north of the california border okay great so what we're going to do now is is if you could we're going to take a love offering to show our gratitude to dr kindle and that'll just take a few minutes and then we'll have a question and answer session and by all means ask away because i learned a lot tonight and and the dvds and the books are out there so browse after
01:05:41
after it's over and enjoy the evening so ron are you gonna be ready okay i'll bless this offering father we thank you for this evening this wonderful evening where we learn from dr kindle uh ideas that we suspect as as christians and uh were brought up that way and and we read our bible but uh now to even hear it in a cogent way in a a
01:06:12
nicely step-by-step presentation we know that we're all related and so we just pray now for this offering and ask this in jesus name amen okay i don't know if you want to stand over there or stand there oh okay yes here on the front row i presume that the human genome project was able to reconstruct a primordial or dynamic or whatever you
01:06:49
want to call it genome is that correct well they would not interpret it that way of course but some of our creation science geneticists from what i've seen of what the research they're doing it does in fact corroborate that there was a woman mitochondrial eve as she is called and the y chromosome adam that that we are all descended from they trace it back they try to push it uh further than the biblical chronology of course they would try to push it hundreds of
01:07:22
thousands of years back uh but when we look at the rate of mutations that takes place uh we realize that uh it actually is closer to about six thousand years i think we can we can legitimately argue that they i think overlook that on purpose they don't want you know something that sounds too biblical but they do at least admit that there appeared to be a y-chromosome atom and a mitochondrial eve you know quote-unquote they don't believe in a literal adam and eve i'm not trying to say they do
01:07:52
but they did find evidence that pointed that way and they chose to interpret it as putting them way back you know hundreds of thousands of years ago and that you know they were the ultimate progenitor of us modern humans today so there are similarities there that they themselves noticed but our own geneticists looking at it say that it can be very easily incorporated in the biblical time frame and in the biblical historical record my question was going to be what is that great generation mutations for generations well in the mitochondrial dna the
01:08:26
mutation rate was much higher than the normal mutation rate and that was the thing that they did not take into account i don't remember off hand off memory what how much percentage difference it is but it's a lot faster in mitochondrial dna than it is in normal dna in the nuclear dna in the cell and because of that that's how it brings it down from hundreds of thousands of years to more like six and a half thousand is what the figure they came up with which is you know well within the biblical parameters close enough but i would recommend you go to answers and genesis website
01:08:57
and use the search engine on that also creation.com it's a very good source for that one of their genesis there has some good articles on it uh here again i haven't taught on this topic in quite a while i was requested to do it and so i'm a little bit rusty on some of the exact figures and i don't want to give you wrong info so i'd recommend you go to those sources there to get get the best factual data but i i do believe that it has really um supported biblical creation i think they're trying to put their own spin on
01:09:29
it to try to make it not look the way that the data really does look but i think that we have the stronger arguments and the more research they do in this area the more it just keeps supporting you know the biblical view of man and his origin and to us it's an exciting time to be alive you know because all this research is just more and more confirming what the bible has said all along and i i think we definitely are getting the upper hand in this regard and although we can never get them to agree with us i mean you know like the origin of the first cell
01:09:59
all the evidence is against that and all the evidence shows you need an intelligent designer they have nothing to offer and yet they stubbornly refuse to admit you needed a creator so i'm not going to say this is going to make them roll over and believe in creation i'm just saying for those who look at it with an open mind it's an amazing confirmation of what the bible has told us all about long about the origin of man and the recent origin of man you know that's another thing uh you might look up the uh genetic program that they developed with a computer
01:10:28
called mendel's accountant and also the the work of sanford um genetic entropy and the mystery of the human genome where he points out that the actual known rates mutations that cannot be eliminated you know they're kind of just slightly detrimental slightly off of being neutral they're not neutral they're detrimental but only slightly so so natural selection can't even identify them to eliminate them and these are building up at such a rate that within about 2 000 years it will be
01:11:01
the extinction of the human race there'll be too much deformity too much disease and just too much sterility for us to continue yet the evolutionists claim that we have been here for over a million years starting with homo erectus 1.2 million years yet it appears about 8 000 years is the most that the genome could stand with the current rates of mutations and of course the bible says we've only been here about a little over 6 000 years we're already seeing a lot of genetic problems over 6 000 known defects in the human genome
