Romney asked if interracial dating a sin

The Bible shows, however, that the group who left Egyptian bondage was anything but pure genetically.

The 34th chapter of Exodus delineates the creation of a second set of stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments.

The first set was broken by Moses when, as he was coming down Mount Sinai, he saw the Israelites worshipping a pagan god (Exodus 32). Who is being given the above "interracial" warning?

A colorblind church and/or a Christian interracial marriage can be a powerful illustration of our equality in Christ.

Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?

By the time of the Exodus, the tribe of Ephraim could muster 40,500 fighting males and Manasseh had 32,200 men who could go to war (Numbers - 35).

Some who study the topics of interracial dating and marriage often overlook the fact that God did not restrict who could and could not leave Egypt in the Exodus.

God not only allowed and accepted Joseph's interracial marriage, he also had Jacob perform a unique ceremony that made them the chief representatives of the family named Israel (see Genesis 48)!

God greatly blessed Joseph's two sons Ephraim and Manasseh.

Was he and his family considered not true Israelites?

Before his death, the patriarch Jacob specially "adopts" Joseph's two boys and makes them the chief inheritors of the birthright blessings received by his grandfather Abraham!

In fact, the biblical perspective is that there is only one “race”—the human race, with everyone having descended from Adam and Eve.
