Interracial Christian Dating | Date Interracial Christians
What does the Bible say about interracial marriage?
I get it. And what better way to do that than to actually date someone who is a different race? I mean, way to show the world how woke you are! I fully believe we are called to initiate, grow, and maintain healthy cross-cultural relationships, and that being part of the kingdom of God means experiencing more than just your little corner of it.
Theologian John Piper has shared a biblical perspective on interracial dating and marriage, arguing that Christians should "celebrate the unity of a godly, Christ-exalting man and woman who are marrying in the Lord across racial lines". In fact, he revealed that growing up, he was taught to believe the opposition to interracial marriage was grounded in Scripture. In a blog post, Piper admitted that he was, at the time, a "southern teenage racist". I wasn't just taught that it was a sin; I believed it was a sin," he writes.
