Popular Ghanaian actor turned Evangelist, Majid Michel has explained why he never liked going to church.
He disclosed that he is not a churchgoer during an interview with Fifi Folson on Joy FM’s The Reason is Jesus program.
“I have never liked going to church. I am not a churchgoer because I hate waking up in the morning. Since I was young, my siblings teased me about it. [When] I was in church, I am like ‘mum I want to eat bread and egg’. It [the service] is too early and I never ever in my entire life enjoyed church, and I still don’t,” Majid stated.
His challenge of not understanding sermons sometimes is one of his reasons.
“My problem was, I never understood, what they were teaching, and this was what created the hunger as I grew up. I knew God, but I didn’t understand the sermons and the teachings I was hearing.”
Majid Michel recounted his encounter with a pastor at the Action Chapel in Dansoman.
“The pastor was an anchor in my life at the moment,” he said.
Majid further revealed how his interest in acting can be regenerated.
“I can regenerate the interest if I want to but the interest for Hollywood, and doing all these movies I wanted to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger – jumping from the helicopters, the thrill has just left. It moved to knowledge in the things of God. It was a hunger for knowledge.”
