    Whenever I read the Song of Solomon, I always think I am reading about an inter racial relationship.

    Indeed. I am not disputing @Radagast experience, rather I am, in conversation, offering my own.

    you didn't ask if the kids were loved

    assuming since our schools operate one school grade above how it used to be, if the kids are getting to the next grade
    ( we have a third grade reading guarantee so you can't move to 4th unless you pass the cutoff test score) then someone in the family is helping with homework, someone is getting the kids ready for school, and no one is keeping their kids out late on school nights, and everyone appears well nourished, the kids are all in activities like sports, music, dancing etc, etc
    and as I arrive home from picking up my child from school, see one parent waiting for his child to get off bus and every single day, the child runs into his arms and he lifts her up in the air into his arms........
    so maybe the kids of interracial couples in our neighborhood are doing fine....

    Far more importantly, we all of us who are grafted into the Vine are the same family in Him.

    The culture we embrace is the culture of the Kingdom and there should be no distinction (as far as who we relate to whether in marriage or otherwise) on any other ground than in Him.

    Early Christian were despised and accused of commiting incest by marrying thier brothers and sisters, so close was the community of the Kingdom.

    From the bad news department, the world loves the sin and propogates it - thrives in sin....

    Not all of Noah's descendants are Jews.

    Jews are descendant from one of Noah's sons, Shem. Descendants of his other two sons, Ham and Japheth, are not Jews.

    We're not all Jews. As Noah wasn't Jewish. He was a Hebrew. We are all Hebrews, descended from Noah, but not all Jewish. Hebrews are Israelites. All that walk today are hebrews, some will repent and be grafted back into Israel, and others will not and will never be grafted in or back in to Israel.

    Jews only descend from the son of Jacob(Israel) known as Judah.

    Meaning Moses, since he came from Jacob's son Levi, was not a Jew, but a Levite. Nor was Abraham. Since Judah hadn't been born yet there were no Jews. Abraham was however a Hebrew.

    David was a Jew, and so was Jesus. Even Paul was not Jewish. He technically was a Benjamite.

    I was pointing out that just because the Lord can make us all happy under any circumstances doesn't mean we should feel free to sin.

    It's not about whether we should or should not. Rather it is the realisation that to sin in response to unhappiness will only compound the unhappiness, and this is why our Loving Father told us not to do these things and showed us a better way instead.

    Red flag alert - many many people claim they 'want' to educate and enlighten .... while destroying the souls and faith of little children with pagan unbiblical evil and perversion.
    Some governments are actually attempting to destroy all within their power/domain by forced perversion in their jurisdiction,
    and many posters / visitors likewise attempt to subvert everyone and defile even those who may be innocent, both children and adults.

    I think we were talking about interracial relationships. I pointed out that when I was a kid, it was suggested blacks shouldn't marry whites because their kids wouldn't be accepted by whites OR blacks. It was suggested adults should think of the kids' happiness as well as their own.

    No, "interracial" marriages are not sinful. As the black member of an interracial marriage (my husband is white), I can say that we have not had any problems from either side of the family (except my mother in law at first wasn't exactly happy with the match, then met me and was very happy with me). Unfortunately, stereotypes abound and in the West, particularly in the United States, we have tons of racial baggage, thus people on both sides stating that "interracial" relationships and marriages are sinful. This is due to ignorance of history and how the concept of "race" was invented to promote one group and justify the degradation, suppression, and oppression of another group or groups. I find any racism in Christianity a blight on the faith and not the intention of Christ's true church. Many have the idea that God is their particular ethnicity which is utter nonsense, as God is God and has no particular ethnicity whatsoever and though we are made in the image of the Most High, He is definitely not human. This hypocrisy of finding other humans unpalatable simply based on physical appearance and ancestry is exactly part of what drives people away from hearing the Gospel and turning to Christ. We are a mixed multitude of people and folks need to get used to the idea that ALL people groups will be represented in the Kingdom of God.

    We are not all Hebrews. Like Jews, Hebrews are descendant from Shem. The first person in the Bible called a Hebrew was Abraham, not Noah.
    Who are the Hebrews?

    You beat me to it, Southernscotty..... I would say that it is certainly time to look for a church more in tune with the message of love and forgiveness in the Gospels. Having said this, it is still true that in some areas, especially some rural and very conservative places, you might have to weigh the cost of dating a member of another race. It is possible that some friends and/or family members might get most upset at you for interracial dating. Still, it is your decision and fear of sinning should not be a factor in your thinking whatsoever.

    Noah was not a Hebrew. There were no Hebrews until Abraham.

    when i was rather young i read a parable on this topic. I THINK it was called "beggars in Spain" but i am not 100% sure.
    The idea was One man wanted to spend money to fund projects for the poor, the second disagreed posing the same question you just did. "Imagine walking in the poorest street in Spain. Masses of starving children surround you as you walk begging for money. any money. For every little beggar you give a coin to three more appear with outstretched hands. You can't give them all coins. and the ones you do give money to, that small amount of money won't make any long term changes. it is just a waste of your money." The first responded that he woudl still give coins to as many beggars as he could because that one coin can make a difference to someone, even if it is only one little beggar.


    SO are there enough good people to protect all the children we are talking about?
    Probably not, but that wont stop me from protecting the child in front of me.

    I'm aware of the technical lineage stuff, but the Bible says that we are all descended from the same righteous man. Chinese are Hebrews, Australian aborigines, Eskimo etc. Noahs white children were copulating with black blood to repopulate the world.
