It is a fact that klansmen don’t like black men dating or marrying white women. The KKK is a hate group known for their views on white supremacy dating back to the 19th century, when blacks were terrorized by this group. The Klu Klux Klan believes their position against a black man marrying a white woman is supported by the Bible.
However the Bible gives no such authority for their views. Here is one of the Old Testament verses they quote in an attempt to justify that the Bible supports them. There are other Old Testament scriptures teaching pretty much the same as this one, but we won’t mention those because this one will speak for all the other verses.
Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons (Deuteronomy 7:3, NIV).
God created all races and there is no way that He would hate something which He created and called “good” in the beginning (Genesis 1:31; Acts 17:26).
What the Lord is prohibiting here is being converted by the evil people of the land to serve other gods. See verse four, where God said the following:
For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly(Deuteronomy 7:4, KJV).
The Klansman has it wrong! God isn’t concern about the skin color or nationality, instead He is concerned about the cultures and beliefs of these foreigners, the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, etc. (1 Samuel 16:7).
They could have been dark skinned. Lily white skinned. Yellow skinned, etc, that wasn’t the point. It was what they would do to the Israelites that worried God. And by the way, I ask again, who created these people?
God did! God doesn’t have racial discrimination against His own creation because He made it and said it was good (Genesis 1:31).
The Bible also teaches that God has made one human race out of all men upon the earth and He expects all those men to seek Him (Acts 17:26-28).
Those of every nation who seek Him and do righteousness will be accepted by Him (Acts 10:34-35). God has never given a command to one group of men, telling them to mistreat another group based upon the race of that group. Such would be a huge dumb act and would cast concern about the Lord Himself as the Creator. The premise of the Klansman argument is pure foolishness (2 Peter 3:17; Colossias 2:18-23).
So what God was talking about is evil company corrupting good manners (1 Corinthians 15:33). By falling in love with the people of the lands, the Jews would be influenced by their heathen ways and lead astray from God just like Solomon was, and that is why God told Israel not to intermarry (1 Kings 11:1-10). None of it was racial, but cultural.
Every marriage will have ups and downs, and while it is true that a mixed-race couple might have problems that a same race couple might not have, such did not warrant a prohibition from God about marrying a person of a different race (Hebrews 13:4).
