You’re wrong in saying that the children of Ham didn’t contribute greatly to Biblical History. According to the Table of Nations, the Canaanites are the spawn of Ham.
The Canaanites include many of those who were *bitter *enemies of Israel: The Hittites, The Amorites, the Philistines, and the accursed Egyptians.
Israel allied with a sub-group of the Hittites known as the Gibeonites. These Gideonites became Israel’s slaves, in accordance with the Generational curse of Ham, and under God the Father’s protection, in accordance with Israel’s (rash) oath, and in addition to God’s love for all who seek shelter under his wings.
Joshua chapters 9 and 10— The Great Deception
Joshua 11 ----- There was not a city that made peace with the Children of Israel, except the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon; they took all in battle. :blackeye:
2 Samuel 21 – THERE IS BLOOD GUILT On Saul and his family, because Saul tried to exterminate the Gibeonites.
I wouldn’t say that Ham’s descendants weren’t destined to be evil. The bible verse in question suggests that Ham’s descendants are destined to be slaves.
God the Father accepted slavery during the times of the Old Testament, to the extent where he commanded Moses to create law defending the dignity of slaves.
Early Christianity practiced slavery.
Masters were wisely counseled by the Apostle to treat their slaves with consideration in return for their services: “And you, masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatenings; knowing that the Lord both of them and you is in heaven, and there is not respect of persons with Him.”(14) They were also told to remember that the slave had no reason to regret his lot, seeing that he is “the freeman of the Lord,” nor the freeman, seeing that he is “the bondman of Christ,”(15) to feel proud, and to give his commands with haughtiness. It was impressed upon masters that they ought to recognize in their slaves their fellow men, and respect them accordingly, recognizing that by nature they were not different from themselves, that by religion and in relation to the majesty of their common Lord all were equal. These precepts, so well calculated to introduce harmony among the various parts of domestic society, were practised by the Apostles themselves.
The Vatican says that slavery done in malice is BAD!
ENCYCLICAL OF POPE LEO XIII ON THE
ABOLITION OF SLAVERY
To the Bishops of Brazil.
- In the presence of so much suffering, the condition of slavery, in which a considerable part of the great human family has been sunk in squalor and affliction now for many centuries, is deeply to be deplored; for the system is one which is wholly opposed to that which was originally ordained by God and by nature. The Supreme Author of all things so decreed that man should exercise a sort of royal dominion over beasts and cattle and fish and fowl, but never that men should exercise a like dominion over their fellow men. As St. Augustine puts it: “Having created man a reasonable being, and after His own likeness, God wished that he should rule only over the brute creation; that he should be the master, not of men, but of beasts.” From this it follows that “the state of slavery is rightly regarded as a penalty upon the sinner; thus, the word slave does not occur in the Bible until the just man Noe branded with it the sin of his son. It was sin, therefore, which deserved this name; it was not natural.”(4)
You believe that you are of cursed lineage? You are a descendant of Ham???
Have no fear, you won’t be punished for the sins of your evil ancestors, but for your own personal sin! You are your own soul! Think about Ruth, Christ’s great-great Grandmother! A Moabite!
And Caleb, the Kenizzite, with Edomite blood in his veins! Despite being a descendant of the careless, jealous older brother, he was one of the only two spies who trusted in the Lord!
Don’t forget about Mose’s Family! They were non-Israelites!!
Zipporah, who saved Mose’s life via circumcision!
Father and brother in-laws, Jethro, who gave Moses good advice, and Hobab, who helped guide Israel through the wilderness!
You can still be a saint!
