This tragedy makes no sense outside the existence of intelligent evil:
A 16-year-old boy killed in a shootout Saturday with police in Maryland prompted the search of his home over 500 miles away in Kentucky, where authorities found the bodies of his parents and younger sister.
Friends and relatives of Jason Hendrix were struggling to understand how the boy, a faithful churchgoer who was baptized just two months ago, could end up as the suspect in the slayings.
Hendrix, a Kentucky high school ROTC student and active church member, was angry at his parents for taking away his computer privileges when he’s suspected of killing his family execution-style before fleeing to Maryland, where he died in a shootout with police, the town’s police chief said Sunday.
Influence of the rulers, authorities, cosmic powers over this present darkness, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
The Fallen seem to love this kind of story.
Christina Booth, 28, called 9-1-1 early Sunday morning after she tried to kill her 2-year-old daughter and 6-month-old twins with a knife while her husband was home, police said. The children were bleeding from their necks when officers arrived at the couple’s home and found the children upstairs, police added.
We see something like this in the news far too often. Two, maybe three generations damaged in one fell swoop.
Forward into the bloody past:
New recruits to a vicious Mexican drug cartel were forced to eat the hearts of murder victims in a twisted scheme to prove their loyalty, officials said.
Hopefuls who wanted to join La Familia Michoacana were reportedly fed the internal organs during gruesome initiation ceremonies designed to roof out infiltrators or other disloyal elements.
Witnesses told government security bosses how La Familia, and offshoot an offshoot group called the Knights Templar, would also sometimes force potential cartel members to dismember victims while they were still alive.
Continuing a long and gruesome tradition of pagan blood sacrifice in Mesoamerica.
Can the world get any darker? How can any man fantasize about raping and murdering a small child–yet this man does:
According to court documents, DeFoggi wanted to meet up with a fellow PedoBook member to fulfil his fantasy of raping and murdering a small child.
God must surely have a special place reserved for this kind of depravity.

[T]ragedy struck in a Pinellas County home on New Year’s Day, when a son with a history of mental illness plotted his mother’s murder–with an ax. Tampa Bay Times has the story:
Gualtieri said Christian Gomez, 23, was upset because his mother wanted him to move some boxes into the attic of their house. So on New Year’s Eve, he killed Maria Suarez Cassagne in the garage, repeatedly hitting her with an ax until he severed her head, Gualtieri said.”I don’t think it gets much worse than that,” Gualtieri said Thursday.
“This whole circumstance is probably one of the worst, certainly, that we’ve ever seen, with a decapitation and the head stuck in a garbage can. It’s terrible.”

According to LancasterOnline, “A man killed his wife during an argument Christmas Eve, then took their two children to celebrate Christmas at his parents before calling police to confess.” Why would this seemingly ‘level-headed’ husband and father suddenly bash his wife’s face in and then murder her with an ax?
Human sin and spiritual wickedness. A family is destroyed, two children will be forever scarred, and a woman has lost her life. We pray the Lord will help these two children.

Can the world get much more depraved? Every day, we find story after story depicting humanity’s descent into paganism, superstition, and outright evil. Now this comes from India about a boy who was taken by ‘religious’ men who sliced off his genitals for use in rituals. How long, oh Lord? How long?

Evil is alive and well in Mississippi:
Investigators are hoping Jessica Chambers’ final words will lead them to the killer or killers who burned the 19-year-old teenager alive in a gruesome murder Saturday that has stunned the small Mississippi community of Courtland.
Chambers, of Panola County, was found badly burned on a road near her burning car Saturday night in what authorities have labeled a homicide. […]
Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby said the young woman died after she was doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire on a road in Courtland, Miss., a town with a population of 460 people. […]
“They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out,” her father, Ben Chambers, told the station as he fought back tears. “She had a big gash on top of her head.”
“When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire … only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet,” said Chambers, an employee of the Panola Country Sheriff’s Department.
Because of the connection between the young woman’s father and the police, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the search.
This report from South Africa illustrates the darkness of human souls in all parts of the world. Early this morning, in Johannesburg, SA, a man emerged onto a landing outside his apartment, clutching a Bible. According to witnesses, this man began reading scripture aloud to anyone who would listen. The report does not include what scriptures he chose, but rather than endure sound doctrine, the crowd both below on site, but also on social media, began to encourage the man to leap to his death.
“Jump, jump, jump!” is what the crowd chanted, according to eyewitnesses. Sadly, the man–whose mental state is unknown at this time, nor is it known why he chose to climb out his window and read the word of God–this man is now dead.
How dark and depraved must humans be to treat a fellow human with such disdain? Wickedness knows no borders. It is everywhere. We pray this man is now with Christ.
