    I have read the analysis on Christianity in Africa and I must say that it is true about the statistics. I would like to say that there needs to be a differentiation between Africans who are Christians by religion and those who have salvation by being born again. I am a Kenyan citizen and an African at that and I must say that there is a clear difference between the two categories of Christians.

    Winnie, I think that is true about Christians in just about every cultural context–except where the costs of being a Christian are much higher.

    Lauren, if you follow the link to the Pew study itself (from my previous post), they should give you the exact breakdown of the sample. I’ve had questions about how representative it is in terms of full representation, but it does ring true to many of the things I’ve seen. (PS: I haven’t forgotten about your previous comments, they just seem like something that should be discussed leisurely over drinks. If I had a bit more concentrated time, I might attempt to start more of a conversation on-line, but…)
