  • It is clear that all humans are not equal by measure of physical, mental or other characteristic, ability or talent. We are all different. A Biblical perspective on the question: 1 Samuel 16:7 reads in part "The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." I am convinced that the "heart" (spirit? soul?) of a person is of inestimable worth before God and that skin color, height, weight, talent, wealth, etc. are all inconsequential by comparison. I am likewise convinced that God wants us to value each other. Philippians 2:3 instructs: "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves." I think this is the essence of Christian humility. Colossians 3 teaches "Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free." This with the passages above may be the heart of the "all men are created equal" doctrine.
  • The differences in skin colors are simply genetic variations that have developed over time as people groups have become isolated from one another, largely as a result of the confusion of languages at the Tower of Babel. That was a result of judgement on sin. So we should say that it is sin has caused us to have different skin colors. It is also sin that causes discrimination on the basis if skin color. Skin colors, or other superficial characteristics, have nothing to do with equality in the eyes of God, and should not in the eyes of men. See www.onehumanrace.com
  • Your question assumes the thoes wiith different skin colors are not equel. Go back to the drawing board>
  • Skin color doesnt mean anything. He looks at the inside not the outside! everything and every one and every color is equal to him. And No one color is better than the other. were just different. and different isnt always bad.
  • This argument has been used by Catholics and Arabs as reason to partake in slavery, and the Slave Trade claimed hundreds of millions of lives. If God's followers can be so cruel, is there really a God in the first place?
  • actually africans skins are darker from being out in the sun all day so their skin is tanned because they adaptd to there habitat, like caucasions are form the caucaus mountain region where it is not as hot and skin would not get as tan
  • Does skin color mean someone is unequal though? Equal means we all have skin and we all have nice skin. Since one color is not better than the other, skin color cannot be something to judge equality.
  • This question is sort of absurd. It's like asking "Are blue and red unequal?"
  • The colour of a person's skin has nothing to do with their value or worth.
  • What has equality got to do with colour of skin?
  • Your question asks me to assume that a Deity created humans, and also created color variation in human skin color. This I will do, but I would like to make note that neither of these assumptions has been proven. Firstly, variation does not mean a difference in social, economic, political, and spiritual equality. Secondly, the variation is probably for the same reason as variation in eye color, hair color, height, etc. I have no idea why people find variation in skin color to be more significant than variations in color of other human features.
  • Changes in skin colour help us live in different climates. That's all it's supposed to do.
  • Because different coloured skins mean absolutely nothing at all.
  • Well, do you think that having different skin colors have anything to do with people be created equal. You must read the Bible to understand this question you posted. In Exodus, God realized that everyone was understanding everything because there was only one language, so this could mean that bad things can also happen. Therefore God created different languages so everyone can be different. This may be that everyone must realize man is created equal not by different skin colors or other races.
  • because like me he felt skin color has nothing to do with it
  • Equality has nothing to do with skin colour.
  • In God's eyes equality is not measured by skin color. This unfortunately is a defect common to humans. God created us all equally. It is us who insist differently.
  • Since when is worth or equality measured by the color of our skin? I'm pretty sure that wasn't what God intended, but thanks for your display of ignorance, bravo.
  • Why would different skin colors not be equal? That's just like saying that only almond shaped eyes are perfect and all others are not equal. Or only redheads are good, or large noses, or big feet, or tall people, or chest hair, or blue eyes. What ever happened to variety and spice to life. Are all flowers the same? Are all trees the same?
  • Skin color has nothing to do with being equal, that's just being different.
  • This question possesses the equal in imperception to the dubious, but infamous, "feminism". Society has been so falsely indoctrinated with the speech and language of [nonsense] feminism that it only thinks in its limited rigid terms now on ANY matter!!! So driven are we over the decades, by feminist language that we now muddle the rest of society's issues similarly. The problem posed by your Q is precisely the mistake of feminism: that to be "equal" means to be 'the same'!! It is precisely this misconception that has been the great downfall of the family unit, of our unemployment problems and of the economy generally. People are equal regardless of race, colour, creed or sex - at least, that is in God's sight. But none of them is the same! They are ALL different. So, too, the sexes! Fortunately. If they were all the same they would be valueless to each other!! Value lies in RARITY!! Hence, diamonds. Likewise, it is BECAUSE the sexes are so different, and possess entirely different abilities and roles in life that each holds such great & immense value to the other.
  • How is anyone not equal because thier skin is a different color? Whatever creation force made us did make us equal. They also gave us free will. People decided that such and such a skin color should not be treated the same as another... and it is wrong. People did that, not "G-D". Whatever creationary force also gave us different eye colors, different hair types and colors, different heights, different sizes of different parts, different likes and dislikes, different weights, different levels of intelligence... Humans chose skin color as a defining characteristic. People were given the ability to be individuals... people choose to use it as a weapon.
