Chiism is simply religion made simple. It is a practice of the African people before the coming of revealed religions. It is just what the word implies: what Christ is to Christianity, Chineke is to Chiism. A relationship with Chineke is the focal point. Chineke may have different names in different tongues but in Igbo means God the creator. It could be asserted that if not all, then at least most religions, essentially, have a similar focus. For instance, in the case of Christianity, Christ is usually recognized as actually being God or more exactly a part thereof. As a result Christianity and Chiism are to the conventional Christian more or less interchangeable terms. Chineke however is not a part of but THE Creator of all things. It should nevertheless be observed that the “focal point” of any such religion has built around it a mass of supposedly fundamental concepts (as in Christianity, Christ’s teachings), which must be tunneled through in order to reach the relationships with Chineke.
What differentiates Chiism (Godianism) from all these others is that Chineke is just its focal point and nothing more. But Chiism is not only religion unto itself: it is the place where all other religions intersect.
