Many countries are confronting the unprecedented challenge of racial diversity in postmodern society. During the last two decades, Korean society experienced what Thomas Kunh called a "paradigm shift". Traditionally Koreans have lived in a monoculture for more than five thousand years; however we are becoming a multicultural society at the infant level. There are about one million foreign people which consist of two percent of the whole population. It is the same figure which caused social problems of minorities in Europe. Conflicts among communities and ethnic groups can occur at anytime in this society. Unfortunately, we are not prepared for the possible future problems. Therefore, this paper examined the general concept of a multicultural society, giving the Biblical view regarding foreign people in a country. As Christians we need to pursue to resolve the divergence between the majority and the minority, and to remove discrimination in cultural, social, economic, and ultimately political spheres.