  • Equality is not about skin colour... The question could be - If God created man to be equal, then why are some "valued" more by the majority?
  • Simple " GOD IS COLOR BLIND "
  • Interesting perspective; is skin color a sign of inequality? Equality from the standpoint of one who is viewing it from outside, means whatever that viewer chooses to consider it to mean. But if you consider genetic equality you will find all variations of man can procreate together. All variations have produced extraordinary individuals who have substantially exceeded the demonstrated capacity of all other peoples. All variations have learned to adapt to their environment in their own fashion. It has been demonstrated that you can take any single variation of humans and transplant that person into another variation and the transplanted person will thrive and succeed, not based on his/her variation of origin but upon the standards of the new culture into which they have been introduced. To me, this is true equality.
  • Because there is no god.
  • The fact that skin color is interpreted as a sign of inferiority is not God's problem but man's problem. Skin color has nor relevance in the eyes of God. To God we are all equal.
  • only choices will be judged
  • Is a chiwawa that much different than a rottweiler or are they all just dogs? To me they all smell like a dog!
  • God did not create man to be equal. Some are tall, some are short. Some are left-handed, some are right-handed. Some are men and some are women. Some are workaholics and some are sloths. Some have light skin and some have darks skin. Who are whatever created man, created him (her) to have diversity within a range. The average number of legs and eyes is close to two, of mouths, noses and testicles close to one. Skin colour is one of the variants.
  • equal to him. and not by skin color or personality. just who we..r. interesting question +3
  • They created Teletubbies with different colors and different kind of antennas because that would be much more fun.
  • Because God is not Henry Ford*. * "You can have any color car you want, as long as it's black."
  • judging a book by its cover hardly reveals the contents
  • why does it matter, maybe he is testing your loyalty
  • You should read "The Lathe of Heaven" by Ursula LeGuin. It may give you some answers.
  • People have different skin colours because of the different levels of melanin in their skin, which varies depending on their climate, geography, and mostly by their ancestry. A deity has nothing to do with it.
  • Do different skin colors mean we aren't equal?
  • God created us like that to give us a sense of character, a feeling of not being like everyone else. Think about it, what would the world be like if we were all the same, with the same mindset, color skin, and everything. This world would be very boring. We're meant to be who we are, and not to be what every else wants us to be. Thats one of the first lessons I learned.
  • God likes variety.
  • God really digs interracial porn
  • What the ....?? Is this person here for real?
  • Why does having a different skin colour from others make us unequal? We are still the same as human just diff shades of colours.
  • pretty boring otherwise? i believe that every Soul makes it's way through all of the skin colors throughout our many many lifetimes. Otherwise how could we ever understand?
  • because your an idiot and skin skin color does not equal value. dumbass.
  • Both presumptions of the question are unfounded: 1) God created man (people) 2) Equality is related to skin color So the question cannot be properly answered.
  • Did he really create man to be equal? Or is this just a good idea mentioned in the Gettysburg Address? And if he did to whom are we supposed to be equal to? Each other or him?
  • Skin color has nothing to do with equality...
  • Why do assume that skin colour means people are not equal? And perhaps God likes variety?
  • Because depending where in the world you live different shades of skin with more or less melatonin help protect it/or not from sun. It's from like caveman times, LOL!
  • identical appearances, would not make equal beings.
  • Skin color has nothing to do with equality. Man made inequality.
  • I believe that different skin colors is one way that God tests us in our ability or lack thereof, to love thy neighbor.
  • so which would be superior? those who are more vulnerable to vitamin d defficiency or those who are more vulnerable to skin cancer and sun burn?
  • They are all equal to Him. It's man that has driven this wedge between us.
  • What exactly does skin color have to do with equality?
  • People can be different and still equal.
  • Same reason we're not all skinny ginger accountants called Kevin. (Or any other clone population you care to imagine.)
  • different skin color doesn't mean we are unequal
  • Noah had 3 sons and 3 wives. They may have all had different skin colors. Skin colors have only made a difference in equality because of what man has done, not God. On a side note: Adaptation within species called micro-evolution is real. Marco-evolution (changing from one species to another is just a notion and has never been proven)is not science; it is merely a hypothesis that is unscientific*. There are many species of dogs, but they are all dogs. *Origin of species is more of a history question than a science question.
  • the quraan mentions that different skin colours and features are there so that 'man' may differentiate and identify their 'brothers and sisters' from different parts of the world. the western world has brainwashed to think that anybody different from ourselves are infereior human beings. that's the sad reality, yet we are all made of the same 'ingredients'.
