Every year, the Reformed Baptist pastors in Zambia try to meet, away from everyone else, to deal with issues that need to be handled in a context where the basics of Reformed theology are not in question. Whereas we meet during other forums, we find that “outsiders” tend to raise questions at a level that we passed aeons ago. Hence, this is a meeting you only attend by invitation. This year, for the first time, I missed it because I was double-booked. I really regretted it. The Parson’s Diet (as it is popularly known) took place in March this year and the challenge was to redeem our culture. It was meant to help us deal with the syncretism that was invading popular Christianity. Pastor Kabwe Kabwe of Grace Reformed Baptist Church spoke on the African worldview and thus gave a backdrop to all the other subjects that were to follow.
