We all come from the first man and woman, Adam and Eve.The apostle Paul taught the same when he declared that God created all things, that He is the Lord of heaven and Earth, and that He made all nations from one man, Adam (Acts -26).Finally, as the old saying goes, when you marry the person, you marry the whole family.One must be prepared to encounter familial ostracization and condemnation.The prophets of the Old Testament longed for the time when both Gentiles and Jews would stream unto the Lord, when the Messiah would be a light unto the Gentiles as well as the Jews, when God would pour out his Spirit on all peoples (cf.Psalm 2:7-8; -28; Isaiah 2:1ff.; 42:6; 49:6; Joel ff.) These hopes and promises have been fulfilled in Christ Jesus.The early ministry of the apostles was hindered to the extent that they failed to see that Gentiles were to be accepted into the body of Christ, without being converted to Judaism first (Acts , 28; 11:2-3, 8).
Actually, the prohibitions were not strictly against Jewish-Gentile marriages as racial mixture, but against believer-unbeliever marriages (cf. Solomon was judged for marrying, not simply foreign women, but foreign women who believed in false gods.
In fact, if you think about it, many forms we fill out give us the option to note whether we are “Black,” “White,” “Hispanic,” “Asian,” and “Other.” I guess that if you are the child of an interracial marriage (and therefore, multiracial), you are “Other” (a strange way to label people).
Thirdly, people from differing cultures have unusual differences to overcome.
Often, intercultural marriages, more than interracial marriages (for not all people from different cultures differ in the color of their skin), encounter greater difficulties within the relationship.
Cultural practice and prejudice is often more difficult to overcome than is skin color.
