Interracial Marriage

by David J. Stewart

I recently received a question from someone regarding "interracial marriage" ... is it sinful?  Here is my reply:

"Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers
and adulterers God will judge." -Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is permissible between the races.

However, it is sinful and unbiblical to deliberately promote interracial
marriage with the intent of unifying the world. There is an agenda today
to promote marriage between different races. God segregated mankind in
the Bible at Babel, that all men might seek the Lord (Acts 17:26-27). In
other words, one corrupt group of people wouldn't necessarily corrupt the
other groups. Whenever men unite together, it always a bad thing. Satan
today is working relentlessly to remove all the boundaries, to promote a
one-world religion, economy, and police state. It is happening now. The
purpose is to lead the world in worship of the coming beast.

Personally, I think it's recommended for racial groups to marry within
their own group. There are many challenges and problems associated with
mixed marriages. It is not sinful according to Hebrews 13:4, but I think
it's repercussions are something to be considered, especially upon the
children. That's not to say that there aren't successful and happy mixed
marriages, but the racial tensions that exist between the two families can
often cause a feeling of alienation for one, or both, spouses.

Bottom line ... Hebrews 13:4 permits interracial marriage and it doesn't
matter what I think, but I do have my opinion on the matter. The
unnatural promotion of interracial marriages today is sinful because of
the agenda behind it, and that agenda is a one world order. There's just
something beautiful about a family heritage that can be traced back within
one's one ethnic group. But, I do know some wonderful people who have
mixed marriages. I'll tell you what, God isn't going to judge those who
marry interracially ... He's going to judge the whores and whoremongers.

One thing is absolutely certain, God forbids a saved person from dating or
marrying an unsaved person (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17). If a Christian
marries an unsaved person, then they will have the Devil for a

I hope my children will marry within their own ethnic group, but will
honor their decision if they marry outside of it. It's their decision,
not mine. God declares that He is only going to judge those who have sex
outside of marriage. An interracial marriage is far better than two
people of the same race shacking up together. God loves marriages, and He
hates those who mock and diminish the sacredness of it. I think parents
should explain to their teenage children the possible negative
repercussions of a mixed marriage; but, also let them know what Hebrews
13:4 teaches. Moses married an Ethiopian women. Bathsheba was dark
skinned. There is no sin in interracial marriage; but, there is sin if
the marriage is only based upon an agenda, and not based upon love and

Hope that helps,
