For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if one died for all, then all died. II Corinthians 5:14
Our next missionary journey was to go inside a "Christian" motorcycle club, although it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between the Christian and the one-per-center! (Outlaw) Sometimes outlaw bikers such as the Banditos or Hells Angels wander in for one reason or another.
The leader of this club was writing scripts and he and his wife were on shaky ground and many of the members were on drugs, it was a flying circus! We did what we could by praying for them and building a relationship of trust. One day the leader asked me to go to their yearly meeting in Phoenix so I said yes and we drove out. When we arrived we were to meet an ex-Bandito named "Sanitary!" I asked, Why do they call him Sanitary? He told me he was the cleanup man for the club! (Hitman)
We met him at a restaurant and he was a really nice guy, polite and had a peaceful spirit. When I began to tell him that Mary Ann's uncle who was involved in drugs was de-capitated by a Bandito, his face turned white and he told me he was the one who did it! Help me, Jesus! Anyway, we had a good time and met some really interesting folks! Outside of the confines of "Church," there is a world so dark that you would never know it existed unless the Holy Spirit would lead you there!
And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. II Corinthians 5:15
