Bible says dating different races

21 Mar

The early ministry of the apostles was hindered to the extent that they failed to see that Gentiles were to be accepted into the body of Christ, without being converted to Judaism first (Acts , 28; 11:2-3, 8).But God himself confirmed this fact through mighty works among the Gentiles (Acts 10:3, 11-13, 19-20, 22b, 30-33, 44-46; 11:5-10, 13, 15-17).Sometime after Adam and Eve fell, God established a covenant with Abraham.This covenant was intended to be international in scope—irrespective of cultural boundaries or skin color, that through Abraham's offspring (“seed”) all the nations of the Earth would be blessed (Genesis 12:1-4).The prophets of the Old Testament longed for the time when both Gentiles and Jews would stream unto the Lord, when the Messiah would be a light unto the Gentiles as well as the Jews, when God would pour out his Spirit on all peoples (cf.Psalm 2:7-8; -28; Isaiah 2:1ff.; 42:6; 49:6; Joel ff.) These hopes and promises have been fulfilled in Christ Jesus.Often, intercultural marriages, more than interracial marriages (for not all people from different cultures differ in the color of their skin), encounter greater difficulties within the relationship.

Oh, and if you recall, in a heavenly vision, the apostle John was able to see clearly the plan of God fulfilled.The beauty of God's judgment is that he is “no respecter of persons” (Acts ), and thus we are to judge the same way (1 Timothy ; James ).You see, God has created all things, including the color of our skin (Genesis 1-2).In fact, if you think about it, many forms we fill out give us the option to note whether we are “Black,” “White,” “Hispanic,” “Asian,” and “Other.” I guess that if you are the child of an interracial marriage (and therefore, multiracial), you are “Other” (a strange way to label people).Thirdly, people from differing cultures have unusual differences to overcome.
