    Non-issue for me. We are all of one race, the human race.

    And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, -Acts 17:26a

    Not a problem at all. Skin is just a color - some darker, some lighter. Doesn't make one iota of difference.

    It may be because they are really competitive and don't want to be in the same race. So they pick different races to compete in. That way it's fun for both.




    as far as skin race, no issue at all. And why would it be? The Bible says that a man can marry a Christian woman. We are not to marry the unsaved. Never does it say we are to stay in the same race.

    Preaching In Jesus expresses my thoughts exactly to the word. In fact, I have no problem with a pastor having a husband, as long as the husband is not a deacon. Co-mingling of offices is a sin.

    Are you one of those that believes are saved? Why do you think we call it Southern Baptist?

    When will people stop using that stupid statement. There are different races-whether we like it or not. I realize that
    Gib said in jest "But if she were a Yankee"
    actually any difference in a couple -that can be a potential hard situation.

    I have a pastor friend here in the Salt City - he is black -his wife is white. He told me he believes his mixed marriage has been a deterrent to his ministry. BTW, his church was in the Black section of town.

    I agree - it should not make a difference - but remember humans have a sinful nature.

    I married a Canadian. That's a Yankee that adds "eh?" to every sentence. So when you consider a born and bred Yankee pastor with a Canadian wife, eh?, it's a wonder anyone comes to church.

    And, Gib, I hate you. :laugh:
