There is reoccurring motifs of vengeance and inhumanity of the gods to man and of man to man in human existence. The question of human versus human in quest for authority (power) is not isolated even in Christian organization. In Clash of Divinity, this issue is a reoccurring theme and the author uses it judiciously to the development of the plot. This instance is deduced from the text where Rev. Shedrack and Rev. Zeus go for a court trial over an election of who is to be the next General Superintendent (GS) of the church. Humanity may avenge for Divinity if the need arises instead of waiting for a god who is supernatural and whose revenge is not physically and immediately felt. This is because if vengeance is left for Divinity, humanity may have lots of problems because humans knowing full well that any sin committed against humanity will be left for the gods then they will be committing all kinds of atrocity. This is the case of pastor Dinma whose church activities have a clash with that of the ritual activities in the land, knowing full well that during this festival, women are not to come outside. But she complains of ‘…some people being either cold or hot.’ This single act leads the woman to be beaten by the men who avenge for their gods, the reason being that they have seen the nakedness of their gods which is considered a sacrilege.
