I would like to ask everyone here, if interracial dating was allowed between a westerner and someone from say oh i dont know iran?
I’ve looked for statistics saying committed Christians in cross-cultural relationships are more likely to suffer marriage failure and divorce. Before I was married people honestly and earnestly warned me about the cultural difficulties we would face. Our unconscious disapproval of cross-cultural marriage means we see others differently.
God clearly separated the races, and separate they should remain or so the argument went.
To this they added the injunction against Israelites marrying into the nations around them and the verse in Acts about God appointing boundaries for the nations (see Acts ). Yet the weight of biblical evidence says we are all one race (human) made in God’s image (Genesis –28), we are all equal in God’s eyes and the only distinction made is between Christian and non-Christian (Galatians ).
I can't imagine the Catholic Church's social politics having regressed since then!
Well you do know there are Christians in Iran they had a Christian and Jewish presence for a over a thousand years.
[quote="Hesychios, post:4, topic:178561"] There are no ethnic/racial barriers to marriage in Christianity.
[/quote] Um..are aware that Muslims are not a race, right?
We must examine our attitudes and make sure we are not subconsciously using religion to propagate human prejudice and bias.
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, even though I may be Catholic I would like to point out that I have an open mind when it comes to religion, and would like to learn from other cultures, and customs.
Yet in the United States the Adventist Church is still predominantly split into a mainstream and an African-American church system. My parents are both “white Australians” and yet my dad grew up in Australian urban culture and my mum did all her schooling as a missionary kid in Fiji.
I can’t help but wonder if this compromise solution is maintained through our fear of intermarriage, fuelled by a misapplication of Mrs White’s comments. More issues come from not understanding each other’s communication styles and needs. She has spoken of her culture shock when she returned to Australia.
BTW, there are Christians in Iran, most of them in churches with deeply Apostolic roots.
