What does the Bible say about race?

June 23, 2020

Any serious biblical study of race or ethnicity should start in Genesis 1. The Bible does not start off with the creation of a special or privileged race of people. When the first human being is created he is simply called Adam, which is Hebrew for “humankind.”

From the Ouachitonian: Slaton Teague

Serving as a student minister gave Slaton Teague the opportunity to live out God’s will for his life. A senior Christian studies major with an emphasis in Biblical studies and Christian ministry from White Oak, Texas, Teague spent the past three years pouring into students as an intern, associate pastor and now a student pastor. His time at Ouachita shaped him into a lifelong learner as he continued to build relationships with students.

June 19, 2019

When I was 14 years old, I knew I had to go to a place that I had only just heard of: Ouachita Baptist University. Over the course of a summer, I realized I felt called to go into ministry. I only knew a few others who shared my call, and each one of them desired to go to “OBU.” I saw spiritual leader after spiritual leader attend Ouachita, and my own path was made clear. While my academic numbers made any college in the country an option, my heart only chose one: Ouachita.

Faculty profile: Barbara Pemberton - Interdisciplinary focus, religious lens

May 15, 2019

If you were to play two truths and a lie with Dr. Barbara Pemberton, you would probably lose. Facts about her you would guess are untrue would turn out to be the truth – like how she once took a group of Ouachita students to Saudi Arabia, where she and her husband lived for a time. Or how she belongs to the International Society for the Study of New Religions. Or how her latest religious analysis is a book review on drone metal and spirituality.
