What are y’all’s beliefs of interracial relationships? What were you brought up to believe, or what do you currently believe? I’ve seen quite a lot on the internet recently about interracial relationships and how some people are completely against it and are moved so deeply by this. For example:
I love any and every godly relationship, so I don’t understand why some people wouldn’t like it. Please feel free to express whatever you want below, but please keep in mind that everyone may not agree with you and just because others do or do not agree with you does not make you right or wrong; everyone has a different take on things 🙂

My reply to this sort of question is this: I think nothing of them. Purely knowing a relationship is interracial is far from enough information to give me an opinion.

I never realized it was still an issue for some people. To me it’s weird that interracial relationships are something to even pause and consider.

So, the way my parents and I have always seen it is that we are all people. People love people, and people hate people. An i think it’s awesome that some people just love who they love, no matter what.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with interracial relationships. I don’t understand why this would even be an issue.
The only thing that’s really important is whether or not they have a relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s extremely easy to get swayed into another person’s beliefs.

I’m glad you girls think the same. I think it’s just surprising that in this day and age people still feel this way. Oh well 🙂

Me too! But lately, it’s come to my attention just how differently people who don’t have God’s Holy Spirit in them think. So I guess I can’t say I’m super surprised. It’s easy to be confused, I think my own thoughts and beliefs would be a mess if I didn’t have the bible to base them on, and God to help me understand certain things about life.

I think there’s nothing wrong with them! Lol seeing as I come from one! Haha but yeah, there are people who are completely against it, such as my great grandmother. She was raising my mother, who is white, and when she found out my mom became pregnant at 14 from a black male, she wasn’t happy. She wanted me aborted, saying I was a product of the devil himself. ( these are words she has spoken to my face more than once). But no, I see nothing wrong with interracial relationships.

I think the only reason that interracial relationships are problematic in some people’s opinions is because they just believe in false stereotypes or perceptions about certain races and don’t think that the two people are compatible. But I see nothing wrong with it at all and I think it’s actually really great that we are coming to a time when people are so much more accepting of each other. If God loves all races of people equally, why shouldn’t we all be able to love each other? And obviously there are going to be some instances where an interracial relationship won’t work because some people may wan’t to marry someone who has the same culture and background. There’s nothing wrong with that, but for those people who don’t really care about that kind of stuff in a relationship, there’s nothing wrong with interracial dating at all.

I see nothing wrong with them. I probaly would not marry someone, just because of culture difference. But if they turn out to be the one and a great match then sure no problem marrying or dating them. I c nothing wrong with them

Just an FYI I think I know why some Christians think interracial relationships are sinful.
There’s a verse at the end of Nehemiah that says it’s sinful to marry a foreigner. However, when you read the verses surrounding it, it’s clear that the foreigners were people who worshipped another god. The problem was not that they were from another country, but that they weren’t Christian and led their spouse into sin.
In the New Testament, God says that we’re all one in Christ–there’s no Jew or Gentile (In other words, we shouldn’t discriminate based on where a person was born–it doesn’t matter, because we are all a family in Jesus Christ).
Anyway, I know I’m preaching to the choir here, I just thought this might be helpful to know in case y’all run into someone who tries to use the Bible to condemn others for interracial relationships 🙂
