Finally, as the old saying goes, when you marry the person, you marry the whole family.

In America, as we continue to see the influx of people from all different cultures, who have all different colors of skin, it is imperative that we search the Scriptures so see how we should live.

Actually, the prohibitions were not strictly against Jewish-Gentile marriages as racial mixture, but against believer-unbeliever marriages (cf. Solomon was judged for marrying, not simply foreign women, but foreign women who believed in false gods.

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 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).

So, we have seen that there is no prohibition against interracial marriages in the Bible.

We have also seen that God's plan of salvation includes drawing his people from every nation, tribe, people and language.

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).
