He said, “In Africa they do not have much knowledge of the Bible or theology. They get some things wrong.” I understand this. It is difficult for people to leave their old belief system behind and accept a new one without mixing them together. The Catholics had this problem with Hispanics and the “Day of the Dead”. This is the kind of problem they are having in Africa now. They are working to training the pastors who can then train the people. He continued, “But they pray a lot. When I am there preaching, I pray a lot. They live out what they believe because they pray a lot.” Then he talked of America’s knowledge of the Bible. Our pastors are well trained. We know the message of the Bible and our theology is pretty much on the mark. Then he gives me the real kicker, the punch line, the part that bites at the heart of the problem in the American churches and the hearts of many American Christians, “But in America, people do not pray so they do NOT live what they believe.” Ouch, need I say more. We need our prayer time. Have you seen the movie “War Room”?
