    The vision?

    The vision is JESUS – obsessively, dangerously, undeniably Jesus.

    The vision is an army of young people. You see bones? I see an army.

    And they are FREE from materialism.

    They laugh at 9-5 little prisons.

    They could eat caviar on Monday ands crusts on Tuesday.

    They wouldn’t even notice.

    They know the meaning of the matrix, the way the west was won.

    They are mobile like the wind, they belong to the nations.

    They need no passport. People write their addresses in pencil and wonder at their strange existence.

    They are free yet they are slaves of the hurting and dirty and dying.

    What is the vision?

    The vision is holiness that hurts the eyes. It makes children laugh and adults angry. It gave up the game of minimum integrity long ago to reach for the stars. It scorns the good and strains for the best. It is dangerously pure.

    Light flickers from every secret motive, every private conversation.

    It loves people away from suicide leaps, their Satan games.

    This is an army that will lay down its life for the cause.

    A million times a day its soldiers

    Choose to lose

    That they might one day win

    The great ‘Well done’ of faithful sons and daughters.

    Such heroes are as radical on Monday morning as Sunday night. They don’t need fame from names. Instead they grin quietly upwards and hear the crowds chanting again and again: ‘COME ON!’

    And this is the sound of the underground

    The whisper of history on the making

    Foundations shaking

    Revolutionaries dreaming once again

    Mystery is scheming in whispers

    Conspiracy is breathing…

    This is the sound of the underground

    And the army is discipl(in)ed.

    Young people who beat their bodies into submission.

    Every soldier would take a bullet for his comrade at arms.

    The tattoo on their backs boasts ‘For me to live is Christ and to die is gain’.

    Sacrifice fuels the fire of victory in their upward eyes.

    Winners.

    Martyrs.

    Who can stop them?

    Can hormones hold them back?

    Can failure succeed?

    Can fear scare them or death kill them?



    And the generation prays

    Like a dying man

    With groans beyond talking,

    With warriors cries, sulphuric tears and

    With great barrow loads of laughter!

    Waiting. Watching:24-7-365

    Whatever it takes they will give:

    Breaking the rules.

    Shaking mediocrity from its cosy little hide.

    Laying down their rights and their precious little wrongs, laughing at labels, fasting essentials.

    The advertisers cannot mould them.

    Hollywood cannot hold them.

    Peer pressure is powerless to shake their resolve at late night parties before the cockerel cries.

    They are incredibly cool, dangerously attractive inside.

    On the outside? They hardly care.

    They wear clothes to communicate and celebrate but never to hide.

    Would they surrender their image or popularity?

    They would lay down their very lives – swap seats with the man on death row – guilty as hell.

    A throne for an electric chair.

    With blood and sweat and many tears, with sleepless nights and fruitless days, they pray as if it all depends on god and live as if it all depends on them.

    Their DNA chooses JESUS. (He breathes out, they breathe in.)

    Their subconscious sings. They had a blood transfusion with Jesus.

    Their words make demons scream in shopping centres.

    Don’t you hear them coming?

    Herald the weirdo’s!

    Summon the losers and the freaks.

    Here come the frightened and forgotten with fire in their eyes.

    They walk tall and trees applaud, skyscrapers bow, mountains are dwarfed by these children of another dimension.

    Their prayers summon the hounds of heaven and invoke the ancient dream of Eden.

    And this vision will be. It will come to pass; it will come easily; it will come soon.

    How do I know? Because it is the longing of creation itself, the groaning of the spirit, the very dream of God.

    My tomorrow is his today.

    My distant hope is his 3D

    And my feeble, whispered, faithless prayer invokes a thunderous, resounding, bone shaking great ‘Amen!’ from countless angels from heroes of the faith, from Christ himself. And he is the original dreamer, the ultimate winner.

    Guaranteed.

    Just a thought, but how about setting up a UK Christian forum? Might be a nice place for you guys to be able to give up some big god lovin' in. So long as you keep the noise down with those tambourines :p

    yeh could do except dont really know how!! but yeh....guess you lot wouldn't get bombarded with all my christian stuff in the future (although that was part of the plan ;) )

    the writing of the above is great methinks...lots of quotable lines and lots of ideas that aren't definably (?) just christian, some just cooooool, like eating caviar on monday and crusts on tuesday for example...

    love luch x

    That'd be ok with me, but if it's a general religious forum, then christian posts would still be open to intellectual/spiritual criticism. I get the impression that chika and the rest of the god-squad would like to be able to post some jesus-love without the risk of us atheist/pagan/humanist types commenting on it.

    How about a UK spiritual one once we get the personal forums back again... we can discuss beliefs, religeous, opinions.... it would also be good to incorporate meditation, yoga, ritual, magick... everyone can voice thier spiritual opinions without having people jumping down their throats? Because our beliefs and spirituality are a very important to all of us, no matter what anyone says. It would be good to have a place where we can discuss them

    :)

    Yep there is already a Christian Hippies forums for Fellowship more than discussion.

    Personally I like the idea of UK Religious Ideas or something like that.

    I do post in ChristianHippies its a lovely forum, but I practice restraint there as I respect the views of more "fundamentalist" Christians.

    Would love to see a forum here where we could discuss and exchange our views on religion more freely,although I could be setting myself up here for one big long arguement
