Christmas is an annual festival in remembering the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a time of giving, showing love, blessings and also testifying the name of God who gave us his only begotten to die on the cross of Calvary, however some churches like the mountain of miracles ministries headed by Dr Daniel Olukoya and Deeper Life Gospel owned By Pastor Kumuyi don’t partake in Christmas celebrations based on different reasons.
The General overseer of the Mountain Of Fire, Dr Daniel Olukoya believes Christmas is unbiblical. According to the general overseer, December 25 is a date set aside by ancient romans for mass festivals by the worshippers of the sun. He said no book in the Bible claimed Jesus was born on the 25th of December instead the church engage members in fasting and prayers on the 25th of December.
A mega church headed by Pastor Williams Folorunsho Kumuyi is also one of the churches that don’t take part in Christmas celebrations. The general overseer (Kumuyi) believes that Christmas originated from an idolatrous background.
