'President Buhari Misquoted The Holy Bible on Christmas' - By Reno Omokri

Read Reno's article below...
Who writes President Buhari’s
statements? His spokesman is a
pastor like me, yet he ignorantly
released the President’s Christmas
message which said inter alia that:
“The Holy Book describes Christmas
as a festival of peace, joy, healing,
hope and fulfilment.“
The statement above is a fallacy.
The Holy Bible does not mention
the word Christmas, neither does it
mention that Christians should
mark any festival surrounding the
birth of Jesus the Messiah (Nabi
Isa in Islam).
Christmas is a European holiday,
not a Christian holiday.
It is celebrated in Nigeria and much
of the world, for the simple reason
that it was Europeans that brought
modern day Christianity to Nigeria,
Africa and much of the world.
I have read the Holy Books of
Judaism, Christianity and Islam and
while all of them acknowledge the
Messiah, NONE of them instructs
believers to celebrate Christmas or
the birth of Christ.
In fact, God deliberately made sure
we do not celebrate the birth of His
only begotten Son, Yeshu’a (Jesus)
by keeping the actual date of His
birth from us.
No one on earth knows the date of
the Messiah’s birth.
What the Holy Bible, and Jesus
specifically, asks Christians to
celebrate is the death of our Lord.
In Luke 22:19 Jesus says:
“And he took bread, gave thanks
and broke it, and gave it to them,
saying, "This is my body given for
you; do this in remembrance of me."
Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 11:26
reechoes the Messiah’s instruction
when he said:
“For whenever you eat this bread
and drink this cup, you proclaim the
Lord's death until he comes.”
The reason Jesus asked us to mark
His death and not His birth goes all
the way back to Solomon (Suleiman
in Islam) who said in Ecclesiastes
7:1 that:
“A good name is better than fine
perfume, and the day of death better
than the day of birth.”
The very last thing Jesus said
before ascending to heaven is in
Matthew 28:18-20, where He said:
“All authority in heaven and on
earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of
all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, and
TEACHING THEM TO OBEY
EVERYTHING I HAVE COMMANDED
YOU. And surely I am with you
always, to the very end of the age.”
These words are called The Great
Commission in Christianity.
Jesus asked us to teach only those
things He commanded us to teach.
Where did He command us to teach
Christmas?
As a matter of fact, Christmas was
not celebrated for 336 years after
Jesus left the earth.
The first Christmas celebration was
in the year 336 AD when the Roman
Emperor, Constantine, converted the
celebration of a pagan mass to
mark the winter solstice which
glorified European deities. That
festival was marked on December
25.
Do not take my word for it. I urge
you, in fact I appeal to you to
investigate these statements I just
made.
That Christmas has become part of
the Christian tradition does not
mean that it has become acceptable
with God.
You and I know that Jesus
condemned the Pharisees. Now ask
yourself why Jesus condemned
them?
Matthew 15:9 gives us the answer:
“But in vain they do worship me,
teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.”
I have already factually established
that Christmas IS NOT Christian
doctrine. It is a command of a man.
To be precise, the name of that man
was Emperor Constantine who
ordered everyone in the Roman
Empire to celebrate the Winter
Solstice as Christmas beginning
from 336 AD.
This is the epitome of satanism
because The Bible warns us in 2
Corinthians 11:14 that:
“for Satan himself masquerades as
an angel of light.”
If satan asks any true Christian to
celebrate a pagan satanic ritual
festival, they will never do it. So he
just transformed a satanic ritual
festival by giving it a new name-
Christmas and voila, Christians
begin to celebrate what Jesus did
not command us to celebrate.
Christmas is an abomination and a
blasphemous festival and the Bible
warned us about it in 1 Timothy 4:1
that:
“The Spirit clearly says that in later
times some will abandon the faith
and follow deceiving spirits and
things taught by demons.”
Let me ask you a question. If Jesus
and the Bible don’t teach Christmas,
from where and who does it come
from?
After reading this and you want to
disagree with me, please quote the
biblical verses that support your
argument and not what your pastor
or a book other than the Bible says.
Christians are the most gullible
people. Today’s churches will
celebrate anything as long as it is
popular. Churches of this age even
celebrate Halloween. Yes,
Halloween. They attempt to
Christianize it, but they celebrate it
none the less.
But before I stray too far from my
message, let me just state it for the
record that President Muhammadu
Buhari is wrong on Christmas. But I
don’t blame him. I blame Femi
Adesina who obviously read (and
perhaps wrote) that statement.
The President can celebrate
Christmas. Try as my conscience
would, I could not persuade
President Jonathan not to celebrate
Christmas. It would have been
political suicide. However, let no
President lie against the Holy Spirit
and say that “The Holy Book
describes Christmas as a festival of
peace, joy, healing, hope and
fulfilment.“
Like Orubebe, ‘we will not take it, we
will not allow it.’ The Holy Books
say no such thing!
