Christmas Without Jesus Christhttp://www.vanguardngr.com/2014/12/christmas-without-jesus-christ/ http://www.vanguardngr.com/2014/12/christmas-without-jesus-christ/#comments Sun, 21 Dec 2014 04:27:56 +0000 http://www.vanguardngr.com/?p=479636 Have you noticed that under certain circumstances it is necessary to be a Christian? Many people may not go to church all year but on Christmas day we feel the need to do so. We might not have gone to church for five years, but when we want to get married we feel it is necessary to do so in a church. We may not have been going to church at all but now that we have a baby, we need a pastor to officiate at the naming ceremony and baptise the baby.
