Hi! "Marlin46"
Gosh! I musttah missed something when I was studying Ornithology.
I had no idea that redbirds and bluebirds could be said to be an entirely distinct species in the world of zoology.

The many stone age drawings from the earliest times are a clear indication that man has had a keen interest in birds. The same could likely be said about the curiosity of mankind with their opposite sex.

Anywayz, I jus' can't imagine some forlorn cave dweller becoming suspicious of different colored feathers or different colored skin.
As someone surely must have commented about Abraham, "The things you might find in tents!"

Miriam, Moses' sister was made barren? Where in scripture does it say that? I have read she had leprosy for seven days, but not being made barren. She was over 80 anyway, so I guess she didn't need to be made barren.

Acts 17:26, "And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth..."

We are all descended from Adam and Eve, whom God created, therefore, everyone on the face of the planet have the same God given blood.

As has been said, there is only one race, the human race.

Different colours there may be, but one race.

God bless.

I believe Dr. Martin Luther King said that one is not judged by the color of tbeir skin. But by the content of tbeir character. God told Samuel that nan looks at the outward appearance. God looks at the heart.

Enid: My mistake. You are right. It was not barrenness. It was leprosy. Thanks for the correction.

I am in an interracial marriage. Filipina and Caucasian.
Hi! 'DEADn' (John)
I dunno why; maybe itz cuz I've interacted with you several times in here ...
But I was so very pleased to read about your marital situation. It helped me appreciate you more.

Hey Blayne, December will mark our 11 year anniversary. Funny thing because I used to write pen pals, with pen and paper and use it as a missionary project and low and behold I ended up with a wife through it all.

Hi! 'DEADn' (John)

Well, thatz great for you both! I'm very happy for the both of you.

Can I tell you sumthin' true an' funny?

I was a single parent and my son was 'bout 6 at the time. Anyways, I meet this very nice lady who originated from Malaysia and she too was a single parent.
So, off we go to see how things will perhaps work out for us.

Now, she was a very sincere Christian lady and had a very nice boy of about 5 years old. We were both trying our best to give our sons a wholesome Christian environment.
Speaking for my own home, there was certainly no swearing 'er nonsense like that to be heard in my house.
Anyways, the lady and her son show up for their very first dinner in our home.
As we began to eat, this sweet Christian lady muttered aloud to her son, "Use yer F*,*[email protected]#@ knife!"
Well, my son had a most surprised and horrified look on his face. He half expected me to leap over the table and summarily toss the lady out the door.

It took a few seconds for everyone to catch the look of each others faces around the table. While my son and I couldn't hide our shared shock, the lady and her son couldn't hide their curiosity about what might have happened.

Suddenly, I realized what had happened.
It was the lady's foreign accent that messed things up for our hearing.
She had told her son, "Use your FORK and KNIFE!". But her rapid form of phonetics had it sounding like a profanity.
My son and I mistakenly heard an entirely different phrase.

My son and I have laffed about that situation many times since.

I would have been redfaced in that situation but then it would have been a great time to break the ice. When you can laugh at each other and be genuine about it without faking it it goes a long way in molding a new relationship.

When I was in the Philippines the first time I would ocassionally here uh oh and every time I heard it I would turn my head to the speak and ask , what? Well. turns out what I heard as uh oh is actually 'OO' and it means Yes in tagalog. You can say oonga and it means yes with passion. Also, the word for water - tubig. Sounds like you are saying Too big.

One other story. I got on a jeepney near a mall. Those drivers wait until those rides are packed so they can make money even those it is cheap fair. During one ride a lady next to me began to preach. It was in tagalog but I recognized 'Cristo'. People looked at her and looked away. She did this for some 20 minutes until it was time for her stop. I just grinned at that. Philippines is a traditionally Catholic country and sport more gospel type imagery there then we see in America. I told my wife that if the U.S.A swapped places with the Philippines in terms of religious imagery the ACLU would have the courts clogged up for a long time.

  interracial marriage views by Peter Hammond


As one born in Africa and raised in Africa, I have dedicated most of my life to serving Africans and I have travelled throughout this continent ministering in 30 countries. I was brought up amongst the Matabele in Zimbabwe and have many Zulu, Chichewa, Moru, Nuba and Nigerian friends.

