    Healing and Coping with Life Within Challenges of Spiritual Insecurity: Juxtaposed Consideration of Christ’s Sinlessness and African Ancestors in Pastoral Guidance.Vhumani Magezi & Christopher Magezi - 2017 - Hts Theological Studies 73 (3):1-12.
    Spiritual insecurity among African Christians is a huge challenge. The insecurity among other things arises from African people’s former traditional African ancestral world view of ancestral veneration. The ancestors promote or hinder African Christians’ reliance on Christ because they have presupposedly acquired the supernatural power that enables them to provide diagnoses and solutions to life challenges.
