A few weeks back, I attended a pastors’ conference in South Africa where one of the speakers described Africa’s Christianity with the words “vital” and “explosion.” May I present just one of many examples of Africa’s vital explosion?
Notice the copy on the packaging: “For the salvation of your soul.” But salvation is such a weak word these days in prosperity circles. Can’t we ratchet up the marketing power with some real godtalk? So, the enhanced packaging reads, “THE BLOOD OF JESUS.”
Joshua peddles his water like a modern African witchdoctor looking for a quick buck. This is the “Christianity” that is taking over sub-Saharan Africa. Blasphemy is not too strong a word. But “vital” most certainly is.
