Also we were thought that traditionalist worship the Supreme God not through Jesus Christ but the lesser gods . I have a problem with that !
The bible is clear that Jesus is the way ,the truth and the light …not the lesser gods .
Again some Christians have some kind of commitments with fetish priests and When confronted about their acts they will justify it saying ‘Jesus was introduced to us by the white man ,but the traditional religion is part of our culture’. So I ask the begging question ,Do we pass the worship of lesser gods simply as “African traditional religion” or Idolism ? I believe the later perfectly fits the description .
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
The walls of Our streets have been inundated with posters of Fetish priests and priestesses claiming to provide people with all kinds of spiritual protection and money . Their afiches have careful enumeration of the services they provide which can be catchy atimes although it looks jocose to someone like me who don’t believe in such powers .
It has come to my notice in recent times the influx of traditional fetish priests bodly flaring up in the country thanks to the hunger for wealth and power . I don’t blame them so much since they claim other pastors even come to them for powers to perform miracles .No wonder they now have to guts to challenge other men of God to show they are more powerful .Although In the past ,it was extremely difficult to catch a glimpse of a fetish priest or hear of one , it is different now .To prove this , take a stroll to the streets of Accra ,37,Legon ,Madina intermittently fixating your eyes on the walls and you will see for yourself .They are everywhere .
It Is as if this traditionalist got inspiration from one man who calls himself the Kwaku Bonsam . For me this man was actually the only traditionalist I have seen so far with a website and a YouTube channel . He was also the first traditionalist who went viral and public and Other traditionalist have taken after him . But just so you know ,traditional religion involves the worship of demons .The bible is clear that Yaweh is the only true God ,and besides him there is no other god .Yet the so called traditional religion claims they worship God through these lesser gods . Again there is nothing like lesser gods since God is the only God . So that makes those beings the fetish priests worship demons and not gods.
