The General Overseer, Deeper Life Christian Ministry, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, has endorsed the position of Dr. Daniel Olukoya that December 25th was not the birth day of Jesus Christ.
Dr. Olukoya is General Overseer (Worldwide), Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).
Kumuyi made this known during the annual December retreat held at the Deeper Life Camp in Ogun state. He said, “my people have gone astray, you’ve gone back into the world. All the merriment of Christmas, drinking, all the celebration of Egyptians is now upon you…come to Jesus.”
He further said, “the ministry has never celebrated Christmas since inception. It actually came from idolatrous background. That is why we never sing Christmas carols. The essence of the December retreat is to reconnect ourselves to the Lord because it is a holiday period.
“You will never hear us say Christmas retreat but December Retreat.”
To further buttress this point, controversial On Air Personality, Daddy Freeze, took to his instagram account to state his stand about Christmas.
Freeze said, “at least I’m not the only one warning you about how the wrath of God will consume those practising this abomination”.
Freeze also referred to the words of Olukoya which was on his account.
Bemigho Reno Omokri an activist and a one-time adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan wouldn’t let the Christmas day controversy slide without giving his opinion.
Reno in his words, said: “May I specifically appreciate the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire Ministries, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, for his teaching that all members of MFM should not observe Christmas. From personal discussions, I know that other GOs feel the same way, but are not courageous enough to say it out loud”.
