“Why I Converted To Islam’ – Former Nollywood Actress Speaks Out



Nollywood actress Vivian Metchie, who has recently divorced, says she recently adopted the Islamic faith because she found the Christian faith too confusing.


Commenting on her choice to Yes! magazine, Ms Metchie said it was a personal decision she had to take.

“Yeah it is personal. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn’t take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn’t grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don’t know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran.”

Vivian, the mother of 4, who has adopted Fareedah as her muslim name, explains that her decision was well received and respected by her dad who has since stopped calling her by her native name and now calls her Fareedah.

    I truly feel sorry for you. It means you never really had a relationship with Jesus Christ. Soon your eyes will be opened to the reality that Jesus is Lord n that there is no other name in heaven or earth thru which you can have eternal except thru Jesus Christ. Hope it wont be too late.

      I have been there and I can tell u my story about christianity is that of a lost lamb. I give all thanks to Allah who guided me to the right path.

    I love Jesus, so I decided to worship his God without partner. I decided to not eat pork. I decided to grow my beard like he did. I decided to call out to my Lord and place my face on the ground in the most humble position in front of God that I could, like Jesus did.
    I worship with people who name their children: Jesus, Moses, Maryam and I chose a wife who worships God and loves Mary and wears the scarf Mary wore. I believe in the books God sent down including the Original Torah and the Original Gospel of Jesus and in the last book whose chapter 19 is “Mary”.

    I love Jesus peace be upon him and his mother. He is called Messiah and he is a “word from God”. I am Muslim which means I submit myself to the Almighty God as Jesus said: God is greater and I am less than the ONE who sent me…Follow Jesus and worship his God! This is his message and we follow him!

    From a follower of Christ when I was a Christian to being now a Muslim because Christ was a submitter to the Almighty One! And I realized Jesus did not speak English nor Greek but Aramaic….which is close to Arabic…Jesus said God is Greater….which in Arabic is:

    Ur action did not surprise me, it is d sign of endtime. The bible say bcos inquity shall abound the love of many shall wax cold. If d so called religion is confusing, is d scripture confusing, i will not judge u but i can say that u were not even born again bcos if u were, the holy spirit would have guided u, u are looking for cheap way to serve God. U own ur self and i will not be surprise if u change to traditional worship. God have mercy on u. Have been seeing this post for long and i didnt want to open it @ d first place bcos its irritating and boring. U will soon bear OGUNTADE

      Moses!!! which one u bring again na? which of the scripture do you recommend for her? The king James version,The new international version,ESV,NASV e.t.c
      Maybe you dont know that there are literally hundreds of different translations of the Bible into English?They all have different translations and different meanings depending on who is the narrator. Now tell me which of these hundred should she read?
      It was these confusion that prompted me to take a look at the translated Quran and I was freed!
      If only the bible was not doctored we would have had one in it original context.
      Please take time to read the Quran and u find an unaltered Bible in it.

    From your statement, it is evident that you were never a child of God, maybe a nominal Christian because if you were, you would not have been confused because you would have had a personal relationship with God, i seriously believe that your conviction is born out of the wound of your broken heart due to your marriage, so my dear sister if you say you found peace, so be it. no one will judge you, time will tell. But i want to tell you that for you to understand the word of God, you need a personal relationship with The Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the different denominations (Deeper life, Catholic and Redeemed Christian church of God )you have mentioned has no different interpretation of the scripture but just that they view the bible form a specific perspective, You needed to study to show yourself approved a workman that needed not to be ashamed but rightly dividing the word of truth. i am seriously praying for you that God in his infinite mercy and grace should intervene one day. but for now i wish you a jolly good ride in your recent found way

    Those of you who are condemning her decision out out of religion bigotry, it appears all of you are ignorant of the xtianity as a religion. Evry reasonable and minded person would testify that christianity is a religion of confusion. Ranging f from whether jesus is a god as purportd in John1:1, or the son of god as depicted inJohn3:6 ,or som of man as provided in Mathew12:38-40, or a man as contained in John8:40, act2:22 etc.

    You have my sympathy. You were really in a position to be confused, but you acted in error. You are bound to be more confused where you are now because all you are going to enjoy there is the carnality that will destroy you in the end. Nothing good comes as cheap as this. Your mother and your ex- husband are answerable to God for your soul. May God help them to rescue you from damnation.

