Interracial Marriage


Is interracial marriage a sin? There are several people at the place where I work that claim that the Bible says that it is a sin. But Moses, Joseph, and Ruth are examples of interracial marriages. The passages they site clearly to me are saying not to marry a non-believer.


I’m not aware of any Biblical commandment against inter-racial marriages for believers. In Galatians 3:26-28 Paul wrote that we’re all one in Christ. The only restriction on marriage concerns believers marrying unbelievers (2 Cor. 6:14).
