Chart of Human Genealogy from Adam

Chart of the Genealogy from Adam to after the flood

We are all descendants of Adam and Eve and then Noah and his sons. Genesis 1-11. According to the Bible there is no such thing as different "races" of people. We are all part of the human family. We are all physical brothers and sisters. Acts 17:26. The idea of different "races" of people is more evolutionary poppycock and is used by people, white and black skinned, to try to gain an advantage over others. I have known Christians who tried to justify their biases by using the subject of "races." Mostly those who use this erroneous teaching are trying to undermine the authority of the Scriptures. The color of our skin is determined by the amount of potential melanin produced by our skin and that is determined by our genes. However, just being a member of the human family does not guarantee one a place in heaven. In the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3) Adam and Eve disobeyed God and lost their position in God's family, and that curse followed all of their descendants. Now, one must be born again to enter the spiritual family of God. John 3:3-16.
