It is estimated that about 100 million Africans currently practice one of the 60+ different traditional African religions. African religions are intertwined with African culture, proverbs, folktales, teachings, sayings, etc.
Although there is a diverse variety of African religions, many of them have several themes in common, such as:
Le us be at peace, let people’s souls be relaxed… Remove all evil from our path.
When the moon dies every month, let the sin in me die with it. When the moon is reborn each month, let the good in me be reborn with it.
Dear God, at dawn I thank you for the good night you gave me, and ask you to give me a good day. Dear God, at dusk I thank you for the good day you gave me, and ask you to give me a good night.
The sun shines and directs its hot ray to us; the moon rises in its glory. The rain will come again and the sun will shine again, and God’s vision moves over it. Nothing is hidden from him.
In the beginning was God; today is God; tomorrow will be God. Who can make God’s image? He has no body. He is like a word that comes from your mouth—that word; it is no more. It is past, and still lives—so is God.
God has no father or mother, and no wife or children—He is all alone. He is not a child, nor is He an old man—He is the same today as He was yesterday. He does not eat food, and he does not have messengers.
God is he who is of Himself.
[God is:] He-who-is-everywhere
[God is:] The marvel of all marvels
Character is religion.
If you say yes, your [personal] God will also say yes.
God knows the things of tomorrow.
God has nothing hidden from him.
If you pray to God for blessings at the same time you are sitting on a fireplace, he will give you ashes.
We do not see God, we only see His works.
God conceals himself from the mind of man, but reveals himself to his heart.
God will outlive eternity
