Illustrating the Shape of the Primal Worldview in Contemporary African Pentecostal–Charismatic Spirituality*

image of Journal of Pentecostal Theology

African Pentecostals and Charismatics have come far with their faith in Christ and the Gospel. But it is an acknowledged fact that their primal orientations continue to influence their theologies and emphases. And this reality continues to generate a conflict between their past and present. In Ghana, Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Mensa Anamua Otabil have become examples of how African Pentecostals and Charismatics continue to respond to their primal religious heritage. Thus this paper seeks to show how Ghanaian Pentecostals and Charismatics continue to demonise their primal religious traditions, and at the same time use it to serve their purposes. This also confirms the timeless continuity and discontinuity with their primal past. Hence the sermons of Duncan-Williams on ‘Generational Curses’ and that of Otabil on ‘the Four Horns’ have been used to illustrate the point.
