YANCEY’S BIBLE STUDY ARTICLES
This article is somewhat lengthy given the subject matter. The false teaching of multiple “races” of man has been a major weapon satan has used to “steal, kill and destroy” the LORDS crowning achievement…man. Also, “the desperately wicked heart” of man himself has been and continues to be a willing partner according to Jeremiah 17:9. We hope this article will be a blessing to everyone who loves the LORD. Our prayer is that everyone will surrender their lives to Christ and grow closer spiritually to HIM and everyone whose name is written in the LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE!
Publishers of Charles Darwin’s book “The the Origin of Species” tend to leave out the more complete title, The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin’s next book titled “The Descent Of Man” makes clear what was in his heart concerning mankind.
He taught that there are different “races” which are closer to man’s apelike “ancestors” than others. He decided the people native to the continent called Australia were the lowest of races, while white European and white American were the highest or superior. This lie which is contrary to the Word of GOD has been and continues to be a prime weapon of satan and the depraved heart of man. According to Darwin the races form lowest to highest are AUSTRALOID, NEGROID, MONGOLOID and CAUCASOID. This blatant ethnic animus has been taught in so-called institutions of “higher learning” and accepted as truth for centuries. Therefore, Charles Darwin’s views on evolution contribute greatly to ethnic animus and division. This is especially true since evolution denies the Sovereignty and existence of the ALMIGHTY LIVING GOD.
Darwinian evolution has certainly fueled the concept of “racism” which unfortunately, so many were and are williing to believe. Stephen Jay Gould from Harvard University added this, “Biological Arguments for racism may have been common before 1850, but they increased by orders of magnitude from the acceptance of evolutionary theory.” Belief in evolution is not responsible for sin such as ethnic animus, self righteous pride, sexual immorality, lying, murder and more. Promoting evolution as truth blasphemes the the existence and character of ALMIGHTY GOD.
The “German Darwin” Ernst Haeckel was a key figure during the first “Darwinian revolution“, a time when the foundations of the modern evolutionary theory were laid. Haeckel created a “racial” study of human beings intending to prove mankind evolved or originated from a lower organism. However, Haeckel unlike Darwin didn’t intend to use evolution to establish a discriminatory “racial” practice or “way of life”. He fraudelently claimed human embryo development went through stages making it similar to various animal stages. Haeckel used a fake or doctored diagram to support his hoax. Haeckel’s fraud was later proven.
Ernst Haeckel perpetrated the “embryo goes through a fish stage with gill slits until it becomes human” fraud. After more than fifty years this lie and others are still being taught in the U.S. and around the world. Ernst Haeckel admitted his fraud because he wanted to believe in evolution. His belief in the GODless evolution of man motivated him to publish a book called the “History Of Creation”. The following are some of what he wrote. “At the lowest stage of human mental development are the Australians, some tribes of the Polynesians and the Bushmen, Hottentots, and some the Negro tribes.”
Haeckel’s ethnic animus toward darker skinned people continued with the following teaching. “I consider the Negro to be a lower species of man, and cannot make up my mind upon him as a man and a brother,’ for the gorilla would have to be admitted to the family.” He further recounted a presumed “Christian missionary” named Morlang “Who supposedly tried to without success to civilize the ape like Negro tribes, they stand far below unreasoning animals.”
GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”, Genesis 1:26. Yet the lie of evolution which blasphemes the perfect character of the GODHEAD has been taught for generations, especially in America. Think about the depraved self righteous delusion of anyone having that heart and mindset. What about anyone claiming to be a child of the one true LIVING GOD?
The following is from the standard school biology text book used at the Scoopes trial. It claimed there are “five races or varieties of man. The negro type of Africa. The brown race of Malay or Pacific islands. The native of the north western continent or America. The Mongolian or yellow including China, Japan and Eskimos. Finally, the “highest” type of all, the “civilized” white Caucasians of Europe and the United States of America. That last statement declaring white Causcasians as the “highest” or “superior” kind on man contributes significantly to the ongoing ethnic animus aimed at darker skinned people groups.