    December 24, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    Hello Fareedah, I must say that you’re one in a million christian who decided to think deep enough to realize and see the diversity in Christianity. I believe all through your life you were definitely a Christian and you questioned the diversity behind the difference in faith and belief amongst the whole of Christendom.You also took a close look at certain dogma with rational view which God has bestowed on you and that is why the Quran strongly emphasize on we making good use of our brains and knowledge rather than just believing what others think or what they’ve been programmed to believe from childhood.
    You refused to approach Islam with prejudice and that is why you actually read the Quran and you understood compared to the way the Christian often say you need to have the holy ghost to understand the bible or you need to have the spirit. God is so merciful that he doesn’t need to complicate a book or ways intended to guide a believer.

    And if you may permit me, I have a question for other Christians who believe in different dogma , worship in different ways, and still believe they are ONE in Christianity. The question is: If Jesus Christ ( please be upon him) were to come back and we have the chance to meet him and ask him that what church , denomination or fellowship should we attend? is it catholic, anglican, methodist, baptist, Celestial or a religion which is of total submission to the will of Allah (ISLAM) e.t.c what do you think his answer would be to Christians i.e who are followers of Christ?

    Sometimes people look for excuses to further their ill thought wishes. I wont be surprised there is one rich Alhaji suitor around the corner and so she is laying the groundwork they agreed upon for phase two of the relationship. By the way she just jumped from the kitchen table into the frying pan as her excuse is very invalid or maybe she remains ungrounded also in her reasoning especially in what she was going into because I know that whereas the sects within Christianity only have some spoken words of conflict amongst themselves, the Muslim sects don’t just talk about their differences but kill each other for it; shia, suni, walabi and the list goes on? She is after a rich alhaji ojare. She should stop fooling us (herself) and daddy does not mind I guess because he possibly has a hint that alhaji is well loaded? Fareedah, please waka joor! Who does not want to hit a jackpot. no be naija woman you be?

    I really do not wish to argue,but i still wish to say few things. Actually,am a CHRISTIAN. If anybody wants to knw if JESUS is real. If u can be very honest with yourself,u can talk to Him: ‘JESUS,i dnt knw if the christians are right,but i want to know if u are real,show yourself to me’. If u were sincere,trust me,my lord will reveal himself to u. Secondly,hav u ever compared the testimony of muslims who turned xtian? None of them said dey were confused wit islam,dey simply had an encounter with my Lord. Pls,pls,pls,pls n pls. I dnt mean to argue wit anybody,am jus carrying out one of my reasons for living which is to spread the Gospel of Truth. Lastly,try n go to youtube to watch testimonies of people who converted.

    Whether u are a Christian or a Muslim only God (Allah in Arabic) knows who will go to heaven (Al Jannah in Arabic). We need to address the real issues confronting this nation – corruption, electricity, unemployment, education, poverty amidst plenty!

    Kindly get the Punch Newspaper of Monday, 23rd of December, 2013. Check page 23 and see how Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, the General Overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church condemns Christmas. He said Celebrating Christmas is idolatry.

    Hmmmm, one day, I repeat, one day, Christiandom will soon realize that, it is not only Christmas that is idolatry, but, Christianity as a whole, is idolatry, heretical and paganistic.

    Meanwhile, It behoves upon me, to inform you that, yesterday, 22nd of December, 2013, Myself, AbdulFatai Oluyemi, Saheed Oluomo, Deborah-Hikmat and her immediate sister, Miss Joy, now Halimat who just accepted Islam five days ago were at Nasfat Akure branch.

    It was interesting and motivational, when Sister Hikmat gave the audience, a powerful testimony on the truth of Islam. Incidentally, former Pastor Michael Omojo, now Abdur-Rahamon has already delivered a short sermon on “WHY HE LEFT CHRISTIANITY FOR ISLAM”

    In fact, Halimat, former Sister Joy, became convinced that, Islam is the only path to salvation, after her elder Sister, Deborah-Hikmat, had showed her, overwhelming scriptural evidences from Qur’an and Bible. Al-hamdulilahi, both of them with other nine Converts are doing well islamically.

