The most malignant disease facing the continent of Africa is not AIDS or malaria, but one called “the blindness of the heart.” A heart problem. To put it differently, this simply means our minds are in chains [i.e.,“futility of the mind,” “darkened understanding,” and “ignorance”; Ephesians 4:17, 18]. Mental slavery. If you want to know why there is widespread corruption, why a lack of transparency and accountability in government, why senseless tribalism and wars, why mediocre leadership, why the whining and victim mentality, why we’ve developed a culture of begging for everything, etc., my answer is: “Our minds are in chains.” —S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, p. 202.
