Corinthians 11:1 Says, "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." Those who do this are "True Christians" and are a rare breed indeed!

One thing I have learned in this crazy game of called LIFE.

Some people like to use their power and cause others sadness and strife.

I have also learned that others are caring, loving and try not to sin.

These people are a very rare breed called "True Christians."

These folks are so special to be around because they really care.

If you need a hand or are down and out they will always be there.

So I see these gangs on the streets and I can’t help to wonder.

Why they can’t count on their friends as much as a Christian brother.

We read that many gang members fight each other over money and power.

This is not true friendship; it’s a relationship turned sour.

So if you wonder why I am a Christian when there are other things I could be.

Well, I been a thief, a liar, and I been a gang member, so that bad boy was me.

I been there and done that and I know who my true friends are today.

They are "True Christians" that show their kindness to others in every way.

So let me introduce you to the best gang of folks you will ever know.

They are a pleasure to be around and you can trust them wherever you go.

Very interesting...I have had many close friends who would be considered gangsters, I've never had a more loyal or caring friend who did not judge me, and while not perfect, they were spiritual. I think it's great to find these people in life, even if the life is not what we deem typical good Christians. Thank you for your inspiration.

A terrific write, John! Count me in as one of the gang. You gave a great perspective on the unity and love believers share. You know when you're in this 'hood--the Son shines brightly!
