      Why is it that there is always no genuine reasons to convert to islam from these conpromisers,only when there is a need to defend their means of livelihood. Or can someone tell me of anyone that converted to Islam bcos he or she experience genuine salvation from Sin,Satan and Sex (Immorality)? It is always conversion to Islam for the fleeting,mundane things of this life that passes away. Or many at times muslims lure the covetous around them by promising them money, wife and/or trip to mecca. But only the simple would be deceived into practicing the same religion with demons of hell.

      @Bench, What did christian Hitler use to preach when he chose to wipe out more than six million of his fellow christians in Europe, pre & post second world war. Do Lords Resistance Army “LRA” not use guns and violence to preach in Uganda and the entire Central and Eastern African corridor of Africa, killing innocent people in the last 20 years of its existence in defence of the Biblical doctrines. HYPOCRITES.!!!

      That is not true. Terrorists hide behind Islam to kill innocent defenseless people. Islam does not condone terrorism of any kind but call for and propagate peace.

        Yes,this religion that can only be spread and defended by terror and not by the truth. I Islam has been attacked freely the way Christianity is being attacked around the world,Islam could have been reduced to trash in the eyes of those blind people that are still adherents of the religion. They this thing i’m saying thats why AK47,Sword and Act of terror is the weapons they use to defend their demonic religion. But truth is the only weapon to defend the christian religion,and if muslim think that their ‘truth’ is capable to withstand the Bible Truth,let keep sword,AK47 and dead threat aside and open their borders for the Gospel of light to come in, let us see what the Sword of the Spirit (Bible Truth) would do to their weak ‘truth’ that they have been defending by the arms of the flesh. Nobody knows better than muslims that they live in a thatch house, yet they like to strike a match and throw at those who live in a concrete house. No religion treat human lives the way Islam does. Its a pity!

    Shame on all you christians making nasty comments here I thought moderate christianity embraces religious tolerance or do you people follow extremist christianity. Leave the guy alone let him follow what is heart guides him to. Is it by force that he must come to your church and pay tithe

      September 27, 2016 at 5:59 PM

      but he said it himself that he is now Muslim, I see no reason of accusing my religion, Islam, why not allow him to make his own choice.

    Disappointed with you all, are we saying bad things about your religion ? No , are saying that because the Klux Klaus clan are Christians , all Christians are
    Killers and racists ? No , was Hitler, Pinochet, and many others not Christians ? Are we grouping you all under one umbrella ? No , so please stop the hating game, if the guy decides to change his religion , it is his right , religion is only a guide , a moral compass and we all have the freedom to choose our way

    Am so amazed wit d people, Y argument bcos Emmenike joined islam? if u re talking of terorrist act~ wat i belived is, there is gud & bad elements in chrisianity, desame thing in islam. So, Emmenike is matured enough 2 decide d best 4 his life.

  27. zabiya

    July 6, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    Yes De killed but killed their fellow xtians not Muslims, what ever abnormality or evil you hear of in the church is an act within the christians , members of the same faith. It is not everyone that is white or bears an English or Biblical name that is a christian. Emmanuel Emenike I am happy for you if that is where you have found peace go on. Allah ya taimake ka. God is love let’s show some respect pls.

    Let it be clear that a man is free to convert to any religion he likes as many times as he wants,but any religion that castigate conversion from or to is not worthy of been called a religion but a sect,Also be you a Muslim or christian or whatever,calling the other outright evil shows your little knowledge of what religion stands for.
