MISSION STATEMENT


 

My intention is to plant the Seed of Righteousness through fictitious adventures; as they may include real life situations, while referenced with scripture from the Holy Bible.

Troy Johnson

PURPOSE


Let it be known that I am not an authority nor have obtained any religious ordinance that is sanctioned by man; to beguile those who teeter on the fence of righteousness. As a believer, it is a responsibility ordered by God to direct to all who seemingly are faithless and misguided. So, not to be a religious fanatic or tunnel vision-ed Christian, but yet striving to be a Disciple, it is my duty to minister the Gospel of Christ. So, in contradiction to a contrite spirit and reaching out to those who refrain from establishing a relationship with God; I will not sugarcoat any venues I’ve chosen to aid in your salvation. The use of profanity, obscenities, sexual content and violence may offend some, but understand this: this is the world we’ve created. Let us not take a blind eye to what is present in our daily lives. In other words, let’s keep it real. See if you can identify the realism by associating with each character, association, situations or complexities that may be presented. Based on your findings, you may be able to manifest some of your own issues and solve them from a spiritual perspective. After all you have ‘Free Will’ thanks be to God, the choice is yours. With that being said, let us look to a higher power for answers and, together watch weight lifted while we no longer sit back and watch the evil that men do.

Synopsis

WHEN BROOKLYN WAS BLACK

In this urban drama blameless boys become tainted men. Men of division with a scornful prudence that demand respect, money and power; and if you failed you paid for it with your life.  Sadly to say straight laced girls are forced to yield to disheartening experiences that cost them more than what they were ready to forfeit. Regretfully they used what was necessary to get them through the day. To add to the grief sprinkled on top like Angel dust, cocaine and heroin kept our parents numb and dumb. This allowed us to make our own way, our own money and our own rules. This was the time when small time Hustlers became more than what they bargained for, and the life they lived consumed their souls of which there were no return. It wasn’t until we got older the things that was immoral damaged our hearts and corrupted the passion that released the dark side.

 This is the story of ghetto boys growing up in the Projects of Brownsville, Brooklyn, a place where the goings gets tough and kind hearts became callous. Once highly populated playgrounds are now marked as war zones for gangs to bop or initiate new involuntary recruits. Despite this stain let us look on the bright side. Close knit communities were tight as villages; and back in the day they use to say, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Each block was like one big happy family, and if you dare violated your welcome you got dealt with. We looked out after one another which gave some the sense of family that they might not have had. So we trained hard by slap boxing which made us nice with our hands that build our confidence and our rep. Brownsville: Never ran. Never will! If you didn’t know ask Iron Mike Tyson, he was from around the way. Shit! He was chipping niggas up on a regular. It was because of our rep most of the time that kept us out of trouble until we crossed the line testing new waters as if we were grown ass men. And when we did; we found ourselves caught up in the game and before we realized it we fell victim to the evil that had set us up from the start. We never saw it coming!

In retaliation, fully aware of the Redeemer’s quest; Antagonist, (Belial, aka Satan) welcomes the challenge by unveiling his powers to destroy the Material World via the unleashing of his Army of Demons causing the beginning of the Apocalypse and the final battle: Armageddon. It’s a requiem of our FAITH, Good vs. Evil and Heaven vs. Hell.
