After Eden (Week 6): “Noah’s Shame, Canaan’s Curse”

Chris McBride, Worship Pastor – Genesis 9:18-29

This week, Redemption Bible Church is led by our Worship Pastor, Chris McBride. This continues the examination of the book of Genesis, part of the sermon series entitled “After Eden,” which reveals what happened in the Bible after the fallen world came into being. Chris tells the story of Noah’s struggles after the landing of the ark. Noah gets involved with wine and loses control. His two oldest sons show him respect, even though what Noah did was not respectful to them. Noah’s youngest son, Ham, does not show respect and Noah says he will curse Ham’s son, Canaan. We are not that different from Noah at times. Love can overcome our sins, while our hatred stirs only strife. We can learn from both righteous and unrighteous behavior.
