Whether Africans’ setback can be attributed to the curse of Ham in Genesis

This publication is the response to one of the review questions for a live radio interview on my article: ‘What the Church Refuses to Teach About Christianity;’ the particular question was…

Can the Africans’ setback be attributed to the curse of Ham as mentioned in Genesis, or is it something to explain the laziness in the African or the shifting of blame on others?

First of all Africans are not under any curse! Africans’ setback is plainly the result of the lack of adequate zing for life! It should never be attributed to the curse of Ham in Genesis; unless we want to use it to explain away our laziness or blame others as you have suggested.

In any case, it was Ham’s son Canaan that was cursed, NOT Ham. But what does Ezekiel 18:19-23, say? Especially verse 20… that: “The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.” Deuteronomy 24:16 also says something similar. And especially for those of us in Christ, we can go to sleep; we are no longer under the law, but under grace; Romans 6:14. There is a good reason why there is a New Testament; or a new covenant. Hebrews 7:18-19 says: “For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God;” Referring to faith in Christ. Galatians 3:22-25 says something similar; something to the same effect.

Christianity is supposed to liberate us, and not to keep us in bondage, and that requires the teaching of sound Christian principles and not necessarily old cultures that are no longer applicable to us; so Jesus Christ was emphatic in John 8:31-32 that “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Christians, let us not abide in annulled laws and cultures, let us rather abide in the word of Jesus.

So, Africans are not under any curse! African’s setback is plainly the result of the lack of adequate zing for life! And we have the opportunity to turn things around for ourselves; that’s the crusade we of Seers are leading. We want to help as many people to get to understand the principles that govern life, especially in the light of what the Bible say, and help people to unearth their true or hidden potential, and get to achieve far more than the ordinary. And when the numbers are good enough, the fortunes of Africa will turn around for the better.
