6-21-2017 Gang Ignorance

“Some therefore cried one thing and some another, for the assembly was confused, and most of them did not know why they had come together” (Acts 19:32 NKJV). Ephesus was known as a center of worship for Diana, an idol goddess of the Ephesians. People came from all around to worship her idol, at her temple, and buy souvenirs to take home and continue their false worship. Paul had successfully preached the difference between the living God, who cannot be represented with anything made with hands, and a false goddess who can do nothing by herself! The mob formed like street mobs today: divided, confused, and ignorant of any purpose. It wasn’t until they were steered against the truth about God, they had any purpose. Gang violence starts with gang ignorance! Solomon said: “Do not associate with those given to change” (Proverbs 24:21 NKJV).
