“Stop! The Bible Doesn’t Support Racism”
Genesis 9:18-29

Introduction:

There is no shortage of controversial issues raised in the opening chapters of Genesis. The book of Genesis has much to say about the subject of Creation, the family, the role of husband, wife, and children, homosexuality, capital punishment, and the role of government.

Today, we come to a passage that has been wrongly used to support white racism. Our goal in this preaching series is to discover the truth concerning the curse on Canaan, and to examine our own hearts regarding race relations.

As we journey through our subject matter we’ll use Genesis 9 as a spring board for our preaching series. We’ll examine several truths, some which may be hurtful or even alarming, and yet all which should be instructional.

  I.  The Description of Noah’s Sin Is Given:  Gen. 9:20-21

 II.  The Description of Ham’s Sin Is Stated:  Gen. 9:22

III.  The Curse on Canaan Is Pronounced:  Gen. 9:25-27

BOTTOM LINE:  There is only ONE RACE . . . the HUMAN RACE. Four Bible passages make this abundantly clear:

  • Genesis 1:27 – We were all created in “God’s image”.

  • Acts 17:26 – We all descended from one human father.

  • Revelation 5:9 – Heaven will be filled with a multitude of people and (races). No one race is special:

    • Tribe (Phulos) =

    • Language (Glossa) =

    • People (Laos) =

    • Nation (Ethnos) =

  • Galatians 3:28 – We are all one in Jesus Christ.
