Christianity and the Veneration of Ancestors – Should a Christian consult the dead?
Like all cultures, African cultures are beautiful when they are untainted by the selfishness of fallen humanity. Some aspects of African Cultures, however, need to be redeemed, to be submitted to the loving authority of God, the creator and redeemer of humankind… the test of whether a culture is fulfilling God’s purpose and reflecting God’s beauty is whether it matches up with God’s word – the bible. I commend this book as a light to our path and guide to our minds as we seek to understand the truth about ancestor worship, sacrifices and the role of elders in African cultures.
