Response to Adam Jone's Interracial Dating and the Fools Who Don't Like It

I totally agree with Adam!!! And my Christian response on this is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with dating or marrying someone from a different culture, background, or race from you. As long as they have given their life to Christ that's all that counts. Technically when we give our lives to Christ and become Christians we all belong to one race, the race of the kingdom of God and it’s perfectly ok to marry anyone in the kingdom of God regardless of their culture, race, skin color etc. God doesn't see race and color, he see's people, he doesn't look at the outward appearance, he looks at the heart and that's what we are supposed to do.

From a Christian perspective, one race isn't better than another, neither is one culture better than another, take away our skin and we are all the same on the inside. Once we give our lives to Christ there is no more Jews or Gentiles, no more discriminating against other races, no more trying to segregate yourself from other races, we are all one and therefore can marry and date people who are not brought up in the same culture as us.

A black Christian can marry or date a white Christians, an Asian Christian can marry or date a South American Christian, as long as they are a child of God, God isn't looking at the color of their skin; he is looking at the content of their heart.

However, for this Christian relationship advice to be complete, I must highlight one other point. if you do decide to date or marry someone from a different culture as you, be prepared to accommodate the differences and challenges that arise from coming from different backgrounds.

What's acceptable in one culture might not be acceptable in another, what's okay in one culture might be offensive to another and you have to learn these differences and manage them well in order for the relationship to work. And even when the two of you understand these differences, your family members will also have to be educated about these differences especially if there is the prospect of marriage so that they don't end up misinterpreting the actions of your partner and seeing them as disrespectful not realizing that it's just a difference in culture.

We have to learn to put away prejudices in the body of Christ, although we may have our cultural differences, we are all still Gods children and are all the same in his eyes.
