BIBLE STUDY MANUALS: INTERRACIAL DATING AND MARRIAGE - A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
As I read through Scripture, I do not find that it either supports or condemns interracial dating or marriage. Certainly, the Old Testament law did not approve of . Did God warn them not to indulge in interracial marriage with all the nations Some who study the topics of interracial dating and marriage often overlook the. Last week I talked about how interracial dating can go wrong by citing a certain website that is designed exclusively for those desiring only interracial.
Bob Jones University does, however, have a rule prohibiting interracial dating among its students.
God has separated people for His own purpose. Furthermore, to what degree should fellowship be prohibited for the same separatist reasons; re: To be consistent this should lead to total separation, maybe even separate university campuses for each racial group.
One has to be consistent with the separatist goal in mind if it is to be followed at all. So this opens up a whole bag of worms.
Finally, the emphasis on banning interracial relationships is wrong because more pressing matters such as growing in the Word, going to church, staying in fellowship with God, making sure you are equally yoked all come before racial considerations] He has made people different from one another and intends for those differences to remain. Furthermore, racial differences have blended over the ages as permitted by the sovereignty of God. God's will not being specifically stated on this issue, it may be within His will and not against it on a case by case basis - re: Nevertheless this will be accomplished shortly in accordance with God's sovereign plan not man's.
Men of like races have conflicted as much as men of different races.
God permitted interacial marriages in the past without condemnation, not the least of which is that of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba as indicated in detail in the Song of Solomon - without mention of any condemnation; Abraham and Keturah; Gen 25 ; Moses and Zipporah, Ex 2: Every effort in world history to bring the world together has demonstrated man's self-reliance and his unwillingness to remain as God ordains.
Often separation to gain unity and strength amongst those of like races and then conquering or eradicating militarily is the strategy which will be what occurs in the end times] Although there is no verse in the Bible that dogmatically says that races should not intermarry, the whole plan of God as He has dealt with the races down through the ages indicates that interracial marriage is not best for man.

We do believe we see principles, not specific verses, to give us direction for the avoidance of it. So if there are no verses relative to this situation then there are no principles. The only way of salvation is that we trust and believe in Christ and what He did on the cross for us. Mark Andrew August 15, at 2: Again as a white and my girlfriend being black and being a conservative republican, I could not appreciate how those people would say that because I did not appreciate that they would be giving every conservative republican a bad name because I knew they are non-whites who are also conservative republicans.
I have read a lot of cases of hate crimes against interracial couples, like on in California where an interracial couple who were both 25 who happened to be a Caucasian male and his girlfriend who was African-American were just minding their own business and when another Caucasian male named Matthew Shumacher said racist stuff at them and attacked them and as it turned out Matthew Shumacher was convicted felon and a member of a California based Neo-Nazi skinhead gang.
I cannot understand why groups like the Neo-Nazi skinheads, the Aryan Brotherhood, or even the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas could admire Adolf Hitler, or any person would admire Adolf Hitler, a man who destroyed his country, murdered millions of people and then killed himself to avoid capture by the allies, and yet the Neo-Nazis declare that he is an immortal leader of the white race when he was never immortal because he was a genocidal madman.
Jah September 25, at 9: Both were One race: With that said, there is no Old Testament scriptures to use to attest to interracial marriages between the Black Children of Israel and the White Children of the Gentile Nations, for the Shemites had no dealings with Caucasians until the time of Rome. Now after Rome, we know the descendants of the Children of Israel was exiled and scattered to the four corners of the Earth due to our forefathers breaking the Covenant with the Most High.
And there, the Children of Israel have been inflicted according to the Curses of Deuteronomy So, in regards to interracial marriage, do you think Yah God will smile down on Black Israelites mating and marrying the Oppressors of His people when Yah God will destroy these nations that had a hand in our scattering?

What Does the Bible Say About Interracial Dating and Marriage?
Does this Jewish law given specifically to Israel apply to those who are not Jewish? Is there anything in the New and better Covenant as taught in the New Testament that prohibits different people of color from marrying one another? Race is just a man-created word but as for God restricting Israel from marrying people of other nations, this was all about marrying pagans who were not worshipping the One, True God.
If an African-American marries an Anglo-Saxon whitethere is nothing sin in this as long as both are believers in Christ, do you agree?
