This most frequently paraphrased statement of the great German philosopher and economics Guru is true if you as me. Religion is a great motivator as people believe in a higher power that suppernaturally comes and makes all things right. People even die for this course. What Africa hasn’t realized is that, Religion is a great tool to aid development, when channelled right which the western world perfectly used. The UK and the USA were all built with the drive of Cristianity. Africa on the other hand, as always are using this powerful tool of religion’s opiumness to enrich our selfish interests. And clearly, it is working. The irony of all of this is that, true Christianity is not a Religion. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Sungdong Cletus Central Region, Ghana 7 Questions 8 Answers 1 Best Answers 510 Points View Profile Sungdong Cletus West Africa Replied to answer on October 7, 2018 at 3:46 pm Do you think we as Africans should have used our traditional religion to develop ourselves rather than toe the line of Christianity which we don’t really understand and appreciate 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter wanjeri_thea 1 Questions 47 Answers 2 Best Answers 1,144 Points View Profile wanjeri_thea East Africa Added an answer on October 7, 2018 at 10:48 am Religion?
