lol yeah I know it was and added as practiced today in America to be more specific and since I am guessing that is what the ig post is referring to

and I meant in specific african countries but I had not researched which african countries

I know christianity is an extremely old religion

I also posted the slave trade map to show where the majority of american slaves where stolen from and I am now trying to see if christianity was practiced in those places prior to the 1500s and after.

however if you already knew this info you could have listed the religions, countries and what was practiced prior to 1500

or maybe even thought enough to post a link?

yes? no?

It just seems like a weird thing to post since it's so obviously coming from a place of ignorance...like I thought I was really missing something for a minute.

But I forgot, OP is a troll and takes every opportunity to deride black people in general and black women specifically so I shouldn't even be in this post in the first place.

oh okay

I remember a thread like this years ago and tbh then I had not really thought about it but it is an interesting discussion, even though the OP is a troll

clearly the ig post is ignorant but it did make me look up maps just now and such

I'm open to learning more about this topic

Christianity in West Africa

Evidence is unclear about the early advances of Christian faith in West Africa. The Tuareg are a people group known for decorative crosses in their artwork. Some point to the crosses as evidence of an early Christian presence in West Africa, while others argue that the crosses represent four directions of the compass. If any early Christian influence on the Tuareg existed, such influence is gone. The people have long since become adherents to Islam.

The Fulani mega-people group claims that they were the bearers of Islam from the East to West Africa. From Nigeria and Niger in the easternmost part of West Africa to Senegal and the Gambia along the western coastline, Islam became the dominant religion. Long before the Portuguese sent Catholic missionaries to evangelize and “civilize” the tribes, Muslims had built a presence and pride among the tribal peoples that was not easily forsaken. Threatened by death for apostasy – including conversion to Christian faith – few were willing to follow Christ.

African tribal religion is as influential as Islam. The wearing of charms, practicing of occult rituals, and fear of spirit powers are woven into the fabric of life. Most West Africans identify themselves as Muslim, though a majority of them practice folk Islam. Many are Muslim by day and animist by night. While they follow the basic teachings of Islam, animistic practices continue to bind the people in fear. Both animism and Islam threaten the expansion of the gospel in West Africa.

Portuguese explorers were the first Christians to bear witness to Christ, when in 1458 Diogo Gomez debated with a Muslim cleric about theology. After this discussion took place, a Mandingo tribal chief, Nomimansa, desired to convert to Christian faith and be baptized, but Gomez felt unqualified to perform the baptism. He requested a Catholic priest, and Prince Henry sent the Abbot of Soto de Cassa to teach the chief and other converts.

Portuguese missions were also established in the Gambia and elsewhere. In the Gold Coast (Ghana), 1471 marked the year in which Catholic missions began. The mission was brought about not only by Henry the Navigator’s evangelistic zeal, but also by the enterprising merchants who discovered that gold was readily accessible through bartering.

Other Europeans began to explore West Africa, introducing western culture, food, architecture, and language, all of which affected indigenous life. Just as the Fulani had introduced Islam, its worldview, and religious practices, so the Europeans introduced their “civilized” culture to the continent. West Africa was changing.

..it's that simple..I don't wanna see "whore" or anything like it in reference to african exploitation again, capische?







I understand that and have researched for over many years. Better yet selling it's precious commodity which is our knowledge of the maths and sciences which Aristotle himself wanted to steal himself. Kemet influenced Greece and Western thought and housing. We were the first teachers on this planet.
