Japheth Omojuwa, a popular media figure, has reacted to gospel singer Nathaniel Bassey’s viral “Jesus” trend.
The musician had taken to his Instagram page to invite Christians to use “Jesus” written clearly in red on a white background as their profile photo on their social media profiles.
On Tuesday, May 7, he wrote.
“Can we put this our profile photo on all of your social media accounts at 12 p.m.?” (WAT) in a matter of minutes. Also, share as a story and as a post on your timeline. What are your plans for the rest of the day??? Declare the name into the atmosphere as well! JESUS!
Let the rest of the world know what’s going on.
And we’ll tell them, “JESUS IS ON THE WAY!”
Is it possible?
“Invite others to join!”
Omojuwa, in response to the trend that has now gone widespread across all internet platforms, enquired as to what it is expected to achieve.
He also compared it to fanaticism, claiming that he has witnessed smart and well-informed people do absurd things in the name of religion.
“What exactly is this Jesus doing on a white background with a red marker?” I’d really like to know.
Religious fanaticism is rarely mitigated by exposure or education, even if they are educated.
I’ve seen well-educated and well-traveled parents oppose their children’s marriage to the lover on religious grounds. Even if they are of the same religion, they may belong to separate sects. In the name of religion, I’ve seen educated and exposed individuals do some really strange things.”
