I know the old testament Jews were only allowed to marry other Jews. It was more about marrying one of the same faith, more then the skin color. Keeping the Jewish race alive. Not mixing with Pagans. (which still happened)
Which with Christians, its the same one should marry within the faith to be equally yoked/liked minded. To marry a nonbeliever, would cause more problems, and marriage has enough of those as is lol
To me race in old testement means of heritage, not skin color
I have heard both sides , saying bible allows and doesn't allow. Each one convicing in their own right. But my conviction is God made us all......and what matters is being equally yoked/like minded...what goes on within, not on the outside. God looks within, where it matters.. while us humans seem to be more preoccupied on what is on the outside.
But thats my two cents, if its worth that lol
