As Martin Luther King, Jr., noted, a person should be judged by his or her character, not by skin color.
There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10).
If I were in your shoes, I would say something along the lines of: “Hey listen…It’s reasonable to interpret that as meaning you’ve agreed to not date anyone or sleep with anyone else, but I want to ask: when you agreed to be exclusive, how did this come about?
How clear was his side of the agreement to being committed?
Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?
What should a Christian do if he or she is married to an unbeliever? Should Christians of different denominations date or marry?
but this stuff is hurting people’s feelings who are in our families and friends of ours.Life is complicated and the heart wants what the heart wants.“When I saw this, it just doesn’t line up with someone who wants to be 100% exclusive.However, the reason for this command was not skin color or ethnicity. The reason God commanded against interracial marriage for the Jews was that people of other races were worshippers of false gods.The Israelites would be led astray from God if they intermarried with idol worshippers, pagans, or heathens.Since signing on with Oprah in 2005, the brunette with the raspy voice and perky personality has skyrocketed to fame with an empire of both cooking and talk shows, as well as a successful cookbooks, partnerships, and cookware lines.In 2007, the tabloids were buzzing that her marriage with Cusimano was on the rocks.“Life is to short to spend our time, energy and youth on something that isn’t spectacular.I’m fine with either and if you don’t want that, we can part ways as friends – sincerely, no hard is separate, but I want to address it for your sake in general).This is exactly what happened in Israel, according to Malachi .A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.
