‘Celibacy is the most unpopular of the Christian values’- C.S. Lewis
Celibacy’s now a delicacy, that can only to be enjoyed by those who see, that sex is for marriage, not justa baby carriage; beats liven in ya mum ma’s garage – Ryan Lane 2012
The words “Jesus Freak” were first coined in the late sixties, when hippies became part of a new revival, the Jesus Movement. It was a time when music, poetry and an open expression for Jesus Christ turned a new generation on to God. It merged rock and roll with the Gospel message, a wave we’re still riding today known as contemporary Christian Music.
It infused the Church with the arts. It shook up conventional worship. And, due to it’s “in your face” approach, it had a backlash. The rest of the world called over-zealous young people “Jesus Freaks” as a derogatory term. But decades later a new generation is embracing the same passion for expression.
Being a Jesus Freak is having a passionate heart for Jesus, a willingness to extend that passion into all areas of life, be it poetry, music, art, or the hard choices made at life’s crossroads.
The lineage of Jesus Freaks actually extends much further back into history than the sixties.
Many devoted followers through the centuries gave a new definition to the word “commitment” when they put their homes, their families, and even their lives on the line. Their love for Jesus was bigger than life itself. When I read their stories, I can’t help but think of my own choices, my own commitments, and how much I owe to those courageous individuals.
Jesus Freaks are more than hippie kids and rock and roll. They are the dedicated followers of Jesus Christ who place His name above any other need or desire. And as a Jesus Freak, I stand with thousands of martyrs around the world who still face persecution because Jesus means more to them than their own lives or comfort.

”How many vulnerable, young couples ‘fall in love with love’ on the first date-and lock themselves into marriage before the natural swing of their emotions has even progressed through the first dip?” Dr James Dobson.
Maybe my beliefs are all illusion
Created by my mind just for a crutch
Doubt creeps in to make it’s reintrusion
And sweeps away the faith I need so much
If you wanna kiss the sky
Better learn how to kneel

(Unknown Author) Death isn’t the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside of us while we live
(Unknown Autor) The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today… is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is simply what an unbelieving world finds unbelievable.
