Marriage between different "colors"
It has come to my attention that some Christians have been deceived about "interracial" marriage. Some believe that it is wrong for a "black" man to marry a "white" woman. There beliefs have no scriptural background and thus must be dismissed immediately as other vain philosophies of men. There is no such thing as interracial marriage. The word race literally means people of common descent. All people are descendants of Noah and futher Adam. Genesis 1:24 defines marriage, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." So marriage is when a man and a woman cleave unto each other. Can it be when a man who skin is brown cleaves unto a woman who's skin is white? The scripture says "a man" and "his wife". Christians are forbidden to marry the heathen (non-believers) as it is written in 2 Corinthians 6:14, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
