Happy New Year

Happy 2009As promised, I’m back! And as you can tell, we’ve entered 2009 with some changes.

The Africa Center for Apologetics Research now has a thoroughly updated web site. Not only does it have a fresh look, but you’ll also find some special new features. One exciting addition is the section on Cultic Groups in East Africa. You can now search through a growing list of cultic and controversial religious movements by both their names and by the countries where they’re active. Be sure to check it out!

As you can see, this blog has also undergone a major facelift, and we’ve given it a more descriptive title: African Apologetics. We hope that many more people will learn about ACFAR and join us in advancing biblical discernment in East Africa. Please feel free to link to this blog so that others can become aware of the many cross-cultural challenges to the gospel of Jesus Christ. (And for those of you who already have us listed in your blogroll, don’t forget to change our name in your link!)

Before I forget, I also want to let you know that my popular series on Christ Gospel Church (CGC) has been slightly edited and uploaded to Google’s Knol:What Does Christ Gospel Church Teach? Analyzing the Teaching of Bernice R. Hicks.” Those who are interested in the CGC can now easily read and refer others to this introduction to the basic beliefs of this international sect, which has its headquarters in my hometown.

These updates are just a taste of what’s to come. As the Divito family prepares to serve Christ in Uganda this year, a lot more will be happening.

Stay tuned for more—and keep praying for ACFAR!
