Faith in Africa

A response to: Religious Trends in Sub-Saharan Africa

Share this Entry

It is true that the Christian faith is very strong in Sub-Saharan Africa. Africans are strongly religious and this is vivid in their mudus vivendi. Everything in Africa starts with a prayer and this shapes people’s lives and their behavior.

However, the Western culture is entering the African society with great force and if there are no precautions taken the society might lose much of its spiritual heritage, norms, and traditions. There is a lot to learn from Africa but some are being lost at the expense of Western culture. […]

The Africans should be very clever to sort out what is acceptable and what is not.
