THE PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS IN AFRICA

by CONRAD MBEWE in Vol. 3 No. 1 / Apr 2017



Abstract
Protestant churches in Africa have come under scrutiny from political leaders due to the abuse that citizens in the churches suffer at the hands of their leaders. This is in part due to the loss of the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers taught in the Bible and rediscovered during the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century. We trace the discovery of this doctrine in the Reformation, its application to Africa, and its current absence, and we call church leaders to teach this truth afresh to God’s people.
