Previously I have mentioned about the sin of miscegenation. The basics include the ideas that in the Hebrew and Greek the word for adultery includes the meaning of miscegenation. Also the Hebrew word translated bastard in Deuteronomy 23:2 means to alienate, a mongrel. Then there are the many instances of “mixed multitude” found in scripture. However there are more references that are a bit more subtle.
Hosea 7:8 Ephraim mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake not turned.
What is a cake not turned? Imagine that you are making pancakes and you forget to flip one. It will be black on one side and white on the other.
Hosea 7:10 “And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face”.
Why? Because his face looks noticeably different. It is unfortunate that simple phrases like these are ignored or not understood all through both old and new testaments.
Hosea 7:9 “Strangers have devoured his strength”.
Why didn’t your preacher teach this? Because he wasn’t taught it. It hasn’t been taught for a long time. Likely your great, great, great, great grandfather knew it. Race mixing is a death penalty offense, or as John said it “a sin unto death”. Why is race mixing wrong? Because it gives the strength of your heritage to another people.
