Frequently Asked Questions
1) Was there a pre-Adamic race? Yes. God created all the races on the sixth day (Genesis 1:24-31). He rested on the seventh and created the Adam, that He put in the garden of Eden on the eighth day. I base this on the fact that in Genesis 1:26, the word man does not have the definite article so it means mankind as a whole. In Genesis 2:7, the word man has the definite article and particle (eth-ha adham) and means the man Adam. Those of you that use the Companion Bible will see that it tells us that in Genesis 1:27 the word man does have the definite article and particle but I disagree. Also, Genesis 1:27 mankind was created and in Genesis 2:7 Adam was formed.
V27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
Created 1254 bara' (baw-raw'); a primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes): -choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat).
V7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

2) Are we all descendants of Adam and Eve? No. All the races were created on the sixth day.
3) Why is Eve called the mother of all living? She is called the mother of all living because it was through her offspring that Jesus Christ was born and we can only have eternal life through Him. Not because we are all descendants of Adam and Eve.
4) What race are the Adamic people from? Adamic people are from the caucasian race. He did not start the caucasian race as all the races were created on the sixth day. See also question one on this topic. For the people that might think this makes the caucasian race or the Adamic people better than the other races, see question five on this topic.
Adam 119 'adam (aw-dam'); to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy.
5) Are Adam's descendants better than the other races? No. God created all the races on the sixth day (Genesis 1:24-31) and in verse 31 it tells us that God saw every thing He made and it was very good. No matter what race of people you happen to be, you are a child of the Living God and He loves you! In Acts 10:34-35 it tells us that God is no respecter of persons.
