Why are the ethnic groups different? What is the divine reason behind it?
- PubliusLv 71 month ago
I suppose you mean the different races? There doesn't have to be a reason. Genetic damage and inbreeding suffice.

For the same reason species are different. Biological evolution. God created living species in a way that allows them to remain well adapted to an ever-changing environment.

For the same reasons they add sprinkles in the midwest and jimmies in the eastern states.

Everything was divided making freewill and choice.

There is nothing that you can seem to be, they are different because they are contrary to their ideologies!

If they weren't, they wouldn't be ethnic groups. Only God can provide the reason for his divine wisdom.

If you are referring to racial groups, all are the same in God's eyes. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28. If you are referring to cultural practices, you can look to Genesis and the differences between Able and Cain. One loved God enough to obey Him and bring the offering God required (an animal sacrifice). The other brought the harvest of his own hands (the fruit of his garden), which was not what God required. Since Cain set off away from the Garden of Eden, his progeny have become increasingly rebellious against God. God did not make them that way, any more than God made Satan. God created them good, and gave them freedom of choice. The people themselves chose to disobey God, worship idols instead of God, and teach each other to hate other cultural and ethnic groups. Ethnic groups typically represent and teach specific beliefs and attitudes and behaviors. Often these practices clash with those of other groups/cultures. If they would all stop making up their own rules, and find out what God wants, and do that, there would be harmony in this world.

The difference is largely because of climate, and is , at heart, irrelevant. All are members of the same one human race.

Ethnic groups spiritually formed around their distinct inspirational sources, all of which were 'demons' other than the Jews, (descendants of Abraham). This was not always true. All tribes once equally acknowledged GOD through nature, (Romans 1:20), but the ancient patriarchs all rejected GOD's system of impartial treatment for the glories of war and conquest except for Abraham.
However, Christ has now welcomed in all ethnicities, birth classes and both genders equally into His New Covenant of universal forgiveness and cross-tribal brotherhood, (Galatians 3:28), giving equal access to the Holy Spirit and forgiving all previous 'demonic' affiliations, even using these 'cultures' and their knowledge in the service of His kingdom by supplying them all with new interpretations and applications for them that no longer lead to evil and social self-destruction.
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete." (2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

There's no supernatural reason for it. .as a tribe migrates away from the main gene pool they evolve to become compatible with their new environment..
