The only thing different is our skin color and cultural differences that every family has.

My boyfriend really is trying to look at God’s word to see what God teaches on the issue of interracial marriage, he’s listened to many good sermons on the topic, but he still feels ‘in his conscience’ like it may be wrong to marry someone from another ethnic background.

As a race, however, they are unique and different and have their own culture. He made them uniquely different and intended that these distinctions remain.

The Scripture teaches it is wrong to marry across races.

Here is an example from a letter that I got some years ago: “As individuals, they [blacks people] are precious souls for whom Christ died and whom we are to love and seek to win. Because I believe God made the races, separated them, and set the bounds of their habitation (Deuteronomy 32:8; Acts ).

Then the apostle Paul, rooted in that theology of creation, says astonishingly to these arrogant ethnocentric Athenians in Acts , “He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth.” And I think the point there, the implication in the context of these proud Greeks who boasted of their ethnic purity over against the barbarians, was that those barbarians out there are family. You are all part of one race, rooted in one great, great, great grandfather, and your arrogance of separation is sinful.

Being human in God’s image compared to any racial distinction is ten million to one in terms of importance. Being human in God’s image is ten million and any racial distinction is one when you talk about what is important in life. 2) Step two in the argument: In Jesus Christ, God is creating a new humanity — you might say a new race — and it is called the Christian race (1 Peter 2:9–10).

So, for those four reasons — and there are more — I think it is right to not simply permit or tolerate, but to celebrate the marriage of a godly, Christ-exalting man and woman who are marrying in the Lord across racial lines.
