Why is Africa Underdeveloped as against Gen 1:28

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28

The above Bible verse is being practiced or fulfilled by Majority of the people that have white skin and very few people among black people. God created us and equips us to work, the work of the ''creation mandate'' was passed to us for our own good.

Everything is grounded on God’s creation of people in his own image, from Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1. All creation displays God’s design, power, and goodness, but only human beings are said to be made in God’s image. A full theology of the image of God is beyond our scope here, so let us simply note that something about us is uniquely like him.

But the chief thing we know about God, so far in the narrative, is that God is a creator who works in the material world, who works in relationship, and whose work observes limits. We have the ability to do the same.

Chapter 2 of Genesis discuss about dominion, provision, fruitfulness/growth, limits, and relationships, and we must continue in this regards in creating what will make life easier for us in line with God mandate.

But now a days, especially in Africa, we are bringing many to our churches and having programs upon programs everyday while other countries are teaching their children to be creators (problem solvers).

We teach our children to pray for everything including jobs, smart phones and cars, while they (civilized countries) teach theirs to create jobs, invent smart phones and cars. 

Then our children become adults who go and work under those who obey God and created jobs, our children struggle to get small money to buy smart phones that we disobeyed God in creating, our children go to church to celebrate the Pastor for smart phones and cars purchased from other countries whose children have become adults who invent cars and smart phones with their God given talents. 

While here in Africa we sleep in the church waiting for miracle from God that have already equips everyone of us with talents as told in the Scripture, Matthew 25: 14-30.

This are the same people that brought Islam and Christianity to us but they are not behaving or disobeying God the way we do. They go to church but dont waste time in the church as it is common in Africa, they pray and have faith that God has answered their prayer but we here in Africa, after praying we are still waiting for miracle instead of us to act on whatever prayer we have as we read from James 2:14-26.

We end up consuming the smart cars and iphone 14 pro max they invent with their God given talents and we gathered, give testimony, and are happy with not fulfilling God's Word. We go beyond that, we started praising, boasting that it was pastor's prayers and anointing that gave us those devices and cars.

We are teaching our kids that "A" is for "Apple" and they are teaching their kids how to turn apples into other products and how to impregnate apples to give birth to beautiful bubbles.

They are teaching their kids coding and programming in well equipped schools while we are teaching our kids how to prophecy and speak in tongues in well equipped churches. While there's nothing wrong with raising a child in a church, (many great achievers are being raise in the church), it is wrong if our children remain within the safety of the walls of religion. That's a limitation on the mind of the African child.

Our children's school drama is about how to be a pastor or imam while theirs is about how to relocate to a new planet. They boast about conquering Mars, while we boast about seeing dreams and hearing prophecies.

We choose our leaders based on tribe and religion while they choose theirs based on the solutions these leaders bring to the table. I want our churches to continue in creating things that will empower their members finacially, spiritually, mentally, physically and so on. Why is it that we have many people poor in the church?

We are poor yet look rich but they are rich yet look poor. We may be doom on the last day if we don't change our mindset. Matthew 7:23.

Please share this post until every African child read it and change their mindset. Enough is enough, Madness means thinking the same way you used to think ten years ago but expecting a different result. If you want real changes, then practice what is written in the Scripture against what you used to know and embrace new knowledge for new results.

It's time to teach the African child how to become a god - creator of solutions.

Our message is the kingdom of GOD. Our mission is to prepare you for it.
