For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong.Anyone who forbids interracial marriage is doing so without biblical authority.We should base ideas of compatibility on the facts of a situation not on the color of the people. There are same-race couples that are less compatible than interracial couples, because the issue is not race but sufficient spiritual union, common conviction, and similar expectations to make the marriage workable. (Racial Harmony and Interracial Marriage) With that being said, we know that one of the main things that can really make an interracial relationship/marriage difficult is a disapproving family.(The Ethics of Interracial Marriage) So yes, interracial marriages can potentially be harder, yet we have to avoid the conjecture that it absolutely will be harder as well as the notion that because it may be hard, it should be avoided. It can be physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually draining. How should you deal with a family that is rejecting you, or your significant other, based on ethnicity?A colorblind church and/or a Christian interracial marriage can be a powerful illustration of our equality in Christ.Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?
There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10).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.Will it be harder to be married to another race, and will it be harder for the kids? What I would like to provide here is biblical and practical advice on to how to engage a disapproving family, whether it is your own or your significant other’s, toward the ends of God being glorified, sin mortified, Satan horrified, and all involved edified. The term “enemy” may sound a bit harsh to some, but when a family is opposing you or your relationship simply because of the racial dynamic (while simultaneously making a relationship with a potential spouse more difficult), it’s hard to view them as anything else. Biblical love is the basis for everything I have to say here. The Scriptures call us to love that prevails and changes our current circumstances.Here are five biblical principles applied to engaging a disapproving family. Without love, you will simply be “a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1).
