A Preliminary Statement on Homo homini lupus

How are we to account for the deranged enthusiast, that hidden animal clenched in the jaws of idolic night mania?

We say the inner man, who is part lupus, is always and everywhere at war against himself. This internal war manifests itself in external realities. If Lupus-Cain is given a night vision, then he will enact the vision in either thought or act. If Lupus-Cain beholds the beautiful form in the light of day, then he will respond in either thought or act. When Lupus-Cain is chained, he responds in thought only. When Lupus-Cain slips the chain, he responds in act.

While in the throes of rebellion, the inner lupus desires not peace and calm, but calamity and lifeblood. The inner lupus gently licks the marrow from bones splintered in a most violent manner. With indifference, the inner lupus tears its meat from its neighbor. This is the essence of lupine humanity. This is the shadow side of the human being.

The outbreak of Lupus-Cain in the human subject does not come about directly, but as the subject believes the exceptional case has been reached when they may let the wolf howl and then break loose.

  1. Reed Here says:

    Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

    2 Peter 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

    Romans 16:18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.

    1 John 2:26 I write these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you.

  2. Johannes Anti-Hominem says:

    “Yet Wisdom is justified by all her children.” – Luke 7:35

  3. Reed Here says:

    James 3:15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
    1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,”
    1 Corinthians 2:14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
    Romans 1:22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
    Revelation 9:11 They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.

  4. Johannes Anti-Hominem says:

    For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.

    Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age?

    Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

    For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.

    For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.

    For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called…Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

    For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.”

    – Saul’s first letter to Corinth, chapter 1.

    I repeat, let no one think me foolish. But even if you do, accept me as a fool, so that I too may boast a little.

    I have been a fool! You forced me to it, for I ought to have been commended by you. For I was not at all inferior to these super-apostles, even though I am nothing.

    – Saul’s second letter to Corinth, chapter 11.
