Everything about inter-racial marriages in The Bible

Everything about inter-racial marriages in The Bible

Having in a romantic relationship or a deep emotional connection based on love and affection with a person of another racial group is classified quite simply as interracial dating.

Interracial dating is no different from any other kind of dating and does on many occasions lead to marriage and the bearing of multiracial children.

The Bible informs its readers that we are all of one blood (Acts 17: 26). We are all the descendants of Adam and Eve, and of Noah after them, therefore we are all members of a single race, universally known as humanity or the-human-race.

In the New Testament Christians are commanded not to marry unbelievers. Race is not an issue. The Holy Bible denounces marriages where one spouse worships God and the other is an active unbeliever or idol worshipper. When selecting a suitable companion for marriage Christians are urged not to accept or offer any preferential treatment based on race. The person’s good nature, faith in God, and Christ are the biblical standards for choosing a spouse.

Scripture in the New Testament forbids inter-religious marriages not interracial marriages.

The Old Testament Law (in Deuteronomy) commanded the Israelites not to engage in interracial marriage. The reasoning behind this instruction was based on the view that people of other races at the time engaged in idol worship. "For they will turn your sons away from following me…” The book of Exodus discloses that when Israel left Egypt, a mixed multitude of people moved with them and explains that a stranger may not eat of the Passover, however if the stranger converts to the faith, and in the case of many men, become circumcised (a symbol of spiritual conversion), the stranger shall then be accepted. “He shall be as a native of the land... One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger..." (Exodus 12: 48–49).

It is also worthwhile to note that Moses, who was raised in Egypt, married Zipporah, a woman identified as an Ethiopian, a black woman (Numbers 12: 1). Zipporah was accepted because her religion was true, and her father Jethro worshipped the Christian God.
