Our God is a loving God! He is righteous and just and equitable for all people. Jesus died for everyone in the world..."For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16). All races on our planet are descended from Adam and Eve. To say that one race is superior or inferior is to reject the Bible, God's holy word. He created all people to be brothers and sisters in Him. It is sin, (the awful thing that dwells within us), that causes people to judge one another and to disobey God. Jesus warned us not to judge..."Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." (Matthew 7:1-2). Need I point out that the root word of prejudice is judge.

Prejudice is..

1.a. An adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts. b. A preconceived preference or idea.

2. The act or state of holding unreasonable preconceived judgments or convictions.

3. Irrational suspicion or hatred of a particular group, race, or religion.

4. Detriment or injury caused to a person by the preconceived, unfavorable conviction of another or others. (American Heritage Dictionary)

Sometimes we must put off what we have been taught by our parents and peers. Prejudice is a trait that the Devil tries to hand down from one generation to the next. God is your Father! And it is very clear from the following Bible verses that God does not like prejudice!
