One of the ways the truth of Christianity is being attested is the veracity of the word as contained in the Bible. Even before Christianity began, our Lord and Savior told us in advance that his visible community on Earth won’t face a trouble-free life, and this He began telling us so from perhaps is very first lengthy sermon which was on the mount (Matthew 5 – 7) of which we can see the church has faced historically from the first century AD on the days the 12 apostles (the original 12 minus Judas, then add Paul) walked on Earth as testified both in the Acts and the epistles till today. Some of these have been external, and unfortunately the worst challenges Christ’s church has gone through are from within –internal. Below, we are going to see a few of the trials we can see currently being faced by the church in the context of Africa.
P.S. Over the next few months or so, we’re going to tackle over this question of prosperity gospel showing why it is no good news at all.
These are just some of the problems we’ll face as a church in Africa, and definitely there are tens of others. Maybe after you read this article you thought in your mind, is there hope for the church in Africa? For now, I can tell you definitely yes, and that the church in Africa has got tremendous reasons to celebrate, and this I’ll say in the next few days.
