Abstract

Many Christian fundamentalists think it is outrageous and even blasphemous to compare African traditional religion with Christianity, believing that there is no parallel between the two religions in terms of values. According to Joseph Raz, “Value is the great uniter and the common bond of mankind.” This paper argues that, African traditional religion is pregnant with rich ethical values that stand in accord with Christianity and other religions. It further affirms that morality is another area where there is significant relationship between Christianity and African culture; this is probably due to the fact that morality flows naturally from religious creed.