    A simple question to all Xtians. Which of u has ever seen the original bible? Or was Jesus an englishman or spirit? I bet evn ur pastor has not. So y is it difficult to hv d original bible around? D truth is Xtianity is a huge conspiracy of the elite (if u understand wat i mean). Abraham, moses, Jesus, Muhammad were neva Xtians and they neva legislated any othr faith for man except to follow one true GOD in which dey believe nd follow. I advice u all to research into history. Research without prejudice. Check out d logo of the blue church in Bratislava, slovak republic. Church of ST Annie in budapest Hungary, cathedral in New Jersey USA, cathedral dome in italy, church of Krakow in poland, cathedral adoration chapel in Philippines, salt lake city UTAH USA, unknown church in france. E.t.c they all hav d logo of the one eyed god “Horus” who was born on december 25 ( ur Xmas date). Horus was an ancient Egyptian &Babylonian god called d “Sun god”. Why do u fink u worship on a “Sun day” not son day. No wonder pastor kumuyi said Xmas is an idolatry festival nd he was quick to receive condemnation frm his fellow pastors. Had today’s Bible been d word of GOD, u wouldn’t hav found so many contradictions in it. As for u fareedah, a warm congratulations to you for opening ur mind to receive d truth may ALLAH strengthen u. “Say i believe in Allah alone, his angels, his holy books, his messengers nd i do not segregate btw all of them (Allah’s messengers) and dey were not of the idolaters ” Quran.

    Christianity is not confusing and God is not an author of confussion,it is you that should check your life. Am nt that supprised because Jesus Christ said that He’s kept all but the children of pardition which i believe you’re one of them. Nobody is stopping you from making your choice but pls don’t condemn christianity and christians because the bilble says in the book of Romans that “there is therefore now no condemnation to them”;i.e those in Christ Jesus. I know you converted because you were not allowed to do some evil and terrible act in christianity for example #divoce

    One reason most people would be condemned would be because they passed judgement unfairly: having taken time to study books – including the Holy Bible and Holy Quran and other related texts, I have come to discover that there is only one God, who is just, fair and holy. ALL (religions) aim to help us understand this God better – to create a loving relationship between us, human beings. Whatever anyone does that negates the principle, “love thy God, … and thy neighbour as thyself”, is at best, satanic.

    Therefore, all judgement must be reserved till the Last Day. God is a spirit – He will only be worshipped in Spirit.

    Xtainity is confusionist, bible is jez a story book full of blasphemy-God begettian a son, God resting on d seventh day, God is confused, nakedness of d Prophets of God, etc. What is faith od pple bfr Jesus wen Jesus is d ONLY way? Indeed, Jesus was d only way in his time, likewise Noah was d only way is his time, as well as Solomon, David, Abraham etc.
    Meanwhile, every traditions in xtaindon are adobted from d pegans: wedding, naming, funeral, name them…what they do is jez to attribute some biblical verses. If anyone wanna against my view shld qoute any example(s) given by Jesus(himself) in d bible, after u pple claim u r d followers of Christ, and by dat u shld be followin his traditions not that of Jews bcos they wanna embrace ur “ill” Faith.
    To Mrs Fareedah, to choose Islam is by Allah(God)’s choice. It’s neva by ur own wisdom, It’s ur Creator that guided u. Neva leave Him, not matter d chanllenges, bcos u’ll definitely be tested, it’s a MUST. Bfr God confirmed d ritheous ones, He tested them with many calamities, after which they pass and God elevated them. Unlike xtainity, they’ll tell u to come for peace, calamity-free; but wen u embrace their ‘ill’ faith, God’s plan shall later come(if it contain calamities), no one has no choice, afterwhich they(xtains) ‘ll be preachin “patience” for u. May Allah Strenghten u. Ameen.

