Hi, This is Rayford L. Johnson the Author of Thug Mentality Exposed and Founder & Director of ThugExposed.Org. I wanted to share with you why I wrote this book, and also tell you a little about myself.
I’m a former Youth Correctional Counselor of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, where the book takes center stage. I did that for 13 years, working with 18-25 year-old inmates. In this book I will share with you over 70 hard hitting personal stories from these incarcerated individuals. You will hear their raw and honest stories from their own words, from a mixture of gang members, satanists, pimps, drug dealers, honor students and pastor kids.
Thug Mentality Exposed takes the reader to the ancient root of Thug Mentality, traced all the way back to India’s infamous and notorious Thuggee Tribe. Then takes the reader up to date to the current gang, street and drug trends.
In addition to have been a Correctional Counselor and now a Certified Gang Specialist and Life Skills Instructor. I have also been a photojournalist for over 28 years, freelancing for entertainment publication, celebrity award shows and television entertainment outlets such as BET (show photos). In my journalistic investigations, I have uncovered some dark occultic things about the music industry, which I expose in this book. Such as how the entertainment and ad industry uses scientific and occult info and methods to manipulate and change an individuals belief system, without the individual even knowing.
Other topics featured in this 360 page book are; history of the occult, how music can influences behavior and music backmasking, history of drugs, women’s attraction to the pimp mentality, the growing homosexual movement in thug culture and more…
The book also has a life-skills, personal development segment, which has been utilized as curriculum by correctional, drug treatment and youth programs across the country.

First, it deals with the subject in an honest presentation. Second, it hits firmly on the spiritual side of the gang issue, which is a side that many have missed.

The Myth, The Reality and the Question for Parents!
*How many times have we seen TV news broadcasts or read Internet accounts of a young man or young woman who was called: “A good child” by their parents…just as they were arrested for a crime, shot to death by police, or sent to prison by a judge.
*How many times have we seen a young man or a young woman who has raised money for a cause, or done a community service called: “A good child” by those in positions of authority…along WITH their parents?
*How many times have we seen a young man or a young woman in a church called: “A good child” from their Pastor, Deacons, congregation members and their parents?
A child ‘may’ act good on the outside, but NOT truly good in the sight of God BECAUSE they have NOT given their lives to Jesus Christ (Gal 1:4). A child ‘may’ be upright in their local church, clean up their rooms, do well in school, perform good ‘community work’, and even be well thought of in their city (Eph 4:18; Rom 1:21). However, if they DO NOT have a relationship WITH God through Jesus Christ, they are on their way to a REAL Hell, and God regards them as Sinners (Rom 6:17, Rom 6:20; Joh 8:34)!
Children, as babies, look cute and cuddly. However, they are the offspring of Adam, and are born with a fallen nature. What is the proof? Consider this: One does NOT have to teach a child how to be selfish, or cruel, or to lie, cheat or steal. Because of their being born in sin (sin means ‘falling short’ of the righteousness of God Eph. 2:2, 3, 12) these traits come in their bodily package. Unless they become ‘born again’ (Col. 1:12-14), they may ‘grow’ physically, but will be stuck in the position of having their backs against God by not surrendering their lives to Jesus Christ and getting His righteousness applied to their lives (Eph. 2:8-10).
The question that every parent should ask themselves about EACH of their children is this: “Do I care more about how my child LOOKS on the outside BEFORE the world, OR is my child READY to face eternity?” Tomorrow is NOT promised (Heb. 9:27; Jas. 4:14)! A better question they should ask themselves is this: “Since I am their parent, what steps have I taken to make SURE that my children are Christians and NOT just ‘church goers’ or ‘church members’(1 Cor. 1:18; 2 Cor. 2:15; Luk 13:3, Luk 13:5)?”
‘Saying’ that your child is: ‘A good child’ may be good to impress your family, friends and community. It may be a good thing to do before the media, the police, and the funeral director…but it does NOT impress God (2 Pet. 3:5)! In the end, Jesus Christ will be the standard by which you–and your children–will spend eternity in Heaven, or in Hell (1 Thess. 4:5). Pray DAILY that your children become Christians, live the Christian life and grow in their knowledge, love and devotion to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
I’d also like to thank the folks at PreservedWords.com for their inspritation in this writting.

