Destroy, ‘asham,’ means to fail in ones duty, to be found guilty, to punish, to destroy.
The evil, the wicked, the ones who reject truth, fail because they pursue their own counsel. When truth is rejected, then one has only lies to follow. But in following lies, one has to have an imagination for invention of philosophy, in order to develop that religion or philosophy.
But lies are false. Lies have no substance. Lies have no contact or matching objective in reality.
The ones who reject Gods word, reject God. The ones who reject God, reject His plan and impose their own plan in its place.
They do this during the course of their life. The repetition, the multitude, the abundance of their transgressions, is established by the pattern of life they have chosen and pursue and follow throughout their life.
A mistake or two does not establish a pattern. But a pattern is established by the daily, monthly, yearly and even a lifetime or repetitively doing the same things, over and over again.
Subscription to lies means rejection of truth. Rejection of truth is a rebellion. And the rebellion against truth, is a rebellion against the source of truth, God.
Because spiritually negative people reject truth, then they subscribe to lies. Lies have no basis in reality, therefore, one must work harder, think harder, invent harder, in order to fabricate a philosophy or pattern of belief in which they can be faithful.
They are guilty by their own thoughts. They are guilty by their own hands. They are condemned by their own decisions. All, substantiated by the pattern of repetitive pursuit they themselves have chosen for themselves.
Wicked people, spiritually negative people, are not restricted to criminals and thugs, but includes every person who does not live in the fellowship sphere of the spiritual life. Most wicked people are wicked by virtue of their being indifferent toward God and truth.
Anything outside of the fellowship sphere, is a rebellion against God and truth, since being outside of the fellowship sphere (living outside of Gods guidance) is in fact living in the carnal world (living under the sin natures guidance).
