    What does the Bible say about interracial marriages
  • Ann - in Reply
    I believe God sees the heart and soul of people, not the color of their skin. I've heard that interacial marriages can be difficult because of the bigotry of people but I don't think that is so much of a problem today, although I'm not involved in one so I could be wrong about that but, of course, God isn't a bigot so I don't believe it is unscriptual.

    Dear MaryAnn

    Moses was married to an Ethiopian black woman.

    Numbers 12:1

    "And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman."

    Mose's siblings were punished by God for their rebuke of Moses.

    You'll probably get lots of replies, I hope mine will be helpful.

    In ancient Israel, God told them not to intermarry with infidels; unbelievers. The reason is one mate may forbid the other to attend Church; or force them to attend a non-Christian church.

    Race isn't the issue as long as both persons are Believers; as in Christians. Who honor God in the home and in their Church. Teaching their children about God and Jesus.

    Kids are raising themselves today, because the parents are trying to keep a roof over their heads and food in the fridge. God is LOVE. If we put God first, He will protect you.

    Deuteronomy 11:21

    That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

    Deuteronomy 11:19

    And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    Deuteronomy 30:19

    I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed (children) may live.

    14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

    15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

    17 But if thine heart TURN AWAY, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

    18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

    19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy SEED (children) may live.

    Mishael, blessings on you