    Islam is not a religion of Peace. Take a look
    at the following
    verses from the qu’ran (1) Surah Al-baqarah
    chapter 2: 216 ”Holy fighting is ordained
    (prescribed) for all muslims, whether they
    like it or not, as far as it is good and
    approved by Allah through his prophet
    Mohammed” (2) Surah-Albaqarah 2:191
    ”And kill them wherever you find them, and
    turn them out from where they have turn
    you out. An Al-Fitnah is worse than killing.
    And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-Al-
    Ha ram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless
    they (first) fight you there. But if they attack
    you, then kill them. Shch is the recompense
    of the disbelievers.” Muslims are told to
    kill and fight in the cause of Allah. See also
    Surah Muhammed 47:4. In this very
    passage, Muslims are commanded by Allah
    to kill and smite the neck of anyone who
    does not accept the teaching of Islam, and
    according to the satanic verses, they
    (Muslims) would be helping Allah by so
    doing.I quote exactly as it is written in the
    Muslims Holy Qur’an: ”So, when you meet (in
    fight- Jihad in Allah’s Cause) those who
    disbelieve, smite (their) necks till when you
    have killed and wounded many of them,
    then blind and bond firmly (on them, i.e.
    Take them as captives). Thereafter (is the
    time) either for generosity (i.e free from
    them without ransom), or ransom
    (according to what benefits Islam),……. Thus
    u are ordered by Allah to continue in
    see also Surah Al-Anfal 8:12, ”…. I will cast
    terror into the hearts of those who have
    disbelieve, so strike them over the necks,
    and smlit over all their fingers and toes” see
    Surah Al-Nisa 4:101 and I quote ” For the
    unbelievers are unto you open enemies.”
    There are many more chapters and verses
    but in order to prevent much talk, I shall
    stop here. If these things are found in the
    ‘Holy book of the Muslims’, and they follow
    and believe d quran, how will u tell me that
    they av a PURE HEART??? Ablusion, of course
    is unnecessary, washing after peeing is a
    waste of time. There is no place in d Bible
    thet declares an unbeliever as an enemy, nor
    even to kill them. If a religion is not pure,
    how will the hearts of those who profess
    that religion be pure??? I believe u will
    answer dat.

    Well, i wont judge anybody, be it muslim or Christian, all I knw is that, Farreda or what is your name, you will soon find another reason to leave this very religion u r in now, If you are a true Christian, you wont listen to what anybody says abt doctrinal churches, as we have CAC, RCCG, catholic, Methodist, etc in Christianity; Moslems too have Nawarudeen, Ansarudeen, Nasfat, Teblic, Shamsudeen etc. I live among muslims, i knw wot they r saying abt each other and I knw their doctrines differs. Though Bible was originally written with greek language through the Holy Spirit, to make Bible very easy for you and I, it was interpretes to English language, from English lang. to other type of languages; so what is confusing about that? There is still time for you to make a u-turn to where you were coming from. A word is more than enough for a wise. Jesus is coming soon

    December 25, 2013 at 6:27 pm


    Hi Lesley, I’m glad you’ve put forward your comment as a dialogue rather than a debate. Surely you’re a very polite person who respect other people’s religion but question some things.As regards those questions, I’ll take them one after the other and I’I’d like you to read it with great understanding.

    FIRST RESPONSE: Surat Al-baqarah 2: 216 talks about holy fighting ordained (Jihad) for we Muslims.
    let us take a look at the meaning of Jihad:
    JIHAD: A holy war waged by Muslims against infidels
    JIHAD: A holy struggle or striving by a Muslim for a moral or spiritual or political goal
    you can check online dictionary for the definition if you doubt the one above.

    EXPLANATION: You see, when you’re trying to propagate a religion to people who are ignorant, arrogant, idol worshipers e.t.c, you can’t expect things to go down well without a form of struggle or fight.Allah knows that our holy prophet would have to defend himself against the mushiriks and idol worshipers on those times because they’ll always see him as as imposter who have come to desecrate what their forefathers have passed on to them for many years. If I may ask,would you fold your arms when you know your enemies are coming to wage war against your people? ready to kill you and everyone who believe in the worship of one true GOD.? The verse tells us to fight a holy war which means to defend ourselves from infidels and those who didn’t believe in God . There is part in the verse which says ” …. even though you dislike it, it may be that which you dislike is that which is good for you…” Not every one would love to shed the blood of another man but if that man decides to kill you , would you turn the other cheek or rather, defend yourself at all cost”.. THE MOTIVE OF THE VERSE IS FOR WE MUSLIMS TO DEFEND OURSELVES AND NOT KILL JUST FOR THE LOVE OF GOD OR TRYING TO SPREAD ISLAM.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT : Can you imagine a man deliberately killing people just for them to surrender that there is no other God but Allah.?if you read history well enough, you’ld see that the transgressors and idol worshipers of those days had a huge army enough to wipe out all of the clans of anyone who would even think of doing such a thing.

