The Jesus People

"This episode of five minutes in Church history. Let's just go back into the recent past about fifty years ago or so. So and the founding of the Jesus people are sometimes called the Jesus Movement or sometimes called Jesus freaks these folks began in nineteen sixty eight in California. This was the era of the Hippie. These hippies descended upon southern California and some churches there and some Christians there decided they would reach out out to these hippies and bring them to Christ and so we have the beginning of the Jesus Movement in Nineteen. seventy-one Billy Graham. I'm was invited to be the Grand Marshal of the Rose Parade and as he sat in his float and it made its way down towards the Rose Bowl. He noticed that the streets were lined with literally hundreds of these long haired youth holding up one finger. Their Index Finger pointed to heaven with the one way sign and and that was the sign of the Jesus people. This caught Billy Graham's attention and he wrote a book called the Jesus generation that year went through many printings and sold well over a half half a million copies and put the Jesus people on the map of the media and on the map of the American church. Well what can we make of this phenomenon of the Jesus people well I we have to see that. They had a huge impact on American evangelicalism. They both reflected trends in American evangelicalism. Awesome and they also set some new trends. They tended to be very pentecostal. They focused very much on signs and wonders. And they were fixated on these supernatural super-natural experiences that they had an would share with each other. Secondly they totally changed the look of the church. These are not folks wearing suits and sitting in pews. These were tank top short flip flop wearing kids. Who would sit cross legged on the floor? But it wasn't always how they looked it was is also how they approached Church found this fascinating article from December. Twenty five nine thousand nine hundred seventy one in the San Bernardino County Sun Sun the newspaper for Hollywood and the article reads Pat Boone's home swimming pool used for baptisms Beverly Everley Hills California. It was actually picked up by the and the first sentence says in the swimming pool behind his magnificent home in posh Beverly Hills Pat Boone. Baptises the repentance. The article goes on to talk about within about six months time. Well over two hundred and fifty baptisms took place in Pat Boone's swimming pool and number of those baptisms were of musicians and that takes us to another significant impact of the Jesus people well. It was really here that we have the birth of what we call. CCM Christian contemporary music or the birth of Christian rock. Those early Pioneers and Christian Rock. We're Randy Stone Hill. And Larry Norman in fact it was. Larry Norman who published the song or wrote the song. Why should the devil have all the good music? Even even some secular artists got in on the mix. Paul stookey of Peter. Paul and Mary produced his Christian albums in the same era. This was the time. We're calvary chapel. Founded founded Maranatha in the Mirror Anathema label and that launched the praise and worship and course phenomenon. There's so much a part of American evangelicalism today. It all started there in one thousand nine hundred seventy among the Jesus people will lastly as we talk about the Jesus people what we see as they were very much less counter cultural and more within culture this was is true not only of music but of all forms of the arts and a forms how they approach the church. It was the Jesus people who launched not not only Christian music they really launched the Christian bookstore industry of the nineteen seventies and they launched so much that happened in the nineteen eighties with jackals locals getting involved in politics. Well what happened to the Jesus people. They SORTA faded in the one thousand nine hundred eighty S. I had a church history professor. who used to say what happened to them? While they all cut their hair started families and became insurance salesman. Well who knows but we do know that they left quite an impact on the American scene on the American aircon. Church in on American evangelicals. Well that's the Jesus. I'm Steve Nicol. Thanks for listening

"Of partnering with the united states and you get something like an israel an enormously successful country there's there's really interesting article actually in the economist today that makes the point that the israel's one tenth the size of iran they have roughly the same gdp and in terms of foreign investment three and change billion went into iran last year twelve and change went into israel so the the attractions of those two countries i think are really neatly summed up by those kind of funny because i never visited israel until the middle of february so a couple of months ago and i was astounded to hear so much about the technology is that these these technology companies they're all in israel and i thought this is just it's fascinating i was talking to a an ano engineer from rice university james tour talking about working with some israeli companies i thought my goodness this is it is extraordinary the money that's going into investment in companies in israel and i think obviously this ability the security i mean i i don't know why anybody would want to do business with iran or or any of these other nations but i do you really think though that it's possible that anybody i mean who who would we want to send the message to iran that we think might be rational enough to you know to play nice no i think i think the iranian regime is never going to change its spots but one thing we've seen in the last four or five months is a real shift in the iranian people i think they see what should have come out of the iran deal they know right money right was given right but it certainly didn't go to them and it's gone for this morning and they have a much more recent history of how can i put it a western style a government and culture and i think many people i can remember that when you're talking about iraq and so on it's not that way so that's my next question when we come back from the break oh and ask you whether the rainy and people will rise up and do something or if that's going to happen or could happen we'll be right back metaxas show here's a little larry norman for you rock moving have.

