Christmas: Jesus Christ won’t have been born if preparations depended on Nigeria - Cleric (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Vice-Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State chapter, Rev. Dr. Chris Annger, has said that if the birth of Jesus Christ was dependent on human preparation in 2020, that Christ would not have been born.

He said the year had been fraught with challenges but God has kept his people safe.

He explained, “This year, it is quite a challenging year but thank God that our Saviour has been born.

He has done the work of salvation for us and we are just commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ and there is no set down rules as to how to celebrate the birth of Jesus.”

Speaking to DAILY POST in Kaduna on the Christmas festivities, he noted that many homes could hardly provide for their children not to talk of preparing for Christmas celebrations.

He enjoined Christians not to overstretch themselves with buying new clothes and food that they can not afford, thereby putting themselves in a difficult situation.

According to him, Christians cannot change the birth of Jesus Christ or who Jesus is with material things.

He enjoined Christians to go spiritual, direct themselves and give thanks to God Almighty by living lives that glorify the name of the Lord.

He noted that no matter the rising prices of essential commodities, nothing can change the importance of the birth of Jesus Christ, adding, “Whether we live without food on that day, or we have food to eat, we should thank God because God has done the work of salvation for man through the birth of Jesus.”

Rev. Dr. Chris Annger, who is also the chaplain of NKST Church, otherwise known as Universal Reformed Christian Church, Kaduna, described Nigeria as a dead car moving by itself on the hillside without control.

He enjoined the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to do the needful by providing a conducive environment for Nigerians to go out and look for their daily bread.

He called on the President to listen to the voice of reasoning by all stakeholders and effect the change of the service chiefs, so as to bring in new ideas that could tackle the security challenges bedevilling the corporate existence of the country.

Rev. Dr. Annger lamented that insecurity has become the order of the day. “It is either killing, kidnapping, abduction, farmers/herders clash or all manner of social vices that are not mentioned in an ideal society.
