Africa did obtain enlightenment on Christianity relatively early after its conception ( Christ's death, if you wish to be technical). But this was due to the fact that ( Non - African) missionaries spread the word thru the corridors of the Roman Empire's conquered lands.
The first missionaries were, of course, Jewish. Soon after followed the Europeans. Christanity in Africa did not take off until the Western Europeans started a robust program to convert the pagan population of black Africa. And, that is the way it remains EVEN TO THIS DAY! That is why it astounds me when someone makes obvious , and probably malicious, statements as "reader" did below. Instead of recognizing, and THANKING, Western Europeans for caring enough to bring the Gospel to them, they try to hijack credit , and then issue devilish insults to boot!
I suggest that the person who posted the comments below ( "reader") please re-read your history books and learn the truth of Western Europe's gift of bringing the Gospel to sub-Saharan Africa. Then apologize for your malicious and ill-conceived statements below - it's the right (Christian!)
thing to do!
Thanks for reading, and God Bless!
