Jwyan C. Johnson

Biography

Years ago, author and award-winning poet Jwyan C. Johnson wrote the script to a cartoon. The story starts off with a police chase to a giant dictionary: the home of our vocabulary words. Cops break down the cover, and they all rush in with their weapons drawn. And as they move around inside this book, we learn that they’re looking for one specific word: a simple 9-lettered noun. It has been bragging about its countless offenses committed against our society, against mankind. Surprising unarmed, and not dangerous, this specific word simply turns us against each other.

Detectives follow the "alphabetical” directions to the right page, the right column and the right row, only to discover that this word has disappeared! Nowadays this divisive word lives inside our minds if we let it! The accomplished mystery writer reveals that "ignorance” was the word the police were after.

The creative writings of Jwyan C. Johnson aim to biblically "protect and serve” the mind state because "ignorance is still at large in our society!” And with his latest kingdom-seeking contribution, Christian Parables, there are some places where ignorance no longer resides so we can win back each other.

Smashwords Interview

So how did Christian Parables come about?
Quite naturally since imagination, our core element, is an innate thrill for us all. How many boys dribble their basketball to a make-believe shot-clock to win the game? And how many girls even require tea at their tea party? Childhood’s favorite nation is imagination: the “genesis” of intrinsic motivation which grows up right along with us. Soon that same invisible shot-clock will count down a career goal. And that empty tea cup quickly has real Starbucks coffee, with the same social setting. As for imagination itself, it matures into literature aging through bedtime stories, comic books, and mystery novels. My challenge was taking this natural crave to imagine, and blending it with The Good Book! Christian Parables activate the creative, right side of the brain. So this platform, synonymous with escape, now includes a biblical map for our current prodigal sons and daughters. Adding more Word to its words (John 1:1), and scriptures to its script, this graceful gospel-sharing technique came about.
Do you have a favorite parable from Jesus?
Yes! I like the father who gave orders to his two sons (Matthew 21:28-32). One son said okay but didn’t do it. The other son contested, “no,” but later felt guilty and did it. Jesus then asks his audience, “Which one of them did the work of his father?”

I love this parable because it shows the artificial authority of guilt. It is spiritually parallel to God; it has nothing to do with righteousness! And a little more observation reveals even more parallel types of authorities with the audacity to use guilt like a whip. I suggested this though my parable of “The Ventriloquist.”
