Both Christianity and Islam are religions of “Peace.” Throughout their history, they have been premised on the proclamation of peace and harmony within and between nations and communities. In practice, these two religions have been tattered by conflict, both within and between them. Resources and labor from the colonies were used for post-war reconstruction in Europe and North America. By contrast, African veteran survivors lost much more than they gained, both materially and politically. Generally, the ideological position of missionary societies was pro-empire since they were imperial instruments for “civilization” of the “natives.” The first generation of African converts to Christianity considered themselves first and foremost, the servants of Christ, in obedience to the Gospel. Africans who have accepted the Christian faith take the Bible very seriously, but find contradictions between what most missionaries have proclaimed and how they have lived amid their African converts.