    SECOND RESPONSE: SURAT AL -BAQARAH 2:191 talks about slaying the transgressors wherever ye find them.

    This is like a sequel to the first response above: The mushirks had already waged a war on ISLAM because they wanted to stop the propagation or spread of Islam.Just like when there was tension in the air when the jews were looking for Jesus and his disciples especially (peter and two sons of zebedi) were beating their breast that they are prepared to protect their master, they were prepared to die for him and protect him against the jews. Jesus had to flee from one place to another the same way prophet Muhammad also did.
    now let us take a look at the verse surat al-baqarah 2:191 but before that, why don’t we look at the context ( the text before or after a statement);

    From the above, it is clear that Allah wants us to defend ourselves against those who fight us but we should NOT START THE HOSTILITIES.
    Allah is drawing our attention to the way the enemies of ISLAM drove people who believe out of their houses, render them homeless and are made to suffer.
    PERSECUTE: Cause to suffer: . When someone makes you suffer, Allah is telling us this is worse than slaughter and you’you’d agree with me that if God intends suffering on a person, the person would rather prefer death.
    The verse also warns us not to attack unless they attack first .If you read this with clear understanding without prejudice, you’ll see that Allah wants us to defend ourselves rather than expect a thousand angels to come to our rescue. This is common sense when you look at it from a realistic perspective.

    THIRD RESPONSE: surat Muhammad 47:4:
    The verse says “When you meet in battle or Jihad fight, those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them…….”
    WOW this is evident that when you come in close contact with your enemies at war-front , it either you kill or be killed. These enemies were not prepared to hold them captive, they wanted to wipe them off never to exist. This wasn’t a child’s play of turn the other cheek. I doubt anyone who turn the other cheek these days lol. be that as it may, if spreading ISLAM was to be done in a land where there are no idol worshipers or people who don’t associate other gods with Allah, it would have been easy even for MOSES, JESUS e.t.c Imagine if U.S wants to take over our country just because we don’t want to acknowledge gays or for other political gain, are we going to stand there and watch?. Allah has created this defense instinct in us naturally that we must protect what we want or have with all our might and by his grace. Example is what you see today about the war in IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.
    This verse also is talking about those rough times where you have defend yourself or be killed and who knows the idolaters might have prevailed just like they’ve prevailed in other countries that we know.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT: have you asked yourself that, why do people tackle or smite at a religion that were very much outnumbered in those days and have defended itself all the way till this day and yet people don’t pay attention to other idol worshiping countries.? Do you realize how many prophets have gone down in history for trying to propagate the oneness of God and have been persecuted in the process and yet God still continue to send several prophets to different clans and when it came to our prophet Muhammad (PBOH) people started raising exceptions, people started grumbling that how did he manage to pull it off and so on.. then they started looking for ways like this to prove to the world that he propagated Islam by means of compulsion , that he killed innocent women and children. My friend it was only by the grace of Allah .

    We can go endlessly with this but i’m going to leave it at that,I believe I don’t need to write a millions words before I can make someone see the truth with just few words.
    By the way I just remembered, in the bible, when God sent Noah to his people to repent and believe in oneness of God and they didn’t hearken to the message, God destroyed them with flood for not listening. Should be conclude that God went Jihad on them? God was ruthless?. If your answer is what I think it would be , then why question a man who had similar intention as ordained by Allah. ? Why question the action of Allah in the Quran if the same Allah did similar action to the people of Noah?.**Sigh**

    December 25, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    @truth, and if you think what I’ve said is nonsense , why don’t you go back to history a little bit in the time of CRUSADE where the Christians killed themselves for political reasons and also killed Muslims too over land dispute. Its a shame you haven’t done your homework but anyways I’ve given you a head start so go back in time and see how your forefathers laid the foundation and on what basis.

    And as for the bible where Jesus asked you to turn the other cheek, why is that the same bible talks about Jesus Christ telling his disciples to arm themselves against the Jews . is that quality of someone who wants to turn the other cheek? There isn’t a mystery what I’ve just put forward to you. here is the verse.LUKE 22:36 and if you want to talk about the context Here is the context.

