13 Reasons Why Emmanuel Adebayor Dumped Christianity For Islam

That Togolese footballer, Emmanuel Adebayor converted to Islam is no longer news. The news had gone viral and the Aston Villa bound striker had also confirmed it.

Adebayor has now come out to fully address the issue by giving reasons why he converted to Islam. He justified his new found faith by saying Muslims are like Jesus and also described them as” truer followers of Christ”.

Read below (Source: The Herald):

1. Jesus (pbuh) taught that there is only One God and Only God should be worshipped as taught in Deut 6:4, Mark 12:29. Muslims also believe this as taught in the Qur’an verse 4:171.

2. Jesus (pbuh) didn’t eat pork as taught in Leviticus 11:7 , and neither do Muslims as taught in the Qur’an verse 6:145.

3. Jesus (pbuh) greeted with the words “as salaamu alaikum” (Peace be with you) in John 20:21. Muslims also greet each other this way.

4. Jesus (pbuh) always said “God Willing” (inshallah), Muslims say this too before doing anything as taught in the Qur’an verses 18:23-24.

5. Jesus (pbuh) washed his face, hands, and feet before praying. The Muslims do the same.

6. Jesus (pbuh) and other prophets of the Bible prayed with their head to the ground (see Matthew26:39). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur’an verse 3:43.

  1. Christ don’t need the”pbuh” cus he his peace and thats why we christians dont use it
    What do they know about life after death,forgiveness , salvation
    When i say jesus is in heaven can they say same.

  2. he is not a Christian rather a church goer ,he just doing dis 4 cheap popularity. he was never knwn 4 christainity! lolz cheap publicity indeed.

  3. what pain me most when people say things without prof. Here is adebayo giving references to both quran n bible. And u all are caling him a confused. WHO IS NOW CONFUSED

    • Adebayo is confused I wonder if he knows right from left….just tell him that xtianity exist 560 or so yrs before birth of Mohammed. All what is in the bible is the pirated copy in quran.

  4. Adeboyo don’t deciv urself ok!! Tel us ur real qualms we ll understand….if all what u quoted by Jesus in d quran are correct then why do u run after those that never beliv wat he brot lik peace,salvation,eternity,forgiveness, love etc? Alaye u re a confused man frm hme Adebayo

  5. hmmmm…..don’t let Adebayour or whatever cause any prb between each other…all I kw is that God knw everyfn and dere s no two God except ONE…all d best for Adebayour.

  6. Let me remind the said Emmanuel Adebayor that Jesus was not a Muslim. If you became a Muslim to be a follower of Jesus, be duly reminded that there is no Muslim on earth whose way of life is interndem with the teaching of Jesus. Jesus himself said, “I’m the way, the truth & the life, no one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6),” but Muslims don’t believe that. Muslims don’t believe that Jesus is the son of God. They don’t beieve in the finished work of grace on the cross of calvary. Jesus died to free us from the power of sin but Muslims believe you can be a sinner & still make paradise if your good works are more than your bad works. This is a confusion in itself that undermines the purpose of creation & the integrity of God.The fact is that there is no Muslim that has salvation because Islam is a denouncement of the teachings of Jesus.

  7. All adebayo said about Christ is true but he left many more unmentioned. Jesus Christ came to give us life in abundance and in addition to what adebayo quoted, He also told us that He is way, the truth and salvation and no one goes to the Father except through the son. what usually baffles me is when some people turn simple login on its head. which one is correct, the reference material or the material citing the reference? If the gospel of Christ is being rejected by anyone, that person automatically loses the right to refer to Christ words to form the basis of their faith.

  8. My dear SEA congratulations to you may ALLAH bless you.You are welcome in ISLAM,may the LORD give you all you want.Proud to be Muslim and proud to be Togolese

  9. Thank you Betty……People should know that going to church doesn’t make one a Christian….Romans 12:12…”Do not be conformed to the world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may know the good and acceptable will of God….

  10. nd that’s just the total truth ’bout our God…….in Him we live and have our being…….Hey Adebayor…..lemme shock you…..God doesn’t need you to survive….You need God to survive…….

  11. Choice they say can make or mar you. Why didn’t he compare Jihad practice to something we ain’t aware of in the Bible. Really pissing# You were never a Christian; a follower of Christ because you would know better if you were

  12. Welcome bro to the only religion that is acceptable by God Almighty. May Allah streinghten our faith and forgive our short-comings and enlighten us more on the deen. (Aameen Ya Rabb)

  13. Nigerians like dwelling on religion to divide them. Ah!! Yesterday it was buharis wife giving someone a handshake and today it’s a footballer “dumping” one religion for another. Smh. Can’t u people just focus on growth and prosperity and forget about religious divisions?

  14. it has always been Sheikh/Ustas who know Islam so deep make their way to Christianity after deep research of the Koran and Holy Bible and compering the two and discovered the light and darkness. not somebody like Adebayo who don’t know how to say a common Christian prayer

  15. Does DT add to ur bank Alc…its nt abt leaving one religion for d oda. D fact is d life u r living here on earth does it pls God…killing innocent souls is it d rit tin to do as a Muslim…? Wateva we do on earth now wil b used against us on d judgement day…all we nid do is live a gud life and practice wat we preach and nt d oda way round..

  16. U no see how him de prosper?…..as e stands now him no get club….going down down down…..4 asenal to mancity…..4rm mancity 2 real madrid……4rm real madrid 2 tothenham…..4rm tothenham 2 crystal palace….4rm here him go enta mali go play….. nonsense…..

  17. It is just a simple arithmetic, comparing his success when he was a Christian to now as a Muslim shows that he has fallen completely out of the track of favour. Even tyson did the same after then how is his condition till date?

  18. The reason why he said he dump Christianity is because he a place he worship idol, in Christianity you can’t serve God with pure heart and serve idol, but in other religion’s you can whatsoever and serve idol, I don’t blem him is our so called compromise man of God who supposed to be preaching salvation, holiness, repentance, and the love of God, they went about preaching prosperity for their pocket, eating with the devil’s in the name of fame, men and brethren it’s well with us, soon or later rapture will take place, how prepared are you………..?

  19. Abdulsalam Umar at least it’s not an offence punishable with death to leave my religion. If he had converted from Islam to Christianity, you would’ve been hearing “kill him”, “behead him”, etc.

  20. What makes you a Christian is first you accepting Christ as your lord and Savior, secondly, you forsaking your old life and living the new life in Christ Jesus by living what is called the Christ like life and no more to be conformed to the ways of the world which was your old life like living in sin (fornication, lies, stealing, killing, jealousy, envy, strive, bearing false witness etc) and beginning to live a life of righteousness in Christ Jesus. Anything other than this…. You are nothing but a church goer.

  21. Emmih CHuccz J. Nelson adebayor’a career is a success idiot him playing in hotspur,Madrid, arsenal and city … Remember he’s in his resting age…. And for the Islamic comment I guess the king of assist in the world mesut ozil is a Christian….. Always know what to utter … U asshole
