Christian mom gives awkward — but sincere — advice for when your daughter brings home a black man

interracial relationship
Americans generally don’t like to talk about racial relations — and with good reason.

Having open discussions about racial biases is incredibly uncomfortable and often involves acknowledging your own prejudices. That’s why it’s interesting to read Christian mother Gaye Clark’s awkward — but nonetheless very heartfelt and genuine — advice to Christian parents who would feel uncomfortable if their child decided to marry someone of a different race or ethnic background.

Writing over at The Gospel Coalition, explains how she felt when her own daughter brought home a black man who would eventually become her husband.

“All ethnicities are made in the image of God, have one ancestor, and can trace their roots to the same parents, Adam and Eve,” she explains. “As you pray for your daughter to choose well, pray for your eyes to see clearly, too. Glenn moved from being a black man to beloved son when I saw his true identity as an image bearer of God, a brother in Christ, and a fellow heir to God’s promises.”

Now, there’s clearly some uncomfortable subtext here — after all, should it really take learning that this man was a Christian for you to see him as something more than “a black man?”

All the same, recognizing prejudice is the first step to overcoming it, which is what Clark is doing here. Click here to read more.

The story of Adam and Eve and the command to love God and your neighbor as yourself is one of the first things you learn in the Bible, the problem is found that the Bible is seldom the standard of living, but the largest religion in America is white supremacy. It is very rare to see Christianity played out like it was in the book of Acts. Although, there was a similar division among Jews & Gentiles.

There is real power in unifying under the umbrella of Jesus Christ. It creates an atmosphere for supernatural blessings to fall. God is most pleased when his creation obeys his word and not their feelings. Obeys his word and not some wicked man. Obeys his word and follows him, even when others are so filled with hate.

Set your eyes on Jesus, read, believe and execute what is found in the Word.

‘I’ll never forgive you.’Christian’ dad said the interracial relationship had ‘disrespected’ the family

interracial marriage
A young woman has publicly shamed her racist father after he sent a letter saying her family would leave her homeless and never speak to her again if she continued to date a black man.

Stephanie Hicks from Keller, Texas, shared the vile note on Twitter in which she was told she had ‘disrespected her family in every way’ by having a boyfriend with a different skin colour to her.

The dad, who claimed to be a Christian, gave her a final ultimatum – saying there were three empty suitcases waiting for her belongings to be packed in if she stayed with her partner, called Nike. 

He wrote: ‘While it may not be anti-biblical, I know I will never accept it, and I’ll never forgive you. My belief is that interracial relationships are despicable. Vulgar and reprehensible.

‘There’s nothing worse than a half-black, and I’m crushed that my own daughter has entered into such a disgusting relationship.’

He went on to say that if he chose Nike ‘over her family’ he never wanted any contact with her again and asked her to change her name as he didn’t want to be associated with her. Read more

316AE74A00000578-3456962-image-a-9_1456055423043This type of pseudo Christianity is prolific in the white church. This is why there is a huge division in the voting among whites and blacks who both claim to be Christians. Is Christ divided? Did He only die for one type of people and not all? Are not Christians one by the blood of Jesus? Also, I know its not Biblical, but I am human? Really? You’re supposed to be dead. Mortify the flesh.

You cannot raise someone in righteousness and cherry pick the Scriptures. The world right now is looking better. It is time for you to grow up. I am a Christian and this type of hate is unacceptable. Why? Because it is not supported by the Scriptures. The Scriptures are foundational for the Christian, like the Constitution is supposed to be for the United States of America.

Is Interracial Marriage A Sin? http://wp.me/p11mpq-1EW

Let’s Pray: Lord Jesus Christ, let your fire fall on this family and this relationship. Move by your power and restore what the enemy is trying to destroy. Jesus open the eyes of the blind and let the love of Jesus be poured like rain inside them all. Let God lift the standard and may His standard be kept. Let the name CHRISTIAN mean more than just a word, but fasten its meaning within each of their hearts in Jesus name. I blow out this white man demon and send him to the pit Now. In Jesus name. I send 1000 angels right now and let them rescue and resolve. In Jesus name.