    35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

    36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

    38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

    Now I want you to tell me that the sword he was talking about is not SWORD but something else or that they want to use the SWORD to pill apples?


    Do you want to talk about Luke 19:27

    27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

    If you want the context , you can do that yourself with your own KJV.

    I asked a question that if an enemy ,take for instance the U.S decides to take over our country just because we don’t want to acknowledge gays or for other political gain, are you going to fight and protect what you have and have worked for? or be a coward and run for your life?

    Bible says people are perish out of ignorant.I believe U choosed that way ignorantly bcos U were confused.Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry,for anger rest in the bosom of fools,the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit (Ecclesiastes 4;7-9).To everything there’s a season and time under the heaven:A time to weep and a time to laugh,a time to get and a time to lose,a time to love and a time to hate,a time of war and a time of peace (Eccl.3;1-8). U couldn’t find peace bcos U did not abide in Christ Jesus and his words.The word of God says in John 15;4-7,if U abide in me and my words abide in U,U’ll ask what U desire and it shall be done for U.Vs 5 says Jesus is the vine and U’re the branches,for without Jesus Christ U can do nothing.If U can’t find peace in christ Jesus,U can’t find it any other place in this life and under the earth no matter what,bcos Jesus is the Prince of peace whom all power belongs to.Only by the mention of His name Jesus every knee should bow,of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord(Philippians 2:10-11). The word of God said,peace I leave with U,my peace I give to U,not as the world gives do I give to U.Let not your heart be troubled,neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).

    Indeed u found peace… Or d easiest way to divorce ur husband. U can continue to lie to itself, but know now, that every decision comes wit a price. Although did one u hav made, may cost u or soul. Enjoy ur religion of self deceit as u enjoy both d alhaji’s money and d peace there in.

    Seriuosly: I was thinking of converting to Islam – so that I could marry as many wives as possible, at the least up to 4 – women’s wahala is too much; maybe if I have up to that 4 then they can be competiting among themselves and give me peace of mind. I was just thinking aloud, ….
    By the way, shariah – the law of moses – is quite cool – God’s direct judgement. I wouldn’t mind it – if I had the opportunity, Nigeria – should follow (elements of) that law: for example, all this gay and nudity nonsense would have ended long ago.

    The long and short of the story is that: God is one; He is a spirit; He is also a holy God: sinners – liars, thieves, murderers, haters,gossips, backbiters, whoremongers, adulterers, sexual perverts, fornicators, the malicious, the decietful, etcetera – will have no place with Him. Definitely, to succeed (in pleasing God in living that blameless life), we will need God’s (spirit of) holiness – the same spirit that worked in the lives of the patriachs. Let us ask God, each of us, for that Spirit, now.

    @keffy, is it a now a crime for someone to be in doubt and decides to read two books and discover that one book is clearly understandable compared to the other ? that you don’t need the help of a holy ghost to understand what has been translated in plain English language.? The problem most Christians have is that they easily think of other religion besides Christianity as garbage without knowing and understanding the other religion well enough. The book is available but they won’t read because they’ve been programmed to hate a religion because of the news they hear on TV and violence going on around.
    Please the Quran is a book that has a translated version in English, I beg Christians to please read and if they spot any verse they can’t understand, please put it forward so we can both look at it as a form of dialogue and not debate and vice versa to we Muslims as well about the bible.

    You can also read the answers I gave to some questions asked about Islam if you read up on the comments.

    God never gave man religion. God gave man Himself as food for him to eat. The problem with man is that he is one with Satan, the enemy of God and of man himself. It was the Devil who produce religion to confuse man. Religion is a way of worshipping God without the Lord’s presence and not by the Spirit. Anything we do without the Lord’s presence and outside the Spirit is rejected by God. God is not the author of confusion, it is Satan who is confusing man from eating the tree of life that he may live. It is only when we eat the Lord that we can live. When we eat the tree of knowledge of good and evil we die. Religion is a way of tree of knowledge of good and evil. Religion taught man to be good and moral,God is not interested in a good man neither is He interested in an evil man. His interest is that man will eat Him as the tree of life that he may live. Man is made as a vessel to contain and express God.

