Six Churches That Do Not Celebrate Christmas

Six Churches That Do Not Celebrate Christmas

*Jevohah’s Witness*

This religious organisation is one of the biggest group of Christmas-shunners. Once upon a time, Jehovah’s Witnesses used to observe Christmas. This was until 1928, after further study by one official. The official found that this is based on“false religious beliefs or activities.” Deseret News reports that this is explained in a 1993 book, “Jehovah’s Witnesses — Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom.”

*Seventh Day Adventist Church*

Like Jehovah’s Witnesses, this church also goes against Christmas.
A publication from them reads: “We do not celebrate Christmas as the Birth of Christ per say since Christ was not born in Dec. “He did not want us to celebrate His birth or He would have told us when He was born. It has become a money-making celebration with Christ mixed in. It is a pagan ritual.

*Deeper Life*
A few years ago, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, the head of the Church announced to the world that his church does not celebrate the popular holiday.
Explaining at the 2013 December retreat, he said: “We don’t celebrate Christmas nor sing Christmas carol; because Christmas is of idolatrous background.” During the Christmas period, they used to be in the camp for their retreat.

*God’s Kingdom Society (GKS)*

GKS believe that there is no single evidence in the Bible that Jesus Christ was born on the 25th of December. Rather, they believe that He was born in October and that Christmas originated from “a noisy pagan festival in honour of the god of the sun”.
The church was started by St. Gideon Meriodere Urhobo in 1934 after leaving Jehovah’s Witnesses with headquarters found in Warri.

*Religious Society of Friends (the Quakers)

This church believes that “every day is a holy day,” so there is no need to single out just one day to celebrate.

*Mountain of Fire Ministries (MFM)*

According to the founder, Pastor D.K. Olukoya, “We don’t celebrate Christmas because the root is demonic.”
