Just curious, does anybody know? Was the belief in the Supreme God central in the beliefs of our people? The reason why I am asking this question is a discussion that I read in "Things Fall Apart". One of the narrators in the novel was of the belief that the idols and gods that the people served in the land were 'representatives' of The Supreme God. While the foreigner disputed those beliefs. Not that I believe in idols or gods, mine point to the Supremacy of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but I do wonder sometimes, did our forefathers believe in the existence of the Supreme Being? If so, why was it not pronounced in our culture, but rather the worship and proliferation of idols were the order of the day during ancient times.
