Though the foundation of Christmas is idolatry and God hates idolatry with perfect hatred, we will not throw away the baby
and the bath water. We do not condemn those who celebrate.

Jesus is born in us at MFM every day. His death is our birth certificate.
We will bring out the positive out of the negatives by using all holidays for prayers, conferences seminars, and activities.

We will hold seminars, conventions, camp meetings or special teaching services to pray, examine the scriptures and draw
positives from the wrong, negative and idolatry practices of the two events: Easter and Christmas.

We will hold special meetings to re-teach, re-emphasize and reappraise the significance of Jesus' birth, death, cross, and

Strange but true! Remember those shepherds who were
“keeping watch over their flocks by night”? (Luke 2:8).

December weather around Bethlehem is often miserably cold, wet and rainy. No shepherd in his right mind would have kept
his flocks outside at night at that time of year!

The passage argues against the December 25th birth of Jesus Christ since the weather would not have permitted shepherds
to be out in the fields with their flocks then.

Also, Luke 2:1-4 tells us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem because his parents came to that town to register in a Roman
census. The Romans were well known as highly efficient administrators. It would have made no sense to have conducted a census in the dead of winter when temperatures
often dropped below freezing and traveling was difficult due to poor road conditions.

 Taking a census under such conditions
would have been pointless.

The Bible nowhere tells us to observe a holiday celebrating Jesus Christ’s birth —but it clearly does tell us to do 'communion’ in remembrance of him.
