11. Does the Bible forbid interracial marriage?




The Bible does not forbid a believer with the white skin to marry a woman with the black skin, provided that the woman is in the Lord in that the Bible forbids believers to marry unbelievers, as it is written: “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16 - NKJV).

Therefore a believer must marry a woman who has a new heart, a heart circumcised by Christ, a heart sprinkled from an evil conscience (Hebrews 10:22). It doesn’t matter if her skin is black or yellow or red, what matters is that she is a daughter of God washed in the blood of the Lamb.
