Indigenous African Demonic Deliverance and its Transference into Pentecostalism with Subsequent Refining: Ghana and its Diaspora as a Case Study

Author
Duane Sterling Sims M.A.
Abstract

This paper examines how the traditional Ghanaian worldview has been contextualized by grass-roots Christians in Ghana, and further by Ghanaian Pentecostals, and how this has been exported, adapted, and refined from Ghana across national and continental lines to its diaspora. I hope to address some key questions regarding Ghanaian deliverance practices (at home and abroad) and integrate my findings into ministry, whether to Africans or anyone. Some of these questions include: “What drives Ghanaians to seek deliverance? How have they, historically, sought to deal with the spirit realm? How do they currently seek to deal with it? What are some of the differences between a traditional Ghanaian understanding and that of a Ghanaian Pentecostal view?”

The Obama era and the Joshua generation of preachers: choose this day what ye will preach: prosperity or prophetic preaching -- a choice for X and Y generation preachers

Author
Vanetta R Rather
Abstract
This project was developed to help X and Y generation preachers claim/reclaim the prophetic preaching voice of God. The author believes that these generations have been lured away from prophetic ministry and enticed by negative cultural influences. The cultural influence that is having significant impact is the American culture of consumerism which has appeared in the church as prosperity preaching. The author interviewed and surveyed the X and Y generations, researched biblical prophets and examined cultural influences. The findings conclude that there has been a cultural impact and that there is a need to claim/reclaim the prophetic preaching voice of God.

Land tenure and the prophets: a case study of El Salvador

Author
James Stuart Rettig
Abstract
The prophetic message of the Old Testament about land tenure in ancient Israel and Judah can clarify for the church the issue of land tenure in El Salvador today and can deepen the church's understanding of the conflict there and help it in its mission strategies. Through a review of available literature, the author sought answers to the questions, Why does land concentrate in the hands of a few people, and, What do God's prophets say about this concentration? the general conclusion is that the church often neglects the resources of the scriptures when dealing with controversial issues.
