How does African traditional religion differ from Christianity?
Both Christianity and African religions contain a notion of a Supreme Being, but Christians consider God to be triune. The Trinity is the name for this. It is composed of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit acting in unison. The Trinity is not acknowledged in traditional African religion in any way.
Do Africans believe in ancestors?
African religion is ancestor worship, which includes planning funerals, burying the dead with ceremony and pomp, believing that the souls of the dead still exist as ancestors, remembering ancestors on occasion, and believing that they have a say in the lives of their surviving descendants.
What religion were Africans before Christianity?
Before Islam, Christianity, and Judaism were introduced, polytheism was practiced widely over most of ancient Africa and other parts of the world.
The conclusion is that Christian faith and ancestor worship are incompatible. Although ancestor worship is a practice that most people identify with prehistoric civilizations, it is nevertheless widespread today in many nations, including some that are thought of as having contemporary cultures and economy.
