Outlaw or Elect?

Laughlin NV Incident

A few years ago, a long-standing feud between the Hells Angels and the Mongols, two of the most notorious motorcycle clubs in the country, erupted in a bloody riot at a crowded Nevada casino. Dozens of shots were fired, several people were brutally beaten and stabbed, and when the dust cleared, three bikers were dead. Detectives recovered 14 guns, 107 knives, two hammers, two wrenches and nine flashlights from trashcans, slot machines and other places.

What can this incident teach us about outlaw motorcycle clubs, ourselves, and being a Christian man?

*This post in no way intends to portray any club as “outlaw” that does not intend to be and does not seek to be a complete and definitive source of information on any motorcycle club. For information on clubs directly from the club themselves, please see the end of this post for links.

First Annual HCC Fall Ride – Success!

Mid-Ride shot

With sixteen bikes of varying types, single riders, passengers, and ecumenical diversity, our first ride was a great example of what “the church” should look like! Regardless church of record, manufacturer of bikes, color of bike, style of bike, or age of rider, we all love the same thing and are united because of that. That love for the open road can be likened to our love for Christ as the head of the church. A common love for the road and riding brought us together for this ride, and a love of Christ – the head of the church – brings us together as Christians. Just as we rode together with different makes of bikes, so the church works together with a mix of people and gifts. We don’t all have to look the same, act the same, and do the same things to be critical to the function of the church body. I hope that this annual ride continues to provide a metaphor for the body of Christ, welcoming all gifts, and ministering to those not yet part of the body.
