 [revival] "TO the YOUTH of AMERICA"

[b]"TO the YOUTH of AMERICA" [/b]
-Andrew Strom.

I write this as a musician and a radical. Christian Youth of America,
your generation is dying, and I need to ask if you are EXTREME
enough to provide the answers. We know there never was anyone
more "Extreme" than Jesus. But what about you?

Christian Youth, I need to ask why you sit in the padded pews of
your fathers while all around the darkness takes your cities and your

I need to ask why you worship the great god of Entertainment, just
like your parents before you - but a bit 'louder' - and think that is

I need to ask why you think it is "extreme" to slam and mosh, when
all the while the devil owns your streets, and fat Record Companies
line their pockets with your cash.

I need to know why you have allowed the system to make you a
slave - a "consumer" - a clone. I need to know why you can be
sucked into buying $150 shoes and $200 sunglasses - while
30,000 children die of starvation every day.

I need to know why you will not cry out to the rich money-preachers
"REPENT". I need to know why you still enjoy it when they tickle
your ears and never speak of Hell. I need to know why you accept
it when their gospel sounds like a toothpaste commercial - all slick
and no substance. Well-dressed drones with plastic smiles, selling
you the latest line in snake-oil. WHEN WILL YOU WEEP?

I look at your piercings and your tattoos and your hair and I still
have to tell you: You are nowhere near EXTREME ENOUGH. The
outward appearance will not do.

The time is coming when an army of young warriors will hit the
streets - fearless and bold beyond anything we have ever seen.
Even death itself will hold no fear. They will cry to the church
"REPENT" and to the comfortable, "SELL what you have and GIVE
TO THE POOR". They will be hated and despised by religious
authorities. They will openly decry the TV preachers and eschew
the watered-down pap that passes for 'gospel' in our day. They will
reject sin and love people - even the homeless and the very least.
Utterly pure of heart, they will befriend the prostitutes and the gang
bangers. They will look and sound just like Jesus.

With great daring and ruthless aggression, this army will make war
on the devil and the darkness. Their music will be hymns of battle.
Their sound will ROAR over the crowd. Truly these shall be the
'Sons of Thunder'.

Christian Youth of America, can you not hear the call of God in this
hour? All heaven awaits the moment when you will arise and ACT
on behalf of your generation.

To the Christian Youth of America I say:

It is time to get "EXTREME".

God bless you all.

-Andrew Strom.

 Re: [revival] "TO the YOUTH of AMERICA"

Oh for a generation of young people that seek after holiness, simple dress, simple lifestyles, taking radical steps to spread the gospel, Oh for a disciplined revolutionary group of youth that will go all out for Christ. Not just to die for Christ but to live for Him! And if necessary die!

God raise up your remenant that will bring the pure gospel to our world.

may the gospel message become a threat to this world system.
