Question: "What does the Bible say about interracial marriage?" Answer: The Old Testament Law commanded the Israelites not to engage in interracial marriage (Deuteronomy 7:3–4).In His Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke -37), Jesus told of a Samaritan man who was kind to a Jewish man even thought they were enemies of different religions, nationalities and racial backgrounds.At the end, Jesus tells us, " You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.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.There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.As Martin Luther King, Jr., noted, a person should be judged by his or her character, not by skin color.There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10).He is clear on whom you should date and why you should date.When it comes to Christian dating, you live according to a different standard – God’s. There are some solid reasons why God asks us to live a certain way, and dating is no different.
Moses was married to a Cushite (Ethiopian) woman (Numbers 12:1-16), and God was angry with Aaron and Miriam for criticizing that marriage.
