An important Bible verse about understanding interracial marriage is 2 Corinthians : "Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers." That last word, "unbelievers" is of key importance.A Christian should not marry a non-Christian no matter how kind and good they are. Deuteronomy 7:1-6 tells the Israelites to destroy all the inhabitants of the Canaan land and not to intermarry with them because they would "turn your sons away from following Me, that they may serve other gods." The same key concern of 2 Corinthians is again expressed here.
Non-Christians have a different perspective on dating.
You see the magazines, TV shows, and movies that tell you how you’re young, and you should date a lot of people before you get married.
We get so many questions about dating, relationships, girlfriends and boyfriends, physical intimacy, and the whole list of awkward sex questions.
And that's totally okay by us because we're glad you're looking for biblical answers to these questions rather than trying to figure out the whole dating thing on your own or basing your actions on what the world tells you to do (2 Peter ).
A loving Christian couple may accommodate well to many kinds of differences between themselves.
However, there are cultural contexts where interracial marriage poses significant barriers to acceptance of the marriage and/or the children of the marriage.Type the word “dating” into your bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book of the bible dedicated to the topic, or at least even a chapter.But though Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are still some topics that are left untouched when it comes to finding a biblical perspective.The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.Finding a mate functioned a lot more like a bartering system than dinner and a movie.The harlot, Rahab, also of another nation, is included in the lineage of Christ as recorded in Matthew 1.
