What does the Bible say about gangs?
Here's the answer:
The Bible says we should spend time around people who honor God. Those who are in gangs do not honor Him.
Gangs are often centered around violence, drugs, and alcohol. These activities do not honor God or draw us closer to Him. Instead, they often have the purpose of doing evil.
The Bible tells us we should be careful who we interact with. If we are around bad people in gangs, it will rub off on us. Choose your friends wisely. If anybody pressures you to do something wrong, you have the right to walk away.
"Don't let anyone fool you. 'Bad companions make a good person bad'" (1 Corinthians 15:33).
"So be very careful how you live. Do not live like people who aren’t wise. Live like people who are wise" (Ephesians 5:15).
"Blessed is the person who obeys the law of the LORD. They don’t follow the advice of evil people. They don’t make a habit of doing what sinners do. They don’t join those who make fun of the LORD and his law" (Psalm 1:1).
