Narcissism in today’s Society…

20 Aug


2 Timothy 3:1-7, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Narcissism is defined as the inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vain. One of the main objectives of the enemy was to turn Mankind against its creator in rebellion against God and unto Himself to receive their glorification. This plan has been in fruition for the past millennium, with Satan and his Fallen Angels looking for the opportunity to lie and deceive many into offering their worship unto the Lord of deceit. Within the most recent years his plan has taken taken off, namely by the crippling of the American economy. In times of prosperity human beings are kinder and more trustworthy of people and their situations, but in times of strife and hardship normal people turn selfish and more focused on themselves than helping their fellow man out in a time of need. This same situation befell the children of Israel in the Book of Exodus, by them wanting to do more for themselves than for God. In this troublesome world we live the people of today have done the same. This agenda as stated before is to shift man’s focus from God and unto himself, robbing himself of that perfect communion with God in prayer and meditation. Satan when he was Lucifer in Heaven had this same mind frame, to shift the worship of God unto himself Isaiah 14:13 reads, ” For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.” Narcissism leads to vanity and selfishness, two of the main qualities the Most High despises due to the fact that the Lord wishes for all of Humanity to have fellowship and achieve oneness in worship. (Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”) In times of hardship we should turn more to God instead of from him, only He knows the right path for you to take and not yourself. I urge us all to take the time away from your Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace to show love to someone else and let them know that God is still on the throne and Jesus still saves! Shalom…
