I remember asking myself, “How can she act so horribly and claim to be a Christian? Isn’t her god loving and kind?” Like most Christians, my mother read the bible ALL the time, paid her tithes and offerings, and prided herself in her faith in God. In fact, I often woke up to the sound of her praying at 6 am, yet she is still hell on wheels! How can this be? It wasn’t until I started reading the bible for myself that I quickly discovered where her narcissistic behavior stemmed from….her God!
Yes, the God of the bible who is worshipped by the three-headed dog of religion; Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is a narcissist who has poured his narcissistic spirit (holy ghost) into his millions of worshippers.
Don’t believe me?
Let’s revisit the classic character traits of a narcissist.
God’s Narcissistic Traits
Pompous sense of importance
God told his followers they could have no other god before him. Exodus 20:3 If they disobeyed, he threatened to forsake and destroy them.
Divides his children into two categories: golden children and scapegoats
He treats his “golden children,” with love and kindness as long as they are obedient to his will. “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16
The “scapegoats” or gentiles were often forsaken and abused by God and his golden children due to their unwillingness to follow his rules. “They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.” Ephesians 4:18
Believes he is better than every other god
He believes he is the only deity that matters. “I am the Lord, and there is no other. Besides me, there is no God;” Isaiah 45:5
Requires excessive admiration and praise
He surrounds himself with angels and beings who worship him day and night making himself the center of attention. “Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple;” Revelations 7:15
Hurts people who refuse to obey him
He feels vindicated in destroying the lives of people who do not follow his instructions. Promising to curse your business, family, health, mental state, and everything you attempt to do. “But it shall come about, if you do not obey the LORD your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes with which I charge you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you….” Deuteronomy 28:15-68
Lack of empathy and Narcissistic Rage
There were several incidents where humanity was destroyed simply because he became upset. Remember Noah and the flood? “All the inhabitant of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does what he wills with the hosts of heaven and the inhabitants of the earth.” Daniel 4:35
God told his followers he is a jealous God. “You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,” Exodus 20:5 No wonder mama tried to curse my children…
He promised to steal other people’s wealth and give it to his golden children. “When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, 11 houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied,” Deuteronomy 6:10-11
His actions are unpredictable
His actions towards people vary based on how he feels. “So, he has mercy on whomever he chooses, and he hardens the heart of whomever he chooses.” Romans 9:18
The more I analyzed his actions and the actions of the narcissistic people who fill the pews and synagogues, it became blatantly clear: I did not desire to have a relationship with this god. Pastor Porkshop encouraged my mom to act in a “godly” fashion and, trust me, she has NOT strayed! In fact, the demonic environment she calls church has fostered her narcissistic tendencies, building her up in self-righteousness and pride.
Unfortunately, she is one of many who will hurt you and feel justified in doing so. Therefore, I highly recommend you stay clear of these religious organizations if you desire to live a peaceful life. The minute you fail to follow their rules, they will turn on you like a rabid dog, proclaiming they are about their father’s business!
