Black and white dating in the bible
My in-laws here in Maryland strongly believe that whites and blacks must not marry each other and they base this belief on the Christian Bible.For six years I have asked where in the Bible does it say this...today I finnaly got my answer.It assumed cultural preferences and unintentionally defines what being black means.There is nothing wrong with celebrating black love or even preferring a black spouse.People who claim not to have preferences are as comical as people who claim color-blindness.Yet the Christian’s preference must never trump godliness or degrade the beauty and value of other ethnicities.
When my wife and I announced our engagement, I received several comments applauding the fact that my soon-to-be bride was black.
I'm not supposed to let a girl feel insecure or weird on our first date? Those are the only emotions either of us will be feeling for a big chunk of the initial time we spend together.
Andersen gives examples of what his definition looks like in practice.
It fills in the gaps in Bob Jones III’s nonsensical defense of BJU’s racism on Larry King in 2000. I am reproducing the entire text here so that google will pick it up for anyone researching. They agreed that whatever it said was so, but they argued about what it said. Neither have the poor white people been treated right. The colored people down in my country were treated just as well as the white people by businessmen. God meant for Christian people to treat each other right. Wherever we have the races mixed up in large numbers, we have trouble. Only a small percentage of the Southern people held slaves. A great many people in the South in the old days did not believe in slavery–they stood against slavery. What we should have done was to have sent missionaries to Africa. They do not believe the Bible any longer; so it does not do any good to quote it to them. They are the most wonderful people who ever lived in the world. If you are against segregation and against racial separation, then you are against God Almighty because He made racial separation in order to preserve the race through whom He could send the Messiah and through whom He could send the Bible. God is the author of Jewish separation and Gentile separation and Japanese separation.
It proves the inadequacy of the new administration’s “statement of regret” in 2008 (Newest iteration: “Statement About Race“). In recent years there has been a subtle, Satanic effort to undermined people’s faith in the Bible; and the devil has elf the race along until men have put their own opinion above the Word of God. When I was a boy in Southeast Alabama, we lived in what was called the white section of the State. The slaves were in the western part and in the midsection of the State. Any man who would mistreat a colored man would mistreat a white man. If you are a Christian white person or a Christian colored person, you will treat each other right. But they went ahead, and the commercial element was dominant; and people bought slaves and sold them. They have gone over to modernism, and they are leading the white people astray at the same time; and they are leading colored Christians astray. He gave the Chinese something that he did not give the Japanese. God chose them; and God segregated them, not because they were inferior but because He had a purpose for that race. .” The Jews are back in Palestine with a Government today. God made of one blood all nations, but He also drew the boundary lines between races.
