Is this too far to be a “living epistle”?

You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men (2 Corinthians 3:2 NKJV)

No, that's not a 70s headband he's rocking

So, we are supposed to be “read of all men.” It’s good because a lifestyle lived in front of people should keep us accountable, transparent and above all, “known” by all men.

Frankly, there is only group of folk known for hanging out in a closet… and Christians should not be it! That said…

Meet Richard Dukes: former car thief, ex-con gone good, jailhouse convert and a man on a mission to prove it.

He was so serious about his new found commitment to Christ that upon release from prison, he didn’t go see his mama, his woman or his homies.

No, Rich here gets nice and mixes in a visit to his neighborhood tattoo parlor to get his Jesus scars on.

That’s right, crucifixion fans.

Rich decides to mimic every scar, down the last thorn prick across his brow, that Jesus experienced en route to Golgotha.

“I’m in the Lord’s gang now,” Dukes says. “These are his colors.”

Represent, brother. I don’t know how you envision finding Missus Dukes at the next church bake sale with all that ink, but at least you have one heavenuva conversation starter.

“So, Richard. Is that a crown of thorns?”

“You like?”

“Well… um… it’s… uh… cute.”

“Yeah?! Maybe if we get to know each other better, I’ll let you check out my back.”

What. Up. Go ahead. Jesus high-five. Oh sorry. Don’t want the ink to run on your hands. Nevermind. Just wave at me.

    Yeah… well… er… uh… I’ll let you tell him that. HAHA!

  2. Vaughn says:

    I’m happy that he is all out for the Lord, but homeboy needs to put his head in the book and try and get the mind of Jesus Christ.

    Looks to me like a zeal,but not according to knowledge!