01:11:31
that the human genome project discovered and it keeps getting worse so here again that puts a limit on how long man could be here and it limits it well within the human or the the uh biblical time scale for humanity and does not allow for either humans or any other higher mammal to be here more than thousands of years because the buildup of the genetic load by known mutation rates that cannot be eliminated by natural selection simply does not allow that here again they turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to that data because it doesn't fit
01:12:02
their preconceived ideas but the data is still there for anyone who wants to look at it with an open mind so that's what i'd recommend yes by uh why i'm doing biblical times like in the old testament times why you know you mentioned that information is very important in order to be accountable for what you do and uh according to history god has spoken to
01:12:39
a certain group of people in order for them to have the information to uh make it possible for them to gain salvation of salvation or being able to acknowledge to god but then after the tower of abel people spread out throughout the world so then it seems like uh as far as we know currently there seems to be a vacuum of information from god to other people that migrated to other parts of the world
01:13:14
he expects of mankind to observe information so these people that did not have the information that has contained in the bible are they held as a convo as the ones that did have the information well i think paul addresses that in the book of romans where he talks about both the jew and the greek those who are gentiles and he he points out that those who have the law will be
01:13:50
judged by the law those who don't have the written law the mosaic law the law that got delivered through the nation of israel that they also have a law that they're very well aware of written in their heart god has written a moral law and he says every nation tribe and tongue knows right from wrong because god has put that moral law in our hearts they know when they sin they know when they do wrong he says they also have enough knowledge to call out to god for salvation he says uh have they not heard you know he's
01:14:21
talking about i think referring to psalm 19 1 where it says the heavens declare the glory of god and the firmament shows his handiwork and it says there's no language where their message is not hurt the message of creation that there is a creator so even though there may be people far flung you know in the in the tropics of brazil or in some polynesian islands somewhere who never heard about moses and his law or the messiah they can look up at the stars they can see the creation and that
01:14:52
language paul says they all can understand there has to be a creator they didn't evolve they can call out to jesus by a name that every human knows creator that's one of his names isn't it he is the creator and when they say create or help me save me they're calling on jesus christ just by a different name the only name they know now in acts chapter 17 paul said that the times of this ignorance god overlooked but now things have changed now he has sent his son now he
01:15:22
has died he has risen from the dead now we have the clear message to preach and now men need to put their faith in christ well here again if if you're out in some far-flung area where you never heard the name of christ how can you do that the answer is god says that if you respond to the light you have if you're faithful with little you know god will make you roll over much if you're faithful in little things you'll be faithful with much if men would respond to what light they do have and paul says everybody has a language they can understand in the creation they can call out to the creators i
01:15:54
don't know who you are what your name is whatever i know you must exist please help me show me your way what happens is that in places where the gospel is not only not available it's forbidden by law people have a dream or a vision where jesus christ himself appears to them and tells them the gospel tells them that he died for them tells them the truth and that's how we get people saved in the muslim countries where it's absolutely illegal to own a bible to hear it on the news or on the radio or television
01:16:25
it's forbidden yet they come to christ and know who he is and when you ask him how did you do that well i was praying for revelation i knew god is real i was not happy with my religion i called out asking god to help me and i got a dream or a vision of jesus christ see the times of the ignorance got overlooked back in those past times before the gospel was available god looked i believe at men's hearts and he could tell from their response to their moral law that god had put in their hearts whether or not they would have
01:16:55
received christ had they been able to know about him because god can see the secrets of men's hearts the bible is also very clear that there will be representative saints in heaven of every nation every tribe and every tongue now there's all kinds of nations tribes and tongues that no longer exist okay but notice it doesn't put a time restriction every nation tribe in tongues starting now noah says every nation tribe and tongue apparently throughout history so god has always had a faithful remnant
01:17:26
even among the heathen there are people who know there is a god who try to call out to him who try to know him and god receives them on the basis of belief what is called the doctrine of implicit faith in other words they're putting faith in god as best they know how god looks at their heart sees if they're sincere or not and he judges them on the basis of that faith with limited light with limited knowledge he knows if they're accepting the little they would be faithful with much if they had the whole message now that christ has come and the full gospel is revealed
