A recent report mentioned environmental concerns, including climate change, as the most likely threat to Earth in the 2020s. Therefore, there is a widespread perception that the problem of the environment today is not just a problem of any particular region or country, but also a problem of the future and the current problem that we live in today. Various concerns and studies on environmental issues have been conducted based on the Christian world view of creation, fall, and redemption within Christianity. These concerns began with the Catholic camp, but gradually efforts continue to link creation care with the gospel within Christianity, including the World Councils of Churches (WCC). Therefore, the study proposed as the following. First, a transition from environmental protection, or ecological conservation, to Life theology is needed. Second, a shift in the understanding of ecology looking at nature is needed. Third, at the Christian level, there should be a real recovery movement differentiated from secular environmentalism. Fourth, the church must wait for the second coming of Jesus and create a society that can realize a community with the real creation world.

The wealth and health theology of prosperity preachers has rapidly gained ground on the continent of Africa. These preachers claim that success in all aspects of life is the right of all Christians. Thus, with its main emphasis on material wealth and good health, the prosperity gospel has had a negative impact on discipleship. This article evaluates the claim of the prosperity theology in the light of the Great Commission and draws some implications for a biblically-faithful discipleship in Adventist mission.

This study discusses the difference that exists between Christian baptism and John's baptism. John began his baptism as a precursor of the institution of Christian baptism (John 1:25-26, 33). While some theologians consider John's baptism as inadequate because it was a baptism of repentance and not of the Holy Spirit, others posit that it was adequate since Apollos was never re-baptized by the Christian community (Acts 18:27, 28; 19:1). Thus, this paper sought to examine the two types of baptism in the New Testament and determine the differences and similarities between the two. From a review of baptism as understood in the Old Testament, and in Qumran and Rabbinic traditions, the paper further discussed baptism in the New Testament. It focused specifically on John's baptism and Christian baptism as practiced by Christ's disciples. This study concludes that there is a close relationship between John's baptism and Christian baptism. Though the two share several similarities, there are also some significant differences. Thus, while John's baptism locally prepared his people's minds towards Christ's first coming, Christian baptism universally ushers the believer into the Kingdom of God.

The membership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Africa is estimated to constitute the highest as compared to other regions of the world. This may have been enhanced by factors such as the high receptibility of its message on the continent. The amount of membership that the church holds in Africa has corresponding implication on the volume of records that its clergy and other record managers' process. However, there are concerns about the dependability of some of these records and how they impact the global church statistics and decisions. The reliability of church records could be influenced by the perceptions and certain challenges of the records creators and managers. Therefore, this paper, using an empirical research method, investigated the perceptions and challenges of church records management among pastors of the church on the continent. The return rate of the survey was 56.22 percent. The study found that the respondents have good perception of records and the role they play in organizational efficiency. Some challenges such as lack of disaster-preparedness, inadequate funding, lack of personnel training, unavailability and or/or inadequate organizational policies on records, and inadequacy of storage facilities were identified. Therefore, it was recommended that the organizations of the respondents should address these issues for effective and efficient records management.

Across denominations, in contemporary Nigeria, there is a growing trend for prayers in solitary places. Many Christians are withdrawing to consecrated places, which in most cases are in secluded areas of the country for various spiritual activities. Such places include mountains, watersides, bar beaches, and campgrounds. Most Christians in Nigeria are no longer spiritually satisfied or contented with their churches' prayers and spiritual activities. Both the clergy and laity now patronize solitary places for prayers and to engage in other spiritual activities. The idea of “withdrawal” or solitude in Christianity has attracted a level of scholarly attention from church historians. However, problems arising from “withdrawal,” especially among African Christianity, have not been adequately explored and documented. Likewise, what could probably be the prospects of “withdrawal” in Nigeria, and indeed in African Christianity if well utilized and harnessed, have not been adequately discussed by scholars. This paper intends to fill this lacuna. This study will proffer answers to the following questions: why do Christians in Nigeria go for spiritual exercises in secluded places? Are there problems or negative impacts of spiritual exercises in remote areas? Are there any spiritual and physical benefits to be gained in solitude? The methodology utilized is descriptive. Fieldwork was conducted by visiting some prayer mountains for personal observation and participation. Interviews were also conducted with mountain officials and attendees.

6Righteousness as a Precursor to National Greatness in Proverbs 14:34 and its Relevance for Nigerian Socio-Economic Development

A major theme in the Bible which also is the focal point of Proverbs 14:34, is righteousness. It is like a recurring decimal in the preaching of ministers in most church denominations in Nigeria. They especially do this when they emphasise its significance and the detriment of sin in determining the status or position of a nation which are reflected in its being exalted or reproached. Features that enhance the worth of a nation, righteousness or sin are portrayed in the biblical text for this paper and in other cognate texts. The socio-economic situation in Nigeria calls for urgent attention as people live in poverty and painfully below life expectation. Existing studies on Prov. 14:34 have focussed more on the spiritual interpretation of the text, mainly for devotional and liturgical purposes. They did not focus on critical exegetical consideration of how such features could be viable catalysts for socioeconomic development in the Nigerian context. This is the rationale for this work, and the contribution it will make to existing knowledge. The descriptive method of interpretation is adopted for this work. The study is premised on Giovanni E. Reyes' Modernisation Theory which he defines as a systematic process to move underdeveloped societies to an advanced and productive level of development. The Modernisation Theory stresses the importance of political development vis-à-vis the improvement of a nation's socio-economic condition; it also emphasises cultural reforms. Righteousness in this text, when read from and applied to the current national and socio-economic reality of Nigeria, hopefully, will stem the current lamentable socio-economic situation in the nation.

Adventism in Africa has become the centre of global Adventism in terms of its membership. The dreams of western missionaries and local pioneers have become greater realities far beyond their imaginations. But it is never a time for celebration, instead a moment of reflection over collective responsibility to confront the still bewildering setting of the denomination in Africa. This paper ex-amines issues at the heart of African Adventism. The denomination struggles with several issues that put its identity in crisis. The paper recommends a close reconsideration of fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as a way to address the distressing situation of African Adventism.

This paper is based upon the promotion of the indigenization of hymn usage and singing accompanied with local musical instruments. The paper focuses on the fact that this will make more impact in the life of indigenous African Christian worshipers. The use of hymns embedded in the African cultural heritage is the way forward. The imposition of western tune and culture on indigenous texts (lyrics) over the years has proved less effective. In short, this paper encourages the need for a strong promotion of the Africanizing of our worship hymns due to the uniqueness of our tonal inflections and African idioms. Also, the use of African instruments to accompany our hymn singing will add more life into the singing and thereby enrich their worship experience.
