Out of African spirituality came the world religion. Religion is a set of rules and rituals created by foreign invaders of Africa, and because man is not perfect the religion is corrupt and divisive a tool for human power struggle.
Spirituality is not theology or ideology but a way of life linking us to the God within and each other. We Africans are allowing a minority people fool us with their images of religion ( white god, white angels and hell fire ) images of politics ( so called democracy ) and media (retelling our stories in their movies), thus controlling us mentally.
Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by MANKIND , which were supposed to help people grow spiritually.
Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political divisive and a tool for power struggle.

Religion is a money making organisation that sells promises to the people about the after life, a bit like Politicians who sells promises about the hear and now.
The top 5 churches in Nigeria together earn more money than the total economy of Nigeria. Yet in real terms what has the churches done to help the people of Nigeria.
They don’t build Hospitals that can help the sick. They don’t build homes to take the people out of the slums they live in. They don’t build schools to educate the people. Just sell them promises of a good life when they die, i think we the people need to rethink our priorities.
Religion has been a major player in some historical conflicts over the centuries and the most recent wave of modern terrorism, Preaching a philosophy of love but exhibiting actions of war mongers.
Divided along Orthodox, Catholic and Muslim ideology.
Religious identity not only survives but can take on heightened significance when national and political alliances break apart,
RELIGION is one’s opinion and belief in some ethical truth. To be a Christian is to have the religion of Christ, and so to be a believer of Mohammed is to be a Mohammedan but there are so many religions that everyman seems to be a religion unto himself.
No two persons think alike, even if they outwardly profess the same faith, so we have as many religions in Christianity as we have believers
