Nehemiah -27 - In those days also saw I Jews [that] had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, [and] of Moab: 2 Corinthians - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? Deuteronomy 7:1-3 - When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; Ezra 10:1-44 - Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore.
Ezra 9:1-15 - Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, [doing] according to their abominations, [even] of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
After all, all humans are classified as Homo Sapiens. 2 For God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
AND HE MADE FROM ONE BLOOD [FROM ONE PERSON, ADAM] EVERY NATION [EVERY ETHNIC GROUP] OF MEN TO DWELL ON ALL THE FACE OF THE EARTH (Acts17: 24-26).
You can have two of any color of the same people, and have different races (ethnic groups).
That is the way it is at this moment around this world, and it has been like this from the beginning of time. Now that race has been correctly defined, lets look further into marrying outside of ones race.
Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.
(NIV, Galatians -28) The Bible does not actually recognise the concept of race as we have it today, although it does refer to nations.
But for most, the issue of dating involves "romantic attraction and desire." Therefore "dating" must be approached by what the Scripture says regarding romantic desire and marriage, the only relationship in which romantic desire is to be fully expressed.
THEREFORE, A RACE IS CORRECTLY DEFINED AS AN ETHNIC GROUP ?
A PEOPLE WHO HOLD TO A PARTICULAR CULTURE, NOT A CLASS OF PEOPLE, OR A PEOPLE WITH A PECULIAR LOOK, OR A DIFFERENT SKIN COLOR. Actually, the word nation in the Greek text means ethnic group. A race is not the people themselves, but their ethnic group their culture.
There is an agenda today to promote marriage between different races.
