These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16-20)
In a world where it is increasingly difficult to truly be shocked by displays of depravity, we have to hand it to the four young African Americans in Chicago, they have pulled it off. I have to say, I am truly stunned by what they have allegedly done to a vulnerable human being!
Most people have read the frighteningly sordid account of their crime; how they gained the trust of an 18 year old young man, (described as “special needs), invited him over for a sleepover, then proceeded to force him to drink toilet water, cut him with knives, attempted to scalp him, tortured him with lit cigarettes for two days, binding him with what appears to be duct tape.
The heartless perpetrators, two young men and two young women, gleefully poured out upon the frightened young victim, their rage at white people, and their hatred of Donald Trump as he hopelessly pled and cried for mercy. They forced the traumatized young man to say “I love Black People”, and “@#$% White People”, all the while laughing at his fear and hurt, as they streamed the whole ordeal on Facebook.
How did these young people lose their souls? How does anyone get to the point of no empathy for an obviously child like fellow human being? What dark forces killed these young people’s humanity?
What strikes us also as outrageous, is that they could do this atrocity and seemingly have no sense that what they were doing was wrong in any way, so much so that they proudly streamed it on FaceBook, as though there is a ready made audience to “share” this with who would appreciate it without question.
I think this incident is one of those bellwether episodes, a frightening insight into a dark reality about where a significant portion of our population here in America has gone; These young people are obviously Demonized, and perhaps even possessed.
The reason Demon Possession is somewhat rare, in my view is because God has given all men, whether they are “Saved” or not, certain natural safeguards, spiritual walls in their own person, which allow us to function as free moral agents, responsible people capable of choosing good or evil, otherwise society would be an impossible Hell.
In order for people to become Demon possessed, those God given walls around the soul would have to be carefully dismantled. The inherent conscience, as well as the sense of human empathy, must be deadened in order for the “house to be emptied” and unclean spirits to enter into the person.
Usually this is done through exposure and participation in the occult, or through sexual sin. Violence also will breakdown a person’s resistance to evil. A steady diet of hatred, propaganda, and lies will eventually cause one to succumb to evil, without even realizing it, as the nation of Germany did in the days of Hitler.
This break down of the self, occurs through the constant nourishment of hatreds and resentments, combined with a false sense of “Righteousness” combined with a perpetual sense of “victimhood”, all combine to break down inhibitions, allowing people to treat other human beings in such a demonic way.
I would venture to say these four young African Americans are the products of our failed school systems, which have been infiltrated by leftists, who took over the schools saturating everything, but especially American history with an extremely slanted and divisive version of the past.
If these criminals learned anything in publicly funded school it was that the founders of our nation were slave owners, and that a black man was officially counted as 2/5s of a person, and that Jim Crow and “institutional racism” has kept African Americans as victims to this very day.
Over and over again, into these young souls, the poisonous message is compounded, that ‘all of your problems, miseries and shortcomings are due to the white man’!
After the school has had its effect, the music is “Rap” , which intensifies the deep resentment, hatred of whites, self pity, violent fantasies of hypocrites such as JayZ, NWA, Kanye West and others. A good many of these are deeply involved in the occult, Jay Z and his wife really are demon possessed, and these kids listen to them!
Hollywood only re-enforces the same narrative, ‘Whites don’t get it’, ‘they have profited at the expense of the poor black man’, and American history boils down to the simple theme, that America has always been racist, Christianity was part of the oppression, and the black man has been the perpetual victim. The “Black Victimization” genre in Hollywood is perhaps the most prolific, reinforcing the hatred from “Roots” to “The Help” and hundreds of similar movies in between keep the hatred stewing.
The University and higher education are perhaps the most damaging, allowing reverse segregation, ethnic consciousness classes, and introducing truly divisive and hateful theories such as “White Privilege” , which makes it virtually impossible for true reconciliation.
“White Privilege” is the myth that whether or not I have ever personally been racist, I have benefitted by living in a racist society, at the expense of Blacks. It is like a great big helping of original sin , but without the hope of redemption!
Steeped in such hateful harmful heresy, and absolved of personal responsibility (when the issue of “hate crimes” was raised , a good many in the media proclaimed it impossible for a minority to be racist or to commit hate crimes!) These young people didn’t have a problem with their own depraved and cruel behavior.
It seems they have reprobated themselves, not even a consideration of the golden rule , (How would you feel if your were this young man?) penetrated their conscience.
See how this works? The new righteousness is being a part of the victim class…this is how these demon possessed racists could go about their torture so happily and without a shred of empathy.
These kids, like the thousands who have participated in ‘the knockout game” and other forms of extreme violence against innocent people, actually feel that they are in the right!
