“ Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be to stand against the work of Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
( Ephesians 6:10-11, KJV)
The above quoted scripture from the Bible has send a lot of Africans to becomes prisoners of the mind.
In fact, the average African think any calamity that happen has some terrestrial powers. They have the mindset that aged people are some wizards and witches. Many has neglected where they could find solutions, they look for it in Church, unfortunately the solution is far from Church.
When the Speaker of the quoted verse was talking no particular continent was mentioned.
Many Africans always quote the above verse when the system has failed? Majority of us are victims of ignorance and the environment that brought us up. We always think, someone should be responsible for our misfortune, and also thanks to religious leaders who succeeded in brainwashing us.
The principalities and powers over there are everywhere, so why does Africans think they are the one Mr Paul is talking about? Why is Paul not talking to Europe, Antarctica, America, Australia, Asia and other every successful continents.
Why is Africa states own different? It is because a good system of Governance is working well over there, not here.
God won’t fix the roads or reduce our car speed, so there is no need in praying to God for a better journey.
Why is their economic very good? It is simply because of a good System. Why is development common? It is because of a good Governance.
Until we channels our voice against bad governance and, we will always be one of the least developed continents out there.
