Christianity and Socio-Economic Disorder  in Africa: An Igbo Perspective

Christianity and Socio-Economic Disorder in Africa: An Igbo Perspective

INTRODUCTION Christianity, like every other religion, carries with it certain cultural imperatives. The terms "religion and culture" are often used in a rather confusing manner. Some use the two terms as if they were two sides of the same coin: that is, in contexts that suggest that religion is one half of a whole and culture the other half. Others use the two terms in a way that suggests an opinion that one could be interchanged with for the other; in other words, that religion and culture mean one and the same thing. Admittedly, Religion and Culture are related in a special way which is not easily discernible without a close examination. But it is hardly the case that any of the above understandings of religion and culture is exactly correct. The two terms can neither be used interchangeably nor can they be regarded as two parts of a single thing, rather one - that is religion is part of the other - culture.

Summary of the Book of Acts of Apostle.

Summary of the Book of Acts of Apostle.

Uploaded by Prayer Ekpere

We do not know what source materials Luke used for writing Acts. Some things he observed himself, and quite possibly he may have kept a diary from which he extracted materials that were useful for his narrative. Presumably he had access to other manuscripts, and some of what he reported was obtained by direct conversation with others. Many things were omitted, and Luke was not completely unbiased in all that he wrote, but given these limitations, Luke produced a remarkable piece of work whose inclusion in the New Testament contributes a great deal toward a better understanding of the entire work. The early Christian sermons that Luke summarized and recorded form to a very great extent the basis for a reconstruction of the kerygma, and from this point of view, the gospel records were made. Luke's account of how Christianity made its way among Gentiles without discarding the more vital points of Judaism did much toward establishing unity. The account of Paul's arrest in the city of Jerusalem and the trials that followed clearly vindicate Paul in the eyes of any impartial reader. The end of the book is somewhat disappointing because one would expect to read about Paul's trial in Caesar's court, but the account ends rather abruptly. Some people think that Luke intended to write a third volume of his history but was unable to do so. Of this we cannot be certain. However, we are indebted to Luke in no small measure for the two accounts of Christianity that he did write.

Fifa World Cup Finals: Catalyst for Infrastructural Development? a Case Study of South Africa 2010

Fifa World Cup Finals: Catalyst for Infrastructural Development? a Case Study of South Africa 2010

This article explored how the dynamics of the global political economy influences international games, such as, the FIFA World Cup. It further examined the extent of exaggeration of myths and benefits of the 2010 FIFA World Cup to South Africans, neighboring states, FIFA officials and the global community in the post game period. To effectively explain and understand the article, we adopted the Theory of Commercial Liberalism and argued that whenever nations compete for the hosting right for such tournament, they are mainly but not exclusively driven by the benefits that accrue. The relevance of this theory as forming the theoretical framework is based on the simple understanding that man´s fundamental reasoning is cooperation in order to prosper.

Lexicological Models for Technical Discourse in French and Yoruba: A Comparative Study

Lexicological Models for Technical Discourse in French and Yoruba: A Comparative Study

Many African languages, though developed enough to cater to the everyday linguistic needs of their locutors, seem not to be very well suited for technical discourse, often not displaying the necessary objectivity and precision in their rendition of technical matters.
