11 He hath
said ['amar] in his heart, [leb] God ['el] hath forgotten: [shakach]
he hideth [cathar] his face; [paniym] he will never [netsach] see
[ra'ah] it. KJV-Interlinear
11 He says
to himself, "God has forgotten; He has hidden His face; He will never see
The wicked person, or rather the person who lacks knowledge in their soul, looks at life as though it is all Gods fault, or as though God does not interact in life, or that God has forgotten, or has looked away, is not interested, or simply does not exist, we are all on our own.
Life to the naïve (anyone who lacks doctrine in their soul), is nothing more than the animalistic tendencies of life, or whatever they believe.
They see and hear and smell and feel and taste. They have their needs and wants and desires in life, but that is all limited to ones environment.
They believe that they can figure things out in life, but in fact are clueless about life.
The highest IQ, or any other worldly attribute, is not an advantage in reality. Life is all relative to the wicked.
Whatever is agreed on, is ok. And that means that bias or prejudice or anything that is socially acceptable is ok, as long as the majority accepts it. Standards are lowered, integrity is lowered, the strong rule and the weak are expendable.
There are four sets of laws that rule the world and life.
When doctrine is not present, the jungle rules apply. This is Satan's domain and the policy of evil. No one is ever safe in the jungle. No one ever wins in the jungle. Even the strong lose sooner or later. Everyone is subject to the laws of the jungle.
Parallel to and running concurrent with the jungle rules, are the laws of divine establishment. These are rules established by God to run in contrast to the jungle. Establishment principles serve to stabilize humanity and that in turn serves to perpetuate human history. Establishment principles include but are not limited to, volition, authority, marriage, family, nationalism, patriotism, the rule of law and due process, free enterprise, freedom, liberty, justice and so forth. God is the author of the laws of divine establishment.
Overriding all of these laws is the third level of rule which is common grace. Grace is Gods favor, and common grace applies to all of humanity, both believer and unbeliever. Common grace makes available the air that you breathe, the rules that you live by, the gospel that gives everyone the chance for salvation, the control that God has over history, and so forth.
The fourth level of rule is greater grace, and that applies to spiritually mature believers only. As the believer is more and more obedient to God, confesses regularly, studies regularly, learns consistently and grows up, then greater and greater favor from God, applies to them and their life. This makes their life here and now more meaningful and purposeful and complete, and their life in eternity beyond imagination.
Those who lack doctrine, for whatever reason, lose out and never see the opportunities that are clearly available and easily obtainable for everyone. They just assume in their blindness, that none of this is available. They assume that they know all they need to know or have all they need to get by, or that there is nothing more in life beyond their perception, or they simply invent their own outlook on life.
