@Willem Petzer what do you think of this, Peter Hammond is apparently a kinist: https://www.reddit.com/r/Reformed/comments/89pi4a/kinism_as_heresy/

2018-07-20 13:33:34 UTC  

what is kinism?

2018-07-20 13:45:13 UTC  

The belief that Christians should only marry within their own tribal, ethnic group

2018-07-20 13:45:13 UTC  

Ditsem! @Malcolm the Seceder, you just advanced to level 6!

2018-07-20 13:46:08 UTC  

you guys up for a debate on this?

2018-07-20 13:46:35 UTC  

thanks for the elaboration @Malcolm the Seceder

2018-07-20 13:47:45 UTC  

Um, I think it's best to stick to one's own group but I wouldn't make a rule about it.

2018-07-20 13:48:10 UTC  

fair stance

2018-07-20 13:49:06 UTC  

I think group is more cultural than racial, and those thoughts are pretty default

2018-07-20 14:21:42 UTC  

What does the bible say about it?

2018-07-20 14:22:54 UTC  

Depends who you ask.

2018-07-20 14:23:17 UTC  

I think they use the commands to the Jews not to intermingle as their basis

2018-07-20 14:24:50 UTC  

as I said, it seems like a fair default position. but I always think that the reactionary racial thing is _also_ driven by neomarxists hell bent on dividing the enemy(christians).

2018-07-20 14:25:33 UTC  

ie let's break off some of the opposition into nazism (racial socialism)

2018-07-20 14:28:35 UTC  

Yeah. If someone of an ethnic minority is a true Christian I'm less concerned about intermarriage. But I wouldn't encourage it

2018-07-20 14:29:57 UTC  

well, you would if the person was charming and intelligent and hard working and rich and courting your daughter, surely (and a Christian)

2018-07-20 14:30:30 UTC  

and legit (ie has family and they are normal)

2018-07-20 14:30:32 UTC  

I mean generally

2018-07-20 14:30:35 UTC  

not a con man

2018-07-20 14:31:40 UTC  

I think in general encouraging anything for or against in the field of marriage for people unrelated to us is impinging on free will

2018-07-20 14:33:53 UTC  

Well I doing believe in free will per se
