May 16 2008 was earmarked as ‘Jesus Is My Logo’ Day where it is, and I quote
…encouraging Christians to make a bold statement about Christ by supporting Jesus Is My Logo Day.
The recently-launched organisation has earmarked Monday, 19 May for its campaign calling people to wear a Jesus Is My Logo badge wherever they go. Individuals who have profiles on social networking websites like Facebook have been asked to change their profile to a Jesus Is My Logo picture in support of the initiative. Icepix view the one-day declaration as a way of supporting the logo’s movement as well as making a statement to the world.
Icepix, a photography outfit, launched their coloured badges as part of a series of innovative products. The company describe it as their latest edition of ‘cool’ by producing exclusive personalised badges in a range entitled, ‘Say Something!’
Apparently, Britain’s RnB artist Lemar is just one of the many people supporting the Jesus Is My Logo movement.

My view is I really dont see the point of this and think it is a cop out for a lot of Christians and will make them think they are ‘doing their bit for the kingdom’ or evangelising through the logo. Wouldnt it be better that more effort was into telling people the whole gospel whether it be in speech or written for e.g. a tract? I have never even seen any effort or facebook groups etc to say ‘each one tell one’ even for one day (which obviously is not enough). I can bet that there is only a small percentage of those displaying the logos who expound the gospel consistently to other.
I can hear the comments already. “Whats wrong with sowing a seed?” “Someone may get interested and ask questions and get saved”. My view is that those arguments are just pragmatic and the end does not justify the means. I suppose I wouldnt have this view if I knew that a lot of christians evangelised but as Jesus said, the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.
So my question to you all is am I a wet blanket or am I just nit-picking?
