a. Degeneracy is the decline from normal or superior standards to inferior or subnormal standards.
b. Degeneracy is also loss of integrity, resulting in a state of deterioration,
c. Degeneracy is the process of passing from the higher to the lower; to decline progressively.
Religious degeneracy of the Jews = going from the superior standards of the Mosaic Law to the inferior standards of internal and external explosion and apostasy.
Historical degeneracy = going from the superior standards of establishment power and authority to the inferior and subnormal standards which distort authority into tyranny and power, resulting in persecution.
Historical degeneracy persecutes religious degeneracy.
The exception is where religious degeneracy has historical power, as occurred in Spain in the Fifteenth century, and with the Catholic church during the Middle Ages.
In Christianity, the superior standard of the PPOG is rejected, and the inferior standard of legalism, works orientation, the dog and pony show, or antinomianism is substituted as the Christian way of life.

ISA 5:6 And I will lay it waste; it will not be pruned or hoed, but briars and thorns will come up. I will also charge the clouds to rain no rain on it.

Scar tissue of the soul, hardness of the heart, is the result of prolonged residence and function inside the cosmic system. There is generally a logical retrogression in which blackout of the soul precedes scar tissue of the soul, or is coterminous with it.
What blackout of the soul is to the left lobe of the soul (mind), scar tissue of the soul is to the right lobe (heart).
