Following an earlier post on Nairaland earlier by Albhadadi.I beg to disagree with the post and apologists of the post.The reason people of Africa have not developed to maximum is because religion has made us mentally lazy.We kneel to much and over pray inside of working.We can't attain perfection if we do not free ourselves from mental slavery.Too much religionsity leads to extremism and fanatism.Above all let us remember we are first of all human beings before what ever faith we believe in so lets us to tolerate to ourselves in our religious creed.below is an extract from an online library.

It's not just religion, it's black man with black mentality, religious leaders(Pentecostal pastoprenours)/politicians are only taking advantage of high poverty rate caused by this black mindset, thus they are backward,
After all there are religion developed countries.

"Religion The Excuse" of the average atheist or antireligious African in bid to drown out religion without putting on their glasses so they can see a clearer picture.I've been there and it's a rather largely ignorant view that pampers the intellectual laziness and the selfish mentality among other things that permeates Africa independent of religion.

You should help them out instead of cheering them.

List the benefit of religion to Africa as a whole. Give me ten example of how religion has benefited us here.

What is the contribution of religion to our national development?


With religion, esp the foreign ones, we have more social vices and instability than ever witnessed in African history. Is this what you call benefit?

The problem is sin, and sin is a product of religion. As such, religion is the problem.

FOLYKAZE, my guy, doing a knee jerk reflex and scattering everything in sight, as if like a bull let loose in a chin shop.

Sin "Hebraically" speaking means missing the mark, like, missing the mark, as in, missing the centre of shooting at a bullseye target. Now the $64,000 question to be asked is whose bullseye target is being missed here.

So Righteousness89, is right, that the problem of the world is sin and not religion, EmperorHarry, rightly noted how some are making and taking religion as an excuse. orisa37 and desiredhome are not fooled

PS: I'll find time sooner or later, to revisit that suicide convo we were having. OK?

What do you mean? Who is the person displaying ignorant here, it's only in Africa/Nigeria that religion have become source of income/profit making venture and instead of solving problems have increased the problem.

Everything have a law governing it, when you disobey/abuse the law you have the consequence, even the world we are living have it law, the law of nature(seed times and harvest time).
The Indian have their religion, Dubai has it's religion and so on.......
Christianity is a good practice but the black man due to greed and ignorant (Black man with slave mentality) have turned it to something else.

Mr/Ma'am, you are still blabbing instead of addressing the issue at hand. The question been thrown at y'all is simple and straight forward. Instead of answering, you resorted into balderdash.

Do I need to repeat myself? Ok let me ask you again in case you missed the initial question. HOW HAS RELIGION CONTRIBUTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA? WHAT IS THE CONTRIBUTION OF RELIGION TO HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT?

LIST TEN WAYS THROUGH WHICH RELIGION HAS BENEFITTED US AS HUMAN AND NATION.

While you submit your answers in your next response, I will like you to note that legal system has nothing to do with religiosity... The countries you listed have a strong legal system which existence is not founded on the basic of religion but culture and moral upstanding.

I do not need to recite the ten commandment before I could know that killing is bad. It is in the same bible where God instructed his followers to kill people. No be so? It is in the same religion we now have suicide bombers and maniacs who fly planes into buildings.

The problem of Africa today is deep rooted in religion. Unless we remove religion and focus on relevant issues, we ain't going nowhere

You are only retorting the junk they fed you with in your church. It is very important to note that many people across the world do not believe in your Christianity garbage, and they are fairing than you do.

For your info sir, China does not have the concept of God. In North Korea, there are more folks there who do not believe in God. In the world as a whole, there are significant number of people who do not belong to any religion or in God. Religions like Buddhism and Jainism do not have concept of God. So keep that nonsense to yourself.

The concept of sin is the product of religion. Without religion, there will be nothing like Sin. Since you agreed that sin is the problem, we can arguably assume that religion is the problem. I don't need to go back and forth to explain simple logic to you.

This is you jumping all around because a supposed Christian is among the team of astronauts in manned mission to the moon. And, that he smuggled holy communion and some bible verse note in his pack. I will like to ask, does this make the mission a religious one.

Could you tell us the religion Neil Armstrong belong to? And did he partook in sharing communion?

Can you show us Bible verse that contain instructions on how to build rocket, launch it and orderly fire it way on mars and back?

And lastly, how has your religion contributed to space science?

This is what you should tell us instead of throwing tantrum about how one of the Astronauts is a christian. Does Christianity teaches us how to build rockets and fly to the moon? Show us the bible verses or from Jesus teaching that explicitly detail how to fly to the moon.

Mr, the mission is a development of science, and all it success would be attributed to science, not religion.

