A. Edwin Wilson
Founder of the Word of the Kingdom
"What God has separated, let not man integrate!"
1. From Arlen L. Chitwood -- "[Wilson's writings] covered a broad range of Biblical subjects and came from the pen of an individual who, through many years of prayer, study, and meditation upon the Scriptures, was pre-eminently qualified to write on these subjects." -- from the introduction to Selected Writings of A. Edwin Wilson, published in 1981, which Chitwood edited (RaptureReady.com offers the same words)
2. From Pastor John White -- "He taught things from the Word of God that I had never heard before, and therefore was challenged to check him out. I found out that what he taught about the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heavens could not be refuted without twisting the meaning of words and being inconsistent in interpretations." (White managed Wilson's tape ministry)
3. From Calvary Bible Church in Tennessee -- "Rev. Wilson's ministry was centered around proclaiming 'What the Bible says,' and that 'the Bible means what it says.' His study of the Scripture revolved around 'words, and their meaning.'" (Wilson's sermons can be found at the CBC website.)
4. From Pastor Daniel Shannon -- "The late Rev A. Edwin Wilson is one of the great Bible teachers of our times."
5. From Pastor J. Edward Quick -- "I am ever grateful for [his] love, patience, and kindness. [His] teachings have touched my heart and opened my understanding to 'the word of the kingdom.'"
Teachings of A. Edwin Wilson:
1. On who are to be the world's servants -- "[God] took the sons of Ham, of whom are the servile nations, and he scattered them across the southern part of the earth, from the equator on.” — sermon, 1977
2. On Ham violating his father becasue he was black -- "Commentators both among the Jewish rabbis and the evangelical students of the Word of God are divided in their speculation, and I use speculation advisedly because we don’t know exactly. There is one or two things we do know: Noah had no more children. So that there is one camp of interpreters who have come to the conclusion that Ham, the black one of the family, because of an intense hatred, because of his black condition, emasculated his father so that there would be no more blacks born like him. There are others who believe the sin perpetrated upon the person of Noah was the sin which made Sodom and Gomorra so infamous in the sight of the Lord.
"But one thing cannot but impress you: Verse 24 — Noah awoke from his wine, and knew, as soon as he sobered up, he knew, more than likely from physical pain, he knew what his younger son had done to him. Why the younger son? His younger son was black. His younger son possessed characteristics rendering him capable of deeds and acts of which the other two were incapable." — sermon, 1973
3. On why blacks shouldn't be mayors of towns or cities -- “The spirit of the Lord says there are three things that tear up the relationships in the world today, and for four which it cannot bear. Number one, for a servant when he reigneth. That’s all I’m going to read tonight. One thing the earth cannot stand, one thing that disquiets the whole order of things is to take a servant or slave and put him in a position of power and authority. And if you want a commentary on that just make a study of the cities of the United States that have had servants for mayors. That’s all you have to do. That’s the word of God. That’s the word of God.” — sermon, 1977
4. On how it is biblical for blacks and whites to be seperated on Sunday mornings -- “Generally speaking, around the world, what’s the hour and the day that manifests the strongest evidential segregation? It’s on Sunday, and what time? Eleven o’clock. That’s particularly true in what area of the world? … Bible Belt? What is the capitol of the Bible Belt? … Chattanooga is the capitol of the Bible Belt, you know it is. What other city in the world has Bible taughting (sic.) schools like this city? No place but the Bible Belt that have it. Now why is the eleven o’clock hour in Chattanooga the most segregated time and place in the world? There is a reason for it. Because in a majority of the pulpits you’ll still find the word of God.” — sermon, 1973
5. On blacks being cursed -- "In the curse (Gen. 9:24-27) pronounced by God through Noah (called by God 'a preacher of righteousness,' II Pet. 2:5), the descendants of Ham became the servile nations of the world. God pronounced the blessing upon Shem, that he was to be the channel of spiritual blessings to the world, and a blessing upon Japheth, that from him were to come the explorers, colonizers, and developers — those who would possess the whole of the earth. There is no equality on the earth among men, there will be no equality among them during the millennium, neither will there be equality among them during eternity." -- from "Sons of Noah," published in the 1950s; re-published under the editorship of Arlen L. Chitwood in 1981
6. On integration being satanic -- "This general move toward blotting out all national characteristics and fusing all races into one people is Satanic in its origin and has no foundation or basis in the Word of God. Today, not only in this realm but in all realms of personal experience, we are faced with this question: Will we accept the Bible as the Word of God and be conformed to it?" -- from "Sons of Noah," published in the 1950s; re-published under the editorship of Arlen L. Chitwood in 1981
7. On why blacks should have no rights -- "“[The Hamitic] curse also involved general inferiority of the Hamitic race, and a special condemnation to the lowest degree of servitude. This curse consigns the Hamitic race to a position of national and personal servitude until the time of restitution of all things (Zech. 14:21)." -- from "Sons of Noah," published in the 1950s; re-published under the editorship of Arlen L. Chitwood in 1981
8. On equality -- "Are all people born equal? According to the Word of God they are not." -- from "Sons of Noah," published in the 1950s; re-published under the editorship of Arlen L. Chitwood in 1981
