Abstract: a person believes in Jesus Christ, he or she becomes an adopted child of God and shares the same inheritance rights as Jesus, just as a Krobo father performs la pomi rite for a child hitherto outside his family making that child his own with full inheritance rights. This analogy for the Christian's adoption as a child of God gives a better understanding of the Pauline teaching to Krobo Christians. The value of this paper is that it explains Paul's imagery of salvation as adoption using a Krobo Religio-Cultural practice. It serves as a model for African theologians and biblical scholars. They may find certain practices in their own cultures and use them to explain the Christian faith wherever they find themselves.