You still can't show us the contributions of Christianity to the mission success

Japan came first in technological advancement before USA. In Japan, religion is mostly Buddhism which doesn't recognise God/god

Sayeth who? Who told you he is a christian? Na which church he dey go?

nelsonoba:

3) Vice President of United States of America: A Devout Christian who speaks in tongues

How has that benefitted humanity as a whole? And what contribution does that add to Africa? You retort America this, America that forgetting the topic is about Africa. How does America Vice-president been a christian of any benefit to Africa? Has Malaria, HIV and measles stopped battling little children and women since he became elected?

You keep rambling about America this and that while the topic is about Africa.

Need I tell you sir! According to International Momentary Fund, the largest economy by PPP GDP in 2019 is CHINA. US you keep shouting came second.

Note, in China, they are tearing down churches and mosques, and total annihilating religion, yet doing better than whole Africa that embraces religion.

How does this junk benefit Africa?

China has gone to the farthest part of the moon where no one has reached before. Again, how has this benefitted Africa?

nelsonoba:

9) Country with the highest number of A-rated Universities in the world: United States of America

They have the highest numbers of homosexuals. That is their problem, the topic is Africa not America.

nelsonoba:

10) Country with the highest number of Evangelical Christians in the Western world: United States of America; Christian population more than twice christian population in Nigeria

And they have highest gun violence than anywhere in the world. How has the number of Christians been of benefit to Africa?

nelsonoba:

11) Percentage of Americans who believe in God(even if not all christians): Over 70%

Belief in God isn't same as religious. Many believe in God and do not subscribe to any religion.

So far so good, you have not shown us how Religion has really helped Africa to prosper. That is the bone of contention here sir.

The only thing you have succeeded doing is exposing your shallowness. I seriously don't know where to start with engagement with you. Is it with the balderdash that America is a Christian state or that you significantly do not know that the subject of discussion here is Africa and the dent religion has done to it.

You were all over, rambling and winning like a chicken that lost its head, moving in no direction.

Well, first and first. USA is not a Christian nation. In fact, they are one of the nations of the world with the jurisprudential concept for the separation of church and state. Conceptually, this refers to making USA a secular state, and disestablishment of any relationship previously between the church and the state. As such, in theory, America is not a Christian nation like you claimed.

The most important issue, which should be discussed is the contributions of religion to Africa as a whole. I have expected you to furnish us with ten benefits of your religion to humanity, esp Africa. The continent is meant to be the light of the world. It becomes the shadow of itself after the adventure of foreign religions.

Do you want me to show you how your religion destroyed Africa? It does it with the teaching of the bible.

Every turn in Nigeria, there is terrorism and so many social vices. No thanks to Islam... And no thanks to Christianity too. Both religion fester on division, hatred, intolerance and dissociation from peace.

With Islam and Christianity, morality and upstanding is dead. If it is not Imam adopting and forcing 9yrs girl into marriage, it is Pastor and Bishop involving in Sex scandal. Act that is unafrican.


The continent is going south because Christianity and Islam discriminate against knowledge. We have more churches and mosques than schools and religion centres in every street. People now value religion more than education.

The churches and mosques refuse to open their financial book, a callous way of preventing exposure of their frauds. And malicious means of avoiding payment of tax to the state which could be channelled into development.

The advent of Islam and Christianity have made many forget their history, heritage and cultural background. That is why a pathetic fella like nelsonoba can speak more about America, Jesus and Israel, way more than his own history. He is lost and lack directions.

Most religion countries have witnessed more violence, killings and public unrest. With very little of this experienced in lesser religiously populated nation.

The GDP of countries generally correlates negatively with their religiosity, i.e. the wealthier a population is the more secular it is. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/41573799_Religion_and_Economic_Growth_Across_Countries

Gallup surveys, for example, have found that the world's poorest countries are consistently the most religious, perhaps because religion plays a more functional role (helping people cope) in poorer nations. https://news.gallup.com/poll/142727/religiosity-highest-world-poorest-nations.aspx

Another statistics reveal that those who are religious tend to have less intelligence and analytical skills when compared to non religious folks.

The dreadful evil from Islam and Christianity is the enslavement of black people. Afterall, their scripture support it. It was in the past black folks are been captured and sold into slavery, now you folks are perpetual mental slave of the Jew. You abolish your origin and worship their God. What can be worse than slavery?

These are ten problems religion infested on Africa, with the symptoms on other nations of the world. Can you disprove and deny these problems? Also tell us how religion, esp Christianity has contributed to human development. How has Christianity benefitted Africa positively.

Thanks

CodeTemplar:
You should have come out early to attack Christianity instead of first hiding behind religion.
The guy gave a robust response as against your own that's bereft of logic but filled with hate for Christianity. Have you seen any demonized soul attacking Islam before ? Always Christianity. Why? Christians aren't the most the most backwards or poor but you used them to represent religion out of hatred.

Save us all your rants and simply tell us how CHRISTIANITY HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA
