Before we begin: I don't really care who you get with, God is more important. I just wanted to put this out there as a cautionary thing.
This is a topic that's quite sensitive and I realize many in the present day church are inside interracial marriages and are mighty servants of God. But for a long time I've sensed that this is a topic that we shy away from, and as a result people are getting into relationships without deeply thinking about the long term ramifications. Which leads to unnecessary suffering, confusion and often regret.
As I'm sure a lot of us do, we have relatives who are half this and half that. In our situation, my side is fully European and the other is Asian/European. Their family is staunchly faithful, but the physical differences are glaring to say the least. We recently got together and I had a great time with them, but what stood out to me was the insecurity. They essentially have to make a choice about who they are and who they identify with. Most of them sway towards Asian culture/friends and some of them European, but it was sad when my younger cousin said that they "didn't quite fit in 100%".
Now I want to reassure everyone with the fact that race plays no role in salvation as explicitly outlined in the following:
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” - Revelation 7:9-10
But I love the diversity that God created, I love all my cousins and I love the different peoples. And because of this, I wouldn't join together in marriage with someone across racial boundaries.
Fellas, I strongly consider that the race you are born with is a gift from God and is not to be taken lightly, but to be treated with a healthy respect, while at the same time not idolized. There are many more reasons not to intermarry. It saves you so much unnecessary BS and most of all, you get to give your kids something that goes back centuries and has been consecrated by God. So no matter who you are or where you come from, be fruitful and multiply - wisely.
