Scripture on interracial dating

Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church in Pike County, KY recently voted nine to six in favor of denying church membership to interracial couples.

There are many Scriptures used by those against interracial marriage (such as Genesis 6:2-3; Exodus -16; Joshua -13; Judges 3:6-7; 1Kings 11:2; Ezra 9:1-2; Nehemiah -27).

The problem is that all of these Scriptures come from the Old Testament as God commanded Israel to be a nation set apart from other nations.

In other words, God doesn’t care if different races intermarry.

However, He does care if Christians intermarry with non-Christians.

God was concerned about His people worshiping the gods of other nations, not about them marrying persons who were a different race than they were.

Every nation or race God commanded the Israelites not to marry worshiped other gods.

humans are more fearfully and more wonderfully made than others.
