Jesus Was Nazarene, Had Long Hair

Famous Nigerian clergyman and relationship coach, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo, expressed his strong feelings about believers wearing dreadlocks, tattoos, and other unconventional clothing.

He argued that many Christians who condemn others based on their appearance are uninformed because many of the same things were done by Jesus.

He made this known in a series of tweet on his X handled.

He wrote,

“Some Christians still think dreadlocks is unholy and skin cut is holy, they don’t know Jesus was a Nazarine and likely had long hair

Some think skirt is holy for women and trousers are evil and for men they are good, they don’t know that Jesus was Jewish and probably wore gownlike garments

Should I talk about tattoos, lipstick, “prosperity message”, music and other things that make religious people angry??

Anyway let’s major on the majors and not on the minors and stop the religious police work that no one appointed you to do.”

The question is, by what spirit does one operate with when they choose attires and hairdos etc? I rest my case”

@adodo98670643 said: “This is an easy gospel which will lead this untoward generation nowhere. This is not the kind of gospel that got you and your wife saved. I have read your story and listened to you a couple of times. Jesus was a Nazarine with natural hair, not the kind plaited in a beauty salon.”

@harrydaniyan commented: “I agree with you on this: too many “God Police” in our Churches these days. I have tattoos, apparently, they anger a lot of people. For as many as come to tell me it’s WRONG to have them, I respond with “Ok”. If my tattoos anger YOU, that’s YOUR problem, not MINE.😎✌🏾”
