In an isolated corner of Ghana in Africa they have a strange idea of guilt and atonement. They believe that guilt involves the whole community. If there is no atonement by someone, the whole community will suffer from the vengeance of the gods. So often innocent people suffer as atonement for someone else's sins. Recently newspapers reported the case of a twelve year old girl who was born to a woman raped by a relative. This victim of incest and rape was herself committed to slavery for a lifetime. She must atone for another's crime. This pagan faith has ideas that are just the opposite of Christian faith. Christianity teaches that every one shall give account of himself to God. There is no collective punishment. Christianity does have the concept of an innocent person suffering for the sins of another, but the innocent person is the Son of God, Who voluntarily suffered for our sins once and for all. No one else needs to atone for our sins. "Jesus paid it all!"
