This is a phrase which i believe should be explained in this song, which was written by dcTalk and is from the album "Jesus Freak" that sold platinum in 1995:

Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced

I saw a man with tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said
Cause I had to match the rhythm
Of his belly with my head
'Jesus Saves' is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And claimed he had a dream


(chorus)
What will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it's true
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain't no disguising the truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain
I've been marked by my Maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek

There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn't too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak

(repeat chorus 2x)

People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger

(repeat chorus 2x)

What will people think
(What will people think)
What will people do
(What will people do)
I don't really care
(What else can I say)
There ain't no disguising the truth
(Jesus is the way)
Yeah, i'm 16, a Christian and i'm not scared of being treated like crap because of my faith. Oh, and i'm not American or fundamentalist.

n. Someone who displays an unusual or embarrasing amount of enthusiasm for Jesus.

This term was first used in the 1960's in reference to the growing movement of radical, unconventional Christians who often displayed hippie leanings.
Hey, David, if you dance around like that, people are going to start thinking you're some kind of Jesus freak.

Someone who persists in talking about the importance of Jesus in their life and the world to the point of being rude.
Oh no, the Jesus Freak is spouting off again.

A self-professed Christian who labors under the mistaken impression that Christians are persecuted in this country, and that he or she is commonly persecuted for his or her beliefs. These people usually attempt to convert everyone they know or meet to their own denomination of "born again" Christianity, thereby alienating a number of non-Christians as well as Christians of denominations not of their own, then attribute their subsequent shunning by society to a fictitious, widespread anti-Christian mania.
Josh: "Hi, my name is Josh, and I'm a Jesus freak."
Tim "Hi, my name is Tim, and I'm Jewish."
Josh: "You need the love of Jesus in your life! Repent! You're going to hell!"
Tim: *walks away*
Josh: "Why do you hate me? Why must I be persecuted?!"

A person who supports and believes in Christianity, often to the degree where it's overwhelming, irritating, and even creepy. Some pass out pamphlets promoting God or Christ, plead with you to come to church, and sport stickers or T-shirts promoting their God, whom they've never seen physical proof of. Sometimes they'll even try to force their beliefs on you, so if you're an atheist, beware.
Jesus freak: "Come to church, it won't hurt. Jesus loves you. He died for your sins."

Person: "Well, have you actually seen Jesus or God?"

Jesus freak: "Um, no, but he talks to me in my dreams."

Person: "Uhh... yeah. Piss off, you creep."

People of the Christian faith who become fanatical in their beliefs, eventually driving away friends with different religions, sexual preferences, ect. Note that not all Christians are like this.

While these people aren't "Bad" people,they are usually intolerant to others religious beliefs. They tend to tell those of other religion that they are going to Hell and that they need to convert to Christianity. These can also be those who preach about their respective denominations. There is also a possibility that they could be homophobic.
Jane: Hey are you a Christian
Joe: No, sorry. I'm a very devout Jew.
Jane: *gasp* OMG! We must save your soul! You must convert, lest you go to Hell!
Joe: Oh man, your a Jesus freak!
