Interracial Marriage?

A Biblical View of “Race”

Part 5



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit the full-size Noah’s Ark attraction in Northern Kentucky.


All this week we’ve looked at what the Bible and science say about the issue of so-called “race.” We’ve learned there’s only one race—the human race. So, biologically, there’s absolutely no such thing as an “interracial” marriage.

The Bible only talks about one biological race, but it does say there are two spiritual races: the saved race and the unsaved race. Marriages between these two spiritual races are forbidden in Scripture. Believers aren’t knowingly to marry unbelievers.

Because we’re all descended from Adam and Eve, we can get rid of the idea of interracial marriage. It comes from prejudice, not from God’s Word.

We’re all one race—we’re all members of the one human race.
