Protestant views on interracial dating
Black women must fight to ignore the lies of the world and seek the truth in God's Word about who we really are: his beloved daughters made beautiful through Jesus.
Those who choose to attend a predominantly white church add another challenge for themselves, in essence choosing to remain single for some time.
Our marriage "works" because we have sought to understand what the Lord says about our personhood and identity. God gives us a glimpse of his stance on this issue as he responds to Miriam and Aaron for confronting Moses for marrying a Cushite (Ethiopian) woman. The Lord didn't have to include that account in Scripture.A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong.When selecting a mate, a Christian should first find out if the potential spouse is born again by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3–5).Faith in Christ, not skin color, is the biblical standard for choosing a spouse.
What I found interesting about the research on segregated churches breeding segregated lives is they determined that those who pray and read the Bible more often were more likely to date outside their race. God doesn't simply rebuke the two and send them on their way, he punishes them. I think it says something significant about his character and about the topic of interracial marriage. Jesus paid the price we could never pay for the sin we commit every day. Miriam's skin was turned "leprous, like snow." Her punishment was directly related to her sinful prejudice against the dark skin of the Cushite people.
