The debate between evolution and creation as it relates to racism has been a long-standing discussion within the Christian community. In recent years, wokeism has gained more traction in mainstream society, bringing an increased focus on the origin of race and racism.

The Bible speaks clearly and firmly against racism. It is an affront to God’s will, which is that all people should be treated with love and respect regardless of their race or ethnicity. Galatians tells us there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, or male nor female because we are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ultimately, the Bible encourages us to show love and compassion towards others regardless of their racial identity. But what’s the reality? John Mackay from Creation Research recently joined us on 20Twenty to share his thoughts on how the emergence of wokeism has affected the racism debate.

John believes one of the biggest effects of wokeism is, if there is no God, there’s no right or wrong. ‘Who’s racist?’ says John. ‘Who’s not? You can describe anyone you want to as a white supremacist or a racist and get them cancelled in our society today.’

John emphasizes the importance of having faith in our beliefs and understanding how creation-evolution fits into scripture. It’s an essential component to truly delving deeper into what we believe.

‘In reality there are no black or white people in Genesis 1 and 2,’ says John. ‘The life is in the blood. So Adam could not have been black and he could not have been white.’

‘The account of Creation in Genesis tells us that God created all people equal, and thus racism is a sin.’
