Christadelphian Bible Mission Racism

The CBM say that
blacks are cursed
by God to be servants
to the whites
By John Bedson

On the CBM Tanzania website there is an exposition of Genesis Chapter Nine in which they explain to black African candidates for baptism that according to the Bible they are the descendants of Canaan (a grandson of Noah) who was the son of Ham (a son of Noah) who fathered the evil Canaanites who were mostly slaughtered by Joshua when he ethnically cleansed the land of Canaan and established Hebrew rule in their place. 



In the same document the CBM describe the Canaanite ancestors of the black Africans as follows:

"In later times the Canaanites manifested the same evil conduct as their ancestor, for they developed into a depraved, wicked, dissolute, immoral people, incapable of conversion, and deserving only of the sword of Joshua."

The CBM go on to tell their black African brethren and sisters that God not only annihilated most of their evil ancestors but the remainder should be slaves and servants to white people:

"A servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren" — This portion of the curse relates to Ham rather than to Canaan, as is indicated by the singular pronoun "he/his brethren". The term "a servant of servants" expresses the most humiliating servitude; and this has been the experience of the descendants of Ham as a whole, rather than merely the Canaanite portion of his race. Whilst those Canaanites that survived the sword of Joshua were put under servitude, the coloured peoples of the earth (descendants of Ham), generally, with few exceptions, have experienced similar servitude."

Not all Christadelphians believe this CBM filth about their black African brethren and sisters. Writing in his book 'Genesis: A Commentary' Christadelphian Duncan Heaster wrote:
“The idea that the black peoples descended from Ham/Canaan and were to be servants is sadly a 19th Century piece of racism that has too much acceptance in our community.”



The CBM interpret Genesis 9:25 the same way
as the Neo-Nazis, KKK, and Alt-Right racists
in the recent Charlottesville USA outrage 
This is why white CBM workers treat their black African brethren and sisters with a condescending, superior attitude, call them "babes" on the CBM website, don't trust them to run their own religion or ecclesias, don't trust them with money, dictate everything to them including what they can and cannot believe, who they must disfellowship and who can or cannot be re-admitted back into fellowship. They do this without regard for the wishes of the local black brethren and sisters who have no choice but to accept CBM rule.

White CBM workers, link brethren and the CBM committee impose on the black Africans harsh and repressive rules and regulations without telling them that in white liberal ecclesias in the rest of the world, many of those rules do not apply and that many white Christadelphians are allowed by their ecclesias to believe and to behave in ways that are forbidden to black Africans.

Why? Because the CBM believe that white Europeans are descended from Japheth, but the blacks are descended from Ham! 
Ex-Christadelphians reject CBM
Christadelphian white supremacy teaching
and support equal status for black
brethren and sisters

And what do the white racist CBM brethren tell their black subjects about their wonderful white ancestor Japheth?

"God shall enlarge Japheth" ..... Japheth means Enlarger and he stands for the European people's of the earth. From earliest times they have been known for their inventiveness and exploratory zeal. The Greeks were great explorers and colonists, and their example has been followed by the peoples of the western world ever since. Thus enlargement has characterised the descendants of Japheth."

 But wait ..... it gets worse for the poor black African Christadelphians! According to the CBM:
"And he shall dwell in the tents of Shem" ......... In fulfilment of this promise, Gentiles have been incorporated into the hope of Israel, Paul wrote: "The gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew (Shem) first, and also to the Greek (Japheth)" ........... "And Canaan (the coloured people) shall be his servant"

It appears that to the CBM the world is divided into three categories:



1. The white Europeans who are blessed by God. (Japheth)


2. The Jews who are the people of God. (Shem)

3. The blacks who are their slaves and servants. (Ham)



THIS IS RACIST GARBAGE!


Can you believe that the Christadelphian CBM not only believe this nonsense themselves, but they are even teaching it to Sub-Saharan Africans in their correspondence courses!

Why do the Christadelphians in the UK continue to give money this corrupt organisation?

Why should black African Christadelphians tolerate this outrage to their dignity written in their CBM correspondence courses?

White Christadelphian racism is alive and well. Watch this video of a Christadelphian speaker telling a Christadelphian audience what he thinks of negroes.

    I greet you by the name of our Lord Jesus-Christ.

    I am so surprised at reading your exposition on the CBM today. Your message says "the CBM divide the world into three parts: Whites, blessed by God; Jews, people of God and Black, their servants". I have never seen that kind of message from the CBM. Where do you find all what you are writing? You are terrifying us Blacks.

    For proof, can you send me a copy justifying your exposé?

