Evil is running rampant across our nation and across the world. What is the definition of evil, the ultimate, original sin? According to some it’s pride – not in the sense that we’re proud of our accomplishments but rather, in the sense that Satan displays it. It’s that arrogance and concern only for themselves that narcissists exhibit. They work to bring about their own will, while the cost to others is irrelevant to them. People are objects only for their use; they have NO empathy or concern for others.
In fact, they can’t stand the idea of imperfection or sin, but instead of examining their own hearts, they choose to displace it onto everyone else, and then work to destroy that sense of imperfection they see in those around them. They are deadly, and recent studies confirm what we’ve learned over the years about them, and what the Bible tells us – that they gravitate to power, and therefore, often are found in high-level positions. Beyond this, roughly the same number of psychopaths can be found in prison populations as in high-power positions. Why do some end up at the top and others at the very bottom? We’re not sure because a factor in both is above-average intelligence – but that’s the spread, and now, it’s roughly twenty percent of the population.
