Japheth Omjuwa, a media celebrity, has reacted to gospel musician Nathaniel Bassey’s “Jesus” craze.
The gospel artist used his social media sites to persuade Christians to change their profile photos to “Jesus with red marker on white backdrop.” According to Bassey,
Can we make this our profile picture at 12 noon on all your social media handles? (WAT) in a few minutes Time. And also share as a post on your timeline and as your story. And for the rest of the day ??? And also declare that name into the atmosphere ! JESUS!
Let the world ask what is going on.
And we’ll tell them – JESUS IS GOING ON !
Can we do this?

“9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Let’s release this fragrance over our land and nation. And the nations of the earth.
Omojuwa reacted to the trend by asking what it would achieve. “Religious extremism is scarcely mitigated by exposure or knowledge,” he added.
The television personality went on to say that he has witnessed well-educated and well-informed people perform absurd things in the name of religion.
Even if you educate people, religious fanaticism is hardly moderated by exposure or education.
What is this Jesus with red marker on white background meant to achieve exactly? I really would love to know.
I have seen well educated and exposed people refuse their children marriage to the lover on account of religion. At times, even of the same religion but different sect. I have seen educated and exposed people do very funny things in the name of religion.
