I am just curious about this subject. Are there or are there not scriptures in the Bible that talk about I guess I should say marrying outside of one's own race? In the past, I have had my minister from the church I used to attend tell me that its a no-no but did not give any scriptures as to where I could find it. I now attend a different church in which I have attended for many years now. We got a new minister a few years back and can't remember which minister it was, but one of them told me that it was not a no-no to marry outside of your own race but it is a no-no to marry outsideof your own religion. He also did not specify any scriptures. My oldest brother has married a woman who is origionally from Macedonia. Therefore, she is from a different religious background as well as a different ethnic background, although she has the same skin color as we do (white). My father has no problem with this. However, he is very much against specifically whites and blacks marrying because he says that the Bible says not to marry outside of your race but says that he does not know where in the Bible it talks about this. I have dated black guys in the past and obviously this is where this subject originally arose. I personally have no preferences of dating white, black, Spanish, whatever. As long as they area good person, treats me good, has their faith in the Lord, it does not matter to me what race they are. However, if this is considered a sin in the Lord's eyes, then I may need to reevaluate that. Having not knowing yet and just basing it off of what I do know...I believe that the Lord does not see us as different races but just considers all of us as one race which is the human race and sees us all as his children. Therefore, I would rather go with the later minister in that its ok to marry outside of your own race but not your religion. Its just whether or not the two of you and the relationship can handle the challenges in which the general public throws at you as a multi-racial couple. Any feedback on this subject? Any scriptures on this subject?
