Baptists/Interracial Marriage


I have been a Christian for thirty years, and have been active in my local church during that time. My question is about interracial marriage.  While I have a number of friends who are black, and over the years have sent thousands of dollars to countries with a black populace, I have a personal struggle accepting interracial marriage.
I grew up in the south, and attended an integrated school where I had many good black friends. Personally I do not consider myself a racist, but my distaste in interracial marriage in this politically correct culture, labels me as such. I see it as a blight on my own race, and observe the troublesome issues children/families of mixed race have.  Your views would be appreciated.

Hi Beau,
  I am sorry this response is so slow, but the holidays have been keeping me busy.   What I would like you to do is read my article "The Origin of Race" at   So many people have asked the same question as you is the reason I researched and wrote the article.
  The article will answer your questions in some detail giving you the biblical perspective on the issue of race.
   If after reading the article you have further questions or comments, please write.
