What Ghanaians are saying

Sorkpor Che Tsatsu commented:

It will end in tears. U were not a Christian. U only fill forms asking for religion with Christianity. No true Christian who had an encounter with God can change faith. It is one thing to be a Christians and another to have an encounter with God that will change ur life completely.

She is just still your "girlfriend" . And you are converted to Islam because of her. So let's look at the other side of the coin, that a guy of your age and standard should have reasoned. If things don't end up working well with both of you, you gonna be converted back to??? Also remember that religion is a spiritual call not just any kind of invitation . Stop walking in and out of religions my people.
