When you watch a horror movie about monsters or psycho killers, they all have one thing in common that is supposed to bring fear to your heart.
These “things” will stop at nothing! Is that a character flaw? That alone, no. The reason they don’t stop is they are focused on one thing. Obsessed, if you will, single-minded to get what they want. Problem with scary movies is they usually want to harm or kill someone. Usually it’s some innocent person that doesn’t even know the perpetrator of this evil. Never met them, never wants to meet them and hopes it will crawl back into hell from whence it came!
Complete and utter lack of compassion and empathy is shared by all. I guess that’s why I have no sympathy for murderers of any kind. I don’t compare those that have had to kill in self-defense or for the good of all as murderers or even killers. They did what they had to do against what their personal beliefs were for the good of mankind or to save themselves from someone who didn’t give them a choice in the matter. That is very different from having the heart of a monster. In fact many of those people are heroes.
The real monsters are many now because most don’t believe in God. That belief alone says you have no faith. Faithless people are capable of anything and it’s not likely it will be anything positive. They are empty vessels and all vessels will be filled with something whether they know it or not. Jesus spoke of this when he referred to the body as the house and it was well swept after an exorcism but must be filled in a way as to not invite more evil spirits. He also made reference to serving. Everything a man does reflects his true heart and who he serves. Who do you serve?
All God’s children fill their vessels with love and they share this love in all that they do.
My mother lied to me as a child when she told me there was no such thing as monsters. Every time we listen to the latest horror fest on the news, we know for certain that monsters really do exist. But much like the monsters in the movies, they never win.
