Christmas Is Idolatrous, Don't Celebrate It ––Pastor Kumuyi

The General Overseer of the Deeper Christian
Life Ministry, Pastor W.F Kumuyi, has warned
members of the church against celebrating
Christmas, saying the celebration of Christmas is
idolatrous and unscriptural.
Kumuyi warned that doing so is making
Christians to go back from the commandment of
Jesus Christ.
"We don’t celebrate Christmas. It actually
came from idolatrous background. That is why
you don’t hear us sing what they call Christmas
carol, Never! We always say it is the December
retreat. We are only gathering together
because it is the holiday period and love the
lord more, and rededicate ourselves more."
The cleric said this on Saturday at the annual
national December convention of the church,
which held at the church’s camp ground in Ogun
He said, “When you find anybody coming in, or
any leader, trying to introduce the idolatry of
mystery Babylon, that they call Christmas and
you want to bring all the Christmas carol saying
that is the day that Jesus was born, and you
don’t find that in the Acts of the Apostles or in
the early church, then you don’t find that in the
church either. If you don’t know that before,
now you know.”
He warned that any of the church’s leaders that
tried to introduce the “idolatry of Christmas”
into any section of the church would be
sanctioned, while also encouraging other
believers in Christ to jettison the celebration as
part of their sacrifice to perfection.
Kumuyi said the duty of the church is to make
people more like Jesus Christ, not join in
worldly celebrations.
“We are not trying to make the church turn like
the world. We want it to be like Jesus Christ,
and more like the Apostles. If you don’t have
that mind with us, then you have permission to
go to other places,” he added.
