As a SDA Christian, what are your views regarding interracial dating and marriages? Would you date interracially?
In this web site we can find some examples of interracial marriage, such myself. Uncle Murray, Alexander, etc! We have married from yellow race, even tough we come from white one! Depends many others reasons and region culture as well!
I'm Filipina and a lot of asians I know prefer caucasians when it comes to interracial relationship I don't know if this is just a personal preference or deep seated racism but what I do know is that whitening products are big in asians countries.
I think if there's a connection between the two.
SLOW DOWN ! Inter - racial marriages is not a issue persay and yet again it is ok?/ SLOW DOWN!! listen up. Cultural issues between 2 couples accustomed to their way of seeing things can be crippling and it can be alittle bit of a heartache too .
Why what reason am I saying this for ? 1, beofre entering into a marriage with another from another culture remember this depending on the age of the individuals cultural issues in a marriage is something if u over look will cause u gr8 stress and distress too.. Do not think just because u have "talked "" about it before hand everything is now solved for it is in-grained into our brain pattern young friends and if it is not daily met u going to have gr8 heartaches too.. MAY I suggest you not just talk about it but in praye rgive it serious consideration before going onward with a marriage that is between 2 sepperate cultures and trust me here it not easy t o over come cultural habits that be wrong if the other refuses to open their eyes and see beyond just how they were raised even in a seventh day adventist home ok??
OH MY Stars I CAN hear you thinking out loud what possible thing can go wrong if Both are 7th day adventists and raised in this manner too? LET me say this many times those born in 7th day adventists homes have just enough truth that they think that by having daily devotions morning and evening and keping the Sabbath day holy by attending church and participating in pathfinders and church offices this will save them..
NOOOOO THIS is called works it is by fait h we are saved and this means when we hear something that goes against just how we understand Gods word we do not let our cultural upbringing inter fear with accepting and following fully on what God wants us to practise personally. IF u love me---dress differently -- if u love me eat for strength, not out of a habit!, if u love me dont allow past hurts to close your heart to advancement in truth for today!, their a place for morning devotion evening devotion too. Do u enjoy having devotions ? none of this will do u any good if u wont practise what u read.. ARe u one that will accept another to come behind and show something from the passages u been reading that u missed when reading?? Are u also able to accept constructive critisim?. Many times when we read it word for word but we tend t omiss the bigger intent that lies underneath we never seen with our minds eye . .
gr8 marriages are based on two individuals and lovingly determined to follow Gods leading despite what culture the y were raised in ok?? ok 2 short examples 1 RUTH .a Moabite woman whose people worshiped Idols , she clung to naome your God will be My god your people my people , where u sleep their wilI also sleep . . LOve is not being to old to change ones habits .. we see also another example of Rahab she had practised being a prostitute and even the king and others knew of her in that walled gr8 city of jerico .
SHE LOVED AND THEIRFORE ACCEPTED by faith the Living God o f Israel was truly above all LIFESTYLE EVEN that of a S,D,A CAN be cotrolled by impulse or habit that soooo hard to ge tthrough and at times it like going through solid granite to get through to their minds they doing that should be let go of. ok I long winded here sorry!
I don't believe that there is no problem with having an interracial marriage. Look at Moses for example. The only thing that God stresses in the Bible is the marring of someone out of your belief and we can take that a step further and say out of your spiritual belief because not everyone is spiritually compatible. But the problem with all this dating and marring, is that we no longer wait on God choose that special someone for us. I don’t believe in dating because it sounds so callous; what I believe in is courting which is a long term relationship which normally should end in marriage. Once again ethnicity is not a problem because God made us all the way we are.
I have no problem with interracial marriage, but I would suggest that each person scope out the expectations of each partner in an intercultural marriage.
I know of a person who married into a different cultural situation, not knowing that when she became the wife of her husband, that the family dynamic would be quite different. It was really from the dark ages where the treatment of the wife was concerned. The marriage did not last...
That's why I say, leave it to God! Some people can’t understand that not everyone is meant to be married. And since we don't want to be alone we rush into a relationship that was not meant to be. We not don't pray together and get spiritual counseling we just put it upon our self’s to start a relationship and then we ask God why later. Let God choose the person that's right for us because no one knows us better that God. Since the choices are so grand we get confused like a child with 10 toys before them yet they can only choose one.