    1. Go to: http://www.cbm.org.uk/Gen07.pdf
      and read the CBM Christadelphians in their own words:

      “When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him, he said, "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be to his brothers." He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem; and let Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.” Genesis 9:24-27

      “All the nations of the earth are descended from Ham (the father of Canaan), Shem and Japheth.

      1. Japheth was the father of men and women who settled in the Western world, particularly Europe.

      2. Shem was the father of the Semitic people, in particular the Jews.

      3. Ham was the father of people who settled in Africa.”

      Now go to the CBM African (Tanzania) correspondence course: http://cbm-tz.org/node/122?language=sw

      In their exposition of Genesis 9:25, right at the end of their comments on that verse, they say:

      “The coloured peoples of the earth (descendants of Ham), generally, with few exceptions, have experienced similar servitude.”

      There is your proof that the CBM and the Christadelphians believe that blacks are the descendents of Ham and his son Canaan.

      Now read the disgusting things they say about Negros (who the CBM say are the descendents of Ham and his son Canaan) in their comments on Genesis 9:25:

      “................. Ham's conduct caused a curse to rest upon his offspring. In later times the Canaanites manifested the same evil conduct as their ancestor, for they developed into a depraved, wicked, dissolute, immoral people, incapable of conversion, and deserving only of the sword of Joshua .......... “A servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren" — This portion of the curse relates to Ham rather than to Canaan, as is indicated by the singular pronoun "he/his brethren". The term "a servant of servants" expresses the most humiliating servitude; and this has been the experience of the descendants of Ham as a whole, rather than merely the Canaanite portion of his race. Whilst those Canaanites that survived the sword of Joshua were put under servitude (Josh. 9:23; 1 Kings 9:20-21), the coloured peoples of the earth (descendants of Ham), generally, with few exceptions, have experienced similar servitude.”

      The Hebrew word for “servant” in this chapter is the word “slave.” The CBM and Christadelphians believe that black people are cursed by God to be slaves to the whites because they are descended from Ham and Canaan!!!

      Now read the CBM interpretation of verse 26 in the same document where they explain that Abraham and his descendents the Jews are descended from Shem:

      "And he said, Blessed be Yahweh Elohim of Shem" ..... the blessing ascribed to Shem points particularly to the manner in which his descendants have excelled: namely, in religion. Shem was appointed as the channel of all true worship. It reached out to all mankind through Abraham, David, and the Lord Jesus Christ, all of whom descended from this son of Noah.

      Now read the CBM interpretation of verse 27 in the same document where they explain that the white Europeans are descended from Japheth:

      "God shall enlarge Japheth" ............. Japheth means Enlarger and here stands for the European people's of the earth. From earliest times they have been known for their inventiveness and exploratory zeal. The Greeks were great explorers and colonists, and their example has been followed by the peoples of the western world ever since. Thus enlargement has characterised the descendants of Japheth. ............And Canaan shall be his servant" — See note to v. 26.”

      - This last comment on Canaan demonstrates that the CBM believe the descendents of Canaan, the Black Africans, are intended to be slaves to the white Europeans.

    2. Continued from my last comment .....

      Now go to: http://www.christadelphian.or.tz/node/128?language=sw and read the CBM Christadelphians saying the same thing as they comment on Genesis 6:10:
      "…………. Noah's three sons became three racial groups that comprised all mankind after the Flood.......... "Ham" — His name means hot, dark, or swarthy. (Africans). The descendants of Ham ultimately occupied those portions of the earth that are expressed by his name, and became swarthy in appearance. "And Japheth" — His name means enlarger, expansion. The Japhetic races the (white) European races have been noted for their restless energy, particularly in the fields of exploration and inventiveness, by which they have enlarged their possessions or their scope of knowledge.”

    3. Bedson,

      Trying to understand your message, I noticed that it concerns not only the African Christadelphians, but all the Black of the world.
      I didn't see any proof that the CBM teach or write that in their books. What I needed from you was a copy of e-book written by themselves CBM. But you messed it.

      If what you are saying about the Black, that they are from Canaan "a servant of servants", then you mean God rejected the Black completely.

      Africa has so many churches full of millions of Black worshipping to God every day.

      By your message, all what the Black are doing is nothing because God rejected them a long time ago.

      As the Black are rejected by God, according to you "Whites", then the movement you are leading is not important too. A servant will remain a servant because it is God's will.

      My advice to you: if you thought only the CBM tries to interpret the Bible against the Black, so you should lead a religious community with a different way of teaching the Bible. By that, the Black could join your religion. They could say that you teach the truth hidden for a long time by the White.

