A man was going on an African Safari.
He had hired another man that was purported to be the best
guide in the area.

He asked the guide, "Is it true that the animals will not bother
you if you carry a torch?”

The guide answered, "It depends on how fast you carry it!”

Prov 28:15
As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear;
so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.

Light from the Word.

In his book, "Our Character Our Future," Alan Keyes tells about
a gang shooting in Los Angeles.
A certain Wayne Capers was killed by a rival gang while sitting
on a bench in Denker Park.
However, a stray bullet also killed King Clark, who was
Mr. Clark was sitting in his living room preparing for a Bible
study class.

Gangs have become "wicked rulers" in many neighborhoods.
People are suffering because illegal weapons are used by immoral
people in a show of power.
Drugs are being sold to children and young people.

In 1967, the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) provided a grant
of almost $1 million to work with rival gangs in Chicago on a
job training program.
Nicolas Lemann, in his book "The Promised Land," reported that
"in the history of the OEO, there was not a grant that was as
complete a failure.”

Rehabilitation without rejuvenation through salvation is an
utter impossibility!
The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart!
Man is "desperately wicked" (Jeremiah 17:9), and must be
changed from the inside out!

Let's just face it: It's a JUNGLE out there!
And the only way to change it is to change the creatures.
ONLY Jesus can do that!

In order to change America, even the problem of gangs,
the Gospel of Jesus needs to be preached by Christians.

The most effective answer to the disintegration of our country
is a matter of obedience by Christians!

Run your life’s race carrying the “torch” of the Gospel of Christ!

Love ya!
