Is it wrong for an interracial couple to have sex?


Not if they are married.  If they are not married to each other, then it is a sin.  Interracial dating and marriage is not prohibited in any form in the Bible, contrary to what some would like to believe. There are numerous restrictions about marriage, such as, marrying only one of the opposite sex, not to marry another's current spouse (not Biblically divorced), not close relatives, etc.  But race is not a factor in marriage. There may be some difficulties for the couple caused by the prejudices of the society, but in God's sight there is no sin.  Remember we "all" came from the same two grandparents (Adam and Eve), so we really are all the same.  The key is, as in all marriages--is God leading the couple to wed.