    4. You misunderstand. I am NOT saying that blacks are the descendants of Ham and Canaan. That is what the CBM are saying and the documents that I have linked to are all CBM e-documents. Have you clicked the links to go to the CBM documents? You asked for CBM documents and I have provided links to them.

      I don't believe any of that nonsense about God rejecting black people and that they should be servants to the whites. That is CBM teaching, not mine.

      Black Africans have been tricked into joining a white supremacist religion that teaches that all blacks are descended from Ham and Canaan and are cursed by God.

      Sure the CBM think that blacks can be saved, but do you as a black person think that the reason that blacks were slaves is because God cursed them to that fate? Is God that cruel?

      If the CBM are correct, where did the Chinese come from? They are not black or white but yellow.

      Do you seriously think that you are descended from Ham and Canaan? There is no proof of such a thing. It is just CBM racism that is no longer believed by liberal Christians and liberal Christadelphians.

      The CBM do not operate in white countries because they think that the whites are clever enough to understand the religion for themselves and to behave correctly. But in black African countries the CBM have controlled your religion for fifty years because they don't trust black people to manage the religion without constant supervision from the whites.

      African blacks are treated like second class Christadelphians. I am suggesting that you should have the self confidence to become independent from the CBM, just like the white Christadelphians are independent of the CBM. The CBM cannot and dare not tell the whites what to do and how to behave or the white Christadelphians would tell them to go away.

      Why do you let the whites control your religion? It makes no sense to me.

    5. Ebengo: You are a 'white supremacist' in a black skin. I am a 'black lives matter/equal rights for negroes' believer in a white skin.

      Why are you not ashamed of your beliefs?

      How much are the CBM paying you to be treacherous to your own race and fawn adoration to their white man's religion?

      I repeat: How much are the CBM paying you to bow down to white CBM Christadelphians and be their servant?

      Are you like Mayende Erisania in Uganda who is only on the CBM payroll for the cash that they send to him?

      How much are they paying you Ebengo?

      Follow the example of Emmanuel Gubika in Uganda who resigned from the CBM over this issue and now only eats one meal a day, goes hungry, and lost his children's education fees because he spat in the face of his CBM masters.

  2. In our African culture, we always need to worship. Pushing people to become Atheists, is a bad way of claiming for freedom.
    Make the innovation. Bring a kind of religious group to Africa, and you will be welcome. They need your preaching in the church. The way you are using is not very fair to reach the large part of Africa. So, try to meet your friends so as to convince them to change this move into another one very excellent.

    1. Once again you misunderstand. I am NOT advocating Atheism in Africa. I am advocating reformed Christadelphian Theism.

      Only in the Developed World am I advocating Atheism.

      But Africa is not developed so they will have to continue as Theists until they become sufficiently developed, educated and intelligent to realise that Atheism is the correct way to go.

      Moreover I want African Christadelphian Theism to be African led, not led by white people like me.

      But before I came along and took an interest in African Christadelphianism the black African Christadelphians were humbly following their CBM masters who called them "babes" on their website and ruled over them like white colonialists.

      I am advocating a reformed Theist religion that is better suited to African customs and thinking. Africans are warm and friendly and forgiving. The white CBM are harsh, superior and unforgiving.

      It may seem strange that I am inventing and promoting a reformed Theist religion in Africa even though I am an Atheist, but I am being pragmatic.

      I see Ex-Christadelphianism as an Atheist/Theist alliance. We have both schools of thought in the Ex-Christadelphians. As editor of this website I have a responsibility to both Atheists and Theists.

      I'll promote Evolutionary Creationism and Theistic Evolution to the Christadelphian Special Creationists even though I myself don't believe it. I'll use Quantum Physics, Quantum Entanglement, the Micro Universe, High Energy Physics, Quantum Field Theory, the Anthropogenic Universe Theory and many other advanced scientific theories to demonstrate that God exists and controls our universe, even though I don't believe a word of it myself and I believe that we exist in an indifferent universe.

      My goal is to advance human understanding and if I have to do that in incremental steps without making a huge leap to what I personally believe to be the truth, then that's how I am prepared to play this game.

      My goal is NOT to get people to think like I do or to believe the things that I believe to be true. I am merely seeking to get Christadelphians to make an effort to lift their game and stop being so incredibly stupid.

    3. Ebengo: You have not yet answered my question: How much cash and other benefits do you receive from the CBM for your loyalty to their religion?

      And a second question: Do you receive money from individual Christadelphians in the UK or elsewhere, independently of the CBM?
