The general overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Daniel Olukoya, has explained the reason why the church does not participate in the celebration of Christmas.

According to The Cable, Olukoya said the celebration of Christmas is “unbiblical.”
Pastor Olukoya stated this on Wednesday, December 25 at the church's “Manner Water Service” which coincided with the 2019 Christmas celebration, at the Church’s Headquarters in Lagos.

Olukoya stressed that no book in the bible recorded the word “Christmas” or that Jesus was born on December 25.

“If you really study the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, there is no word like Christmas,’’
Olukoya said.

He claimed that December 25 is a date originally set aside by the ancient Romans for the Mars festival by the worshippers of the sun.

Olukoya said the birth of Christ was subsequently co-opted into the same date to give the Mars festival more popularity and then renamed “Christmas”.

He warned modern Christians to stop promoting such an “unbiblical” celebration.
