The Bible vs. RacialismAn analysis of what Scripture really says about race
For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
(I Peter 4:17)
How can we go to the heathen and bring them the transforming Gospel of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ when we tolerate such vileness and division in our midst, as racism breeds?
We at Reconstructionist Radio along with Joel McDurmon of American Vision have exposed two teachers who are looked at as leaders within certain Christian Reconstructionist circles, Peter Hammond and John Weaver, for their sinful views on race. We have called on these men to recant and repent of their calling inter-ethnic marriage a betrayal of God, and adultery in the sight of God (amongst other things).
Below we have compiled all of the relevant links to these two men.
It is our prayer that these men would repent and be restored to true unity within the ONE body of Christ instead of continuing to teach a heretical view of division within the body of Christ
What The Bible Teaches About Interracial Marriage and Reproduction Part I
What the Bible Teaches About Interracial Marriage and Reproduction Part II Bible Answers to Incorrect Assumptions
Do you realize … I believe it should be obvious to anyone who believes the Bible that God created the races. Had God desired only one race, He would not have created the other races. And if God had desired that we intermarry and amalgamate and become one, why would He have begun the other races to begin with? Very obviously it was not His desire that we intermarry. Because when you intermarry what you do then is basically destroy the races. You cannot maintain the differences.
One of the principles that is laid down very plainly in the book of Genesis, what God created is that everything was to bring forth fruit after its kind. Now that’s very simple. Now how in the world can you bring forth fruit after your kind if you intermarry? The answer is you can’t. You produce a different kind. Now let me just make a statement and then I want to show it to you from the Bible. You see the amalgamation of races is a form of adultery. You say “What?”, yes the amalgamation of the races is a form of adultery. The eighth commandment is “Thou shalt not commit adultery”. I want you to understand that adultery is far more than a sexual sin. It is that. But it is also a watering down, and a dissolution and destruction of a bond and/or a substance. Certainly, physical adultery involves sexual sin. But what is the great calamity of that sexual sin? It is destroying and dissolving the bond that exists between the husband and the wife. It also destroys the bond that exists between the parents and the children. It also destroys the bond that exists between the families. Do you see what I’m saying? So what happens is, it is a watering down.
Now, listen carefully to what our Founding Fathers said. “To secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and out posterity.” The question must be asked, How many Mexicans? How many Orientals? How many blacks and other races were present and participating in the execution of that document. What is the answer? None. Not one. Yes, there were blacks in the country, but they were slaves. Yes, there were Mexicans and there were Indians out in the Western frontier that had not yet been conquered or purchased, but none were at the founding of this nation. Now I’m not trying to sound racist, nor am I being racist. I’m simply, pointing out a fact, and here is the fact, this country was founded by White European Christians who wanted to establish a Christian culture. Not an African culture. Not a Oriental culture. Not a Muslim culture. Not a Mexican culture. But a Christian culture. And it was this Christian culture that was to be passed down to our posterity. Now what is happening in America? Are you listening? The exact same thing that happened in Israel. Interracial marriage, idolatry, and multi-culturalism.”
One quote in particular to note:
I have many friends of all races. However, to marry across the colour line would be to me to betray my parents and all of our ancestors, and my children and future generations. Most importantly I believe it would be a betrayal to Almighty God, who has set the boundaries between nations.
For your further study you may want to see a Bible study that I wrote on Unequally Yoked and an article by a missionary friend of ours on Intercultural Dating and Marriage. Although the Bible study deals primarily with the Scriptures forbidding marriage with unbelievers, you will see that many of the Scriptures are very specific about marriage with other nations as well.

The following is a direct quote from that interview. (Hint: don’t miss the pro-Hitler finale):
Host: “White people want strong leaders, and they want leaders that do what they say they are going to do.”
Peter Hammond: “Yeah.”
Host: “From what I can see, the only guy that we’ve had in the last hundred years who’s done that has been Adolph Hitler.”
PH: “That is why he is the most hated . . . oh . . . he’s the second-most hated person in the world. The person that the Jews hate the most is Jesus Christ. I mean, he gets blasphemed in how many Hollywood films morning, noon, and night. But Adolph Hitler has got to be the second-most hated person in all of history—by the Jews, that is—because their media puts so much effort into fighting Adolph Hitler, and depicting him in a real caricature without any regard to his real accomplishments.”
