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.
