Cold-blooded: (adj) without emotion or pity; deliberately cruel or callous
The reason we call someone a sociopath is because our social abilities should be on a path. When they aren’t, it is odd, it is dangerous and it shows that something is horribly wrong.
Although it seems to be popular to imitate ruthless, the conscience placed into us by a Creator keeps us from being able to pull it off without great personal destruction.
I remember coming into the yard of my home and seeing that my dog had killed some guinea pigs my son was using for his science fair.
I could have sworn that my puppy was smiling.
That canine had no idea that he had done anything wrong. Matter of fact, he seemed a little proud of his teeth prowess.
Not until I began to yell and chase him did he realize there might be a problem and that he should get the hell out of the way.
You see, that’s not the way it is with people.
Maybe we watch too many TV shows.
Maybe that one hundredth horror movie was detrimental to our thinking.
But even though human beings are temporarily capable of cold-blooded actions–where it seems like they have no soul whatsoever–they actually are so tormented that they often end up mentally ill, committing suicide.
The danger with being cold-blooded is that too often guilt sets in–and it’s your own blood that’s cold.
