If the idea of mixed marriages makes you cringe, maybe you should cut the book of Ruth out of your Bible. Ruth was a Moabitess, and Boaz was an Israelite... neither were two people of the same skin color or ethnic background. It was a divinely arranged love story that ends with a beautiful marriage... the kind that mirrors what will be one day between Jesus and the Church. An ethnically diverse Bride presented to a loving Groom.
