Psalm 140: Evil, Violent People

"Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man, preserve me from the violent man..."   Psalm 140:1

This Psalm applies equally to the wicked willed pied piper of lawlessness and his followers as well as collectively to a body of evil men.   From birth, all men and women, unless being regenerated by the Holy Spirit, are unregenerate (spiritually dead), thus their thoughts, words, and deeds are contaminated by evil. Just as David's enemies were evil men so were Jesus Christ's, and such are the enemies--the unregenerate, worldly profane sinners, persecutors and false teachers---of the Lord's faithful people, those born of the Spirit.  (Galatians 4:21-36)

As man is not simply flesh, chemicals, neural circuits, and blood as evolutionary pagan materialists teach, but an inner person, a soul whose citadel is spirit (will, conscience, reason), the man of violence is therefore spiritually dead.  It is his lower person, meaning his soul, that gives rise to his reasoning powers.  His conscience is seared and his will turned toward wickedness so that he breathes out lies, blustering words, misdirection, malice, scorn, destructive criticism, slaughter and death.  He has a frowning, sour, fierce, contemptuous, or perhaps blank countenance (a mask) behind which hide evil intentions and furious actions:

"Such a man was Doeg; who loved evil, and all devouring words, devised mischief, and boasted in it (Psalm 52:) and Herod...who in his wrath ordered the infants in and about Bethlehem to be slain; and the Jews, who were violently set on the death of Christ, and vehemently desired it: and such are all violent persecutors of the church of God, who clothe themselves with the garment of violence, and drink the wine of it..."   Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

Such people are modern Liberals and Leftists: 

The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (The Kindergarten of Evil, Evan Sayet)

"America's liberal left is preoccupied with salacious fantasies of political violence. These take two forms: dreams of leftist insurrection, and nightmares of reactionary bloodshed."   (The Politics of Bloodlust, James Taranto, The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 27, 2011)

Taranto goes on to report that a sympathetic mainstream media suppresses and/or whitewashes the former type of fantasy while treating the latter as if it reflects reality. 

 John Ray, M.A., Ph.D, identifies Leftists as psychopaths and summarizes some of the central characteristics of psychopathy as follows:

"He is not obviously 'mad.' he is often highly intelligent; he is unmoved by brutality (except to enjoy perpetrating it); he has no moral or ethical standards; he is deeply (but discreetly) in love with himself (narcissism) so secretly despises others and thinks they are fit only to be dominated and exploited by him and those like him; he is a great manipulator who loves getting others to do his bidding by deception or otherwise; he is the master of the lie and the false pretense but sees no reason to be consistent from occasion to occasion; he will say anything to gain momentary praise or admiration; his only really strongly felt emotions seem to be hate and contempt and he is particularly enraged by those who have what he wants and will be totally unscrupulous in trying to seize what others have for himself.  But above all, the psychopath does not seem to be able to tell right from wrong and, as a result, does sometimes commit or connive at murders and other heinous crimes with what seems to be a clear conscience."   (

Psychopaths are thoroughly wicked, and because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use their victims for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include:  moral relativism, an overwhelming sense of entitlement, parasitism, psychological and physical bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain (sadism), insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, promiscuity, and irresponsibility .

Omnipotence, in the case of Western "scientific and evolutionary" enlightened Leftists comes from conceptually depriving the Lord of the authoritative power of His own spoken Word in order to give their own words the active force of the Triune Gods creative words. In this way, empowered god-men can unweave and refashion creation, reinvent human beings, paganize Scripture, and creatively destroy the family and society as needed.   They can decide who lives and who must die, what we may have or not have, as well as what we are allowed to know and not know. This is an evil, violent man's power trip.   

What drives the evil, violent man or woman is a ravenous hunger for making other people suffer. Just as normal, decent humans enjoy seeing other people happy and thriving, the psychopath enjoys the opposite.  As their lack of empathy results in blindness to the humanity of their victims this in turn permits victims to be sacrificed without remorse on the altar of narcissism, for with the negation of humanity intended victims are no longer human beings but objects to be used, abused, tormented and discarded at will. This monstrous evil finds expression over and over in the writings of the sexual psychopath, the Marquis de Sade:

"The philosopher sates his appetites without inquiring to know what his enjoyments may cost others, and without remorse." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 26)

Moral imbecility, another hallmark of psychopathy, is the inability to recognize right from wrong independent of disordered passions (i.e., pride, jealousy, covetousness, lust, envy) and attendant impulses and compulsions. To the degree by which the moral sense is corrupt, so is reason. The greater the degree of corruption the more depraved (insane) is reason, meaning that moral imbecility can easily shade into diabolism.

