The African all-time FIFA World Cup top scorer and former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has opened up on his Christian life.

The popular footballer said he is now a part-time Christian due to how most churches have turned away from the truth.

After being baptised in the Methodist Church, Asamoah Gyan says he no longer goes to church or reads the Bible, adding that he is still a righteous person regardless.

"As Kofi Kinaata puts it, I am a part-time Christian. I was baptised in the Methodist Church, but I no longer go to church.

"Now more than ever, they don’t speak the truth. Some of the churches don’t; however, the decision not to go to church doesn’t make you a bad person," he said in an interview on Abeiku Santana’s Atuu program.

He added, "Yes, I am a Christian. I just don’t go to church. I pray; we all pray. I don’t remember the last time I read my Bible, but I am a true Christian."

The striker who played for England-based Sunderland and others revealed that he is always ready to listen to the gospel from anybody, depending on whether the person is worth being a preacher.

"My mind is always hot." "If you sit me down to preach God’s word, I will listen, but before then, I need to analyse the person, especially when I know their lifestyle," said Asamoah Gyan.
