Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?Unless you go to a Christian school where you only meet devout Christian teens, it is likely that you will have friends that are non-Christians.
The Bible is clear that when both parties are believers (equally yoked), interracial marriage is not wrong.
A Christian couple contemplating marriage must prayerfully and carefully consider the impact their marriage will have within their cultural context, their family relationships, future children and the society in which they live.
An important Bible verse about understanding interracial marriage is 2 Corinthians : "Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers." That last word, "unbelievers" is of key importance.
A Christian should not marry a non-Christian no matter how kind and good they are. Deuteronomy 7:1-6 tells the Israelites to destroy all the inhabitants of the Canaan land and not to intermarry with them because they would "turn your sons away from following Me, that they may serve other gods." The same key concern of 2 Corinthians is again expressed here.

Most people consider it missionary dating when you date a non-believer thinking that you will "convert" him or her to Christianity.
Some people also call it "evangelistic dating." While most people fall into missionary dating because they find someone they are attracted to and want to date, there are some people that seek out missionary dating opportunities in order to convert people to Christianity.
Non-Christians do not always live by Biblical standards, so the dating relationship can be big on temptations for the Christian.
