Description

The purpose of this study is to educate fellow Christians all over the world about the positive and
negative impacts globalisation has on Christianity and our Christian lives. It is also to enlighten
us that globalisation is not evil, and it is not a human idea but God’s idea to fulfil His purpose of
saving the estranged world—the lost souls. This is principally so when He said at the beginning
of creation that man should be fruitful, multiplied, and replenished the earth. This was validated
by our Lord Jesus Christ when He commanded His disciples to globalise the good news for the
entire world. The cerebral missionary giant, Paul, the Apostle, cashed in on Jesus’ command by
globalising Christianity through his missionary journeys in major cities of the ancient world
before the invention of technology. This is globalisation in its embryonic stage. This paper
employed secondary sources of data collection. It used a comparative method but was descriptive
and analytical in nature. It also adopted the cause-effects theory, which discusses the impact of
social systems as a result of their causes, and the selective acceptance theory to cushion the
negative effects of globalisation on Christianity or completely eradicate them. The study
redefines globalisation and traces its etymology to God to set the record straight. It also attempts
an analysis of the interplay between Christianity and globalisation. The paper makes some
recommendations and concludes that globalisation is God’s fulfilment of the great promise to
save the entire human race.
