up right tree and scofield
You might think about Canaan , the son of Ham. Ham looked on Noah who was naked and passed out. Noah put a curse on his descents
You might ask why did he put the curse on only
Canaan the youngest son of Ham?
This curse of Noah against Canaan was used during the slavery time in our history as a way to justify slavery since most people believed the black skin on the African singled him out as being a son of Canaan therefore it was permitted that the slave owner could make anyone with negro blood a slave.This was preached in the pulpits all over the south to justify slavery.
Another thing to think about why was what Ham did looking on Noah naked while Noah lay passed out drunk wrong ?
The commandant says Honor thy father and mother, so some how he didn't honer Noah even tho' Noah lay drunk as a skunk, perhaps he made fun of Noah or something at least he didn't honor him.
I found a note said see Scofield note Gen. 9.1 but since I don't own a scofield bible can't read it.
