There is only one human race from every perspective: biological, historical, and in God’s Word, the Bible. For the past 500 years, Western society has been playing out a role in a drama written by the Enemy of our souls, the myth of the master race, and every act has been a tragedy. It is time to change the script. - Dave Unander, The Myth of Race
Whiteness, it turns out, is a very recent idea in the grand scheme of history, but a powerful one that was used to create categories and systems that would place value, economically and otherwise, on skin color and the groups of people who are either blessed or burdened by it. If race could be used indicated groups level of intelligence, its work ethic, its tendency to do wrong, than the majority culture could justify all types of bigotries discriminations. - John Perkins, One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race

- Repent and lament in grief
- Rejoice in hope

The image of God is much too rich for it to be fully realized in a single human being, however richly gifted that human being may be. It can only be somewhat unfolded in its depth and riches in a humanity counting billions of members. - Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics: God and Creation
