Narcissist and God: Love-Hate Relationship

Very interesting youtube video with information about narcissism / religion combination

 

Here is a couple of quotes from : Appendix: Jesus Christ, narcissist 

Gurus at the center of emergent cults are inevitably narcissistic, if not outright narcissists. The self-imputation of superiority, epiphanic knowledge, and infallibility and the assumption that others need and crave the guru’s message are at the heart of an elaborate construct which often borders on the psychotic:”

and

“Contrary to his much-cultivated image, Jesus, like the vast majority of cult leaders, lacked empathy and was a heartless and irresponsible manipulator whose magical thinking ruined the lives of many. He instructed his followers to commit acts that must have had harshly adverse impacts on their hitherto nearest and dearest. Jesus monopolized the lives of his disciples to the exclusion of all else and all others:”

I’ve often wondered if there may in fact be some sort of narcissistic connection within aspects of religion.I wouldn’t be surprised if it were found out, that religion can also in fact become “a social vehicle, so that this illness could flourish. Like some kind of infection (like at a epigenetic level or whatever )  changing organisms . This problem is about a “sickness”, not personal choice

Empathy in regards to faith abuses. Seems to be lacking. Because so many folks whom actively seek a place for themselves in eternity, act as if “the end justify the means”

Perhaps ? this could help to explain why so-few Christian folk even bother to think about “faith abuse” or these cult issues. And also why so few are actively involved in actually trying to help to do something to help stop faith abuses

The end (goal eternity) justify the means

Who? else matters.What? else matters.Just as long as the religious-narcissist “hope” for eternity is achieved (it dont matter if there is no such thing as eternity) .

You bet that very few of these faithful folk will even care to “think” that so called laws of “religious liberation”,are in fact also being used as a vehicle of religious tyranny (cults and so on) .

Sure.They might not” purposely” turn a blind-eye to faith abuses.

It’s more likely, that the trance that is being created, by the theists constant faithful focus on “eternity”, also effects their mindfulness of a lot of what is actually happening all around about them here on-earth right now

Worldwide Christianity

  1. will be quite happy for many generations to have continually turned a blind eye to some aspects of very cunning deceitful ongoing religious tyranny happening right there all around about them,and even right within their own town that they live in
  2. yet will soon be all “up in arms” and become extremely sad/angry upon hearing how some Islamist extremest’s are cutting off Christian heads over-seas

 

Could this same phenomena perhaps also help to explain why it is that priests and Popes had happily swept sex abuse under the carpet so as to help “save face” of the Church

I mean to say.Who? else really matters that much.And what? else really matters that much.So long as the almighty church-group doesn’t ever need to be the one to “lose face”

And then what about the Exclusive Brethren type cults too.Just check out their “narcissistic” air of self importance in which they live..No room even left, for natural love of family kinship to even be able to “break-through”

No way.Because. The end (goal) justifies the means

Who? else really matter.And what? else really matter anyway. Just as long as Exclusive Brethren members will never ever need to actually publicly admit to obviously being extremely wrong. To have helped harmed many.

In those folks dark history back at Aberdeen. We can plainly tell how they would seem to have so many symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder

Here is a link to information of the Aberdeen issue that i have mentioned above. I dare you to follow this link, have a read and have listen to a copy of  tapes of the Brethren “Christian” meeting at Aberdeen

And you can also read the transcript of what was being said, within that tape of that Brethren Christian meeting at Aberdeen here too http://www.discourses.org.uk/History/TheAberdeenIncident.pdf

Then come back here to talk to me. And tell me that you feel that you cannot see any evidence in the slightest of a  narcissistic personality disorder

 

Below is a link to some information in regards to the saying “the end justify the means ”

quote

“You can use bad or immoral methods as long as you accomplish something good by using them.”

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
