What God Said About Interracial Marriages.
A visitor of GodSaidManSaid sent in the following question, which is a question fueled by many heated discussions.
The question is as follows:
I want to know what is said Biblically about interracial marriage, between Caucasian, middle eastern, Filipino, African American, etc. Can you please advise? Thank you.
The Word of God has the answer.
GOD SAID that He created Adam and Eve and from them, all mankind on earth came to be. From that original root came the yellow, white, black, and red races and all variant nationalities that exist today. We are called mankind—simply, a kind that is called man. It should be noted that God doesn’t make any negative statement about interracial marriages.
MAN SAID: Man has said many things concerning interracial marriages, with most being very negative. Some pretend to quote Scriptures to support their position. But generally man’s disregard for God’s Word results in a continued walk in darkness.
Now THE RECORD: Why does so much angst exist concerning interracial marriages? The basic answer typically boils down to bigotry.
Bigotry existed for thousands of years, but Charles Darwin gave it a major boost. This following quote is found on this web site in the subject titled, “Why is the Black Man Black?” It reads:
Psalms 120:1-7 (KJV) In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