Paul Hollander's book "Political Pilgrims: Western Intellectuals in Search of the Good Society" recounts what depraved Leftist intellectuals and apostate priests did for many decades in the Soviet era. To quote one Amazon reviewer:

"Political Pilgrims is the amazing story of how Western intellectuals embraced Marxist tyrants at the very moment their colleagues were rotting in prison cells, and the common people everyone claimed to be concerned for, were starving. The book relates how cultural and religious leaders from the West, including familiar names, visited the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and other communist countries, and told the most appalling lies." (ibid, Ray)

In our own time obviously depraved Western and American leaders fill our ears with similarly appalling lies.   For instance, while jihadists brutally behead their victims, openly rape Western females, and carry out murderous attacks over and across the West, President Obama uses the authority and prestige of his office to persuade his listeners to believe that what we really know is happening is not happening.

Among well-known psychopaths of the 20th century are Karl Marx,  Pol Pot, Hitler, Beatrice Webb, Margaret Sanger, Lenin, Stalin, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro.  Kaganovitch, Stalin's brother-in-law and closest collaborator described Stalin as no longer human:

"Even when he exhibited some emotions, they all did not seem to belong to him. They were as false as the scale on top of armor...He was not human at all..." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 53)

In pursuit of their Godless fantasy, said Sayet, Leftists and cultural elites throughout Hollywood and media together with influential liberals situated within the White House, State Department, Congress, academia, seminaries, Pentagon, and 'justice' institutions actively promote evil.  Thus,

"…..sin is their trade and business, and the constant course of their lives" as is actively persuading children "to join with them in the sins they are addicted unto, and are continually employed in…"

In this context, the evil, violent mans' favorite Scripture when hypocritically admonishing and scape-goating the people he hates is "judge not."  For the evil-minded evil is whatever scape-goats do and truth is the idea that reality exists only within the spiritually dead heart of the evil, violent man or woman.

Sayet believes this will ultimately result in widespread malevolent idiocy resulting in sadistic brutality, murder, breakdown and implosion of America followed by brutal tyranny. 

Our age is a time of increasing evil. Thus the good man of clear conscience is witness to an explosion throughout our population of evil, violent men and women.   From the highest corridors of power to the lowest levels of society, implacable, sadistic, unpitying, unrelenting, unscrupulous, murderous, evil men and women who care for nothing but the indulgence of their malice are increasingly in control of our society.  Planned Parenthood is a bastion of evil.  Perverse sex educators, pornographers, and those who wantonly destroy our nation in a variety of insidious ways while deliberately sowing seeds of division and hate are evil people. Our evil government aids, abets, and protects evil terrorists, sex predators, illegal aliens, drug dealers, murderers, pornographers and evil men and women of Sodom who not only persecute and financially destroy decent Christian bakers, florists, bed and breakfast owners, and other small business owners but deliberately subvert and pervert their children.  Elton John approves of such evil for children as young as six.

As reported by Sofia Vazquez Mellado, British singer Elton John has publicly criticized Luigi Brugnaro, the mayor of Venice, for withdrawing several preschool books that promote homosexual behavior to children under the age of six:

"During the past weekend, John called Brugnaro "extremely silly" and "boorishly bigoted" in an Instagram post." (Elton John bashes Venice mayor for withdrawing preschool books promoting homosexuality, Life Site News, Aug 20, 2015)

Elton John reveals his wicked will and perverse, malicious intentions by bashing the mayor of Venice for withdrawing preschool books promoting perversion.   So in other words, if you try to protect children from the evil intentions of evil people then you are yourself evil, or in Elton John's words, boorishly bigoted.   No John, the protectors of children are not evil.   It is you John, whose heart is evil, and unless you confess and repent of your sins to Christ our Lord, the Physician of our immortal souls, then you will spend eternity in hell with unknown numbers of evil, violent spirits from the beginning of the world, for as Jesus said to his disciples:

"Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come."  Luke 17:1 "Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Matthew 18:7 "And many shall follow their shameful ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." 2 Peter 2:2