01:17:57
those who call out to him are not just judged you know faith you know as worthy by their faith or saved by their faith but i believe jesus does in fact appear to them in a dream or vision and tell them the revelation that they need god actually guarantees that because it says in jeremiah if you seek me with your whole heart you will find me god can't lie about that anybody anywhere knows there's a creator that paul says it without excuse if they don't acknowledge that if they do acknowledge it and they call out to the creator
01:18:28
on me notes to them that's just another name for jesus christ they're calling on jesus he says if you seek me with your whole heart you will find me and in this case now that we have the full gospel jesus i believe will appear to them and there are many many testimonies from all over the world with that the tragedy is that more people don't do that that's what paul says is the condemnation is that everybody is without excuse for not acknowledging god and for not calling upon him those that do god absolutely says they will find him they will be saved
01:18:58
those who don't have no excuse and it's tragic that so many people don't even call out to god as creator when obviously everybody at least knows that if they would obey that light god would give them the fullness of the light of the gospel so i believe that's defensible biblically and it means that as paul said in romans whether they have the full revelation of the law of moses and the coming messiah jesus christ or they just have the creation there is a language spoken by creation that everyone understands the question is will they respond to it
01:19:30
and call upon god if they won't they'll be lost if they do they'll be saved okay over here yeah question is genesis chapter 10 as a so-called table of nations i'm wondering if there is of any help in concerning the ethnic oh yeah yeah it's it's been used for centuries you know for uh genealogical data and things of that nature um you know of course it starts out with the three descendants of noah shem ham
01:20:01
and javith you know and from the hashem we get the shemetic or semitic line actually abraham and the jews and everything so yeah you can trace biblically everybody's ethnic origin back to those founding nations in the table of nations and back ultimately to the three sons of noah so yeah it is it is good data and there are scholars who have done that for centuries you know showing the breakdown bishop usher and others have done that a more recent book
01:20:31
that does that is called after the flood by a fellow by the name of bleep of cooper i can't remember his first name yeah bill cooper yeah yeah that would be a good good book to look up in that regard okay in the back here i heard that um that all jewish people can mitochondria will need to go to i don't know how they would actually determine that unless we had dna from
01:21:14
rachel and leah and their handmaidens i i guess if they had enough data they could do that nowadays but the question is how do they get that ancient genetic data to compare it with you know i mean they might trace it back to the jewish nation easy enough i'm sure they could do that but how do you get it that narrowly defined to these specific jews that they descended from i so i don't know you know i'd have to see more data on it before i could say yay or nay on that one another question here nope
01:21:52
oh okay i couldn't quite see you there in the shadows genesis chapter 6 talks about the sounds of god and the thoughts of men well the best article that i personally have seen on it that i usually recommend people read through before they make any decision is one i found on the answers in genesis website and it uh if you just do a word search on the word nephilim on answers in genesis.org they had one of the most balanced uh analyses of that that whole issue that i
01:22:27
have seen so i i would recommend you look that up and see what they have to say and come to your own conclusion in that regard of course there are the main different theories you know that the sons of god bene elohim refers to angels uh they do point out in that article though that israelites were also called sons of the living god essentially the same terminology so both angels and men can be called bene el elohim the more traditional interpretation is that the sons of god were godly men who saw
01:22:58
the daughters of men and the few remnants of godly men since the world was getting more and more corrupt during the time before the flood as the bible indicates the all the thoughts and imaginations of men's heart was nothing but evil continually and violence filled the world so that interpretation says the remaining sons of god supposed godly line of seth or whatever got pulled into uh mating with loose women and got corrupted and their offspring were nephilim you know which means
01:23:28
mighty ones or men of renown and so they that was the more traditional interpretation of that others is that angels actually procreated with women and you had men angel hybrids i don't particularly subscribe to that because the new testament seems to indicate that men and angels are of a different nature god created kind to reproduce after its own kind it appears that angels and men are two separately created kinds and should not be able to therefore reproduce uh it says that christ did not take on
01:24:00
