The story causes me to be extremely angry. So angry ,in fact, that I am unable to muster up any patience or understanding for the ones who are guilty.
Four young adults kidnapped, humiliated, tormented and physically tortured a mentally disabled man for two days. These sociopathic lunatics treated the entire incident as if it was some type of game or entertainment. Their brutal, inhumane acts of evil were all captured on social media and proudly broadcast for the world to see.
Evil. Pure evil from hell. Demonic depravity inspired and empowered by the devil himself.
There are many who disagree of course. Humanists will babble on about social injustices, psychiatric disorders, and the breakdown of family structures.
Nonsense. As a Bible believer, I know that God’s Word speaks directly to the issue. In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we are told what type of human behavior we can expect in the last days before Christ returns. The list is quite descriptive of what we see transpiring daily. The passage concludes by stating “from such turn away.”
While the majority of humans operate with a moral compass, a growing number of them are immoral and purely evil. While Jesus has called me to love my neighbor as myself, I will have nothing to do with those who call evil good and call good evil (Isaiah 5:20). Light can have no fellowship with darkness.
My heart is broken for that poor young man, created in the image of God, who was beaten and abused by four others who were also created in His image. Scripture declares that God is angry with the wicked everyday. God is love but He is also Judge. Surely His heart is broken as well.
