INTERRACIAL Marriage IS Against God's LAW!
[used to be against Man's TOO]
The Antichrists know the Word of God, and they know God cannot lie. When we sin, they win… Why were the Ten Commandments and prayer taken out of school.??… The Antichrist knows: If we violate the Law ... God will destroy us, even if we don’t know that we are violating it. Why is abortion legal? Why is integration forced on us? Notice that neither of those sin/curses (really) became possible until prayer and the Bible were taken out of school… and we officially REJECTED God.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,…seeing thou hast forgotten the Law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”(Hos 4:6) Also see Proverbs 2.
Interracial Marriages and the Effects on Children
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Othello, the Moor and Desdemona, his Venetian wife, from William Shakespeare's Othello.
Interracial marriage occurs when two people of differing racial groups marry. This is often a form of exogamy (marrying outside of one's social group) and can be seen in the broader context of miscegenation (mixing of different racial groups in marriage, cohabitation, or sexual relations).
Actually, this was not so much a prohibition about mixing races as it was against mixing religions and it was given specifically to, AND ONLY TO, the Jewish people as they were to enter "the promised land".
Deuteronomy: Chapter 7, verses 1-3 (ESV)
1 When the Lord your God brings you into the land that you are entering to take possession of it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and mightier than yourselves,
2 and when the Lord your God gives them over to you, and you defeat them, then you must devote them to complete destruction.a You shall make no covenant with them and show no mercy to them.
3 You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, 4for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly. 5But thus shall you deal with them: you shall break down their altars and dash in pieces their pillars and chop down their Asherim and burn their carved images with fire.
The concern here was not race, but turning the "chosen people" away from the "true God" to worship "false Gods".
Even assuming that this scripture did somehow apply to anyone other than the Jewish people in that specific situation the concern would still be mixing religions and not race.
If two people from different races were of the same religion they would not be violating these instructions because there would be no risk of anyone being turned away from the "true God" so it is clear that this is about religion and not race.
