What does the bible say about interracial dating
A yoke is used to harness two oxen together for a common purpose.If the oxen are unequally yoked, the result is disastrous.If we are really honest, in countries like America, the main reason some Christians forbid “interracial” marriage is not scriptural. If close relations were to marry today, there would be big problems.They forbid “interracial marriage” because of preconceived prejudices. The next generation had the choice between siblings and cousins, and then siblings and cousins and first cousins, etc. When those same mistakes get together, there is an increased likelihood of deformities and major problems in the offspring.In Christ, any separation between people is broken down.As Christians, we are one in Christ and thus have a common purpose—to live for Him who made us. Sadly, there are some Christian homes where the parents are more concerned about their children not marrying someone from another supposed biological “race” than whether or not they are marrying a fellow believer (of the same spiritual “race”).But does the Word of God really condemn such mixes?Is there ultimately any such thing as “interracial marriage”?
That way the Christian worldview will permeate the culture.
The family is the first and most fundamental of all human institutions that God ordained in Scripture.
It’s really the educational unit of the nation, used by God to transmit the knowledge of the Lord from one generation to the next.
(Besides, there has been so much mixing of people groups over the years that it would be impossible for many human beings today to trace their lineage back to know for certain from which group they are descended! I find a lot of Christians think you can’t marry your relative. The further mistakes in your genes and that your mate’s healthy genes will cover for your mutant ones!
I’ve got news for you: If you don’t marry your relative, you don’t marry a human—then you’ve got a really big problem! In fact, you’re even related to me, whether you like it or not! Once you get out there beyond your third and fourth cousins, you have a very good chance of problem genes not being expressed in a major way.
Rather than working together, teams of unequally yoked oxen will fight against each other, try to go in different directions, and make a mess of the work at hand.
