about this item

What if you had no books or religion that provided you with a set of governing statutes, regulations or a code of conduct? What would you do? How would you act? The world is in constant search for something or someone to show them the way. Here’s the thing. The creator doesn’t love anybody else more than it loves you. The last time I checked God is not a respecter of persons. Meaning everyone is equal in the eyes of God. We all have a set of special talents that we are given to contribute to the world. I used to pose the question. If every religion makes the claim that they hold the keys to everlasting life or salvation, what will become of the people who have no religious text to read? What about the ones who can’t attend worship in a building? Will they be left out? After all, God created the aboriginal people living in the jungles and remote areas of the world didn’t it? Chapter 10 verse 34 of the King James Version of the Holy Bible states, “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are GODS?” Using this quote does not imply any favor for one religious sect over the others. It was used to impress upon you that the human being possesses god like qualities that are rarely if ever exercised. Growing up in urban Detroit I had often heard the phrase What’s up GOD? This question implied that I or anyone else on the receiving end of the inquiry was a manifestation of God in the flesh. None of us ever rejected this notion because it was music to our ears. But it was also very avant-garde at that particular time during the mid-nineties. I had friends refer to each other and myself as a God Body. Now that I think about it we often heard people being referred to as GODS in many of the east coast hip hop songs during that time. It just didn’t register with us that we had any of these qualities to actually become like God. The only God I knew at the time was in the sky. If I was God then who did my grandparents go to church to praise on Sundays? Herein lied my issue with those phrases. The behavior associated with the people using those phrases was not reminiscent of God or anyone of significant power for that matter. Lacking confidence, wallowing in poverty, acting afraid, shucking blame and being deceitful could not be traits synonymous with the creator of the universe. This concept prompted me to begin evaluating the overall behavior of man. I subconsciously began putting together my own code of what I called G like behavior. The G was short for God, although my understanding of a G growing up was to be a gangster. The most peculiar piece to all of this was that God could also be very gangster at times. By being gangster I’m speaking to completely taking over a situation and doing what “GOD” wants to do when GOD wants to do it. This of course while garnering the respect of anyone or anything present during that moment. In my neighbor