Thus these reprobates thought it funny that an obviously special needs young man was crying and very afraid.
This is how they lost their soul.This is how they became possessed.
The left in this country has created this situation.
For their own profit, political and otherwise, Political leaders, from Obama all the way through the left, are guilty of bearing false witness, inciting hatred, lying about America( the very least racist place in the whole world), classifying while groups of people into color blocks, “Whites” and “Blacks” , stripping away personal responsibility from some and heaping great loads of fake responsibility on others. Refusing to teach noble parts of American history, and exaggerating the ignoble parts, to the point where many African Americans, who live in a nation with a black president, black millionaires, and a thriving black middle class, still think it is 1922 as far as race relations go.
Perhaps we can find a way, not to be overcome of this evil, but to overcome evil with good.
We cannot categorize people into blocs, of “white” “black” and “hispanic”, as so many did when an obviously crazed Dylan Roof” shot and murdered a Pastor and several members of an African American Church.Dylan Roof did not represent the “inherent racism” of all White people, He was crazy, perhaps possessed as well, and acting as a free moral agent, responsible for his crime.
Even so, we must refuse the premise of racism. The truth is , there are no “races”. “of one blood He made us all”. We were all there in the garden with Adam and Eve, we all bear ‘the image of God’ and share in the fall of man.Only in Christ can we all be one for the foot of the cross is even. All of us have sinned and all of us can be redeemed.
These young people became demon possessed when, due to a toxic cultural stew of hatred, resentment, false witness, they succumbed their own humanity and opened themselves to evil itself. We should pray for them, and pray for America as well.
A lot of people are going to have to answer for this situation.
We have demanded a God-less society and God has granted us our demand. This is what an increasingly godless society looks like. Romans 1:25-32 is upon us.
Several years ago, in the early 1990s, “diversity” and “multicultural training” began to become popular. Actually, it became quite a money-making venture for those who were pushing it. I worked for the Federal Government, and took a week of one such course from a black couple who was hired at our agency to provide this training to senior officers/supervisors (I was a secretary at the time, and got into the course because of a cancellation). They charged $10,000 per day (remember, this was almost 25 years ago). Needless to say, their “facilitating” method was hostile, and they did not like to be challenged on their views. They divided people into three groups: EuroCentric, AfroCentric, and AsiaCentric. This resulted in stereotyping of each group. One of their criticisms of “EuroCentric” peoples was the tendency to insist on verifying information, as opposed to, for example, the AfroCentric cultures which pass down stories (and where nothing was written down). (Had they ever heard of the scientific method?) They emphasized “validating” experiences and emotions (everyone has experiences, good and bad, but emotions are not a reliable barometer of truth). The message throughout the training was that only white males in American can be racist; blacks cannot be racist, and neither can women. One of the white guests they brought in to talk to our group, business executive who had previously worked with the woman’s husband, described himself as a “recovering racist.” They also believed that whites “benefited by living in a racist society, at the expense of Blacks” whether or not they were racist.
While there is some truth in what they said, I believe most of the problems hitting the black community is the breakdown of the family, particularly the black family, and the high rate of illegitimacy and lack of fathers raising their children. This is ultimately a spiritual issue which cannot be fixed by the Government. Thank God there are many black pastors who recognize this and who are addressing it.
Hey Bill…I enjoy your blog so much. It is so insightful and I learn so much. Could I trouble you with a question please> Why was there so much demon possession in Jesus day? Would there not also be the same in our time…except maybe we don’t acknowledge or recognize it? I would appreciate your insight on this. Thank you!
Thanks JoAnn, So glad you enjoy the blog. There was so much open Demon Possession in Jesus’ day because Satan knew the time had come,(He was familiar with the prophecies and certainly believed them). There is also much more demon possession in areas of open idolatry(India,Africa) although the West is now being demonized en masse as well…due to secularism, our own idols and the fact that once again Satan knows Jesus is coming- I John 4:4
That makes sense Bill. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. Looking up….and keeping my eyes on Jesus! Maranatha Lord Jesus!
How come you did not note the ‘demon-possessed’nature of the white teen who killed innocents inside a church..just noting he was crazed.. but the black teens in your view were obviously demon possessed and sold their souls to the devil..so in your narrative..dylan roof who you aptly named killing several african americans is reedemable..not the other teens
I have stated publically more than once that people like Dylan roof are possessed. This is not about color,it is about the careful cultivation of hate by our cultural “leaders”, many of whom sought to justify what happened in Chicago. I merely pointed out that the glee,cruelty,and venom of the Chicago four could only indicate demon possession. By the way in my humble opinion,they are all redeemable to God!
