I've read the books excluded from the original ones chosen to be in the bible.I've read translations by Sitkin of ancient scripts. There are answers, but if you want to cling to your faith this forum is not a safe place for you. I come to this conclusion because, why would there be separate races in the first place? He created choas among them as a punishment for pride. Do your parents ever send you to different rooms when you were being bad? I am still unsure as to whether it is truly right or wrong. It makes no difference which way you "lean" or what you "think" I would like scripture proof that says this, if GOD doesn't have a problem with mixed races then the opinion of "flesh" humans has no effect on society in a whole. Here is a summary talking about the Tower of babble. I had never heard of it until I read this thread in here. I have nothing to back this up other than what I think. I don't know if God would consider it a sin though. Everyone can and could put their 2 cents worth in on this topic......you see, the only person that matters is GOD and what HE says.The idea came from 1 Kings, Chapter 11, wherein Solomon the wise turned from God because he loved and married women from other countries who did not believe in God.God did not want his followers to marry outside of their faith (and this likely is why people included race and ethnicity because, for the most part, other races and ethnicities did not believe in God).3 He had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines, and his wives turned his heart away.4 For when Solomon was old, his wives turned his heart away after other gods; and his heart was not wholly devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been.
Since the Babel story comes after the Noah story we can assume there were already boats. I come to this conclusion because, why would there be separate races in the first place?1one" thing may have had some actual function in era the bible was written (and edited by tired monks *ahem*) but doesn't have any particular function since.I'm thoroughly convinced this and many other of the archaic, obsolete "rules" from the bible continue to only be stressed by those wishing to control others in some way, or those wishing to seek flaws in others. If we really stop to think about it the whole Bible has been translated OVER AND OVER AND OVER, who knows how many things have been left out or added or just plain translated wrong? Here is a summary talking about the Tower of babble. I had never heard of it until I read this thread in here. I have nothing to back this up other than what I think.
I do believe that he created different races for a reason and he meant for us to not mix.
So many people have said to mix race is sin and state it's in the Bible. Ok, When I have read this it's my understanding they were trying to "climb" their way into Heaven without actually believing spiritually. I am still unsure as to whether it is truly right or wrong. The passage has been interperated by many theologians though and you can easily research those.
