Men and women in the Bible

 

 

6. Why are there people whose skin colour is different from ours? Is it because of a curse?

 

 

Concerning the origin of black people (for I suppose that when you speak of people whose skin colour is different from ours you refer to black people), I cannot give you any answer because the Bible does not speak of it. Some for instance, the Mormons teach that the first black was Cain because according to them the mark which God set on Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him, was the black skin (Genesis 4:15). I do not accept this teaching because it has no biblical basis.
