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”. Below are his reasons for turning into a Muslim
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. Unlike the trinity doctrine taught by Christians.
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. So those All Muslims but Christians eat Pork.
