Pastor Dwight McKissic To Take On The Curse Of Ham As It Was Once Taught Among His Denomination.

 Cups up to Pastor Dwight McKissic who's planning in the coming weeks to write a post documenting & detailing “the curse of Ham” as taught among Southern Baptist. The SBC Voices reveals Southern Baptist taught this in certain places even in the ‘70’s & ‘80’s. Basis 4 segregation.

 We who are bible readers know that the "Curse of Ham" refers to the supposed curse upon Canaan, Ham's son, that was imposed by the biblical patriarch Noah. The curse occurs in the Book of Genesis and concerns Noah's drunkenness and the accompanying shameful act perpetrated by his son Ham, the father of Canaan (Gen. 9:20–27). 

The "Curse Of Ham" that originated white supremacy, the roots of  white supremacy within a ‘Christian context,’is a theory once prominently taught by the SBC in the early years — echoing the belief that God through Noah ordained descendants of Africa to be subservient to Anglos — which provided the theological justification for slavery and segregation.

 In my humble opinion, this theory is on its last leg, sort of like a corned rat, if you will, it must come out for its very survival. The fact that Pastor Dwight McKissic, keep poking at the corned rat is a good thing. 

The controversies raised by this story regarding the nature of Ham's transgression, and the question of why Noah cursed Canaan when Ham had sinned, have been debated for over 2,000 years. The story's original purpose may have been to justify the subjection of the Canaanite people to the Israelites, but in later centuries, the narrative was interpreted by some Christians, Muslims, and Jews as an explanation for black skin, as well as slavery. Nevertheless, most Christians, Muslims, and Jews now disagree with such interpretations, because in the biblical text, Ham himself is not cursed, and race or skin color is never mentioned.

  1. One of many reasons I'm no longer Southern Baptist. They have been on the wrong side of history for too long. Women are no longer property, blacks are no longer under the so called "curse of Ham", and homosexuals are not (and never were) an "abomination". Even in the bible you saw God's word changing to reflect changing times.

    1. I here you Anonymous, as a Christian I have often had debates with others about this. I know that there was no real basis for racism that white racist try to justify in the Bible. However I also know that people have tried to use anything to justify their morality in order to feel better about what they do. Instead of admitting something was wrong, they would rather dig up bad justifications so that they can take away any responsibility. It is like the people who believe the Bible promotes misogyny.

    2. YOU are a LIAR. Homosexuality is and always be an ABOMINATION!

    3. The Bible has always taught respect for women. From the time God created Eve, He said He created her in his own image. Instead of misunderstanding Scripture or better yet your display of ignorance because you probably never read it. I suggest you abreast yourself to what's really going on with women in this society and this world, where women are indoctrinated to believe all the nonsense of a feminist movement.

  2. At one time Texas schoolchildren was being taught ‘the Curse of Ham.’

  3. Back when i was in high school, (late 1970’s) I had a couple of friends who were LDS (Mormon). At that time, the Mormon church officially viewed and treated black people as lesser than whites. i remember asking my friends about this, and one of them said “It is the mark of Cain. Cain was turned black.” I said “How do you know Cain wasn’t turned WHITE???” They stopped hanging out with me after that…also because I was not down to be a Mormon. I am not a fan of fear based Patriarchal religions. I was such a literal minded child. In Parochial school, when I learned the story of Cain and Abel at the tender age of 6, I thought that the mark of Cain meant he got a great big “C” put on his forehead….doesn’t really address the Ham issue…but honestly the vengeful God of the old testament was never one I could relate to.

  4. This guy is a race baiter.

    WHEREAS, many Southern Baptist churches once misappropriated and distorted the Bible to attempt to legitimize white supremacy, slavery, and racial hierarchy, including through the so-called “curse of Ham” narrative which errantly construed Genesis 9:25-27 to say that God ordained the descendants of Ham to be marked with dark skin and be relegated to a subordinated status based on race; and


    WHEREAS, the residue of this doctrine remains in use today by white supremacists and continues to distort the witness of the church and present a stumbling block to the Gospel we preach; and

    GIVE Names. GO to these brethren and correct THEM. Don't come over the internet to write in such generality.
    Who are these "white supremacists and who continues to distort the witness of the church".

    1. I wouldn’t call him a race baiter, he is apart of this denomination and trying to make changes from within, good job Pastor McKissic.

    2. Ms. Ann. No disrespect. If he sought to make changes within, rather than cite racist beliefs of men who are dead and gone for sometime now, he should address those specifically who preaches the curse of Ham as biblical teaching to support racism, if in fact there SB preachers preaching this error. Most, if not all SB churches hold to the correct interpretation of the Genesis passage.

      Likewise if there is residue as he calls it, he should confront and correct those ministers with the truth of Scriputures, like Paul did Peter when Peter exhibited discriminatory behavior against the Gentiles.

      This man calls himself a preacher. And he should know how to handle conflict when a "brother" sins against him. He is to go to the brother alone about his specific sin. If the brother fails to heed him, he is to take another brother with him. If the sinning brother fail then, he is to be taken before the church and kicked out of the church if he refuses to repent of any actions there.

      This guy will never bring forth fruit because he operates in the Flesh. And in my opinion, I believe He maybe getting paid to sow discord among the brethern.

  5. If people taught the Word and stopped teaching social agendas we may be able to see a change in the hearts of men and women.
