Proverbs 1:10

My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.

Principle

NEVER underestimate the destructive power of sinful-minded men.

A few days ago, I watched a disturbing video – Christian men were lined up kneeling with their hands tied behind their backs – other men lined up behind them with handguns placed at the back of the captives heads. Someone was rallying the crowd with strong, boastful rhetoric claiming that the Christians were blasphemers of the Prophet and they deserved death. There would be no trial, no court of appeals, no justice – just mob violence enticed by fanatical rhetoric.

Suddenly, one man pulled the trigger – the first Christian man slumped forward – although he was obviously dead – the gunman unloaded the remaining bullets into his body. Just then, the other gunmen followed – twelve men total were killed within seconds – each man receiving a volley of bullets.

My heart ached for the Christian brothers who were martyred that day – but I also was disgusted by the coward act of murder from the mob of men.

Evil is insidious. It is unjustifiable and indefensible. Evil motivated these gunmen, but there is more to the irrational behavior behind this mob violence – it is the dynamic of collaborative craziness. It’s a well documented phenomenon that mobs of men do things that individual men would never do.

Never underestimate the destructive power of sinful-minded men.
