Should Humanity Avenge Divinity? Discuss Using Onyishi's Clash of Divinity and Chinua Achebe's Dead Men's Path.

By Cynthia Mbagwu

Summary

Humanity should therefore maintain their stand in their relationship with the divinities as propagators of their worship, dependent followers and observers of the instructions of their gods, thereby mediating into their affairs only when instructed to do so. Deviation from this only place humanity in a position where they might receive blows not meant for them as rightly stated by Ulu in Achebe’s Arrow of God.

Abstract

 

African belief system is centered on religion and this prevails even after the coming of the white man, although many of the natives converted to Christianity – the white man’s religion. Belief in a Supreme Being, retribution of justice and life after death has been observed to be essential parts of many religions and In African traditional religion, the belief of the Supreme Being is clearly spelt out, with the acknowledgement of spirit and divinities set forth as messengers of the one Supreme Being. It is also believed that these divinities are not created but came into being in the nature of things with regard to the ordering of the universe. This also corresponds to the Christian theology of the divinity of Christ, as they believe that Christ was not created but came forth from the father. (Idowu, 1973.)
