The stipulation is that a Christian marry another Christian. After all, what union should God and Ba'al have. However, if you marry a non-Christian, don't get a divorce as you are the instument through which the Holy Spirit can get to your spouse and children.


Nice work speaking scripture without quoting it. It really shows understanding. I remember the verses you're referring to. I take this to mean that a person is their spouse's heaviest influence interpersonally and vice versa, therefore it's easy to sway from the right path or at least makes a lot of decisions very difficult, especially in parenting.

Let's take it a step further...

Scenario: Should a Christian even date a non-Christian?

When I was growing up I always thought I would marry a Latina, or Indian woman. I despised white women and I couldnt stand black women. Asian women were hot but never got much play from them until UMCP. Eventually I "dated" every race there is possible and I got over hating white women and the whole couldnt stand black women thing was just that they were young and were to damn Ghetto. I am now married to a black woman and its hard sometimes to relate on different things but we have something in common WE ARE ALL HUMAN and that God made us all. I love my wife and through her I have been inspired to research my own background and my ancistors. By the way I am Indian from Trinidad and Tobago and my ancistors are from India.

What does UMCP stand for exactly?

I am white and Christian. I have many friends, black and white. I was raised in a very racist home. As I grew and leaned on the Lord for understanding, I began to realize that black people are just people like me. The school I grew up in was very racially separated. If a black guy dated a white girl, it was just for a trophy. If a man and a woman are in love, whatever colors they are, that is fine they should get married. The problem is, there are more involved in the situation than the man and woman. There will soon be children. They will have a tough time dealing with acceptance from both sides. Then there is family on both sides. I believe that if you weigh the pros and cons before you get married and can live with the outcome then go ahead.

Actually the only thing that the Bible really says to my knowledge on the subject is that you are not supposed to be unequally yoked. This is relation to beliefs though, not race.
King Solomon was married to an Ethiopian Princess, so I don’t believe that inter-racial marriage is in anyway against Christian or Hebrew Belief.
Ruth was also a Goium or Gentile that was married to a Hebrew.

Homosexuality is not named specifically. Sodom and Gomorahh were known not just for homosexuality but all kind of sexual perversions and lustfulness. Ethiopians are not black if that's what your saying in that they were different from Solom's race. They were caucasian but are black today because of the Sudanese migrating to Ethiopia. That's were the Falasha Jews themselves try to preserve their Jewry depsite the heavy Negro influx. I don't know if it is listed as a sin but some things you need a consious for.

Deu 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

1Ti 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

Exo 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.



These are just a few verses that show that fornication and adultery are considered a sin in the bible, whether it is homosexual or not. Fornication is having sex with anyone that is not part of a God recognized marriage relationship. In order for a marriage to be, “a God blessed union”, it has to have the ability to produce offspring, and is thus Male/Female ONLY. If you believe anything else, I suggest finding a different religion because to say a homosexual relationship is acceptable before God is only lying to yourself. I can go on with the Bible verses, but this is not the point of this thread, and the only reason that the topic of Homosexuality was brought up was in response to another persons comment.


One last comment to leave you with though:
I have seen threads here that say that the seatbelt law is acceptable because it keeps the cost of insurance down by preventing injuries, therefore by the same form of logic, I say they pass an anti-homosexuality bill to decrease insurance premiums, or remove the seatbelt law:


Originally from www.theconservativevoice.com...
One study determined that homosexual males have from between 20 to 106 sexual partners per year. It’s no wonder that homosexual men account for over 50% of all hepatitis cases, and still account for over 50% of all AIDS cases despite the fact that they only make up 1-3% of the population. Homosexual men and women share a markedly increased risk of contracting nearly all forms of STD. The men frequently suffer from other sodomy related injuries, and are far more likely to be murdered (likely by another homosexual) than their heterosexual counterparts; this, due to the typically raucous and oft anonymous nature of the gay lifestyle.

All of these things considered, and given that the cost to treat an AIDS patient averages nearly $350,000, the homosexual lifestyle shares responsibility, by no small measure, for this Country’s skyrocketing health care costs.

The costs of keeping our elderly hypochondriacs stocked up on their happy pills, etc. dwarfs any costs you want to label as 'gay' ones. I don't think there is a thing wrong with gay people, except for the vile way some treat them. If I was gay, I wonder if I would be able to stay sane with so much hate and reproachment always in my face. Love all people, let gay people live, what business is it of yours? How do they impact you at all?
Live and let live. Accept them for who they are and we will all be better off.
I have been in relationships with women from a variety of different ethnic groups, and their skin color etc. never had any bearing on my choice to ask them out. Though to my white friends and family, I was a traitor, and was asked why I couldn't have just picked a white girl? I never thought that way.
Sticking to your kin for procreation is called inbreeding, and instead of creating a master race, it creates increased birth defects.
Love unconditionally.

I dont really have a problem with gays

But people shouldnt use our trying to accept interaccial marriage as an excuse to campaign for gay marriage. Maybe they could let them get married... just not in a Christian church

private churches that do not want to do so, shouldn't have to wed gays. i just want gays to have the same equal legal rights and benefits that we give straight couples, so there is no more unfair biases or stigmas.

thats what i meant in the post... it shouldnt be a marriage in the eyes of the church, but i guess its neccessary to make it legal in the eyes of the government.

i am glad we agree, and feel it is necessary cuz any less is discriminatory. peace and harmony is all we should be aiming for, and if your particular church opposes gay marriage, that is just fine, no different than any prohibited activities in any church, ie, alcohol, tv, dancing, etc.
love to all, we are all one
