A Christian couple contemplating marriage must prayerfully and carefully consider the impact their marriage will have within their cultural context, their family relationships, future children and the society in which they live.
A loving Christian couple may accommodate well to many kinds of differences between themselves.
A couple considering marriage needs to weigh many factors.
While a difference in skin color should not be ignored, it absolutely should not be the determining factor in whether a couple should marry.
All couples contemplating marriage need to give thoughtful consideration to a variety of practical issues, some of which may have no clear Biblical imperative.
You meet an amazing man and INSTANTLY fall for each other. He’s loving, affectionate, and you share things you’ve never shared with anyone else ever before.
Colossians makes it clear that from God's perspective all are one in Christ.
The Bible is clear that when both parties are believers (equally yoked), interracial marriage is not wrong.
In fact, the biblical perspective is that there is only one “race”—the human race, with everyone having descended from Adam and Eve.
When selecting a mate, a Christian should first find out if the potential spouse is born again by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3–5).
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.
Moses' wife was of another race and in Numbers 12:1-15 Aaron and Miriam were punished for criticizing this interracial marriage.
However, the reason for this command was not skin color or ethnicity. The reason God commanded against interracial marriage for the Jews was that people of other races were worshippers of false gods.
