Human culture in the 21st century has been transformed by a revolution in sexual values. Promiscuity is regarded by many as a virtue to pursue, and young people who do not engage in premarital sex are perceived by their peers as imprudent and unexperienced. This has thus given birth to a culture of cohabitation, which is a growing trend in Nigeria and the world at large. This study investigates the debilitative nature of cohabitation with the view of accessing its missiological implications for Seventh-day Adventists in Nigeria. It further examines the factors contributing to cohabitation and explores some possible solutions to the challenge. Using the qualitative approach, the study shows that the increase of cohabitation in Nigeria may be due to reconfiguration of the family units as a result of increased urbanization and increased isolation of young people from their family networks. The study further reveals that on one hand, the young people hear parents and pastors proclaim the value of marriage, but on the other hand, they see a culture condoning cohabitation. As such, cohabitation portends danger not only for the marriage institution but also for Adventist mission in Nigeria. Therefore, this study calls all religious sects, especially the Seventh-day Adventist church, to rise to their responsibility of harnessing every effort to arrest this situation of cohabitation. Again, this study challenges the church to be intentional in engaging a more biblical and missiological approach in developing a clear biblical message regarding cohabitation. Furthermore, the church does not only need to identify cohabitation as a missionary frontier to be crossed, but also to devise practical strategies to help reduce, if not eliminate, such practice. This study closes by highlighting the missiological implications of cohabitation for Seventh-day Adventists in Nigeria.

Attempts at engaging the fallen world with the gospel of the Kingdom have exposed Christ-followers to the world's pull to ignore God. This becomes more challenging when the strategy is mostly centripetal―bringing the world into 'our church,' rather than centrifugal―taking the Church to the world. Churches make every effort to fix the gospel message into different religio-cultural and ideological orientations of “members.” The resulting ecclesiological discomfort is palpable in the acts of worship, politics, and day-to-day 'secular' lives of the people, where the impact of the church is expected to be felt. This study examines how the contemporary church may confront the identified discomforts resulting from how it engages its world. Using biblical and missiological principles as well as observable trends among churches in Nigeria, the writer posits that dwelling largely on centripetal mechanism of missions is creating ecclesiological malaise in Nigeria and that balancing with a disciple-making movement-based centrifugal mechanism is more suitable for effective missions in a multi-cultural, multi-religious and multi-ideological nation like Nigeria.

This article has examined the writings of the Ellen G. White Estate and the early commissioned Adventist historical textbooks. Such writings were narratives that were largely triumphalist in nature and served an apologetic purpose. All of them fulfilled the primary criteria of trying to explain Adventism and its core beliefs through history and scholarship. Through a careful reading, interpretation, and evaluation of important materials, it is clear that the main goal of the White Estate and the early historical textbooks was to connect Adventist faith to its historical memory. Such an approach to history is valuable as long as it does not jeopardize the honest interpretation of facts.

This paper is a theological reflection on the role of the electronic Keyboard as a musical instrument in the African congregation's Christian worship life towards missional goals and evangelism. According to Capuchin (2000:170), “Keyboard is a set of keys or levers which actuate the mechanism of musical instruments such as the organ, piano, harpsichord, and clavichord.” In this paper, the synthesizer, an electronic musical instrument, is referred to as the Keyboard. This instrument can be likened to a harp with strings (Ps.71:22) used during biblical times. Therefore, the term is used interchangeably with 'piano 'or 'organ. 'Hence, the paper seeks to examine various significant roles that the Keyboard plays in enhancing and enriching Christian worship in Africa.

5The Undesirable Promotion of a Servant to Kingship in Prov 30:21-23: A Missiological Perspective

Prov 30:21-23 seems to suggest that there is a fixed social order that cannot be broken. Correspondingly, several scholars have argued that because the sages were mainly conservative, they sought to preserve the universal order. Therefore, walking in wisdom would demand the respect of the same. On the contrary, this article aims to demonstrate that Prov 30:21-23 focuses more on the behavioral character of the individuals that assume new levels as shaped by their social backgrounds than the social order. This approach then brings to light the missional imports adaptable to our missional strategies. The study achieves this by examining the Torah for relevant insights that would give credence to the assertion of this proverb.

Through the balance of child welfare and missions, the biblical basis of missions is presented to realize God's love. The Bible views children as volitional human beings who participate in the heavenly kingdom, rather than as individuals with fragile personalities and impaired judgment. The Bible emphasizes the value and responsibility of child care for the family. Jesus exhorted society to protect orphans. For, to save others from suffering through suffering oneself in a social sense is to find oneself and to know God's love in the spiritual sense. The suffering of God's servants is God's mission strategy.

Worship is a reality in different religious contexts. It moves beyond the physical to the spiritual. Moreover, the scholars of religion have also tried to reconcile the one whom worship is directed to in various religions under the concept of “God” in religion. This paper followed harmonisations of the concept of God, which is termed to be the same for all religions by some and termed to different by others. So, it is necessary to use an evangelical Christian theological basis to evaluate the understanding of “God” in two major religions on the soil of Africa. This paper, therefore, introduces the topic, discusses the concept of God in African Traditional Religion, and explains the concept of God in Islam. Also, it critically and theologically evaluates the two worldviews through the lens of an African Christian theologian from an evangelical perspective. This study concludes that several characteristics such as love, Trinity and freewill concerning human beings differentiate God in Christianity from God in Islam and African Traditional Religion.