    Alhamdulillah. Mrs Faridah I am happy for u. Indeed the true religion of God is Islam, even the Jesus peace and blessing of Allah be upon him is a Muslim.
    My advise to u now is u have to continiu seeking for islamic knowladge, am sure it will guide u to transform ur self in an islamic way of life.
    Secondly, ther are many- many among our christians brothers and sisters who really understand the truth, am sure they will soon follow ur footstep to embrace islam. The true religion of Almighty God.
    May almighty Allah guide u thrlugh out. Ur life here and the hereafter. Amin. From ur brother in islam. Congrats once again.

    @Parousiah, So you mean God created man not for the purpose of worship but for man to eat God or part of God!!!!? what are you saying? Are you an atheist? Do you need to see God before you need worship him? What kind of Dogma are you trying to orchestrate? God is also not interested in a good or an evil person?.NA WA OOOO. You’re only introducing your own form of conjecture.but seriously, are you an atheist or a christian or something else? because I’m very sure you’re not a Muslim.

      We speak in tongues satan is confuse 4ever and ever. Parousiah is a Christian, go through his contribution very well, i pray the Holy Spirit will guide you through. you need to “eat God” instead of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. You need Him, You need Him. Paul did more… but he needed Him just as you need Him.

    It is a pity that pity fall into the land of pity why? Becos u made human doctrines ur standard instead of making GOD I mean the word of GOD ur standard. 2 Timothy 2 vs 15 : ” Study to show thyself approved unto GOD a workman that needeth not to be ashamed ,rightly dividing the word of truth ” hear me ur decision does not change whom GOD is infact the word of GOD will remain the same. Hw abt even when u call urself a christian and U’re nt living a life that pleases GOD I mean christlike way of living. Jesus Christ , the Son of GOD had promised us the HOLYSPIRIT , our Comforter to remind us all what he says….. Oh the word of GOD can be understood and obeyed by the help of the HOLYSPIRIT. John 14 vs 6 :” Jesus Christ saith unto him , I am the way , the truth , and the life : no one cometh unto the Father , but by me . A life without Christ is in Crisis ; A life that is not Save is not Safe. John 8 vs 36 : If the Son therefore shall set U free , ye shall be free indeed. J- Jesus Christ

    Mrs Vivian, I have been short of words to speak to you. Its unfortunate u nor d people applauding u understand dat Christianity is not a religion. It is a way of life. Its so sad lots of people don’t know that. I read some fellows trying to support the killings u people engage in as defence. It is one thing to defend, it is yet another to assault. See what boko harams are doing. Is dat defence or outright assault, manslaugther.? I have asked some muslis dis same question and they keep saying they arenot muslims. What are they then? Jihadist? Are they not one and same. Why will u force people to believe u? Is that not animalistic. It is visible to d blind and audible to d deaf, that islam is a religion of death. Its just a shame for vivian to make such an uninformed decision. Notice, I haven’t used any word like church since. Becos, I don’t preach religion. I preach Christ. Yes it is true dat many so called pastors have disappointed the faith with several confusing practices. Christ warned against this cos He knew such people will be. But that again proves the authenticity of the Christian Faith. Every original thing must have imitations, fakes, pseudos. And that is why u see d confusions. But islam has no imitations or fakes. That simply proves that, there is nothing about it. Absolutely nothing spectacular. It is just a religion. Just like any and every other. No spiritual life experience in it. Mrs Vivian, I will admonish u to retrace ur steps back very swiftly and urgently. And have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. God bless u.

    It is only when you see christainity as a religion you miss it.. You get confused.. He that is born of spirit is spirit……. You will leave a victorious life wen you embrace the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.. That is when” grace” comes into play.. Christainity is not a religion of says don’t do this, don’t do that…law speaks of commandments nd becos of that you get confused becos u feel your obeying sometins where as your not obeying others………………………….. But grace speaks “DONE” you start operating from rest becos Jesus has paid the price for us on the cross so we are no longer band by d laws and commandment but by Grace… So even wen you’ve disobeyed God in the past.. Even wen you’ve taken lives wit Ʊя̩̥̊ own hands in d past “””the moment you accept that Jesus Christ has paid for your sins on the Cross of Calvary and that you are no longer condenmed then you become saved”””” shikinah.. Your salvation is dependent on believing In JESUS CHRIST.

Victor James Osimhen, a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Napoli and the Nigeria national team on Thursday night, October 29, received the first red card of his football career in Napoli’s 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
