Certainly a provocative title. And it is an eye-opening article by a self-styled “confirmed atheist.” It's interesting how the author is completely unable to deny the impact of Christ on the lives of Africans—but at the same time, due to the hardness of his heart, he refuses to accept it.
He neatly transitions from the obvious effect of faith in Christ to a muddled, abstract sociological discussion of the pragmatism of faith in the obviously unreal. The saddest part of the article is how the author acknowledges the benefit of faith for “those” people—yet blindly refuses it for "enlightened" people like himself.
So, who exactly is poor and backwards here?
