This is exactly what happened in Israel, according to Malachi .
A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.
Jones later recalled that in 1924, his friend William Jennings Bryan had leaned over to him at a Bible conference service in Winona Lake, Indiana, and said, "If schools and colleges do not quit teaching evolution as a fact, we are going to become a nation of atheists." While he himself was not a college graduate, Jones grew determined to found a college, and on September 12, 1927, he opened Bob Jones College in Panama City, Florida, with 88 students.
Enrollment quickly rebounded, and by 1970, there were 3300 students, approximately 60% more than in 1958.As Martin Luther King, Jr., noted, a person should be judged by his or her character, not by skin color.There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10).However, the reason for this command was not skin color or ethnicity. The reason God commanded against interracial marriage for the Jews was that people of other races were worshippers of false gods.The Israelites would be led astray from God if they intermarried with idol worshippers, pagans, or heathens.In the same year, the college also ended participation in intercollegiate sports.
