Interracial dating in the bible
While a difference in skin color should not be ignored, it absolutely should not be the determining factor in whether a couple should marry.
An interracial couple may face discrimination and ridicule, and they should be prepared to respond to such prejudice in a biblical manner.
Interracial marriage is not a matter of right or wrong but of wisdom, discernment, and prayer.
A couple considering marriage needs to weigh many factors.
Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?
What should a Christian do if he or she is married to an unbeliever? Should Christians of different denominations date or marry?
The harlot, Rahab, also of another nation, is included in the lineage of Christ as recorded in Matthew 1.
Colossians makes it clear that from God's perspective all are one in Christ.A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong.When selecting a mate, a Christian should first find out if the potential spouse is born again by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3–5).Faith in Christ, not skin color, is the biblical standard for choosing a spouse.Anyone who forbids interracial marriage is doing so without biblical authority.
