Christmas origin: Pastor Sam Adeyemi shades MFM pastor D.K Olukoya?

Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center appears to have thrown a shade at Dr. D.K Olukoya of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, MFM, over his claims on the origin of Christmas.

Olukoya had disclosed during a sermon to his congregation on December 25th that his church doesn’t celebrate Christmas because it is not biblical and also because of its origin.

The sermon generated controversy as many Nigerians on social media disagreed with the clergyman.

Well, a tweet by Pastor Sam Adeyemi addresses the issue as it states that there are pertinent issues to discuss in Nigeria other than the origin of Christmas.

He tweeted:

“The countries from where they brought Christianity to Nigeria celebrated Christmas with uninterrupted power supply. Some of us were quarelling over whether eating Christmas chicken will make us go to heaven or not. Sense will “fall on us” one day. I pray it won’t be long.

“I heard @AlikoDangote say that Egypt added 10,000 MW of electricity generation in 18 months. Nigeria has hardly added 2000 MW in 20 years despite spending more money. Instead, we have air polution and noise polution from generators, or darkness. Shouldn’t we be discussing this?”
