Why Uganda Needs the Reformation

This year the evangelical community celebrates 500 years of the reformation, since Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg, protesting against doctrinal and moral corruption in Vatican. Although Luther never intended his invitation to the students to discuss the questions he had raised in his Theses to be divisive; this is what nonetheless happened, courtesy of the newly invented printing press in Germany.

Concerning Phaneroo (Part 4)

It is impossible for those who see themselves as gods and Christ not to have a human-centered view of life rather than a God-Centered one. For a man to see himself as a god, he must have such an inflated view of himself and a deflated view of God, a reversal of the reality of things, ‘for there is none like the God of Jeshurun.’ This man-centered view of reality is humanism; it is what is called anthropocentrism.

Concerning Phaneroo (Part 2)

The death of Christ for the redemption of humanity is the gospel that rejoices the hearts of the redeemed. This redemption is Trinitarian. The Father decrees before the foundation of the world to redeem a people for Himself through His Son, not based on any merit of their own, but purely on the substance of Christ His Son, who would die to effect the ransom for their redemption (Eph 1:3-14). This work is produced in the believer’s heart by the Spirit of God, through regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

In his presentation, later published in a blog that can be found here, Mbewe makes an excellent diagnosis of the evangelical movement in Africa, most especially the popular charismatic churches.
