Respected cleric and founder of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor W.F Kumuyi has called on his members to stop celebrating Christmas, saying that it is idolatry.
The former university don stated this yesterday at the just concluded 2013 Deeper Life National December Retreat under the theme, Crossing Over to a New Inheritance and Prevailing over Storms of Life at the Deeper Life Conference Centre, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The pastor in a message broadcasted live said the birth of Christ should not only be celebrated just once in year but everyday.
Kumuyi who decried how people squander millions just to celebrate ‘a one-day Christmas’ told his congregation to seek first the kingdom of God, noting that all other things would be added unto them.
Meanwhile, DailyPost observation shows that for the first time in history, members of Deeper Life would be celebrating Christmas at home, unlike in the past where they would camp till Boxing Day, December 26.
This year’s retreat, which started December 19 ended on Sunday, 22.
