One second you’re looking at young lovers holding hands, and then suddenly the deep dark part of your brain whispers, “I wonder if their kids are going to be white or black? Interracial relationships and marriages may be on the rise, but we still see them differently.Additionally, the person who’s actually in an interracial relationship is going to have a different set of experiences than a white, heterosexual cis couple, and that’s solely based on the fact that the entire universe can’t seem to get over it.Moses' wife was of another race and in Numbers 12:1-15 Aaron and Miriam were punished for criticizing this interracial marriage.The book of Ruth tells a delightful story of a foreigner who became part of the lineage of Christ.
I have tried to explain to my loved ones that skin color should not matter; that what is on the inside is what matters, and some of their concerns are about more than just skin color.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."