THE FORGOTTEN KEY TO VICTORY OVER GANGS
Gang leaders don’t like to lose members to local churches. They will ‘tolerate’ members ‘looking at’ religion and the church as a good ‘exit’ strategy, or as a good means of looking legitimate. Churches that want to make a true dent in Modern Street Gangs need to add a forgotten key–the key of discipleship. To put it bluntly, a church MUST show gang members the way out of gang life TO Jesus Christ AND how to STAY in Christ.
Don’t be fooled. Just because a person ‘comes forward’ at an altar call after the preaching of salvation doesn’t mean that they ‘get the full message’. Remember, some of those coming forward have been exposed to bible terms, but with different definitions. Pastors and altar warriors need to make sure that converts ‘know that they know’ Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and can publicly state why they believe in Him.
Ex-gang members will have to clearly be shown what they came out of and what they were (Sinners); plus, what they are now and where they are now (Saints) based upon what the Scriptures say! This process is crucial! Many gangs use the KJV in the wrong ways to ‘support’ their sin. There needs to be a clear discipleship process with God’s Word, as well as people to keep tabs and contact with this new lamb.
Next, the convert should be ‘pared up’ with someone of the same sex that has been a Christian for more than a few years, and can ‘come along side’ them to answer their questions; show them some friendship, and–if needed–be that ‘middle of the night contact’ if they have questions about the faith.
Last but not least, the church where the ex-member has joined NEEDS to have a regular, weekly meeting to teach new converts and new members–from the KJV Bible–what God expects of them, how to live this new life in Christ, and how to grow in Christ. I’ve seen far too many cases where churches ‘dance a jig’ over getting a new member, but won’t take the time to keep up with that member after the service is over!
Real, genuine discipleship is that forgotten key to victory over sin!

This is a Powerful Video by the Vigilant Christian, very insightful!!! There is a conspiracy in our entertainment industry to shape our minds to accept the coming Mark of the Beast-666″. This is prophetic, please watch:
“Once again Hellywood has misrepresented in the worst ways one of the most powerful stories in mankind’s history! In this video we look at how Hellywood attacked God by making a movie about the exodus! Please share this video and PRAY !!! God Bless and STAY VIGILANT !!!”
STILL HAVE TO TRAIN YOUR OWN CHILD!
On the subject of getting children to mind their parents, I remember a past comment from Pastor John Hagee: “If THEY can train a dolphin to bounce a basketball on its nose at Sea World, YOU–parents–can train your child to do their chores and show proper respect to you in your own home.”
I’ve been noticing over the past few years that the video gadgets are getting smaller and smaller, and the kids using them are getting younger and younger. Parents these days have gotten used to the ‘peace and quiet’ of turning their kids over to an electronic device much the same way that their grandparents used to plop them down in front of a TV set, back in the day. The only difference is that their parents USED to take the time to turn off ‘the boob tube’ and teach them the REAL lessons of life.
Much the same thing has also been taking place in our churches. A parent–IF they can get their child or teen to attend church–still drags along their electronic ‘gear’ to get them to sit still during the service. Of course, the child can only ‘focus’ on the video screen, and not the Word of God.
Who is ultimately responsible for ‘training up’ of a child? The KJV Bible says that this is the responsibility of the p-a-r-e-n-t! Not the Pastor; not the Sunday School teacher, but the p-a-r-e-n-t! YOU, dear parent are responsible for teaching YOUR child about the Word of God, the doctrine of the Bible, prayer and the need for understanding the catechisms of the Christian faith. There are going to be a LOT of broken hearted church members (notice I didn’t say Christians) who are going to find out when their child gets older that they will LEAVE the church and NEVER return. Why? Because Mama, Daddy or both found the time to ‘give’ them things, instead of ‘teach’ them Bible.
I would challenge EVERY Christian parent to spend some time in the Book of Proverbs. See how King Solomon, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote about the needs of youth, the gravitation towards sin, and the dangers of the streets and the criminal element. That is covered in the FIRST chapter. I would urge any parent to spend a month in Proverbs, roll up their sleeves, and DAILY start passing the wisdom on to their own kids. IF a parent can spend several hundred dollars on a device to ‘stunt’ the mental growth of a child through electronic means, they can spend an hour or two teaching that same child about God’s word…and making their mental faculties grow in tune with our Lord. It is always about priorities and choices. Time for parents to make some wise ones…themselves.