I have seen numerous cross-cultural marriages, and generally speaking, all parties involved come to regret it.

For centuries, actually millenniums, interracial marriage was either illegal, strongly discouraged or frowned upon. However in the latter part of the 20 th century, and now at the beginning of the 21 st century, Hollywood and the news media have bombarded us with images and propaganda to promote all manner of previously unacceptable conduct, including interracial marriages. Nowhere has this been more intense than in South Africa over the last two decades. It often seems like two out of every three advertisements have a black male and a white female. Numerous New World Order Advocates openly say that mixed marriages are necessary to eradicate the whites in future generations.

Those of us who have pastoral responsibilities and have had to counsel numerous relationships are well aware of the catastrophic consequences of interracial and cross-cultural marriages. The divorce rate and instances of domestic violence are far more common in such unions. And the conflicts with in-laws more intense.

Marriage does not just involve two people but two families. It affects generations to come. Generally speaking, two people from different races, or cultures, getting married are not honouring their parents and seldom are they considering the consequences for the children. The children will belong to neither the race of the mother, nor of the father.

For hundreds of generations our ancestors married within their race, or none of us would exist. But now Europe is in danger of being swamped by multitudes of non-Europeans, especially Muslims.

Perhaps the situation does not seem quite as serious to people living in Europe right now. However, for those of us who are a small minority, a severely persecuted minority, in Africa, the consequences of being swamped by other cultures is all too acute.

I have discussed this matter with numerous pastors, theologians and authors throughout South Africa, in Europe and in America. Almost every one of them has agreed that the social and domestic consequences of interracial and inter-cultural marriages are disastrous. Most also agreed that they believed that such unions were unBiblical. However, only a few were willing to speak out openly against it, from the pulpit, or in counselling. There are a number of fine missions in Africa, experiencing Spiritual Revival, whose founders and directors have told me directly that they never have, and never will, marry people of different races, as they believe that to be sin.

I have many friends of all races. However, to marry across the colour line would be to me to betray my parents and all of our ancestors, and my children and future generations. Most importantly I believe it would be a betrayal to Almighty God, who has set the boundaries between nations.

For your further study you may want to see a Bible study that I wrote on Unequally Yoked and an article by a missionary friend of ours on Intercultural Dating and Marriage. Although the Bible study deals primarily with the Scriptures forbidding marriage with unbelievers, you will see that many of the Scriptures are very specific about marriage with other nations as well.

Please do note the dictionary definitions and the Order of Service requirements for marriage from the Book of Common Prayer.

On our adventure of Discipleship, we continually have to put our personal emotions to one side and chose to obey God’s Word first and foremost.

 Re: interracial marriage views by Peter Hammond

Without reservation. Peter Hammond is a racist. His.conclusions are without Biblical warrant. His mind set is external. He is looking upon the outward appearance. He has no kingdom paradyne.

 You are a superior race, separate and of the ruler class of mankind.

I agree that inter-racial marriage marriage may present some real cultural pressure on the marriage, and the children; some cultures more or less.

To say that it is sin, or unbiblical though, is preposterous; absurd. Pentecost is a fine example, as the Holy Spirit fell upon many proselytes [ international converts to Judaism]and Israeli and International Jews.

" And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God."....

So if God Himself would marry a people of another race, it is then forbidden for us, His one and same people?

Remember, we all are really of one blood...Adam....and later Noah, who appears to be a Semite. God created diverse peoples, black skin, tan skin, and red hued skin, ivory colored skin, and the pink race too [ me ], and red heads .

Every tyrant ever believed that his race was superior. In recent memory I think of Mussolini [ Italian] and of course the beloved Fuhrer [ Aryan ], and the Japanese believed they were the superior race....and preached the exact same mantra as Hammond.

You cannot be a racist and still claim to love God; it is wicked lying pride.