The science page from ABC NEWS called “Were all the same”, 9-10-1998, says “More and more scientists find that the differences that set us apart are CULTURAL, not racial. Some even say that the word race should be abandoned because it’s meanlingless.” Ken Ham of AnswersInGenesis.org asks these question, “Why hasn’t the church been out there saying this? Why haven’t we been leading the way?”
Current research by Dr. Venter of the Human Genom Project concluded “…there is only one race the human race”. According to Dr. Douglas C. Wallace at Emory School of Medicine, “The criteria that people use for race are based entirely on external features that we are programmed to recognize,”.
THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM KEN HAM’S TEACHING CALLED
“ONLY ONE RACE”
THE FOLLOWING ARE A FEW SCRIPTURES PROVING EVOLUTION IS A LIE…
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.
“Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
‘Your hands fashioned and made me altogether, And would You destroy me?
‘Remember now, that You have made me as clay; And would You turn me into dust again? ‘Did You not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese;
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
1 Corinthians 8:6
Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
WHEN AND WHERE DID THE RACE SUPERIOR RACE INFERIOR LIE BEGIN?
ONE RACE CAN’T = RACISM
ACCURATE DEFINITIONS FOR HOSTILITY TOWARD DIVERSE PEOPLE WOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE…
ETHNIC ANIMUS OR PEOPLE GROUP DISCRIMINATION
WHAT ABOUT INTERETHNIC MARRIAGE?
“Interracial” marriage DOES NOT EXIST! Since there is ONLY ONE RACE. There is INTER ETHNIC or PEOPLE GROUP marriage.
The marital union specifically forbidden by The LORD GOD is between those whose names are written in the LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE and those whose names are written in the GREAT WHITE THRONE judgment books!
The TRUE Body Of CHRIST must be focused on the absolute authority of the WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD. Instead it’s become increasingly worldly in accepting the religious and secular traditions and doctrines of men. Christian writer Warren Wiersbe stated, “He [ALMIGHTY GOD] created mankind “from one man” (Acts 17:36 NIV) so that all nations are made of the same stuff and have the same blood. The Greeks felt they were a special race different from other nations. But, Paul affirmed otherwise.” It’s ironic most Bible scholars and teachers over the centuries favor the Greek interpretations and translations of scripture versus the original Aramaic and Hebrew manuscripts.
Look at Revelation 7:9: “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.” This passage gives us a glimpse into how God will wrap up history and usher humankind into eternity. What a glorious picture painted in Revelation of people from every nation in heaven, worshiping God, standing together as brothers and sisters in Christ. God created and loves every nation, every person, and it is made abundantly clear in Scripture that ethnic animus is not compatible with Christianity.
There’s ONLY one race and that’s the race of ADAM or the human race. Our prayer for all people is what the LORD promises in Ezekiel 36:25-27, “I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.” Amen and Amen!
Finally, the acceptance of multiple “races” is grounded in the belief of evolution. The foundation of evolution is grounded in the notion ALMIGHTY GOD DOE NOT EXIST and ALL creation exists in and of itself via the BIG BANG theory. Therefore, anyone reading this article whose name is written in the Lambs Book Of Life, here’s a question? How can YOU continue to believe, proclaim, promote or support the LIE of multiple “races” and yet claim to be a child of the ALMIGHTY SOVEREIGN LORD?

We highly recommend the following resources by Ken Ham
Check out these excellent resources click the following link…
One Race, One Blood reveals the origins of the horrors of discrimination, the biblical truth of “interracial” marriage, as well as the proof revealed in the Bible that God created only one race.
Apologetics powerhouse Ken Ham provides children important insight and a biblical foundation that combat the evolutionary nonsense of multiple human races.
Racial [Ethnic] prejudice is easily stoked to red-hot levels in today’s culture, but it originates in the darkness of man’s fallen heart. Sadly, the underlying idea of evolution fuels racism more effectively than biased activists and articulate politicians.
Understanding what happened at the Tower of Babel is key to understanding the origin of nations, “races,” prejudice, and much more! Ken discusses Charles Darwin’s destructive teaching regarding skin color, facial features, etc.
Cultures in Chaos & A Conflicted Church. We live in a nation divided across political, ethnic, cultural, and even spiritual lines. Can the church regain a position of influence among young people seeking “truth” while rejecting God’s Word?
