Children in the old village posing for a picture. Most of the people in this region will remain under the strong influence of animism even if they convert to Islam (85%), Christianity (1%), or other faiths. When things go bad in their life they will revert to the superstitions of the fetishers.

From Pastor Steve's trip to Mali Africa:

A fetish hut (sometimes called a “snake-house”) is used in various rituals both positive (to bless/heal) and negative (to curse/harm) by fetishers (shamans). This hut is in southern Mali.

The Atheist Delusion

Ray Comfort and his crew at Living Waters have done it again. They've made another movie, this one aimed at dispelling the human rationalism of atheism. In our natural state we don't want to think that there really is a God, and that we will have to answer to Him at the end of our lives. In this movie Ray fleshes this out and shows us how to help someone of an atheistic point of view to begin to really think about what they believe. And in a loving way.
