God's Favorite Ancestral Sayings

God's Favorite Ancestral Sayings

God I know my ancestors are with me

God's favorite ancestral sayings speak of those who have been near to God but have allowed greed and hate to take them away from a happy life. God's favorite ancestral sayings teach of the slumbering possibilities of sin, man is free, man is responsible. Just as it is on every continent, there is passion and tension about religious life in Africa. There is no academic agreement over what exactly is religion and there are just as many debates being religious vs spiritual. Many cultures believe that there is only one God who exists, one God which is the master of the universe.

Can’t Be Hot and Cold


A journeys discovery no one can serve two masters. Christianity first arrived in Northern Africa around the 1st century AD and these Christian communities were among the earliest in the world. Who introduced Christianity into Africa is an ambiguous story at best however; it is commonly believed Christianity was brought from Jerusalem to Alexandria on the Egyptian coast by Mark, one of the four evangelists, in 60 AD.

God quotes

A good swimmer is not safe against drowning.

A young angel, an old devil.

The disobedient fowl obeys in a pot of soup.

The devil often lurks behind the cross.

An axe does not cut down a tree by itself.

God quotes

Two crows on the same ear of corn are not long friends.

Don't offer one candle to God and another to the devil.

Do not let what you cannot do turn your head away from what you can do.

An enemy does not sleep.

The eagle does not hunt flies.
