African Traditional Religions presume a personal, high god that created the world and left it to run in place. Animistic tendencies appear layered in and through all of the world’s major religions, even Christianity in some traditions. The universality of such spiritual impulse points us to the self-revealing one true God of the Bible. In a time when pluralism and ideological chaos swirls, it is encouraging to recognize the truths all around us and to have an anchor in the storm. Search for meaning and purpose builds off of a centered life settled in God’s will, not our designer religions.
