Have you ever doubted God? Do you struggle with how to talk to a God we can’t see and don’t trust? Earl’s story is for you.
This former gang-banger wondered if he’d ever live long enough to know God. Today, Earl is a small business owner. He and his family study scripture in Hebrew.
Meet Earl. Messianic Jew. A man redeemed.
Earl shares his story in a number of places, including The Community Rescue Mission in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Here’s an academic primer on the Los Angeles Crips and Bloods from Stanford University. Interestingly, gangs have been around since the 1920s. The Crips and Bloods are each territorial. To say they don’t much like each other is the proverbial understatement.
Earl mentions Hoover Crips. Here’s a bit more info.
Earl closed our interview with a shema - “an affirmation of God’s singularity.”
