"Why I converted to Islam' - former actress Vivian Metchie opens up

Recently divorced Nollywood actress Vivian Metchie says she recently adopted the Islamic faith because she found the Christian faith too confusing. Speaking with Yes! magazine on her conversion, 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".
The mother of 4 who has adopted Fareedah as her muslim name says 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.

congrats on your new found faith. different strokes for different folks, that's what they say. Passion and conviction matter a lot and since you weren't coerced into it, i believe the sky is the beginning for you.

hehehehehe, my sister,madam TUBAN RANA, you were never a christian at any given time. you have only now adopted a religion. i just hope it is not one alhaji confusing you because if there is any religion that is clear on any mater, it is the christian faith.you were only born a christian and you practiced it for a while. and i hope you know that as you have denied christ, so will he deny you.

She's right you know, Christianity has so many denominations with different doctrines and beliefs leading to confusion. I don't know about Islam though but only God knows which one is the THE TRUTH at the end.

Common don't tell me its because of the division in christianity that made you to leave, even in islam there are 72 factions and one of those factions believe in bombing and all that... They are as complex and confusing as christianity. I hope these complexity won't drive you nuts and turn u into a pagan or terrorist. I wish you well in your new found peace and religion. Allah bless you.

I’m glad you have found peace but POINT OF CORECTION Fareedah! Just as the body is made up of many parts, Christianity as a body of Christ is made up of many parts. Hence,Catholic, Deeper life and RCCG are denominations under one religion; which is Christianity.

A friend of mine took the same decision when he was attending a bible school, he couldn't cope with the baseless assumptions and blind faith required to be a Christian (his words). It is likely I do the same once I am certain that Islam is different from what Northern Nigerian Muslims and terrorists practice.
