Scores of Christians are in one way or another connected to someone who has a Narcissistic Personality Disorder either through marriage, church fellowship, withing the circle of friends, or at their workplace, causing them much sorrow, turmoil, and headache in life. Narcissists are characterized by their feelings of self-importance. They have a sense of entitlement, and demonstrate grandiosity in their beliefs and behavior. They have a strong need for admiration, but lack feelings of empathy for others. These qualities are usually defenses against a deep feeling of inferiority and of being unloved. It is especially their inability to empathize with others that is so striking. You will never hear a narcissist say things like; “How are you feeling?”, “Is there anything that I might have done that hurt you?”, “How can I help you or be a blessing to you?”, “I am very sorry for causing you pain, please forgive me”, “You are wonderful and special to me”, “I would love to have your input in my life.” On the contrary, a narcissistic person is always busy pushing blame away from themselves and onto others, and will not take responsibility for his or her wrong actions, no matter what; it’s always somebody else’s fault! Narcissism is nothing but plain selfishness and demonic. Here is what the Bible says about it: “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” Philippians 2:3-4 NLT
Narcissists are also the type that will act religious, but will reject the power that could change and make them godly. But as I said before, they absolutely see no need for change or repentance, because it is impossible for them to admit that they do anything wrong! The Bible says to “Stay away from people like that!” (See 2. Timothy 3:5)
