Controversies have continued to trail the declaration by the founder and General overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministry, MFM, Pastor D.K Olukoya that is not biblical to celebrate Christmas otherwise known as the birth of Jesus.
The latest reaction is coming from another man of God countering Olukoya’s statement about Christmas.
The founder and president of Mount Zion Drama Ministry, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye who stated that he did not care if Jesus was born on December 25th or not was quoted as saying, “Which day was cancer born? Yet, the world give cancer a date to celebrate as World Cancer Day.
“Which day was diabetics born to earn it a world diabetics day? Which day were children born before we began to celebrate children day?
“Which day was world Girl child? Which day was Aids born? Which day was Father born that we now celebrate world Father day?
“You never disagree on any of the chosen date by the United Nation dedicated to celebrating diseases and infirmities.
“It is share ignorance and knowledges to make a man argue dedicating a day to celebrate the creator of heaven and the earth.” Bamiloye wrote on his page in his Christmas message to fans and followers.
Pastor Olukoya, however, was not the only Nigerian man of God that do not believe in the celebration of Christmas.
Others like Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper life Bible Church, Seven Days Adventist Church also toe this path but with different analogies.
This conflicting doctrines set-up by church leaders were argued to have been the basis of discouragement for many Christians from committing themselves to the service of God.
The debate over the celebration of Christmas has been over several years ago and it will continue to dominate discussion every year.