the form of angels but rather of the seed of abraham a human nature not angelic and so if there's such a difference there there shouldn't be able to be procreation god said that in our redeemed state we will be like the angels who neither marry nor are given in marriage apparently no angels procreate god just created myriads of angels okay with man he decided because man is made in his image which is not said of the angels that man would have family relationships that would be a type in the shadow and a representation of what our ultimate
01:24:30
relationship will be with god because we have families in procreation we understand a parent-child relationship like god wants us to understand him as father well we have fathers so we can relate to that with a family relationship through procreation we have brides and bridegrooms so we can relate to that well ultimately that's the kind of relationship we will have with jesus christ be his spiritual bride and he'll be our spiritual bride groom so i i don't subscribe to angels cohabiting with man and having half men half angel
01:25:01
hybrids another theological problem is since angels have no part of salvation but men do can a half-breed man angel have salvation or not it just seems to open up a big can of worms in that regard but i think another interpretation is that uh there is a strong doctrine of demonic possession of fallen angels possessing humans and controlling them and it could be that the sons of god if they were actually angels uh possessed men and controlled them
01:25:31
and perhaps uh did a selective breeding program with them with women uh trying to breed you know genetic giants and men of renown to help them you know take over the world basically and that's another possibility but there are these different interpretations but personally i think if it was that significant god would have said a lot more about it in a lot more detail and you know it's just almost like a passing note in history you know the sons of gods are the daughters of men and you know so be it i think if it were that significant god
01:26:03
would have commented on it himself in his word quite a bit more so uh up here isn't there somewhere years later when the spies went into the land where definitely it was used again so right yeah there then and we know that there were giants you know so uh and they they uh came back and said there were nephilim there giants in the land and you know we had them evidently before the flood and after the flood i think after the flood especially when
01:26:35
israel invaded the promised land a lot of the giants got wiped out and of course the romans encountered giants the celts you know if you look at history with an open mind they were fighting giants there you know but since the giants were in the minority and the normal-sized people feared and intimidated were intimidated by them it's like they ganged up on them and pretty much wiped them out when they died their genes for giantism died with them so we got a natural selection or selective elimination of any genes for giantism and now giantism is
01:27:06
quite rare and nobody gets quite as big as what we see in the bible you know goliath being nine or ten feet tall and and his king og king of bashan his iron bed was something like 14 feet long so we'll never see anybody get that big not even in the nba so i think those genes have been largely eliminated uh but yeah nephilim could simply be interpreted men of renown who were renowned because they were giants you know and apparently there were some of those genes for giantism apparently passed down through noah's family and if there were a recessive trait it would not manifest unless you're
01:27:37
marrying people that also have that recessive trait which means it would always be a minority but it could happen and there were pockets of giants in egypt and in canaan and other places history records you know so yeah all right was there another one thing that wasn't me until i read the other passage was that when david went to fight the last he picked up five stones well another passage says that your life
01:28:09
has four brothers right and i think david had enough faith that he that if they wanted to step up to defend their brother's honor that he'd take all of them you know that's kind of man of faith he was i think that's very significant yes because he only needed one obviously the faith he had for for goliath but he had four more just in case he needed them so that's a good sermon right there yeah okay up here oh i i want to compliment you on this being able to explain this because i think we need
01:28:39
more of this explanation in this age because the mindset among those who are in positions of power are not out of this mindset they block this type of information yes and too many of them have willfully ignored it as the bible says they willfully ignore the truth and that's the worst kind of ignorance it's a deliberate ignorance so yeah if the church isn't going to hold forth the word of life as the scripture says who else is going to do it certainly not the world which
01:29:11
lies under the sway of the wicked one and are taken captive at his will so only the church uh you know and the sad thing is so much of the church doesn't even believe that the history of genesis is real history anymore because they've been so brainwashed with secular lies and demonic deceptions so it is a sad state of affairs of course jesus did say that when he returned both the wise and the foolish virgins were all sleeping you know even the wise ones were asleep so the church does look like
01:29:42
it's in that sad lethargic sleeping state and we don't seem to be having the impact that we should have but i think you know whatever the call of the bridegroom is that wakes everybody up i'm hoping it'll happen soon because we need to wake up and get out of our lethargy you
