(Genesis 1:24,25) And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. (25) And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
In the scripture we see God setting things into order and blessing creation with the ability to recreate itself and the key words that He uses is “after his kind.” This is a natural law that God set into motion to establish the goal that He desired in verse 22.
(Genesis 1:22) And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
The whole purpose was to make the earth fruitful, by multiplying all the creatures, fishes, and plants. The law states that they could only reproduce after his (their own) kind. This is why certain animals can not reproduce between their species. This is also great evidence to prove that it is Gods’ will that all men are created equal. There are issues certain people have over interracial marriages, that different races should not be married. Well if God would have never intended for Blacks, Whites, Asians, etc…, to live in peace with one another, be fruitful, and multiply, We as the human race would be unable to reproduce across the so called racial lines.
It is true that man has been able to cross certain lines in the realm of breeding. The funny thing is that usually when man tries to do the work of God, disaster is the end result. A good example of that is the Killer Bees that now affect the lives of many people in the southern states of the U.S. We have limited the greatness that the human race can achieve by looking at the outward appearance. That is why God tells us that He looks at the heart of a man. It does not matter what is on the outside as long as what is in the inside is in order. When God created man He said, “Lets make man after our kind.” We all have been made in the image of God, after His kind. This in itself crosses all the racial barriers. Anyone who disagrees has not the heart of God for God is love. Hate can be simply described as the lack of love. So lets put into practice the image of God within us all and love one another as He has loved us. Be Blessed.
