A visitor writes,

"In the Bible is there a verse stating white people won't be allowed in heaven?"

 

In the Bible, no one other than Jesus Christ goes to heaven.

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

The doctrine that we go to heaven when we die is completely false.

It is derived from pagan philosophy, not from the Bible.

When we die, we remain unconscious in the grave awaiting the day when Jesus Christ will return from heaven to raise and judge the dead.

John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation (condemnation).

The day of resurrection to judgment has been appointed by God and is yet in the future.

Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

At the judgment, people will not be judged on the colour of their skin, but upon whether they have believed and obeyed the gospel preached by Jesus Christ and his apostles.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned (condemned).

May I suggest that you read: ‘Heaven and Hell’ here:

And ‘The Kingdom of God on Earth’ here:

I hope you find this helpful.
