Those who are old and distinguished, educated or credentialed, these are the head, the leaders, the ones who presume themselves as the elite and all knowing.
And among the lesser in society, regardless of status academically or economically, whether middle class or stricken with poverty, of all that could be considered as the tail or hind end of society, it is those that preach and teach lies that are the very bottom of society.
Lies come in all sorts or scenarios. From the academics of education to the philosophies of science, to the politics of social reform, to the gossips of the neighborhood, all are evil to the core.
Anyone and everyone who rejects correct Bible doctrine as the basis of their core beliefs, it is they who are the rot of society and not the heroes, the twisted views of life and not the solutions, the source of self-destruction and not the change for success.
Man is full of plans, none of which will ever work. Man looks for solutions in the things in life, improvements in things, and they are irrelevant to the core problem of mans soul.
Man will attempt to destroy others when they perceive being cheated or slighted in some way.
Man does not look to God and the important matters of their own soul, which will impact their entire eternal destiny.
