Probably worshipped natural things... Like made gods from animals... Made dances and rituals based on birds and animals mating rituals thanking the land for a succesful hunt and a productive harvest... Off the top of my head... Not sure tho.. İ magine very superstitious.

Are you just unsure curtis, or unwilling to do your own research?

Maybe you should be educating me my friend... Slavery thrived because of money... Unfortunately... Black..or white.. We are greedy fucks, and clearly willing to sell ourselves out for a quick buck... İts sad, but true.

the Novum Testamentum Graece and Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus reads 616. Papyrus 115 reads 666, so....

I'm ashamed by these answers. Libraries, old people, Internet and curiosity still exist?

The question assumes that all black slaves were of the same culture which is not true. People from different cultures have different practices and don’t all pray to the same god. Some don’t pray to any god. So, in order to answer your question, I first have to ask which of the black slaves are you questioning because they were not all the same.

true they came from all areas if correct or west if i listened to anything you ever said

Curtis Ferguson Right. There is ZERO evidence to support any assertion that all black slaves or people are the same or are of the same culture.

Andrew Cantrell That's a person and no zulu slaves were sent to America in large numbers.

Wow. I'm out. The people in this group are stuck on logical fallacies. That's like trying to play poker with 30 cards instead of 52.

Depends.
There were Christians in the Africa for a long time.

Ethiopia converted officially to Christianity under King Ezana's reign, somewhere between AD 320 - 360. There was a discussion with an Ethiopian in ... Acts, is it?

There were Christians in Egypt since the Great Commission; according to tradition, too, one of the disciples went there.

Much of what is today the Maghreb, too. Christianity grew there. There were even some Christian popes from North Africa.

Besides that, local, traditional religions. Things like traditional Bantu, Igbo, Hausa, Dogon, etc beliefs. Things from monotheism to polytheism to panentheism and pantheism.

Every tribe had it's own god, for ex Rwanda we had Ryangombe, he was a dead man who they thought to be powerful and brought food for him to impress him and fight ghosts for them which they though were dead people who had problems with them and though they would come back and do harm to them so Ryangombe was their protector. Rwandans believed that soul continued living through ghosts after death!

Africa is one hella large place with more than just a handful of differing peoples. Bloody hilarious question in that regard. But all indigneous peoples worldwide had their own mix of animism, pantheism, hero and ancestor worship.
