Question: What tribe did the Caucasian race come from? Why in America do they have all the good jobs and homes, and make the rules. Were they part of some blessing from the Bible? Why are they the rulers of the land?

Answer: It is generally believed that the three major races of man came from the three sons of Noah. The Caucasians were descendents of Japheth who settled in the Caucasus Mountains, which run from northern Iran into southern Russia.

America certainly has many good jobs and nice homes, but she does not have them all. In fact, of the nations of the world, American does not have the highest standard of living. According to the United Nations, there are eleven nations with a higher standard of living than America. Nevertheless, America is an very prosperous nation, which we believe is due to many natural resources and a strong work ethic. We also believe that from the beginning, most Americans have practiced some form of the Christian faith and lived by the principles of the Judeo-Christian Ethic. In fact, many of these principles are embedded in our laws. As the Proverbs 14:34 says, 'Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.'
