GANGS Getting Back to God
Gangs have taken on a negative connotation in our vernacular. I side with a belief that all mankind was born in sin and is in need of a change from the state of enmity held at birth. By default people are geared to hurt others while in pursuit of a personal agenda. Without God or any regard to others and the ecosystem, gangs of humans are prone to destruction, in the name of human progress. Greed and the love of money is the source of counter-productive aims disguised as humane but are meant to obliterate human life upon the planet.
Common to us All
Classifications in the animal kingdom consist of terms like herds (antelope), litters (bear), bands (coyote) flocks (duck), mobs (kangaroos) tribes (monkeys) and clans to name a few. Much like elks, weasels and turkeys; human groupings are called gangs. Gangs are man made entities formed for the advancement of a particular ideology.Examples of human gangs are Democrats, Republicans, Alphas, Deltas, AKAs, Sigmas, Kappas and Omegas. PBA, ERA, NEA, AFL-CIO, ACLU, AFI, KKK, NOW, NAACP, Gambinos, Genoveses, Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings and Skin-heads to name a few. Whether covert or overt these gangs have one thing common they consist of human beings.
I was born this way?
Most human associations are gang related. However, your genome (molecular disposition) is not gang related. Certain conditions at birth are predetermined such as a person's inane abilities, gifts, talents and physical appearance. These are all God given!
When a group is formed to target the destruction of humanity it is an evil-working. In contemporary English we call these groups, gangs. Contrarily, groups that are formed to advance mankind are called organizations. For the sake of somantics lets call, good gangs: organizations and bad gangs: gangs, which is consistence with today's vernacular. Within this construct many times gangs are called organizations and some organizations are really gangs. Don't be mislead by terminology, colors or members. The proof of an organization is manifested by the completion of missions without the death, theft from or destruction of others.
Humans are indoctrinated from the womb with the culture of organizations. Church denominations are gangs in the strictest sense of the definition. It is a misnomer to believe you were born a religious patron even though you may lay in a continuum of tradition. In contrast, many who protest that they were born Baptists, Episcopalians, Catholics, C.O.G.I.C., etc. Denominations are man-made and thus fall out of God-made: Bara (Hebrew) category; but enter the man-category: Asha (Hebrew) category.
It is a misnomer say that you were born a homosexual. What sort of defense is this before a Holy God? A judge does not consider a born-gay defense, nor reduces a sentences for being gay; because, it is not a crime to be such in an American court, but to God it is an abomination. All sin is abhorrent to God. Many say that they were born-gay to remove a sin stench from a soiled conscious. Much as it is impossible for God to make a mistake; it is impossible to manipulate God; saying, that you are a man trapped in a woman's body or the other way around. To attempt to do so in order to please oneself is a lofty deception and may be the origin of multiple personalities, warring within. This source of confusion is soon transmitted into the culture which causes the decline of society. This same culture is the source of the belief that a person is born gay.
Walking through the Midst of Fire and Ice, organizations/gangs best serve mankind when they are an extension of the church. Unlike an organization or gang the church is an organism. The CEO and Founder; yet, lives in the person of Christ Jesus: the risen Savior of all man-kind.
The Church is
dedicated to the conversion of mankind, the purpose of the church is to bring the will of God upon the Earth. Her mission is to change the hearts of people resulting in a positive flow of action that reflects God and ushers peace upon the Earth. Priest leaders hold a rudder of the vehicle created by God. They are occupants that stand against tyranny and publish tidings of peace.
