The unfortunate truth is that most people who call themselves Christians live nothing like Christ and just take His name in vain.
When a person decides to convert from one religion to another, he/she makes this choice willingly and is ready to devote his/her life to the chosen religion.
NAIJ.com has listed 4 famous football players who decided to convert from Islam to Christianity.
During the collection of information, we also debunked rumors about religious views of footballers Kevin-Prince Boateng and Samuel Kuffour.
1. Djibril Cissé
Djibril Cissé is a French footballer who plays for JS Saint-Pierroise. In 2004, when Cissé played for Liverpool, he broke his right leg during the game against Blackburn Rovers.
Cisse was born Muslim but converted to Christianity in 2007.
2. George Weah
The Liberian star is regarded as one of the greatest African players of all time and of his generation.
In 1995 he was named FIFA World Player of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or. Weah converted from Protestant Christianity to Islam and practiced Islam for 10 years before converting back. He hopes for peace for Muslims and Christians, and says they are "one people."
Nowadays Weah professes Christianity..
3. Kevin-Prince Boateng
Many people believe that a Ghanaian international footballer, who was nominated for African Footballer of the Year, is a pure Christian.
There are rumors that the young footballer converted to Islam because of his Turkish friends and girlfriend, but after he met his bride-to-be Jenny he turned back to Christianity.
4. Samuel Kuffour
Contrary to reports, Kuffour was and still is a devoted Christian. During his interview with BBC for the 'Heart and Soul' documentary, the former Bayern Munich defender admitted that some German teammates were surprised to see him praying to God before games.
He also said his Christian faith gave him the strength to accept the death of his 15-month-old daughter Godiva who drowned after falling into a swimming pool at the star's home in Accra.
