Pastor Kumuyi Calls Christmas Idolatry: Deeper Life Church GO Warns “Stop Celebrating Xmas”

Popular man of God and the founder of Deeper Life Church, Pastor Kumuyi has warned members of his church to stop Christmas celebration because it is idolatry.

Kumuyi made this known on Friday during the National December Retreat that held along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The popular GO said Christ’s birth should be celebrated everyday and not once a year.

He also condemned how people spend millions of Naira for December 25th celebration. He therefore urged his followers to seek first the Kingdom of God.

Deeper Life Faithfuls will have the option of celebrating Christmas at home this year unlike in the past where they would camp till Boxing Day, December 26.

2013’s retreat started December 19 and ended yesterday, Sunday the 22nd of December.

Do you agree guys, is Christmas celebration idolatry?

    • “Popular myth” also tells us to do what we want in this world and not worry about what God has to say.
      .
      You gonna follow “popular myth” – or God. Because God warns us to not put manmade “tradition” over Him and His Word.

  3. MANY PEOPLE GOING AGAINST THIS STATEMENT ARE JUST DOING IT FOR THE FUN THEY DERIVED DURING THE XMAS PERIOD,IT HAS NOTING TO DO WITH THEIR CHRISTIAN FAITH. WITHOUT KNOWING THE ORIGIN OF XMAS, MANY BELIEVER CELEBRATE BECAUSE THEY MET THE WORLD CELEBRATING IT.
    HAVE YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP WITH XMAS AND FATHER XMAS? REMEMBER, FATHER XMAS GOES WITH MAGIC FLYING CHARIOT WITH DEERS. XMAS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SPIRITUAL LIFE OF A CHRISTIAN. 95% OF THOSE CELEBRATING XMAS, CHRIST HASNT BEEN BORN IN THEIR LIFE.
    ITS A WASTE CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF CHRIST IN THE FLESH WHEN HE HAS NOT BEEN BORN IN YOUR HEART SPIRITUALLY

  4. na wa o…all d Christians with contradictions and confusions shaaa, u better embrace Islam my pple Wia no confusions in the only book (quran).

  5. na wa o…all d Christians with dia contradictions and confusions preaching shaaa, u better embrace Islam my pple Wia no confusions in the only book (quran).

  6. All i know is dat there is a way u would talk about yourself so much dat will mean proudness. And a christian must not be proud. Am nt here to condemn any1

  7. There is no place in the bible that said that christ was born on the 25th of December, the bible chronology suggested that Christ was born around the month of October, christ Himself did not tell his apostles to celebrate his birth rather His death therefore the so called Christains today are been decived by their pastors who is not after the souls of their church members but money, that is why apostle paul said that their god is their stomach.

    I will like any reader of this comment to read his or her bible and find out what was truly done on December 25th, read the book of Jeremiah chapetr 52 vers 31, the Roman empire was aware that there is no place in the bible that give the exact date of the birth of Chirst, they decided to use the release of king Joeakiam from prison in Babylon to replace the day Christ was born,all the misleadings was caused by the leaders of Catholic churches who refused to acknowladged the and respect the laws laid down by Jesus Christ, Pastor Kumiyi, you said Christ should be clebrated everyday, i dont know what you mean, do you mean that the birth of christ should be clebrated everyday?or his death?The bible said that Christ instructed his followers to keep on Remembering his death after he said that a bread and wine represent His body and blood, the confused church leaders do this almost every sunday, but christ told his followers to do this once a year as the date was nissan 14 regards to the jewish calander, please church leaders stop deciving the innocent people, come out and tell them the truth, all of you will give account of their soul at the END.

  8. I jst dnt knw y som of us christians luv wasting time on marginal doctrines & trivialities. Evn if 25th Dec. was initially used 2 worship oda gods, is dat enof 2 tel me 2 move chrismas frm dat d8? A truely mature christian who has grown up in d faith (I dnt mean who was born in2a christian home) knws beta. Didnt Jesus declair himself Lord of evrday? Wat r we sayin here? As long as I celebr8 Jesus, & not any oda god on dat day, I am not guilty of idolatory.
    Ok, since som ppl want 2 b unreasnably sensitiv, let me draw their minds on dis: Sunday, d day dat we christians now go2church, is named afta d sun god. We should stop going 2 church on sundays bcs sundays dont belong 2 God. How abt Monday? Yeah! 2 d moon god. Evn Thursday is2d god of thunder. All diz dayz r named accordn 2 one fetish rule or d oda. Hence let’s worship God only on d 8th day of d week ‘cos none of d 7 we knw 2day belongs 2 Him.

  9. Christ did not born in December, but in October. It is the pagan idolatry worship that force it down to December, to suit their traditional rituals. That is what the man of God mean. So get to know very well, before you swim and lost in rituals.

  10. All this is a sign that the End time has come, Pastor’s preaching against themselves, churches everywhere like busines centre. GOD HELP US SO THAT AT THE END WE SHALL ALL BE WITH U IN PARADISE

  11. pls and pls al does castigatin d man of God shuld b prepard 4 God’s wrath and judgemnt dats y Jesus said ‘father 4gv em’ @chichi and angela repent and gv ur lyf 2 christ and al does slanders. Seek ye first d kingdom of God and hs righteousness and al oda tins ‘wisdom 2 knw God’s wrd wil b gvn 2 u.our prayer shuld b God teach me aw 2 numba my days dat u wil apply it wit wisdom. I wish u al HEAVEN AT LAST.

  12. I have not seen thou shall not celebrate my birthday in the bible,it is true that it has been commercialized but that does not mean it should not be celebrated! I keep telling people churches these days now want to influence and control people,either donate this.. do not share with muslims.. if your tithe is below this God won’t accept.. many many things,i wonder what the CAN is doing concerning these things

    • If you read Jeremiah 10 in the Holy Bible, that will help you to understand why, yes, it is absolutely wrong – according to God -to worship Him as the ancients did their “gods”.
      .
      The Bible also doesn’t say that we shouldn’t ram a QTip into someone ear – so does that mean it’s okay to do?
      .
      God doesn’t stutter in Jeremiah 10 – He warns us (WARNS us) – NOT to partake in that particular festivity. He is clear on the consequences if we do.
      .

  13. @Rebecca,the truth of the matter is that many would proclaim “lord it was with thou name that we sent out demons and delivereth people to you and i will say to them i know you not” why? They replaced God’s teaching and mixed it with their personal opinion

  14. If you guys would actually “read” God’s Word – in Jeremiah 10, He makes it crystal clear how HE feels about the cutting down – and “decking in silver and gold” of trees in the house. Furthermore, He also warns us that those who partake in this pagan worship/idolatry, “shall perish”.
    IF you guys would take some time and do some research into the history of “christ” “mass”, you would learn that Dec. 25 is the birthday of the SUN “god” – not the SON of God. The “sun god” was actually Nimrod – yep, the same Nimrod mentioned in the Bible. See how deceptive satan is – he has us worshiping the “sun god” instead of the SON of God.
    I hear people saying how they aren’t worshiping the tree – well, that may be true – for you – but according to God, yes, you ARE worshiping that tree. The very act of cutting it and decorating it IS worshiping it – to God.
    .
    So bottom line – do we go on what “we” believe and “feel” – or what God says. Choice is ours.
