God Have Comments On Races
Does the Bible have anything to say about interracial relationships and marriages? I don't have a problem with it at all and since God created everyone of us regardless of color or race I don't see a problem with it but does God have anything to say about this?

Moses's wife was from another race and some of his friends were punished for criticizing his interracial marriage.Then there was Ruth who also intermarried. From the Bible it is clear that if both are believers it is not wrong! Even so, prayer should lead couple to carefully consider impact of such on the children who often end up belonging to neither race.

Leon, are you talking William Branham/Oneness Pentecostal beliefs about interracial marriage?

I do not find any where in the Bible that says God is prejudice about race. I do know He says not to be unequally yoked with those that are not of the Christian way.

The term "race" is used four times in the Bible only to describe an atheletic event that has spiritual ramifications.
God uses the word "nations" to show diversity within the one human family (Gen. 3:20).
In Deut. 7 (specifically, 3-4) God tells us "His reason" for an interNATIONal prohibition on marriage outside of the NATION Israel. That prohibition is still in force today for nations of people who believe, trust & obey the Word of God, i.e., 2 Cor. 6:14.

God told the israelites to not marry with other races not because interracial relationships are wrong, but because most of the other nations and races around them at that time were pagan, and He didn't want them to lead His people astray. that goes with "be not unequally yoked" it's not about race, it's about faith.

In the eyes of God, there is only one race in Christ...the new creation race...and that is apart from any color of flesh.

In the O.T. the Israelites were not suppose to intermarry with the heathen nations around them, because God said it would cause them to leave their true God and instead worship the heathen idols. And sure enough that's what happened time and again to them. So too in the N.T. Christians are not suppose to marry nonChristians for the same reason. Other then that, interracial marriages are worthy. i see virtues in all races.

Relationships - most important - salvation. Galatians 3:26-29 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's then you are Abrahams's seed and heirs according to the promise. We learn that believers will come from everywhere. 2 Corinthians 6:14a Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.

The only mixed marriages that God disapproves of (and the bible makes this clear) are marriages between a believer and a non-believer. "Be ye not unequally yoked to unbelievers".
