What does the bible say about narcissism?

2 Timothy 3:1-6New International Version (NIV)

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God — having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

"They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone."

Note - I respect the Bible, often, because it was a long, deliberate effort by moral people, inspired by the good, and what works, to find some balance and health for society. Of course, they throw sheep into fires and so much more nonsense. Pretty primitive. But not to be discarded. We have a pretty flimsy species, so yas takes what yas gets.

Note: The bible NEVER said that people must hate gays, btw. People can read into the bible just about anything, in order to serve their own selfish designs, hidden behind artificious* moralism. That is another way of describing religions which are based on self-adulation, i.e., on NARCISSISM. Religions are very often primary conduits of narcissism. These corruptions allow and encourage objectification of other peoples, violence against them, and so on. It's a big game of double standards ad blithe denial. Well, more than blithe.

But, it is good to read a religion speaking out against narcissism.

The "wormy" men completely remind me of N-Guy - and now this latest guy - exploiting vulnerable women! Yet, what REAL life is society affording them, other than egoism and TV and violent rap and unemployment. Yes, they are indicative of end-times due to their narcissism - but there are also non-moralistic, ECONOMIC, and CORRUPTION reasons why there is this decline - see, right now, how the T.P.P. is beginning to pass, like bad meat, through our system, where no one speaks up against it, because they are all addicted to iPads and FaceBook and TV and selfish ennui!

Many years ago, I remember myself moving in with a girl who was on welfare, and so I guess I could be called one of these wormy men. But, I was without recourse. I thought that women were equals. I had been shafted so repeatedly by my own family, that I decided to shaft them all right back, and abandon the whole American pie-in-the-sky BS dream - because I had wisdom stretching years ahead of everyone else. I SAW the decline! I decided, then, that I would finally live RIGHT, and love a girl who had been batterred and disabled by life.

Unfortunately, this girl was permanently dysfunctional, and was herself still controlled by the BS society - the BS family crap - that I had decided to move away from. What happened was that it all destroyed my life. I don't know. I wanted to do the right thing. But maybe I had inheritted the same religious narcissism of my family, thinking I could step out of society and into a moral life. Didn't work that way. And so, this somehow proves the REAL narcissists to be right? - Because why? BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE MONEY. That's all it is. That's all it is.

I am not so much that person anymore. I know the truth. I know the pain. I look back at my relatives and am disgusted by the adolescent games they are looping through their brains.

Economically: We are facing a fight of useful CHANGE, versus most everyone in society, who is invested in the STATUS QUO - like OIL, like WAR, like CORPORATISM, like archaic MORALISM and ABUSE OF THE WEAK, OF ANIMALS, OF THE PLANET!!!!!!!
