In Spanish, Portuguese, and French, the words used to describe the mixing of races are mestizaje, mestiçagem and métissage.These words, much older than the term miscegenation, are derived from the Late Latin mixticius for "mixed", which is also the root of the Spanish word mestizo.Pew's February Political Typology Poll asked people about recent trends in American society.Pew asked if "more people of different races marrying each other" was good or bad society.If “younger evangelicals” really need to be informed about fundamentalism in the early twentieth-century, let’s give them the whole truth. For instance, we are living in the midst of race turmoil all over the world today. A born-again white man and a born-again colored man can settle any differences they have. But now a world of outside agitation has been started, and people are coming in the name of piety, but it is a false piety, and are endeavoring to disturb God’s established order; and we are having turmoil all over America. You can go to any city in the country and find the poor people living in a certain section there. But things are not going to be made right by trying to overthrow God’s established order. The situation is not a perfect situation for the white folks or the colored folks or for anybody else; but we have never had a perfect situation in this world since Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. We are one in Christ; but let us remember that the God Who made of one blood all nations also fixed the boundaries of their habitations. God chose Israel; and through the loins of Israel, He brought us the Messiah. You will find the Jew in London, the Jew in New York, the Jew in San Francisco, the Jew in Tokyo, the Jew in Hong Kong. I am for them, and I am for their homeland and for their Government. I know Jesus Christ was the Son of God; and I know that when Jesus Christ comes back again, He will be the King of the Jews and will be accepted and a nation will be born in a day. If we had as many Chinese and Japanese as we have colored people in the South, we would run into the same problem; but we have no Oriental problem here in the South.
Among religious groups, evangelicals remain the most opposed to interracial marriage, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press (Pew).The survey found that 27 percent of Americans overall said more interracial marriage was good for society, compared to 17 percent ...Because of the term's historical use in contexts that typically implied disapproval, more unambiguously neutral terms such as interracial, interethnic, or cross-cultural are more common in contemporary usage.It proves the inadequacy of the new administration’s “statement of regret” in 2008 (Newest iteration: “Statement About Race“). In recent years there has been a subtle, Satanic effort to undermined people’s faith in the Bible; and the devil has elf the race along until men have put their own opinion above the Word of God. When I was a boy in Southeast Alabama, we lived in what was called the white section of the State. The slaves were in the western part and in the midsection of the State. Any man who would mistreat a colored man would mistreat a white man. If you are a Christian white person or a Christian colored person, you will treat each other right. But they went ahead, and the commercial element was dominant; and people bought slaves and sold them. They have gone over to modernism, and they are leading the white people astray at the same time; and they are leading colored Christians astray. He gave the Chinese something that he did not give the Japanese. God chose them; and God segregated them, not because they were inferior but because He had a purpose for that race. .” The Jews are back in Palestine with a Government today. God made of one blood all nations, but He also drew the boundary lines between races.And it should put to rest several myths about Bob Jones Sr. This one was most recently rehearsed: after 1938, Bob Jones stayed out of politics since he advised Billy Graham to do the same. You will find that practically all the troubles we are having today have come out of the fact that men in many instances have ceased to believe in an authoritative Bible. Individually, Christian people in the South–white and black–through the years have been able to work together and to understand each other. Down in Southeast Alabama there were some slaves but not many; but they had the reconstruction days–hard days–and the time came along when people were having a hard time. If he is mean enough to mistreat one man, he is mean enough to mistreat another. The colored people in the South today are better off than they are anywhere else in the world. We Christians are children of God by faith in Jesus Christ. But every good, substantial, Bible-believing, intelligent, orthodox Christian can read the Word of God and know that what is happening in the South now is not of God. God Almighty had a purpose for the Jewish race; and for that purpose to be carried out, He had to separated them from among the nations of the earth. They have been scattered over the face of the earth, and they have kept their racial identity through the years. I believe that the Covenant that God made with Abraham holds good until this day, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee. God scattered them, but He brought them back to their homeland. Of course, in America we do not have a serious problem with the Orient.Some groups in South America, however, consider the use of the word mestizo offensive because it was used during the times of the colony to refer specifically to the mixing between the conquistadores and the indigenous people.Today, the mixes among races and ethnicities are diverse, so it is considered preferable to use the term "mixed-race" or simply "mixed" (mezcla).grew increasingly concerned about the secularization of higher education and the influence of religious liberalism in denominational colleges.Children of church members were attending college, only to reject the faith of their parents.Jones later recalled that in 1924, his friend William Jennings Bryan had leaned over to him at a Bible conference service in Winona Lake, Indiana, and said, "If schools and colleges do not quit teaching evolution as a fact, we are going to become a nation of atheists." While he himself was not a college graduate, Jones grew determined to found a college, and on September 12, 1927, he opened Bob Jones College in Panama City, with 88 students.Jones said that although he had been averse to naming the school after himself, his friends overcame his reluctance "with the argument that the school would be called by that name because of my connection with it, and to attempt to give it any other name would confuse the people." Bob Jones took no salary from the college and helped support the school with personal savings and income from his evangelistic campaigns. The Florida land boom had peaked in 1925, and a hurricane in September 1926 further reduced land values. Bob Jones College barely survived bankruptcy and its move to Cleveland, Tennessee in 1933.