"I'm when i was reading some of this the reason i was laughing is that he you have larry norman doing these concerts and you write larry norman concert the content was designed to make you uncomfortable yes and i'm like laughing at that because it's kind of like he he reminds me in a weird way of indie calvin like he's playing with his audience his head he's provoking them he he's not mean it it just like this is not what you normally expect when you've got somebody on the stage you figure they're going to deliver entertainment there but he says no no no this is something jesus is an entertainment he's right he says jesus not entertainment so what i'm doing is meant to point to god not to me and it it gets weird yeah so i i opened up the book actually talking about a feature a staple of larry norman concert where originally if he went into a setting that was may be run by a ministry or not like you know he played at the hollywood palladium and you know the sydney opera house but he also played in church ministry venues too and he's to fight with the sound man because his guitar volume was never at the same level as his mike vocal because you know a lot of people think well the message is what really matters we just need to hear him sing it doesn't matter what the guitar sounds like but he's a musician he wants it to sound like rock and roll so used to argue with the sound man now it was usually the case that the mike level for his guitar was not right but the reason why larry would bring the concert to a grinding halt was to make people sit up in their seat and fidget this you know and make them like pay attention like you know the feeling like at a high school football game like is a fight gonna break out basically it makes you pay attention really reminds me of is david cassidy's last concert.

"Okay what renders christian that the guy or the woman playing it is is a christian or that the lyrics are well for an outsider you sure hit the nail on the head because this has been the problem all along in defining what this music is and i've made the case in previous books in this book that there really is no such thing as christian music music is music is music and whatever you choose to sing about animates it but the reason this whole thing started was there were a number of artists who were very very devout christians in the late sixties early seventies and they felt they weren't getting a fair shake in the mainstream music business they weren't getting signed when they would get signed there was a lot of pressure on them to secularize their songs and they didn't want a secularize their songs i particular larry norman is sort of thought of as the founder of christian rock he signed to capitol records and immediately they began to pressure him to tone it down and so really as a result of that they decided well let's go to a christian rock industry and we'll just have our own parallel cultural universe and that's part of what the book is about after thirty forty years of that but it taking place off of the cultural grid a lot of these artists have left a christian music and gone mainstream and that's what's happening recently that's what the book is about so why did you say that you you know music and music is music i mean i mean clearly if the music is christ centered it's christian music well first of all we don't do that to every other group right we don't call a band that loves anton satan or satanic rock we don't call if if the ban happens you made up of gay members and they wanna sing about their orientation we don't call that gay rock so rarely we've only created for this one group of people and but.

"Okay what renders it christian that the guy or the woman playing it is is a christian or that the lyrics are well for an outsider you sure hit the nail on the head because this has been the problem all along in defining what this music is and i've made the case in previous books in this book that there really is no such thing as christian music music is music is music and whatever you choose to sing about animates it but the reason this whole thing started was there were a number of artists who were very very devout christians in the late sixties early seventies and they felt they weren't getting a fair shake in the mainstream music business they weren't getting signed when they would get signed there was a lot of pressure on them to secularise their songs and they didn't want a secularized or songs i in particular larry norman is sort of thought of as the founder of christian rock he signed the capitol records and immediately began to pressure him to tone it down and so really as a result of that they decided well let's go for a christian rock industry and we'll just have our own parallel cultural universe and that's part of what the book is about but after thirty forty years of that but it taking place off of the cultural grid a lot of these artists have left christian music and gone mainstream and that's what's happening recently that's what the book is about so why did you say that you you know music and music is music i mean i mean clearly if the music is christ centered it's christian music well first of all we don't do that to every other group right we don't call a band that loves antonova satan or satanic rock we don't call if if the ban happens to native of gay members and they wanna sing about their orientation we don't call that gay rock so really we've only credit for this one group of people and but.
