Deranged evangelical, Howard Conder, inset above, wants buses throughout the UK to display the words of Jesus, and his plan got off to a grand start in London, where 75 vehicles are displaying Jesus quotes until April 24.
According to the Christian Institute, millions of people this Easter will be seeing the quotes “thanks to a new evangelistic campaign” led by Conder, who says in the video below that God gave him a vision to launch the “costly” campaign, and he hopes that it will spread to other parts of the country and “to the ends of the earth”.
Among the quotes are: “Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die”, “I am the way the truth and the life”, and “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”.
Quote Jesus, the name of the Conder’s campaign, says the initiative is about addressing the lack of hope in a disillusioned generation, and about showing millions of people the hope that the Bible offers.
Our vision for this campaign is to influence the hearts, minds and perceptions of this generation, to offer them hope and faith for a better future.
The Bible is a book of hope and this generation is missing out because it has little knowledge of what the Bible has to say.
Support for the campaign has been widespread, with endorsements being received from Christians in America and Australia.
It comes eight years after a controversial atheist bus campaign by the British Humanist Association.
At the time, some buses featured advertisements saying:
There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.
At the time cross-party MPs attacked:
The religiously offensive and morally unhelpful advertisements.
