Description: Yet even in this area, there is some element of neocolonialism at the theological level given that scholars have established profound connections between America's Pentecostal demonological Faith Gospel, and the hate of Islam as major theological pillars, and the contemporary theology of African Pentecostals.42 Much about the theology of African Pentecostalism is not fundamentally addressing the continent's true existential challenges and realities. Yet Pentecostal minister Otabil has not publicly repudiated mainstream Pentecostal discourse, even though he has in practice developed an alternative theory and theology of entrepreneurship that takes into cognizance the critical role of structures of domination.43 Whatever one's opinion, we cannot fundamentally deal with the agenda of Africa's development in the 21st century without addressing the public role of religion in society, especially the rapid spread of Pentecostalism in the Global South.
