A religious history of Africa

Postby Asmarino » Sun Oct 30, 2005 6:16 pm

Hey Guys,
As a guy from Africa, i was amazad to learn that there was indeed a religion, with a Messenger of God, which was sent to Africa. It must be thousands of years ago coz the rituals that are followed todate don't seem to reflect the religious ones we are familiar today, but they have a messenger".
To my amazement, some people still practice this religion in areas of Southern Nigeria and they try to explain their Messenger by comparing him to Jessus.
Any more explanation would be greatlly appreciated.

Hi Asmarino,

The Bab makes an interesting statement in the Seven Proofs as follows:

God hath raised up Prophets and revealed Books as numerous as the creatures of the world, and will continue to do so to everlasting.

We tend to concentrate on the prophets mentioned in the recorded scriptures and forget all about prophets for which there is no written scriptures.
