A Fundamental Reason Why We Need To Say ‘‘No” To Gender, Ethnic, Racial & Tribal Discriminations

Two sons were born to Eber: One was named Peleg, because in his time THE EARTH WAS DIVIDED; his brother was named Joktan. Joktan was the father of

Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah and Jobab.

All these were sons of Joktan.

The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country.

 These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.

 These are the clans of Noah’s sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the NATIONS spread Out over the earth after the flood.

Gen. 10:21-32 NIV

 

From the truth (scripture) above, the Earth was divided by God at a time of the world’s history; it was shared that, it was a time when a guy (Peleg), was born to his mother. (Well, it was recorded in this way because, in the olden days, certain events were used in determining various times of history).

However, the point here is that, the earth here was one mass, with all its inhabitants having one language (one culture): it wasn’t scattered and divided as we’re seeing now.

This however suggests that, God, who had created the whole world, intended that we’ll dwell together on it as one family, with one culture. However, due to an irresponsible character, God had to separate the human race, made of one blood, into groups, leading to temporal different races with different cultures, a reason why there are in separated continents, different races, as well as the creation of different groups and tribes, who currently exhibit different cultures at different borders of the world.

Yet, as you can witness, from the beginning, it wasn’t so.

Actually, we seem to have been more connected to our present or current differences in this global village, than to our one connected past, leading to several social and economic issues, in our global village.

Whether we are blacks nor whites, we’re from that One Blood, that was dispersed to form many.

Whether we are Americans or Chinese, we’re brothers made from that same root. Whether ‘slave’ nor ‘free,’ we’re brothers. Finally, whether Slavic nor Hispanic, what difference does it make if the doctors see that one blood in us?

As one family (one blood), the Love we must have for each other must be more worth than the trillions we’re chasing after.

Having Trillions, but your neighbours are dying, doesn’t make you a respectable person. It shows that, you have not grasped the most important reason to live among brothers.

The world won’t be okay if everyone has money, but without a heart; but it will be okay, if everyone has a great heart, but just with very little to share.

That is the concept of One blood.

At the moment, some nations are fighting against other nations, as though they aren’t one, nor belong to each other, as the scripture had said. Some individuals, tribes, race, and even countries, for what ever differences they’re measuring themselves to be, are really fighting each other or at loggerheads with each, from ages to now, whereas they’re formed from One man (human blood).

From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands.

God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.

(Acts 17: 24: 26 BSB)

 

We’re not better off than the other, as we are brothers from the same one man, who was given the earth as a land.

This means, it is wrong to go to war with a sword, against each other.

So, you could see that, the earth being divided into continents, is an act of God, with the purpose of we serving Him in beautiful diversities, as God, the God of all bloods, knows that varieties are the spices of life.

‘‘We each know this, don’t we?’’

How can children from one home fight against each other: To God, our differences were not a reason to constantly fight nor compete with each other, but to complement each other, supporting the entire Universal Kingdom together, and supporting each other in our weaknesses, the strong becoming more helpful.

This is what will bring love in ourselves. This is what will bring the world, the peace it needs. This is what will bring us global security when we beat out the combating ammunitions into ploughshares, to till the ground and to feed our homes, making sure our blood brothers, are much satisfied.

We’re one; we’re of one brotherhood.

Let’s start acting upon this important historic mindset now, having care for others we do not yet know.

Let’s begin to realize this truth and begin to have a genuine love and concern for each other, whether they’re of different colours or races.

We must demonstrate this mentality, in your everyday walk. By this intention, we want peace and security with every living man. From today, try to have love others as a half-brother or as a half-sister.

Thank you, man.
